Dr. Gonzalez's background, before Medical School, was in investigative journalism. He was attracted to integrated and natural medicine because of the forward vision of individuals like Dr. Robert A. Good, then the President of Sloan-Kettering medical institution. Dr. Good became Gonzalez's Research Advisor in his 2nd year at Cornell. Dr. Good supported a review Gonzalez undertook of the work of renegade healer, Dr. William Donald Kelley-- not a physician, but a Texas-based dentist who developed his own nutritional/enzyme treatments to heal hundreds of cases of cancer over twenty years, based on Dr. Beard's teachings. Dr. Gonzalez published a monograph based on his intensive study of 500 cancer cases of Dr. Kelley's.
Dr. Gonzalez explained his (and Dr. Beard's) concept of the trophoblast, that is, the early placental tissue. The placenta is meant to invade into underlying tissues to anchor the embryo. Beard realized the early placenta-- the trophoblast-- produces a blood supply very rapidly. Beard knew about cancer in 2006-- at that time pathologists had defined over 100 types of cancer, with 5 differing characteristics.
Dr. Gonzalez explained in the interview that "cancer is trophoblastic" and that what we now hear about "stem cells" and how they provide a resevoir for tissues is the modern idea of the "trophoblast" as put forward by Dr. Beard in 1906. He posits that Dr. Beard discovered 'stem cells'.
In his practice, Dr. Gonzalez uses a three-pronged approach to healing cancer:
1/individualized diet (selected from the best diet possibility for healing of a particular individual)
2/individualized supplements with pancreatic enzymes
3/individualized detoxification protocols
