I was a research associate with the Gerson-Research Organization for 6 years from 1990-1996. Based on what I know, I would do a modified version of the Gerson Therapy. The therapy as Dr. Gerson prescribed it included 13 fresh fruit/vegie juices per day (1 every hour) and 4 coffee enemas per day (1 every 4 hours) to help aid tumor breakdown and detoxification. It also included a fair amount of cooked food and some non-fat dairy products which I would eliminate from my own program. Instead I would eat an all-raw fruit-based diet with lots of pineapple (as recommended by Jan Dries, The Dries Cancer Diet). I would also add wheatgrass juice to my program, a la Ann Wigmore.
Yes, I would have surgery, as our research demonstrated a very clear survival advantage for patients who had the bulk of their tumor(s) removed prior to doing the diet therapy. However, I would not personally do radiation or chemotherapy under any circumstances. Patients with a history of convential therapies did not do as well as those who did not receive them prior to doing the diet therapy.
My Dad got diagnosed and I gave him the info. He wasnt open to it so I went over to see him anyways. I talked with the oncologist in front of Dad and Dad just couldnt hear what we were saying to each other. When we got out of the office, Dad said to me 'I couldnt belive you had your elbows on her desk! That is so uncouth..' I got the message that Dad wanted to do his thing and I had to accept that no matter how hard it was.
The hardest thing about being healthy and fit is watching our friends, family and society itself smash apart its health and fitness by following misinformation.
Doesnt stop me from being the best example I can be, rather it fuels it.
