3/3 THE GERSON MIRACLE (2004) [Eng. Captions]

Uploaded by yashamill on 16.12.2010

Over 2,400 years ago, Plato wrote:
"No attempt should be made to cure the body without curing the soul."
The body is a miraculous in its design and flexibility.
It is a forgiving machine.
Even following decades of punishment, it can rebound.
One of the first steps we can take is to avoid environmental poisons,
even those we think are insignificant.
Harmful fractions, such as chlorine and fluorine,
belong to a dangerous class of chemicals called halogens.
These chemicals are found in virtually all municipal drinking water
and inflicts severe damage in the body's endocrine system
particularly the thyroid gland.
Fluorine, a highly toxic by-product of aluminum manufacture,
is very dangerous and expensive to disposal.
Industrial principals once convinced the American Dental Association,
that it would prevent cavities,
an assertion that since is proven false.
Nonetheless, they found a way to dispose of this product
by putting it in the public water supply.
The only way to rid the water of this dangerous chemical is by steam distillation.
But there are other semi hidden dangers
in ingestion of daily poisons, that can be avoided.
Charlotte cites one example, in particular.
Well, the dental amalgam is now coming more and more into the floor,
even while dentist used to dispute it.
It's interesting to note that the American Dental Association
claims it perfectly harmless in your mouth, however
if there is any of the amalgam left over from what goes into
your tooth, it isn't just left in the office. They are required to dispose of it as TOXIC WASTE!
But in your mouth it's safe? Of course it isn't!
And it's been clearly demonstrated that lot of children have
seizures and all kinds of mental disturbances from the dental amalgam... and so do adults.
The danger of the illegal street drugs in public and private schools is heavily publicized.
But there are wolves dressed as sheep,
that are welcome as they walk through the front door.
The trouble with Ritalin is sometimes...
first of all it's never been tested on children under 6.
And they're giving it now to children in pre-school and kindergarten.
If the nurse, or the teacher feels that the kids are restless or causing a problem
then they report them and the nurse reports it to the doctor
and without any further thought they put them on Ritalin.
It does cause permanent brain damage, even when they quit taking the Ritalin.
And the American services
like the Army, Navy and the Air Force will not accept
any person into the service who has ever been on Ritalin,
because they are uncontrollable.
They are mentally disturbed.
Rest is essential for all living organisms.
During sleep, not only is the nervous system replenished like a storage battery being charged,
but the body rids itself of poisons,
in a way that only sleep can accomplish.
That is why upon awaking, energy is born a new.
Sufficient rest is critical for children.
And with the bombardment in daily life of hits to their systems in modern society
repeated lack of it can hinder and sometimes permanently damage a child's brain development.
The developing brain of a child at this time in human history,
must clear a number of hurdles in a bid for genetic normalcy.
Children are more vulnerable to environmental pollutants than adults,
because of their size and faster metabolism.
One of the more publicized vulnerabilities is exposure to lead
especially lead from older homes, where leaded paint was used in the 1970's.
Remodeling and sanding of older homes
produces a ticking time-bomb if the dust is breath in.
These airborne heavy metals along with numerous other
chemicals in the food and water are now unintentionally passed on to the next generation.
But the removal, known as chelation, of such toxins, even heavy metals,
such as lead, is possible with close adherence to the Gerson therapy.
Even the body itself can overproduce a substance
that becomes poison in excess,
in stressful situations if the liver is unhealthy and unable to neutralize it.
It's called adrenaline.
Meet filmmaker Steve Kroeschel.
Steve films and performs stunts for Hollywood films,
and pushes the envelope and the adrenaline glands to the limit.
In an occupation that demands split second life or death decisions,
the adrenaline flows in excess, and if not neutralized, can poison the body into illness.
The potency of this substance is profound.
When a drop of adrenaline is secreted by the adrenal glands
which are located on little caps on top of each kidney
it enters the bloodstream and is diluted
instantly to between 1 to 2 billions of its original strength.
This would compared to one single drop of ink spilled into 6 million gallons of water.
The purpose of adrenalin secretion is to accelerate
the fighter fight response and protect oneself in threatening situations.
The largest gland of the body
- the liver - when healthy, is able to neutralize the secretions.
In today's world the abuse of this magnificent organ is relentless.
Many people have liver disease and don't even know it.
