Coaching Service

Gerson Institute Telephone Coaching ServiceIf you plan to start the Gerson Therapy at home, we highly recommend that you watch the Gerson Basics Online class and receive assistance from a Gerson coach as part of the Gerson Institute’s Coaching Service. Trained Gerson coaches can teach you how to develop your own personalized treatment plan on the Gerson Therapy and modify it, if necessary, as you progress on the therapy.

Coaching sessions are conducted by telephone or by Skype, and available in English or Spanish.

It is always best to begin the Gerson Therapy by going to a licensed Gerson clinic, where the doctors provide medical supervision and prescribe a personalized protocol based on your medical condition. If you are unable to attend a clinic and plan to do the Gerson Therapy at home, the Coaching Service can orient you on how to get started.

This program–and the Gerson Therapy in general–works best for people who are very motivated to learn, study and take responsibility for their own treatment.

Our coaches are not medical professionals, but they have extensive training and experience in providing non-medical assistance to people doing the Gerson Therapy


“The Coaching Service has been especially beneficial to me, as I am carrying out the Therapy primarily by myself. My coaching sessions are my lifeline- literally. Carol and Blanca have helped me nail down the techniques, organize my time, provide links and contact information for resources that I need, and most importantly, to know that many of the seemingly difficult and endless tasks CAN be done! I gained the confidence I needed to be successful, and now, 14 months later, it is going well and actually is EASY. I sure would recommend this wonderful service to all Gerson patients carrying out the Therapy at home! Thank you, coaching staff!”

– Cynthia Ison


“In 2008, I had been diagnosed with lupus nephritis and my kidney function was steadily creeping lower. My coach helped me to customize the supplements, enema and juicing schedule to suit my condition. She knew exactly what pages of Healing the Gerson Way to refer me to in order to answer any questions I might have. She kept in touch more frequently in the first few months of my Therapy, which was when I had the most questions.

Because each person’s illness is unique, I feel that the service the Gerson Institute offers, with experienced coaches, is essential to customizing the Gerson Therapy according to individual needs.”

— Christine Hunt


“A show of caring, loving, making the patient feel as if staff really cares and sees us as people, not just time quotas to fill their work day.”

— Karen Schaefer, North Carolina
