Importantly, the Gerson therapy is supposed to be an alternative therapy, it does not encourage the use of chemotherapy alongside its regime. This is because it is believed that those undergoing chemotherapy prior to Gerson therapy have an immunological disadvantage. The use of radiotherapy is considered more compatible with Gerson therapy 2. One published review of the therapy found that the theoretical rationale behind the Gerson therapy does not stand up to scrutiny 3. Prevalence of use Reliable estimates of how many people follow the therapy worldwide are not available.

Legal issues There are two Gerson treatment centres licensed by the Gerson Institute in the world one in Mexico and one in Hungary. The Gerson Institute offers training to a variety of different health practitioners to enable people to become licensed Gerson Practitioners. The weekly fee is inclusive of accommodation, meals and treatment.

People are encouraged to continue the therapy for approximately two years at home. This involves ongoing expense including regular telephone consultations with a private physician, juicing equipment, large quantities of organic vegetables and the cost of supplements. In total the Gerson therapy consumes large amounts of time, money and other resources and only dedicated individuals will be able to stick to the demands of the therapy.

Does it work? No randomised controlled trials have been conducted on the Gerson Therapy. Clinical trials A five-year survival rate retrospective study of cancer patients found higher survival rates in patients with melanoma, colorectal and ovarian cancers undergoing the Gerson regime than for patients undergoing other therapies 7. However, it should be noted this work was conducted by members of the Gerson Research Organisation and has been criticised as being seriously methodologically flawed 8.

This research did not use the same matched control for each of their categories studied. Furthermore, it was not performed under tightly controlled conditions assessing the other therapies that the patients may have been receiving.

A preliminary study conducted in tracked down 21 patients over a five-year period and found all but one who was not cancer free had died at the end of the study period However, due to not obtaining detailed medical records at the start of this study this research is not very substantive.

In , Reed et al. Two investigations were conducted and presented in one paper. The first investigation concerned how patients responded to the therapy and the other was a psychological study of the patients at the clinic.

For the first investigation, the Gerson clinic presented cases to the researchers. Of the only 27 cases were able to be assessed as they possessed independent documentation of their disease from a mainstream physician. The researchers concluded that there was little evidence for the Gerson therapy having an anti-tumour effect, instead finding only a very small amount of successful responses with three of the 27 cases showing a complete response and one patient with a stable disease result.

The second study by Reed et al collected data from 15 patients concerning their psychological state while undergoing the therapy The researchers found a marked enhancement of pain control and quality of life was enhanced. However, it must be noted that no firm conclusions can be drawn from this observational study due to the small number of participants. A case study analysis of six people with cancer who followed the Gerson therapy concluded that some support, both physical and psychological, appeared to be offered by this regime The analysis reported that some potential anti-cancer effects appeared to be present in the patients who undertook this regime.

The patients also had an increased sense of hope and empowerment. The authors stated however that many cofactors may have influenced these findings; some of the patients were undergoing conventional treatment, some were also using other complementary approaches.

The Gerson Therapy -- Revised And Updated

Is it safe? There is concern that people may choose to use this regime as an alternative to chemotherapy, thereby avoiding mainstream treatment.

The Gerson Institute does not recommend the use of chemotherapy with the diet since the chemotherapy is seen as a poison in the body, and during detoxification the body would find difficulty in dealing with the level of toxins 1. A glass of freshly prepared juice from vegetables and fruits must be consumed every hour for 13 hours throughout the day. The vegetables and fruits used on the diet are very high in potassium and very low in sodium.

Food preparation is also controlled.

Food may be prepared only in cast-iron pots and pans; no aluminum cookware is allowed. Juices must be prepared using a specific type of juicer that crushes the fruit or vegetable rather than grinding it into pulp. Gerson advocated organically produced food, with all fruits, vegetables, and grains grown and raised in soil free of pesticides and contaminants and enriched only with natural fertilizers.

Some changes in the original diet have occurred over time, but the initiation phase of the diet has always been a vegetarian diet.

Although there have been additions and substitutions to the basic list of supplements, there have been few changes since the s. The extract and juice were given to patients via injection with the vitamin B In , the use of injectable crude liver extract was banned by the U.

Food and Drug Administration because it was found to be contaminated with Campylobacter. Pancreatic enzymes are given to assist in the digestion and the elimination of the breakdown products in the colon. Coffee or chamomile enemas are the third component of the Gerson therapy.

Coffee enemas supposedly dilate the bile duct in the liver, thereby allowing the liver to release the breakdown products more easily and speed their removal to the intestine. At the beginning of therapy, a patient may take four or more coffee enemas per day. Literature suggests that coffee enemas help relieve the pain associated with gastrointestinal cancers; however, there is only anecdotal evidence to suggest that the enemas actually dilate the bile ducts.

Gerson had observed that as soon as his cancer patients started on the diet regimen, they released large amounts of sodium in their urine. Healthy cells had a high ratio of potassium to sodium; diseased cells had a low ratio of potassium to sodium or an abundance of sodium. The Gerson therapy is the basis for other CAM therapies that include cleansing enemas or special diets as part of their regimens, most notably the Gonzalez regimen.

While in Germany, Gerson had suffered from severe migraine headaches and developed a vegetarian diet as a way to cure his migraines.

He conducted a successful clinical trial in Germany using the vegetarian diet. The accolades he received from Dr.

At that time he wrote that there was no conclusive evidence from his work that cancer was influenced by diet; however, he did think that diet was a useful supportive measure. Evolving evidence supports the idea that a plant-based diet plays a role in cancer prevention. Gerson theorized that the use of pancreatic enzymes would reduce demands on the liver and pancreas , already in a weakened state, to manufacture the enzymes necessary to convert food into usable nutrients ; this would help stabilize the nutritional needs of the body while it undergoes the detoxification process.

However, it has been reported that these enzymes are not broken down but are released into the bloodstream and used again in the digestive process.
