I want to introduce you all to someone very special – Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez. I was introduced to the work of the late Dr. Gonzalez from one of his patients, Ann Cooper who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Watch the video about Ann’s story, here. In addition to Ann, Dr. Nicholas’s former partner, Dr. Linda Isaacs, has been a huge resource for HealingStrong in the area of nutritional therapies.
One of his beloved “miracle” patients, Mary Swander, decided it was important that everyone know his dedication to both his patients and his work. Mary Swander is an award-winning author, playwright and poet. Mary expertly tells his powerful story of perseverance, dedication, triumph and tragedy.
Nick imagined his future as a researcher toiling away in a lab in Memorial Sloan Kettering, working on conventional approaches to the disease. Yet Gonzalez’s life was anything but conventional. At the urging of Linus Pauling, he had already left an accomplished journalism career and entered Cornell Medical School. Gonzalez’s path took another turn when he met the controversial Dr. William Kelley, a dentist who, through an alternative nutritional approach, had arrested his own pancreatic cancer. Kelley had become infamous when he’d tried to help others.
The Maverick M.D. is the story of how Dr. Nick Gonzalez perfected the scientific theory behind Kelley’s work and put the protocol into practice in New York City. Gonzalez drew courage from his Christian faith, from his Mexican-Italian-American family, and from key loved ones, colleagues and mentors. He spent years treating patients with the most serious conditions–from cancer to diabetes to lupus. But he wasn’t satisfied as an outlier in the medical community. He wanted his work put to the test with a clinical trial.
This book portrays a man who fought for the acceptance of a nutritional cancer treatment in the halls of some of the most established U.S. medical institutions.
Swander’s bibliography titled, The Maverick M.D.: Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez’s Fight for A New Cancer Treatment goes beyond the scientific story of The Gonzalez Protocol and sheds light on what drove this uniquely talented scientist to devote his life to finding a completely natural, non-toxic cure for cancer.
Why is this important? The Nicholas Gonzalez Foundation is educating a select group of doctors who will offer Dr. Gonzalez’s nutritional enzyme treatment for cancer and other degenerative diseases in their own medical practices. This biography will open the eyes of patients everywhere to the hope and reality of an effective alternative treatment – a new paradigm of medicine.
There will be a limited number of copies published by Dr. Nick’s wife herself, Mary Beth Gonzalez, and they will be released on November 23, 2020 – just in time for holiday shopping!
It is SO important to me to support the work of the late Dr. Gonzalez and the foundation founded in his name, due to their dedication to educating and promoting the very backbone of WHY HealingStrong exists. I hope you all will join me in supporting The Nicholas Gonzalez Foundation by ordering your copy of The Maverick M.D.
