Yes, each patient is required to bring at least one companion. The companion’s role is to give the patient support and to learn the therapy in order to continue assisting the patient once they return home. The companion receives room and board as well as three Gerson meals and juices daily, and the fee is included with clinic admission.
After leaving a licensed Gerson clinic, the prescribed Gerson Therapy protocol is continued at home for at least 24 months, with regular follow-up consultations by phone or web. During a follow-up consultation, clinic doctors evaluate recent lab work and any medical reports, adjusting the protocol as needed. Patients are more than welcome to return to a licensed Gerson clinic at a discounted rate.
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.
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.
