Enhanced Gerson Approach
The Gerson therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements.
Gerson Therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body’s essential defenses enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, high-quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells and the body can regenerate, become healthy and prevent future illness.
This is a powerful and natural treatment which boosts the body’s own immune system to heal: cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes.
However, the therapy does have its limits. There is no guarantee that any approach, conventional or alternative, will reverse every case of chronic disease or cancer. In some cases, the disease process is too far advanced and the immune system is too weakened to respond fully to the therapy.
Gerson therapy effectively treats a wide range of ailments because it restores the body’s incredible ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the Gerson Therapy treats the causes of most degenerative diseases: toxicity and nutritional deficiency.
This therapy regenerates the body, supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from about 15- 20 pounds of organically-grown fruits and vegetables daily. The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins.
All of the nutrients, enxymes and minerals come from the daily organic juices and the raw and cooked solid foods, which are generously consumed as well. These substances then break down diseased tissue in the body, while coffee enemas aid in eliminating toxins from the liver.
The Gerson Therapy’s intensive detoxification regimen eliminates these toxins from the body, so that true healing can begin.
The Gerson Diet Plan
The Gerson diet is plant-based and entirely organic. The diet is naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micro-nutrients, and extremely low in sodium, fats, and proteins. A typical diet for a Gerson patient consist in 3 main aspects:
- Thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot-apple and green-leaf juices prepared from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables every hour in
- a two-step juicer or a masticating juicer used with a cold pressed juicer.
- Three full plant-based meals, freshly prepared from organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal will include salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, grains and hippocrates soup and juice.
- Fresh fruit and vegetables available at all hours for snacking, in addition to the regular diet.
The main difference in our Functional Gerson Therapy is: individuality. We offer a Gerson Diet Plan created personally for each patient according to their specific needs and taking into consideration the following aspects:

In addition, our medical team uses the main principles of the traditional Gerson Therapy as the foundation of our Diet Plan but they additionally include other therapies and treatments, such as Detoxification and Immune Support, to ensure the best results possible.
Contrary to the belief that a full-scale hospital with such prestigious reputation will be very expensive, patients that have decided to get our treatments constantly tell us that the one of the main reasons they decided for us over others, is our straight-forward affordable price without any sneaky pricing gimmicks or up sales. Once you receive our treatment quote, that is final, and we won’t try to up sale or pressure you into anything you’re not comfortable with.
The treatment price varies for each patient, mainly because each patient’s needs, and medical circumstances are very different and require different attention. Once our doctors receive your medical information, they will assess your medical needs and if an outpatient plan is an option, this will be presented to you, saving you the costs of an in-hospital stay while still getting the same treatment you would as an in-patient.
