Treating “The Whole Person, The Patient With The Disease and Not The Disease Of The Patient With Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy

We are thrilled to introduce today’s guest, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy. 

Dr. Connealy is a prominent leader in the Integrative and Functional Medical field with over 30 years of experience taking the best of all sciences, including homeopathic and conventional treatments for cancer, chronic illnesses, nutrition, and lifestyle approach. She is the Medical Director of two unique clinics in Irvine, CA: The Center for New Medicine and the Cancer Center for Healing. The combined clinics have become the largest integrative medical clinic in North America and are visited by patients worldwide, with 65,000 patients and growing. 

The Center For New Medicine focuses on prevention and internal medicine, early detection of disease and cancer, human optimization, yearly physicals, auto-immune disease, natural hormone replacement, chronic issues, and aesthetics. Dr. Connealy feels we must treat “the whole person” – the patient with the disease and not the disease of the patient while determining the origin of the illness. 

Dr. Connealy created the Cancer Center for Healing because of the epidemic spreading of cancer. Patients receive scientifically based treatments along with integrative protocols. She has created an acute awareness for the need to focus on cancer prevention, providing unique testing to determine the early stages of cancer, years before a scan reveals or recognizes it. For example, through RGCC genetic testing, Dr. Connealy and her skilled team can create personalized treatment plans for early to late-stage cancer patients. 

She has discovered that there are many factors that can contribute to the disease process and many modalities can help to reverse it, including spending the proper time with each patient.  Dr. Connealy and her team of practitioners make this happen each day at her multi-disciplined “state of the art” clinic while providing quality life treatments.

Dr. Connealy is the author of two books, “Be Perfectly Healthy” published in 2009 and “The Cancer Revolution”  in 2017, which has revolutionized the landscape of medicine. In 2017, she was named one of the top 50 functional & integrative doctors in the country. In 2018, Dr. Connealy began a TV Series as host of “Dr. Detective TV” airing on the JUL-TV Television Network.  In addition, she writes for many publications including Townsend Letter – a prominent medical magazine, featuring Mike Adams, Josh Axe, and Ben Greenfield. 

She serves on the board for Dr. Josh Axe, ACAM, and ACIM Connect. Dr. Connealy imparts her wisdom in educating medical practitioners from all over the world, as well as public speaking engagements, webinars, and podcasts that include: The Truth About Cancer with Ty & Charlene Bollinger, Answer to Cancer with Dr. Patrick Gentempo, a variety of series with Nathan Crane, Kellyann Petrucci, Ryan Sternagel, Jonathan Otto, Lynne McTaggart, Ben Greenfield, and Dr. Mercola.  

In today’s fantastic conversation we discuss treating the whole person, why people get sick and different types of prevention.

We also dive into breast cancer, cancer in general, and how your mindset and stress levels can impact how you can cure cancer.

Dr. Connealy shares her four pillar approach to healing, and offers so many fantastic tips and strategies to implement immediately. We left this conversation feeling inspired and wanting to fly out to California to have a check-up with Dr. Connealy. You won’t want to miss this episode!
