The Gerson Therapy Cure For Cancer?

Information on this treatment can be found on the Gerson Therapy Web site. I actually found it a great read, watched a 90 minute video found on Netflix about the founder of this Miracle Dr. Max Gerson and testimonies of many patients who lives were changed as a result. In My mind the question is Why wouldn’t you want to see a persons life made free, Once a person is diagnosed with this disease what medication are you giving them, is it one to increase the process because it certainly isn’t one to heal them. How can the doctor say how long a person has to live but don't have the answer to their healing. Why would this disease baffle our countries for years when scientist can discover things beyond the human mind, It’s amazing that this therapy has been hidden for years and even if it does not save all saving some peoples lives is worth it, God added years onto Nebuchadnezzar life why not ours. I don’t know if its fully effective but there are many testimonies that say it’s a cure for all types of cancer and other disease. It promotes healthy living so go through the website and see if you can find some natural ways to heal those things that ail you. As A family member of a parent who passed away from cancer I thought it of the upmost importance to at least share this information that has been hidden for years, I have to wonder if my mother would still be here today if we had this information. My inward search brings me to this conclusion that this is a spirit in the earth that has to be uprooted by the power of God through Jesus Blood, I'm not talking about just a prayer but casting this demonic force into the abyss….the reason I call it a spirit is because if God created all things for us out the earth good, how can anything come out the earth be that harmful for us. So whats harmful is man made and if man made it there must be a cure. Deliverance is not prayer. You command the demons to go in Jesus' Name. He will not cast the demons out. He has given us that authority and He expects us to use it. What Do You Think!!!!!


The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements. With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging side effects. This a powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes and, most famously, cancer.Learn more

about Dr. Max Gerson The Gerson Therapy‘s all-encompassing nature sets it apart from most other treatment methods. The Gerson Therapy effectively treats a wide range of different ailments because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the Gerson Therapy treats the causes of most degenerative diseases: toxicity and nutritional deficiency. An abundance of nutrients from copious amounts of fresh, organic juices are consumed every day, providing your body with a superdose of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. These substances then break down diseased tissue in the body, while coffee enemas aid

Fresh pressed juice from raw foods provides the easiest and most effective way of providing high quality nutrition. By juicing, patients can take in the nutrients and enzymes from nearly 15 pounds of produce every day, in a manner that is easy to digest and absorb. Every day, a typical patient on the Gerson Therapy for cancer consumes up to thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot/apple and green-leaf juices. These juices are prepared hourly from fresh, raw, organic fruits and vegetables, using a two-step juicer or amasticating juicer used with a separate hydraulic press.

How the Therapy

Gerson Works

The Gerson Therapy regenerates the body to health, supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from about 15- 20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. Most is used to make fresh raw juice, up to one glass every hour, up to 13 times per day. Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as oxygen deficiency in the blood contributes to many degenerative diseases. The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins. Degenerative diseases render the body increasingly unable to excrete waste materials adequately, commonly resulting in liver and kidney failure. The Gerson Therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body’s essential defenses – enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, highquality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and

PRAYER We must understand what forces we fight against in our society and system daily. Lots of things can be avoided if we understand what the problem is. Know that god has already given us power over all the powers of the enemy, but what you call out is what comes out. We don't always have to be defeated with man made diseases. The power of life and death lie in the tongue and the tough is sharper than a two edge sword,, therefore we have to believe that these spirits exist in the earth and have been among us for centuries . Here is a Prayer we can pray and lets see how many of us would dare to call this spirit to be released from the earth and be successful. Now is the time for everyone to be a professional prayer warrior. Will you fight with us so that this demonic force lose its power over any of us and anymore of our loved ones.

A PRAYER Satan, we come against all powers, principalities, evil forces in this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. We come against all demons inside or outside of anyone present, over this city, state, nation and world, in Hell or out of Hell. The Bible says, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. We intend to exercise that power to set ourselves free. Satan, we come against you by the power and blood of Jesus Christ, by the Word of God, by the name of Jesus, by the authority of the believer, in the unity of our spirits. Satan, we tell you that we sit in heavenly places with our Christ Jesus. We are over you, your fallen angels, your demons and all forces of evil. We command you to line up in rank and file and order, and come out quickly. We bind every power that you have and loose ourselves from you in the name of Jesus. Lord Jesus Christ, we ask that you would send the gifts of the Holy Spirit as needed to minister to the needs of the people and to accomplish what you want done here today. We are careful to give you all the glory, honor, praise and credit for everything that is said or done. We ask all these things in the blessed name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Master and Savior. And we take authority over Satan according to the whole Word of God. For it's in Jesus name we pray. Amen!"

