The Gerson Support Group UK (GSG) is a UK Registered Charity (No.1063646), founded by recovered cancer patients in 1993. We maintain a Helpline (+44 (0) 1494 792 463), and provide information, practical training and support to patients and their carers. We all work as volunteers, and if you would like to join us to support the GSG, we would be delighted to hear from you.

At present there are two Gerson Therapy Centres, one in Budapest, Hungary, and one in Tijuana, Mexico.

The Gerson Therapy is a scientifically evolved natural protocol which utilizes the body’s own healing mechanism in the treatment and alleviation of chronic degenerative illness. Most therapies, both conventional and alternative, tend to treat only symptoms, while ignoring the underlying cause of the disease. The Gerson Therapy does the opposite, by concentrating on the true cause of the disease while not neglecting its symptoms; it rebuilds the body’s debilitated immune system, thus enabling the organism’s built-in self-healing power to restore health.

As an information centre, the GSG supplies all the important books and DVDs on the Gerson Therapy. It also distributes its own publications compiled by former patients, which address practical issues for people starting out on the Therapy. Also available are back copies of Coffee’n’Carrots, the GSG’s newsletter, containing articles and personal stories related to the Gerson programme. Click here for details.

Please Note: the GSG does not offer any medical advice, treatment or diagnosis, and interested individuals should seek qualified help before embarking on the therapy.
