Gerson Therapy has been evaluated in medical studies and shown to shorten lives, and make the quality of dying patients lives far worse. Don't waste your time or money on this disproven and unpleasant collection of unproven "treatments." Coffee enemas--part of this weird collection--have no therapeutic value. As Dr. Harriet Hall (the SkepDoc) says, coffee tastes better when administered orally. People who follow the Gerson Therapy live shorter and more unpleasant lives, downing huge amounts of pills that have no value whatever. It's hard to accept that our lives must end, but spending money on this horrible collection of malpractice makes it even worse. This book can harm you. Don't buy into it's lack of logic and evidence.
