The Beautiful Truth

The title of the documentary “The beautiful truth” hit me straight between the eyes. Most of my life I believed that what doctors, lawyers, teachers and even my own parents told me was fact, no doubt about it. It took me most of my 42 years to realise that fact may just be dependant on ones experience, education, beliefs and upbringing. Slowly I learnt to re-educate myself, to trust my gut more and to devour books and books of information reading and absorbing what resonates. Below are 2 short clips of documentaries featuring individuals who find the courage to change course, share what they believe and swim against the current.

Side Effects:

A lighthearted but earnest look at the pharmaceutical industry from the point of view of Karly, a drug sales rep growing more and more conflicted about her role in health care. As Karly climbs the corporate ladder, she manages to keep her conscience at bay until a shocking revelation finally gives her the courage to stand up and do the right thing.

The Beautiful Truth:

Raised on a wildlife reserve in Alaska, 15-year old Garrett was interested in the dietary habits of their animals. After the tragic death of his mother, Garrett’s father decided to home-school his son and assigned a book written by Dr. Max Gerson that proposes a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer.

Years later, fascinated, Garrett embarks on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures.

It has been said that more people live off cancer than die from it. The Beautiful Truth is a movie that can put a stop to this travesty. A practical guide to the intensive nutritional treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases that many would consider to have been impossible to obtain. Thanks to the work of Max Gerson, M.D., and his daughter, Charlotte Gerson, this knowledge is readily available.

Max Gerson cured cancer in some of his patients. He did so with a strict fat-free, salt-free, low-protein, essentially vegetarian dietary regimen, based on great quantities of fresh vegetable juice, supplements, and systemic detoxification.

Like one of my favorite sayings, “only dead fish swim with the current”
