Natural News Healing Miracles event last weekend. Afterward she met with attendees and jauntily demonstrated how she could still touch her toes with no problem.
I'd known about the Gerson Institute's natural cancer cure for years and was almost star-struck to meet a woman whose clinic can cure cancer in 30-40% of terminal cancer patients. That is, cancer patients whose bodies have been so ravaged by surgery and chemotherapy that medicine can no longer help them. Many can be brought back to life naturally, through their intensive juicing and detox program. The Gerson Institute's cure rates are even higher in those who have never had conventional cancer therapies, since the immune system is in much better shape.
Before the event, I became increasingly intrigued when I heard Mike Adams of Natural News interview Charlotte Gerson. She stated that the Gerson Therapy, pioneered by her father in the 1930s, was "even helping Lyme patients." Wow, even helping Lyme patients? Did she imply that Lyme was harder to cure than cancer? How much is it helping Lyme patients? How long does it take to get results? Is it the same therapy used in cancer? I was dying to ask her my questions.
After her rousing talk I had my chance to ask her some questions, but due to her popularity, I didn't get all of them answered. First off, she said that she is limited to the Gerson Therapy, but she "has helped people." I took this to mean that Gerson Therapy must be complemented by other therapies, presumably antibiotics, whether herbal or pharmaceutical. She turned the tables on my question-asking and told me Lyme patients have to be careful of fluoride's effects on the thyroid and that we should not be showering in fluoride nor drinking it. I asked if my reverse osmosis filter was doing the trick for our drinking water, and I got a loud, "NO!" When I said I didn't know that, she said, "Well, WHO would KNOW?" She is a character! Then, off she went with another attendee bursting with their own questions.
Gerson Therapy sounds like a treatment worth investigating by any Lyme patient. She said that in cancer, the two main problems are deficiency (vitamins and immune system) and toxicity. This is true in Lyme as well, but we have the added job of killing the bugs, too.
