Philippines’ only accredited Gerson Therapist, Dra. Imelda S. Edodollon of Holistic Integrative Care Center (HICC)
As we age, our bodies change. As we live, we acquire a variety of carcinogens and toxic pollutants—through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the medicines we take.
Over the years, it has been proven that using Gerson Therapy could help recover from chronic degenerative diseases including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, among others. It is a powerful, natural treatment that reactivates our body’s magnificent ability to heal itself through organic, vegetarian diet, juicing, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
“The Gerson Institute is committed to giving an effective option for enhanced quality of life in harmony with nature, for ourselves and future generations.”
It uses a holistic approach to healing that boosts our immune system without damaging side effects. The Gerson Therapy heavily relies on fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, which allow the body to have the right amount of enzymes, minerals, and nutrients to eliminate toxins from the body.
According to The Gerson Institute, a typical daily meal looks something like this:
- Thirteen glasses of fresh, organic fruit juices, in an hourly basis.
- Three vegetarian meals; salad, cooked veggies, baked potato, soup, and juice.
- Fresh fruit and fresh fruit desert for snacks all throughout the day.
“To make best use of the Gerson therapy, it requires attention to details and consistency.”
The Gerson Therapy offers hope for those who seek relief from different diseases. However, there is no guarantee that any approach, conventional or alternative, will reverse every case of chronic degenerative illnesses (i.e. cancer). Many variables and factors are involved in determining whether a person will successfully recover. It includes family history, occupational or environmental exposures, dietary and lifestyle habits, inherited traits or genetic weak links, and pre-existing conditions.
Do not start the Gerson Therapy if any of the following conditions apply without the supervision of a Certified Gerson Therapy Practitioner:
- Brain metastases
- Severe kidney damage and/or if the patient has ever been on dialysis
- Foreign bodies such as pacemakers, breast implants, steel plates or screws
Following the Gerson Therapy requires massive lifestyle changes, which may not be suited for everyone. Patients must fully educate themselves about all that the Gerson Therapy entails, and have the discipline and determination to fully commit to the therapy for several years.
