One of our planned projects is to create a series of permaculture "Gerson Gardens" specifically to grow produce for those fighting cancer nutritionally.
Does anyone have direct contact info for these folks? I'll do an article on them and give them a push, but I'd rather have a little live interview material instead of just pulling all the info from their Kickstarter.
The sad thing is that Gerson has THOUSANDS of documented successes over DECADES of people using food as the cure, yet the Allopathic community wants to say it is not a viable methodology. -- R. Holman
In August 2012 I was diagnosed with state 1 early detected breast cancer. After much research of my own I found the Gerson Therapy, studied as much as I could. I refused radiation and the 5 year protocol drug Tamoxofin, had a full double mastectomy where they found another tumor undetected by the original mammogram and sonogram. Never felt better in my life. That was my choice. Had I known about Gerson BEFORE the diagnosis and the money and resources to move to Mexico where the current clinic is, I would have. I believe in this with my whole being. Trying to talk with an Oncologist about any of this goes on deaf ears and they change the subject. I so hope they can continue to grow and spread the word. They also have a FB page. Well done Paul for spreadin the good works.

In addition to the evidence for alternative therapies, including whole clean diet, being online for all to see and appreciate, I'd like to see a cheap, natural detection method become available..... and with results also posted online.

but to tell people they need to "eat healthy to be healthy"
without giving them the ability to do so
isn't a worthwhile endeavor IMHO
I think food is very important to health
so instead of looking down on these people, we should help them with options
rather than telling them to eat more greens.

Someone was mentioning that this looks like a promo for the gersen work.
Turns out that cancer is really diverse, very hard to treat, and there is no simple answer, no matter how appealing "alternatives" may be marketed as.
Really good information on the "Gerson Method" here: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/about-cancer/treatment/complementary-alternative/therapies/gerson-therapy
I am not aware that the Gersons, Sarah or Jennifer have EVER suggested anything less. (I'll assume that's not what you meant to imply.)
Cancer is a serious illness. Always consult your doctor.
