Dr Carlos Garcia/Utopia Wellness Cancer Treatment

March 26th, 2017

Dr Carlos Garcia

Utopia Wellness is a leading-edge medical center that offers integrative, holistic, patient-focused medical treatments. Under the direction of Carlos M. Garcia, M.D., programs designed for anyone who wants to enjoy optimal health are offered: Whether suffering from a chronic illness or simply wanting to prevent disease. Our extensive menu of wellness programs complement each other by addressing all issues related to well-being.

Dr. Carlos M. Garcia M.D. received his formal medical training at the University of Massachusetts, Medical School followed by an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Anesthesia, both at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, PA.

After moving to the Tampa Bay area in 1984, he began his practice as an Anesthesiologist at Bayfront Medical Center, Edward White Hospital, and Physicians’ Community Hospital.

Over his years working in hospitals, he came to realize that traditional medicine was driven more by the profits of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals than it was on providing the patient with the best possible care. So in 1996, Dr. Garcia redirected his medical focus to natural alternative health care including holistic medicine, integrative cancer treatments, Chelation therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement, IV vitamins and antioxidants, and weight loss. In all of these areas, he uses non-harmful and natural alternatives to conventional treatments. His passion to help others achieve optimal health through natural medicine led him to found Utopia Wellness, where he incorporates the best that medicine has to offer, traditional and alternative.

Dr. Garcia’s focus over the past several years has been on helping people suffering from cancer and its related diseases. His approach is holistic in that he addresses not only the tumor or cancer but also on the whole person and the cause of the cancer. To be truly cancer free for life, you must identify and eliminate the underlying cause of the disease.  In 2012, Dr. Garcia published his book Cancer is a Symptom: The Real Cause Revealed where he addresses the prospect that cancer is merely a symptom and unless you heal the underlying cause, you will never be truly cancer free.He also co authored Cancer Free with Bill Henderson.

Dr. Garcia is a member of ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine), ICIM (International College of Integrative Medicine), and the American Holistic Health Association.  Additionally, Dr. Garcia holds certifications in Chelation Therapy from the American Board of Chelation Therapy, and has given numerous lectures on various health topics to professionals, medical students and the public, has had a radio talk show, and has been interviewed for several health related television news topics.

Can a Capsule w/Cameras perform Colonoscopy?

March 22nd, 2017

A new study reported in Science Digest  says “the noninvasive alternative to colonoscopy is as easy as swallowing a pill.”  In the procedure the patient ingests a capsule containing two miniature cameras and takes pictures of as as it travels through the digestive tract, it takes pictures and transmits them to a recorder the patient wears on his belt.  After traveling through the digestive tract the capsule with cameras  is excreted and flushed down the toilet. The camera identify polyps the same as the colonoscopy except the colonoscopy removes the polyps that are precancerous during the procedure.  With the camera a colonoscopy will be necessary if polyps are identified but otherwise the patient in not subjected to the invasive procedure. Preparation for the procedure is the same as for a colonoscopy that includes a bowel cleanse. However, the procedure requires no anesthesia, is painless, the patient does not have to take the day off for the procedure. nor arrange for transportation to and from the procedure. The new procedure has been approved by the FSA for people who are not eligible for colonoscopy for the following reasons: 1) the patients colon makes it difficult to guide a colonoscope through the entir colon, or 2) the patient has lower gastrointestinal bleeding but is not suitable for a colonoscopy because of the risk posed for complications due to age or other reasons.

My Guest, Dr Leigh Erin Connealy. M.D. will discuss her new book: The Cancer Revolution A Groundbreaking Program to Reverse and Prevent Cancer

Every year, over 1.5 million people in the US are diagnosed with cancer. Nearly everyone has been touched by this disease—be it their own diagnosis or that of a family member or friend. When faced with the news they have cancer, people start searching for safe and effective treatments. In The Cancer Revolution: A Groundbreaking Program to Reverse and Prevent Cancer, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy shares integrative medicine techniques, lifestyle approaches, and wellness plans for cancer patients.

Dr. Connealy suggests that it’s not enough to undergo traditional treatments alone. Drawing upon the homeopathic, nutritional, bioenergetics, regenerative, and antiaging disciplines, The Cancer Revolution offers six “Revolutionary Cancer Strategies” to provide better management of cancer, including:

        Let  Food Be Your Medicine ·       Get Moving to Get Well
        Remove Toxins to Boost Your Health ·       Reduce Stress and Reclaim Your Life
·       Harness the Power of Supplements ·       Strengthen Your Immune System with Sleep

By detoxifying, protecting, and providing nutrients to our bodies, Dr. Connealy suggests that we can all lead longer, higher quality lives—even when faced with this formidable disease. She also highlights how these practices can reduce your risk of getting cancer in the first place.

