Tumor Necrosis

In The Gerson Therapy book (2001) one patient Kent Gardner describes his throat tumor when it starts to die off as ‘rotting in my throat..it produced a constant, horrible smell unlike anything I had ever experienced – even after working for 24 years as a taxidermist!’ Eventually it fell off and he swallowed it. Sounds disgusting…

My Dear Mum

It has been quite the year. First my very dear mum, who has enfolded me in love all her life, had a stroke in the fall of 2012, then my soul mate Laura was diagnosed with melanoma of the cervix in May 2013. And now this Thursday, September 5th, my mum is going to have…

Sniff Sniff..

When I first met Laura she had a terrible sense of smell.  It worried me a bit. Diminishing sense of smell can be an early indicator for Alzheimer’s.  But since Laura has been on the Gerson diet, her nose is now so sensitive it’s like a super power.  If I so much as pull a…

How Not To Do An Enema

One of the people here at the Gerson Clinic just set their bed on fire and it wasn’t by smoking or illicitly trying to grill a steak.  They were trying to help their partner do an enema.. For modesty’s sake we’ll refer to the patient as J.  She was lying on the enema couch in…

Hormone Replacement Therapy – a Cancer Trigger?

Three of the female patients at the Gerson Clinic (including Laura) have undergone hormone replacement therapy. Two took bio-identical compounded hormones and two used the Vivelle estradiol patch. Is there a link to cancer?  Dr Cervantes strongly thinks so. HRT may not be the only disease trigger, but it is likely one of the culprits…

Melatonin

Laura is so buzzed from all the caffeine in the coffee enemas, she is finding it hard to fall asleep. The prescribed valerian tablets had no effect. Now Laura is on 6mg of Melatonin at bedtime. It not only helps with sleep, melatonin is supposed to help fight cancer and boost your immune system too….

Health Update

Good news! Laura’s Lactic Dehydrogenase (LDH) level just dropped significantly for the second time.  It is now 206. Normal range is below 176. Cancer patients tend to have elevated levels.  When Laura arrived at the clinic, her LDH was up at 271. Dr Cervantes says this latest blood work shows her body is detoxifying very…

Dreaming of Meat…

Blue cheese burger with bacon, sauteed mushrooms and onions, the whole roast pig at the local taco stand, razor clams, scallops and lobster. Laura has been dreaming of meat the past few days.  For once, the only thing she is not craving is sugar. ‘I’ve no interest in it at all,’ she says.

Good News + Not Such Great News

‘Don’t worry.  It is a typical healing reaction, and a very good one,’ Dr Melendez told Laura this morning after breakfast.  Dr Melendez is co-owner of the clinic and one of the best known Gerson doctors. She has treated patients at the Gerson clinic for over 20 years.  She and Dr Cervantes have dropped Laura…

Castor Oil Enema

The castor oil enema is something every Gerson patient dreads.  It tastes vile and it is the mother of all detoxes.  It strips all 32 feet of your intestine removing parasites, worms, fat deposits, toxins, food residues, dead and malignant tissue and defunct blood cells, according to Dr Ramos. You have to drink a couple…

Charlotte Gerson

Laura, Charlotte Gerson & Lucie Charlotte Gerson came to the clinic yesterday. What an extraordinary woman.  She is 91 years old and full of energy and strong opinions. She calls the American FDA (Food and Drug Administration) the ‘Fraud and Death Association’, is vehemently against fluoride in drinking water.  ‘It is poison.  It says so…

The Gerson Clinic vs ‘Healing the Gerson Way’ (the book)

Almost everyone at the Gerson clinic seems to start slowly rather than launch into 13 juices and 5 enemas a day as prescribed in ‘Healing the Gerson Way’, Charlotte Gerson’s helpful book.   ‘When people do the full protocol too soon, they can get into big problems and end up with an ulcer or in…

Mucosal Melanoma – the cause?

Laura has a very rare mucosal melanoma of the cervix. The Gerson Clinic has only seen one other case in all its years.  But according to a top doctor we saw at Memorial Sloan Kettering these mucosal melanomas are becoming more common. What is the cause? Dr Cervantes at the Gerson Clinic thinks it is…

Juicing Challenge – 45 mins

Floods of green juice gushed  from every side of the Norwalk juicer this morning. Accidentally over-filled the pressing bags. One good thing about the Norwalk, it makes LOTS of juice from very few veggies. Two carrots and 1 green apple is all you need for a very large glass of juice. My  beloved old Omega…

Coffee enema

The coffee enema is another Gerson Therapy staple.  Five a day for cancer patients. Each time you have to suck up 1 quart of organic coffee (no Folgers!) up your butt and hold it for 15 minutes. The coffee cleanses the liver and out whooshes all the toxins, parasites and other junk that has been…
