Inspired

Wow! I was bowled over this morning when I switched on my laptop to find the blog got almost 5,000 hits in one day and so many kind messages of love and support from meditators on the Deepak Chopra site. It lifts my wings and makes me feel less alone. It was exactly a year…

Gerson Revisited – part three

How many enemas & juices are enough? ‘In the beginning the most important part of the therapy is an intensive detoxification of the entire body,’ wrote Dr Max Gerson in A Cancer Therapy (p193). To achieve this, Dr Gerson immediately started his cancer patients on the full protocol of 13 juices and 5 enemas each day….

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…

You have to drink a couple…

Upside down coffee

Laura is really enjoying her bathroom time with her coffee enemas (‘upside down coffee’ in Gerson-ese).  She reads, chats on the phone and relaxes. Doing five enemas a day takes about 5 hours. Many Gerson patients take up hobbies while doing them – knitting, meditating.. and one patient read her way through math, philosophy, all…

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…
