The Class

The Gerson Hands On Workshop was designed to build off of the Gerson Basics Online class to provide patients and their loved ones with a venue for actual hands-on learning. The total class size consists of approximately 30 participants, and is segmented into smaller break-out sessions throughout the day. These small groups will give each participant a chance to make a more meaningful connection with Gerson Institute staff, and like-minded participants. Each day starts with a nutritious breakfast prepared by Gerson chefs, followed by workshops and lectures covering the following topics:

Cooking the Gerson way

Learn the Gerson slow-cooking method and experience how to prepare Gerson Therapy meals consisting of beautiful salad ingredients, creatively enticing dressings, savory Hippocrates soup (a staple on the therapy) and cooked vegetables primed to perfection using only organic, whole-food ingredients, love and care.

Healing Tools
