I’ve celebrated Mother’s Day for over thirty years, but I’d never once given a thought to how the holiday started. Part of me always wondered if it was secretly invented by Hallmark as a way to sell greeting cards. As it turns out, the truth is far more intriguing… especially for those of us […]
This cauliflower dish is a favorite among the staff at the Gerson Institute. It consists of cauliflower slow-cooked using Dr. Gerson’s method, topped with a creamy, slightly-sweet carrot sauce.
We know there is a great and ever-increasing need for Gerson practitioners. More patients than ever are beginning the Gerson Therapy from home, rather than at a clinic, and need oversight, guidance and qualified medical advice from someone fully trained and certified in the therapy. We’ve decided to make training new Gerson practitioners a priority here at the Institute, and we know it will be a great investment in the future of the Gerson Therapy. Our eventual goal is to have at least one Gerson practitioner in every state, and on every continent!
We were incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of a very special Gerson person last week. Jess Ainscough, the Wellness Warrior, passed away last week after living with a rare type of cancer called epithelioid sarcoma for the past seven years.

Soon afterwards, I was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer, and I underwent multiple surgeries and […]
This article originally appeared in the Fall 2014 issue of the Gerson Institute’s quarterly newsletter, the Healing News. Clay might provide us with the earliest example of using the earth’s resources to solve medical problems. When placed on the skin, clay draws out toxins to the outside surface of the clay (adsorption). These toxins then […]
Last week, we looked at the nasty chemicals lurking in feminine hygiene products. Today, let’s talk about what kinds of menstrual products you can use to replace the standard drugstore products that contain those troubling substances. There is virtually no good reason to use douches, wipes or deodorants; they do more harm than good! […]
Women’s Voices for the Environment released a report this year called “Chem Fatale” that examined the toxicity of various feminine hygiene products. They found that tampons, pads and other feminine hygiene products contain a number of unwanted chemicals and pesticides, and can be detrimental to women’s health.
