How can I obtain the crude liver extract? What should I do if I am unable to find the crude liver extract?

The availability of crude liver for injection varies greatly. At this time, the clinic in Mexico has obtained a brand called Parggon. Patients who attend the clinic are able to purchase a supply to bring home. However, there is no vendor who can ship this to the US. ISHI can ship most places outside the US (see a list of Gerson supplement suppliers here).

For those who do not have access to this crude liver, we are making the following recommendations:

  • Take an extra desiccated liver capsule per dose, if it is well tolerated. In total, a patient may take three caps of dessicated liver, three times a day. This would be contraindicated if the patient has gout. If this causes stomach upset, the liver caps can be taken with meals, when the digestive enzymes are taken.
  • B-12 can be taken orally or sublingually at 1000 mcg daily or alternatively a 1 cc injection per week. Methylcobalamin is the preferred form of B-12 for injection or oral.

Crude liver for injections is available at some compounding pharmacies in the US, but requires a doctor’s prescription. If you can obtain this, it will be of a higher concentration, so check with the Gerson Institute to see if the dosage needs to be adjusted. B-12 for injection is also available by prescription. We suggest you see if your doctor will prescribe these items for you.

Milk Thistle, an herb which is hepatoprotective and hepatorestorative, can be taken periodically at 250 mg twice a day between meals. It should be an extract standardized to 80% silimarin. This can provide extra support for the liver.
