The Definitive Guide to Cannabis Oil Treatment for Cancer (Infographic)

The Cannabis Oil Treatment for cancer is one of the most effective Alternative Treatments there are. However, it is very hard for people to access it freely and get accurate information due to marijuana’s condition as an illegal drug in many countries and states of the U.S.

Furthermore, it is necessary to research in depth this impressive plant, but the illegal condition of it makes it very difficult for the scientific community to do so.

How Cannabinoids works.

Marihuana is a very powerful plant which contains cannabinoids. Humans have cannabinoid receptors all over our bodies, which form a system by themselves. When this system is not in balance, the results are illness and physical complications.

The Cannabinoids found in Marijuana, mimic the body’s natural endocannabinoids, providing relief to those symptoms.

The two main cannabinoids in Marijuana are CBD and THC

 

Medical Benefits of CBD and THC

THC – Tetrahydrocannabinol

THC is the principal ingredient in cannabis, and the responsible for the psychoactive properties of the plant. It’s basically with what you get “high” with. Besides that, studies suggest that THC is effective for:

  • Cancer treatment and as aid for reducing the symptoms coming from conventional treatments
  • PTSD
  • Stimulates appetite for HIV/AIDS patients
  • Help reducing ill people’s pain
  • Inflammation and insomnia
  • Reduces spasms and spasticity in patients with Multiple Sclerosis

CBD – Cannabidiol

This is the second cannabinoid with more scientific research. Besides helping in balancing the “high” coming from the THC, it’s also famous to help with:

  • Epilepsy.
  • Genetics brain disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn’s disease.
  • Relief from anxiety, inflammation, psychosis, spasms, seizures and other conditions without the feeling of dysphoria or lethargy.

As Aquarius Cannabis explains “CBD vs. THC levels in marijuana influence the way the bud makes you feel.

First of all, strains that have high levels of THC and low levels of CBD will give you a strong “high” and minimal pain relief or anti-inflammatory properties.

There are also with high levels of both THC and CBD are best suited for serious medical conditions as these strains can provide both psychoactive highs to ease the mind and anxiety, as well as severe pain relief and anti-inflammation.

Finally, there are strains that are low in THC and high in CBD have minimal “high” effects; in fact you would probably barely feel as if you had consumed cannabis. The CBD, however, would be a great pain reliever, cramp-reducer, and anti-inflammatory.

Some people even report they feel more focused, less stressed, and experience less ‘mental chatter’ when consuming CBD-rich cannabis, so they hit a high CBD strain like AC/DC or Cannatonic before writing, reading, or tackling the long overdue email inbox.”

 

Cannabis can kill cancer cells

There are four ways cannabis (and most efficiently cannabis oil treatment) works killing cancer cells

[nbsp]

Anti-proliferative:

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the Complutense University in Madrid, proved that THC, inhibit the growth of new human breast cancer cells.

In addition, other studies show (here and here), that CBD is a potent inhibitor of both cancer growth and spread of various types of cancer including: Breast, skin, pancreatic, bone, lung, colon, glioma, endocrine tumors and leukaemia/lymphoma and others.

[nbsp]

Anti-Metastatic:

Metastatic cancer (cancer that have spread from one place in the body to another), are among the most difficult to treat. Research suggests that cannabis prevents the cancer cells from spreading and adhering to other healthy cells.

[nbsp]

Anti-Angiogenic:

There are several studies that show (like these – 12) that in addition to the above-described anti cancer effects, cannabis oil treatment has been shown to normalize tumor vasculature. As a result, the tumor is not able to continue creating new blood vessels to steal oxygen and nutrients from other healthy cells of the body. Therefore, this cut the tumor’s food supply and encourages death by starvation.

[nbsp]

Pro-apoptotic:

In a healthy person, cells that are damaged or aged can undergo a process of programmed cell death (apoptosis). But, for some reason yet unknown to science*, cancer cells don’t respond to signals that would otherwise cause them to self-destruct. Nevertheless scientists found that cannabinoids are very effective in inducing cancer cells apoptosis in both in vitro and in vivo tests.

* Researchers at the University of Western Ontario have identified the protein (RanBPM) that regulates apoptosis, which is a huge first step to understand the process.

 

Types of Cancer that Cannabis Oil can treatThis is not the complete list, but the most common types of cancer that have being cured with cannabis oil treatment.

