Dr. Connealy attended the University of Texas School of Public Health, and then attended the University of Health Sciences Chicago Medical School. She completed her post-graduate training at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.
Dr. Connealy soon realized that conventional medicine had very limited returns and did not always improve the health of her patients. Her patients were hungry for alternative approaches for improving their health. This led her to study integrative and complementary therapies, and since then she has revolutionized the landscape of medicine. Dr. Connealy feels that we must treat the patient with the disease and not the disease of the patient. She has discovered that many factors contribute to the disease process; therefore, many modalities must be used to reverse it.
Dr. Connealy treats the WHOLE person, and is open to all potential treatment possibilities. She has over twenty years of experience in finding the ‘root cause of an illness’, and has taken numerous advanced courses, including homeopathic, nutritional and lifestyle approaches, while studying disease, chronic illness, and cancer treatments. She has a true passion to change her patients’ lives, and give them their life back.
Dr. Connealy began practicing medicine in 1986. In 1992, she founded the Center for New Medicine in Irvine, California, where she serves as Medical Director. Her practice is firmly based in the belief that strictly treating the health problems with medications does not find the root cause of the illness.
The Center offers a vast array of services for men, women and children, including detoxification, holistic dentistry, nutrition, fitness and weight loss, cosmetic/laser treatment, pain management, allergy therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, sleep disorders, and much more. We also provide specialized services in gynecology, natural fertility, menopause, hormone imbalances for all ages, healthy sexuality, healthy aging, and personalized preventive medicine. Some of the chronic conditions treated at the clinic include cancer, heart disease, diabetes, neurological and auto-immune disorders.
Dr. Connealy writes and has been published in monthly health columns for “Coast” and “OC Health”, Orange County based magazines and is published in “The Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association” (JANA), along with Healthy Aging Magazine. She is a frequent writer for Natural News. She is also a weekly co-host on Frank Jordan’s national radio show “Healthy, Wealthy and Wise” on Sirius/XM Channel 131 digital cable, KSPA 1510 AM, and WAVA 780. Dr. Connealy is a frequent guest speaker at professional organizations and on local cable television shows when highlighting health topics like KTBN or Know the Cause with Doug Kaufman airing across the country periodically. She has a weekly publication newsletter with Newport Natural Health and Eagle Publishing.
