In the recently released book, Defeat Cancer: 15 Doctors of Integrative and Naturopathic Medicine Tell You How, by Connie Strasheim,, Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, describes a non-toxic approach to cancer treatment using pancreatic enzymes. This treatment has been successful for bringing many types of cancer into remission, even late stage cancers that were considered to be incurable by conventional medicine.

Pancreatic enzymes are cytotoxic and directly destroy cancer cells. Dr. Gonzalez uses pancreatic enzymes to treat his patients for a variety of cancers as part of a three-pronged approach to healing.

In conventional medicine, pancreatic enzymes are thought to function only to break down food. They are excreted by the pancreas into the intestinal tract, where they break down carbohydrates, fats and proteins arriving from the stomach. Yet pancreatic enzymes also destroy cancer cells.

Evidence for this was first provided over 100 years ago, when an early 1900’s English scientist, John Beard, D.Sc., discovered that pancreatic enzymes are what stop the growth of placental cells in a fetus. And because placental cells behave in almost exactly the same way as cancer cells, he discovered that pancreatic enzymes also stop cancer cell growth.

Thus, Dr. Gonzalez’ pancreatic enzyme therapy stems from a theory that was developed over 100 years ago. It has since enabled many people with cancer to live for many months or years beyond their initial prognoses.

Another aspect of Dr. Gonzalez’ treatment protocol and which is described in "Defeat Cancer" involves removing toxins from the body through a variety of natural therapies. Detoxification is important during cancer treatment because cancer cells release toxins when they die, which must then be removed from the body. Detoxification also helps to reduce inflammation , as well as to remove environmental toxins that cause or contribute to the body’s disease processes.

Finally, in "Defeat Cancer," Dr. Gonzalez describes his dietary and nutritional supplement recommendations for people with cancer, which complement the pancreatic enzyme and detoxification therapy. These recommendations are tailored to the individual patient, their biochemistry, and the type of cancer that they have.

Treatment Outcomes Using Pancreatic Enzymes

Dr. Gonzalez has had exceptional results in treating his patients with pancreatic enzymes, which far surpass the results obtained from conventional cancer treatments. In "Defeat Cancer," he contends that most of his patients do well, when they follow through on their treatment protocols.

In the book, he states, “I started practicing medicine in 1987, and at that time, I had a patient who had an aggressive, metastatic, stage four breast cancer. She came to see me after having done chemotherapy, and is still alive and well today, with no evidence of cancer in her body. She has so far lived for twenty-three years past her original diagnosis. There are many people like her who have come to see me, and who are now living normal, healthy lives, after having had terrible, terminal cancers.” Other testimonials of healing can be found on Dr. Gonzalez’ website:
