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.

Tony Samara, Shaman, Interview Available.

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Tony Samara

Tony Samara, author of ‘Shaman’s Wisdom,’ ‘The Simplicity of Love Meditation,’ ‘Different Yet the Same,’ ‘Karma, Mantra and Beyond’ and ‘Discover Your Inner Buddha’ was born in England, grew up in Egypt, England, and also in Norway where he discovered the “Zen Buddhist philosophy”.

This discovery eventually led him to the Mount Baldy Zen Center in California, USA, where he learned the spiritual teachings of Kyozan Joshu Sasaki, Roshi. He had curiosity to explore further the essence of spirituality and thus went to live and learn with shamanic communities around the globe. By going on pilgrimage to various sacred sites in India, Tony was able to dwell deeply upon the ancient Vedic and Jain philosophies and work profoundly with the essence of these teachings.

Now people from all over the world visit Tony Samara to take spiritual guidance and experience being in his presence.

Tony Samara believes that “the vast majority of people go through life without directly experiencing the depths of their true self, or understanding their connection to life, or their relationship to others and to the world at large. We are often taught to only relate to the world through our senses. We think, we reason, we feel – but we do not know from our hearts what it means to be connected to what is beyond the senses.”

He recognizes that direct experiences have the potential to radically transform an individual and his or her life, as well as promote a profound and effortless letting go of past emotional, mental and physical pain and suffering.

His main countries of activity are in Europe, yet with the assistance of the Internet he is attracting a Global audience through frequent online interviews and live satsangs. His function is as a Spiritual Master who encourages all to lead their lives actively in a noble way in order to realize the evolution of human consciousness.

Verbal dialogue is not the essence of his teachings, but he explains in a direct and simple way that everyone can understand how each individual can practically integrate greater acceptance, peace and joy into their daily lives.

Tony Samara teaches with humour, humility and with infinite patience, empowering the individual with courage, trust and inner strength to continue on this journey back into wholeness, a path that leads towards real freedom.

“Conscious evolution is ultimate freedom. Overcoming the fear of what lies ahead, by illuminating the spiritual dimension within our nature, is awakening to the splendour of our hearts.

It is said that the mind clarifies matters and reveals truth, but, in fact, it creates confusion for the heart. True reality dwells in its natural center — the heart: the heart is the path to self-realization.

The totally natural state of joy and wisdom experienced as the heart opens to the truth, is the remarkable state of being, free for all to experience.”

Tony Samara is a mirror of what is possible, a shining reminder of the continuous possibility of being human. More information available at: http://www.TonySamara.com

Working in conjunction with physicians and healthcare practitioners, Dr. Kaye has built a successful practice in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Her clients include well-known personalities, professional athletes, business executives, senior citizens, families, and even adolescents and young children. In the early 1980s, Dr. Kaye received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology and health psychology, and proceeded to develop and administer a holistic center for senior citizens. Part of her dissertation was reprinted in the Clinical Journal of Gerontology, and since then, she has taught yoga at several universities.
Dr. Kaye integrated pain management and healing into her practice in the early 1990s, working alongside physicians in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. She lectured on the Healing Touch to first-year medical students at UCLA School of Medicine in the late 1990s.

Her comprehensive approach to each case produces dramatic changes in an individual’s mobility, strength, flexibility, and overall health. She has also attended clients in the cancer unit at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, and travels extensively to visit her clients, who are located around the U.S.
Dr. Kaye first realized her ability as a healer in her teens. She believes she inherited this ability from her Great Aunt Katie, who was also a healer. Before pursuing healing and pain management as a profession, Dr. Kaye extensively studied yoga, conducting groundbreaking research in the 1970s on yoga as a treatment for substance abuse. She also produced a respected San Diego-area cable TV show exploring yoga as a treatment modality for common complaints such as depression, anxiety, stress, overeating and physical inflexibility.

Can Mindfulness-based Meditation Help Teens with Cancer?

