The Gerson Therapy is a very practical, highly detailed book that guides the reader through an intensive nutritional treatment for people who suffer from cancer and other severe diseases.
The work from Max Gerson, M.D., contains 400 pages of specifics, instructions, hints, cautions, recipes, case histories and references and was passed on to his daughter Charlotte Gerson who has immersed her whole life in healing people. She first studied with her father and was then teaching his method to the whole world.
Max Gerson found a way to cure cancer, by providing his patients a strict fat-free, salt-free, low-protein, essentially vegetarian diet based on fresh vegetable juices in large quantities, supplements and systemic detoxification methods.
cancer results in high toxicity and deficiencies within the body. To eliminate this toxins an hourly administration of fresh vegetable juice is prescribed, to help flush out the kidneys. The poisonous substances (accumulated over many years) then enter the blood stream and get filtered by the liver. To help support and strengthen the liver the patient inserts coffee at body temperature, absorbed from the colon via the HEMORRHOIDal vein, which transfers the caffeine to the portal system. the caffeine stimulates the bile to open and release the toxins into the intestinal tract for excretion.
the gerson therapy is a success story and although often miss treated and not taking seriously it has saved many lives or let people live years longer than with regular medical treatment.
Especially the everyday life after changing diet according to the gerson therapy improves tremendously in both quality and length. The patients are less fatigue, weak and their energy level improve almost to normal. So why the therapy is yet still unknown after six decades of practice and not included in every treatment plan? Because it is not profitable enough as a part of our pharmaceutical system. Doctors don’t get paid for these methods and are not trained sufficiently when it comes do diet, nutrition and food. It is not even a big part at of their studies at university.
Therefore we need to SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE, spread the word and help the change to make this world a better place!
I see in Dr. Max Gerson one of the most eminent geniuses
in medical history.

Ok, maybe i convinced you to look into veganism a little closer.. but how to get started? Well, i would always start by watching ‘Cowspiracy’ and ‘What the health’ available on Netflix. They are both made by the same producers and explain almost everything. I also love Michael Greger and his dry sense of humor explaining and researching everything. His book ‘How not to die’ shows in which way the western diet harms our body and why and how we should adapt to a plant-based diet. It is a really good book! He is also speaks in many different documentaries and his most famous speeches are all available on Youtube. Gaining knowledge and understanding WHY you should go vegan is in my opinion the most important part, because as i mentioned before, you have to be willing, committed and passionate about making a positive change in your life.
After taking the decision it is actually pretty simple: Don’t eat or consume anymore products that are made out of animal products or have been produced by harming them. Check the back of your favorite cereals. If they contain milk or milk-powder just substitute them with others who don’t. There is also a great online program called the
that helps and guides you the first 3 weeks. After your first day of being vegan you might get a proud comforting feeling in your stomach that you have actually survived a day without meat or your usal habits. Why? Because it is not like in a diet. I am talking to the ladys here especially 😉
It is not like being on a diet, changing your habits because we want to lose some weight.. It is not about restriction it is about adapting! So you can still eat as much as you want, get full, have an oreo cookie if you need something sweet and you are using your brain to be aware of what is inside the products you are consuming. It is actually fun and the good side of it is you will lose some weight! Guaranteed! I lost almost 10 kilos.. of course also due to my intense yoga practice and teachings but eating a nourishing whole foods plant-based diet has a profound impact on your whole body and system. I felt so much lighter and you know what stopped? Being hungry and craving for something all the time. Now i have a meal and thats it. No more after one hour i eat this and then just before dinner i’ll have this .. it just stopped and it feels amazing! Also a lot of people told me about their digestion and how they didn’t know that it is normal to go to toilet for the big business up to 3 times per day (!!!). instead they went once every three days… oh my god imagine you have all this rotten flesh in your intestines for over threeeeeee daaaays!
So this topic will change eventually and you should be excited for this, the great skin you will get and the new happy feeling. Because all the depressing emotions of the killed animals and the suffering from cows who lost their babies just after a couple of days or being killed in the slaughterhouses won’t be emitted into your body anymore.
When i accidentally had a Cappuccino with cow milk after 4 months being vegan i felt so bad! Not only in my stomach.. i got really depressed, sad and angry! That was due to all the hormones in the milk that are really not supposed to be consumed by human beings. We don’t drink mothers milk when we are grown up and most people feel disgusted by that thought. So how come we are the only species who drink mother milk from others? No other animal or creature does that. The milk a cow mommy produces is for her baby and her baby only , to turn it into a tonne heavy cow in a very short period of time! Drinking that milk as a human – man can get titts and women completely out of their hormonal balance.
But we have been told from when we were young it is good to substitute mothers milk with cows milk because of all the nutrients and the calcium to strengthen our bones.
Well its so sad but it is one of the biggest industrial lies of all times.
We have been brainwashed for decades to buy their products but in fact there is absolutely no reason why we should be drinking milk from any other species.
After telling my family that i became a vegan they were so great and tried it all or at least stopped eating meat. When my grandma was craving for cheese after a few month and had buckled up for some she was so sick all night that she had to call the ambulance the next morning. She stayed vegan since 😉
I hope i was able to inspire you a little bit to get started! I will share more information soon and i will also tell you all about my studies as i will become a certified nutrition coach focusing on plant-based diet. If you need help or have any kind of questions please contact me or leave a comment here. I would love to hear about your experiences and how you started becoming vegan. Good Luck and all the best to you!
Why is it so important for me to share all of this?
“What happened with her?!” and where is it all coming from?
Taking that step, going to the Ashram, practicing Yoga, going vegan and surrendering to what life had brought to me changed me and my whole life completely. It made my life so beautiful and so much happier that i feel the need to say thank you!
I want to share my experiences to also make your life happier and to give you some inspiration where to find knowledge to grow. maybe some parts of my experiences find you just right and we can reach together a higher state of consciousness.
How did that happen?
By following my heart… first to Bangkok .. what brought divine love into my life and following this love .. yoga came to me.
since i started following my heart and soul I don’t eat the same way and I don’t sleep the same way i used to do.
My thoughts are different, my commitment and attitude towards other living beings has changed. I don’t work in the same profession anymore, I don’t drink or smoke and instead of going out late i go up early in the morning – a goal i thought I would never be able to achieve in life! I look and feel different and i can say i am on my way, trying to become the best version of myself.
Until i changed my diet I always had problems with my stomach and digestion. Sometimes i had cramps so bad that i almost lost consciousness. Since i ‘m vegan i never had them again. My skin is much better and my hair looks shiny. I have more power and it elates me to eat clean, saving animals and the environment.
People keep asking me isn’t it hard to be vegan?
I feel like
taking this decision made my life so much easier!
There are no more question running through my mind ‘oh should i have another cake or i feel like ice cream..’ It is a commitment that stops several dialogues in your head.. because you already made up your mind and decided! You took a choice how to live your life and you are committed! No room for excuses or discussions with yourself.
When i got the knowledge about why going vegan it was only one thought that activated the whole process. Understanding why!
I CLAIM IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH SELF-LOVE.
After reading and studying about nutrition and plant-based diet I had to admit that
-honestly- I love my self too much than to harm my body and system every day for “brain” pleasure and I never ever missed something.. That’s the weirdest part! Normally i expected cravings and feeling sad for not having something anymore but honestly i never felt sorry that i am not having something anymore!!! It is so easy to replace food and it became a challenge in almost everything i do…
Cooking dishes as similar as possible to how i used to cook (before I lived on a plant based diet) and being so proud that things feel, taste and look the same! i promise You can copy everything!
Also trying to avoid plastic as much as possible can get addictive 🙂
So the sooner we start learning how we do that best – start copying and become more aware of our environment!
the sooner the better and the earth can start healing again.
BUT NOW tHE most important part is … EVERYONE can do that!
I am nothing special. Everyone is capable of committing, taking a decision and making a choice whether you want to adapt something new in life or not. Actually I am pretty lazy and i honestly don’t like to work out hard. But i COMMITTED and I stay determined. I committed myself to yoga and to my practice and that brought all the change in my life. Sometimes i look in the mirror and still need to get used to this new self, because it took only 5 months. I lost almost 10 kilos, gained muscles I´ve never had before and shed my skin.