IF WE TRULY BELIEVE AND GOD IS TRULY REAL THEN WHY WOULDN'T THIS WORK ALONG WITH THE THERAPHY.

My name is Lucious and I'm a recovering Alcoholic and crack cocaine addict. Like many recovering alcoholics and addicts, I too have horror stories of drinking and doing things which I am not proud of and would never have done in a sober state of mind. I too have spent time in correctional facilities as a result of my drinking. Fortunately, I met a doctor whose compassion and conviction persuaded me to go to in-patient rehab here in New York. After reading the materials, going to meetings and workshops I realized that I was an alcoholic and an addict. But, for me being clean and sober was and is not enough. The program promised a life " serene"“happy, joyous and free”, that’s what I wanted, want and maintain. WATCH MAN ON THE WALL

.When

reading the word of God we read by his stripes we are healed, and we look at it in terms of healing of our natural diseases, but I believe it had to do with the healing of both natural and spiritual disease We must have our spirits healed in order to return to our original purpose in God’s plan for man, God’s creed for man was to develop an intimate relationship with him so that he could father them in ways they never wanted for anything but to live peacefully and forever, death would never have entered in if we had just obeyed Him.

Hatred is a disease and deadly if you catch it . It is spread through ignorance and fear. People hate what they fear and they hate and fear the unknown.

Intimacy comes from having fellowship with the father, but we changed it to soulfulness losing the true gift of being created in His likeness, man calls it love God calls it eternal life.

LOOKING AT HATE WHY IS A NATION OF PEOPLE SO HATED (BLACK PEOPLE)

resists the change necessary to gain new knowledge. It is easier to close the mind than to open it unfortunately. To be aware is to be alive so you must ask yourself why do you hate such a great nation of people, organizations or groups.

research is the gifting or the anointing God placed upon his prophetic covenant and inheritance.

"The biggest reason for prejudice is fear and fear is produced by the Hate is spread physically, unknown. Well I guess that's a emotionally, mentally and question White folks would have to spiritually. Hate can be so What makes you hate? There has to answer.

QUESTION


“S

o in a nutshell Blacks are caught up in this catch 22 situation of being a predefined set of people who are destined to be failures and if one or a significant amount of Blacks do not conform to this, the theory might become invalidated and White folks would loose most or all of their White privilege of being at the top of the so called evolution ladder. So where has the Western media placed Blacks, in a situation where a Black individual has to fight viciously to break that prejudicial barrier among other races (as we are first seen to be criminals, rapists, thieves and what have you) or have to be extremely good to compete with mediocre or dull White folks the lowest of them all otherwise known as their "thrash" who will only get by courtesy of White privilege in a working environment. And the so called evolution theory. If you constantly see yourself as a victim, then there is a likelihood you're going to retaliate in one way or another. That just reinforces the presence of inequality, because by saying that you're hated, you're affirming that others see you as less equal to them. With God on our side, a day will come when everyone shall be regarded not by their skin color, but by the content of their character and intellect. We are slowly getting there and a set of people are feeling very threatened about loosing their privilege to this and without this sense of belonging it is difficult to overcome economic hardship. Most immigrants band together and support their own economy. Look at the Jews, or the Chinese. They band together to overcome their obstacles. So it would seem that the color of prejudice is monetary.

Mass of people in the music industry what is promoted is violence. Nothing sells more then Sex, Money, Murder. This is our way of life in most people who live the everyday life will not look at this and say well its not my problem and when they find out that a relative or someone who they care about gets hurt then the mind frame starts to ask why we have the wrong people controlling our country.

Here comes that healing cupful of truth. Bitter to some, but sweet to 'the true'. So, pass the cup, after you have drank the word down. And never again let evil hold the originals down.

Or, going on a totally different approach, maybe the color black has powerful, emotional triggers that offend people on a much more subtle level than we realize. Phrases like "a black period in history", or "in a dark mood"... may carry more influence than we realize.

you are the drum, and we are the drum.

