Doctor González is one of the founders of InBioMed, leaders in the development of non-toxic chemotherapy treatments for cancer. The findings of their work with Intravenous Vitamin C as an anti-cancer agent, published in 2002, were confirmed by the NIH in 2005. They published the first Phase-I clinical study utilizing Intravenous Vitamin C for treatment of terminal cancer patients in 2005, and also published in 2005 the most comprehensive review on Vitamin C and Cancer, as a follow-up on the work of two times Nobel Laureate, Dr. Linus C. Pauling. They have brought many new concepts into the scientific field, such as the Bioenergetic theory of carcinogenesis, the systemic saturation phenomenon of intravenous vitamin C, the metabolic correction concept for disease treatment and prevention. Dr. Gonzalez was inducted to the International Hall of fame of Orthomolecular Medicine April, 2016. He is one of the first hispanoamerican and Puerto Rican to be inducted to the International Hall of fame of Orthomolecular Medicine.
Books: Doctors Gonzalez, Miranda-Massari and Saul’s book “I Have Cancer What Should I do: The Orthomolecular Guide to Cancer Management” provides evidence based recommendations for an integrative approach for those dealing with cancer and seeking to improve quality of life and survival.

Dr. Michael J. Gonzalez main research interest is the development of effective, non-toxic treatments for chronic diseases, especially cancer. Changing the biochemical conditions that promote, develop and sustain the malignant state can produce inhibition of malignant cell proliferation, increase aerobic metabolism and achieve re-differentiation. We are also interested in the development of non-toxic therapeutic strategies that enhance the effectiveness of other treatments or that reduce their toxicity.
