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. She is the founder and medical director of the Center for New Medicine and the Cancer Center for Healing in Irvine, California. One of the foremost integrative medical doctors in the country, she has been treating patients for nearly thirty years.

Are people who feel gratitude more satisfied in life?

Friday, April 11th, 2014

logo1267406_mdA new study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences concluded that people who are materialistic tend to be depressed and unsatisfied, in part because they find it harder to be grateful for what they have. They say materialism tends to be “me-centered” and focuses upon what one does not have and impairs the ability to be grateful for what one does have. On the other hand, gratitude is a positive mood and about helping others. Most often people are motivated to help others who help them and to help others as well and is good for our health.

According to the authors amassing more and more possessions do not make us happier, it raises our reference point so we want more and more but without gaining happiness.

For the study 246 members of the department of marketing in a mid sized private university with an average age of 21 were given a 15 minute survey consisting of .a 15-item scale of materialism. Researchers said those who are materialistic are more likely to succeed materialistically but are more likely to be unhappy and less satisfied with their lives and have lower self esteem. They are also less likely to be satisfied with relationships and less likely to be involved in community events.
