WEEK IV: Systems Approach to Cancer: Advanced Testing for Early Detection with Leigh Erin Connealy, MD
ABOUT WEEK IV LECTURE:
When it comes to cancer, conventional doctors are trained to treat their patients exclusively with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Dr. Connealy has developed a whole-person approach to treating cancer- In this lecture, Dr. Connealy will review the latest in cancer screening and technologies. She will focus on treating the whole patient to look for the root cause of their cancer, including genetic, physiological, environmental, nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual factors. She will go into the fact that chemotherapy and radiation have their place in treatment, but in many cases, they are simply not enough, because cancer isn’t caused by one thing, but by many different factors. The critical path begins with the practitioner directing the proper screening and tests before beginning treatment. She will review SOT (Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique) which is a treatment that can both detect and prevent cancer in early stages of progression. She will discuss a cancer treatment that protects a normal healthy cell, boosts the immune system, blocking the angiogenic process that supports cancer growth and minimizes cancer-induced cachexia.

 
 
WEEK VI: Systems Approach to Hormones in a Chronically Ill Patient with Leigh Erin Connealy, MD
ABOUT WEEK VI LECTURE:
The purpose of this presentation is to educate medical professionals about the importance of hormone balance in chronically ill patients. Many factors contribute to the dis-ease of the body and hormone imbalances can play a major role in those factors. Hormones, which are produced in the thyroid, adrenal, or pituitary glands, serve as the chemical messengers in the body. The role of these messengers is to bridge a form of communication between various organs in the body and to serve as a catalyst for many internal metabolic cascade reactions. Many endocrine disorders are the result of hormone imbalance. Diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, thyroid cancer, and diabetes are the result of such imbalances. As medical advancements have progressed throughout the years, there has been a peaking interest in treatments such bio-identical hormone therapy. Bio-identical hormone therapy is a form of treatment that uses naturally synthesized hormones to treat patients with hormone imbalances. Join Dr. Connealy as she discusses the importance of addressing hormone imbalances.
