While I am not on the Gerson therapy, I really do love the idea of a soup filled with nutritious veggies that flushes out your kidneys and does your body a lot of goodness, so I decided to have a go at making this. This soup is absolutely delicious and flavourful despite not adding any spices or salt.

Dr Gerson's Hippocrates Soup

(Yields: 2 bowls, Serving: 2, Prep time: 15 mins, Cook time: 3 hrs)

Ingredients

  • 1 big or 2 small fresh organic leeks
  • 1 pound fresh organic potato or several small ones
  • 1 1/2 pounds organic fresh tomatoes
  • 1 large organic onion or 2 small onions
  • 1 sm/medium organic celery knob or 3/4 stalks organic celery
  • 1 small parsley root (if unavailable, can substitute 3/4 sprigs of organic parsley)

(I made mine with 3-4 stalks of celery, 1 yellow onion, 1 leek, 2 potatoes, 4 sprigs of parsley, 2 tomatoes and 3 cups purified water)

Instructions

Don’t peel any of the vegetables as many of the minerals and nutrients are stored directly beneath the skin.

Scrub carefully and cook SLOWLY at low heat for 3 hours with a small amount of clean pure water which just covers the vegetables.

You can add small amounts of fresh organic parsley and fresh pressed raw organic garlic to taste.

Gerson was able to heal terminally ill cancer patients through his therapy. He was also able to cure other patients with diseases such as tuberculosis, multiple schlerosis, diabetes, arthritis, allergies, ulcers, heart disease, arterioschlerosis, mental disease, kidney disease.

The renowned humanitarian and physician, Dr. Albert Schweitzer wrote that Gerson was a “medical genius who walked among us.”

(Instead of putting mine through a food mill which I didn’t have, I used my blender).
