In January 2018, when I was 57 years old, my family and I were told that I have adenocarcinoma lung cancer. Two different oncologist’s said that my only option was a combination of chemotherapy and radiation and that if I didn’t do the chemotherapy and radiation, my life expectancy would be six to eighteen months. After further research, I said no to the chemotherapy and radiation and decided to do the Gerson Therapy.
In April 2018 my daughter and I went to the Health Institute de Tijuana for two weeks. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by staff with open arms. The clinic was very clean and had a cozy, safe feeling. The food was amazing and was always presented like beautiful art.
While at the clinic we learned everything needed for the therapy, so that we would be able to continue the therapy at home. We also met other patients and listening to their stories gave me hope and strength and they have stay with me in my heart, even after leaving the clinic.
Once I was home, I continued to work very hard at healing and had my monthly follow ups with my doctor at the clinic. Setting up the follow ups is an easy process and it feels great knowing that my lab work is reviewed monthly and the therapy is customized just for me.
In September 2019 I was very fortunate to be able to go back to the Health Institute de Tijuana, with my daughter as my companion again, to receive the dendritic immunotherapy treatment and IV vitamin C. Being at the clinic again was just like it was “yesterday” and nothing had changed. There were the same open arms that welcomed you, the same amazing staff, the same beautiful food and patients that touch your heart. Health Institute de Tijuana is a place where healing is all around you.
I know in my heart that the Gerson Therapy is why my body is healing and that I am able to still be here on earth. My wish is to go back to the Health Institute de Tijuana one day, not as a patient, but as a survivor and give my doctor another long hug.

The doctors, staff, and personnel of health institute of Tijuana are the most compassionate, loving, and caring medical staff that I’ve ever come in contact with. And it’s not just the medical staff that are so compassionate and loving and caring it’s the ladies that cook our food with such love and the ladies that clean my room with such care that I cannot comprehend.
They are all easy to understand as they speak Spanish and English so I learned a little better Spanish while I was here.
Gracias to all who helped.
The community of love and genuine desire to help is among everybody that walks the floors and the compound of this place. They not only teach the Gerson Therapy way but they inspire for you to be that better person than you were before not eating healthy.
Thank you to all who made this journey that was a little scary not so scary and absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this community of love for anybody needing even just rest and attention all the way up to cancer patients. You’ll never find a better place to get healthy and renew your spirit for ultimately Christ is our healer. For I know for a fact that He sent down Angels to H.I.T to help those heal. Last but not least thank you Dr. Vanessa Alverez for your constant prayer and God‘s healing touch over me you are amazing disciple of Christ and I see Him and you. Gracias

“The rush of confusion for what to do this time about the breast cancer that's invaded my body a 2nd time was so strong. In worship and prayer to God for what to do, He prompted me to revisit the Gerson Clinic's website for their treatment center's approach to healing disease/cancer naturally. My prayer was that if this was the way God wanted me to handle this cancer, I prayed God would open the doors and provide the way for treatment at the Gerson Clinic. He did!
I got to the Gerson Clinic for 2 weeks with an extraordinary friend who volunteered to come along side me in that journey. While at the Gerson Clinic in Tijuana, MX, my wonderful doctor, nurses, and staff were so caring, loving and encouraging as they administered treatment through out my/our stay. They made sure my care-giver and I left the Gerson Clinic understanding the treatments protocol as they patiently answered our questions. Now that I'm home implementing my protocol for healing, my doctor has been available for my emailed questions and answers them promptly.
I feel good about my decision and am continuing my treatment with the help of friends and family who encourage me and who support the natural treatment I follow from the Gerson Clinic. I am so grateful for the staff and treatment that comes out of the Gerson Clinic!”

“I was at the clinic for a couple of weeks and wanted to detox and learn how to eat well. I was pre-hypertensive and by the time I left, my blood pressure was back to normal. At first it was hard to eat without sugar and salt but I got used to it in three days. The food was so good. By the time I left, I lost seven pounds and had tremendous amount of energy. The staff was so friendly…I was hugging everyone. I didn’t want to leave.”
