Being diagnosed with a terminal or degenerative disease is always a scary experience. Often times patients feel as though they are suffering the disease all alone, and often, conventional doctors simply give up hope for any chance of recovery. Whether you or a loved one are suffering from cancer, arthritis, chronic fatigue, diabetes, heart disease or any other of a wide variety of degenerative diseases, the
Gerson Institute is here to give you hope.

The patients illustrated here are a very small fraction of those treated successfully with the Gerson Therapy. Some have sought treatment at a Gerson Certified clinic, while others followed the Therapy at home. What each one of these people share in common is that each of them has broken free of their disease and discovered a better way to live.

Being diagnosed with a terminal or degenerative disease is always a scary experience. Oftentimes patients feel as though they are suffering the disease all alone, and often, conventional doctors simply give up hope for any chance of recovery. Whether you or a loved one are suffering from cancer, arthritis, chronic fatigue, diabetes, heart disease or any other of a wide variety of degenerative diseases, the
Gerson Institute is here to give you hope.

The patients illustrated here are a very small fraction of those treated successfully with the Gerson Therapy. Some have sought treatment at a Gerson Certified clinic, while others followed the Therapy at home. What each one of these people share in common is that each of them has broken free of their disease and discovered a better way to live. We hope you find some comfort in reading these cases, and encourage you to call us at the Gerson Institute if you would like to know about more cases that relate to your specific needs.

Case Studies

Subject: Testicular Cancer

Testicular Cancer
Case Study

Testicular cancer, also known as cancer of the testes, occurs when germ cells (the cells that become sperm) experience abnormal growth. Germ cells, like stem cells, have the potential to form any cell in the body. Normally this ability is dormant until the sperm fertilizes an egg. When germ cells become cancerous, they multiply unchecked, forming a mass of cells called a tumor, and invade normal tissue. Testicular cancer can metastasize, meaning that it can spread to other parts of the body. During metastasis cells leave the original tumor and migrate to other parts of the body through blood and lymph vessels, forming a new tumor. Testicular cancer metastasis most often involves the abdomen, lungs and brain. Testicular cancer can spread rapidly and is deadly if left untreated. Testicular cancer has a very fast onset. Testicular cancer grows rapidly, with tumors doubling in size in just 10 to 30 days.

There are two main types of testicular cancer: seminomas and non-seminomas.

  • Seminomas involve a uniform type of cell and spread less aggressively. Approximately 40% of testicular cancers are seminomas. When testicular cancer is first diagnosed, three-quarters of seminoma cases have not spread beyond the testes.
  • Non-seminomas involve a mixture of cell types, and are much more aggressive than seminomas. When testicular cancer is first diagnosed, two-thirds of non-seminoma cases have already spread to the lymph nodes.
