Blood Work Update

Dr Cervantes at the Gerson Clinic in Mexico isn’t happy with Laura’s blood work. Her sodium and chloride levels have dropped too low, her LDH (the cancer marker) has leapt up to 390 and he is worried she isn’t eating all her meals, especially on castor oil days.  This is a big deal.  It’s really…

Blood Work Update

Today, Laura had her first phone check-up with Dr Cervantes at the Gerson Clinic in Mexico .  He reviewed her blood work and said her urine PH 8.5 is too alkaline (apparently this happens to most Gerson patients after 6 weeks), so he wants her to eat a little animal protein. Her ears perked up…

Blood Work Update

We just saw Dr Cervantes for Laura’s final blood work review at the Gerson Clinic.  Her LDH (lactic dehydrogenase), which had been coming down steadily (Dr Cervantes said this was a good sign), has just shot up higher than it was when she arrived.  It’s now 300.  Normal is below 176.  A couple of the…

How Not To Do An Enema

Hormone Replacement Therapy – a Cancer Trigger?

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…

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…

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…