For the detection of a liver problem via illness
requires the liver to drop below 30% of its full working capacity
before symptoms become detectable.
One of the Gerson therapy's main objectives
is to restore the liver to 100% capacity and ensure its health.
Another of this filmmaker occupation is showcasing wild animals in natural habitats
for public education as well as for the motion picture industry.
Working with wild life
all my life, I'd learned about nutrition.
Like this lynx here - if he wasn't fed correctly,
he wouldn't be tame and happy and come to me when I call him.
We live up in the north country here and lynx are found in the wild.
And I use him for education.
They are very beautiful animals, but if they're not fed right,
they don't have beautiful fur... they are not friendly
and they certainly won't come back to me when I call them.
The Gerson Therapy has changed my life.
This 43 year old man follows the Gerson life style, as a preventative measure.
And in doing so, has acquired tremendous energy,
to achieve a physical workload, equivalent to several people.
Like many others who do not have degenerative disease,
Steve is immune to even the slightest viral annoyances,
such as the common cold, or other discomforts such as headaches,
and other minor health hindrances.
Because many of the animals are carnivores, in the Wildlife Center,
their health and reproductive ability must be maintained at the highest levels.
Several years ago, scientist researcher Dr. Francis Pottenger
ran many experiments with regular house cats that lasted several years.
He divided his cats into various groups and fed each group differently.
Some he gave certain cooked meats, some he gave raw meats.
Those that received just cooked meats over few generations,
not only declined physical robustness,
but they were plagued with illness and had temperament problems.
Eventually, they were unable to reproduce successfully.
The feces from the animals receiving the cooked product
were used as fertilizer to raise string beans.
But the beans didn't grow. Some beans hardly even sprouted.
The house cats given the fresh raw meat product thrived and produced through each generation successfully.
Clearly all carnivore animals such as these
were designed to hunt and kill, and survive on prey composed of flesh.
Their teeth, stomach acids and short digestive tract bear this out.
Conversely, the teeth structure of a human being is quite different from that of this wild wolf's teeth.
But the dissimilarities between wild meat eaters and humans
do not end there.
The human digestive tract is far longer and more complex,
which is consistent with all herbivorous creatures.
Additionally, the stomach acid and intestinal enzymes of humans
are unable to properly break down and digest flesh containing animal proteins.
Carnivores have very short, simple intestines,
to excrete the masticated and digested meat quickly, often within 2 hours,
which precludes the chance for the meat to have time to putrefy and poison their systems.
In the human being, it takes generally 48 hours for meat to pass through.
Invariably, some of them doesn't pass through at all,
but instead get snugged inside tiny pockets in the colon
putrefying not for hours, but days, months and even years.
The toll of meat intake on all these essential human organs, particularly the pancreas gland,
which is also involved in the digestive process, is enormous.
The pancreas was never designed to break down animal protein or meat.
Instead, the pancreas produces digestive juices
to split the molecules of the correct kind of protein food,
found only in vegetation.
In the digestion of vegetation, the pancreas then conserve its second purpose,
producing pancreatic enzymes, to fight disease.
When meat must be digested,
the pancreas is diverted from its important protective purpose.
If we only eliminate the animal products from our diet,
the odds of getting cancer, diabetes or heart disease
and the Pandora's box of woes that go along with all this will almost vanish.
But the Standard American Diet referred to as "S.A.D" for short
has totally flipped that scientifically verifiable statistic upside down.
Looking under a microscope, it is easy to see
red blood cells floating around free.
But after a fatty meal of any kind,
the red blood cells stick together like rows of pennies.
Now these billions of tiny cells are unable to fold over
to deliver a full measure of vital oxygen to capillaries all over the body, including the brain.
Surprisingly some foods, like legumes,
soybeans and soy products are either deficient in nutrients,
or cause health degeneration, by blocking absorption of nutrients.
Currently, there is popular discussion about
one subject that is of particular interest to women.
Osteoporosis in the U.S. is very widespread.
Painful, long term, handed over, broken bones and disability and all that.
It's caused by milk drinking...
And the doctors give it for supposedly curing osteoporosis,
because supposedly milk has calcium.
Non only that, it's also caused by meat eating.
Because meat in the body, in the digestive process causes acidity, phosphoric acid.
And in this kind of acidity, the body is unable to function.
The body has to maintain homeostasis, has to maintain a very
exact level of alkalinity versus acidity.
