Take Action: Farm Bill’s “Farmer Assurance Provision” Threatens Organic Farming (UPDATE: “Monsanto Protection Act” Passes)
The Gerson Therapy’s effectiveness relies on the ability to use organic non-GMO non-chemically treated produce. It is vital that the rights of organic farmers is protected and their crops are in turn protected from cross contamination and “superweeds” created by GMOs, chemical pesticides and monocropping. The harder it becomes to obtain quality organic produce, the harder it will be to make the Gerson Therapy available to those seeking an alternative treatment to their ailments.
Our Director of Education Silvana Procopio received an exciting email from a Gerson supporter in Australia. Inspired by Team Gerson’s efforts to “run for real healing” here in San Diego, Michael participated in Relay for Life in Sylvania, Australia wearing his own Gerson shirt! Check out Michael’s email below to hear more about the race [...]

Today, our beloved founder Charlotte Gerson turns 90 years young. After Sunday’s birthday festivities, she’s having a relaxing day at home, visiting with her good friend (and coauthor) Beata Bishop, who flew in from London for the occasion. We’ll have more on Charlotte’s celebration later this week, but today I wanted to share something special [...]
To Gerson persons, Charlotte’s 90th birthday represents more than just Charlotte’s date of birth. It’s a time for us to reflect on her legacy and life’s work. She has had such an immense impact on so many people’s lives, and through her work with the Gerson Institute she has been able to share the Gerson Therapy with people across the world and touch the lives of thousands in need.
But what could you possibly get for the woman to whom we owe so much? Charlotte wants no trinkets or gag gifts, and–as I’m sure you know–cakes and sweets aren’t quite her cup of (chamomile) tea! Many of us were at a loss for ideas, but Anita Wilson, our endlessly imaginative Executive Director, came up with the perfect gift for Charlotte’s birthday: The Charlotte Gerson Legacy Orchard.
Documentaries are incredibly powerful. Documentaries can introduce you to new ideas and inspire you to change your life – or even the world! Many people who contact us here at the Institute point to one or several documentaries as their first exposure to the Gerson Therapy, or the catalyst for their decision to adopt a [...]
