The Beautiful Truth - Monday Night Movie
“The Beautiful Truth,” a documentary about contemporary health hazards and alternative treatments, has been made in the hopes of appealing to children.
The documentary from filmmaker Steve Kroschel structures this film around a bright-eyed, home-schooled 15-year-old named Garrett, studying a controversial book written by Dr. Max Gerson, a physician who claims to have discovered a diet that's capable of curing cancer, as his first home-schooling assignment.
Garrett is a boy who has always been close to nature. He lives on a reserve with a menagerie of orphaned animals, and over the years he's become especially sensitive to the nutritional needs of the diet-sensitive animals he's charged with caring for.
Attempting to cope with the recent death of his mother, Garret sets out to
investigate the evils of the medical-industrial complex. Thus ensue lectures on genetically modified foods, water fluoridation, demonstrations of toxic fumes leaking from mercury-laced fillings and paeans to the benefit of frequent coffee enemas.
This last item is part of the Gerson therapy, a strict dietary regimen of organic produce and fresh juice proposed as the miracle cure for a number of chronic diseases by the German doctor Max Gerson. Discredited by the medical establishment but passionately defended by its followers, who claim it can cure cancer, the Gerson therapy is based on fundamental principles of letting your food be your medicine.
Is Dr. Gerson's therapy truly the legitimate, alternative cure it appears to be?
In order to find out the truth behind this long-suppressed treatment, Garrett interviews not only Dr. Gerson's family members, but various doctors, skeptics, and cancer patients as well. His studies completed and his findings revelatory, Garrett now sets out to tell the entire world about The Gerson Miracle.
Garrett quest includes research into all the nefarious ways in which the billion-dollar medical/agricultural/pharmaceutical complex, with the full complicity of the American Medical Assn., creates dependencies on costly but ineffective treatments while additives adulterate America's food and water supplies.
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. This documentary reveals a simple truth to healing ourselves.
Questions and answers will follow the movie session with a special GUEST SPEAKER.
