We have heard that Endometriosis all comes down to a poor immune system. To me this all sounded a little too vague. It is kinda like saying, you have irritable bowel syndrome—heard that one before! Everything just kinda gets lumped under one umbrella for all conditions. Surely all diseases are triggered by a lowered immune system? Isn’t that ultimately what the immune system does? Protect us from diseases?
So, anyways, a few days ago I got an email from a fantastic subscriber to my blog. She had been in contact with the Gerson Therapy Institute and had emailed them to find out if their therapy would work for Endometriosis and more importantly why it might work. In their words:
“On the basis of our review of patient outcomes, I can state that Gerson’s dietortherapy is a form of nutrition-based immunotherapy that has, in our experience, cured many cases of advanced Endometriosis. There are more than 30 endometriosis cases in our nonmalignant database, including instances of large benign growths like chocolate cysts (endometriomas). Complete nonsurgical remission of large cysts, followed by normal term pregnancies, was accomplished by a number of the younger women in cohort.
It was actually our clinical success with endometriosis that lead us to seek rationales in the literatures that would explain such responses to immunotherapy per se, because that is what Gerson’s treatment is, and because the common medical mindset was that endometriosis was a problem of the hormones. To our edification, we found that significant immune system disturbances have been identified and reported in endometriosis for decades. The condition clearly involves natural killer cells (NK Cells) deficiency and inactivity.”
Wow! That is seriously so interesting! So, basically our NK cells just need to be activated and increased and we will heal ourselves of Endometriosis? So it appears…
How do we increase our immune system?
1. Flush out the toxins that already exist in our bodies;
2. Pump in as many nutrients and minerals into the body that we can get in—juicing is what the Gerson Technique uses;
3. Cut out any foods that inhibit the immune systems functions; and
4. Support the immune system with extra tools like aloe vera, noni juice etc.
So, over the next few weeks I will be exploring more methods of supporting the immune system. I will do my best to find non-conventional methods as I think we need something super powerful for this to really alter what is going on inside of us!
Naturally, diet plays a part in this whole thing too… so I will explore that further for us along the way. If you know anything about the Gerson Therapy, please feel free to share!
Keep yourselves posted for further updates…
