When Garrett’s mother suffers a tragic and untimely death, the boy falls into a dangerous downward spiral and nearly flunks out of school. Increasingly concerned for Garrett’s well-being and determined to strengthen their bond despite the many challenges on the horizon, his father makes the decision to begin home-schooling the distressed teen.

Is Dr. Gerson’s therapy truly the legitimate, alternative cure it appears to be?

His studies completed and his findings revelatory, Garrett now sets out to tell the entire world about The Gerson Miracle.
