All of us have been touched in some way with the sadness, pain, and loss related to cancer. Today on Couch Talk I am talking with a rising star in the prevention and cure of cancer. Leigh Erin Connealy, M.D. She is a brilliant physician and also a woman who has dealt with hormone problems and cancer concerns herself â€“Â throughout most of her lifeÂ â€“ due to having been a DES baby. Remember DES? Many women in the â€™50s, who had pregnancy issues, were put on this so-called wonder drugâ€Śand then the research caught up with just how toxic this miracle drug was. DES usage by their moms during pregnancy sentenced all of those babies to lifelong risks for cancer and hormone complications, including infertility challenges. Well, Leighâ€™s mom had to take DES during her pregnancy due to some ongoing bleeding. Being a DES baby is probably one of the reasons Leigh became a doctor in the first placeâ€Śand definitely impacted her focus on and passion about cancer prevention and the importance of hormone dysfunction. Says Leigh, â€œYour Mess Becomes Your Message.â€ So I am so excited for you all to meet and hear from Leigh today. She is here to talk about how NOT to get cancer and how to keep your hormones healthy! Meet Leigh Erin Connealy, M.D. One thing that stands out the most when talking with Leigh is her dedication to helping people optimize their health. And part of that passion is in getting out the message that cancer is or can be reversible and preventable. She shared with us some cutting-edge diagnostic testing that can also now be done. So exciting. So a bit more about this wonderful physician and cancer expert: Dr. Connealy attended the University of Texas School of Public Health, and then attended the University of Health Sciences Chicago Medical School.Â She completed her post-graduate training at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. She began practicing medicine in 1986.Â In 1992, she founded the Center For New Medicine in Irvine, California, where she serves as Medical Director. Dr. Connealy writes and has been published in monthly health columns for â€œCoastâ€ and â€œOC Healthâ€, Orange County based magazines and is published in â€œThe Journal of the American Nutraceutical Associationâ€ (JANA), along withÂ Healthy Aging MagazineÂ &Â Townsend Letter. She is also a frequent guest speaker on health topics. Dr. Connealy has published a ground-breaking book, â€œThe Cancer Revolutionâ€ which discusses how to reverse and prevent cancer. Weâ€™ll be talking a bit about her book today. Â Listen to the interview and you will learn: Why a normal scan or blood test does not mean you donâ€™t have cancer. How we all can have cancer cells circulating in our bodyâ€Śand our bodyâ€™s immune system should be killing themâ€Śbut if notâ€Śone cancer cell may turn into a tumor on a scan or ultrasoundÂ 10 years laterâ€Ś The cure for cancer is not treatment, it is prevention. The bio-markers that every woman and man should know that relate to their cancer risk That the right DHEA level can reduce all disease and illnesses 80%! Amazing cutting-edge tests such as RGCC circulating tumor cells testingâ€Śtesting for cells that are responsible for 95% of metastases. The importance of healthy hormones, and how bioidentical hormones can help prevent cancer as well as other inflammatory diseases. And so much moreâ€Ś And one important point that I feel many of us do not think of is thatÂ cancer is not an â€œoldâ€ personâ€™s diseaseâ€Śmaybe it used to be, primarilyâ€Śbut today young people are having old peopleâ€™s problems. Leigh talks about this, how she sees young men in their 20â€™s already having low testosterone issues due to hormone imbalances, due to the xenoestrogens (endocrine disruptors) they are exposed to in the environment. Says Leigh,Â â€œI used to tell people you have a warranty until youâ€™re 40. But you donâ€™t anymore.â€ So it is important â€“Â even when youngerÂ â€“ to understand all that you can do to prevent cancer, including diet, healthy detox, getting the quality of sleep you need, good stress management, the right nutrients (thru supplementation if necessary), etc.! The Cancer RevolutionÂ Â Dr. Connealy wrote the bookÂ The Cancer RevolutionÂ because she wanted people to know what is out there and whatâ€™s available. Most people think that surgery, chemo, and radiation are the only options. Her message is that first, early detection and prevention work. It is the cure for cancer. Number two, if you get diagnosed with cancer, partner with a quarterback functional integrative medicine that takes care of you.