Cancer Symptoms Cannabis Oil can treatThe use of Cannabis Oil Therapy goes beyond treating cancer. It is also extremely effective in alleviating cancer-related symptoms. Hence, the why so many cancer patients, especially those undergoing chemo, turn into medical cannabis (either as oil, edibles, raw or smoked/vaporized) to relieve themselves from them.

2 of the most critical symptoms cannabis can alleviate in a cancer patient are pain and nausea.

[nbsp]

Pain

If you ask anyone who has ever smoked cannabis and had pain, any kind of pain, cancer related or non-related, this is definitely one of the things they would tell you: “It’s gone” or “It went down very much”.

Marijuana is very well known for its pain killer properties. But, is there any scientific research that supports what people in the streets are saying?

A selective review of medical cannabis in cancer pain management was published in Aug, 2017 by the University of Toronto, where they presented “a selection of representative clinical studies, from small pilot studies conducted in 1975, to double-blind placebo-controlled trials conducted in 2014 that evaluated the efficacy of cannabinoid-based therapies containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) for reducing cancer-associated pain”

Their conclusion goes as follows: “There is evidence suggesting that medical cannabis reduces chronic or neu-ropathic pain in advanced cancer patients. However, the results of many studies lacked statistical power, in some cases due to limited number of study subjects.

Therefore, there is a need for the conduct of further double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials with large sample sizes in order to establish the optimal dosage and efficacy of different cannabis-based therapies.”

[nbsp]

Nausea and vomiting

Back in 75 the New England Journal of Medicine published a study of the antiemetic (anti-nausea) effects of cannabis in patients undergoing chemotherapy. Here’s an extract of that study:

“No patient vomited while experiencing a subjective ‘high.’ Oral tetrahydrocannabinol has antiemetic properties and is significantly better than a placebo in reducing vomiting caused by chemotherapeutic agents.”

In a 2005 interview with newsweek, Dr. Donald Abrams, chief of hematology-oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and a professor of clinical medicine at the University of California in San Francisco, said: “A day doesn’t go by where I don’t see a cancer patient who has nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, pain, depression and insomnia.”… “Marijuana is the only anti-nausea medicine that increases appetite.”

[nbsp]

Improves Overall Quality of Life

Cannabis multipurpose quoteLoss of appetite is just another of the symptoms cannabis can alleviate in a cancer patient. Poor Sleep and depression are also part of the big list of these symptoms.

It helps patients sleep and elevates their mood—no easy feat when someone is facing a life-threatening illness. As Dr. Abrams says “I could write six different prescriptions, all of which may interact with each other or the chemotherapy that the patient has been prescribed. Or I could just recommend trying one medicine.”

Low doses of THC have also been found to boost serotonin levels, giving it an antidepressant effect.

For an in depth list of ways cannabis can benefit cancer patients read this article.

 

Rick Simpson Cannabis most medicinal plant
Rick Simpson is without a doubt the man who put the idea of using Cannabis oil Treatment for Cancer, back on the table.

He became worldwide known after the documentary “Run from the Cure: The Rick Simpson Story” came to life in 2008.

After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal cannabis oil.

In 2003 Rick was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma skin cancer. He had 3 spots of cancer on his body, 2 on his face and 1 on his neck.

 

Rick’s decision on how to handle this diagnosis would be world changing.

After not having much luck with surgery Rick decided to try something different. He remembered a radio headline he heard almost 30 years earlier.  The radio headline had stated that the University of Virginia had found the cannabinoid in cannabis THC could kill cancer in mice.  He figured that if it kills cancer in mice it would kill his cancer too.

Rick’s decision was to go for the cannabis oil treatment. So, he applied his cannabis oil to some bandages and put them on the skin cancer.  After 4 days of waiting he decided it was time to see if anything had happened under the bandages.  To Rick’s surprise the cancer was gone.  

His cannabis oil had cured his cancer.

After 4 days of waiting he decided it was time to see if anything had happened... his cannabis oil had cured his cancer Click To Tweet

When Rick re-discovered that the cannabis oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge, curing and controlling literally hundreds of people’s illnesses…

But, when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine – leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments – and leaving Rick with unconstitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana!

It really is a documentary you must watch.

Here’s the documentary:

Make sure you also grab your copies of Rick’s Books, they are great resources:

The Rick Simpson Story

Rick Simpson Oil – Nature’s Answer for Cancer

 

Cannabis oil How to

There are many recipes out there to make cannabis oil, being Rick Simpson Cannabis Oil Recipe without a doubt the most famous one.

