Certified Gerson Practitioners

Print Friendly

Certified Gerson Practitioners are fully trained by the Gerson Institute to practice the Gerson Therapy. All certified Gerson practitioners have completed both Module I and Module II of our Practitioner Training Program.

The Gerson Institute carefully evaluates its certified practitioners to ensure that they are providing the true Gerson Therapy, and that they provide exemplary care for their patients. Unfortunately there are several doctors that use the Gerson name without providing true Gerson care, so we can not certify them or recommend them for patients seeking treatment on the Gerson Therapy. If you are considering pursuing the Gerson Therapy with a practitioner who is not listed on this website, please contact the Gerson Institute first to ensure that they are certified to practice the Gerson Therapy.

A Gerson Practitioner will provide guidance on an out-patient basis. It is recommended to have in-person office visits (for at least the first consultation, and as often as possible for follow-up visits), although in some cases they will provide long-distance consultation services by phone or Skype. The Gerson Practitioner will request medical records and current lab work and do a thorough evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for them to guide on the Gerson Therapy.

Patients should work with their practitioner for the duration of their time on the Gerson Therapy. For a serious condition such as cancer, patients will typically need to be on the Gerson Therapy for a minimum of two years.
