All of us in the Health
Community applaud Dr. Gonzalez for his breakthrough achievement
in the NCI grant of $1.4 million for the pancreatic cancer trial.
This marvelous accomplishment, however, began in 1906 at the University
of Edinburgh, Scotland through Professor John Beard, an embryologist.
Beard discovered the anti-cancer effect of pancreatic enzymes
with mice and recommended it for humans. Several cancer cures
were reported in the American Medical Journal by respected physicians.
In 1911 the x-ray technology came into being, and pancreatic enzymes
were abandoned for Marie Curie's radiation discovery.
In 1969, a Texas orthodontist,
William Donald Kelley lay on the operating table for pancreatic
cancer. It was inoperable. Kelley was told to go home and get
his affairs in order. He had three months to live. Kelley refused
to surrender. He researched the medical literature and found Beard's
The rest is history. There would be six other cases of pancreatic
cancer that recovered past five years under Kelley's Program of
pancreatic enzymes, detoxification, and individualized nutrition.
Over 5,000 patients of varying auto - immune diseases and cancer
responded to Kelley's immune regeneration in the next fifteen
years. Unfortunately, a dentist curing cancer does not sit well
with the medical establishment and Kelley was forced to retire.
Dr. Kelley turned over his records, knowledge, programs, and "torch"
to a very promising immunologist - medical doctor in New York,

Chapter I (Revised) - Professional Review and Update
See the 1986 Memorial Sloan Kettering review of Dr. Kelley's Pancreatic
~ What is Cancer?
Cancer is a process misunderstood by the medical community. Cancer
is classified by the medical community, as a fast-growing malignant
tumor, which, if allowed to grow unchecked, will cause death.
Many clinicians believe that cancer is a complex: a number of
different diseases, each having it's own cause. Most doctors,
even research scientists, suppose such things as viruses, X-rays
cigarette smoking chemicals, sunlight, and trauma causes cancer.
However there are a growing number of cancer researchers who believe
that these factors, rather than causing cancer, are indirect stimulators
of a normal trophoblast-like pleuripotential cell. This trophoblast-like
cell then makes its "faIse placenta", a malignant tumor
mass, which the medical community calls cancer.
~ In the Beginning
In the first five days after fertilization in the formation of
a human embryo, the growing mass of cells divides into two kinds
of cells, an inner cell mass (embryoblasts) which become the embryo,
and an outer layer of cells called the trophoblast, which later
forms the placenta. This process is so complex that half of the
developing masses ever progress past this stage. Something goes
wrong with normal development and they are expelled from the woman's
body before they can implant themselves in the uterus.
After the cell mass
attaches to the wall of the uterus, the trophoblasts invade the
lining of the uterus, growing quickly and invasively, as a tumor
does when invading an organ of a human body. The trophoblast cells
invade, digest a bole in the wall of the uterus and form a multinucleated
mass with no cell boundaries, which looks under the microscope
like the cells of a carcinoma. During this invasion of the trophoblasts
into the uterine wall, the pregnant woman may feel nauseous with
"morning sickness" due to the trauma of being assailed
by this cancer-like mass. As small blood vessels are invaded and
digested by the invading trophoblasts, pools of blood form in
the tissue, which nourishes the growing mass. The failure of the
maternal tissue to reject this implantation has always puzzled
embryologists and immunologists. One current view is that the
trophoblast cells lack certain protein on their surfaces, and
thus are not recognized as foreign by the mother's body.
~ Primary Germ
During the time that the trophoblast cells are aggressively infiltrating
the maternal tissue, the inner cell mass is organizing itself
into a three part disc, shaped like I flying saucer. These three
parts of the disc are called the three primary germ layers, or
the ectoderm, the endoderm and the mesoderm. Each of these three
layers become different parts of the human body .The ectoderm
becomes the skin, the brain and the nerves. "Ecto" means
surface, and indeed these cells become the surface covering of
the body, and the nerves which are the interface, of the body
with the outside world. The endoderm becomes the linings of many
organs) such as the lungs, the intestines, liver, and pancreas
"Endo" means within, and indeed these cells become almost
all of the linings of the body. The mesoderm becomes the muscles,
blood, bone, and the reproductive organs. "Meso" means
middle, and these mesoderm cells, which form as the middle layer
of the disc, become the vast majority of the cells of the body,
almost all of the different cell types.
