Your Mess Becomes Your Message: My Interview with Dr Leigh Erin Connealy

Today’s post is a new interview with Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy MD of Cancer Center for Hope in Irvine, California.

Cancer Center for Hope (formerly Oasis of Hope California) is one of the few clinics in the U.S. that offers advanced integrative medical therapies like vitamin C IVs, hyperbaric oxygen, ozone therapy, PEMF, GCMAF, etc. in addition to conventional treatments. (And takes insurance!)

Dr. Connealy and I were both speakers at the Cure to Cancer Conference in San Diego this spring, and it was there that I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with her at length about her approach to cancer treatment.

She’s a passionate straight-shooting doctor with a vast array of expertise on anti-cancer nutrition and integrative medicine.

Disclaimer: This interview is for educational purposes only, to make you aware of the many options that exist outside of the conventional medical box. I was not compensated for it.


In part 2 we discuss:
-How her approach to cancer differs from standard conventional medicine.
-What happens when patients choose nutrition and integrative medicine first.
-How patients are changing the industry
-The importance of a holistic approach to health and healing.


In part 3, we discuss the key differences between cancer patients that do well and heal, and those that don’t.


In part 4 we discuss why doctors ignore and even attempt to refute evidence-based nutritional science.


If you liked our interview, you might enjoy Dr. Connealy’s book, Be Perfectly Healthy.

I also highly recommend the Cure to Cancer Conference video set, which features 20 talks from Dr. Connealy, Dr. Contreras, Dr. Thomas Lodi, Dr. V, Bill Henderson, Ty Bollinger, Doug Kaufman, Burton Goldberg, myself and many more.

    Hi Chris,

    first I want to thank you for all your work and all your passion. I’m from Germany and did a lot of research concerning cancer and the possible alternative treatments. And unfortunately I must say it’s pretty difficult to find comparable german informations on the internet.

    What is quite strange regarding the fact that a lot of alternative healing strategies are common in Germany. To make a long story short, the lack of competent (and positive!) information in german brought me to your great blog.

    I always recommend reading it and I do really appreciate your relaxed way of presenting possible alternative healing protocols or different doctors and their different ways. Like you said yourself before, information can get really overwhelming when you step outside the box first. People need to find their own ways. You are undogmatic but helpful!

    Take care and greetings from europe!

    Hi Chris,
    I am a nsclc adreno stage 4 patient. Recently I have started to see Dr Conneally. She is truly what she said she is. Lots of common sense & compassionate.
    She is not that old but very wise. She also has a good nurse practitioner, Ann Lee. I will highly recommend Dr Conneally. Thank you Chris for all updated info.

    I read and listened to your blog. I started off with great hope eating. Healthy, avoiding meat, etc but every test came back worse. It was like every thing I did failed.
    Every test came back worse. Smoothies, juices, raw food made no difference.
    Every pet scan, MRI , ct scan said it was spreading. It was the opposite of what I read and heard!
    I am still here but the pain is horrible! all I can say is that I am still here?

      Very sad! ((( I wonder what’s Chris opinion on that? Sending prayers your way!! I’ve recently read many good reviews on IP6 & Inositol supplement (on Amazon). People claimed they had chemo and no side effects! Best of luck!!
