Alternative Cancer Treatment : Gerson Therapy
The Gerson Therapy
Alternative cancer treatment : Gerson Therapy
I came across an unpretentious little booklet titled “Close to nature, far away from death”. Below the title : “ A personal experience in natural healing as a way to cure cancer”. It is about an alternative cancer treatment. This alternative cancer treatment is called “The Gerson Therapy”. The author of this booklet is a Thai Buddhist monk by the name of Kittiyano Bhikkhu. He lives in Southern Thailand; to the south is Malaysia. It is just a few hours’ drive north across the Thai/Malaysia border from where I live. This in a way brought the monk’s message closer to me. So I started reading it. I shall provide the link to the PDF file for this booklet at the end of this article.
By the way, as you would have known, “The Gerson Therapy” was developed by a German doctor, Max Gerson (1881-1959). He experimented with his therapy in 1928 when a woman cancer patient asked him to treat her. With his diet and detoxification program, the woman responded positively; and from then on the whole world came to know of this alternative cancer treatment called “The Gerson Therapy”. With the advent of the internet, there is no stopping of the worldwide dissemination of this piece of life-saving information. I shall provide the relevant links to the websites of “The Gerson Therapy” at the end of this article.
Very briefly, this Gerson therapy involves a regimented program of nutritious diet, detoxification, oxygen therapy, medication, behavior and lifestyle change, and psychological motivation, and environmental change.
Right now let’s take a look at what this Thai Buddhist monk has to share. Please read on.

Alternative cancer treatment : The little booklet.
It is most fascinating that the doctor who treated this monk was once an advanced stage cancer patient himself, but was cured by the Gerson therapy! His name is Dr. Samran Arbsuwan. To add authenticity and credence to the monk’s personal testimony, Dr. Samran wrote a “Forward” for the book. He has this advice, which I quote:
“As a medical doctor as well as a cancer patient once myself, I would like to share my experience and my understanding of cancer with others. I wish that no one would fall sick with cancer. This terrible painful disease brings to the patient and his/her family a feeling of hopelessness that cancer is terminal and a fearful sense that death is looming. Cancer is not necessarily terminal. While modern medicine has yet to find a cure for cancer, I want all to realize this and in every possible way to maintain good health and to avoid developing the disease. For those who are now living with cancer, do not feel frightened, do not be saddened, do not blame anyone, do not lose your wits, instead be wise, sensibly alert and mindful. Seek out information on cancer treatment that is as scientific and reasonable as possible. Do not accept only information from modern medical doctors who usually suggest surgery, radiation, and chemical therapy. These treatments could worsen the body condition. There are other methods of remedy that are widely available. Somehow the public at large does not seem to be aware of this alternative treatment.”
(Dr. Samran Arbsuwan : 21 December 2007)
Alternative cancer treatment : A Thai Buddhist monk’s personal testimony
Kittiyano Bhikkhu ( “Bhikkhu” means monk) was diagnosed to have skin cancer known as malignant melanoma, and the cancer had spread through the lymph glands to several other organs including the liver. It was at a terminally advanced stage. This was on September 3, 2007. The doctors as usual recommended surgery, which had only an 8% chance of recovery! Good fortune came to him when very timely, he received through the post, a book written by a doctor who was cured of advanced liver cancer by Dr. Samran himself using the Gerson Therapy. This led Kittiyano Bhikkhu to contact Dr. Samran and was advised by the good doctor to commence treatment immediately. The treatment was at the Be Mes Clinic in Kaoyai National Park, Nakorn Ratchasrima, which is somewhere northeast of Bangkok, Thailand. The treatment started on 20 September 2007.
Within a spate of only 3 months, the cancer was reduced by 80%! Very briefly, the therapy treatment involved the following:
- Megadose injection of organopeptide (from organs of offsprings of animals)
- Oxidation injection
- Chelation and Glutathione injection (to remove poisonous heavy metals and toxins from the bloodstream)
- Medication (vitamins and tablets)
- Fruit and vegetable juice
- Special diet
- Herbal sauna
- Detoxification using coffee and castor oil
- Breathing exercise
- Body and mind equanimity
- Confidence, motivation, and healthy environment
- A complete change to wholesome lifestyle

Alternative cancer treatment : Another surviving Gerson Therapy patient
This is my later addition to this article. I came upon this fantastic and positive infromation while surfing the internet. This is the personal testimony of a Chinese Malaysian cancer survivor. He has been updating his progress against stage 4 kidney cancer in his blog. His name is C T Chang and his blog is Upekha.blogspot.com.
Please read his encouraging and courageous journey on his cancer healing adventure.
CT Chang has taken unprecedented steps to heal himself. Below is his testimony:
[A lot of work has been put in including:
- I took the most important decision of my life by not accepting my doctor's recommended conventional treatment and instead went for Gerson therapy.
- Become a vegan overnight on a very strict diet of no oil, no sugar, no salt, no dairy products, no soy products and low protein diet to rebuild the body.
- Drink 10-13 juices a day, 365 days a year.
- Performed more than 2,000 coffee enemas to detoxify my body.
- Take in daily more than 100 tablets consisting of supplements, herbs and medications including daily self-administered liver+B12 injections to rebuild the immune system.
- Hire and work with a hypnotherapist to re-frame my mind.
- Spent countless months to identify, understand and release toxic emotions trapped in the body. This is still work in progress.
- Spiritual therapy.
- Strong support and encouragement from family, friends and readers like you to keep me going and
- Money from my savings to fund the above therapy.
I have used about RM150K (US$50K) including RM55K (US$18K) for treatment in Gerson Clinic, Mexico for the past two years. I do not come from a rich family and depended on my own savings and some contributions from my family and friends but the bulk of treatment comes from my own savings.]
A Sad Update : Tuesday, September 11, 2012
I am very sad to announce that CT Chang leaves this world today, exactly three full years to the day, after being diagnosed with cancer. You are invited to read my article as a tribute to CT Chang: CLICK HERE
Alternative cancer treatment : What is the message?
Enough said. What is the message then?
- Live a wholesome lifestyle to maintain a healthy life.
- Cancer is not a death sentence, it’s only a 6-letter word.
- Big Brother mainstream treatments have both success and failure cases.
- Alternative cancer treatments also have both success and failure cases.
- Does this mean we should reject alternative treatment?
- Does this mean we should only accept conventional mainstream treatments?
- YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF TREATMENT FOR CANCER!
However, if anyone is on conventional cancer treatment, this article by another Hubpages writer is worth reading: "Ten Things I Wish My Doctor Told Me About Chemotherapy".
