The Gerson Therapy for Cancer

Mark and I have now watched two documentaries about the Gerson Cure. We came by them as a result of being avid watchers of food documentaries in general, no worries, we’re both fine as far as we know. A little crazy maybe, but I’m not sure we can cure that with a coffee enema.

Anyway, I’m haunted by the fact (?) that Max Gerson died from arsenic poisoning. Here he was, a German expat, 50 years ahead of his time, preaching organic food consumption and coffee enemas as a way to cleanse the body of cancer, TB and other illness. The traditional medical community seems to think him an absolute quack but then you have the adoration of his patients, among them Albert Schweitzer, M.D and family to contrast with the charges of quackery.

The Gerson Institute does not claim to be able to heal everyone, every time. They clearly state the opposite, in fact. There are testimonials from many satisfied, healthy, cured patients, even some from the families of those who did not live, but obviously those for whom it didn’t work cannot comment.

Were one of us to find that we had some sort of cancer, we would try this treatment I think. The reality may be different should we be faced with it though. I would love to hear any and all comments on this topic.