Rick Simpson oil is a Cannabis oil extract that you can make by soaking cannabis plant material in a solvent such as ethanol or isopropyl alcohol and then evaporating the solvent to leave only the pure cannabis oil behind. Typically, this oil is then put into small syringes in the fridge for storage and later medicinal use.

Full recipe here: How to make Rick Simpson’s Cannabis Oil

In addition, there is also a company called Endoca that sells CBD Extract, which has a foundation with the same name, which is bringing a lot of good information about cannabis as a medicine to the public for free.

They claim to have a more refined and safer procedure that the one Rick uses in his recipe.

Here is a video with the procedure:

Full recipe here: How to make Endoca’s Cannabis Oil

[nbsp]

According to cureyourcancer.org: “For most people it takes about 60 grams (or about 60ml) of cannabis oil to kill most cancers. For the average person it will take about 90 days to ingest the full 60 gram treatment of cannabis oil. It is important to remember that the 60 gram/ml 90 day treatment protocol is just a recommendation and starting point.  It can take some people a longer time to finish their treatment.”

[nbsp]

Common Cannabis Oil treatment protocol

  • First week: 3 doses of cannabis oil per day of about the size of half grain of white rice.
  • After the first week: Double the dose every four days until you get to 1 ml/1 gr. It can take up to 30-35 days to get there. Once there the dosage should remain the same until you heal the cancer.
  • After the cancer has gone: Continue the treatment for at least 2 more weeks.
  • To keep the good health: You can take 1 gr a month

It might be possible that the cannabis oil get into your bloodstream better through suppositories than orally taking the oil.

Organic cocoa butter makes an excellent medium for making the suppositories.

Add 1-2 gr of the oil per 100 gr of cocoa butter as a starting point. After that, you will increase the dose working towards having the same dose as taken orally.

What you need:

Instructions:

  • Slowly melt the cocoa butter using the candle warmer.
  • Once the butter is completely melted add the oil and stir until the oil is evenly mixed throughout.
  • Pour the mixture into the suppository molds.
  • Let them cool at room temperature.

Getting the oil as close as possible to the cancer is a good idea. Hence, their use are a great idea for cancers in the lower parts of the body (but not only for those).

[nbsp]

Cannabis Oil Treatment for Skin Cancer:

  • You need an ounce of high quality Cannabis to make about 3-4gr of oil to treat skin cancer.
  • Apply the oil directly in the affected area and cover it with a clean bandage.
  • Re-apply oil and change bandage every 1 or 2 days
  • Continue until cancer is gone and two more weeks beyond that, to ensure killing all the cancer cells.

In most skin cancer cases, the cancer disappears in less than three weeks. In extreme cases it could take longer. Just continue the treatment until the cancer is gone disappears. In conclusion, the speed of healing will depend on your own rate of healing and how deep the cancer is.

An example of a Basal Cell Carcinoma being cured in only 35 days using Cannabis Oil Treatment:

[nbsp]

No matter which cancer treatment you choose to follow, this is a must in your journey. Your habits and diet must be in accordance with an attitude of healing, so you must acquire (if you don’t have them already) very healthy ones.

First of all, it’s to try to get your body into the normal alkaline PH levels every human being should have as cancer develops ONLY in acidic and poorly oxygenated environments.

[nbsp]

Some recommendations to achieve this are:

  • If smoking, QUIT! Quite possible you already know this anyways.
  • Incorporate as many dark green leafs to your diet as you can. They are rich in chlorophyll, which it is like drinking liquid oxygen.
  • Breathing exercises: We have forgotten how to properly breathe, so this is a good thing to do. Try doing the following exercises as many times as you can during the day, especially in the morning when you wake up, to give to your body a boost of very well needed oxygen and fuel.

[nbsp]

There have been people who have experienced withdrawal symptoms when the original cannabis oil treatment is finished.

They didn’t take a maintenance dose of oil nor did they ingest cannabis in any other fashion, such as vaporizing.

These people had symptoms like:

Extreme anxiety, panic attacks, repetitive negative thoughts, inability to focus, no motivation, racing mind, insomnia, loss of appetite, sweats, lack of sex drive.

The patients manifested symptoms that in some cases mimicked depression.

These symptoms were gone within 10-14 days. Not all patients experience these side effects after they finish the cannabis oil treatment.

