Frequently Asked Questions

How can I become a patient at your clinic?
Provided you are a candidate to receive the Gerson Therapy, after speaking with one of our doctors, you must gather up all medical records to be released to our clinic. Once this is in order you are immediately able to come down provided space is available. A deposit will be required to hold your reservation.

How quickly can one come to the Clinic?
Provided that there is space available at our clinic you may come down usually within two weeks. Call us to make sure that there is space available.

How much does it cost to stay at your clinic?
There are many programs to choose from at our clinic. Those choices range from the full Advanced Gerson Therapy to a modified Gerson program for people who want to come to our clinic just to detoxify and lose weight. The cost of the Advanced Gerson Therapy is $6250 per week with a two-week, minimum stay required. A majority of our patients stay three weeks for the best results. The cost includes room and board for a companion, 3 months worth of supplements, 3-6 months of Coleys treatment, IV Vitamin C, pure, organic aloe vera, along with a myriad of other immunotherapies including various oxygen therapies. Round trip airport transport also included.

Does the clinic accept any kind of payment plans or can I pay with credit card?
No, all clinics in Mexico require that all services be paid in US dollars/cash after the initial deposit.

Does insurance cover the Gerson Therapy?
Unfortunately no. Your insurance company will not reimburse us, or you, for your care.

What if I cannot afford to come to the clinic?
If the patient’s cancer is severely advanced and has any of the following conditions: kidney involvement, extensive metastasis, previous chemotherapy, or taking multiple prescription medications, they will be required to come to our clinic.

If you have a life insurance policy and have a terminal diagnosis you may be able to get a loan or advance on your policy, which you can use to cover the cost.  (www.thelifeline.com)

Some of our patients have been able to raise money to cover the cost of our therapy by setting up a donation page at www.gofundme.com, www.giveforward.com or www.crowdrise.com

Do I need to bring a companion? If so, what role do they play?
If you are suffering from an advanced or terminal disease it is mandatory that you bring a companion. The companion’s role is to serve as support to the patient but, more importantly, they are there to learn how to do the therapy correctly while the patient convalesces and heals. This is why we include a companion in the pricing.

How do I get to the clinic?
Our patients fly into San Diego International Airport or Tijuana Airport where we will personally pick you up and escort you straight to our clinic outside of Rosarito. We will also return you back to the airport upon completion of your treatment.

What do I need to cross the border and enter back into the United States?
To enter Mexico and the United States you need a birth certificate AND a valid government issued ID, like a drivers license. You do not need a passport to re-enter the U.S.

Do your doctors in Mexico speak English?
Yes, our doctors speak fluent English. If you do not speak English or Spanish you will need to bring someone who can interpret for you.

Why is your clinic in Mexico and not the United States? 
The medical establishment has managed to pass laws to protect their profits by making it illegal to use anything other than chemo and radiation in the treatment of cancer. Some states, like New York, Arizona, Washington and Nevada, are loosening up their laws. However, it is not enough to be able to safely practice the Gerson Therapy in the U.S. without the fear of having our clinics raided and shut down by the medical and governmental authorities.

I heard it is dangerous in Mexico. Is it really that safe?
You often hear in the news the negative and horrific stories about Mexico. These stories are pounded into the American psyche by a relentless media. To be realistic, however, we would like to provide you with a more genuine, reliable and true perspective of life at our clinic.
Our clinic is located in a quiet, upper-class, affluent neighborhood where the violent incidences in the news have NEVER occurred. We are located in a beautiful setting on the ocean of Rosarito, Mexico, twenty miles south of the San Diego border. It offers our patients calmness, tranquility, peace and solitude.
With the recent, horrific and continual shootings in the United States against fellow citizens we want to assure you that you are safer here than in the United States.
You will be picked up at the airport by our staff and safely escorted directly to our clinic. At the end of your stay you will, again, be safely escorted back to the airport in San Diego by our reliable staff. Rest assured that compromising of your safety is never an issue.

If we have failed to answer any questions you may have please feel free to call us and we will be happy to answer those questions.
