I am posting this blog in honor of my Mother who passed away 2 years ago. It would have been her 85th birthday.
In 1978 while I was still in high school my mother developed breast cancer. I had no idea what detoxification was or how it worked. The nutritional program that she decided to use to help her overcome her condition was the Gerson Program. The main strategy of this program is detoxification which treats existing conditions and can prevent disease. My mother taught me how to do a coffee enema when i was a freshmen in college. I bet Sigmund Freud would have a field day with that one. Now in my 18th year of private practice detoxification as a healing strategy is the most important part of my practice. Below is a brief video of Charlotte explaining the history of the Gerson Program.
