Nicholas Gonzalez, MD

Dr. Gonzalez 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 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. His nutritional research has received substantial financial support from Procter & Gamble, Nestle, and the National Cancer Institute. Results from a pilot study published in 1999 described the most positive data in the medical literature for pancreatic cancer.

It is with great sadness that the office of Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D. relays news of his untimely death on Tuesday, July 21, 2015. He died suddenly at home of unknown causes. Until then, he had been in excellent health. Preliminary autopsy results have been inconclusive, but do not support the initial belief that he might have suffered a heart attack. Further tests are underway to determine the cause of death.

Dr. Gonzalez was laid to rest on July 28. Dr. Linda Isaacs and his office staff are tending to patients. For updates, please subscribe to the office announcement list on the website link below. Moving forward, his team will do their best to navigate tasks and transitions seamlessly and we thank you in advance for your kind consideration.

Dr. Gonzalez leaves a legacy of faith, healing, and genuine love for people and the pursuit of medicine. We are heartbroken at this loss, but determined to keep his work and his memory alive.

A few weeks ago, I shared my general concepts of Green Medicine involving three components: the use of dietary, nutritional and natural substances (what I call our personal green), living in a clean home and office (our local green) and working to keep the greater world in which we all must live clean for the health of us all (our global green). In this article I take a look at asthma—a specific, epidemic and potentially dangerous problem, particularly as the disease occurs in...

What exactly is Green Medicine? I like to think of it in terms of stimulating the body’s own resources and extraordinary abilities to repair and rebuild itself. It helps reverse even serious illness, using diet, nutrients, detoxification procedures and rarely drugs, to move our bodies in a healing direction. It means living a clean life at home, avoiding exposures, as much as possible, to toxic, synthetic chemicals. It also means working to keep the larger world around us...

Editor’s note: The following information is excerpted from the totalhealth article, which ran in May 2001, Deciding to Pursue an Alternative Cancer Therapy by Dr. Linda Isaacs, Dr. Gonzalez’s partner. It serves as an excellent introduction to this first of two articles on condition specific nutrition as a primary therapy for pancreatic and other cancers.

In writing this article I drew not only upon my own experience but also on the results of...