 

  • They support the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids for cancer patients.
  • Recognize the need for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the side effects of cancer and its treatment.
  • In addition, the Society also believes that the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance by the DEA imposes numerous conditions on researchers and deters scientific study of cannabinoids.
  • Federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study on marijuana.
  • Medical decisions about pain and symptom management should be made between the patient and his or her doctor. Furthermore, the doctors should balance the evidence of benefit and harm to the patient, the patient’s preferences and values, and any laws and regulations that may apply.
  • The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the Society’s advocacy affiliate, has not taken a position on legalization of marijuana for medical purposes because of the need for more scientific research on marijuana’s potential benefits and harms.
  • However, ACS CAN opposes the smoking or vaping of marijuana and other cannabinoids in public places because the carcinogens in marijuana smoke pose numerous health hazards to the patient and others in the patient’s presence.

Cannabis Oil Treatment Safety

Fatally overdosing on marijuana in its most commonly ingested forms is seemingly impossible.

In 1988, a DEA judge argued in favor of rescheduling marijuana in part because of its low harm profile. In his ruling, he wrote that a user would have to ingest somewhere between 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC contained in a single joint to approach lethal toxicity.

“A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response,” wrote Judge Francis Young.

Another recent study suggests a lethal dose of marijuana may actually be even higher.

To be at risk of fatal poisoning, a user would have to orally ingest more than half a gram of pure THC per kilogram of body mass, according to a 2014 analysis of the compound.

Therefore, at 88 kg, the average American man would have to down more than an ounce and a half of 100% Pure THC extract. That’s almost certainly not possible.

“That’s far more than most people will consume throughout their entire lifetime,” said Jahan Marcu, chief science officer at  Americans for Safe Access, an organization that advocates for cannabis as medicine.

 

Cannabis oil use may cause a decrease in concentration, memory, and the ability to learn and think. It is not safe to mix cannabis oil with other medications — such as antidepressants, anxiety medications, pain relievers, seizure medications and muscle relaxers — because it may cause drowsiness and fatigue.

Do not use cannabis oil, or any cannabis product, if you are pregnant, could become pregnant or are breastfeeding. You should play safe as there are very split conclusions around this topic. After all, it is your child’s and your quality of life on the line.

There are many strains of cannabis, and they are not all equal. Try to make the oil yourself with organic plant material grown by you or a reputable grower. Or if you buy it, make sure to purchase it through a reputable and lab-tested company.

Finally, go through the legal and safe means of obtaining it in order to ensure the health benefits and limit the side effects of the Cannabis Oil Treatment.

Gerson Therapy: The Ultimate Alternative Cancer Cure [Infographic]

The Gerson Therapy is effective to cure many diseases among which we can find cancer. The therapy gives a maximum boost to the body’s ability to heal itself and was designed to treat the causes of the diseases and not the symptoms. This capacity for self-healing that we all have naturally, with rare exceptions, disappears as a result of our toxic lifestyle choices, a poor diet rich in processed and acidifying foods and chemical agents from the agro and food industries and many other factors.

[click-to-summary_shortcode][/click-to-summary_shortcode]

The Gerson therapy diet consists in consuming mainly vegetable juices and some raw and cooked foods. So, this is considered to alkalize the body and detoxify it.

Cancer cannot survive in an alkaline mean, that’s why the main purpose of the Gerson Therapy; is to go back to the natural and optimal PH of the body, which is slightly alkaline. So, once the acidic state of the body is addressed, the cancer has basically no home to live in.

The Gerson Therapy, was an invention of Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920s. So, is focused on the concept that you have the power to heal yourself, and it uses non-toxic methods, including organic foods, juicing, detoxification and supplements, to activate this healing potential.

Gerson Therapy is a powerful natural treatment that strengthens the immune system and can cure cancer and many other degenerative diseases. Click To Tweet

Who was Max Gerson?

Photo credit: Wikipedia

Max Gerson was a German Jewish doctor born in 1881 who suffered from migraines so strong that they left him disabled for days in bed. Tired of not finding a solution, he set out to find one. Aware that 80% of the immune system is in the intestine, he first step was to clean it. For that he eliminated all the processed and unhealthy foods, as well as all type of meats. Instead, He replaced them with fruits and vegetables. As expected, soon the headaches disappeared.

What followed was to use their migraine diet with his patients and was surprised when one of them was fully cured from cutaneous tuberculosis. Then he decided to submit to his therapy 460 people suffering from the same disease; 456 of them were completely healed. So, from there to start treating cancer patients did not take long. Then, the first was a woman with stomach and Gallbladder cancer who in some months was cure with the therapy.

