Hi Kalpana, I have not tried Gerson's therapy, but I met someone yesterday who says she has been in remission from UC for 5 years because of Gerson's therapy. I'm going to be looking into it a bit more and I may see a practitioner for a consult. I will be sure to post about my experiences if I learn more and decide to move forward with it. I'm having really good results with the specific carbohydrate diet right now, so I'm a little reluctant to make any changes at the moment.

Gerson Therapy is a nice alternative, I say go for it! Just be warned you'll probably feel sick the first week or two due to detoxing tho its a good thing. Good luck! Keep us updated.

I spoke with couple of people (references from Gerson) and they said it is wonerful, only thing it is tough and need lot of will power.

I am wondering if anyone knows of someone who had not very good experiences with Gerson.

Hi Kalpana, it was someone that I met in person, not on the forum. I was in a vegetarian restaurant/biodynamic farming/health food store and I was asking questions about supplements, etc. I'm sorry- I don't know her name or contact info.

Bumping this up to see if anyone here has tried Gerson Therapy for their IBD. We are very seriously considering it with our 9 year old who is on elemental formula only for a year now and not getting better. In fact, his malabsorption is getting quite worse, and we are running out of options as he presents very atypically (has had IBD from birth).
