Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez has been investigating nutritional approaches to cancer and other degenerative diseases since 1981, and has been in practice in New York since 1987. Dr. Linda Isaacs has been working with Dr. Gonzalez in his research and practice since 1985. In their office they use individualized aggressive nutritional protocols to work with many types of cancer, and with other illnesses such as allergies, autoimmune disorders and chronic fatigue.
Although our published research deals with pancreatic cancer, in our office we treat patients with all types of cancers. We also treat patients with a variety of other problems, ranging from chronic fatigue syndrome to multiple sclerosis. Each treatment protocol is individualized for each patient, regardless of the underlying problem.
Diet: The prescribed diets are quite variable, and can range from nearly vegetarian to diets requiring red meat 2-3 times a day. Each patient receives individualized dietary recommendations. All the diets, however, require that the patient consume primarily organic foods, and avoid synthetic and refined foods such as white flour and white sugar.
Supplements: Like the diets, the supplement protocols are individualized for each patient, depending on their health problems and biochemical makeup. The prescribed supplements include a variety of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, anti-oxidants, animal glandular concentrates and other food concentrates.
Pancreas Product (For Cancer Patients): The main anti-cancer supplement is a specially manufactured pancreas product (containing naturally occurring enzymes) made from pig pancreas. Cancer patients on this regimen take up to 45 grams of pancreas product a day, taken orally and spread throughout the day.
Overall, cancer patients will consume 130-175 capsules a day, including nutrients as well as pancreas product. Non-cancer patients might consume in the range of 80-100 capsules a day, the exact number depending on their health status and medical problems.
Detoxification: On this therapy, patients - whatever their underlying problem - routinely develop a variety of symptoms, most commonly described as "flu-like," such as low grade fevers, muscle aches and pains, even rashes. We hypothesize these symptoms result from the body's repair processes which release all manner of waste material. "Detoxification " refers to procedures such as the coffee enema, which are believed to enhance liver function and in turn, the processing and excretion of metabolic wastes. The coffee enemas are done twice daily, and patients most commonly report symptomatic relief.
