An inspirational journey of a boy who sets out to investigate the direct link between diet and disease and in the process discovers the world’s simplest cure for cancer: THE BEAUTIFUL TRUTH, written and directed by Steve Kroschel. This film form part of the Healing Truth Launch in South Africa under Truth Inc.
Hailing from a small town in Alaska, 15-year-old Garrett, lives on a wild animal reserve. After the accidental and tragic death of his mother, Garrett began spiraling downward. His father withdrew him from school to prevent him from flunking out, after which he was home-taught. Garrett’s father recognized his son’s interest in the dietary habits of their animals and assigned a book written by Dr. Max Gerson, which maintains that there is a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer.
Fascinated and curious, Garrett embarks on a cross-country road trip to investigate the merits of the Gerson Therapy, which introduces him to: Dr. David Kennedy, the past president of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and an expert on mercury in amalgam fillings; Dr. John Olney, a renowned neuroscientist, founder of the field of science known as “excitotoxicity” and leading researcher on the links between aspartame, MSG (monosodium glutamate) and brain cancer; and Dr. Hal Huggins, a former licensed dentist who now is a pioneer in identifying toxic dental materials, balancing body chemistry and exposing the dangers of fluoride. Garrett also meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how the multi-billion dollar medical industry has made it their mission to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures.
As chronic disease rates soar globally, THE BEAUTIFUL TRUTH shines a light on a little-known but a much-reviled (by the American Medical Association) cure for cancer known as the Gerson Therapy. In 1928, Gerson, a German Jew, discovered a therapy based on eliminating toxins that are ingested from air, water and food by consuming an all natural diet that boosts the immune system. With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy cites over 200 articles in respected medical literature and scientific documentation about thousands of people cured of their "incurable" diseases through the therapy program over the last 80 years. Dr. Albert Schweitzer said of Gerson, “I see in Gerson one of the most eminent medical geniuses to ever walk among us.” Despite the dismissal by the pharmaceutical and medical industries, the Gerson Therapy has proven to be effective and his legacy is carried on by his daughter Charlotte Gerson, who is also featured in the film.
