Dr. Max Gerson Healing the Hopeless

--- Howard Straus

The father of dietary and detoxification therapies for treating chronic disease and promoting good health, Dr. Max Gerson was born in Germany, where he practiced medicine until 1933 when he fled Nazi persecution to the United States.

In Germany, he developed his dietary therapy for treating tuberculosis and attracted the attention of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, curing his wife’s lung tuberculosis.

In the United States, Dr. Gerson turned his attention to the connection between nutrition and cancer, publishing in 1958 his seminal study, A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases.

This life story of Dr. Max Gerson and account of his therapies will take a place beside biographies of such other influential health-care pioneers as Linus Pauling and Albert Schweitzer in the history of medicine.

“I see in Dr. Max Gerson on of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine. Many of his basic ideas have been adopted without having his name connected with them. He has achieved more than seemed possible under adverse conditions. He leaves a legacy which commands attention and that will assure him his due place. Those whom he cured will attest to the truth of his ideas.”

--- Albert Schweitzer

“This biography shold be required reading for every medical student.”


--- Dr. Abram Hoffer, cofounder (with Linus Pauling, Ph.D.)                                        The International Society for Orthomolecular Medicine
