(Note: 6/6/2014 I am no longer doing the Gerson Therapy however I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a natural alternative to medicine).
As a result of healing from bulimia and anorexia for seventeen years, I sought many nutritional programs on the road to recovery. The Gerson Therapy came when I was at my wits-end with a swollen liver and kidneys. After I felt God leading me to this radical yet simplistic approach to eating and health, I was set completely free of my pain within a month.
All recipes are taken straight from the powerful book I recommend, Healing The Gerson Way (Second Ed.) Thank you to The Gerson Institute and Charlotte Gerson for whom without none of this revolutionary healing would be possible.
Please read Healing The Gerson Way for more information. Knowledge is power! I use one serving of each ingredient and all are certified organic.
Tomato and Zucchini Salad
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
(Please Note: For the yogurt I use a Goats Milk yogurt).
Slice the green onion and add. Finely grate the raw beet (or chop cooked beet into chunks) and mix into the salad. Lay on a bed of lettuce. Pour over dressing.
Tangy Tomato Soup
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
1 lb. tomatoes
1 stick celery
1 red bell pepper
little orange juice
Chop tomatoes/carrot/celery and onion. Seed pepper and chop. Put all into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil; turn down the heat and simmer until vegetables are tender. Puree (with electric blender or food mill). Add the orange juice. Reheat gently. Add a swirl of yogurt before serving.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Baked potatoes should be thoroughly washed; not scraped or peeled. Bake in low oven at 300°F (149°C) for 2 or 2-1/2 hours or; alternatively bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour at 350°F (177°C).
Glazed Carrots with Herbs and Lemon
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
1 lb. carrots
1 tsp. sugar
a little water
1 tsp.lemon juice
Gently cool the carrots whole. When beginning to soften remove from pan and cut into 2-inch sticks. Return to the saucepan with the sugar and a little water. Heat until the sugar is dissolved; the water has been absorbed and the carrots are cooked. Add the lemon juice and herbs and heat for an additional two minutes. Place on a warm serving dish and serve immediately.
So there we have our beautiful dinner of healing foods straight from the Gerson Therapy.