This process of organ
formation involves extensive migration of certain cells from the
disc to their future sites. The mesoderm cells come from an area
on the disc known as the primitive streak. Under a microscope,
a dark streak progresses visibly along the center of the disc
from the tail end to the head end of the disc. This primitive
streak is caused as ectodermal cells drive down into the middle
of the disc like the filling of a sandwich, becoming mesodermal
cells in the process. This migrating of ectodermal cells becoming
mesodermal cells happens very early in development - between two
weeks and three weeks after the trophoblasts begin invading the
uterus of the mother. These migrating cells, which come from the
primitive streak, are pleuripotent. The mesoderm cells are called
pleurlpotential, because under different circumstances they are
able to follow more than one pathway of development. In other
words, mesoderm cells can potentially form many kinds of tissue.
They are cells, which are closest in nature to the unruly aggressive
trophoblastic cells that have formed the placenta.
This broad developmental
potential of the pleuripotential cells becomes more and more restricted
and checked as the tissues acquire the specialized control mechanisms
to guide the cells in their development. Increasingly complicated
migrations of cells occur as the body of the new human is forming.
For instance in the ectoderm, neural cells migrate in the myriad
directions and become specialized neurons. This regimentation
of a cell's capabilities must occur in order to form, for example,
a bone cell as opposed to a muscle cell in the mesoderm. Such
regimentation comes about in response to cues from the immediate
surroundings, including the nearby tissue. The precision and coordination
required for correct development is dependent upon these interactions.
Thus, nearby tissues influence development of certain cells, probably
by signals carried by certain protein molecules. Interestingly
enough, these signals must also occur at a certain precise time,
so that a delay in this signal may lead to the failure of correct
interaction, leading to various kinds of defects. Many of these
defects cause the death of the developing embryo, and some lead
to birth defects.
~ Direct Cause
of Cancer ~
The intricate and precise orchestration of the formation of a
normal human from the original inner cell mass is a miracle of
precision timing and maturation of these pleuripotential cells.
Every normal human contains varying numbers of cells, which have
not completed their correct migrations, thereby leaving "sleeping"
pleuripotential cells scattered throughout the body. When these
pleuripotential cells are activated through genetic, environmental
or nutritional factors, a tumor cell mass, similar to the invasive
trophoblastic cell mass can begin to form. This cancerous tumor
may contain various types of tissue, such as chips of bone or
hair. These scattered pleuripotential cells are normally prevented
from becoming a cancerous tumor through circulating protein molecules,
which keep their growth in check. It has been theorized that when
a human body does not have enough of these patrolling molecules,
the pleuripotential cell grows in an unrestrained fashion, becoming
In summary, the early
embryo has two cell types: the trophoblast and the embryoblast.
The embryoblast becomes the three germ cell types; the ectoderm,
the endoderm and the mesoderm. The mesodermal cells are pleuripotential,
with a vast ability to become many different kinds of cells. Some
of these remain "sleeping" dispersed throughout the
tissues of the body.
~ How Do Enzymes
Enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas to help digest the
food that enters the small intestine from the stomach. Different
kinds of enzymes work on protein, on fats or on starch and sugar.
By the action of these powerful enzymes, large particles of protein,
fat or starch, are broken down into smaller and smaller pieces,
until they are small enough to go through the wall of the small
intestine and be used there to digest food coming back from the
stomach. These enzymes can also be absorbed through the wall of
the small intestine into the body, and travel in the blood stream
to distant locations in the body where they are needed.
Why don't these powerful
enzymes start dissolving the very tissue that they are passing
through? How can these enzymes travel to the tumor and only digest
the cancer, without harming the person's body in which the cancer
is growing? The secret to how the enzyme can tell the difference
between "good tissues and bad tissues", lies in a difference
as small as the difference between your right hand and your left
hand. Almost all the billions of tiny molecules in the body are
either right-handed or left-handed. As an example of right and
left handedness, let's look at a pair of mittens. In a pair of
mittens you find one for the right hand and one for the left hand.
They are mirror images of each other, but if you tried to put
the right-handed mitten down on top of the left-handed mitten,
they would not match. In a mysterious way, the human body uses
only right handed sugar molecules, but only left-handed protein
The above paragraph
has discussed right-handed sugar molecules and left-handed protein
molecules. Logic raises the question, where are the mirror image
substances? Where are the left-handed sugar molecules and the
right-handed protein molecules? These are found within the placenta,
which is made of trophoblasts. They are also found within the
trophoblast-like tumor cells. What difference does this make for
the enzyme trypsin?
