Dying To Have Known

In Dying To Have Known, filmmaker Steve Kroschel went on a 52-day journey to find evidence to the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy – a long-suppressed natural cancer cure.
His travels take him across both the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, from upstate New York to San Diego to Alaska, from Japan and Holland to Spain and Mexico.
In the end, he presents the testimonies of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who testify to the therapy’s efficacy in curing cancer and other degenerative diseases, and presents the hard scientific proof to back up their claims.
You will hear from a Japanese medical school professor who cured himself of liver cancer over 15 years ago, a lymphoma patient who was diagnosed as terminal over 50 years ago as well as noted critics of this world-renowned healing method who dismiss it out of hand as pure quackery.
So the question that remains is, Why is this powerful curative therapy still suppressed, more than 75 years after it was clearly proven to cure degenerative disease? The viewers are left to decide for themselves.

    Another day, another miraculous natural cure for cancer repressed by these “ignorant” scientists and their so called “years and years of hard work, and studies” looking for “evidence” or “proof”…

    I HATE the sound of this guy’s voice… honestly, he should have gotten someone else to do the voice over because he sounds like a creepy weirdo.

    I cannot imagine anyone who has a disease and watches this documentary, not feel immense hope and fervor to pursue this route of healing. I am not, thank God, but I am very interested in getting the material and living by this way. This was an excellent documentary and the narrators voice was very necessary to aid introspection and the emotional journey you get taken on when learning about the good and the bad and the way out! Well done! Well done!

    Truly amazing documentary.  Everyone that is concerned about health should see this film.  The Food Matters documentary, another fabulous film, led me to this one.  The Gerson Therapy has been suppressed by the medical system because healthy people don’t lead to profits for the pharmaceutical industry.  The Gerson Therapy (mostly a raw plant based-diet) can prevent and often stop cancer in its tracks.  It shocks me that so many people still rely on the corrupt medical system for answers when they should be looking towards natural health approaches like this one.  We should all be eating a very high raw organic vegan diet if we want to be as healthy as possible.

    It is so important that work like this is exposed so we can self-educate ourselves about our health and stop allowing powerful and political drug companies to control our lives through our health!  Thank you for sharing this great documentary.

    truly amazing and Charlotte skin OMG! can I say Gerson therapy now !! 

  • clara

    I’m so happy to see comments here. it shows that we are “self educating” and not just living day to day by “public education” which basically consists of studying what others before us discovered..
    I wish more people can judge marketing and alll that blah blah things for themselves. I wish society start realising their power to change. =( please share this documentary !!!!!

    Do your research people, google about this methods, dr gerson cancer skeptic and etc, weight all evidence before you believe a biased claims, specially claims like that

    @ Latoya_182 Are you talking about the narrator. If you are than you are a creepy weirdo. I can perfectly understand the whole documentary

     i had my thyroid removed along with several tumors in my neck due to cancer. the reason oncologists dont want people to receive gerson therapy is because it isn’t as effective as others and can potentially delay a patient from seeking proven treatments. there’s no conspiracy, doctors prescribe what they believe will work best.

    i understand distrust of big pharma and their peddling of unnecessary drugs for ailments with natural cures, but i’m sorry to say i don’t believe cancer is one of them. chemo- and radiation therapy are horribly uncomfortable, but its what worked for me. by all means, seek natural cures, and remember its your choice what treatment you wish to take, no one else’s.

    Okay, first, all you Gerson supporters have to do to prove it, is to a large double blind randomized study.

    Second, the only kind of cancer they talk about in the Japanese research is Metastatic Liver Cancer, which has a 50% success rate according to the scientist in the film.   WHICH IS 5% LESS THAN CONVENTIONAL TREATMENTS.

    An Italian study on metastatic cancer treatment has a 1 year survival rate of 55% with Chemo-Embolization 72% with Heptectomy, and 81% with a liver transplant.Sorry but if I can get the transplant with the 5 year rate of survival holding steady at 74%, awesome.  I’m gonna go with that over 50% and have the runs from constantly shoving coffee up my butt.I agree, we need more sustainable food practices, less processed foods, a better understanding of nutritional and dietary needs, a better healthcare system.However, I’d much rather have a healthier diet, AND informed science, AND access to a liver transplant if I got Metastatic Liver Cancer.  Because at the end of the day, CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE WORKS BETTER THAN MEDIEVAL JIGGERY POKERY.I cannot stress this enough.  Obviously this is not the case for all cancers, we need MUCH more research on this.  If you fervently believe that this works, get a skeptic to review your methods as you move forward, make a double blind research study and PROVE IT.  Then get some scientists once you have the facts, and figure out what does it.Gerson was on to something with the molecular biology of the liver, which is likely why it helps liver cancer well, it’s doubtful it does a bang up job on say kidney cancer or lung cancer, but who knows.  Test it, replicate it, prove it, remove the variables, do it again, be scientists if you want to show it works.

      How would you structure a double blind randomised trial with this sort of therapy, what would you give the control group ?

    Gerson therapy can lead to several significant health problems. Serious illness and death have occurred as a direct result of some portions of the treatment, including severe electrolyte imbalances. Continued use of enemas may weaken the colon’s normal function, causing or worsening constipation and colitis. Other complications have included dehydration, serious infections and severe bleeding.[2]

    The therapy may be especially hazardous to pregnant or breast-feeding women.[2]

    Coffee enemas have contributed to the deaths of at least three people in the United States. Coffee enemas “can cause colitis (inflammation of the bowel), fluid and electrolyte imbalances, and in some cases septicemia”.[18] The recommended diet may not be nutritionally adequate.[19][20] The diet has been blamed for the deaths of patients who substituted it for standard medical care.[21]

    Relying on the therapy alone while avoiding or delaying conventional medical care for cancer has serious health consequences.[2]Jessica Ainscough, better known as “The Wellness Warrior”, was a major proponent of the Gerson diet after her diagnosis with cancer. She rejected medical treatment and followed the diet strictly, documenting her progress in a popular online blog. She died from the cancer in February 2015, aged 30.
