Dr Patrick Vicker Discusses the Gerson Therapy

Dr. Patrick Vickers is the Director and Founder of the Northern Baja Gerson Clinic (Gerson Therapy). His mission is to provide patients with the highest quality and standard of care available in the world today for the treatment of advanced (and non-advanced) degenerative disease. His dedication and commitment to the development of advanced protocols has led to the realization of exponentially greater results in healing disease. Dr. Vickers, along with his highly trained staff, provides patients with the education, support, and resources to achieve optimal health.

Dr. Patrick was born and raised outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the age of 11 years old, after witnessing a miraculous recovery from a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Patrick’s passion for natural medicine was born.

Dr. Patrick obtained his undergraduate degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Life University before going on to receive his doctorate in Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1997.

While a student at New York Chiropractic College(NYCC), Dr. Patrick befriended Charlotte Gerson, the last living daughter of Dr. Max Gerson, M.D. who Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr. Albert Schweitzer called, ” One of the most eminent geniuses in medical history. “

Dr. Gerson, murdered in 1959, remains the most censured doctor in the history of medicine as he was reversing virtually every degenerative disease known to man, including TERMINAL cancer.

Upon graduating from NYCC in 1997, Dr. Patrick went on to study the Gerson Therapy directly under Charlotte Gerson at her home in San Diego, California. While living with Charlotte, Dr. Patrick spent several months going through Dr. Gerson’s handwritten files of all his active patients from 1910-1959; files that Charlotte has kept in her home to this day. Included in those files were hundreds of handwritten letters from Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, to Dr. Max Gerson. Schweitzer and Gerson were best friends after Gerson cured Schweitzer’s wife, Helena, of terminal tuberculosis when she had just 3 months to live.

Gerson also cured Schweitzer, himself, of severely advanced diabetes, in SIX weeks, eight years before Schweitzer won the Nobel Prize.

After several months of studying Dr. Gerson’s files, and several more months interning at the Gerson Clinic, Dr. Patrick opened chiropractic and Gerson clinics in Peru, Guatemala and Mexico before returning to the United States, in 2008, to open up this non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on the Gerson Therapy.

Since that time, Dr. Patrick has been traveling around the world lecturing at international embassies, Latin American medical schools and other miscellaneous venues. More information at: http://www.gersontreatment.com/

Can Mistletoe Kill Colon Cancer Cells?

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Researchers in Australia concluded that mistletoe has great  potential as an alternative therapy for patients with colon cancer. In the study the researcher compared the effectiveness of three different types of mistletoe extract and chemotherapy on healthy intestinal cells. On of the extracts, from a species known as Fraxini that grows on ash trees, was highly effective against colon cancer cells in cell cultures and was gentler on healthy intestinal cells than chemotherapy. Of significance, Fraxini extract was more potent against cancer cells than the chemotherapy drug. The researcher said “This is an important result because we know that chemotherapy is effective at killing healthy cells as well as cancer cells. This can result in severe side effects for the patient, such as oral mucositis (ulcers in the mouth) and hair loss.” In the study Fraxini mistletoe extract by itself was highly effective at reducing the viability of colon cancer cells and at certain concentrations also increased the potency of chemotherapy against cancer cells. Fraxini was the only one of the mistletoe extracts that demonstrated a reduced impact on health intestinal cells. Further research  is needed to add to this research of mistletoe and colon cancer.

Melanoma-A Serious Skin Cancer

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

picture-0611One of the guest interviewed this past week was a 33 year cancer survivor who had been given 3 months to live when diagnosed with melanoma. Melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer and usually can be avoided by reducing exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. When diagnosed in an early stage before metastasis it can often be successfully treated,

Traditionally surgery is used to remove cancerous tissue and in early stages may be all that is needed. Radiation and chemotherapy are not typically used except in advanced stages where there is metastasis.

There are some natural products that have shown promise when used for melanoma. Reducing sun exposure is crucial. A diet high in fruit and vegetables and whole grains is recommended. Studies have shown that vitamin D may suppress melanoma cell proliferation by up to 50% (good sources are dark green leafty vegetables and cold water fish) ; quercetin inhibits the invasiveness of melanoma cells in vivo; vitamin C and essential fatty acids inhibit the growth of melanoma cells in culture; mistletoe suppresses melanoma cell growth in vivo; genistein in soy products (legumes and soy beans) inhibits the growth of melanoma cells as effectively as chermotherapy drugs adriamycin and etoposide. The National Cancer Institute researchers also reported some success using a vaccine.

Research this month reported that starting to use of the tanning bed before age 30 increases the risk of melanoma by 75%. This same report stated that all types of ionizing radiation are carcinogens to humans and include: radon gas in homes cause lung cancer, plutonium and decaying products, radium and decaying products affecting the bones of medical patients, phosphorus 32 and its decaying products causing acute leukemia in medical patients, and radioiodines affecting the thyroids in children and adolescent survivors of nuclear reactor accidents.

New research is being reported daily so if you are in need of care for this type cancer ask you physician about the current natural products being used.

My first guest on the Holistic Health Show on BBS Radio (www.bbsradio.com) Station 3 last night was Dr Robert Eslinger of the Reno Integrative Medical Center. He has been in clinical practice for 27 years and combines traditional and complementary treatments for cancer patients. Treatments discussed included Nutritional Guidance, German New Medicine, Vitamin-Mineral Infusions, Immune Enhancement, Chelation Therapy, Oxidation Therapy and Homeopathy among others. Laetrile is part of the Vitamin Therapy used. More information is available at: http:www.renointegrative.com
On this show I also discussed my alternative treatments for lung cancer when I was given 6 months to live—33 years ago. Some of the interventions discussed were laetrile, a special diet, supplements, exercise, prayer, meditation, visualization, affirmations, emotional support, and faith. I am a registered nurse with two masters in public health nursing (U of California) and public health (Johns Hopkins U), and a doctorate in public health (Johns Hopkins U). I have continued a holistic approach to life and now at age 77 I am free of chronic illnesses and prescribed medications (average for age 75 is 3 chronic illnesses and 5 prescribed medications). My goal for this show is that you have the information so that you can achieve results similar to my own so that you can enjoy life without the pain, expenses, and inconveniences that often go along with chronic illnesses and prescribed medications. . More information about me can be found on this website.
