Dr. Max Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte Gerson, founded the Gerson Institute in 1977, to spread awareness of the Gerson Therapy and make it available to people across the world. The Gerson Institute is the true source of information on the original, proven Gerson Therapy.

Charlotte Gerson is currently 93 years of age, and has mostly retired from the The Gerson Institute, based in San Diego as well as The Gerson Therapy Clinic in Playas de Tijuana, Mexico. Now, the daily activities of the clinic are handled by the physician-owners of the clinic, who by now have over 30 years’ experience treating and handling Gerson Therapy patients. The Gerson Institute is headed by Ms. Anita Wilson, Executive Director, and a capable and responsible Board of Directors of their own.

Born in Bielefeld, Germany, Charlotte Gerson and her family fled the Nazi Holocaust to Austria, where at age 12, she was diagnosed with bone tuberculosis, a normally fatal disease. Her father, Dr. Max Gerson, started her on The Gerson Therapy which he had developed in Germany, and which had a shining success record against tuberculosis of all kinds. The Gerson Therapy is an all-natural therapy that boosts the body’s immune system to fight off any harmful disease or injury. When Austria fell into the Nazi orbit, the family relocated to France, then, later, to London. From there, they moved to New York City, where Charlotte helped her father run his clinic for very seriously ill patients. She attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts for two years before leaving college to marry Irwin Straus.

When Dr. Gerson died in 1959, there was nobody to champion the Therapy or sell the books that Gerson had published, so Charlotte took up her father’s banner by default, lecturing, selling books, and eventually setting up and training staff for Gerson Therapy clinics in the US and Mexico. These clinics have helped thousands of patients with cancer and other “incurable” diseases to recover their good health and return to long and productive lives with their families.

Dr. Morton Walker attended New York University, 1947 to 1949. He graduated with the degree of Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.) from the Illinois College of Podiatric Medicine, attending 1949 to 1953.
Previously licensed in three states, he practiced podiatry for over 16 years and was awarded 18 medals by the American Podiatry Association for podiatric research and medical writing during this time. Then he discontinued his foot care practice and became a medical journalist fulltime, freelance for the next 42 years. During this period he had 91 health consumer books published plus more than 5,000 clinical journal articles and magazine articles printed. His work includes the writing of 4,000-word monthly columns on natural and nontoxic methods of healing for 32 years for the Townsend Letter, The Examiner of Alternative Medicine.
Designated as “The World’s Leading Medical Journalist on Holistic Medicine,” he was presented with Humanitarian Awards by The American College for the Advancement in Medicine, The American Cancer Control Society, and The Institute of Orthomolecular Medicine.
