    The Gerson Supplements

    October 15, 2021 5 min read

    The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements. With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent     ability to heal   itself – with no harmful side effects. This a powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart  disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. Dr. Max Gerson developed the       Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating       migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as       skin tuberculosis, diabetes and, most   famously, cancer.

    In the numerous available supplements in the market today, there are only some approved and highly suggested supplements on Gerson Treatment. Here are as follow.

    1. Lugol’s Solution or Lugol’s iodine – named after French physicist Jean Guillaume Auguste Lugol and universally known disinfectant for water, skin wound and infection. The solution is a mix of elemental iodine and potassium iodine, first made in 1829. It is also known as aqueous iodineand strong iodine solution. Iodine is an element that is needed for the production of thyroid hormone which is responsible for metabolism and it is essential for every organ and all tissues in the human body.The medicinal effect of iodine Improves brain function
      Prevents cancer
      Protects against heart disease
      Natural antibiotic and antioxidant
      Acts against parasites
      Excellent disinfectant
      Balances hormones
      Shrinks cysts on ovaries and breasts
    2. Thyroid Hormone Supplement– It imitates the function of the thyroid glands in the body. The function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine, found in many foods, and convert it into thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid cells are the only cells in the body which can absorb iodine. These cells combine iodine and the amino acid tyrosineto make T3 and T4. T3 and T4 are then released into the blood stream and are transported throughout the body where they control metabolism (conversion of oxygen and calories to energy). In general, people suffering from chronic degenerative diseases suffer from altered or slow metabolic function and is the main reason why integrative doctor prescribe this supplement.
    3. Potassium Compound– Potassium compound salts is intended to be taken as a solution and is made from 33% each of potassium acetate, potassium monophosphate, and potassium gluconate, diluted in 1 liter of distilled water and stored to amber brown bottle. Typical dosage varies from 1 to 4 teaspoonfuls 10 times a day of the prepared solution (total 3.5 to 14 grams of potassium daily). They are added to orange, apple-carrot, or green leaf juices, but not to pure carrot juice. The primary benefit of potassium compound salts is to treat the tissue damage syndrome (TDS) which is found in all cancer. According to Gerson Therapy, Potassium compound solution helps relieve spasms by supplying potassium to the depleted intestinal tract. Potassium is the chief cation of intracellular fluid, and many of its salts are used as electrolyte replenishers and antihypokalemics. Many degenerative diseases suffer the loss of potassium ions in the cells, and the invasion of sodium ions along with water into the cells. This brings on edema, loss of electrical potentials in the cells, improper enzyme formation, reduced cell oxidation, and other cell malfunctions. The building of almost all enzymes by the cells requires potassium as a catalyst.USES:1) Potassium can be added to your juices as a nutritional supplement. It aids in balancing the electrolytes and minerals.
      Also, Dr. Gerson found that the basic problem in all chronic degenerative diseases is the loss of potassium from, and the penetration of sodium into the cells, now known as the tissue damage syndrome. The average diet in most countries, especially the developed world, contains far too much salt, which eventually causes the breakdown of the healthy balance within the body. The healthy cell is high in Potassium and low in Sodium and unhealthy cell is high in Sodium and low in Potassium.2) Potassium can be added to your coffee enema solutions, if you experience stomach cramping during coffee enemas, or are having a difficult time holding the coffee enema in.  Sometimes the colon will have mild spasms when the enema coffee goes in. Adding potassium to your coffee enema, helps soothe the colon and quiet it down, enabling you to hold the enema coffee in longer.
    4. Pancreatic Enzymes Univase Forte- use as part of Gerson protocol to digest the tumor meat. It is broken down inti two form Food enzymes and proteolytic (protein digesting enzymes). Several researchers including Dr. John Beard, Dr. Ernst Krebs, Jr and Dr. Dean Burke found that the cancer cell is coated with a protein lining and that it is this protein lining that prevents the body’s normal defenses from getting to the cancer cell. They found that, if you can dissolve the protein lining from around the cancer cell, the body’s normal defenses, the leukocytes (white blood cells) will destroy the cancer cell. Enzyme therapy as an alternative / complimentary cancer treatment reverses the tumor from malignant to benign, by inducing apoptosis in tumor cells, by breaking down the tumor, by eliminating toxins and cancer cells, by restoring body functions, by strengthening the body and the immune system, by reversing the internal environment for the conditions (anaerobic, acidic pH) favorable to cancer cells to a healthy environment (aerobic, pH slightly alkaline). To win with cancer we have to first completely eliminate the cancer part of the tumor (s) the to change the internal environment in which cancer happens and grows and strengthen the cancer defense mechanism so that it will detect and destroy any mutated cell, that way the cancer does not come back.
    5. Desiccated Liver Gland– derived from grass feed beef liver. Desiccated means dry, therefore it is dried liver beef. There are numerous benefits of taking this supplement, first is excellent source of Co Enzyme Q10 which help the body to fight against cancer mainly because people who are suffering from cancer commonly also have low levels of Coenzyme Q10 in their body. Also, Co Q10 improves sexual function, prevent muscle loss, migraine, and hearing loss. Second, it is a perfect source of various minerals and B vitamins that helps the body to achieve optimum level of function and anti-oxidant. Lastly, it is a wonderful source of protein and vitamin A. Protein is the second source of glucose needed for the maintenance of body tissue, including development and repair, involves in different chemical reactions and creation of hormones. On the other hand, Vitamin A is Anti-oxidant that protects cells from damage caused by substances called free radicals.Warning in taking Desiccated Liver: This desiccated beef liver is not designed for pregnant women or breastfeeding women and also people who need blood transfusion. The lack of scientific evidence of this powder in pregnant women is one of the reasons. So, pregnant women are not suggested to consume it.Make sure that you’re not buying desiccated beef liver that extracted from the animals that treated with antibiotics because it might cause you some problems related to your health when you’re consuming it in a very high dose.
    6. Selenium- selenium role in fighting different chronic degenerative illnesses had been known for many decades. Researchers have found that selenium favorably modulates gene expression to suppress a protein involved in tumor onset, growth, and metastasis. Sodium selenite, L-selenomethionine, and selenium-methyl L-selenocysteine are the three form which important for cancer treatment and prevention. These three for have differ on the way they help the body to fight cancer but complement each other.
    7. Niacin or Vit B3– it play vital role is in glycolysis (production of cell energy from carbohydrate and glucose) by synthesis of fatty acids and acts as part of two coenzymes, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), that are involved in more than 50 different metabolic reactions in the human species. It helps to metabolize some drugs and toxic waste product. Also, it is important precursor for the coenzymes that supply energy to body cells.Niacin Flush: Redness appearance due to vasodilation of capillaries. It signify niacin toxicity but it not harmful and appears after taking high dosage of niacin and will dis appear 30 minutes to 1 hour.
