What is Gerson Therapy?
Gerson Therapy is a gentle approach to treating various diseases, including cancer, tuberculosis, and migraines. Gerson Therapy in Mexico promotes a diet and lifestyle designed to detox the body and strengthen the immune system.
The Gerson regimen includes three main components:
- A vegetarian diet – To balance sodium and potassium levels in the body, the Gerson method begins with consuming a strict Gerson diet of organic fruits and vegetables.
- Daily supplements – Vitamin and mineral supplements, including B-12, potassium, and iodine, are included in the Gerson diet in hopes of boosting immunity.
- Detox substances – Coffee and castor oil enemas are used to cleanse the body of a Gerson patient.
At our treatment center in Tijuana, Mexico, a diet similar to Gerson therapy may be recommended as part of your personalized cancer patient plan. However, we traditionally adhere to a more holistic approach to nutrition, as well as overall recovery, and will create a custom dietary plan based on your unique cancer patient needs.
Diet is Just One Component of ITC’s Treatment
At our center, we treat cancer holistically—body and mind. Diet is an important factor, largely influencing your daily energy, mood, and immunity levels, but ITC’s specialized cancer care stretches beyond just what you eat. We pair nutritional recommendations with a customized treatment plan of alternative approaches.
At ITC, we’re highly skilled in a wide range of alternative treatment options, including Graviola IV therapy, HALO therapy, Whole Body and Localized Hyperthermia, and more. We treat all types and stages of cancer, personalizing our offerings to your specific needs. We’ll build a customized plan together, considering your initial diagnosis, treatment and medical history, current condition, top concerns, and more.
ITC’s Multi-Pronged Approach to a Healthy Diet
Cancer treatment can have various effects on your body and appetite, so it’s important to begin with a healthy eating plan designed specifically to support wellness. Whether you have disease similar to Alzheimer’s or lymph node cancer, a nutritious diet fuels you with energy that lasts, helps you rebuild body tissue, and maintains your defenses against infection.
At ITC, we recommend a unique diet of high alkaline and low glycemic index foods. What does that look like?
|We recommend that you fuel your body with…||We recommend that you avoid…|
Our weekly nutrition counseling and appointments begin with these basic pillars and are then tailored to your lifestyle, needs, and resources. We’ll also share suggestions of new foods and local restaurants to try, helping you make discoveries and navigate this lifestyle change in the simplest way possible.
Our expertise doesn’t stop at advanced cancer diet knowledge. Through guided homecare, we’ll also introduce calorie requirements and nutritious recipes to help you stay on track. Discover new foods high in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and liquids with personalized suggestions catered to your taste.