We know that the enzyme
trypsin acts on cooked left-handed proteins and living (non-cooked)
rlght-handed proteins. Normally, when we eat a meal, the cooked
left-handed proteins, which we eat, are digested in the small
intestine by the trypsin released by the pancreas. Trypsin does
not act on the organs of the human body, because these are living,
left-handed protein. However, trypsin is very effective at breaking
down living, right-handed proteins. And where did we say living
right-handed proteins could be found? These living, right-handed
proteins are the substance comprising the cancerous tumor. So,
the trypsin can travel via the bloodstream to the tumor, and its
action there is on the protein mass that makes up the tumor. It
breaks down the protein mass of the tumor and "liquefies"
As further explanation,
this cancerous tumor needs an enzyme with which it can digest
the organ or tissue of the human where the tumor is located. It
uses human tissue as food. To obtain its needed enzyme, the tumor
itself makes the enzyme. This tumor-made enzyme is called malignin,
which does digest human protein. This malignin is the mirror image
enzyme to trypsin. In other words, trypsin and malignin are mirror
images of each other, as your right hand and left hand are mirror
images of each other. As trypsin acts on living right-handed protein,
namely the tumor mass, so malignin acts only on living left-handed
proteins, namely human tissue.
Trypsin in sufficient
quantities can begin to break down the cancerous tumor but not
fully digest the cancerous tumor. During the breakdown process,
trypsin produces some intermediate proteins, which can be quite
toxic to the human body. These intermediate proteins need a second
enzyme to complete their digestion, i.e. "liquefaction".
Therefore, to be successful, the enzyme treatment for cancerous
tumors must include both of these enzymes in sufficient quantities
to render the products of tumor digestion harmless.
These enzymes work
by traveling through the bloodstream to the site of the tumor
and digesting the specific protein of the tumor mass, without
harming the body's tissues at all. This fascinating story of the
matching rlght and left handed molecules, trypsin and malignin,
was explained almost a century ago by Scottish doctor, John Beard,
D.Sc. His revolutionary book, published In London in 1911, was
entitled, The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and Its Scientific Basis.
At that time, some cancers were treated by direct injection of
the enzymes near the cancer mass. Now, we realize that injecting
the enzymes is unnecessary, since swallowing capsules containing
the enzymes will also work. Trypsin will only digest the protein
of the tumor, thus it can safely travel through the body.
The ability to target
the tumor in such a specific and successful manner makes the use
of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation obsolete.

A Note from Dr. Kelley ~
scientific presentation above is pure truth and scientific without
error. Any clinician who challenges this should start all over
with his education - in high school biology.
I first read Dr. Beard's
book in May 2000. By 1962 I bad developed my successful protocol
and was free of cancer. I accept Professor Fairbanks' most significant
contribution to the understanding of my program, which should
help the clinicians who stand up for proper treatment of those
suffering with cancer.
The missing factors
in Dr. Beard's and Professor Fairbanks' understanding are the
enzyme activators, which have made my program so successful for
the past 40 years. It has been my experience that without the
complete program, success will be limited to approximately 52%.

M.D., is a practicing physician in New York City who specializes
in treating cancer with a treatment originated by Dr. Kelley,
D.D.S. He has a unique perspective on nutrition, autonomic nervous
system balance and biochemical individuality. He joined Robert
Crayhon for the June 16, 1995 taping of the national TV show,
"Alternative Medicine." His address: 36 East 36th Street,
Suite 204, New York, N.Y. 10016. His office phone number is 212-213-3337.
RC: Dr. Gonzalez, how
did you start approaching cancer from your unique comprehensive
metabolic and nutritional approach?
NG: I was a second
year medical student intending to become chief of medicine at
Sloan Kettering, and a friend of mine introduced me to Dr. Kelley,
the infamous dentist who developed this elaborate nutritional
approach to cancer. Skeptically, I approached him, and he said,
"All I ever wanted was someone from the orthodoxy to look
through my records." At the time, my research advisor at
Cornell, where I was a medical student suggested I do it as a
summer project. It evolved into a five year research study. We
went through ten thousand of Kelley's records, and found that
this man had indeed reversed advanced metastatic cancer. We went
through the cases of thousands of patients.
RC: The way Dr. Kelley
started-- correct me if I’m wrong-- was when he found out
he had pancreatic cancer he walked into a health food store and
bought pancreatic enzymes. The whole thing began by chance.
NG: That's right. It
was purely by chance. He had a lot of digestive problems, as patients
with pancreatic cancer will. In an attempt to help his digestive
problems, he started taking huge doses of pancreatic enzymes and
immediately felt a change in his tumor. That's how it started.
RC: There are many
facets to the therapy that you do, but pancreatic enzymes are--
you believe-- the most powerful anticancer substances available.
Why are they so anti-cancer?
