In the movie, Dying To Have Known, filmmaker Steve Kroschel went on a 52-day journey to find evidence to the effectiveness of Gerson Therapy — a long-suppressed natural cancer cure. His travels take him across both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, from upstate New York to San Diego to Alaska, from Japan and Holland to Spain and Mexico.
In the movie, he presents the testimonies of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who testify to the efficacy of Gerson Therapy in curing cancer and other degenerative diseases, and presents the hard scientific proof to back up their claims.There is a Japanese medical school professor who used Gerson Therapy to cure himself of liver cancer over 15 years ago, a lymphoma patient who was diagnosed as terminal over 50 years ago as well as noted critics of this world-renowned healing method who dismiss it out of hand as “pure quackery.”

So the question that remains, what is Gerson Therapy and how does it work?
What is Gerson Therapy?
Gerson Therapy is a nutrition-based, holistic therapy which has seen much controversy since it was first developed in the late 1920s.
Dr Max Gerson developed Gerson Therapy after experimenting with eliminating certain foods from his diet, in an effort to cure the migraines he frequently suffered from. When he was successful, he set about developing the therapy as a whole, believing that all the many toxins in the environment are what cause ill health and poison the human body. This includes all of the pesticides and chemicals which appear on produce, as well as the poor quality of processed foods.
So he developed a diet with the aim of ridding the body of these toxins and maintaining health through the benefits of a revitalized immune system.
How does Gerson Therapy work?
Gerson Therapy is not a quick fix by any means, as it is recommended to be used over the course of six to 18 months. A process, called by Gerson ‘hyperalimentation’, occurs when the individual drinks 10-13 glasses of fresh, organic juices every day, each hour, as well as three large vegan and organic meals plus numerous other fruits and vegetables throughout the day too.
It is believed that by flooding the body with all of these natural nutrients, the body can begin to rid itself of all the years of accumulated toxins. Gerson also developed a coffee enema with the purpose of stimulating the liver to produce bile which would in turn flush out toxins from the liver, as well as a number of supplements to replace lost minerals and to help digestive processes.
All food in the diet must be organically grown and fresh and cannot include any processed foods or drinks. It is also salt-free, and Gerson bans tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceuticals as well.
Regarding claims that Gerson Therapy is the cure for cancer, the American Cancer Society has stated that there is no scientific evidence of this and that the principles used are not widely accepted in the US medical community. However, as Steve Kroschel’s movie shows, the evidence is deliberately suppressed.
Are there any known side effects with Gerson Therapy?
For people who wholeheartedly start the Gerson therapy ‘diet’, there are bound to be a number of side effects felt because the body is suddenly having to change its ways after many years of getting used to the foods we eat. So patients will feel different and may have some ill effects.
