Holistic Cancer Therapy Parts 1, 2 & 3
In this comprehensive six-hour seminar, Dr. Gonzalez discussed in detail the basic elements of his approach to cancer, involving individualized diets, individualized supplement programs with large doses of pancreatic enzymes, and detoxification routines such as coffee enemas.
Dr. Gonzalez began his presentation with an historical interlude, recounting the elegant research of the English scientist and embryologist Dr. John Beard, who more than 100 years ago first proposed that pancreatic proteolytic enzymes – already known by 1900 to be essential for digestion – also represent the body’s main defense against cancer, and would be useful as a cancer treatment. Dr. Beard’s hypothesis developed out of his study of the mammalian placenta, the connection between the growing embryo and the mother’s blood supply. In its earliest incarnation, Beard realized, the placenta behaves much as a malignant tumor, invading into the uterus while creating a complex blood supply. But the placenta differs from a cancerous tumor in that at some point its growth ceases, a change Beard attributed to the embryonic production of pancreatic enzymes. Since the placenta so resembles a tumor, he reasoned that pancreatic enzymes would be useful against the disease. In his lecture, Dr. Gonzalez detailed Dr. Beard’s laboratory and clinical investigations that helped support his thesis, and show how contemporary molecular biology confirms much of what Beard proposed a century ago.
In the second half of his lecture, Dr. Gonzalez described the basis for his use of different diets and individualized supplement programs. His nutritional prescriptions are based on imbalances in the autonomic nervous system (ANS), the complex collection of nerves that regulates physiological functions thought to be beyond conscious control, such as respiration, cardiovascular activity, digestion, and the secretion of hormones and enzymes. Patients with an overly strong sympathetic branch of the ANS do best, Dr. Gonzalez has found, with a plant based diet, those with a strong parasympathetic division do well on an animal protein and fat diet, while those with a balanced ANS thrive on a variety of foods, both of plant and animal origin.
Dr. Gonzalez also presented the work of the alternative practitioner, William Donald Kelley, DDS, who rediscovered Beard’s forgotten work in the 1960s. Kelley believed that imbalances in the two divisions of the autonomic nervous system is at the root of much human disease, and fundamentally determines our dietary “type” and the nutrients needed for optimal health. Dr. Gonzalez also provided the rationale for Dr. Kelley’s incorporation of coffee enemas and other “detoxification” routines into his regimen, designed to help the body excrete the waste load produced as tissues repair and rebuild, and tumors break down.
Dr. Gonzalez also presented a number of case reports demonstrating the efficacy of the therapy against both cancer and non-cancer illnesses.Nicholas Gonzalez, MD graduated from Brown University, Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude, with a degree in English Literature. He subsequently worked as a journalist, first at Time Inc., before pursuing premedical studies at Columbia. He then received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College in 1983. During a postgraduate immunology fellowship under Dr. Robert A. Good, considered the father of modern immunology and for years President of Sloan-Kettering, he completed a research study evaluating an aggressive nutritional therapy in the treatment of advanced cancer.
Since 1987, Dr. Gonzalez has been in private practice in New York City, treating patients diagnosed with cancer and other serious degenerative illnesses. His nutritional research has received substantial financial support from Procter & Gamble, Nestle, and the National Cancer Institute. Results from a pilot study published in 1999 described the most positive data in the medical literature for pancreatic cancer. Dr. Gonzalez recently released two books. The first, The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, discusses from a contemporary perspective Dr. John Beard, who 100 years ago first suggested an anti-cancer effect for pancreatic enzymes. The second in the series, One Man Alone, presents the results of Dr. Gonzalez's five-year investigation of the alternative cancer practitioner Dr. William Donald Kelley completed under the direction of Dr. Good.
