“We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.”

He describes how individual variation in nervous system function means that different individuals require different types of diets ranging from largely raw food and vegetarian to diets high in fatty red meat, and every variation in between in order to achieve good health.

Drawing upon more than twenty-five years of private practice in New York, and prior research by Drs. Pottenger, Gellhorn, and Kelley, he also explains why nutritional supplementation protocols similarly need to be individualized for optimal autonomic nervous system function. Discover the secret of how different nutrients regulate the 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. Most likely once per month, or once per quarter.

Beyond the potential health and longevity upsides there were also a couple of others I was particularly interested in. And other life challenges also seem to dim in their intensity and importance. A new life experience: What would it feel like to fast for 5 days? How would it effect my body? We should all experience the extremes of the human experience provided they are within the limits of safety and healthy. Going to the extremes to get a real feel for the breadth of life is part of living a life well lived.

My metabolism switched from glucose to ketones and fatty acids by the end of the 3rd day, which fits with what is generally expected based on the standard biochemistry literature. Overall, I felt less mentally sharp and found the fast hardest between the end of day 1 till around beginning of day 3. In my case the switch in the blood results follows closely the ease of the experience for me — once blood ketones and glucose inverted the experience was easier.

Seyfried recommends the use of a Glucose-Ketone Index for monitoring the therapeutic value of the fast against cancer. So I was in the therapeutic zone for all of days 4 and 5. My blood glucose, ketone and GKIC markers settled into the expected ranges Seyfried outlines in his book for the fast. When I hit the hour end of 5 day mark I dug into a couple of big bowls of bone broth.

Quickly full and satisfied seemingly as if the fast had never taken place. The next day I had a higher carb than usual breakfast. Despite this my ketones stayed high and actually hit their peak of the whole experiment 6. So it follows that there would be a lag in the switch back to primarily glucose metabolism.

I consciously made an effort to eat as per usual to see if it the weight would naturally come back on. Actively compensating for this in between future fasts will require consciously eating to gain weight. I also tracked my HRV with the ithlete app, my daily meditation sessions with the Muse Calm and my mental performance via reaction tests at Quantifed Mind.

However, looking at what I collected, I plan to take a closer look at mental performance and HRV in future fasts. First thing in the morning HRV dipped at the start of the fast day 1 and 2 and go back to my normal range from then on. This is a pretty good fit with how I felt during the fast. Something to keep an eye on for future fasts especially as I have to deal with my own personal variable — adrenal fatigue.

I have documented adrenal fatigue currently low cortisol output as a knock on effect of the chronic stress from lyme disease and babesiosis infections. This may have been behind or contributed to my less consistent sleep and shorter duration sleep as noted before. It is very common even fashionable to fast on meditation retreats.

The idea the retreats promote is that fasting helps to calm the mind. Two of my fellow entrepreneur buddies Patrick Stiles and Patrick Kelly pjkmedia recently also did the 5 day water fast so we caught up to share notes on our experiences.

Our experiences turned out to be pretty different in some areas. You can listen to our full note swapping discussion in this episode.
