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/

Is Fiber Important in Colon Health?

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

logo1267406_mdA new study in Immunity concluded that a receptor activated with mega-doses of niacin to protect the cardiovascular system also plays a key role in preventing colon inflammation and cancer. According to the researchers these findings help explain why a high-fiber diet reduces the risk of colon problems and indicates that when fiber is lacking, niacin, or vitamin B3, may help keep the colon healthy. In their study they found that mice lacking the receptor, Gp109a, were prone to inflammation and cancer of the colon and when they gave niacin to mice whose healthy colonic bacteria had been wiped out by antibiotics  it helped steer immune cells in the colon into a safe, anti inflammatory mode., It was previously found that good bacteria in the colon thrive on fiber and its digestion produces butyrate, a short chain fatty acid, that activates Gpr103a. The researhers said “To protect your colon, you need this receptor, as well as the fiber and butyrate which activate it”. For people who can’t eat high fiber foods in the diet, mega-doses of niacin may help protect the colon. “We think mega-doses of niacin may be useful in the treatment and/or prevention of uncerative colitis, Crohns disease,, and colorectal cancer as well as familial adenhomous polyposis, or PAP, a genetic condition that causes polyps id develop throughout the gastrointestinal tract.”
