Last week I received 4 emails about people dying from cancer and 2 emails from people wanting to do natural treatment for their cancer. Let me say that if you have cancer or any serious disease, my heart breaks for you. I wept after reading each email. I wished I was close by to these people to embrace them. I don’t hate many things but Cancer is one of those things I HATE.
If only the medical community and their patients were more open to alternative treatments for cancer & disease, there would be fewer people dying after extensive chemo treatments, fewer recurrences of full-blown cancer and more happy families. Alternative treatments are not a cure for all but do help with hundreds of diseases and health conditions around the world.
Just today I received a question about the Gerson Therapy. The person wanted to know if they could incorporate raw fruit and vegetable juices during chemo. To save my long drawn out explanation I placed a write-up below from the Gerson Institute. For some must-see videos on cancer, curing diseases and the Gerson therapy visit:
Gerson Therapy While on Chemotherapy
Q: Can a patient begin the Gerson Therapy while undergoing chemotherapy?
No. In most cases, chemotherapy works in direct conflict with a detoxifying therapy such as the Gerson Therapy.
When a patient receives chemotherapy, a significant percentage of each dose remains lodged in the body. When the Gerson Therapy begins to work, it can very quickly dislodge toxins from the cells into the bloodstream, including the chemotherapy residue. Patients with such a large amount of toxins being released into their bloodstream often cannot detoxify the body fast enough if they are using the standard intensive Gerson Therapy and may be prone to liver failure. At the very least they can become very sick.
When a patient comes to a Gerson treatment center, the doctors must implement the Therapy with them more gradually by reducing the amount of juice consumed and the frequency of enemas. This process often needs to be fine‐tuned for each patient, and it may be reckless and dangerous for the patient to attempt to modify the program on their own. This is why we strongly encourage chemo‐treated patients to come to a Gerson facility to begin the Therapy, and not to begin the Therapy at home.
Q: If I’m already on chemo, is there anything else I can do in the meantime to get started on the Gerson Therapy?
Yes. A chemo patient would certainly benefit from following the Gerson diet and eating an organic, vegetarian diet. A chemo patient can also take juices—though not the full 13 glasses per day. However, a chemo patient cannot take the coffee enemas or castor oil treatments so they cannot begin the full Therapy. Giving castor oil or coffee enemas can result in the release and overload of chemotherapy drugs into the circulatory system in a completely unregulated manner. This can have very serious, deleterious results and even death with highly toxic patients.
Q: How long do I have to wait to begin the Gerson Therapy after finishing chemo?
2‐3 weeks. You must take a blood test before beginning the Gerson Therapy.
Q: After chemo, what protocol should I follow?
A. In Healing the Gerson Way book, there is a specific protocol for chemo pre‐treated patients detailed in Chapter 18, on pages 199‐203.
