Gerson Retreat Advanced Therapy Wellness Program
Is a detoxification and rebuilding program. It consists of flooding the body daily with nutrients from about 15-20 POUNDS of organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables daily. We offer our advanced nutritional therapies to support the detoxification process. As a result of detoxification and increased oxygenation, cellular regeneration of all organs occurs, in particular that of the liver, and the immune system to restore them to its optimal function. This program is similar to those clinics in Mexico offering the same program.
The Wellness Retreat is a nutritional program that utilizes the body’s own mechanism in the treatment of chronic debilitating illness. The Gerson Retreat is dedicated to the healing and prevention of chronic and degenerative diseases.

The nutritional program consists of 10-13 fresh organic vegetable juices, 3 meals per day made of raw and cooked food and supplemental vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

Throughout our lives
Our bodies are being filled with a variety of disease and cancer causing pollutants. These toxins reach us through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the medicines we take and the water we drink. As more of these poisons are used every day and cancer rates continue to climb, being able to turn to a natural, detoxifying treatment is not only reassuring, but necessary.
Our Therapy is a powerful, natural treatment
That boosts your body’s own immune system to support your body if you have cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. One aspect of our Therapy that sets it apart from most other treatment methods is its all-encompassing nature. An abundance of nutrients from up to thirteen fresh, organic juices are consumed every day, providing your body with a super dose of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. The enemas aid in eliminating the lifelong buildup of toxins from the liver.
With its whole-body approach to healing
Our therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging side-effects.
Although the philosophy of cleansing and reactivating the body is simple
The Therapy is a complex method of treatment requiring significant attention to detail. While many patients have made full recoveries practicing on their own, for best results we encourage starting and practicing at the retreat center and taking back what you have learned so that you can continue with it at home.
It is rare to find cancer, arthritis, or other degenerative diseases in cultures considered “primitive” by Western civilization.
Is it because of diet? The fact that degenerative diseases appear in these cultures only when modern packaged foods and additives are introduced would certainly support that idea. Degenerative diseases can be brought on by toxic, degraded food, water and air.
Our Program and Therapy seeks to regenerate the body to health
Supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from up to 20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. Most is used to make fresh raw juice, one glass every hour, up to 13 times per day. Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as oxygen deficiency in the blood contributes to many degenerative diseases.
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.
Degenerative diseases render the body increasingly unable to excrete waste materials adequately, commonly resulting in liver and kidney failure. To prevent this, the 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.
No treatment works for everyone, every time.
Anyone who tells you otherwise is not giving you the facts. We know that when you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening ailment, choosing the best strategy for fighting your illness can be a bewildering task. Everyone claims to have either “the best treatment”, or “the only therapy that works.” In most cases your trusted family physician only has knowledge of conventional treatments, and is either unaware of, or even hostile toward alternative options. No matter how many opinions you receive on how to treat your disease, you are going to make the final decision on what to do, and you must be comfortable with your decision. Choose a treatment that makes the most sense to you.
Most therapies, conventional or alternative treat only the individual symptoms while ignoring what is ultimately causing the disease.
The reason that our therapy is effective with so many different ailments is because it restores the body’s incredible innate ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the therapy treats the cause of the disease itself. Although we feel the therapy is one of the most comprehensive foundational treatment programs for disease, we don’t claim it will cure everything or everyone.
Who Qualifies to Come to the Retreat: We accept most people who want to come and improve their overall health and life. We want to make sure that you are safe to travel and partake in our advanced programs. Patients must be able to eat, drink and eliminate normally, as well as be able to travel and take care of their personal needs. If you have major health concerns, and need considerable assistance, then you will need a more thorough evaluation to allow you in. For those in hospice care or in other advanced care systems, our retreat is not the right place for you. We are not a hospital or advanced care facility. All individuals have to take care of their own self care and general needs such as bathing, eating, drinking, dressing, going to the restroom, as well as be able to self administer enemas. We are not a 24-hour care facility. Staff and doctors are only here during the day for assistance and guidance.
The diet is naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micro-nutrients, extremely low in sodium and fats.
