How Gerson diet therapy works
The Gerson Therapy uses an all-encompassing approach that focuses on treating the causes of disease rather than the symptoms. The approach generally focuses on detoxifying the body of the toxic pollutants and carcinogens that enter our body each day through foods we eat and air we breathe. This is mainly accomplished through diet modification.
Participants in the Gerson therapy program ingest between 15 and 20 pounds of organic vegetables and fruits each day. Much of this is in the form of raw juice, one glass every hour. Raw and cooked solid foods are also consumed, as long as they fit within the organic vegetarian diet.
The Gerson therapy approach generally consists of:
The final step of the Gerson therapy is detoxification of the body through the use of coffee enemas. Patients with cancer may be asked to take up to five coffee enemas per day. According to Charlotte Gerson, this procedure is designed to ease any stress on the liver than can occur as the body tries to purge all of the carcinogens and toxic substances that have entered the body.
Furthermore, these enemas have been proven to increase the body’s absorption of Vitamin A, which plays an essential role in the body’s immune function and allowing them to better attack and kill precancerous cells.
Survival rates for Gerson patients
Though the media has under reported the Gerson therapy in general, and many scientists have attempted to discredit the therapy’s value, there is no denying the scientific evidence. Studies have shown that not only does the Gerson diet therapy improve the quality of life for cancer patients when compared to traditional treatments, it offers them a higher rate of survival as well, and lowers the rate of recurrence in certain forms of the disease.
Gerson therapy has been shown to be effective for the treatment of lupus as well.
