This anti-cancer regime was devised
by Dr Max Gerson in the 1920's. It is based on a low-salt, organic
vegan diet, with fruit and vegetable juices hourly, and coffee enemas.
It is an extremely strict regime with some patients finding it quite
difficult to follow because of its uncompromising nature. Gerson
reasoned that an excess of Sodium (salt) disrupts the functioning
of the liver, pancreas, thyroid gland and immune system, and by
instituting an alkaline diet - ie. one mainly of fruit and vegetables
- imbalances can be corrected.
The method is quite controversial as
it can lead to side effects like weight loss and weakness, but some
independent studies have shown it to have a significant effect,
with those cancer patients on the diet having a higher survival
rate than average.
Gerson Cancer Therapy is especially
useful in treating the following health conditions:
All types of cancer
