Detox and juicing to fight cancer - really?
Yes, The Gerson Institute
is one of numerous holistic organizations that use freshly juiced organic vegetable juice as one of their primary tools to fight cancer. When you go to their facility, one reason their juice is so powerful is that it is organic, and loaded with important trace minerals.
If you would like to hear their story, you may purchase the compelling and insightful DVD Healing Cancer from Inside Out.
Gerson's other main tool is the use of coffee enemas, which have proven to be a wonderful tool for detoxing the liver, and therefore the body.
Doesn't it make sense? Get rid of the toxins that caused the cancer in the first place, then give the body the intense nutrition it needs to fight back, and to build healthy cells.
Many of Gerson's patients first underwent chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to try and fight their cancer. Once these had failed, they came to the Gerson Clinic in Mexico as a last resort.
Many times, patients at the Gerson Clinic undergo as little as 4 to 8 weeks of fighting cancer with juicing and detox before winning their battle against cancer. But how long does this success last?
Gerson's “still alive after 10 years” rate is totally amazing, so much better than the heart-breakingly low 10 year survival rate found with those who use the conventional approach of chemo, radiation and surgery.
The Gerson Institute has prepared a one hour 30 minute video entitled "The Gerson Miracle", documenting this success story. If you haven't seen it before, this may open your eyes! View "The Gerson Miracle" for free!
Now here's some GOOD NEWS! If a person isn't able to go to the Gerson treatment facility just across the Mexican border from the USA for detox and cancer juicing, they can choose to buy the book Healing the Gerson Way for $29.95, and follow the same guidelines used at Gerson's treatment facilities.
The Gerson Institute has not been approved by the FDA to use coffee enemas and juicing for cancer treatment. The FDA has made a ruling that only drugs can cure diseases, and the Gerson Clinics don't use drugs in their treatment.
So if you are interested in their treatment, it's either go to their Mexico or Hungary clinic, or get the book and do your best to follow it.
If you do decide to get their book and do it yourself, remember that organic vegetables grown with sea minerals have much greater promise in juicing to fight cancer than vegetables grown without sea minerals.
Juicing vegetables produced by healthy-vegetable-gardening, your garden, can be grown very nutrient dense, which can only help you in juicing to fight cancer.
Closely akin to the Gerson approach, the Ketogenic diet, which calls for minimizing carbohydrates and replacing them with healthy fats and moderate amounts of high quality protein, may offer hope against cancer, both for prevention and treatment.
Dr. Thomas Seyfried is one of the leading pioneer academic researchers in promoting how to treat cancer nutritionally. He’s been teaching neurogenetics and neurochemistry as it relates to cancer treatment at Yale University and Boston College for the past 25 years.
He’s written over 150 peer-reviewed scientific articles and book chapters, and has also published a book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer.
Dr. Seyfried teaches how the ketogenic diet manages cancer. He says that it is well-established that it’s the glucose reduction that kills the cancer cells.
Your normal cells have the metabolic flexibility to adapt from using glucose to using ketone bodies. Cancer cells lack this ability so when you reduce carbs to only non-starchy vegetables, you effectively starve the cancer
And here's good news! You can grow your own nutrient dense vegetables for the ketogenic diet, fertilize them with ocean trace minerals, and give your body the special nutrients it needs to beat cancer!