NG: It’s the
way the body is designed. In orthodox and even unorthodox physiology,
we tend to think that the enzymes serve one function: to help
to digest food. Indeed they do that. But Kelley-- as did many
researchers before him and since-- believed that the enzymes are
a primary defense against cancer, and are far more important than
the immune system in terms of controlling the development and
growth of cancer. So we believe that is one of their designated
functions in the human body.
RC: Critics of this
will say, "Pancreatic enzymes released into the digestive
tract are molecules way too big to get into the bloodstream."
NG: In the 1940s, scientists
documented that they do in fact get absorbed. There is a wonderful
study from 1976 in Science magazine, one of the ultimate scientific
journals, where a professor at Cornell did a study with rabbits
and mice and found that the pancreatic enzymes are absorbed through
the intestinal tract, complete and active, and are not destroyed
in the gut.
RC: Are there any studies
on pancreatic enzymes' anti-cancer activity?
NG: Yes. There is a
wonderful study from 1965 where a doctor used them in animal models
and a doctor found they had an extraordinary, powerful anti-cancer
RC: Now these are inexpensive
substances, aren't they, compared to pharmaceuticals?
RC: Why hasn't there
been a greater interest in pancreatic enzymes? I know they were
studied for nearly a hundred years. Is it because they were overshadowed
by the work of Madam Curie, and the belief her work generated
that radiation would cure all cancer? Or is it because pancreatic
enzymes are unpatentable?
NG: Because of FDA
regulations, pancreatic enzymes fall in the category of a natural
substance. Therefore, there is no impetus for a drug company to
spend hundreds of millions of dollars in researching pancreatic
enzymes. They cannot patent what they might find. There is also
the psychological resistance to look at natural substances in
the orthodox research community, although that is starting to
RC: I know that your
practice is based on biochemical individuality, the belief that
everyone has unique needs. Some of your cancer patients are not
given that much pancreatic enzymes because their pancreas is strong
and they do not need support in that area. You really examine
each person to find out what their unique needs are.
NG: Correct. The doses
vary quite widely, depending on the patient.
RC: Roger Williams
and other researchers firmly established that we are all biochemically
unique. Yet medicine fails to recognize this. Why do you think
that is, and why do you think medicine is looking for the one
therapy that will suit everyone?
NG: It is the limitations
of human thinking. People want to reduce things to simple answers.
Nutrition is not a simple answer. There is no simple way to approach
even a single individual patient. Everybody is different. Everybody
needs a different diet, different doses of supplements, different
supplements. The same dose of one supplement will make one patient
feel wonderful and make another patient feel very sick.
RC: Let's look at calcium.
So many women are taking calcium because they are told that it
is going to strengthen their bones. Yet you have said that the
misuse of vitamin and mineral supplements are a real problem,
and that people don't realize that the wrong nutrient for the
wrong person can have profoundly adverse health effects. Why is
that? Because of the individual responses to these nutrients?
NG: Yes. In certain
patients, calcium can stimulate certain kinds of cancer, like
breast cancer. If you look at the statistics epidemiologically,
the increase in breast cancer parallels the increase in use of
RC: As well as the
increase in toxins in our environment and the use of synthetic
hormones. You also say that for some people, vitamin E is the
wrong nutrient and should not be taken.
NG: We have been saying
that for years. Everyone laughed at us. I have a lot of respect
for the Shute brothers and other people who have researched vitamin
E. Yet some free radicals serve a useful function. Too many antioxidants
may knock out the beneficial role of free radicals in your body.
Free radicals are how our body defends itself against infection.
I have seen people on high doses of C and E who develop more infections,
RC: The other point
to underscore here is that you believe the reason that studies
of nutrients come up with mixed results is not just because, say,
vitamin E or C is good for some and fails to help others-- it
is because it is good for some and bad for others, and that researchers
are not looking for the bad effect, because they are not looking
for the effect of nutrients on the autonomic nervous system. A
large part of your understanding of the patient comes from looking
at which particular portion of the nervous system is dominant,
NG: That's right. The
unconscious nervous system does many things in your body: it digests
food, controls glandular function, and controls heart rate and
body temperature, to name just a few of its actions. This unconscious
system is divided into two halves that work in opposition, but
together, in helping the body achieve homeostasis. The sympathetic
nervous system stimulates the adrenals and thyroid, and inhibits
others. The parasympathetic stimulates the liver, the pancreas,
and digestive tract, and inhibits others. They work together,
although they are in opposition. These are the two nervous systems
that together control your day-to-day physiological functioning.
RC: How do you determine
which part of the nervous system is dominant, and why is that
important to your therapy?
