Christine E.A. Gonzalez, NMD, PhD.
Founder, Wellness Institute Inc. California, USA /
Manila, Philippines / Lourdes, France
Before going into Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (NMD), Dr. Christine’s undergraduate was in computer science and afterwards she pursued a degree in law. Her first job was with Big Blue (IBM) in Silicon Valley, California. All that changed when her older brother was diagnosed with liver cancer and given three months to live. She immediately took leave from law school, and, driven by her strong desire to help him, began extensively researching cancer. This path led her from Hoxsey clinic and Gerson Institute in Tijuana, Mexico to the world of natural medicine. When she was ready to apply everything she learned from those facilities, he died.
Angry and broken from her brother’s death at the age of 40, she was impelled to further her studies in natural medicine. Dr. Christine holds a degree in Naturopathic Medicine from John Bastyr College of Naturopathic Medicine, Clayton College of Natural Medicine and PanAmerican University of Natural Science and Medicine and PhDs in Health and Human Sciences and Environmental Sciences from Columbia Pacific University. She also holds diplomates in Homeopathic Medicine, Clinical Herbal Therapy, Clinical Aromatherapy, Advanced Microscopy, Computer Regulation Thermography, Meridian Stress Assessment, Biological Terrain Assessment, and Lymphology & Physiology.
Before coming to the Philippines in 2001, she was working at her two clinics in Silicon Valley California: San Carlos and Milpitas. Furthermore, the need & quest for a more effective and safe natural protocols to treat cancer and other chronic diseases led her to do intensive research on tropical herbs combined with Western & Eastern remedies. Teaming up with our University of California, Berkeley Chemist/Physicist Joe Alvarez Navarro, Dr. Christine is the main formulator & developer of Herbiotics USA, Wellness Organics, and Krysty’s Naturally Healthy Skin.
Dr. Christine’s work leaned more and more towards the treatment of chronic diseases, especially cancer and auto-immune diseases. Early in 2008, the need for a solution to the current worldwide cancer crisis led her to dedicate her life towards cancer prevention and control through health education. Currently, she teaches Diploma & Certificate Courses at Integrative Cancer Research Institute. She maintains clients in the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, France, Guam, Russia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore & Myanmar.

Dr. Christine’s unwavering dedication to the health of the planet and all future generations brought about her advocacies on cancer prevention and control through “CANSURVIVE PHILIPPINES”, children’s health by helping build “ZERO DENGUE COMMUNITIES” and now, help build a “CANCER FREE WORLD”.
