Conners Modified Gerson – Basic 701


Here is the formula for this:

“Every other day, 2 tablespoons of castor oil are given by mouth at about 5:30 a.m.”—Gerson Primer, 3rd ed., p. 3.

Gerson Institute recommends that a cup of black coffee (coffee without cream or sugar) with raw sugar in it, be drunk immediately afterward. It is said that this will stimulate the stomach to empty the castor oil quickly into the intestine. [Our note: There are those who are quite successful in taking the castor oil without following it with a drink of coffee. Notice that, in the following statement, Gerson calls drink- ing coffee a possible alternate procedure.]

Conners Modified Gerson - Basic 701“Some patients do not tolerate castor oil well after breakfast. An alternate protocol is as follows: 7 a.m.—2 large tablespoons castor oil, 1 cup cof- fee with brown sugar—7:05 a.m., coffee enema.”— Max Gerson, A Cancer Therapy, p. 247.

[Our note: Keep in mind that coffee taken by mouth produces significant physiological harm.]

“A cup of coffee taken by mouth has an entirely different effect . . It heightens the reflex response, lowers the blood pressure, increases heart rate, per- spiration, causes insomnia and heart palpita- tion.”—Max Gerson, A Cancer Therapy, p. 191.


This procedure is done 5 hours after taking the castor oil:

“At about 10:30 a.m., 5 hours after your castor oil by mouth, the castor oil enema . . [is taken]. The castor oil should be poured down the enema tube first. Insert and instill the castor oil until no more remains in the bucket. Close the plastic ring. Add the 8 oz. of coffee concentrate and 16 oz. of distilled water at body temperature. As the warmed solution flows though the tube, it will wash the bal- ance of the castor oil into the intestinal tract. You may retain this for a short time, but it is not re- quired.”—Gerson Primer, 3rd ed., p. 3.

For optimum results, swish a bar of non-deter- gent soap in the bucket, This will help the castor oil mix with the water better.
