Resources: Research, Nutrition, Reading and More


Below are some links and resources that we have found valuable, both for ourselves and for our patients. 




The treatment program utilized by Dr. Nigh is grounded in pioneering research that spans over 100 years. Here are some links to the most important work.


John Beard was an embryologist who first understood the role of pancreatic enzymes in the control of cancer.


Ernst Krebs discovered the role of nitrilosides in the control of cancer. He believed cancer, like scurvy and pellegra, to be a disease that results from a dietary deficiency, in this case a deficiency of nitrilosides.


Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize in 1936 for his discovery of the unique type of metabolism utilized by cancer cells. His discovery is, to this day, among the most important discoveries in all of cancer research.


Thomas Seyfried, PhD, has published extensively on both the science and the treatment of cancer as a metabolic disease. His book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease brought together the most important research. In addition he has published dozens of articles that illustrate the clinical benefits of this approach to cancer treatment. See examples of that research here and here and here and here.


Dr. Dominic D'Agostino is a frequent collaborator with Dr. Seyfried and has done his own pioneering work on cancer research. Dr. D'Agostino's unique contribution is related to the synergistic combination of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and the ketogenic diet in the treatment of cancer. See examples of his research here and here and here.


All other components of Dr. Nigh's treatment program are well-supported by research. Each one is utilized in the program in a very specific sequence. Some of those include:


Alpha Lipoic Acid

Dichloroacetate (here and here and here)


Vitamin C (here and here and here)

Metformin (here and here and here)

Low Dose Naltrexone

Triiodothyronine (T3)
