I want to know if my illness is treatable with the Gerson Therapy ▼

First, please read our Contraindications and Cautions for the Gerson Therapy page. That page lists all the known diagnoses and complications that are not treatable with the Gerson Therapy, and which diagnoses we have found to be very difficult to treat with the Gerson Therapy.

If your diagnosis is listed on this page, it is unlikely that the Gerson Therapy would be a good choice for you, and we would encourage you to seek out other treatment options.

Our Education Team can share some information about whether or not patients have come to us with a particular condition of not, and whether they have had successful outcomes. However, simply telling us an individual patient’s diagnosis is usually not sufficient information for us to know if that they are a good candidate for the Gerson Therapy.

There are many factors that can affect whether or not an individual patient will be able to do the therapy--even if they have a condition that is often treatable with the therapy--so that evaluation needs to be made by a doctor who has access to your medical records, recent blood work and any other scans or tests you have had, to get a clearer picture of your overall health and general condition.

We strongly recommend having your case evaluated by a certified Gerson practitioner; either one in private practice or by applying for treatment at one of the clinics. For more information about Gerson practitioners and applying to a licensed Gerson treatment center, please read more at the links below:

I want to become a patient at a licensed Gerson clinic ▼

The Gerson Institute currently licenses two clinics that practice the Gerson Therapy: The Health Institute of Tijuana in Mexico, and the Gerson Health Centre in Hungary. You can find general information on licensed Gerson clinics at the link below:

There is an application process for each clinic, in which the patient submits a comprehensive set of medical records and documentation in order for the doctors at the clinic to review their case and determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for the Gerson Therapy, and therefore if they can be admitted to the clinic. Each clinic is independently owned and operated, and has their own admissions process and policies.

For information about the Gerson clinic in Mexico, please read the information at the link below:

On this page, you can download the patient application for the clinic in Mexico, which has more detailed information and a complete set of instructions for how to submit your application to be reviewed by the doctors at the clinic. The Gerson Institute’s Education Specialists act as liaisons between the Mexican clinic and the patient, and assist applicants through every step of the application and admissions process.

The Gerson Health Centre in Hungary conducts its own application process entirely independently of the Gerson Institute. To obtain an application for this clinic, you will need to contact the Gerson Health Centre directly; visit their website at or email You can read more about the Gerson Health Centre at the link below:

If you are unable to attend a licensed Gerson clinic, we strongly recommend working with a certified Gerson practitioner for medical guidance. Click here for information about certified Gerson practitioners.