 

Dr. Albert Schweitzer

At this time, Dr. Gerson attracted the friendship of Nobel prize winner Albert Schweitzer, M.D., by curing Schweitzer’s wife of lung tuberculosis after all conventional treatments had failed. Gerson and Schweitzer remained friends for life, and maintained regular correspondence. Schweitzer’s own type II diabetes was treated and cured with Gerson’s therapy. Schweitzer said of Gerson:

gerson therapy
[nbsp]
This is what led Dr. Gerson to continue treating people and  to define his therapy as a real and natural cure against cancer that even today continues to save many lives.

In 1958, after 30 years of clinical experimentation, Dr. Gerson published A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases to detail his theories, treatment, and results.
[nbsp]

Bases of the Gerson Therapy

Gerson Therapy is a powerful natural treatment that strengthens the immune system and can cure cancer, diabetes, arthritis, coronary heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases.

The Gerson Therapy seeks to regenerate the body to recover health, supporting each important nutritional requirement flooding the body with the nutrients of almost 9 kilos of organic fruits and vegetables. Most of it is for make fresh juice, one glass per hour, 13 times per day.

Likewise, Gerson found that people were basically sick of body poisoning, acidification and nutrient deficiency that reduced the levels of the defenses, so his proposal to cure any disease was: detoxification and alkalinization of the body.

Fruits and green vegetables that are eaten raw or undercooked and in generous quantities, especially in the form of juices, provide enough vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements and sufficient fiber to the body to help oxygenation, as investigations state that deficiency of oxygen in the blood exist in all degenerative diseases.
The Therapy also stimulates the metabolism with the addition of supplements, like potassium, magnesium and others, and avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein and sodium, and other toxins.

[nbsp]

How does the Gerson Therapy work?

The process of restoring your natural defenses and rebooting your immune system is simple: 

[nbsp]

Drinking flavorful organic juices throughout each day.

The prescribed Gerson juices, made from organic fruits and vegetables, bathe your 100 trillion living cells in a constant stream of health giving vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes.

To do correctly this therapy you will need a two-step machine, which has two components: a grinder and a hydraulic press. This is due to the fact that high potency machines can destroy some of the important nutrition of the fruits and vegetables with the heat coming from the engine. Another reason is that by pressing the grinded pulp coming from the fruits and vegetables together, the malic acid from the apples will allow the other veggies to release more nutrition.

Research in this area, although limited, indicates that juice produced by the grinder/press can be as much as 50 percent higher in certain essential nutrients, and will produce 25 to 50% more than other juicers from the same amount of raw produce.

[nbsp]

Recommended Two-Step Juicers for cancer and other degenerative diseases patients:

Norwalk Juicer – Long time used and proved to be effective with the therapy. More expensive option but amazing quality and with less workload.

Champion Masticating Juicer with separate Hydraulic Press – You would be using the Champion Juicer only as a grinder and the Press to extract the juice from the pulp. This is a cost effective alternative to the Norwalk Juicer, but the workload would increase significantly.  

If you are following the therapy to treat a non-malignant condition or you are healthy and just want to give a boost to your system, you can simply use a masticating juicer, though the two-step machine is still recommended above everything.

Followed with an organic plant-based diet, with lots of raw and cooked foods.

This floods your body with more vitamins, minerals, nutrients along with the critical health promoting enzymes necessary to repair your body.

Detoxifying your body

At the cellular level using a powerful natural process that flushes chemicals and toxins from the liver.

Using Supplements.

All medications used in connection with the Gerson Therapy are classed as biologicals; materials of organic origin that are supplied in therapeutic amounts. So, some of them are: Potassium compound, Lugol’s solution, Vitamin B-12, Thyroid hormone, and Pancreatic Enzymes.

[nbsp]

The diet used in the Gerson Therapy

The Gerson diet is completely organic and naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients; extremely low in sodium and fat, and high in liquids. So, the following is a typical day of the diet of a Gerson patient performing the complete therapy:

  • Thirteen glasses of fresh juice every hour with organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Three complete vegetarian meals, prepared with organic fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal includes salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, vegetable soup and juice.
  • Fresh organic fruits and fruit desserts available at all times as snacks.

[nbsp]

Detoxification is a key aspect

Degenerative diseases leave the body increasingly unable to excrete waste properly, which commonly results in liver and kidney failure. So, to prevent this, the Gerson Therapy uses an intensive detoxification system to eliminate waste, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and reestablish the body’s essential defenses, enzymatic, mineral and hormonal systems.

Most therapies, conventional or alternative, treat only individual symptoms, ignoring what is actually causing the disease. Click To Tweet

With generous, high quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells – and the body – can regenerate, heal, and prevent future diseases.

