Guest Bio: Leigh Erin Connealy, MD
Leigh-Erin-ConnealyDr. Leigh Erin Connealy attended the University of Texas School of Public Health, and then attended the University of Health Sciences Chicago Medical School. She completed her post-graduate training at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.

Dr. Connealy soon realized that conventional medicine had very limited returns and did not always improve the health of her patients. Her patients were hungry for alternative approaches for improving their health. This led her to study integrative and complementary therapies, and since then she has revolutionized the landscape of medicine. Dr. Connealy feels that we must treat the patient with the disease and not the disease of the patient. She has discovered that many factors contribute to the disease process; therefore, many modalities must be used to reverse it.

Her approach treats the WHOLE person, and is open to all potential treatment possibilities. She has over twenty years of experience in finding the "root cause of an illness" and has taken numerous advanced courses, including homeopathic, nutritional and lifestyle approaches, while studying disease, chronic illness, and cancer treatments. She has a true passion to change her patients’ lives, and give them their life back.

Dr. Connealy began practicing medicine in 1986. In 1992, she founded the Center For New Medicine in Irvine, California, where she serves as Medical Director. Her practice is firmly based in the belief that strictly treating the health problems with medications does not find the root cause of the illness.

The Center offers a vast array of services for men, women and children, including the latest in cancer therapies, detoxification, holistic dentistry, nutrition, fitness and weight loss, cosmetic/laser treatment, pain management, allergy therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, sleep disorders, and much more. They also provide specialized services in gynecology, natural fertility, and menopause, hormone imbalances for all ages, healthy sexuality, healthy aging, and personalized preventive medicine. Some of the chronic conditions treated at the clinic include cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, neurological and auto-immune disorders.

Dr. Connealy writes and has been published in monthly health columns for “Coast” and “OC Health”, Orange County based magazines and is published in “The Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association” (JANA), along with Healthy Aging Magazine & Townsend Letter.
She is a frequent writer for Natural News and Newport Natural Health on line magazines. For 10 years she was a weekly co-host on Frank Jordan’s national radio show “Healthy, Wealthy and Wise” on Sirius/XM Channel 131 digital cable. Dr. Connealy is a frequent guest speaker at professional organizations and on cable television shows when highlighting health topics like KTBN or Know the Cause with Doug Kaufman airing across the country periodically.

EP 47 - The Cancer Revolution: Rethinking Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment
When it comes to cancer, conventional doctors are trained to treat their patients exclusively with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

These methods are grueling on the whole body, and they don't treat beyond the tumor or the cancer itself. The focus is on the disease, not the whole person.

Because of this, the outcomes in conventional medicine can be bleak.

But, it doesn't have to be this way.

Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy has developed a whole-person approach to treating cancer, and these treatments have helped thousands of patients through her Cancer Center for Healing.

In her book, The Cancer Revolution, Dr. Connealy shows you how to get to the root causes of cancer and the practical steps you can take to get back on the path to healing, including balancing your body's chemistry with nutritional supplements, following a healthy food plan, detoxifying your body and home, exercising regularly, getting deep restful sleep every night, practicing stress reduction techniques, and putting together a supportive healing team.

Chemotherapy and radiation have their place in treatment, but in many cases, they are simply not enough, because cancer isn't caused by one thing, but by many different factors. All of these causes must be addressed, not just the tumor.

Dr. Connealy joins Dr. Taz to discuss how you can equip yourself to make impactful, achievable lifestyle choices that fight the root of the disease, and that offer hope for recovery and a cancer-free life.
