Flax (linseed) Oil

The only oil you are allowed on the Gerson diet is 2 tablespoons of Flax oil a day, which may explain why we are both looking as leathery as a pair of old crocodiles.  The other reason our skin feels as tightly stretched as Imelda Marcos facelift is that we aren’t allowed any moisturizer or any cosmetics (no sunscreen, no body lotion, no face cream, no make up), nothing but the prescribed soap.

Those who’ve been at the clinic for a while, chug their flax oil like a shot to get it down quickly.  The stuff tastes like axel grease.   Laura tried this on day two and spewed it all back up next to the lunch table.  Since then she has been pouring it into her carrot juice and I’ve been trying to conceal it in my baked potato.
