The New York Marathon streamed past our building last weekend, 100 yards from our front door, up 1st Avenue. Healing the Gerson way is a marathon too. It takes 2 years non-stop on the Gerson diet to heal. Laura’s already one eighth of the way along the course and she is being egged on by a dedicated group of friends and loved ones who drop by to help with the juicing. Last weekend it was Darryl, Phil, Steve and Marian. We wondered if Marian would make it. In order to get here and circumvent the marathoners (who cut off all traffic to our part of Manhattan on Sunday afternoon), Marian travelled from Inwood to 57th st and then looped back up to 92nd st, a journey of some 10 miles via taxi and subway and she arrived only a few minutes late and in good spirits – amazing!
