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. Maria had already experienced the devastating toxic effects of chemotherapy in her previous battle with breast cancer, twelve years earlier. She felt that, this time, there had to be a better way.
Fortunately, her family discovered the Gerson Therapy online, and she began to follow the Gerson Therapy at home.
I first met Marie, one of the protagonists of my upcoming documentary The Food Cure, in the sunny courtyard of the licensed Gerson clinic in Mexico. We had spoken on the phone once before, and she greeted me with a big, radiant smile. I was expecting someone who looked and acted “sick,” but it struck [...]

When Randy Clemens learned that his mother’s lymphoma had returned, and in a more aggressive form, he didn’t shut down or give up. He [...]
Filmmaker Crowdfunding New Documentary About Her Mother’s Cancer Journey on the Gerson Therapy. Help Make it Happen!
We recently heard from a young filmmaker named Sara Bellin, whose mother was recently diagnosed with cancer. When her mother made the life-changing decision to forgo conventional medical treatment in favor of the Gerson Therapy, Sara was inspired to document her mother’s treatment. Sara is currently raising funds to make a documentary film about her [...]
This week, Anderson Cooper had an amazing interview with a charismatic fellow with an affinity for giving shout-outs to his favorite foods. No, I’m not talking about his now-viral interview with Charles Ramsey, the McDonalds-loving hero who helped rescue three women from captivity in Cleveland. I’m talking about his interview with Sy Harger, a six-year-old [...]
March of 2013 is my one-year anniversary of completing the Gerson Therapy for Lyme disease. And I have to report, so far, so good!
A couple years ago I would not have had the strength to tell my story. But now I’m well on my way to a recovery from Lyme disease, and it’s important for me to pay it forward and make a difference in someone else’s quality of life.
