It is with great sorrow that we report the passing of Charlotte Gerson. But it is with great joy that we celebrate and reflect upon her life. She was a charismatic pioneer of natural health and continues to be an inspiration to all who have turned to nutrition as an alternative treatment for chronic diseases.
Born in 1922 to Dr. Max Gerson, Charlotte has been a driving force behind the natural health movement. As a young girl, she was diagnosed with bone tuberculosis, considered incurable at the time. She was healed after following her father’s groundbreaking therapy, now known as the Gerson Therapy. This therapy utilizes a strict diet of organic food, juices, and supplements to activate the body’s natural immunity and detoxification pathways.
When her father passed away, Charlotte was determined to continue his work and dedicated her life to providing education and training to those battling cancer and other chronic diseases. In 1977, Charlotte founded the Gerson Institute, a non-profit organization committed to sharing the truth about the body’s natural ability to heal. She has also written several books, including an updated version of her father’s groundbreaking work, “A Cancer Therapy: Results of 50 Cases.”
Over the years, her integrity and determination have established her as one of the founders of alternative medicine. Today, we continue her legacy and celebrate her commitment to the truth. The human body has been endowed with remarkable abilities to fight and defend against disease. The right nutrition can help to activate these natural defenses, offering an alternative to toxic treatments.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Charlotte’s family, and we wish them well as they continue to further her cause. To learn more about Charlotte’s work, the Gerson Institute, and the Gerson Therapy, visit their website.
