Dr Patrick Vicker Discusses the Gerson Therapy

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

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 a High Level of Vitamin B12 Indicate a Risk of Cancer?

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute concluded that vitamin B12 is essential for maintaining healthy bodily functions but higher than normal levels of 200 to 600 pmol/L may indicate the person is at -risk of developing certain cancers. Previous studies have also seen this association.,

To evaluate this association, the researchers reviewed 333,667 patients from the Medical registry in Denmark  between 1998 and 2010./ These patients did not have cancer but had been referred for vitamin B12 testing. Patients with a diagnoses of cancer before the testing and those receiving Vitamin B12 therapy were excluded. They found that the risk of cancer increased with higher vitamin B 12 levels especially for those with levels above 800pmol/L. After 5 years of follow-up the risk of hematological and alcohol and smoking-related cancers remained high for those with levels above 800pmol/L/ Researchers concluded “high plasma vitamin B12 levels increased the risk of subsequently diagnosed cancer. mostly within the first year of follow up. ” They also believe that high vitamin B12 levels in food do not usually increase vitamin B12 levels significantly and instead, high vitamin B12 levels may result from some unknown malignant process.
