Gerson Therapy is a nutritional program that utilizes the body's own mechanism in the treatment of chronic debilitating illness. It was introduced 50 years ago by Max Gerson, M.D.

The Gerson therapy is a detoxification and rebuilding program. It consists of flooding the body every day with nutrients from about 20 pounds of organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables. A total of 13 glasses of juices are consumed daily, in addition to 3 regular meals. Metabolism is stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements. Animal fats, excess protein and sodium are avoided. Coffee enemas are used to intensify liver detoxification.
As a result of detoxification and increased oxygenation, cellular regeneration of all organs occurs, in particular that of the liver, and the immune system is restored to its optimal function.

The original Gerson Institute, dedicated to education of the public and training of professionals, is located in San Diego, California. Their affiliated clinic, located in Tijuana, Mexico, treats a variety of chronic illnesses; in particular, all forms of cancer. Find a selection of the Gerson Institute case studies here.

Dr. Maya Nicole Baylac got her Gerson training from Charlotte Gerson. Today Hawaii Gerson Therapy Program is independent of the Gerson Institute in Mexico, and is instead connected to the Mind Your Body health retreat on Hawaii.

The therapy is well-known for its excellent results when it comes to recovery from cancer, and for being the foremost alternative to chemotherapy, surgery and radiation.

  • Educate the public about the dangers of unhealthy lifestyles to themselves and their environment
  • Teach self-awareness to change self-destructive patterns of behavior, unconscious belief systems and unhealthy habits
  • Teach positive thinking, trust, self-love, and honesty to open the heart

2. Clinical Therapeutics

The clinical approach consists of detoxifying and nourishing the body, the mind and the heart. The most elegant approach is based on fasting and nutritional therapy. Fasting on water or juices or a raw food diet is the most radical and the most efficient way to treat and prevent most illness. The nutritional therapy is a stepping stone to address mental, emotional and spiritual issues that may create imbalance. To achieve this goal the following methods are used: meditation, awareness techniques, breath work, laughter therapy, guided imagery, movement and sound therapy. Adjuvant therapies such as hydrotherapy, botanical medicine and homeopathy may be used in conjunction with the nutritional therapy or afterwards.

The 6 Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

The practice of naturopathic medicine is founded on six principles, formulated from the observation of health and disease, and examined in light of scientific analysis. These principles distinguish naturopathic medicine from other medical approaches.

  1. The healing power of nature.
    The body has the inherent ability to establish, maintain and restore health. The physician's role is to facilitate and augment this process, to act to identify and remove obstacles to health and recovery.

  2. Identify and treat the cause.
    Underlying causes of disease must be treated before a person can recover. Symptoms are expressions of the body's attempt to heal, and should not be suppressed by treatment. The physician must evaluate underlying causes on all levels, treating causes rather than symptoms.

  3. Treat the whole person.
    Health and disease are conditions of the entire organism, involving a complex interaction of physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, and social factors. The physician must treat the whole person by taking all of these factors into account.

  4. First do no harm.
    Illness is a purposeful process of the organism. Symptoms are an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. The physician's treatment must support the healing power of nature and therapy must be congruent with the internal order of the organism.

  5. Physician as teacher.
    A cooperative doctor-patient relationship is, in itself, therapeutic. The physician's major role is to educate and encourage the patient to take responsibility for health, and to be a catalyst for healthful change. It is the patient, not the doctor, who ultimately creates or accomplishes healing.

  6. Prevention.
    The ultimate goal of naturopathic medicine is prevention, accomplished through education and promotion of life-habits that create good health. The emphasis is on building health rather than on fighting disease.

"Toxicity and deficiency are the causes of so-called "incurable" degenerative diseases. When the body is cleared from toxic materials and the mind from negative thoughts - individuals tend to spring back into health."
