Guided Meditation

Also known as Guided Imagery or Guided Visualization. This experience is achieved by listening to the narration given by a practitioner guiding the visualization or “journey,” or by listening to an audiocassette tape or CD. In this way one follows specific suggestions or images directed towards a desired outcome. The experience allows one to travel within the mind to areas of beauty and peace, and further allows the individual to release any stress and tension. Even though it is a mental process on the conscious thinking level of the mind, it can enable one to experience more subtle states or perception. It is a therapeutic process, by which the individual may enhance the innate healing potential within. The power of the imagination evokes a positive mind/body response, and can over-ride any negative influences that may be prevalent. The healing powers of imagery can affect one physically, mentally and emotionally and tap into a rich reservoir of inner resources. This technique is also being used in sports and business as well as in many areas of healthcare.

The Gerson Therapy©

The Gerson Therapy was developed by Dr Max Gerson, in the 1920’s as a treatment for his own debilitating migraine headaches. He began to use this therapy with his patients who also suffered from migraines. One patient then reported how his skin Tuberculosis had much improved, this led Dr Gerson to develop the therapy further. At this time Tuberculosis was incurable. Later on, Dr Gerson found that the therapy was also showing remarkable results with cancer and other serious diseases. The Gerson Therapy is a powerful, natural treatment that boosts your body's own immune system so it is able to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, ME, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases.
