While you can pore over many case histories and patient stories in the Gerson Therapy books, there’s nothing quite like hearing a patient tell their own healing story, in their own words. We have compiled here some testimonials from patients who have used the Gerson Therapy to heal themselves and experienced extraordinary recoveries.
These patient testimonials represent only a tiny fraction of the number of patients and conditions that have been healed by the Gerson Therapy. We plan to add more testimonials soon, to provide a more complete perspective of the many conditions that can be healed with the Gerson Therapy.
By hearing of these remarkable peoples’ personal experiences, you may gain a little insight into how the Gerson Therapy works and discover what life on the Gerson Therapy is like. We hope you enjoy hearing these stories!