I really want to encourage you to look into your life and into yoga philosophy, nutrition and healthcare to become the best version of yourself! I wish i could show you all individually how easy and how much fun it is! if you need help along the way i will support you – if you want to!
So please feel free to contact me anytime!
in my opinion it all starts with love. Self-love and love towards others. Love who you are, what you do, what surrounds you and what accompanies you along the way. Sit down and reflect.. what do you love and what not? Then take action. Change the things you don’t love and replace them with things, people, places and moments that brings joy, happiness and peace in your life and they will attract more…
That’s the law of the universe!
Love to you all
Becoming vegan was probably the best decision i took in my life.
Honestly - it fills me up with joy every single day and i am proud that i already "digested" the great knowledge why and how to live on a plant-based diet and that i was able to understand and embrace it.
It all started with moving to the Ashram where they only provided nourishing strict vegan food, based on vegetables grown in their own garden, next to the property. Of course they also educated us why Yogis choose to live a vegan lifestyle and what it means in terms of health and the environment.
One afternoon we watched 'Cowspiracy' and it is hard to explain what happened in that 2 hours. It changed EVERYTHING .
I took a decision. I committed . For life.
Since that day i never ever questioned that decision.
But a flame inside of me has arouse, that desperately wants to share the KNOWLEDGE and helps this world to make a change.
Because if we are not waking up as soon as possible and stop consuming the planet and their creatures we won't be able to stay here much longer. Looking into this, as scary as it sounds is so important! We need to become aware of what is happening outside of our little lifes. So i made it my mission to Help the change!
I stay positive and hope for the good in humankind.
I am pretty sure that one day Meat will get labelled same as cigarettes! It always makes me smile imaginING that processed Meat and Fish would also be stored behind the cashier with white covers so you wouldn't see the actual products anymore.
I don't think it will be exactly like that but i am pretty sure the day will come where we find a big fat information sticker on meat and processed products indicating the dangers of consuming them.
so WHY should we stop eating animal products ? Because consuming meat and animal protein is not healthy for human beings!
if you need PROof, just open your mouth in front of a mirror. our teeth are not designed to eat flesh from any other being. But furthermore its the unhealthy acids that are being produced while you ARE DIGESTing ANIMAL PRODUCTS. They are getting toxic and take "forever" to be processed in your stomach. Also the length of our INTESTINE differs to the ones animals have inside their body. ours is much longer, so in the process of digestion the meat starts rotting in your intestine long before its getting fermented..
The world Health Organization classifies processed meat as group one carcinogen, the same group that contains cigarettes, asbestos and plutonium. They found a direct link to consuming processed meat and cancer, looking over 800 studies from ten different countries. That means one serving of deli meats daily (50 gram portion of processed meat) increases the risks of COLO-RECTAL cancer by 18 %.
Consuming animal products is the cause of many severe diseases people are suffering from nowadays. my grandfather died from the major implications caused by meat and dairy consumption and i am sure everybody knows someone who died or suffered from these consequences.
These Diseases only started existing when we started eating processed animal products daily and increased the servings per day to a RIDICULOUs amount.
Many people tell me that mankind is supposed to eat meat and that we have been hunters for decades. WELL YES THAT IS TRUE BUT PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS MORE precisely..
When we were hunting it wasn't always easy to find wild animal. Sometimes man were out in the woods for several days and when they got something it was hardly enough for everyone. So they shared small portions. Pregnant women got a bigger serving and also children who were in their grow process needed a more protein and received more. So in the meantime, when there was no meat available, the ate nuts, berries and plants. The amount of animal products they consumed was rare and their way of living (running, hunting, fishing, carrying firewood) is
C O M P L E T E L Y different to the way we live today. Today people start their day with so much animal protein for breakfast that a Stone Age man would have had in a week.
The Organization classifies red meat as group two carcinogen.
So how is it possible that also kids are allowed to eat Bacon, Ham, Sausages and Salami, being declared as unhealthy as smoking cigarettes by the world health organization?
In the 60s no one would have ever believed that one day people are not allowed to have a smoke and a beer after work in their FAVORITE pub anymore. Now it is impossible just thinking about lighting a cigarette somewhere inside and smoker nowadays feel rather isolated standing outside alone.
