Gonzales succinctly explains the functions of these two divisions of the ANS, and how Frances Pottenger Senior investigated the effects of nutrient supplemental on the ANS. Non-invasive markers of gut wall integrity in health and disease. How to Think About Food The main thing that I think about with food is the way it effects my autonomic nervous system.

This book summarizes decades of scientific research and patient treatments based on the foundational principles of how the autonomic nervous system works.
It shows once and for all that we are not alike and there are definite distinctions in autonomic nervous system function between us. Those operating differences influence what foods, supplements and diet are optimal for helping us operate in a healthy, balanced mode. This book explains the different types and provides high level guidance regarding what foods and supplements work for each type.
Leave behind any notion you have that there is a "one diet fits all" approach to health. Ever wonder why you can tolerate citrus fruits but your friend can't? Or why you don't feel well after a heavy meat dinner but your friend can't live without it? Or why your friend can't tolerate Magnesium supplements even though they are supposed to be good for you? This book explains why. I have followed the work of Dr.
Nicholas Gonzalez for many years. I have read each of their individual books. Gonzalez did a fabulous job taking the key principles from the research of each of these Doctors and putting it into a very readable and understandable format that can be consumed by a lay person.
This is a must read for anyone who is serious about applying nutritional principles for optimizing health. Despite curing thousands of patients or terminal diagnoses of cancer, the genius and radicality of Dr. Gonzalez has yet to be truly discovered. Gonzalez offered the world a true alternative cancer cure for the modern age, one that is accessible, being that it is lifestyle and supplement-based, and effective, with historical and modern science to support its undoubted effectiveness.
In this way, the Gonzalez Protocol is a marriage between conventional and alternative medicine, with the scientific rigor of experimentation, mechanism, and theory of the former and the holistic, individualized, natural, noninvasive, and practical approach of the latter.
Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the Gonzalez Protocol is the individualization of diet based on anthropology, biochemistry, and autonomic physiology. Nowhere, even in alternative circles, is there a dietary approach that is so comprehensive and clinically relevant. I have searched far and wide for a more thorough explanation of the historical and scientific background of this wonderful paradigm of nutrition, and with this book, my search is over. I recommend this book to all medical practitioners who are serious about using nutrition clinically, as well as anyone who suffers the confusion of modern dietary dogmas that overgeneralizes nutritional recommendations and reduces nutrition to its biochemical components without a large understanding of the whole.
Gonzalez's work may challenge much of what people think they know about nutrition, physiology, and medicine. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Well written, informative, though rather technical. Might be best suited to a healthcare professional or someone highly interested in scientific theories or methods. That being said, I not in healthcare but interested in good health found this fascinating and will use many of the diet tips for my particular metabolic type.
As a patient I found this book extremely helpful, it explains the science behind the protocol that he uses in a way that made a lot of sense to me. It has helped me to understand why it works and just how important it is to balance our autonomic nervous system to be well. One of the most common questions I encounter is, "Where can I learn more about Dr. This book details the foundational premise of his paradigm-shifting approach to healing degenerative and terminal illnesses.
His writing feels like a friend's voice and his wisdom feels like the teacher we most need in this time of confusion around the true potential for regeneration and radical healing. This book is a powerful contribution toward the legacy of the most important figure in modern medicine. A legacy that will never die. It is very rare that new and a very different approach to a disease that has probably been part of us since our inception is accepted by clinicians who blindly treat cancer with chemotherapy and radiation.
Dr Gonzalez was truly brilliant. This book is amazing. Chi square test show a highly significant interrelationship between changes in BMI and changes in 24 hour heart rate. Micro nutrition and the role of omega- 3-fatty supplementation was measured and discussed. Our data were compared with data of undernourished and stunted children from the literature.
We concluded that not current BMI but rather metabolic rate predominantly determines intrinsic heart rate. We propose a comprehensive model to explain the impact of nutrition on the autonomic nervous system and discuss the therapeutic consequences. The concept of nutritional transition was developed to explain the changes in the worldwide prevalence of under nutrition and obesity, according to the changes seen over the last decades in lifestyles and standards of living .
Nutritional related disease burden and mortality is very high: Stunting is the most frequent consequence of under nutrition in millions of children below 5 years. Stunting, low weight and low birth weight, altogether are responsible for 2. There is strong evidence that poor growth within the first 24 months due to malnutrition is associated with delayed mental development, and that there is a relationship between impaired growth status and both poor school performance and reduced intellectual achievement .
At the same time and in part within the same countries, overweight and obesity individuals have reached epidemic proportions, affecting 1.
