Charlotte Gerson

Born in Germany, Charlotte Gerson was the youngest daughter of Dr. Max Gerson and assisted her father with translating and writing papers, making rounds and nursing patients. When Dr. Gerson died in 1959, Charlotte kept her father’s discoveries alive by keeping his book A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases in print and educating the public about the Gerson Therapy. As a result of her work, public interest for the Gerson Therapy began to grow.

Charlotte Gerson Charlotte founded the Gerson Institute in 1976 and helped open first Gerson clinic in Mexico. She continued lecturing across the world, writing and publishing books on the Gerson Therapy, giving countless TV and radio interviews and personally communicating with countless people facing difficult health decisions. She continues to guide hundreds of people along their healing journey and inspire thousands around the world.

    Dear Charlotte,
    Thank you so much for everything you do. I hope to someday become a doctor and I promise to do everything in my power to help my patients in any way that I can.  Food is medicine; not enough people know it, though. I will try my best to carry this message into future generations.