This change took only a few years.. the same will happen with eating meat (i am just curious how long it will take ;))
Therefore we need to educate ourselves,
share the knowledge and stop consuming animal products!
I'm sure everyone of us, vegan or non-vegan had an extrem reaction hearing the word V E G A N for the first time.
I also thought 'oh no that's extreme and unnecessary'
when i first got introduced to what it means to live a vegan lifestyle.
Now .. today.. i predict that in 20 years no one will eat meat anymore and I wish and hope that we won't consume animal products anymore And abuse them..
I made it my mission to spread this message, share information and provide knowledge to help this change take place!
Why is that?
Because most of the problems we are facing in the world today could be eradicated by stopping the consumption of meat, Eggs and dairy.
People are behaving the way they do (in their every day life) due to 'lack of knowledge' - eating unhealthy food and killing animals for no other reason then pleasure!
For decades humanity has been brainwashed by the meat and diary industry to buy their goods and false information about health care and nutrition. on top of that, by the time they got sick from consuming these products, they get treated for billions of Dollars by the Pharmaceutical industry, being part of the charade.
A vicious circle!
I know that it is my destiny to help break this circle and to teach the knowledge that is sop DESPERATELY NECESSARY to ensure a prosperous, caring and peaceful future for all of us - together - on this planet!
If you ask most people how they think and feel about animal abuse and cruelty the answers and reactions are pretty similar. Fortunately unnecessary harm and violence against animals is not approved or tolerated in our society, so why is it so hard to become vegan then?
Maybe Because we don't get to see what happens in all the slaughterhouses? (By the way, where are they located exactly?) Or because we have been taught that a chicken feels and thinks differently to a dog or a cat (it doesn't).
Or is it because we have been told all these lies, that we need animal protein and calcium from milk to live a healthy life !?
When did we stop caring for animals? Remember when we were children Or even today when we see kids interacting with animals? These moments are captured the most in videos on youtube and Instagram..! There is always such an excitement, innocence and love towards when it comes to any kind of animal... That is also why people go on safari, go diving or in the forests to meet this beautiful creatures. even in the outback when we were driving past wild horses, it suddenly became a huge attraction.. people were shouting and felt amazed by the beauty of their wild, free and happy spirit.
James Aspey put it in a nutshell in one of the greatest speeches of all times..
Since when was it extreme to not want to harm animals? When did that become extreme? What's extreme is to say we love animals and we are against animal cruelty but we pay people to mutilate and torture and slaughter animals for foods an products we don't need!
And i need to repeat that! We do not need animal products to survive! Animals are being abused for taste, feel, comfort and look!
That's extreme !
In my section Self Studies Vegan you can get the knowledge where to read, listen and watch all different sources i have been studying for the last 10 months. They are so precise and profound - i am not going to try explaining all their information here in my words.
But It's so important that we all support each other and help the earth to heal again! We are sharing this planet with all living beings and its about time that we start using our intelligence to save the environment and to make this world a better place!
AFTER considering some of the knowledge you might share my prediction of having a meat free society in 20 years 🙂
how? if i caught your attention then please continue reading and follow me ..
I SPEND TWO MORE BEAUTIFUL DAYS IN BANGKOK BEFORE I SET FOOT ON THE NEXT LIFE CHaNGING ADVENTURE IN MY LIFE – MOVING TO AN ASHRAM AND ATTEND THE 200H yoga teacher Training program in Chiang mai.
ARRIVING IN CHIANG MAI ALMOST FELT LIKE HOME AND I WAS again IMMEDIATELY AMAZED BY THE ENERGY AND ATMOSPHERE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY! after our last breakfast in liberty we took a red cab to the beautiful nature in doi saket and entered the ashram.
we are living here now since 2 weeks – two more weeks to come.
THE FIRST WEEK WAS REALLY EXHAUSTING, SITTING AND STUDYING AT THE FLOOR FOR 8 HOURS. but I love the traditional practice of yoga and all the Topics we are discussing about life, the ancient times and the yoga sutras written by patanjali.
of Course every day starts with Meditation practice followed by asana class. i have learned a lot about life & environment and practical approaches.
the next two weeks will be about teaching practices and how to provide this Knowledge to the outside world! i also changed my eating Habits into a plant based diet and get up every morning at 6. feel very good and will give you a summary of the most important aspects at the end of my stay here.
it is a life changing experience and i can absolutely recommend this institute and experience to everyone who is interested in
–> why we are here on this earth and what is the higher meaning of life!
