1 big or 2 small fresh organic leeks
1 pound fresh organic potato or several small ones
1 1/2 pounds organic fresh tomatoes
1 large organic onion or 2 small onions
1 sm/medium organic celery knob (I have found that
the smaller, fresher knobs are more delicately flavored)
or 3/4 stalks organic celery
1 small parsley root (if unavailable, can substitute
3/4 sprigs of organic parsley)
Don’t peel any of the vegetables as many of the minerals and nutrients are stored directly beneath the skin. Scrub carefully and cook SLOWLY at low heat for 3 hours with a small amount of clean pure water, then mash and eat.
You can add small amounts of fresh organic parsley and fresh pressed raw organic garlic to taste.
It’s hard to for anyone to say why this soup holds such particular power. I have attempted to creatively altered the recipe and not received the same results. Is it the placebo effect? I’m not sure. But even Dr. Gerson remarked that this soup was very special and highly effective in his regimen even if he wasn’t absolutely sure of the dynamics.
Gerson was able to heal terminally ill cancer patients through his therapy. He was also able to cure other patients with diseases such as tuberculosis, multiple schlerosis, diabetes, arthritis, allergies, ulcers, heart disease, arterioschlerosis, mental disease, kidney disease.
The renowned humanitarian and physician, Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote that Gerson was a “medical genius who walked among us.”