Leigh Erin Connealy, MD, attended the University of Texas School of Public Health and graduated from the University of Health Sciences Chicago Medical School. Her post-graduate training was completed at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Is Type of Sugar Also A Risk Factor of Diseases?

March 10th, 2017

Holistic-Health-Show-with-Dr-Carl-O-Helvie

A new study published in The American Journal of Physiology –Heart and Circulatory Physiology concluded that the type of sugar youeat–and not just caloric count–may dtermine your risk of chronic disease. This animal study compared the effects of two types of sugar on metabolic and vascular function.

In the research female rats were given a liquid solution of glucose (form of sugar resulting from carbohydrate breakdown in the body) or fructose(sugar found in fruit and fruit juice) in addition to their normal diet of solid food. Subjects were given the sweetened liquids for eight weeks that is roughly equilavent to humans eating large amounts of sugar for six years. The sugar fed rats were compared with a control group that received plain drinking water with solid food.

Researchers found that although both sugar groups consumed more calories than the control group the total caloric intake of the glucose-fed rats was higher than the fructose group. In addition, “despite the difference, only the fructose group exhibited a significant increase in final body weight.” Besides a higher weight gain, the fructose group showed more markers of vascular disease and liver damage than the glusose group including high triglycerides, increased liver weight, decreased fat burning in the liver (that can contribute to fatty liver) and impaired relaxation of the aorta that can affect blood pressure.

Research suggest that an increase in the amount of calories consumed due to sweeteners is not the only factor involved in long-term health risks. The type of sugar may also have a role in increasing risk factors of heart diusease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

Can Gene Inactivation Prevent Aging and Cancer?

March 8th, 2017

logo7952801_md (1)

A new study published in the journal Nature concluded that every body cell contains the complete DNA library and the so called methyl groups regulate the DNA library in tissues so that only the genetic information needed in that tissue is expressed. Now for the first time, researchers verified that a lack of methyl groups in the gene body leads to an incorrect gene activation and, subsequently may lead to the emergence of cancer.

Each body cell contains the entire building plan of the whole organism written in the DNA and comprises single genes that determine the specific attributes of the individual.  Gene expression builds tissue cells with tissue-specific attributes. Thus, genes information is activated that forms cells identified as intestinal cells or lung cells etc. In this regulated process methyl groups play an important role. If they are enzymatically bound to a gene’s starting point, known as the promoter, the respective gene is inactivated and the DNA is methylated. As we age and develop age-related diseases such as cancer the activation of genetic information is increasingly defective. However, until now, the detailed processes of these errors and the role of  DNA methylation  in these processes has been poorly understood.

Researchers have known for some time that DNA methylation at the promoter of a gene functions as an on/off switch. However, it was unknown in epigenetics why DNA within the gene body housing the important genetic information is methylated also which was answered in this research. This research showed that genes also aberrant activated if–beyond promoters–DNA methylation is missing within the gene body. Subsequently aberrant proteins are produced that impinge on the cell structure that result in massive disruption of the function and identity of a cell and cell degradation occurs and cancer may emerge.  Researchers concluded “this new knowledge that a lack of DNA methylation at the gene body  may lead to the production of aberrant proteins, might offer a target for cancer therapy. If we succeed to find a way to traffic methyl groups to non-methylated DNA sequences of cancer cells, we could possibly stop proliferation of these cells.”

Cheryl Boyles  tells us her story below. In June 2000 I was 33 years old, working as a wildlife biologist in Oregon, married to a wonderful husband for 10 years, and the mother of two amazing sons that were 1 and 3 years old.  I was loving life; then overnight my life changed.  I began having headaches that felt like my skull was going to explode.  An MRI showed my brain was hemorrhaging.  I went into surgery and an acorn sized grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) brain tumor was removed.  I was told I had less than a year to live.I quit my job, and focused on being a mother and fighting brain cancer.  I went through radiation, but chose not to take chemotherapy.  The chemo would only add 3 months to my life, but quality of life would be miserable.

I decided to take more of a natural “alternative” approach, trying to boost my own immune system.  My good cells outnumbered my bad cancer cells! I started eating organic, following a low carbohydrate diet, exercising, simplifying life and nursing a positive attitude, taking acupuncture, many supplements, cannabis, some “off label” prescriptions (like Metformin), and most of all leaning on God for strength which feeds me with hope.

Over the 16 years fighting the terminal brain cancer, I’ve unfortunately was hit with six recurrences. The fact that I have survived is unbelievable.  My doctors even say so.  Most people with the GBM die with their first recurrence, which usually happens within the first few years.  To fight my recurrences, I mostly focused on my alternative actions, but also continued with some of the standard treatments.  I’ve been through six brain craniotomies, 6 week of conformation radiation, over 3 ½ years on the milder chemo called Temodar, and also what is called Gamma Knife radiation.

