Remember, every drug on earth is liver toxic!
By Liberty Balance
Recently my wife was given a month to live. A month to live after 3 surgeries, 2 rounds of chemo in 3 years. Now her only choice was a field trail study at a leading cancer research university. Sound familiar?
Unwilling to give up my wife that easily and with nothing left to lose. Both Cindy and I agreed that she would try the Gerson Protocol.
Considering the conditioning we endured since birth, we couldn't understand how our diet could possibly help Cindy's body heal itself from the cancer.
Cindy had stage 3 ovarian cancer. Upon her first surgery, her doctor came out of the operating room all smiles, he said it was the perfect surgery, everything was removed textbook style. He was very positive that Cindy would make a full recovery after chemo.
18 months later: Cindy is very sick, she is rushed into surgery. The doctor comes out and informs me that there is nothing they can do, the cancer looks like specs of sand throughout her intestine. They can't be removed, but 1 more round of chemo may give her 3 months to 3 years.
So Cindy endures her second round of chemo treatments, after her 5th treatment out of 6 scheduled, Cindy says enough is enough, I'd rather be with the lord. I was devastated to say the least. The person on this earth I loved the most was saying goodbye.
I was desperate, willing to explore any ideas I could find that may help my wife. As I explored her options, I came across a clinical study, a new drug not yet approved by the FDA. After further research and a sit down discussion with Cindy's doctor, we decided that a clinical trial would be our best hope. Then we put our faith in God's hands.
Within 2 days Cindy was in the emergency room, she had a perceived intestinal blockage. Cat scans were done, and other tests, only to come up inconclusive. What a let down. The doctor said Cindy's CA125 count was increasing so fast, she may not make it to her clinical trial on July 8th. She told me to pray and pray I did, as well as our little country church, Pleasant Valley Church, well known for the healing that takes place within.
In April 2014, Cindy's CA125 was 30, at the top of the normal range. Then in may her CA125 jumped to 70, then in June Cindy's CA125 jumped to 108, at that point I begged God for his mercy. Determined to fine something that could give her a chance at a longer life. More desperate than ever, I got back on my computer, that's when I discovered the Gerson Protocol. For 2 weeks prior to Cindy's next CA125 test, she diligently practiced the Gerson Protocol.
We went to have her next blood test taken, hoping for the best, but prepared for the worst. When we received the CA125 test back, we were baffled, it came in at 116. It seemed the Gerson Protocol had stabilized the cancer growth.
Today, the day before Cindy's 56th birthday, she says she can feel the cancer growth in her side with her hand and it is much smaller than a month ago.
We have to wait one more month for Cindy's next CA125 test, September we will be able to qualify for the next blood test. I will keep you all posted.
Through this experience we have learned that the lord works in his own way, he has blessed Cindy and I with a perspective that we have to share with everyone we possibly can. Everything happens for a reason. May our experience help others, that is why I am sharing this today.
The acclaimed Charlotte Gerson (daughter of Dr. Max Gerson) delivers a 3 hour long talk on the Gerson Therapy.
The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging side effects. This a powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases.
Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes and, most famously, cancer.
The Gerson Therapy‘s all-encompassing nature sets it apart from most other treatment methods. The Gerson Therapy effectively treats a wide range of different ailments because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the Gerson Therapy treats the causes of most degenerative diseases: toxicity and nutritional deficiency.
An abundance of nutrients from copious amounts of fresh, organic juices are consumed every day, providing your body with a super-dose of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. These substances then break down diseased tissue in the body, while coffee enemas aid in eliminating toxins from the liver.
Throughout our lives our bodies are being filled with a variety of carcinogens and toxic pollutants. These toxins reach us through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the medicines we take and the water we drink. The Gerson Therapy’s intensive detoxification regimen eliminates these toxins from the body, so that true healing can begin.
How the Gerson Therapy WorksThe Gerson Therapy regenerates the body to health, supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from about 15- 20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. Most is used to make fresh raw juice, up to one glass every hour, up to 13 times per day.
Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as oxygen deficiency in the blood contributes to many degenerative diseases.
The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins.
Degenerative diseases render the body increasingly unable to excrete waste materials adequately, commonly resulting in liver and kidney failure.
The Gerson Therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body’s essential defenses – enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, high-quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells – and the body – can regenerate, become healthy and prevent future illness.
Fresh pressed juice from raw foods provides the easiest and most effective way of providing high quality nutrition. By juicing, patients can take in the nutrients and enzymes from nearly 15 pounds of produce every day, in a manner that is easy to digest and absorb.
