Garrett is a boy who has always been close to nature. He lives on a reserve with a menagerie of orphaned animals, and over the years he's become especially sensitive to the nutritional needs of the diet-sensitive animals he's charged with caring for. When Garrett's mother suffers a tragic and untimely death, the boy falls into a dangerous downward spiral and nearly flunks out of school. Increasingly concerned for Garrett's well-being and determined to strengthen their bond despite the many challenges on the horizon, his father makes the decision to begin home-schooling the distressed teen. Garrett's first assignment: study a controversial book written by Dr. Max Gerson, a physician who claims to have discovered a diet that's capable of curing cancer. Is Dr. Gerson's therapy truly the legitimate, alternative cure it appears to be? In order to find out the truth behind this long-suppressed treatment, Garrett interviews not only Dr. Gerson's family members, but various doctors, skeptics, and cancer patients as well. His studies completed and his findings revelatory, Garrett now sets out to tell the entire world about The Gerson Miracle.

Second video I've seen on Gerson which is an hour long sales pitch in passive agressive doumentary style. I beleive the overall idea but the criticisms about no evidence are still unanswered. Alot of "testimonials" are given though. There is never a "recipe" of what to eat unless I missed it. I do agree with their focus on diet and avoiding toxins.

Read up on the Gerson Therapy (e.g. Wikipedia, the info is interesting) and watch this with a skeptic's mind. I think eating mainly fruits and vegetables is the main part of this cure. Is it quackery or cure? Two sides tell two different stories, and it is up to you to decide. I wonder if the portal vein of the descending colon that is mentioned may be assisted to improve with massage therapy.

I recommend this documentary to everyone! Just amazing what we can do when we take control of our health and are no longer at the mercy of the medical establishment.

a must-see documentary -- we have all watched helplessly as someone we care about goes through the medical maze to find there is no real cure in modern western medicine just a stream of endless drugs with nasty side effects -- we need more like this film that offers simple solutions that have been hidden from the public - watch this film and share it with everyone you know