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

logo1267406_mdA new study presented at the American Psychosomatic Meeting in San Francisco this month concluded that mindfulness-based meditation could lessen some symptoms associated with cancer for teenagers. Researchers asked  13 teenagers with cancer to complete questionaires covering mood (positive and negative emotions, anxiety and depression), sleep and quality of life. The group was divided into two  and one group the research group was given eight mindfulness-based meditation sessions asnd the other group of five were put on a wait ;ist. The eight sessions were 90 minutes long and took place weekly. After the eight week session both groups filled out the same questionaire a second time . Researchers said “We analyzed differences in mood, sleep and quality of life scores for each participant and then between each group to evaluate if mindfulness sessions had a greater impact than the passage of time only. Findings showed that teens participating in the mindfulness sessions had lower scores on depression after 8 weeks and girls from this group reported sleeping better. Researchers also found that girls developed mindfulness skills better than boys. Researchers concluded that “Our results suggest that mindfulness sessions could be helpful in improving mood and sleep in teenagers with cancer, as previous oncology research suggests with adults.” However, results were not large enough to make definitive conclusions.

Can sleep problems Increase the Risk of Prostate Cancer?

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

logo1267406_mdNew research published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention concluded that men who reported sleep problems, including difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. had up to a twofold increase risk of prostate cancer than a control group of sleepers. Researchers followed over 2,100 men from a cohort of over 2400 men aged 67 to 96. When enrolled in the study men answered four questions about sleep disturbance: whether or not they took medications to sleep, if they had trouble falling asleep, if they woke up during the night and had difficulty going back to sleep, or wether they woke up early in the morning and had difficulty going back to sleep. Among the subjects 8.7% and 5.7% reported severe or very severe sleep problems with sleeping respectively and although none had prostate cancer at the start of the study 6.4% were diagnosed with prostate cancer over the next five years.

After adjusting for age, researchers found the risk for prostate cancer increased proportionally with reported severity of problems falling and staying asleep from 1.6 fold to 2.1 fold over those who had no sleep problems. In addition, the association was stronger for advanced prostate cancer than for overall prostate cancer with more than a 3 fold increase in risk for advanced prostate cancer associated with “very severe” sleep problems. Researchers said findings should be confirmed with a larger cohort with a longer observational period.

Can Sleep Deprivation Increase Risk of Aggressive Breast Cancer?

Friday, September 7th, 2012

A new study published in  Breast Cancer Research and Treatment concluded that lack of sleep is linked to more aggressive breast cancer and the likelihood of recurrence.  Four hundred twelve post-menopausal breast cancer patients were recruited at diagnosis and asked about the average sleep duration over the past two years. Their likelihood of recurrence was measured by the Oncotype Dx test that assigns a tumor recurrence score for the individual based upon the expression level of a combination of 21 genes. Results showed that women who reported six hours or less sleep each night on average before breast cancer diagnosis had higher Oncotype tumor recurrence scores. The researchers said “This is the first study to suggest that women who routinely sleep fewer hours may develop more aggressive breast cancer compared to women who sleep longer hours.” “We found a strong correlation between fewer hours of sleep per night and worse recurrence scores, specifically in post-menopausal breast cancer patients. This suggests that lack of sufficient sleep may cause more aggressive tumors, but more research will need to be done to verify this finding and understand the cause of the association.”

Risk Factor for Colon Cancer Includes Lack of Sleep

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

logo1267406_md

Recent research published in the journal, Cancer, concluded that individuals who average less than six hours of sleep a night have a 50 percent greater probability of colorectal adenomas, precursors to cancer, than those who slept seven or more hours nightly. The researchers believe this is the first study to report on sleep duration and colorectal adenomas.

Telephone interviews were conducted with patients scheduled for colonoscopies. Demographic data and responses to questions on the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index were obtained. The Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index asks questions about trouble sleeping, hours of sleep a night and others to determine the overall quality of sleep.

Three hundred thirty eight of the 1,240 patients interviewed were diagnoses with colorectal adenomas during their colonscopies. This group reported sleeping less than six hours compared to those without adenomas and this association remained even after adjusting for family history, smoking, and obesity using a waist to hip ratio.
