The Gerson Institute’s programs include several training programs and support services designed to educate medical professionals, patients and their caregivers in the Gerson Therapy.
Gerson Basics Classes
Our Gerson Basics class educates participants about the essential, practical aspects of the Gerson Therapy. This class is recommended for current or prospective Gerson patients, their caregivers or loved ones who plan to assist them with the Therapy at home. You can attend the class here in San Diego (complete with Gerson meals!) or take the online version of the class–Gerson Basics Online–if you cannot attend in person.
Next class in San Diego: Dates TBA
Gerson clients can receive individual orientation to the practical aspects of carrying out the Gerson Therapy. with our staff by phone or by Skype via our Coaching Service. Our trained Gerson coaches can teach you to use the Gerson books, provide you with tips about cooking, kitchen equipment, etc. and answer questions on the Gerson Therapy.
Gerson Practitioner Training Program
We train medical professionals to be licensed as Gerson Practitioners. The training consists of two phases: Module I, a five-day seminar held in San Diego, and Module II, in which the doctor-in-training takes on three Gerson patients in their own practice, under the supervision of an experienced Gerson doctor. To be licensed as a Gerson Practitioner, you must complete both modules.
Cooking and Juicing Class
On the first Saturday of every month, we hold a one-day cooking class. Our staff teach attendees the ins and outs of the methods for preparing nutritious, plant-based meals and juices for the Gerson Therapy. After the class, attendees enjoy the healthy meal they have prepared!
Charlotte Gerson Health Restoration Center
This six-day retreat offers healthy individuals* the opportunity to experience the Gerson Therapy to detoxify and enhance their overall health. The Charlotte Gerson Health Restoration Center is located in a beautiful home in Encinitas, CA with an ocean view, and provides the perfect environment for restoration and relaxation.
* As this center is not a clinic, we cannot take guests with chronic illnesses, and a screening process is required.
Gerson Boot Camp
After taking our Gerson Basics Workshop, participants who want to deepen their understanding of the Gerson Therapy with hands-on experience can take the Gerson Boot Camp. This course provides a week-long, hands-on “in the trenches” training in the non-medical aspects of the Gerson Therapy that will provide participants with the experience they need to be able to help themselves, their family or friends with the Gerson Therapy.
