The Gerson Institute's work is based on the discovery by Max Gerson that fresh vegetable and fruit juicing along with coffee enemas, when judiciously applied, can cure many cases of cancer. The FDA has rallied against this institution and threatened them with shut down if they even mention cancer in their US facilitities. Meanwhile the Gerson Institute enjoys welcome in other European nations. It is a long story about how Gerson developed his protocols and how he brought them to the USA, much longer that this platform can do justice to so I recommend the following two full length movies for your discovery of The Gerson history and protocol.
The Gerson therapy is basically a three pronged protocol that encompasses utilizing 13 glasses of fresh juice a day, daily coffee enemas and the use of potassium, iodine and thyroid hormones if needed. Other supplements may include flax seed oil, enzymes, castor oil, laetrile, crude liver, co enzyme Q10, niacin, and vitamin B12 injections.
Below are two excellent documentaries regarding Max Gerson's work. The journalist Steve Krochel does an exceptional work in bringing to people in the USA the truth about the Gerson therapy. Well worth your time to watch. His journey eventually takes him to Japan where real research in going on in Japanese hospitals regarding the Gerson therapy... the verdict? Gerson Therapy cures cancer and the doctors know and accept it!
For any Brits out there, you can get all 4 of the Gerson DVDs (Healing At Home, Dying To Have Known, The Beautiful Truth and The Gerson Miracle) from the Gerson Support Group in Esher, Surrey.
Watch "Dying to Have Known" on Netflix or here for free on youtube
Here is another movie by the same author.. similar info. I think the link for "Dying to Have Known" found above provides more important information but still this is a good movie and may be more appropriate for teenagers.
Watch "The Beautiful Truth" here
