Health Institute de Tijuana Clinic

Health Institute de Tijuana, located in a coastal town of Tijuana, Mexico, is the only clinic in Mexico licensed by the Gerson Institute to provide the Gerson Therapy for patients beginning their healing journey. Starting the treatment in a clinic allows patients time to adjust to their new lifestyle while under medical care and gives time for a Gerson practitioner to evaluate the patient’s response to the treatment in person.


The following measures have been implemented to ensure a safe environment for patients and staff:

  • Running one, two-week session per month.
  • Limited number of patients during sessions.
  • A negative COVID-19 viral or antibody test must be submitted with application.
Please contact us at [email protected] or at 1-858-694-0707 for details.

COST: $5,500.00 USD per week. Includes accommodations and three Gerson meals for one support companion.

ADMISSION: To begin the admission process, each patient must apply for eligibility (see instructions below). A two-week minimum stay is required for most cases, while some may qualify for a one-week stay. Admissions reserved more than 30 days in advance will require review of updated lab work.

  • One-on-one support from an experienced Gerson Institute Education Specialist throughout the application and admission process, including coordination of transportation to-and-from the clinic, and assistance with Gerson-approved resources and educational materials.

Next Steps

Case Assigned + Application Reviewed

The case is assigned to one of our Education Specialists who will act as your liaison during the application and admission process. All applications are evaluated on an individual basis, and some cases may not be eligible for treatment. 

Clinic Application Evaluation:

Once the application is complete, your Education Specialist sends it to the clinic for evaluation by the clinic doctors. This process takes between 2-4 business days.

Application Response:

Once the Education Specialist receives the doctor’s response, they will contact you by phone and/or email. If your case is eligible, your Education Specialist will assist you through the admission process by arranging your dates, scheduling your shuttle pickup and more. You can also have a 15 minute phone consultation with a Gerson Practitioner at the clinic prior to admission.

If your case cannot be safely treated at the clinic, an explanation will be provided as to why, and additional resources may be provided.

Will I continue to work with my local physician?

Over time, your treatment plans – whether they include alternative, conventional, or both – may change based on your response to a particular treatment. Additionally, the Gerson Therapy is a treatment system that takes place primarily at home, even for those who attend a licensed Gerson clinic. For these reasons, we advise maintaining a positive rapport with your local physician.

What if my case is not eligible?

A primarily plant-based diet, juices, and detoxification with coffee enemas (if safe) can still support the body, improve, and in some cases, prolong quality of life. A Naturopath or holistic physician may be able to offer guidance on nutritional support along with other healing modalities.
