Certified Gerson Practitioners

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 who did not take the practitioner training modules or do not provide true Gerson care, so we cannot 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 Zoom. 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 you 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.

Dr. Annie Juneau, GPC, ND

It took a sport injury and a host of health issues, including a cancer scare, to convince this former tennis pro and model to pursue degrees in both Naturopathic Medicine and Hydrotherapy. In 2005, she founded her clinic, Vitacru, specializing in digestive health. She was introduced to coffee enemas while attending a hydrotherapy seminar. This serendipitous event would lead her to the Gerson therapy.

Now a Certified Gerson Practitioner with the Gerson Institute, Annie Juneau shares her passion, knowledge and experience with local clients at her Laval Clinic, and international clients through ZOOM videoconferencing, both in French and English.

Gerson Residents & Interns:

The following is the current list of approved Gerson Practitioner Residents and Interns. These names are for reference only. We ask that you do not contact them directly as your case needs to be evaluated by Dr. Donato first. Although you may see a practitioner in your state or country it does not mean that they are best suited to take your case. This is why it is evaluated first, to make sure you are assigned to the practitioner that is most experienced with your diagnosis. All of the residents and interns provide long-distance consultation via video-conference so even if the best practitioner to take your case is not located nearby you can still receive excellent care.

These practitioners provide services in the following languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Taiwanese, Romanian, Indonesian, Ukrainian, Russian, Armenian, Korean, Tagalog, Japanese & Tamil.


The practitioner-in-training in this class level has completed the first year of internship and has successfully passed the clinical competency level to move to the Gerson Resident status. At the end of the residency year in Module II, the resident will complete the final Clinical Competency exam to be eligible for the Certification examination process. These residents receive patient referrals through Dr. Miven Donato, our certified Gerson practitioner and head clinical instructor for Module II. Please see his contact information above for a referral.
