The early days of spring are always special here at the Institute, because not only do we welcome a year of new growth, we get ready to celebrate another year in the life of our founder. Today, Charlotte Gerson turns 91! (or, as she might prefer us to say, today is the first anniversary of [...]
Life at the Gerson Institute is always exciting, but last Thursday was especially exciting, since Phil Collen, the lead guitarist for Def Leppard, came for lunch. Actually, it was a little more than lunch. Collen came to our office yesterday with guitar maker Jake Willoughby to present the Institute with a $20,000 donation and give [...]

Even at 90 years old she can still blow a large room full of people away.
On Sunday, March 25th, 170 wellness-minded, forward-thinking, and positive people from across the globe gathered together in one place for a very special occasion: Charlotte Gerson’s 90th birthday celebration. It was a beautiful evening filled with warm tributes, good friends, music and lots of carrot juice!
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.
