Gerson Therapy Alternative

Safe And Natural Therapies Without the Painful Side Effects

What is Gerson Therapy?

Gerson Therapy is a gentle approach to treating various diseases, including cancer, tuberculosis, and migraines. Our advanced Gerson Therapy in Mexico promotes a diet and lifestyle designed to detox the body and strengthen the immune system. 

The Gerson regimen includes three main components:

  • A vegetarian diet – To balance sodium and potassium levels in the body of the Gerson patient, the method begins with consuming a strict Gerson diet of organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Daily supplements – Vitamin and mineral supplements, including vitamin B12, potassium, and iodine, are included in the Gerson diet in hopes of boosting immunity. 
  • Detox substances – Coffee enemas and castor oil enemas are both used to cleanse the body of a Gerson patient. 

At our cancer therapy center in Tijuana, Mexico, a diet similar to the Gerson regimen may be recommended as part of your personalized cancer patient plan. However, we traditionally adhere to a more holistic approach to nutrition, as well as overall recovery, and will create a custom dietary plan based on your unique cancer patient needs. Reach out to us and get started with the best Gerson therapy Mexico has to offer.

Diet is Just One Component of ITC’s Treatment

At our center, we treat cancer holistically—body and mind. Diet is an important factor, largely influencing your daily energy, mood, and immunity levels, but ITC’s specialized cancer care stretches beyond the offerings of a typical Gerson clinic just what you eat. We pair nutritional recommendations with a customized treatment plan of alternative approaches. 

At ITC, we’re highly skilled in a wide range of alternative treatment options, including Graviola IV therapy, HALO therapy, Whole Body and Localized Hyperthermia, and more. We treat all types and stages of cancer, personalizing our offerings to your specific needs. We’ll build a customized plan together, considering your initial diagnosis, treatment and medical history, current condition, top concerns, and more. 

ITC’s Multi-Pronged Approach to a Healthy Diet

Cancer treatment can have various effects on your body and appetite, so it’s important to begin with a healthy eating plan designed specifically to support wellness. Whether it be degenerative diseases similar to Alzheimer’s or  lymph node cancer, a nutritious diet fuels you with energy that lasts, helps you rebuild body tissue, and maintains your defenses against infection. 

At ITC, we recommend a unique diet of high alkaline and low glycemic index foods. What does that look like?

We recommend that you fuel your body with… We recommend that you avoid…
  • Protein, such as fish, poultry, eggs, beans, nuts, and legumes
  • Healthy fats, mainly from vegetable and seed sources
  • Complex carbohydrates, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, and cereals
  • At least 8 ounces of water each day
  • Red meat
  • Processed foods
  • Refined carbohydrates, such as white rice, pasta, and bread, cookies, candy, soda, and so on
  • Corn
  • Peanuts


Our weekly nutrition counseling and appointments begin with these basic pillars and are then tailored to your lifestyle, needs, and resources. We’ll also share suggestions of new foods and local restaurants to try, helping you make discoveries and navigate the lifestyle change that comes with your cancer therapy in the simplest way possible. 

Our expertise doesn’t stop at advanced cancer diet therapy knowledge. Through guided homecare, we’ll also introduce calorie requirements and nutritious recipes to help you stay on track. Discover new foods high in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and liquids with personalized suggestions catered to your taste. 

Don’t Worry—Diet is Already Included in Your ITC Treatment Plan

At the Immunity Therapy Center, we’ve already included a customizable nutrition plan in your holistic cancer treatment, so you can rest easy and focus on recovery knowing we’ve thought of everything.  We want you to heal, not worry about the cost of cancer treatment.
