About the Author
Charlotte Gerson, the daughter of Max Gerson, founded the Gerson Institute in 1977. Under her father’s tutelage, Charlotte learned about the remarkable nutritional therapy that has saved the health of thousands, including Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Albert Schweitzer, a lifelong advocate of the Gerson Therapy®. Charlotte has supervised the training of medical staff at the Gerson Institute and at hospitals licensed to teach the Gerson Institute method. She has lectured on the benefits of nutritional therapy at several hundred health organizations worldwide, including the Cancer Control Society, the National Health Federation, and the International Association of Cancer Victors and Friends. A staunch practitioner of holistic medicine, Charlotte Gerson has devoted her life to the Gerson Therapy’s message of health and healing.

The diet is covered in detail, explaining why certain foods are forbidden, and others are encouraged. The juicing, which is the cornerstone of the therapy, is thoroughly explained. Use of coffee enemas is covered, and the supplement regime is given. However, not every person would need to take every supplement (depending on their disease), and amounts of each supplement could vary from person to person. As well, some of the supplementation is not available from your local health food store. Therefore, it may be necessary to contact the Gerson Therapy Institute in order to follow the Therapy in its entirety.
The Gerson Therapy is difficult to follow, and the juicing tends to take up most of your waking hours. BUT we have already had success with using the therapy, even in the 5 weeks we have been following it. I highly recommend this book if you are serious about reversing a degenerative disease that you have been diagnosed with.
This is the book that I would first recommend for anyone wanting to understand the use of alternative medicine for the healing of any chronic condition including cancer I would also highly recommend this book to anyone contemplating the use of conventional medicine as well because of the excellent material on the disease process and the potential for using this or some other alternative therapy in a complimentary or combination process of natural and conventional healing. The issue in addressing healing of chronic diseases is for the person with the disease and their family to be sufficiently unformed of the causes and all possible treatment possibilities so that they can make informed and responsible decisions about their total treatment. Other therapies and approaches could be evaluated as to how well they addressed all of the healing concepts detailed in this book.
"The Gerson Therapy" is a welcome and highly recommended addition to the multitude of books that address healing of chronic conditions including cancer by using natural or alternative means. The specific approach is healing by a combination of high quality nutrition and total body detoxification. The Therapy is a total program and does require significant life style changes at least for the detailed therapy. Actually, lifetime lifestyle changes will be required to remain healthy, but these are easily done once one has gone through the detailed therapy.

I have a friend who was diagnosed with terminal cancer (of the esophagus that had metasticized in his liver) just over a year ago. He was supposed to be dead by now. His aunt researched alternative treatments for cancer and discovered the Gerson Therapy. My friend has been on the therapy for just under a year and is back at work feeling great. His cancer has not progressed and the main tumors in his liver have shrunk. As a result, I became interested in learning more about the Gerson therapy. I bought and read both the Gerson Therapy by Charlotte Gerson and A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases and the Cure of Advanced Cancer. Both books are outstanding to reads. I appreciate the detailed explanation and understanding the science behind the treatment. It makes perfect sense to me to give your body what it needs to heal itself naturally. I highly recommend this to anyone who is dealing with cancer or other degnerative disease.
