    Is a non-toxic, all-natural lifestyle just a fad?

    Gerson therapy takes being a vegan to a whole new level by restricting animal products, chemicals and processed foods from all parts of your life. Although no significant research has been done, many people claim this lifestyle can cure even the most advanced stages of degenerative diseases, like cancer and multiple sclerosis. Do you think this is merely "quack" therapy, or are they onto something?

    I personally believe that, while expensive and challenging to transition into, this lifestyle is something all humans should strive for. There's extensive evidence that shows pesticides, processed foods, animal hormones and antibiotics, and toxic household chemicals are extremely damaging to our bodies. The only way to avoid it is to eat an all-natural, plant-based diet of mostly organic, uncooked fruits and vegetables.

    I know I am late on answering this question but I just saw it and wanted to share my experience and opinion. I consider myself to be someone who is transitioning into a more natural lifestyle. What prompted this was a gluten intolerance which has made me re-examine everything I consume. In addition to re-examining the things I ate and products I used, I started to notice allergic/sensitivity reactions to more products like make up. This has forced me to seek out natural products. I feel like my body/health is forcing me towards a natural lifestyle by having these types of negative reactions to some common and seemingly benign(but toxic) everyday(mainstream) products. I have first hand experience with seeing a change in my health after switching certain products and limiting processed food and adding more whole foods. Although I did not have a chronic disease I have improved tremendously.

    I don't think its "quack" therapy. Its simple...you are what you eat and anything you put on your skin can ened up in your bloodstream. I think everyone can benefit from reducing their exposure to the daily toxins we are bombarded with however just because a product is natural doesn't mean its safe. So being vigilant and knowledgable about products and food is also important aspect about transitioning to a more natural lifestyle. I don't think going natural can cure any disease but I think it can drastically help the symptoms and progression of the disease. Great question!
