This article originally appeared in the Fall 2014 issue of the Gerson Institute’s quarterly newsletter, the Healing News. Clay might provide us with the earliest example of using the earth’s resources to solve medical problems.

Last week, we looked at the nasty chemicals lurking in feminine hygiene products. Today, let’s talk about what kinds of menstrual products you can use to replace the standard drugstore products that contain those troubling substances. There is virtually no good reason to use douches, wipes or deodorants; they do more harm than good! […]

With Mother’s Day coming up, we wanted to share a story of healing that you helped make possible – combined, of course, with the amazing determination, courage and perseverance of Maria and her family.
In 2012, Maria had a traumatic surgery to remove a cancerous tumor surrounding her colon. Her doctors said she would die without chemotherapy and radiation.
