Cancer effects almost everybody as some point in their life, either directly or indirectly. There is a good chance that you, the person reading this, know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, or at the least know someone who has had a close family member or friend pass away from cancer.
Treatment for cancer is generally a long, difficult process involving surgery, chemotherapy, stem cell transplants and/or hormone therapy. These types of treatments also usually come with a variety of unpleasant side effects that can alter the state of healthy tissue and organs.
Prevention is the Answer
Although treatment for later stages of cancer is generally considered to be very difficult, according to Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, MD, preventing these cancers from developing and treating them early on is easier than most people would expect.
“From one cancer cell to the tumor is 10 years. People can prevent cancer and this is what I tell people. Prevention is priceless. Because it’s very easy to treat early cancers,” Connealy said. “It’s a lot more work to treat stage four cancers.”
In order to be able to prevent cancer and catch it during it’s beginning stages, Connealy has compiled a variety of methods for detecting cancer in the body as early as possible.
The CRP test is a blood test that measures the amount of C-reactive protein in your blood. C-reactive protein is an indicator of inflammation, which itself can be an indicator of cancer. However, since inflammation isn’t a definitive indication of cancer, Connealy often has patients take fish oil supplements to see if the inflammation is due to a nutrition deficiency in their diet.
“So when I have a patient that has high C-Reactive Protein, I say ‘Let’s take some fish oils and see if we can get it down’,” Connealy said. “I’ll go, ‘Okay… I’m going to give you two months, and we will repeat it’ so if it doesn’t go down then I usually go looking for cancer.”
The Cancer Profile test is a blood and urine test that evaluates hormone, enzyme, organ and immune system activity to determine if you have cancer or not, and is said to be between 93% and 95% accurate. This is specifically what the Cancer Profile measures:
- Human chorionic gonadotropin levels
- Phosphohexose Isomerase levels
- Liver function
- Thyroid health
- DHEA-sulfate levels
- Carcinoembryonic antigen levels
High human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels are often associated with pregnancy, however false positives of hCG can also signal the presence of certain types of cancers.
“If you’ve been pregnant you know about HCG because that’s the hormone of pregnancy. It also is the hormone of malignancy,” Connealy said. “The Cancer Profile detects two different blood markers of HCG and one in the urine.”
The enzyme Phosphohexose Isomerase (PHI) is an enzyme that regulates anaerobic metabolism, and it is also one of the main cellular causes of malignancy. It assists the spread of cancer by creating an environment that cancer cells can thrive in.
“PHI is an enzyme involved in anaerobic (activity)—anaerobic means no oxygen; without oxygen,” Connealy said. “If that activity of that enzyme is elevated you have a cancer environment.”
Making sure the liver is functioning properly is also important for detecting cancer, as the liver is the “organ of detoxification”, meaning that any toxins ingested into your body pass through the liver. The test also checks thyroid health as an under active thyroid indicates a higher risk of cancer.

The test checks for levels of DHEA-sulfate, a hormone that is produced by the adrenal gland, and Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), a protein that is normally found in the tissue of a developing fetus.
“If you don’t have good adrenal gland function you can’t handle the stress of whatever stress it is,” Connealy said. “And it also checks CEA, which is a non-specific marker for mini-cancers.”
The ONCOblot test is a highly sensitive, non-invasive blood test for cancer. It works by detecting the levels of a specific type of protein that is produced by cancer cells.
“All malignant cancer cells make a protein called ENOX2 protein,” Connealy said. “So that determines if you have that and where it is.”
Although this form of testing is very accurate, it is only available during the relatively later stages of cancer development.
“Unfortunately, the only downside about that is it probably gets it at year six. I want to get it in year one or two or three,” Connealy said.
This method uses acupressure points to measure the function/health of the tissues and organs associated with those points. It was developed by Dr. Reinhold Voll, a famous physician, and the information he used was computerized into Biomeridian and Vega machines.
“These machines will determine early on if cancer is brewing, simmering, or fermenting – whatever word you want to use – in your body,” Connealy said.
The particularly beneficial property of this method is that it detects levels of cancer early on enough so that patients can make natural lifestyle changes that can prevent it from fully developing.
“You can reverse that and turn it around by the proper nutrition, the proper (what) I call ‘foundational products’,” Connealy said. “and there’s targeted products that you can use to help rid your body of cancer.”
