Charlotte Gerson, Morton Walker
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.
