Garrett is a 15-year old boy living in the Alaskan wilderness with a menagerie of orphaned animals. Growing up close with nature has given him a deep
understanding of nutritional needs required by diet sensitive animals on the reserve. Unfortunately, the untimely and tragic death of his mother propelled him into a
downward spiral and he risked flunking out of school. This led to his father’s decision to home-school Garrett. His first assignment was to study a controversial book
written over 50 years ago by Dr. Max Gerson.
Dr. Gerson found that diet could, and did, cure cancer. Gerson's pioneering theories were controversial at the time (and even today), but Garrett took on the challenge
of researching this amazing therapy, drawing the interest of his neighbors in the small Alaskan community. With the help of Dr. Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte Gerson,
and grandson, Howard Straus, who gave him the ammunition needed to go in search for the truth – Garrett brought home a truth that would affect not only him, but his
entire Alaskan village – all of whom wanted to know if these claims were true.
After a number of cancer patients, who were diagnosed as terminal, shared their stories and their medical records with Garrett, it became abundantly clear that,
contrary to the disinformation campaign spear-headed by the multi-billion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, a cure for virtually all cancers and chronic
diseases does exist – and has existed for over 80 years! Garrett’s mission now is to tell the world.
Run Time: 93 Minutes
This is a beautiful DVD! The main feature is very good and illuminating. However the bonus feature titled: "The Gerson
Therapy: A director's Perspective" -- is simply THE BEST!!! Just for the bonus feature alone, this DVD is worth its weight in
diamonds. I don't believe there is another testimonial in the entire world that can make a believer out of everyone like
those shown in the bonus feature will!
How come the US Congress has not set up a investigation committee at the highest levels of government to understand
why alternate approaches, of which Max Gerson's is one such, are so effective where modern medicine has failed
completely? How come the Gerson approach is able to heal terminally ill cancer patients, with life expectancies in weeks,
when modern medicine had sent them home to die? Why is Gerson's approach so successful using non-invasive and
non-barbaric procedrues in contrast to modern medicine? How come these terminally ill people are alive decades later
looking vibrant and full of life, with absolutely no signs of mutilation? Why are these success stories not broadcast 24/7 on
cable TV networks? When was the last time you watched someone who had been mutilated, nuked, chemo-ed etc come
forth with accolades for the treatment they underwent? There are many such questions that need to be answered.
However, like in every such case where the truth stands out but the answers are not forthcoming, one need only follow the
money trail. The US Congress and the regulatory agencies -- USDA and FDA, are in the back pockets of Big Pharma and
the AMA. Its so simple! The "big guys" in the USDA and FDA are mostly former executives of Bigh Pharma or the
multinational agribusiness. So its a "old boys" network between them with revolving doors. This is why such practices are
allowed to persist while the medical establishment rakes in some $700,000 per cancer patient. The only loser in all this is
the patient, who loses body parts, gets nuked (radiated), chemically treated with the most toxic substances known to man,
mutilated by the knife and eventually dies, if not from the cancer itself, then from the treatment! Dante's version of hell is
not in some nether world, but it exists right in our biggest and best medical schools, hospitals, nursing homes and such
The whole dread complex around the disease of cancer drummed up my the Big Pharma, medical establishment, the
American Medical Association (AMA), National Cancer Institute (NCI), American Cancer Society (ACS)and the rest is just a
myth. They are completely, and I mean COMPLETELY on the wrong track when it comes to addressing the causes of
chronic, degenerative and terminal illnesses. They have failed abysmally. They are like the three stooges trying to fix a
problem they know nothing about!
The dread complex around such terminal diseases as cancer and others is deliberately engendered by Big dread complex
to justify "Walk for the cure", bake sales, lapel pins, pink ribbons etc I cannot find enough words The dread complex
around such terminal diseases as cancer and others is deliberately engendered by Big in the English dictionary to express
my contempt and repugnance towards Big Pharma, the AMA, medical think Pharma and the AMA, to generate funds and
sympathy for their failures at producing a cure. They need the they are. They have completely forgotten two of
Hippocrates proclamations, "Do no harm", and "Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food." A
humble colon irrigation technician at a health spa does more good for the cause of healing than all these buffoons with a
string of degrees following their names.
One would think that for the benefit of humanity they would step aside and let the Gerson therapy heal these cases. One
would think that the US Congress would immediately investigate these cases and revamp the curriculums across the
medical schools in this country to incorporate this approach to healing patients. After all, is not the health care budget a
VERY LARGE portion of the total fiscal budget? Are not the health care costs the most significant concern for the entire
US population, specially the increasingly aging population?
