WHAT SHOULD I EAT?
NUTRITION & THE ATONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM
Low-fat or low-carb? Atkins or Ornish? The world of diet and nutrition can be confusing, not only to those seeking a healthier way of life, but also to professionals trying to sort through a morass of sometimes contradictory information. At the Whole Life Expo in Toronto, Nicholas J. Gonzalez MD discussed the physiology and biochemistry of dietary individuality, and made sense out of the confusion in the nutritional field and the contradictory statements of "experts." He reviewed the work of such pioneers as Dr. Weston Price, who showed that traditional groups of humans thrived on many different types of diets; Dr. Francis Pottenger, who demonstrated the effect of nutrients on the nervous system; and Dr. William Donald Kelley, who synthesized the work of these researchers into a coherent program (sometimes called "metabolic typing") of individualized dietary and supplement prescriptions. With visual aids and nearly three hours of lecture time, Dr. Gonzalez presented a thorough overview of why one diet does not work for all. Please note: this product will not give specifics for the ideal diet for any individual, and is not meant to be used as a self-help guide. Dr. Gonzalez received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College. During a postgraduate immunology fellowship under Dr. Robert A. Good, considered the father of modern immunology, 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. Results from a pilot study published in 1999 described the most positive data in the medical literature for pancreatic cancer. Dr. Gonzalez has published two books to date, "One Man Alone" and "The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer."
