In DYING TO HAVE KNOWN, filmmaker Steve Kroschel goes on a 52-day journey to find evidence supporting the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy — a long-suppressed natural cancer cure. His travels take him from Alaska to Mexico with stops in San Diego, New York, Japan, Holland and Spain. In the end, he presents the testimonies of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who testify to the therapy s efficacy in curing cancer and other degenerative diseases, and presents the hard scientific proof to back up their claims. Testimonies include: a Japanese medical school professor who cured himself of liver cancer over 15 years ago, a lymphoma patient who was diagnosed as terminal over 50 years ago as well as from noted critics of this world-renowned healing method who dismiss it out of hand as pure quackery. So the question that remains is, Why is this powerful curative therapy still suppressed, more than 75 years after it was clearly proven to cure degenerative diseases? The viewers are left to decide for themselves.

“What an excellent investigative video! It’s nice to see someone actually go out and get the whole story regarding healing cancer nutritionally, as is exemplified by the pioneering Gerson therapy, rather than just take a side and ignore the facts. And what Kroschel reveals, slowly but surely as he he travels throughout the world, is that cancer, and just about all other ills, can be healed with the proper diet, which includes juicing, etc.
Top proponents as well as top opponents to nutritional therapy are interviewed; very fair interviews which more often than not leave the opponents looking embarrassingly biased and close-minded, and rightly so. And it appears that most of the bias occurs right here in the USA. Spain is very open to the Gerson therapy, and Japan’s top doctors are now starting to use the Gerson nutritional therapy in various hospitals to cure cancers, with outstanding results!
What an indictment of the blindness of the US medical establishment that it may take the success of the nutritional approach in other nations in curing mankind’s health problems to finally force our nation’s health care system to reluctantly do what they should have done all along: use whatever approach to curing disease that works, no matter how much profit is to be made, or how much “eating crow” may be involved. Health is more important than wealth every time!”

“The AMA has suppressed the Gerson Therapy because cancer is very profitable. But what is amazing is that when cancer patients switch to an organic vegetarian diet with lots of fresh-squeezed organic juice, their cancers go away. The film is beautifully shot, perfectly edited, and conveys a powerful message for all of us–whether we suffer from cancer or not–about the miraculous healing power of fruits and vegetables.”

“Very informative, it opens a healthy discussion in the medical community, or at least within the mind of critical thinking people who do not freely swallow the information of our establishment(s)…”

“You will be very startled at what you hear on this DVD backed by doctors who have experienced this therapy on themselves. Gerson was poisoned with arsenic because of what he was trying to do…reveal that natural ways can and do improve degenerative diseases and in many cases cure them.”

“This was a really powerful movie. Very well done. It explores the Gerson therapy and the narrator interviews many conventional doctors as well. I went right home and juiced a carrot/apple/greens drink! He makes an excellent case for food based health care as opposed to the Traditional chemical based health care that we have in this country. I did not want the movie to end, it was so enjoyable.”
Melesa K. – February 2009
“This is a powerful film that documents the underlying reasons why the medical establishment ONLY pushes drugs, chemotherapy and radiation for the treatment of cancer and not only dismisses alternative healing but the medical insurance companies won’t even cover alternative therapy. The reason? There’s no MONEY in treatments that actually eradicate disease! There’s simply too much money to be made in the cancer industry! This is a chilling reminder that ignorance is not bliss! The American Medical Association and the National Cancer Society are merely organizations to ensure that the truth doesn’t get out! They are in place to CAPITALIZE on the cancer BUSINESS! Truly a life changing film! I prepared myself a fresh fruit smoothie after watching it!”