This DVD must be compulsory viewing for any one interested in true health care. If anyone in your family or circle of
friends and co-workers has cancer, or any other chronic, degenerative or terminal illness, please have them watch this
DVD! The cure is very simple. Its all centered around detoxification and proper nourishment. Please recall -- THE TRUTH
IS ALWAYS SIMPLE!!!
Like I wrote before, the bonus feature on this DVD is the single greatest testimonial to the success story for the healing of
cancer and other degenerative diseases! It is most definitely NOT the incurable disease that it has been made out to be. I
know I'll be buying several copies of this DVD to counterbalance the propaganda of the entire medical establishment.
Healing requires a full hearted commitment so as to accomplish a dramatic change in lifestyle. Successful healing is
impossible solely by consuming medication. Surgery, mutilation through radiation and chemo, bone marrow transplants etc
are all highly dangerous and unnecessary procdures. The toxic nature of the chemicals and radiation speak for themself.
Ask the physicians and nurses as to why so many of them would turn down these options if they were ever diagnosed with
Please take my advice in these matters and educate yourself thoroughly about different options. Watch DVDs like this one
and hear testimonies from patients who recovered. Try all non-invasive procedures available through holistic healing
approaches -- colon cleansing, raw living foods, massages and steam bath, any and all detox procedures etc Only as a
last resort should one hand over one's body for experimentation and mutilation.

This documentary reveals a simple truth to healing ourselves. You are what you eat...eat to live...food is the best medicine...all of these well-known conepts, when put into
practice, really work! I have a relative who was cured of cancer through the Gerson Therapy in Mexico. She is in her ninties now!

WARNING: THIS MOVIE MAY CAUSE EXTREME WELLNESS,
Dr. Max Gerson saved my life. PLEASE WATCH THIS MOVIE. IT could save the life of someone you know or may know in the future. The Gerson Therapy is saving people
from having their testicles, eyes, prostates, removed and discarded. And after all that the patient still has a severe metabolic breakdown, and just maybe they'll throw in a little
chemical cocktail for an expensive, sickening finish. PLEASE BUY THIS MOVIE! For the sick and the suffering. This movie will change your life if you let it. TOO ALL THE DR.
GERSON HATERS>>> TOO BAD COMMON SENSE ISN't COMMON. I personally know many cases of true wellness caused by the content of this Movie. Thank you for
LYL - San Diego
I watched this video at my holistic dentist's office and loved it. I loved that Dr. Gerson's therapy is not only for cancer but other illnesses. It also made you aware of diet and
the governments role in poisoning us with processed foods, amalgam filling, and flouridated water. This was great documentry and eye opener.
Nathan B. - September 2009
I have known about Dr. Max Gerson for almost 20 years and have seen some early B & W video, but this great new documentary really puts it all together. I have friends who
have tried Dr. Gerson's diet and have achieved great results with their own health! This video should be required viewing in all schools. If you know anyone with serious
health challenges, get them this video! It's a little "low budget" but it really gets the point and the proof across in simple, straight forward terms.
Lover of Sushi - July 2009
Regardless if you agree 100% or not with this film, it is definitely something that everybody should watch at least once! There are a lot of true gems of information here, and
people who are experts in their fields come on camera to further clarify and explain just what is going on in the food and drug industries.
Food is SO understated in American society! And that's sad, because food is what sustains us, keeps us alive, and can either help or harm us. Pay attention to what you put
in your bodies, people! As my father always says: "You are what you eat."
April Fear - July 2009
I enjoyed this DVD. I have read books and articles on each of the topics covered in this video. The topics are not new to me, but I did enjoy having them all presented
together. This is a great video to start a new thinking process for those who are looking for a healthier way of life.
And for the guy who was repulsed by the thought of a coffee enima, I have never had one, but would be the first in line if my choice was between a coffee enima or chemo!
S.D. Doyle - June 2009
Some of the material presented in this video was familiar to me, as someone already interested in preventive measures and natural healing. However, it educated me further
on enough issues to want to study more
about the Gerson therapy- SO, i ordered the other 2 books on the subject!
"The Beautiful Truth" tells the story of Max Gerson and his Gerson therapy, a treatment that requires around-the-clock intake of organic fruit-and-vegetable drinks. To detoxify
the body, coffee-based enemas are also employed - a fact that director Steve Kroschel frames with mild amusement through drawings and interviews with small-town Alaskans
who question Gerson's ideas.