Eat Cheap By Lisa Turner How to feed your family on just $75 a week Good food is pricey, and it’s not getting any cheaper. But you can scrimp on food without compromising health. Follow these simple rules and feed your family well, for less: 1. Plan ahead. If you buy on impulse, you’ll always spend more than you expected. Instead, craft a menu for seven day’s worth of meals, then create a shopping list from that. And don’t forget snacks and beverages, which can add up fast. Make your shopping list detailed, but keep it flexible enough to account for deals. Instead of “apples, oranges, and bananas,” for instance, just list “fruit,” then see what’s on sale at the market. 2. Be a clipper. You can save a lot more money than you think by clipping coupons. Go through circulars in the papers, and stash coupons in a large envelope that you can take to the store. Then plan your meals around what’s on sale. You can also do an online search for the items you purchase most often. Also try: Mambo Sprouts (mambosprouts.com), an online newsletter and coupon service that specializes in natural products. 3. Go vegan. Animal protein is expensive on any budget, and most of us eat too much of it anyway. At least two nights a week (or more), make your meals meat-free. Veggie burgers are pricey, but organic beans, lentils, and legumes are inexpensive, fiber-rich sources of protein. When you do eat meat, think of it as an addition to meals, rather than the center of the plate— add it to stews, casseroles, or stir-fries that emphasize vegetables. 4. Shop around. You can save substantial amounts by shopping at more than one store. One place may have the cheapest organic produce, while another offers great deals on packaged goods. So get to know where the deals are, and watch the savings add up. Start with the store that has the best prices on the items you purchase most frequently, and then supplement as needed with trips elsewhere. 5. Love leftovers. Avoid waste by planning menus around repurposing food. For example, a roasted chicken might become chicken salad the next day. When you make a soup, casserole, or other one-dish meal, freeze extras for lastminute meals (cheaper than takeout) and cost-saving brown-bag lunches. 6. Buy in bulk. Bulk beans, grains, nuts, seeds, and other items are cheaper than packaged options. Also, skip single-serving items. Buy larger containers, and portion off smaller servings. And don’t forget that buying in bulk isn’t limited to packaged goods. If you see a great deal on blueberries, buy them and freeze them for later use. 7. Keep it simple. Stick to the basics—inexpensive proteins (lean meat, beans, chicken thighs); less pricey produce (carrots, broccoli, bananas, apples); and bulk grains. Choose lower-priced nuts and seeds, such as sunflower or pumpkin seeds. And skip bottled drinks and juice boxes in favor of pitchers of iced hibiscus or green tea. Or stick to water. It’s better for you anyway. Lisa Turner is a certified food psychology coach, nutritional healer, intuitive eating consultant, and author.

A JORYMAN’S JOURNEY TO AFRICA

Life worth Exploring. For most of us, going to Africa was like fulfilling a dream it was a source of inspiration and great national pride that gave us incredible positive memories of the beauty and richness of our homeland.


DISPENSATION OF HOPE Each individual of God’s elect is unconditionally chosen, redeemed and regenerated to a specific hope. We are the future our hope has already been established .


A Joryman Journey to Africa It was going to be another typical summer for me Atone Joryman; as a high school student, play football, be with my friends and go to Young Life. What is Young Life? It is an international non-profit Christian ministry, where every adolescent will have the opportunity to meet Jesus Christ, follow Him, and helping them grow in their faith. For me Young Life is a safe place to go whenever I need to get away from the pressures of being a teenager. Their programs are custom made for kids throughout their adolescent years. Young Life is the name of our organization and is also the term used for their program with high school students. They call their middle school program WyldLife. The initiative for college and university students is called Young Life College. In this organization for every talented Young Life staff person there is a team of dedicated leaders (adults and parents) who works directly with teenagers to share the scriptures of the Bible and explain how God loves us. These leaders share their stories and participants share theirs back. Although Young Life’s goal is to spread the word of God, it is not the only thing that it does. Young Life is also all about fun. From club and camp to Campaigners and other activities, teenagers will have blast laughing, trying new things and being with their friends. Incredible things happen for many of us who participate for example a dream of a lifetime unfolding. With this turning into my third year as a member of Young Life, I was planning going to camp in Michigan. Then my leader Kaleah came to me and 7 other teenagers with the greatest opportunity, to become apart of a work crew for a camp in Malawi, Africa. My first thought was this is a joke. I was so accustomed to being in America or to be more specific the city of Chicago but I never thought of leaving the continent. I told myself you may never get this opportunity again to travel with friends to the continent of Africa so I took this opportunity. My challenge was I had to raise 1,000 dollars. This was a difficult task for me because I do not enjoy asking others for money, and possibly taking rejection afterwards. Then I dropped the ego and begin to raise the the money through small donations and fundraisers. Knowing that I was now going to Africa alongside with 11 other significant people. This word Africa did not shout out loud enough to me. I would not say that I was extremely excited, I just simply wanted so see Africa for myself. I didn’t know what to expect so many images and visions begin popping in my head, like thoughts the many stereotypes I would see


on the television and hear from my friends, made me want to just hop on the plane right away to see what was true or false . Before we flew the friendly skies our crew leader Kaleah hosted several meetings on how to prepare for our journey by giving us history and a summary on what to expect and how to respect African culture. Something Kaleah really wanted us all to focus on was to take something that we learned from Africa and God when returning home. I really took this into a serious thought especially when it came to religion. My reason being that I’m in a battle between two religions, where my mothers Christian and father is Muslim. I have learned a mixture of the two religions, and I respect both practices. But there are debates and faults being said on both sides towards the other, because they are not the same religion. So, my personal goal on this trip was to get a hint of what was the right direction. It’s July 22nd and we are boarding our flights to Malawi, officially the Republic of Malawi, is a landlocked country in southeast Africa that was formerly known as Nyasaland. It is bordered by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast, and Mozambique on the east, south and west.