But with meat eating and milk drinking
the acid level goes much too high and the body has to balance it up.
What does it use to balance it out? Calcium.
Where is it going to take calcium?
It is not absorbable from milk,
because in the milk with pasteurization and all, the enzymes are missing.
And the body can't use it.
So on the contrary that adds to the problem.
Instead, the body needs to use the calcium and draws it from the bones.
The Gerson juices, particularly the carrot juice in combination with the green juices...
- the carrot juice is very rich in calcium - with the enzymes of the greens and green juices
produces the ability in the body to restore calcium to the bones.
We relieve osteoporosis. No problem.
When orthodox medicine, even with the so called HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
and all those things they use, at best they stop the loss of bone, they don't restore. We restore.
I had canceled my health insurance when I was 34 years old.
And the reason was not that I was very healthy only,
but the reason was that I'm not interested in a kind of hospital
or medical treatment that might be covered by insurance
because it's toxic, it's drugs, it's chemicals,
and I have, you know, more of an idea that they might kill you rather than help me
if I had to go into a hospital.
And over the years, I've saved an average of $ 2,000 a year,
for 45 years, that's roughly 90 thousand dollars.
But that is not the only benefit.
When you eat organic as I did and vegetarian, I was never ill.
It's much cheaper to live this way.
And to live healthy, and I've not even mention, I'm feeling good.
I feel good, I have energy, I'm able to work, I'm able to travel and lecture
and I do all kind of things, even now that I'm almost 82 years old.
I am always telling people, women particularly:
"- Wouldn't it be wonderful if you never had to worry about finding a lump in your breast"?
But if you eat healthy, that's what happens.
As I mentioned, I'm 82, up until this time I've never, ever had a mammogram.
Because I feel very strongly that, living in this manner you don't risk cancer...
Without Charlotte's dog determination and iron will her entire life,
Dr. Gerson's battle to share with the world this unprecedented medical marvel
would have failed.
Even now, in the application of this therapy she's unrelenting.
Today Gerson's name and therapy is known and honored worldwide
by holistic physicians, nutritionists and chiropractors.
Only in the United States is Gerson's name
still forbidden to cross the lips of a physician.
Fortunately for Charlotte, her family upholds her task
and has contributed markedly to radiating information of the Gerson therapy throughout the world.
The Gerson Therapy is unequivocally the Holy Grail to curing cancer
and maladies that now afflict most of mankind.
Charlotte's son Howard is helping educate people around the world
about the Gerson therapy through a tax exempt organization, as well as radio and TV appearances.
He also authors features stories for the bi-monthly "Gerson Healing Newsletter."
Howard has recently completed an historical overview of his grandfather's life and work
and coordinates book signings with Charlotte
like this on the Gerson Institute in Southern California.
- You can cure any disease, or you can just maintain good health.
- Thank you very much, my pleasure, nice to meet you. - Thank you.
Charlotte's daughter Peggy along with husband Giuliano and daughter Etha,
who live in Italy, also follow the Gerson protocol.
Etha, only 14, is already an accomplished violinist
and donates her musical talent to benefits on lecture programs that Peggy puts together in Europe.
Giuliano, a poet, journalist, lecturer and author
recently wrote his own tribute about Dr. Max Gerson's life, set as a novel.
This film would not be complete without a representative recovery
from one of the most deadly cancer of all.
Meet Pat Annie from British Columbia, in Canada.
A successful businesswoman in the shipping industry. She remains extremely busy.
Pat radiates good health and has a deep conviction about certain priorities in her life.
Pat took over her husband shipping business after he passed away of lung cancer some years ago.
Ironically, he developed cancer after Pat had recovered on the Gerson therapy.
But unlike Pat, he refused any kind of treatment from anyone.
In 1986 I was diagnosed with pancreas cancer,
which spread to my liver, gall bladder and spleen.
The doctors told me I had 3 months to live,
to go home, get my finances in order
and prepare to die.
My husband just wouldn't accept it,
I was only 46 years at the time, far too young.
So we kicked around, thinking "oh, well...",
you know, such a blow that you just don't really start thinking for at least a month.
And at that time, I was throwing up mouthfuls of blood
I was on the therapy for 10 days, the bleeding stopped, the pain it stopped,
I came home, get therapy for 2 years.
After three months, my doctors here wondered why I was still living.
He asked me if I would have a CAT scan which I did.
The mass and the cancer was gone.
He said, I don't know what you're doing, we don't want to know what you're doing, just keep doing it.
The doctors at that time they said
I would never live to see my second grandchild, which is now 19 years old.
So we prove them wrong.
I have four grand kids now and a granddaughter.
And I just, last night they took me out, it was my 65th birthday party.
And it was nice to have them all together as a family after
I hope they appreciate me.
At the time I was fighting the pancreas cancer,
we got a call from Michael Landon - you may remember him- He was on "Little House on the Prairie."
He had pancreatic cancer. They gave him three months to live, the same as they did to me.
He wouldn't go down to Mexico, but he started the Gerson therapy at home with his family.
He went on to the Tonight Show
and he looked wonderful, and he said he felt wonderful.
And the doctors, after seeing, I guess, him
on the Tonight Show tried to talk him out of doing the Gerson.
So he went with the doctors and did some procedure that
they thought would work and he wouldn't loose his beautiful long hair.
He phoned us after he did this "treatment" and said,
he knew that was the end, that he should have stayed with the Gerson.
And there is no doubt in my mind that he would be alive today if he had stayed with the Gerson.
Pat is of Hungarian ancestry and read with great
interest and delight about a new Gerson hospital in Budapest, Hungary.
This hospital is not an ordinary hospital. It is a medieval castle.
And is devoted to treating cancer or disease patients with the Gerson therapy exclusively.
Finally, after 75 years and tens of thousands of healed people
the world at last is embracing this answer to cancer.
Other hospitals are opening in Asia and Eastern Europe.
The book of mankind's journey in history
is ... from profound darkness, despair, suffering and indescribable sadness.
But the story does not end there.
And in recorded human history there is also triumph and hope
over seemingly insurmountable societal, individual and environmental illness.
As historians and scientists go back in time,
in the fall of ancient Rome resolving of drinking water from leaded pipes,
to the secrets of the distant past frozen in some of the world's greatest ice fields,
we can see a trace of legacy of other cultures and life forms,
that have arrived and survived on the earth for tens of thousand of years.
Only now and for some perhaps hauntingly the melting ice
sheets revealed through fossilized remains,
but nothing is permanent and life is fragile and beautiful.
Dr. Gerson, who was the first holistic physician in the U.S.,
called his approach to medicine "totality."
He was a health ecologist.
To draw the connection as Dr. Gerson did, of the large scale environmental challenges,
and the viability of life inching essentially
upon what we pour into our cups and place on our plates is so simple
yet profoundly hard to grasp, by modern medicine's modalities.
Quite simply the time is past in which we cannot take for granted
the substances that we swallow.
The purity and soundness of food is taking on a whole new meaning
and with every meal we are either digging our own graves with a silverware,
or ensuring a healthy and productive life
for not only us but our progeny.
The future of our children today is a mystery,
and the future their children is even more so.
Will they see the natural world and the wild creatures therein
only as historical snapshots?
The perfect moment for modern civilization is here.
Like the proverbial canary in the coal mine,
all wild creatures bear testament
to the health of our external metabolism, our natural world, the environment.
For each of us eventually, whether we are ready or not,
some day it will come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected
will be treasured or forgotten or past to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.
So too your hopes, ambitions, plans and to do list will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from,
nor on what side of the tracks you lived at the end.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built.
Not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice
that enriched, empowered and encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew,
but how many will feel a lasting loss when you are gone.
What will matter is not your memories,
but the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered,
by whom and for what.
A life lived significantly is not one of circumstance,
as much as it was of unfailing dedication, of choice.
A life that touched and cured
a dying and suffering humanity, then and now.
When Dr. Gerson's first manuscript for his book was nearly done,
he fell inexplicably ill.
On nursing himself back to health, he found the manuscript missing.
Dr. Gerson released his secretary, who had been caught
stealing his files, and passing them to a rogue physician.
It took Dr. Gerson a full year to reconstruct the manuscript
for his towering classic- "Cancer Therapy, Results of 50 cases."
After publishing his book, Dr. Gerson fell unexplainedly ill again.
Before he died, he tested himself again
which confirmed that he had been poisoned with arsenic.
Had Dr. Gerson died the first time he fell ill from poisoning,
he and his classic book would have been erased forever.
