I bought this book on the recommendation of Andrew W. Saul.

I'm glad I bought it and I feel I have come away from reading it with some useful information, although I have found out that I am too ill and do not have the financial resources to follow the program fully.

(Like many people with severe M.E. any type of overexertion makes the disease worse, and this would include drinking juices hourly and having to interact with the juice bringer hourly, plus the enormous input and overexertion etc. in

I can't attest to the efficacy of this program or the scientific claims made, but the underlying premise seemed very sound. However, following the program would necessitate being an independently wealthy recluse for two years…and I'm not exaggerating one iota. Until my insurance covers 2 in home nurses, 20 lbs of organic produce a day, and quitting my job for two years (minimum), this program is virtually useless to me, even if I could find the will to adhere to it.

Not for the faint of heart but if curious about the details of the Gerson Method, then all questions will be answered! I recommend watching The Beautiful Truth and The Gerson Way docus before reading the book. Both docus introduce Dr Gerson and the book is in-depth.

This was a very easy and informative book to read. I've always been afraid of getting cancer and while the therapy doesn't sound fun or easy I know that if I am ever diagnosed with cancer it will be the route of healing I choose. I hope to incorporate some of the things I learned to help myself heal from my migraines as the therapy was originally developed to help Dr. Gerson with his own migraines. There's no way I can do the full therapy but I'm hoping that by doing some of the things I'll do b ...more

I am pretty biased here. When I checked this out from the library I forgot why I had done so.
I imagined that I read enough positive reviews that I figured it was worth a shot. However, I also remembered reading that Gerson (was it Charlotte or her father?) claimed that all diseases could be treated with Gerson therapy including cancer before succumbing to cancer.

That being said, I have health issues and I tried to put prejudices out of the way in case there was any wisdom here. I am not sure how

Whether you have cancer or not, you will learn how our modern society contributes to its increased occurrence, and how you can make changes in your life to prevent getting it.

It’s a fascinating alternative understanding to the traditional medical approach of chemotherapy as to how you can create an environment both internally and externally to heal your body of chronic illnesses. Modern medicine tries to fix the symptoms of disease, whereas the Gerson Therapy fixes what causes the disease in the

This book is an excellent pointer to direction of how we sould start thinking about food and the way we live. It is popular these days to talk about health and healthy food, but we have too much information about everything, and is very confusing. Results are bad. We have so much knowledge about everything,but number of people with difficult illnesses, weight problem, health problems that is considered normal today ( and it shouldn't) that is rapidly increasing.
Read the book if You can , it is v

This was a really good introduction to the gerson therapy but what is missing is a step by step "workbook" of some sort that helps people get started. after reading I still see no feasible way of working full time and doing the fulk therapy. there were no examples of people in the book who are less privileged with time and money who are making it happen which comes across fairly elite. Overall, it was a very easy read and generally informative.

I like this book too. This is a very intensive laid out way to treat chronic problems. It ties in with lots of the other books I'm reading, but this is the most regimented. (That might be what you want sometimes).

My mother and I both follow this and it has gotten rid of her arthritis and asthma. Just our personal experience, but I absolutely support this lifestyle. It's also highly enjoyable and I never feel deprived.

There is a lot of information in this book. Some good takeaways even if you don't have a terminal illness.

So informative! I'm still skeptical and will read other books related to this, but it was eye-opening and inspiring.

Instead of working to heal something happening currently, I'm working on prevention by a moderated use of the Gerson diet. Fantastic results so far.
