All I think about is cancer….the treatment options….part 2 of 7

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Aug 10, 2011

I have been in the early stages of planning my next huge project. We are going to tackle the subject of how to educate people about NON-TOXIC TREATMENT OF CANCER.

I will be visiting quite a few clinics that specialize in “alternative health” means to treat cancer without chemotherapy and radiation. Some employ a raw-food diet. Others focus more on spiritual healing. I am going to check in and undergo their treatment. Utilizing modalities that heal the “broken” immune system and support it to do its natural work to eradicate cancer cells.

I will study and report on efficacious ways to eliminate cancer that do not involve attacking and weakening the immune system. We will build a web site, as well as film a documentary (with Kels, my Green Smoothie Girl Makeover partner–we have wrapped filming and are in production with our TV show).

I am scheduled to check into some of the clinics below and hope to get into the rest, for my research. If you are a cancer patient, or know one, who would like to go with me to one of these clinics, PLMK by writing support123 at Although you’ll need to pay for your stay, I’m pretty sure you’ll get the royal treatment, going with me to experience and study what they do! I would like to document your experience with the various methods. Here’s my wish list—and since I’ve not yet gotten into 3 of them, also PLMK if you have the ear of a director at any of these clinics!

The Gerson Institute (California / Mexico)

Creative Health Institute (Michigan)

Oasis of Hope Hospital, Contreras Clinic (Mexico)

An Oasis of Healing (Arizona)

Optimum Health Institute (California)

Tree of Life (Arizona)

Hippocrates Institute (California)

We all have cancer cells. It’s just a matter of whose immune function goes “down for the count” so that cancer gets the upper hand.

These clinics practice radically different approaches from modern oncology’s modalities, which are limited to technology, chemicals, and radiation.

I will be writing about CANCER for the next several days. Stay tuned. Virtually everyone reading this blog has been touched by cancer. I’m told it’s usually not a terrible way to die–rather peaceful, and you have time to get your affairs in order and say goodbye.

My observation of the practice of oncology, though, is that it is brutal, inhumane, its side effects often lethal. It isn’t exactly true to the Hippocratic Oath: “First, Do No Harm.”

    Robin: so happy your doing this study. Someone mentioned going to True North with Dr. Goldhammer. I was there about 8 years ago to get rid of a large fibroid tumer. I was there 6 weeks. 4 weeks of water fasting. Then 2 weeks of juicing. It worked. I do now though prefer juicing and green smoothies. Water fasting is very drastic. So happy with what I have learned since then and love your smoothie program. When I went to True North I knew nothing about raw foods. Come such a long way. I will love hearing about your study. Keep up the good work!


  2. Hi Robyn,

    I was diagnosed in Feb 2011 with early stage breast cancer. My doctor recommended a partial mastectomy, chemo and radiation. I declined treatment and started the Gerson Therapy in Tijuana, Mexico in March 2011. I am still on the therapy (almost completed 6 months) and am feeling quite well. I have been blogging my experience ( and have another follow-up at the end of this month to see how the tumours are doing. I feel confident that Gerson is working as I am providing it the tools to heal itself.

    Thank-you for your great website and information.

    Kind Regards.

    I have lupus and am trying hard to stay off of steroids and anti-malarial drugs. Thanks to finding your site, Robyn, between the green smoothies and alkaline water, I have seen a big improvement. 6 months ago I could barely get out of bed. That doesn’t work when you have 4 kids to chase around. I still have a long way to go to heal and a lot of bad food habits and addictions to overcome, but I am convinced that what I have been putting in my body for the past 30+ years is what put me in this physical hell. When I talked to my doctor about diet, he shrugged and said it wouldn’t make much difference. I now know he was wrong. I am a nurse with the whole American health system and all the drugs that go along with it firmly entenched in my brain. I am slowly mucking it all out. I recently watched the movie “Food Matters” which led me to research Gerson. A couple days later, I read your post about your plans. I’m looking forward to the results. I’m seriously considering their program myself. I consider the day I found your website divinely inspired and a huge blessing in my life. I’ve been spreading the green smoothie love ever since. Thank you!

    Robyn, I will email you with pro’s and con’s of my experience with Gerson. I just want people to know that doing the gerson therapy is not easy at all, and actually almost impossible to do everything they recommend. No matter how people choose to heal their cancer (unhealthy body) it’s not easy. I DO NOT recommend going to their clinic in Mexico; get their books or hire a gerson practitioner instead. The clinic was $11,000.00 (way overpriced especially for TJ Mexico); norwalk juicer $2,400.00 (for the amount of juices you have to do over a long period of time, well worth it), they have a van to transport you to clinic and charge you a ridiculous expense fee… (fortunately I live in San Diego, so my hubby and I walked across the border and took a $10.00 taxi to the clinic) etc , etc. etc…, and that’s before even starting the 2 year treatment and eating and juicing; much more to share over my 2+ year journey now with hindsight and being proactive in my healing through research, research and research, and finding what worked for me; I wished the lymphoma society would have donated to me to help me pay for this very, very expensive way of healing instead of to the “traditional ways”; and donate to all of us who are using “alternative” ways of healing, because initially none of the “alternative clinics” are cheap

    Oh I wholeheartedly support nutrition in dealing with cancer. Being a nurse and one who infuses chemo on cancer patients, I find that none of them are educated in any type of alternative treatment or nutritional therapy. I have made it my goal to teach them the benefits of healing through nutrition. Unfortunately so many of them are of the mindset that only chemo and whatever the doctor says are the only way they can be healed. What a very sad thing to believe! I personally know otherwise, but one has to have the faith to believe in something other than using poison to kill a disease. Good luck with all of your efforts! Boy would I love the opportunity to jump on that bus and be there with you! You go girl! Cindy

    My mother has primary mylofibrosis,scarring of the bone marrow. I am watching her die before my eyes and it is slowly tearing me apart. I am holistic and have tried diet and greens for her but she no longer produces red blood cells so nothing is helping. She is going on an experimental drug this week. I am scared to death. I would gladly spend my last dollar if I knew a clinic which can help her before its to late. She is 78 years old. I am desperate.

  8. Get in touch with Jess from Wellness Warrior. She is doing great on the Gerson & her mum is doing it too.

    Robyn, I noticed you are planning on coming to Michigan the end of this month. Is there any chance you might be able to speak when you are here. I have so many people that I would love to bring to one of your classes. Please consider it!!!

    @Rose. You might find the information in Outsmart Your Cancer by Tayna Pierce very helpful.

    @Greensmoothiegirl- You go girl! This is information the public MUST know about. People who have cancer have options besides chemo, radiation and surgery! Have you seen the documentary “Cancer: The Forbidden Cures” by Massimo Mazzuco? The cures for cancer have been discover more than 80 years ago and the FDA, NCI and AMA have successfuly shut them down all for the love of money.. Its time for the public to know the truth. Chemo only benefits 5% of patients and more people die from the treatment than the disease while Big Pharm makes the $. It is sick and wrong.. God bless your efforts and you will bless many. The truth shall set you free..

    We are so inculcated as a society that doctors are ‘gods’ and that what they say is the absolute truth.

    I know from personal experience that many issues, including cancer, can be brought back to a balance within the body using alternative methods rather than going a medical route.
