Scope and Focus of Gerson Basics
Gerson Basics is intended to teach participants about the Gerson Therapy, which was specifically designed for people with serious illness or chronic degenerative conditions. This class does not provide specific dietary protocols for preventative health. The Gerson Institute does not have a specific protocol for preventative health, but you may read some information on that topic in our Gerson Guidelines for General Nutrition (pdf).
The participant will have the opportunity to ask questions pertinent to the information being presented, but our speakers will not be able to answer questions regarding personal situations or to discuss specific health conditions.
Home Set-up Trainer Certification Program is Currently Closed
This program is full and we are not accepting new applicants at this time.
Filming of the workshop is prohibited. However, the entire workshop will be streamed live for online participants, and cameras will be filming the event. After the workshop, we will email all attendees the link to view the recorded workshop, which will be accessible for approximately four months afterwards.
Books and supplies available at the workshop
- Books, educational materials and other products from the Gerson Institute’s bookstore will be available to purchase at the workshop.
- Supplements will not be sold at the class, but a listing of companies that sell supplements recommended for the Gerson Therapy can be found on our Supplies page.
- Cookware and juicers will be on display, but are not sold by the Gerson Institute. They are provided by approved, independent vendors and must be ordered directly from them. If you order a Norwalk juicer two weeks in advance of the class, you can arrange to pick it up at the Gerson Institute during the week of the workshop.