Most therapies, conventional or alternative, treat only individual symptoms, ignoring what is actually causing the disease. Also, Gerson Therapy is effective for so many different illnesses because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself.

[nbsp]

Coffee enemas in the Gerson Therapy

A very important part of the Gerson Therapy is the frequent detoxification of tissues and blood. So, this is achieved in several ways, mainly through the use of coffee enemas.

photo credit: pinterest

Patients report that enemas reduce pain and accelerate healing. Then, from a biological point of view, the enzymatic systems of the wall of the intestine and liver are stimulated, and the flow of bile is increased. This has been shown to improve the body’s ability to eliminate toxic wastes from environmental, chemotherapeutic, and other sources. Also tumors and other diseased tissues are eliminated more quickly when degraded.

[nbsp]

Other methods of detoxification

They include castor oil, used as a traditional bile flow stimulant and as another way to improve the liver’s ability to filter blood. In addition, digestive enzymes serve to improve nutrient absorption and assist in the removal of damaged tissue.

As you can see, the Gerson Therapy is nothing less than a real, non invasive cure for cancer, that works with our natural bodily processes instead of against them, with the aim to recover our body’s natural ability to heal itself.

[nbsp]

What about mouth toxicity?

Photo credit: Pinterest

A very important consideration for success on the Gerson Therapy is the need to clear any possible dental root abscess. Then, sometimes these abscesses cause no symptoms and the patient is not aware of them.

Also, some patients are overly concerned about X-rays;  to the point that they even refuse the small amount of radiation used to diagnose possible dental problems. That is a mistake. So, the amount of radiation is not harmful; but the possible existence of dental root canal infections or abscesses will negate the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy.

Sometimes seriously damaged or infected teeth have to be removed in order to eliminate the constant `re-infection’ caused by these toxins in the mouth.

[nbsp]

IMPORTANT:

Please check your teeth and make sure that there are no dental problems as you start on the Therapy. Then, another possible dental problem is mercury. So, most people are now aware that the so-called “silver amalgam” fillings contain about 51% mercury.
[nbsp]

This is a highly toxic heavy metal which affects not only the nervous system but can cause untold problems and can counteract the healing effect of the Gerson Therapy.

There are now techniques available for removing these amalgam fillings correctly. However, no matter how carefully the fillings are removed, some of the mercury is released as gas or particulate matter and re-enters the system.

This causes a temporary mercury poisoning, which is fairly easily overcome by the Gerson Therapy. However, it is unwise to subject the seriously or terminally ill patient, just starting the Gerson Therapy, to this additional poisoning. So, that’s why the patient need to wait at least 6-12 months until he is much better before considering the removal of the offending fillings.

In Which Types of Cancer is The Gerson Therapy More Effective?

Although opponents of the Gerson Therapy argue that no scientific studies exist and that the Gerson Therapy has not been scientifically proven effective, the basic components of the therapy such as enzymes, oxygenation, plant-based diet and antioxidants have been extensively studied separately by a large amount of scientists and shown to be effective in the treatment of cancer. In the FAQS of the Gerson’s page says the following about which types of cancer have the best effect of this therapy:

“The Gerson Therapy has had repeatedly good results with the following diseases: melanoma, lymphoma, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). We are continuing to do more research into our patient base over the past 10 years to obtain more current information.”

[nbsp]

What types of cancer do not respond well to the Gerson Therapy?

According to Gerson Institute, there are certain types of cancer that do not respond well or do not respond at all. “These include acute leukemia, pancreatic cancer after treatment with chemotherapy, and brain cancers other than an early stage astrocytoma.”

They also said that this therapy, should not be dispense to organ or stem cell transplant recipients or people on kidney dialysis.

[nbsp]

How long the person have to be on the therapy?

According to Dr. Max Gerson book’s “A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases“, he said that a patient needed about 18 months of treatment. That was more than 50 years ago. According to the Gerson Institute, with the environment becoming more and more toxic, the patient need to be on the therapy for at least two or three years, and in some cases as long as five years.

[nbsp]

Gerson Therapy Today

Photo credit: Gerson Institute

When Dr. Gerson died in 1959, her daughter Charlotte vowed his work would not die with him. In 1977 she founded the Gerson Institute with Norman Fritz, president of the Cancer Control Society. The Gerson Institute established treatment centers and trained holistic physicians, nurses, and kitchen help in the facets of Dr. Gerson’s treatment.

