Dr Carlos Garcia/Utopia Wellness Cancer Treatment

Sunday, 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.

        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.

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.

Inflammation-Dr David Seaman and Cellular Expansion-Patti McNulty

Sunday, 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.

Food/Antibiotics May Cause IBS

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

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

A recent review of research published in the American Journal of Physiology–Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, suggested that changes in the microorganisms in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may be the cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This condition is common in up to 20 percent of the middle aged people in North America who suffer from abdominal pain, gas, diarrhea, or constipation or both. In the past it was thought to be caused by emotional stress, environmental factors, and genetics. Based upon their review of research they found: 1)diet can change the makeup of bacteria in the GI tract that may contribute to symptoms of IBS;  2) antibiotic use, which disturbs microbiota in the gut is associated with IBS; 3) changes in the gut microbiota  influences the ability of the GI tract to contract to move waste through the system; and 4) changes in the gut microbes can impair communication networks between the immune, nervous and endocrine systems, predisposing people to IBS.  They also found that emotional stress may change the shape and function of microrganisms in the GI tract. Authors were optimistic that their findings would help facilitate treatments for IBS.

Can physical training and social support reduce fraility and malnutrition?

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

A new study reported in Science Digest concluded that a training program for the reactivation of older and frail people that included physical training and addressing nutritional-relevant aspects with the aid of non-professional volunteers at home has had positive effects on the physical condition and especially the social aspects of elderly frail people.

Previous studies showed that 11% of the over age 65 in Austria are frail, and 41% are pre-frail. Frailty was defined as reduced muscle mass and/or muscle power, malnutrition (undernourished or overeating), and chronic inflammation that is associated with health problems. .   In this study volunteers visited frail or malnourished people (average age 83 years) in their homes twice a week for a period of 12 weeks. The skilled volunteers trained together with the frail people (strength training with a Thera ribbon) and discussed nutrition related aspects. An active control group also received visits, but without nutrition or exercise training. After 12 weeks recorded results showed a significant improvement in the frail status and malnutrition frail group in which impaired nutrition was reduced by 25% and frailty was reduced by 17%. Interestingly, the control group who received social support only showed improvement with 23% less impaired nutrition and 16% less frailty. Researchers mad two major conclusions: that an active social life and social contacts are important for people to remain autonomous for as long as possible, and trained nonprofessional volunteers achieve similar good results with such a program as those conducted by professionals.
