The Gerson diet is plant-based and entirely organic. The diet is naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micro-nutrients, and extremely low in sodium, fats, and proteins. The following is a typical daily diet for a Gerson patient on the full therapy regimen:

  • Thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot/apple and green-leaf juices prepared hourly from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Three full plant-based meals, freshly prepared from organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal will include salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, Hippocrates soup and juice.
  • Fresh fruit and fresh fruit available at all hours for snacking, in addition to the regular diet.



MSM, DMSO Effects on Breast and Colon Cancer

There are currently more than 300 alternative cancer treatments available, many of which are more effective against cancer than traditional chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

People wonder why after the billions of dollars used to fund the “War on Cancer,” that President Nixon started in 1971/72, has not yet produced a cure for cancer. Have researchers been looking for more profitable treatments for cancer or have they actually been looking for a real cure for cancer?

Research suggests that MSM has shown great promise as an alternative treatment to chemotherapy and radiation treatment for fighting cancer.

It is a well known fact that research costs huge amounts of money and the only real money available for extensive research and clinical studies comes from these major pharmaceutical companies.

Until recently there has been very little research and clinical trials done on the effects of MSM on humans. This is due to the fact that the major pharmaceutical companies are not willing to provide funding for research that would prove there is a natural nutritional sulfur substance that can be used to not only effectively treat cancer, but has also been shown to be effective at preventing cancer.

MSM has had more than 30 years of research done on it…

     Extensive cancer research done at Oregon Health Sciences University  by the Doctors Stanley Jacobs and Robert Herschler, on laboratory rats for both colon and breast cancers, has shown that MSM significantly slows the developement of both mammory and colon tumors when the animals were given chemical substances that are known to cause cancer.

MSM did not prevent the cancer but did delay the onset of the tumors substantially…

    In the breast cancer studies, MSM delayed the onset of the tumors by 100 days. When you translate the life span of rat years to human years, this shows a delay that is the equivalent to 10  human years. Much more research is needed to determine whether MSM can slow the progress of cancer in humans.

DMSO has the ability to change a cancer cell…

    This process is called ” maturation “, which means that if you expose a cell to DMSO you can alter it in some way. This makes it possible to use DMSO to reduce the dosage of a chemo therapeutic agent. Several clinics in Europe and South America use DMSO for this purpose, but this research has not yet been done on MSM.