NG: Because out of
that we are able to determine which diet and supplements will
suit the patient best. Their sympathetic or parasympathetic dominance
tells me what kind of program they need.
RC: Let's say a person
comes to you who is parasympathetic dominant, and you put them
on the wrong diet, will you make things worse?
NG: You can kill them.
RC: Even if it is a
vegetarian diet that is low in fat?
dominant people need red meat three times per day. Putting them
on a vegetarian diet is like raising a lion on hay.
RC: Are there personality
types associated with these different types of autonomic dominance?
NG: Sympathetic dominants
are aggressive, type A businessmen that get up at six and get
more done by noon than the rest of us do in the whole day. They
are very ambitious, smart, and energetic in the morning. Parasympathetics
would like to sleep until noon, and are very creative. Artistic
ability tends to be in the parasympathetic side of the nervous
RC: Can people change
from one side to another?
NG: We are seeing people
who are the opposite of their genetic inheritance. Chemicals in
the environment have knocked out their strong nervous system.
Wrong diets have gummed up their works.
RC: We are told that
everyone should go on a diet high in complex carbohydrates. T.
Colin Campbell and others suggest this protects against various
degenerative diseases. Is this some form of insanity, in light
of the ample evidence that we are all biochemically unique?
NG: It is absolute
insanity to suggest that the whole human species as different
as it is could be put on one diet. The human species occupies
every ecological niche from the arctic circle to equatorial rain
forests and there are different foods available in these regions,
and people have had to adjust. There is no way one diet is suitable
for everybody. The Eskimos are one of the most famous meat eating
peoples. They live in the Arctic circle. They have no growing
season. They have no fruits. They have no vegetables. The only
Eskimos that could survive are those that eat a high fat, high
RC: The Eskimos are
dying off. Don't they thrive on a diet of 80% saturated fat? Is
an increase in carbohydrates in their diet killing them?
NG: Yes. And they were
among the healthiest people in the world until they switched their
diet to a Western one. When they cut their saturated fat consumption
from 80% to 40%, they began to develop our pattern of degenerative
diseases. For them, fat was the perfect fuel. There was a study
that showed that Eskimos lacked the enzymes to digest complex
carbohydrates. Zookeepers know that if you raise a lion or tiger
on grains and beans it is going to die. Eskimos need red meat
as well, to function effectively.
RC: And right now you
are doing some controlled trials.
NG: That's right. We
are doing controlled clinical trials with pancreatic cancer. Our
hope is that once these studies are published and we document
that this program can indeed work, the academic medical world
will start putting money behind it. Then we can train other doctors
to do it.
RC: You don't accept
every patient that comes to your door. And it not simply a space
or time limitation. Do you reject a patient if their immune system
has been destroyed by conventional therapies?
NG: Most of the patients
I see have had chemo or radiation. It is a question of amount
and the type of cancer where it is being used. RC: There are many
books in health food stores which say that the underlying cause
of disease is that we are all too acid, in large part because
of a meat-based diet, and need to push our body towards a more
alkaline state by eating more fruits, vegetables, almonds, millet,
NG: That is absolutely
incorrect. Sympathetic dominants tend to be more acid, parasympathetic
dominants tend to be too alkaline, and balanced people tend to
be somewhere in between. Sympathetic dominants do well on alkalinizing
foods like fruits and vegetables. Parasympathetic dominants need
acid forming foods, of which red meat is the most powerful.
RC: Dr. Kelley's wife
got into trouble with a vegetarian diet, didn't she?
NG: After Kelley cured
himself of cancer on a vegetarian diet, he assumed that it was
the perfect diet and that the whole world should be on it. He
put his wife on this diet to help with her allergies. Initially
she did well. Then she began to do worse and worse; He began to
make the diet more strictly vegetarian, eventually putting her
on all raw fruits and vegetables with no protein at all. She ended
up in a near coma. He was confronted with the fact that here he
was the great nutrition doctor, and he almost killed his wife
with the wrong diet. He was going to have to call an ambulance
and put her in the hospital. He figured the only thing he hadn't
done was put her on red meat. Initially she refused, but he convinced
her. He put some meat in the blender, and fed it to her, and within
an hour she was feeling better. She has been eating red meat two
to three times per day since. That's almost twenty-five years
ago. She has been in excellent health since.
RC: Very few people
are looking into the effect of macro- and micronutrients on the
autonomic nervous system function. This may turn out to be, as
you believe, one of the most important ways our diet and nutrient
intake affects health. Dr. Gonzalez, thanks for being with us.
NG: My pleasure, Robert.