Every day, a typical patient on the Gerson Therapy for cancer consumes up to thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot/apple and green-leaf juices. These juices are prepared hourly from fresh, raw, organic fruits and vegetables, using a two-step juicer or a masticating juicer used with a separate hydraulic press.
The Gerson DietThe Gerson diet is plant-based and entirely organic. The diet is naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micro-nutrients, and extremely low in sodium, fats, and proteins. The following is a typical daily diet for a Gerson patient on the full therapy regimen:
- Thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot/apple and green-leaf juices prepared hourly from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
- Three full plant-based meals, freshly prepared from organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal will include salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, Hippocrates soup and juice.
- Fresh fruit and fresh fruit available at all hours for snacking, in addition to the regular diet.
SupplementsAll medications used in connection with the Gerson Therapy are classed as biologicals, materials of organic origin that are supplied in therapeutic amounts.
- Potassium compound
- Lugol’s solution
- Vitamin B-12
- Thyroid hormone
- Pancreatic Enzymes
DetoxificationCoffee enemas are the primary method of detoxification of the tissues and blood on the Gerson Therapy. Cancer patients on the Gerson Therapy may take up to 5 coffee enemas per day. Charlotte Gerson explains the necessity of coffee enemas in Healing the Gerson Way:
“The moment a patient is put on the full therapy, the combined effect of the food, the juices and the medication causes the immune system to attack and kill tumor tissue, besides working to flush out accumulated toxins from the body tissues.
This great clearing-out procedure carries the risk of overburdening and poisoning the liver—the all-important organ of detoxification, which, in a cancer patient, is bound to be already damaged and debilitated.”Coffee enemas accomplish this essential task, assisting the liver in eliminating toxic residues from the body for good. The Gerson Therapy also utilizes castor oil to stimulate bile flow and enhance the liver’s ability to filter blood.
Is the Gerson Therapy Right For You?No treatment works for everyone, every time. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not giving you the facts. We know that when you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening ailment, choosing the best strategy for fighting your illness can be a bewildering task.
Everyone claims to have either “the best treatment”, “the fastest cure”, or “the only therapy that works.” In most cases your trusted family physician only has knowledge of conventional treatments, and is either unaware of, or even hostile toward alternative options.
No matter how many opinions you receive on how to treat your disease, you are going to make the final decision on what to do, and you must be comfortable with your decision. Choose a treatment that makes the most sense to you.
Most therapies–conventional or alternative–treat only the individual symptoms while ignoring what is ultimately causing the disease. The reason the Gerson Therapy is effective with so many different ailments is because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself.
Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the Gerson Therapy treats the cause of the disease itself. Although we feel the Gerson Therapy is the most comprehensive treatment for disease, we don’t claim it will cure everything or everyone.
Caution: Do not start the Gerson Therapy if any of the following conditions apply without referring to Charlotte Gerson’s book, Healing the Gerson Way, or without the supervision of a Gerson doctor:
- Brain metastases
- Severe kidney damage and/or if the patient has ever been on dialysis
- Foreign bodies such as pacemakers, breast implants, steel plates or screws.

Foods For The Gerson Diet
“Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food”
The two most important aspects of the Gerson approach to
healing are freshness and purity. All of the foods
ingested on the Gerson Therapy must be fresh, organically or bi
ologically grown, and consumed in their most natural form.
We strongly recommend that the patient does not add to or change the dietary guidelines without the advice of a certified Gerson Therapy practitioner.
While many patients have used appropriate, compatible additions or
adjuncts to the diet that have helped their healing process, there are many others who have failed to heal because they made too many “minor modifications” to the Gerson Therapy protocol.
The Gerson Therapy has
been shown to be successful in achieving remission and cure in many different diseases
when used as directed modifications may or may not affect the outcome of your particular condition, but significant alteration without
medical advice from someone knowledgeable about the bio
chemical basis of the Gerson approach may reduce
one’s chances for recovery.
* Patients with collagen related illnesses must avoid citrus juices and fruits. For all others, citrus juice is optional. Only one citrus juice a day is allowed and may be replaced for a carrot and apple juice.

My hope is that other people can avoid the pain and heartbreak Cindy and I have endured. We have been indoctrinated to believing that only drugs and drug companies can help our condition. This is false, our bodies have the power to heal themselves if given the proper nutrients and diet. No drugs needed for most of our symptoms.
God bless, and please share your experiences with us in the comment section below.