There are currently two licensed clinics in the world. None of them in the US, thanks to Federal Laws that prohibit any “treatment” other than the conventional ones as chemo, radio and surgery for cancer patients. So, Charlotte went on to the neighbour country of Mexico and help establishing the  Gerson Clinic in Tijuana.

In 2009  the Gerson Health Centre opened their doors in Hungary. So, patients go to the clinics to begin the Gerson Therapy under the care of the Gerson doctors. While at the clinics, the patients and their companions also take classes and lessons to instruct them on how to practice the therapy on their own. So that they can continue following the Gerson Therapy once they return home.

[nbsp]

The Five-Years Cancer Survival Rates

Unfortunately, the five-year cancer survival rates for Gerson therapy patients have been greatly under reported in studies and the media. However, a recent review of melanoma patients found that Gerson therapy is often far more effective than traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.

For example, in patients with localized melanoma, 100 percent survived for five years with the Gerson therapy treatments, compared to to only 79 percent of patients who received conventional treatments. So, the survival rates reported for various other stages of cancer remained considerably higher than those reported elsewhere as well.

However, there have been no clinical trials that support the findings of these studies. But, Why..? We could say that the most obvious answer is: Drug companies are not interested in medicines that cannot be patented.

Key Takeaways

  • The Gerson therapy diet consists in consuming mainly vegetable juices and some raw and cooked foods. So, this is considered to alkalize the body and detoxify it.
  • Cancer cannot survive in an alkaline mean, that’s why the main purpose of the Gerson Therapy, is to go back to the natural and optimal PH of the body, which is slightly alkaline.
  • Once the acidic state of the body is addressed, the cancer has basically no home to live in.

Who was Max Gerson?

  • Max Gerson was a German Jewish doctor born in 1881 who suffered from migraines so strong that they left him disabled for days in bed. So, tired of not finding a solution, he set out to find one. (source)
  • Aware that 80% of the immune system is in the intestine, he decided as a first step to clean it. So, for that he eliminated all the processed and unhealthy foods, as well as all type of meats. Instead, he replaced them with fruits and vegetables.
  • What followed was to use their migraine diet with his patients and was surprised when one of them was fully cured from cutaneous tuberculosis. (source)
  • Then he decided to submit to his therapy 460 people suffering from the same disease; 456 of them were completely healed.
  • From there to start treating cancer patients did not take long. The first was a woman with stomach and Gallbladder cancer who in some months she cure with the therapy.
  • In 1958, after 30 years of clinical experimentation, Dr. Gerson published A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases to detail his theories, treatment, and results. (source)

Bases of the Gerson Therapy

  • The Gerson Therapy seeks to regenerate the body to recover health, supporting each important nutritional requirement flooding the body with the nutrients of almost 9 kilos of organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Most of it is used to make fresh juice, one glass per hour, 13 times per day.
  • Gerson found that people were basically sick of body poisoning, acidification and nutrient deficiency that reduced the levels of the defenses, so his proposal to cure any disease was: detoxification and alkalinization of the body.

How does the Gerson Therapy work?

Drink flavorful organic juices throughout each day.

  • The prescribed Gerson juices, made from organic fruits and vegetables, bathe your 100 trillion living cells in a constant stream of health giving vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes.
  • To do correctly this therapy you will need a two-step machine, which has two components; a grinder and a hydraulic press.
  • This is due to the fact that high potency machines can destroy some of the important nutrition of the fruits and vegetables with the heat coming from the engine.
  • Another reason is that by pressing the grinded pulp coming from the fruits and vegetables together; the malic acid from the apples will allow the other veggies to release more nutrition.
  • Research in this area, although limited, indicates that juice produced by the grinder/press can be as much as 50 percent higher in certain essential nutrients; and will produce 25 to 50% more than other juicers from the same amount of raw produce. (see full study)
  • If you are following the therapy to treat a non-malignant condition; or you are healthy and just want to give a boost to your system, you can simply use a masticating juicer, though the two-step machine is still recommended above everything.

Do an organic plant-based diet, with lots of raw and cooked foods.

  • This floods your body with more vitamins, minerals, nutrients along with the critical health promoting enzymes necessary to repair your body.

Detox your body

  • At the cellular level using a powerful natural process that flushes chemicals and toxins from the liver.

Use Supplements.

  • All medications used in connection with the Gerson Therapy are classed as biologicals, materials of organic origin that are supplied in therapeutic amounts.
  • Some of them are: Potassium compound, Lugol’s solution, Vitamin B-12, Thyroid hormone, and Pancreatic Enzymes.

