Most alternative cancer approaches fail because they don't address the root cause of the problem in an individualized, holistic, coherent way.

coherent way

What does this look like?

  • Focusing on "killing cancer" instead of building health in the person 

  • The "throwing tomatoes at the wall": doing a bunch of random things and seeing what sticks 

  • Using cookie cutter diet and supplement programs that are not individualized based on the person's metabolism and other unique imbalances 

  • "Too many cooks in the kitchen": working with a bunch of different doctors without a coherent framework that connects everything 

  • The "everything but the kitchen sink" strategy: pushing the body too hard and too fast with too much without understanding how the body heals holistically 

  • "Shiny new toy" medicine: focusing on fancy technologies and cutting-edge therapies instead of a practical strategy that leads to real results on a day-to-day basis 

  • Therapies being done TO you instead of based in education, empowerment, and lifestyle transformation

  • Healing ends when you leave the office or when the program ends instead of leading to lasting change in your life

What an effective holistic program actually looks like...

  1. Transforming the way you live day-to-day leading to undeniable positive changes in your life

  2. The program fundamentally educates and empowers you to provide a deeper understanding of how you got to where you are and what you can do to change it

  3. High levels of support from your doctor to help you through the expected ups and downs of the healing process, answer questions, and make real-time adjustments as needed

  4. Based around practical daily actions and strategies so program can be maintained long-term ie. healing does not end when your appointments end

  5. Customized at every level: diet, supplements, anti-cancer agents, detox routines, lifestyle changes, mind-body medicine

  6. Based on a time-tested holistic framework to guide treatment

Why I Do This Work

When I was 10 years old, my grandmother passed away from multiple myeloma. She was 72 years old. Once she was diagnosed, she went downhill quickly. There was not much that could have been done.

After losing multiple family members to cancer and other diseases who did not have great results with conventional therapies, I decided to go to naturopathic medical school to learn how to heal the body naturally.

Going to naturopathic medical school can be overwhelming because you are introduced to so many different therapies and philosophies. One of my naturopathic teachers Dr. Lou always said, “Getting a bunch of naturopaths to agree about something is like trying to heard cats!” That was exactly my experience, especially with diet.

So many nutritional gurus are out there preaching their special diet from the rooftops. Some say animal food is poison, other say to only eat animal food. Vegan, paleo, ketogenic, Mediterranean, and the list goes on. How to make sense of what diet is right for you?

In my first year of naturopathic medical school, I began hearing about Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez who was helping patients with terminal cancer and chronic degenerative diseases far outlive their prognosis. I couldn’t believe the articles and case studies he published. The results were miraculous.

I learned that part of the protocol was metabolically typing, where each person is genetically designed to eat a different diet from high plant food to high animal food and everywhere in between. Finally, the conflicting dietary information made sense!

My grandmother’s cancer was also unique in that it tends to happen in individuals that are too alkaline by nature. People who are too alkaline tend to be artist, social butterflies, and night owls. They like comfort. They are emotionally calm, and are prone to fatigue, depression, and immune issues. These people are the exact opposite of those who are too acidic, who are Type A, organized, goal oriented, quick to anger, and prone to anxiety, high blood pressure, and digestive issues. My grandmother totally fit the archetype of someone who was too alkaline. Finally, her illness made sense.

Soon after learning about The Gonzalez Protocol®, Dr. Gonzalez suddenly passed away. I reached out to his wife, Mary Beth, expressing my interest in any future educational opportunities. After many emails and hours of phone calls about The Gonzalez Protocol®, I was honored to be invited to be part of The Nicholas Gonzalez Foundations’s efforts to develop an educational seminar for doctors. I worked on the project for nearly 3 years, going through Dr. Gonzalez’s personal notes and case files to help write the teaching manuals, and then lead lectures during two seminars in the summer of 2021.

I am so happy to be offering The Gonzalez Protocol® to those who are looking for an alternative. Every person that I can help is an honor to my grandmother’s life.

To Your Health, Dr. Alex

How We Design Our Programs

The Trophoblast Theory of Cancer

<p style = "font-size:60px;">
</picture>The Trophoblast Theory of Cancer</p>

The use of pancreatic enzymes for cancer was developed in the early 1900s by Dr. John Beard, an embryologist. Dr. Beard made the remarkable observation that cancer cells behave very similarly to the trophoblast cell layer of a developing embryo. 

The trophoblast produces undifferentiated cells that divide rapidly into the mother's uterine wall and stimulate angiogenesis, taking blood from the mother's blood supply for nourishment. This is exactly how cancer cells behave.

What stops the developing trophoblast for endless dividing and growing? The release of pancreatic enzymes from the pancreas of the developing fetus. 

This theory gave Dr. Beard the idea that he could use pancreatic enzymes for cancer. The results were so favorable that he published a book in 1911 called The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer. Since Dr. Beard's discovery and in spite of many critics, various doctors were able to replicate Dr. Beard's work, successfully treating cancer with various pancreatic enzyme formulations. 

And with the metabolic programs developed by Dr. Kelley and Dr. Gonzalez, this therapy reached a much larger audience, helping thousands of people to heal from cancer.
