Gerson therapy

Postby Yegana » Thu Feb 15, 2018 1:13 pm

I wish all cancer patients to stay positive and get well very soon. I do research for colon cancer treatment for my relative who was diagnosed with 4 stage colon cancer with mets on liver and ovary. She is 42 y healthy and doesn't have any cancer patient in family. I found an information about the Gerson therapy. Just wonder if someone tried this therapy and is it effective for stage 4.
Thank you in advance.

There are no scientific studies that support its efficacy. Wish there was a secret cure for cancer :-(

lkub thank you for sharing this information.
I still believe that alternative therapy like juicing, herbal drinks, diet include nuts ,kernels, vegetable and fruits , acupuncture and sport help with cancer treatment.
I personally know people who cured their chronic cough with carob molasses after all kind of cough syrups and antibiotics prescribed by doctors failed.
Hope one day we find some easy cure for cancer too.
