This comprehensive work brings the philosophy of the treatment according to Dr. Gerson into modern day practice providing an in-depth guide for health professionals on the treatment and management of patients who wish to embark upon on a nutritional therapy.
Dr. Gerson observed that cancer and degenerative conditions were due to progressive deterioration of the whole metabolism caused by the accumulation of numerous damaging factors, among them being chronic poisoning of the vital organs and the loss of living nutrients and oxidizing enzymes. Dr. Gerson found that deficiencies could not be restored so long as the essential organs remained poisoned, and between 1928 and 1959 went on to perfect an intensive diet therapy which involved both the detoxification of the whole body along with its nutritional restoration.
The success of Dr. Gerson has been unparalleled in the treatment of both cancer and degenerative disease. Even in far advanced cases of cancer he achieved a 50% cure rate. Today we are more poisoned and more nutritionally deficient, but still the Gerson protocol is helping thousands to recover from chronic illness and cancer.
The correct application of a nutritional therapy is critical to patient management and outcome. The text of this manual will provide:
A full scientific background to the Gerson treatment with reference to new advancements in technology that confirm and validate its principles

A scientific overview of the medications and diet along with specific indications for different groups

“The present volume shows a deep understanding of the Gerson Therapy approach and philosophy and will represent the ‘bible’ of the nutritional healer of the future.” Charlotte Gerson