The diet used in the Gerson Therapy

The following is a typical day of the diet of a Gerson patient performing the complete therapy:

  • Thirteen glasses of fresh juice every hour with organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Three complete vegetarian meals, prepared with organic fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal includes salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, vegetable soup and juice.
  • Fresh organic fruits and fruit desserts available at all times as snacks.

Detoxification is a key aspect

  • Degenerative diseases leave the body increasingly unable to excrete waste properly, which commonly results in liver and kidney failure. (source)
  • To prevent this; the Gerson Therapy uses an intensive detoxification system to eliminate waste, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and reestablish the body’s essential defenses, enzymatic, mineral and hormonal systems.
  • With generous; high quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells – and the body – can regenerate, heal, and prevent future diseases.
  • Most therapies; conventional or alternative, treat only individual symptoms, ignoring what is actually causing the disease.
  • Gerson Therapy is effective for so many different illnesses because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself.

Coffee enemas in the Gerson Therapy

  • A very important part of the Gerson Therapy is the frequent detoxification of tissues and blood. Then, this is achieved in several ways, mainly through the use of coffee enemas. The scientific basis for the use of coffee enemas is very well documented. (see full study)
  • From a biological point of view; the enzymatic systems of the wall of the intestine and liver are stimulated, and the flow of bile is increased.
  • This improve the body’s ability to eliminate toxic wastes from environmental, chemotherapeutic, and other sources. Also tumors and other diseased tissues are eliminated more quickly when degraded. (see full study)

Other methods of detoxification

  • Castor oil; is traditional a bile flow stimulant and as another way to improve the liver’s ability to filter blood. (source)
  • In addition, digestive enzymes serve to improve nutrient absorption and assist in the removal of damaged tissue.

What about mouth toxicity?

  • A very important consideration for success on the Gerson Therapy is the need to clear any possible dental root abscess. Sometimes, these abscesses cause no symptoms and the patient is not aware of them.
  • Also, some patients are overly concerned about X-rays; to the point that they even refuse the small amount of radiation used to diagnose possible dental problems. That is a mistake.
  • The amount of radiation is not harmful; but the possible existence of dental root canal infections or abscesses will negate the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy.
  • Sometimes seriously damaged or infected teeth have to be removed; in order to eliminate the constant `re-infection’ caused by these toxins in the mouth.

IMPORTANT:

  • Please check your teeth and make sure that there are no dental problems as you start on the Therapy.
  • Another possible dental problem is mercury. Most people are now aware that the so-called “silver amalgam” fillings contain about 51% mercury. (source)
  • This is a highly toxic heavy metal which affects not only the nervous system; but can cause untold problems and can counteract the healing effect of the Gerson Therapy.
  • There are now techniques available for removing these amalgam fillings correctly. However, no matter how carefully they remove the fillings; some of the mercury is release as gas or particulate matter and re-enters the system.
  • This causes a temporary mercury poisoning, which is fairly easily overcome by the Gerson Therapy. However, it is unwise to subject the seriously or terminally ill patient; just starting the Gerson Therapy, to this additional poisoning.
  • That’s why the patient need to wait at least 6-12 months; until he is much improved before considering the removal of the offending fillings.

Gerson Therapy Today

  • When Dr. Gerson died in 1959, her daughter Charlotte vowed his work would not die with him. (source)
  • She has continued Dr. Gerson’s work through the Gerson Clinic in Mexico and the Gerson Health Centre in Hungary. (source)
  • In 1977 she founded the Gerson Institute with Norman Fritz, president of the Cancer Control Society. So, the Gerson Institute established treatment centers and trained holistic physicians, nurses, and kitchen help in the facets of Dr. Gerson’s treatment. (source)
  • A recent review of melanoma patients found that Gerson therapy is often far more effective than traditional cancer treatments; such as chemotherapy and radiation. (see full study)

However, there have been no clinical trials that support the findings of these studies. But, Why..? We could say that the most obvious answer is: Drug companies are not interested in medicines that cannot be patented — and nature cannot be patented.

Recommendations

Two-Step Juicers recommended for cancer and other degenerative diseases patients:

  • Norwalk Juicer – Long time used and proved to be effective with the therapy. More expensive option but amazing quality and with less workload.
  • Champion Masticating Juicer with separate Hydraulic Press – You would be using the Champion Juicer only as a grinder and the Press to extract the juice from the pulp. This is a cost effective alternative to the Norwalk Juicer, but the workload would increase significantly

Masticating Juicers recommended for non-malignant conditions and healthy people:
