Second video I've seen on Gerson which is an hour long sales pitch in passive agressive doumentary style. I beleive the overall idea but the criticisms about no evidence are still unanswered. Alot of "testimonials" are given though. There is never a "recipe" of what to eat unless I missed it. I do agree with their focus on diet and avoiding toxins.

Read up on the Gerson Therapy (e.g. Wikipedia, the info is interesting) and watch this with a skeptic's mind. I think eating mainly fruits and vegetables is the main part of this cure. Is it quackery or cure? Two sides tell two different stories, and it is up to you to decide. I wonder if the portal vein of the descending colon that is mentioned may be assisted to improve with massage therapy.

I recommend this documentary to everyone! Just amazing what we can do when we take control of our health and are no longer at the mercy of the medical establishment.

a must-see documentary -- we have all watched helplessly as someone we care about goes through the medical maze to find there is no real cure in modern western medicine just a stream of endless drugs with nasty side effects -- we need more like this film that offers simple solutions that have been hidden from the public - watch this film and share it with everyone you know
