Finally, all of the Gerson Information in One Movie. Join Howard Straus (author, scientist, son of Charlotte Gerson and grandson of Dr. Max Gerson) for an in-depth examination of the Gerson Therapy — how it works, the science behind it and why it works. Heal Yourself Heal the World is a new review of the Gerson Therapy.
This retelling of the story includes historical information on Dr. Max Gerson never before presented on film; in-depth explanations from scientists, researchers, and nutritional experts on the science behind the Gerson Therapy; reports from doctors who use the Gerson Therapy to heal their patients; and personal stories form Gerson patients who healed themselves of cancer and other diseases using the Gerson Therapy.
The life story of Dr. Gerson, his development of the life saving Gerson Therapy and the information regarding why it works.
Gerson Therapy hospitals have a history going back in the 1920s when a young German doctor named Max Gerson developed the Gerson-Sauerbruch-Hermannsdorfer diet while looking for ways to treat his own intense migraine headaches. He later used this method to treat tuberculosis and eventually began getting success with cancer patients.
The Gerson Method, also known as “The Gerson Therapy”, is a natural treatment regimen that calls upon the body’s own powerful potential to heal itself. By adhering to a strict organic, plant-based diet, consuming large amounts of raw, cold-pressed juices, and performing daily coffee enemas, the protocol aims to activate your body’s ability to fight disease.
So what makes Gerson Therapy different?
While other nutritional regimens may appear as similar to the Gerson Therapy, what sets this method apart is that it aims to target all areas in the entire body, for healing. An increasing build-up of toxins, combined with increasingly poor nutrition, was what Dr. Gerson discovered to be the cause for many debilitating diseases. This is why the Gerson Method is so powerful. It doesn’t just aim to target specific symptoms or heal one specific disease or ailment, it aims to target the restoration of the body’s own powerful healing system, in which nothing can be removed, omitted or sick, without affecting the rest of the body too.
Unfortunately, the causes are everywhere around us, and increasingly so, with every passing day. Every day, we are living in and around toxins and carcinogens, while the foods we eat do not sustain healthy immune systems and bodily functions. The causes are in the (processed, lab designed) “foods” that we eat, in the air we breath, and in the water we drink, and use when we wash our dishes, clothes, and bodies. Then we consume immune degenerative toxins in the medicines that we take, the list is long..
Using the enhanced Gerson method is combatting such an overload of toxins, while flooding the body with nutrients from fresh, organic, juices. Because juices don’t contain fiber, they are easier on the digestive system and can go straight into the bloodstream. They provide the body with a mega-dose of vitamins, enzymes, nutrients and minerals. As the nutrients from the juice regenerate the damaged body tissue, the coffee enemas stimulate liver detoxification.