The small town is home for Kroschel and his son Garrett, an inquisitive 15-year-old who is the documentary's front man. Garrett begins by knowing nothing about Gerson
therapy and ends up (with the help of his filmmaker father) traveling the United States and Mexico to meet people with expertise on the treatment, alternative cancer therapies,
and the U.S. food industry, whose chemical additives have been linked to obesity and other health problems.
The skateboarding Garrett is a perfect stand-in for a general audience that knows little about Gerson (who died in 1959) or his medical philosophies, which are advocated
today by his daughter Charlotte, and practiced by scores of patients whose cancers were considered death sentences by the medical establishment. We meet a woman who,
five years earlier, had Stage IV ovarian cancer (the most lethal stage), and says she beat her illness with Gerson therapy. We meet a woman who was riddled with tumors but
whose recovery is attributed to juicing and organic foods. And we meet (through historical photos) Albert Schweitzer, the Nobel Prize-winning philosopher who said his diabetes
was cured by Gerson's diet and that Gerson was "one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine."
We also meet Gerson through archival video taken of him at his professional prime, but "The Beautiful Truth" is more about the present than the past, and Kroschel does an
admirable job of weaving in related subjects, including obesity and food additives; the possible dangers of mercury tooth fillings; and the medical establishment's reliance on
"The Beautiful Truth" has its faults, most notably in its omissions. While the film gives time to critics of Gerson therapy (including Bay Area doctor and radio host Dean Edell),
who say there's no medical evidence of its success, "The Beautiful Truth" doesn't adequately elucidate their opposition. For example, the Gerson Institute's clinic is in Mexico
because it uses drugs that the Food and Drug Administration bans for cancer treatment, but the documentary doesn't stress that. Nor does it mention that a onetime supporter
of Gerson therapy, an Oregon naturopathic physician named Steve Austin, tracked Gerson patients and found few cases of cancer recovery.
Still, "The Beautiful Truth" succeeds because of its sympathetic provocation: Its engaging narrative and personal stories force us to question the U.S. medical establishment's
rejection of Gerson's therapy and to question the establishment's relationship with the pharmaceutical industry. Audiences will be inspired to seek more information about the
therapy, natural treatments for cancer and the American food industry's reliance on artificial additives to make tasty products. After watching this film, even buttered and salted
popcorn - a staple of the moviegoing experience - takes on added (and disturbing) significance.

The Beautiful Truth:
Documentary. Written and directed by Steve Kroschel.
One of 2008's most notable documentaries, "The Beautiful Truth" is about an all-natural treatment for cancer - a subject that in
another director's hands might be dry and foreboding but is here illuminating, touching, funny, sad, rage-inducing, provocative,
entertaining and hopeful. It's Michael Moore without the truculence, PBS without the pretension, CNN without the commercial
An unusual and sobering documentary which turns conventional wisdom about health
matters on its head.
Nov 18, 2008 - By Eric Monder
The mainstream medical community will hate Steve Kroschel’s film, but The Beautiful Truth should make everyone else
think hard about their healthcare options. Kroschel’s matter-of-fact approach lends credence to his arguments.
Playing off the title An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s hit environmental documentary, The Beautiful Truth also explores the
interrelatedness of wellness and the environment. In Kroschel’s narrative, an Alaskan teenager named Garrett (the director’
s son) seeks to discover why his mother died tragically young and learns some alarming facts.
When Garrett’s father gives him a decades-old book by Dr. Max Gerson, which contends there is a link between diet and a
cure for cancer, the boy decides to find out more about Gerson and his theories. He embarks on a cross-country journey,
meeting scientists, doctors and cancer survivors. What Garrett concludes is that there has been a wholesale cover-up of
the multi-billion-dollar medical and pharmaceutical industries’ efforts to foist drugs on society that are either of little help or
downright harmful. Garrett’s hometown benefits from his wisdom and develops new ways of curing diseases, while the boy
plans to tell the world about the Gerson Therapy.
Implementing the deadpan-style humor of Michael Moore, Steve Kroschel probes his topic with a healthy sense of irony and
wonder. Recognizing that angry muckraking would turn off most viewers, he smartly uses the questioning but relatively
innocent Garrett as his “stand-in.”
It is fascinating to hear about the evils of fluoride (after years of being told how good it is) and the impact of MSG and
aspartame on brain cancer. Either The Beautiful Truth will shock you or confirm your worst suspicions, and even the
skeptical will want to find out more on their own. The film’s technical credits are above-average.
One of the better documentaries to be released this year (or at least one of the more important ones),
The Beautiful Truth is a must-see.
