Hello. Girls weekend was grand. I did miss our Juicer and healthy food. I had way too much party and comfort food. Above is a picture of our sunset from the house we were staying in for the weekend. It was absolutely beautiful, the sound of Corrola in Outer Banks, North Carolina. This picture was taken by my friend. Today I would like to share more how we came to know about Juicing as a therapy for health. Max Gerson was a German physician who developed the Gerson Therapy, an alternative dieateray therapy, which he claimed could cure cancer and most chronic diseases. His daughter, Charlotte Gerson, is still alive today and claims that his therapies can and will cure almost all chronic diseases. If you were to search wikipedia for Dr. Gerson you would read that his therapies were never scientifically supported or proven. However today because of continued curiosity and efforts for healing, the Gerson Therapy is still being used. In Japan today they are using the therapy and scientifically studying their results, and curing people of cancer. For Americans the only opportunity for Gerson therapy is a hospital in Mexico.
Dr. Gerson’s initial therapy was used on himself to cure his migraine headaches. It worked. Guess what? The majority of Dr. Gerson’s therapy is just straight out juicing. “The Gerson Therapy seeks to regenerate the body to health, supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from almost 20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. ” For cancer treatment, the treatment is juicing 13 times a day. But we are not talking about shrinking tumors here. We are talking about fighting free radicals and healing our bodies of chronic diseases that may have environmental causes.
The following is the Green Juice Recipe by Dr. Gerson himself.
Dark green lettuces: red and green leaf lettuces, romaine, endives
Iceberg is useless and do not use
Beet tops (young inner leaves)
watercress – 5 or 6 leaves
Red cabbage – 2 – 3 leaves
Green bell pepper – 1/4
Swiss chard – little
Green apple – 1
I personally have not tried this recipe yet. I’m not that familiar with a few of the ingredients. I’m searching. Also, I have another movie recommendation, “Dying to Have Known” . Filmmaker Steve Kroschel sets out to determine the legitimacy of Dr. Gerson’s holistic cancer treatment. Again, if you have Netflix you can watch it instantly. I hope you check it out. God Bless!