Taking this approach of combining many alternative and standard treatments, trying to hit the cancer from many angels, has become known at a “cocktail” approach.  It seems to be working for me, not that I’m cured, but I’m still alive and loving life.  Over the sixteen years I’ve had over 100 MRIs, and it’s great to say that my last MRI was clear, no seen GBM.I have become known in the “brain tumor world” as a long term survivor.  Patients and caregivers from around the USA and around the world contact me wanting to know “How do you do it?”  So I’ve put together a web page www.cherylbroyles-gbm.com, wrote a book called Life’s Mountains, and made some videos hoping to reach out and encourage others.

Now my husband and I have been married 26 years, growing stronger together.  My two boys are now 17 and 20 years old, both wanting to become wildlife biologists like mom and dad.   And over the years I’ve been blessed with many things.  Seeing life anew, learning to be content regardless of circumstances, enduring through the challenges, and living life in the moment.

Testing Edible Marijuana Driver Impairment

February 15th, 2017

Holistic-Health-Show-with-Dr-Carl-O-Helvie

Testing edible marijuana for driver impairment is the subject of new research published in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry. Although edible marijuana is becoming increasingly common there is little information on testing drivers following consumption.  This study evaluated the performance of roadside saliva tests  following consumption of edible tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Researchers observed that consumption of marijuana edibles have expanded along with legalized medical and recreational use and about 1/3 of all marijuana is now either eaten or ingested in drinks. Marijuana-associated  traffic accidents and fatalities have also increased in states where they have been legalized increasing in those states from 8.6% in 2007 to 12.6% in 20132014.

In the study researchers gave occasional and frequent marijuana smokers brownies laced with 50.6 mg of THC. Over the next 48 hours the researchers collected saliva and blood samples at several time points. Saliva samples were analyzed using the roadside screening devices , the Draeger Drug Test 5000 (DT5000) and Alere DDS2 (DDS2) that use a cutoff point of 5µg/L and 25µg/L respectively to determine someone who is positive or negative for marijuana use. These tests were then confirmed  using a standard laboratory method for marijuana testing–the liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry to analyze both the saliva and blood samples at different .THC cut off points ranging from 0.2µ/L to 25µg/L.

By comparing the roadside and the LC-MS/MS results, researchers determined that confirmation cutoffs for THC of >1 µg/L    and 0.2 µg/L led to the greater number of true positives both through the initial and through confirmation testings. Thus, saliva testing devices can successfully detect THC after ingestion of edible marijuana. Researchers recommended confirming edible marijuana use with saliva tests instead of blood tests due to a lack of correlation between the blood and saliva testing  over time.

Inflammation-Dr David Seaman and Cellular Expansion-Patti McNulty

February 12th, 2017

DrDSeaman

My next show on Saturday at 12 noon PST will include the following guests.

Dr. David Seaman was the first person to author a scientific paper that specifically hypothesized that diets can be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Since that paper was published in 2002, thousands of papers and numerous books have been published on the topic of diet and inflammation, which is now accepted as mainstream.

Dr. Seaman is a Professor of Clinical Sciences in the Chiropractic Medicine program at National University of Health Sciences in Pinellas Park, Fl. He has a BS from Rutgers University in 1982; a Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1986; and a MS in Bio/nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 1991

While in clinical practice in the late 1980’s, he became aware of the developing research that linked nutrition to the inflammatory process and noticed that appropriate dietary changes could significantly improve various musculoskeletal and visceral conditions. Based on this experience, he began to focus on nutritional approaches for inflammation/pain control and has followed the related scientific literature ever since. This led to the publication of the first book on nutrition for pain and inflammation, which was followed by many articles and book chapters devoted to this topic. His educational efforts resulted in being awarded the 2006 Academician of the Year by the American Chiropractic Association.

P McNulty

Patti McNulty began her education with four years of intensive training in a combined mental health/addictions and family counseling program. Subsequently, she spent twelve years providing both inpatient and outpatient addiction services to a range of psychiatric hospitals. She was then the primary Employee Assistance Program counselor for JFK and LaGuardia Airports in New York, where employees could receive counseling and addictions treatment on-site.

In 1996, she was awarded a New York State citation for her work with the survivors and employees involved in the Flight 800 plane crash that same year. Her work experience pulled her in the direction of not only further addictions treatment work, but also in trauma work in addicted populations.

In 2005, she became a holistic studies practitioner, completed two graduate programs at the School of Vanati in Pittsburgh, and is presently involved in the extension graduate program.

Patti started working at Serenity Acres Treatment Center in January of 2013, as a licensed Certified Associate Counselor for Alcohol and Drugs (CAC-AD), and provides addictions counseling, family education, and holistic therapy services to her clients. She also runs her own business, Healing Branches, in Severna Park, Md. At Healing Branches, Patti practices Cellular Expansion and Healing Energy Medicine—a form of hands on bodywork that heals through the cells for optimal health and wellness.
