ANNOUNCING NEW BOOK RELEASE:
The Maverick M.D. – Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez and His Fight for a New Cancer Treatment
Why would no one believe the Ivy-League trained Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D. when a pilot study for his treatment of pancreatic cancer showed promising results? Dr. Gonzalez worked as a lone wolf, removed from the inner circle of cancer research that he so revered. He, his patients, his wife, and a handful of prominent scientists and supporters thought he was onto something—a nutritional approach to cancer and other degenerative diseases—that was beyond the imaginations of mainstream conventional medicine.
When Nick Gonzalez was a medical student, he stood beside his father’s deathbed and vowed that he would find a cure for cancer. Gonzalez imagined his future as a researcher toiling away in a lab in Memorial Sloan Kettering, working on conventional approaches to the disease. Yet Dr. Gonzalez’s life was anything but conventional. At the urging of Noble Prize Winner Linus Pauling, Nick Gonzalez had already left an accomplished journalism career and entered Cornell Medical School. Dr. Gonzalez’s path took another turn when he met the controversial Dr. William Donald Kelley, a dentist who, through an alternative nutritional approach, had arrested his own pancreatic cancer.
The Maverick M.D. is the story of how Dr. Gonzalez perfected the scientific theory behind Dr. Kelley’s work and put the protocol into practice. He spent nearly 30 years treating patients with the most serious conditions–from cancer to diabetes to lupus. Dr. Gonzalez could have gone to Mexico where his family had lived and set up a cancer clinic alongside other alternative practitioners. But he wasn’t satisfied as an outlier in the medical community. Instead, he stayed in New York City, secured the funding, and fought to have his protocol tested through a properly run clinical trial.
Nick Gonzalez drew courage from his Christian faith, from his Mexican-Italian-American family, and from key loved ones, colleagues and mentors. The Maverick M.D. dramatizes Dr. Gonzalez’s backstory, his relentless fight for the truth and his never-ending battles with the forces that sought to squelch his research, keeping his healing discoveries in medicine from reaching the world.
Praise for The Maverick M.D.: “With a captivating narrative style, Mary Swander takes the reader on an intense journey which was the life and work of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez. Every physician and any layfolk interested in health should know of this man. If the medical science establishment was a true meritocracy, his name would be household.
To the very end, he faced them all with resounding dignity and resolve, while continuing to heal the toughest cancer cases at an incomparable success rate.”
