The Impact of Nutrition on the Nervous System, Part 1
June 22, 2017
Metabolic Typing, Acid/Alkaline, and the impact of nutrition on the Autonomic Nervous System. Dr. Colin Ross was so impressed with the miraculous recoveries of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez’s cancer patients that he sought to preserve his legacy. Why is it that some people thrive on a vegetarian diet, others become weak and sick? Conversely, Paleo or ketogenic diets work great for certain individuals, while others tolerate them poorly? The late Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez addresses this conundrum in his posthumously published book, "Nutrition and the Autonomic Nervous System." The book explains the Kelly Metabolic Types which range from Sympathetic Dominant to Parasympathetic Dominant, each calling for a specific diet and supplement regimen. It turns out that most solid tumors like pancreas and colon are responsive to a primarily vegetarian raw foods diet; patients with “blood cancers” like lymphoma, leukemia and multiple myeloma tend to be supported by diets higher in animal protein. For a Sympathetic Dominant, B12 and Calcium are counter-productive, but they benefit Parasympathetic Dominants; Conversely, magnesium, and potassium are great for Sympathetic Dominants, but Parasympathetic Dominants need less of these nutrients. Kelly’s scheme was refined by Dr. Gonzalez into a remarkably successful protocol for cancer and other challenging medical conditions with the incorporation of mega-doses of pancreatic enzymes and detoxification protocols like liver flushes and coffee enemas.