The following is a typical daily diet for a patient on the full wellness therapy regimen:
- Up to thirteen glasses of fresh, raw carrot, apple and green-leaf juices prepared from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
- Three full vegetarian meals, freshly prepared from organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal will include salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, vegetable soup and juice.
- Fresh fruit available at all hours for snacking, in addition to the regular diet.
- 3-5 Coffee Enemas daily in the privacy of your own room.
A very important part of the therapy is frequent detoxification of the tissues and blood. This is accomplished through a variety of means, first and foremost through the use of coffee enemas 3-5 times daily.
The scientific basis for the use of coffee enemas is well documented. Patients report that the enemas decrease pain and hasten healing. This has been shown to enhance the body’s ability to eliminate toxic residues from environmental, chemotherapeutic, and other sources.
In addition, digestive enzymes serve to enhance absorption of nutrients as well as assist in the elimination of damaged tissue.
Motivate, Empower, support and coach individuals to make positive changes in there lives, and to take responsibility for their health.
Our Clinical Therapeutics
The clinical approach consists of detoxifying and nourishing the body, the mind and the heart. The most elegant approach is based on fasting and nutritional therapy. Fasting on water or juices or a raw food diet is the most radical and the most efficient way to treat and prevent most illness. The nutritional therapy is a stepping stone to address mental, emotional and spiritual issues that may create imbalance. To achieve this goal the following methods can be used: meditation, awareness techniques, guided imagery, movement. Adjuvant therapies such as hydrotherapy, intravenous therapies, vitamin supplements, botanical medicine and homeopathy may be used in conjunction with the nutritional therapy or afterwards.
The Information contained on this website is for educational purposed only. We do not claim to cure any disease. We do not offer chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, of which claim to treat and cure cancer. Our approach to health is through education, diet, nutrition and cleansing the body back to better health. Through this, the body and immune system will support the body to the level and ability that it can.
Medical Management and Care – Guests are required to be self-reliant in order to participate in the program. Patients are expected to be able to take care of themselves while at the retreat, go up and down stairs, and be able to take care of all their personal daily needs. If the patient needs additional care and support, the guest has to provide this for themselves. Everyone participating in the health and medical educational program at the Sedona Wellness Retreat will undergo an assessment, examination, and monitoring daily from our medical staff. This is part of the program and is included in the cost. This medical package includes the initial intake exam, the cost involving the doctors’ time in ordering and reviewing laboratory tests, meeting with and directing the staff, daily follow up visits and consultations, reviewing daily chart notes, conducting an exit interview, and phone/email consult after departure.
Gerson Institute – There are a number of reasons as to why we are not licensed through the Non-Profit Gerson Institute Educational Group in San Diego. The main concern is that Gerson Therapy claims to have treated and cured cancer. So stating the Gerson Therapy means that it is a treatment that cures cancer. This is not allowed in the US and does not have any double blind placebo controlled studies and millions of dollars spent to publish this type of work. So the FDA does not approve Gerson therapy or similar therapies for the treatment of cancer as well as other diseases. That is why most clinics go to Mexico. Another reason is that we also offer other treatments and modalities such as water fasting, juice fasting and customized cleansing programs.
We can offer a similar approach, and utilize the works of Dr. Max Gerson, use the same modality, offer the meals, juices and coffee enemas, but we are not allowed to use or promote the name, especially in regards to the treatment cancer. We are not allowed to state that we are treating or curing cancer. This is Not what we do. We do Not treat cancer. This program supports the body has a whole through the education, diet and nutrition that you would receive while here. Some of the medical staff and supportive staff have taken the Gerson Institutes educational and training programs, and the physician Gerson training module 1. The retreat group has been offering wellness retreats for the past 10 years. The doctors are Naturopathic Physicians that extensive training and experience in this method of therapy and care. This is what we specialize in as well as work with each individual to customize the treatment, modalities and therapies that are right for them.
The doctors will order and monitor blood levels and have daily follow up consultations with each patient that comes to the retreat. We are here for you and we look forward to working with you towards a healthier tomorrow.
We see many patients come here and see great results with better health, vitality and longevity. Decreased pain and inflammation. Improvements in blood tests. Overall health and wellness. Better outlook and hope in life.
We Look Forward To Working With You Towards A Healthier Tomorrow!
