Emerging science points to a different way of thinking about chronic illness, including cancer. Rather than divide the body into organs, functional medicine views disease as a systemic problem, in which the approach is to treat the system, not the symptom. Join me as I speak with Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, MD, as we discuss why cancer rates are at an all-time high, the importance of early detection, alternative screening options, and what an integrative treatment approach truly entails.


What you'll learn from this episode:

  • How Dr. Connealy's approach to cancer differs from standard conventional medicine
  • Safer alternatives to conventional screenings like mammography
  • What happens when patients choose nutrition and integrative medicine first
  • The importance of a holistic approach to health and healing
  • The connection between high phthalates & chemo resistance
  • & So much more!
