If you watch Chris Wark’s interview with Dr Leigh Erin Connealy, you may notice a stand-out point that deserves a mention. Dr Connealy makes it very clear that after a cancer diagnosis, her patients who focus on nutrition and integrative medicine first, have significantly better outcomes than patients who come to her after treatment that may involve radiation or chemotherapy!
This makes perfect sense because, as we know, the immune system is vital for effective healing and indeed a failing immune system can be the cause of illness and disease; “Their bodies have been compromised” as Dr Connealy says – “and it’s your body that will heal you.”
Also, there is second clear and vital message – preventive medicine, indeed preventive health means strengthening the systems in your body, that on its own does a very good job keeping away illness and keeping you healthy. The three main systems of the body are; the immune system, the nervous system and the endocrine system – and by eating a lot of nutritious food, exercising often, avoiding toxins and reducing stress in your life, it will be easier for them to look after you.