Yoga is much more than just a way of improving and excercising your body.. it's a holistic way of living to become the best version of yourself.
I will never forget the moment when i realized that yoga is not yoga..
Yoga the way we practice it in the western world - in a studio or a course - is actually called Asana practice. Asana originally means sitting posture in Sanskrit, the ancient primary liturgical language of Hinduism. It is referred to the postures we practice when we perform physical exercise.
It was at a workshop near Frankfurt when i met my teachers Jeenal and Daniel for the first time. They are a married couple (she from India and he from Brazil) living together in an Ashram in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I was sitting cross-legged in a basement with almost 30 other people when my transformation process began and i learned that Yoga is an old Philosophy from India and holistic way of living your life.
It was so fascinating listening to their words, that after 30 minutes i knew already that no matter what, i needed to go to Chiang Mai, do the Yoga Teacher Training and learn everything they are offering to teach!
6 months later i moved in to their lovely Ashram in the outskirts of Chiang Mai. The atmosphere and the beautiful nature around the property were just breath taking. Although I had been practicing yoga every other day in Nuremberg (where i had spent summer before) and thought i was prepared - I had no idea how the knowledge they were going to provide would change my whole life!
Thats when i learned what yoga is all about.
Yoga is not a religion. Its a way of life - aware and conscious. That means to find out who you really are and whats your purpose in life. Yoga helps to focus and concentrate on finding ones true nature and spirit in life.
The answers to most of your questions lie within yourself and with the help of yoga practice you can learn to listen to them. You can learn to listen to your heart and soul.. finding your individual truth. To achieve this state of so called 'enlightenment' is reached through meditation, asana practice and self reflection.
How can you EXPECT others to know and understand your self if you don't know your self or listen to what it is trying to tell you ..!?
Practicing yoga comes with devotion and a dedicated lifestyle. Instead of watching television before I go to sleep i now started thinking about what had happened that day, reflecting, studying or reading to gain more knowledge and to grow as a person.
The most inspiring knowledge and the roots of Indian philosophy are the 195 verses of Patanjali's Yogasutra. He is called 'the father' of yoga because he structured the patterns of yoga and put them in order into the scriptures of Yogasutra.
I was lost for words coming across all this ancient knowledge and when I read 'Ich. bin. jetzt. ' by Su Buson, an austrian writer who also interpreted the beginners path of Patanjali. The way she explains the beginners path of yoga (Ashtanga Yoga) and the BEAUTIFUL words she uses are just incredible. In my opinion every single human on earth should read her book for a start 😉
Looking inside yourself and taking the yogic path also enables us to find our roots and to concentrate on everyone's individual purpose and journey in life. Many people are stuck, fighting for approval, power, or money and are blurred by materialism. Moreover they keep listening to the same negative thoughts, running through their mind day by day by day. But this (often negative) reality is properly the exact opposite. It is not real! it is a made up reality in your head that won't allow you to experience peace and ease in your life. Therefore we practice Yoga. To concentrate and to gain peace, love, respect and awareness towards the environment and towards our self - to find your destiny and the way to your individual journey on this planet!
So to find a way out of this slough Patanjali explains in the Yogasutra the eightfold path - called Ashtanga, which literally means "eight limbs" (ashta=eight, anga=limb). These eight steps basically act as guidelines for beginners on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. They describe self-discipline, the morals and ethical conducts a yogi should internalize. Also they imply on food ethics, how to live a healthy life and help to acknowledge spiritual aspects of our nature.
In the next section Philosophy i will explain more detailed what the eight limbs of yoga comprehend and what they mean to my life.
Practicing Yoga brought me to peace in my life and after i set foot on the path everything fell into places, surrendering to my practice and to love. I learned that deep inside of me there existed a root that wanted to grow .. to elate and inspire others. And suddenly everything and every decision i took in my life made sense and i wish the same for you and your practice!
