Bethany's Story (2013)

Available worldwide

Bethany’s Story is a true story of one girl’s journey from paralysis to walking through the healing power of food. As a 13-year-old girl she stepped on a nail and the subsequent tetanus shot caused her to become paralyzed from the waist down. Despite many years of searching for solutions – some of which made things dramatically worse – she was still confined to a wheelchair.

Then, almost miraculously, after she began a plant-based raw food diet as a way to improve her general sense of well-being, she began to recover the use of her feet and legs. After only months on this diet, she could not only walk again, but she could even run and dance.

This dramatic example, as witnessed by her loved ones and explained by medical experts, is an inspiring story to be shared with the world.

I remember as a kid going to basketball games and having the crowd chant "Eat 'em up, eat 'em up, eat 'em up Raw Raw Raw". Who knew how prophetic that cheer would be.
Thanks Bethany for sharing your story and showing your courage.

I'd love to send this film to a childhood friend who has been burdened with health issues now for 45 years or so. This information and Bethany presents tremendous inspiration for all.

This film is so inspiring, thank you Bethany and all involved in the making.
I have been unwell for some years, not been able to work for about two and a half years. I knew and still know, the Gerson Therapy Diet would help me heal but alas, I struggle with energy. If only we could check ourselves in to a local therapeutic clinic that understood the holistic necessity to heal, is good food and positive therapeutic activities, animals, nature, compassion and care.
