Gerson Therapy Carrot Juice Recipe

Drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice multiple times per day is part of the Gerson Therapy diet’s daily menu for fighting cancer.


A typical Gerson patient’s regimen consists of making and drinking raw, organic juice once per every waking hour of the day, up to thirteen (13) 8 oz juices per day. Therefore, consuming large amounts of fresh, cold-pressed juice is a major component of the Gerson Therapy diet.

Why Carrot Juice?

Many people wonder why carrot juice is used as part of the Gerson diet. Gerson answers this and other questions about the juice-drinking guidelines by referring back to the results of Dr. Max Gerson’s thirty years of clinical practice. These results are outlined in the book, A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases, and are used as a roadmap to healing.


How To Make This Juice Recipe

Gerson has a few guidelines for making and drinking juice on the therapy program:

  • All produce MUST be organic
  • Stick to the three main juice recipes and optional breakfast citrus juice recipe
  • If you are missing a recipe ingredient, do not substitute, just omit it
  • Use a “two-stage” or “two-step” juicer that grinds, then presses (with the exception of juicing orange)
  • Juice oranges with a manual reamer-style citrus juicer
  • Make fresh juice every hour of the day
  • Consume juice as soon as it’s made, do not store it

Hello, I thought the high sugar content in carrots would not be advisable for cancer patients. Doesn't sugar of any kind feed the cancer?

Actually there are many therapies (including the Gerson Therapy) that recommend carrot juice for cancer patients because of the health benefits. If you get a chance, check out Chris Wark, who is a long time cancer survivor who also recommends drinking carrot juice https://www.chrisbeatcancer.com/

Every time I go out for my walk, when I am half way, I drink 20 oz of carrot juice that I juiced from carrots. It cools me down and helps with my recovery time.
