Nutritionally Controlling the Autonomic Nervous System by Pat Davidson

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.

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. I have long suspected that my autonomic nervous system was imbalanced, leaning more toward the sympathetic side than the parasympathetic. I now understand why I have had the issues that I have had over the years. The book is written in an easy to understand way and is well-researched and documented. I cannot say enough about it. I finally understand why my autonomic nervous system has functioned the way it does and how I can compensate for some undesirable aspects of it.

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 [1]. 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 [4].
