|Jess is the beautiful young gal who writes the "Wellness Warrior". A blog that she started when chemo didn't "cure" a nasty Epithelioid Sarcoma she had & she started searching for alternatives. Since she wouldn't accept her arm getting cut off, she became a health guru girl extraordinaire, quickly transitioning from champagne to carrots. Currently she is using the "Gerson Therapy", a very intense Cancer therapy that uses lots of carrot & green juices (about 13 juices a day, at one hour intervals and freshly pressed!), cleansing, and supplements in a very exact manner. Jess is about 14 months into the Gerson Therapy and still has her arm! This is all inspiring news and her blog is one that I read almost religiously & usually it is bearing good news, positive affirmations, and healing talk.|

However, I gasped & cried when I read her recent post. Her mother has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and now both Jess & her mother will be doing this intensive therapy, at home. Her mother was being Jess's caregiver but is now going to need help from both Jess & Jess's father. Read Jess's Post about How 2 years of Gerson therapy suddenly became 3.

Now she is asking for some financial help because health insurance only covers chemo. Her mom is going to be doing the whole therapy now as well, which is going to be a whole lot of money of fresh fruits & veggies plus strain on her Dad as well, since he is going to have 2 beautiful lovelies to juice for now. Please Click on the "Wellness Warrior" link and check out the right hand side "Donation" (now it is only in this post but check the tabs on top too!) link if you are able to give any amount of money to help these beautiful people juice their way back to optimal health.
Do you guys read "Healing Blogs" about people beating tough stuff with integrative/holistic medicine, nutritional therapies?? If so, whose blogs do you read? Do you know anyone that has beat Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease this way? What did they use? I am wondering if there are other Gerson/Hippocrates bloggers out there. I know the Gerson takes a crazy amount of determination and it is a major life change to do the entire therapy (which you must do to get desired results). Apparently you usually need to do the therapy for 2 years & then follow their eating/juicing guidelines for life. I think "life" is the key word here. If they payoff is "life", then intensive juice therapy, supplements, and hours of enemas may suddenly seem more "doable".
