Cancer. Hepatitis. Migraines. Arthritis. Heart disease. Emphysema. For years, the medical establishment has called these chronic or life-threatening diseases incurable. But now, the Gerson Therapy offers hope for those seeking relief from hundreds of different diseases. One of the first alternative cancer therapies, the Gerson Therapy has successfully treated thousands of patients for over sixty years.
For over 60 years, thousands of men and women, told by their doctors that they were dying, have recovered from deadly diseases - lung, breast, liver, pancreas, melanoma, lymphoma, and other cancers, lupus, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, migraines, and more - by following the safe, natural, and proven Gerson Therapy, using fresh, organic fruits, and vegetables to heal the body.
Filmmaker, Stephen Kroschel, sets out to find hard evidence of the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy, a long-suppressed natural cancer treatment. His travels take him across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, from upstate New York to San Diego to Alaska, from Japan to Holland and Mexico. In the end, he presents the testimony of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists, who testify to the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy and shows the hard scientific evidence to back up their claims.
After the unexpected and tragic death of his mother, 15-year old Garrett, who is an animal-loving teenager, was spiraling downward and fast. His father withdrew Garrett to be home-schooled to avoid flunking out. Growing up on an Alaskan animal reserve, Garrettâs father recognized his sonâs interest in the dietary habits of their animals. That prompted him to assign a book written by Dr. Max Gerson, which maintains that there is a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer. Fascinated and curious, Garrett embarks on a cross-country road trip to investigate the merits of The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how the multi-billion dollar medical industry has made it their mission to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures.
