Gerson therapy is a whole-body treatment that activates the body’s natural ability to heal itself through an organic plant-based diet with raw juices, supplements and enemas. Developed by Dr Max Gerson in the 1930s, who used it as a treatment for his own migraines, it has been promoted as a way to treat degenerative diseases like skin tuberculosis, diabetes and even cancer.
The Gerson Therapy tackles the root cause of degenerative disease - toxicity and nutritional deficiency - and aims to replenish with fresh organic juices, enzymes, minerals and nutrients and detoxification with enemas. Gerson therapy requires the commitment and discipline to stick to the programme and diet to fully detox and heal the body over time.
A typical treatment day of Gerson Therapy includes:
13 glasses of fresh organic fruit and vegetable juices
Supplements like potassium and lugol’s solution
Up to 5 coffee enemas a day to eliminate accumulated toxins
