Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD, (doctor’s website), 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, he completed an intensive research study in which he evaluated an aggressive nutritional therapy involving high doses of pancreatic enzymes for the treatment of advanced cancer. Originally discovered in the early 1900s by the English scientist Dr. Beard, a dentist named Dr. William Donald Kelley further developed it in the 1960s and 1970s and had been using it on his patients with great success. Years of studying Dr. Kelley’s methods and the extraordinary outcomes that he had with thousands of patients convinced Dr. Gonzalez to pursue further research on the therapy, which, over the years, received substantial financial support from Procter & Gamble, Nestle, and the National Cancer Institute. Results from a pilot study he completed on this therapy, published in 1999, yielded the most positive outcomes for the treatment of pancreatic cancer than any data described in the medical literature.
Dr. Gonzalez’s research and experiences also led him to write a book based on the therapy, entitled One Man Alone: An Investigation of Nutrition, Cancer, and William Donald Kelley. This monograph, completed in 1986 and published in 2010 by New Spring Press, describes his investigation of Dr. William Donald Kelley’s work and has been generating interest in the alternative and conventional medical world for over two decades. He also wrote a book entitled The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, a work which he co-authored with his colleague, Linda Isaacs, MD, which discusses, from the perspective of contemporary molecular biology, the pioneering research of Dr. John Beard. It provides a scientific rationale for the anti-cancer effects of pancreatic enzymes and their efficacy in the treatment of cancer, and includes case reports from Dr. Gonzalez and Dr. Isaacs’ practice. Since 2000, Dr. Gonzalez has also been writing a series of books detailing the history, theory, practice, and success of the therapy in his own practice.
Over the years, Dr. Gonzalez has regularly contributed as a guest on health-related talk radio programs such as Robert Scott Bell, LIME radio, Deborah Ray, Ron Hoffman, and Robert Atkins. His work has been positively featured in many consumer oriented venues, including Prevention, Total Health, Alternative Medicine, Life Extension, Longevity, and New Yorker, among others.
He has received many awards, including the following:
- Teagle Scholar award from Cornell University Medical School (1982).
- Ernst L. Wynder Award from The Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, D.C. (2000). (Dr. Wynder was the first scientist to confirm the link between cigarette smoking and cancer)
- Distinguished Pioneer in Alternative Medicine Award from the Foundation for the Advancement of Innovative Medicine (2000).
- Integrity in Science Award from the Weston A. Price Foundation (2010).
Dr. Gonzalez has been in private practice in New York City since 1987, treating patients diagnosed with cancer and other serious degenerative illnesses.