After two flights I started writing in the journal that my leader wanted for everyone to record their memories in. We were going to be writing for 12 days about our destinations and experiences, the full length of the trip from beginning to end. By the time we got to Ethiopia I was exhausted from the long hours of flying, sadly I realized we had two more flights and a 5 hour bus ride to go. In total it was a little more than a day of journeying. When we were packed on the small bus and driving in Blantyre I sat watching this completely different world, trying to suck in that I was in Africa. Looking at the passing mountains and villages I was amazed how much Malawians looked alike compared to African Americans, to me they were just Americans with an accent in a different setting. Initially I was in a state of shock seeing everything ; but that change quickly after greeting and meeting people I felt really comfortable. When we were actually at the campsite this was even more to take in. We were all tired, late to the camp and it was also dark. Yet, the Malawians were welcoming us with so much energy, I happily woke up. Since we were already late Young Life for the campers had already started, and it was a lot of powerful yelling and happy voices. This was the first night where work would start for our crew, (the work crew are maturing Christians with a teachable spirit, a servant attitude and a willingness to do the job. )so as we tagged along exploring what our work would be like we were having a good time. Later that night around 11p.m. was the obstacle course, something Young Life usually does to welcome the campers. It was a great night, the workers and the campers went to sleep happy in my eyes.


We were working about 8 days, very little was stressful and most of it I could not believe my time. Things gotten really routine since we repeated the same things for 3 groups of campers. One set were from Blantyre, the second from Zomba and lastly the group from Lilongwe. Now things started hitting me when the first group were there. When I’d hear the Malawian campers chants when they were working together in the games or when they were just really hyper, because they know how to have a good time. Which was something that made me jealous of them. It should be weird since I’m from the U.S. and we supposedly have more to live for than Africa. But when I could see how friendly, grateful and energetic many of the Malawians were I thought why can’t everyone in Chicago be this way, it would easily be a better city to be in. And it wasn’t even just the people in camp. I would interact with people around Blantyre that were on the same level. My recent trip to Malawi was a nonstop whirlwind of activity –seeing, learning, talking, doing, feeling… Even though I ran into many smiling faces, there was not much to smile about. The water was not clean, the villagers did not have much, and the workers for the camp had some dramatic stories

to tell that really got to me. I thought I had a lot to be stressed about but compared to Africa there is nothing to boast about. Me having Alopecia I get random patches of hair falling out of my hair, but I have an ointment that helps it come back. Then I saw this one camper from Zomba have patches all over his head, this had me thinking if he had Alopecia too, and he could not treat it because he could not afford it or just didn’t have access. It could have been anything, I knew I would feel terrible walking around like that with people staring. Although this guy was laughing and dancing more than I was. Again how could these people be so happy? Then I went to the many Young Life clubs and saw how the speaker spoke about God and how the audience responded. Even though it was routine it did not get old. I thought, maybe this is how they can continue their lives by filling it as a Christian. And that’s why when we started heading back home I wanted to make a response to Kaleah’s request, and that is to be more joyful with my life and make Jesus Christ to focus. I know I am still young, I don’t have it all figured out and I will make mistakes. There is so much more to experience in life and to learn from and I will try to do it with Jesus. There's a revolutionary love that's unfolding here, transforming lives both across Africa and at home. Together we are becoming one in spirit and one in purpose, united as a family that spans color, cultures and continents


Hi there! I'm Danyelle and I am a 21 year old lover of all things natural hair! Since transitioning to natural, I've learned not only to love and embrace my natural hair, but most importantly to love and embrace Me and my natural beauty. I've wanted to document and share my natural hair journey for so long, but I didn't have enough confidence to do so. This blog was created in faith, boldness, and confidence. I desired to create this blog a while ago, and after being just a thought I had written down and stored away, I decided to just do it! I created Napturally Dany to share my story as a fellow natural. Here you'll find a variety of topics ranging from natural hair care tips, beauty, insipirational messages, health & fitness to anything else I could possible think of.
