    Transcript for Inside promising new colon cancer treatments

    Now to that “Gma” health alert about colon cancer. It’s the second leading cause of cancer deaths in America and now it’s on the rise among young adults. We spoke with one young patient who beat it and the medical team that helped her. It was just about the last news I was expecting to hear. Reporter: At just 24 years old, Dana rye was diagnosed with colon cancer. She’s part of an unsettling trend. Young adults developing one of the deadliest forms of cancer. The first time symptoms appeared for me I was 17 years old in high school and experienced a little bit of rectal 3w4r50eding and said this is what webmd told me it could be and the doctor laughed in my face and said there was no possible way at my age it could be colon cancer. Reporter: Experts suggest adults get screened for colon cancer at 50 years old, 45 for African-Americans but according to a study by the American cancer society, colon cancer rates are rising in adults as young as their 20s and 30s with death rates for this group also increasing. And though the overall risks of colorectal cancers at this ages is still low millennials born in 1990 now face double the risk of colon cancer as a person born in 1950 did at the same age. In our patients with young onset colorectal cancer under 50 what we’re seeing they don’t have a family history or any known genetic predisposition. Reporter: This doctor is behind the first of its kind study at memorial sloan-kettering. If we can identify the patients that are at risk for getting this disease at such a young age we can diagnose them earlier. Their approach, combining research with clinical care to tackle the problem. We hope to provide a broader, more holistic approach of medical care to our patients. Reporter: After six months of grueling treatment, Dana is now 32 years old and eight years cancer-free. If there are changes in your body to know that — recognize them and make sure to investigate them. Yes, and Jen is nodding along about that knowing your body so what is behind this increase? You know, it’s not clear and we don’t know. There are some suggestions and a recent study that came out of sloan-kettering suggests a couple of factors. Increase in polyps. There is a definite delay in getting that patient a colonoscopy. Bleeding that then is attributed to hemorrhoids instead of colon cancer, the cost of a colonoscopy, can be difficult for insurance companies to cover it and all contributes to misdiagnosis so we have to be clear. It is still higher risk if you’re over the age of 50 but this age group, the rise is concerning. It is very concerning. So what about signs, symptom, prevention? This is where people need to pay attention. Even young people because this can be life saving so signs or symptoms. Number one, any type of I regular bleeding, any change in bowel habits. Weight loss unintentional, persistent cramps, gas or pain. If you notice those be persistent. This applies to the medical profession as well and think of this but you have to talk about prevention because that is really important. So when you talk about colorectal cancer, the things that are associated with lower your risk, diet, very important, not smoking, limiting alcohol and keeping your weight in a healthy range for some people, aspirin has been shown to lower the risk but not recommended for everyone across the board. Something you were adamant about discussing, lynch syndrome. I’ve never heard of it. You’re not along. Even some doctors don’t think of lynch syndrome. This is one of the most common heredity trance ss. 1 out of 300 people may be a carrier for this gene. What is. It has an associated increased risk of colorectal cancer and other cancers, endometrial cancer so it’s on my radar as a gynecologist but increased risk of stomach cancer, breast cancer sore for those genetic testing is important. Testing, that’s how you find it.

    Transcript for Learning resilience from Olympic athletes

    ??? Time for the “Weekend download.” We’ve all been so impressed with the mental toughness. The olympic athletes. I spoke with Bonnie St. John author of “My crow-resilience to find out how we can get some of that toughness in our own lives. Bonnie, good morning. Thanks for being with us. Thank you. We want to know how can we have the toughness of an olympian? How do we do that? Having a ritual for focus was always one of the things that gave me an edge. Lots come physically prepared but the pressure of high winds and delays we’ve seen in Korea, you have to have the mental toughness so whatever you’re doing whether an exam like you said or coaching or a presentation at work, take time out to separate yourself from the chatter, from the texts, from all the distraction, focus, visualize what it is you need to do. Everyone can learn to do that. I found that incredibly useful in my own life. Once you’re doing the things that you’re giving a presentation, what if you make a mistake how do you recover. That’s what happened to me. I fell in the slalom. I was ahead in the first run and in the second run there was this dangerous icy patch and I fell but I got up, got over the finish line quickly and still won the bronze medal I’m wearing. The woman would won, she also fell, but she got up faster. She won by being the quicker getter-upper. That’s a skill. Practice getting up even when you don’t think you’re doing well. Get up faster. Quicker getter-upper. It’s not over when it’s over. What about the postgame? How do you exhibit strength? It’s not natural to have charm and act like a champion after a disappointment. So we have to learn to discipline our emotions. Lindsey vonn was great in the giant slalom when she didn’t win. She came back and with a smile and said, I did my best. I made a mistake. Bonnie St. John, I appreciate it. Great points. All of them. %-Pif you wanttohearmuchmoreof my conversation with Bonnie check out the 10% happier podcast wherever you get your podcasts and right back with

    Transcript for Celebrity meditation guru shares simple guide to meditating live on ‘GMA’

    We are here with Bob Roth, the meditation teacher to the stars. He’s worked with Katy Perry, Michael J. Fox, Jersey seinfeld and Hugh Jackman just to name a few. The two of you. You do know your audience. You really got me excited. This was the greatest gift you gave me, George, when you introduced me to this man who has a new book, “Strength in stillness.” Please welcome Bob Roth. I mean that. I really do. You gave me a gift. I know, there was a time that something was really crazy going on in the studio and I was losing it and look at George. He was so calm and I said I want some of that and he said, it’s you. And talk about meditation and how the analogy to an ocean. Well, first of all it’s not me, it’s the technique. The technique is what works but I appreciate that. I like to use when I describe transcendental meditation, I like to use the analogy of an ocean. We know an ocean can be very turbulent on the surface but by its nature an ocean is very silent and calm at its depth and the mind is the same. The surface of our mind is that active gotta, gotta monkey mind, all the millions of things we have to do and every one of us has a desire to have some inner calm we like to have upper equanimity, equilibrium. Is there such a thing as an inner and if so how did we get there and transcendental meditation is a simple, natural technique that gives effortless access to the stillness that lies within. You keep using the word technique. It captures your voice and the way you approach people and I think a lot of people may be watching at home and think, oh, transcendental meditation, that sounds like a religion. I’m never going to be able to quiet my mind down but it’s a technique. How did you feel? That’s what I was like when you came to me. I’m not sure this is going to work for me. I don’t want all this metaphysical Cal stuff but would love to learn how to find some peace, some calm. I am by nature a very skeptical person. I don’t — I love science. I love practicality so in that way you would think I’m not your typical meditation teacher but I think that whole understanding of typical meditation teacher needs to be brushed aside. We’re talking in transcendental meditation a medical tool that can just give anyone access whether they believe in it or not you can be 100% skeptical and anyone can learn it. How to allow the active thinking mind to just access calm and when that happens, your body according to research gains a profound state of rest. You say it’s what the mind wants. Yes. The nature of the mind, that’s the interesting thing. There are many meditations that I think many think of, oh, I could never do it. I could never clear my mind of thoughts. When I heard that, someone said clear your mind, I said, all right, I’ll create peace in the Middle East. But in transcendental meditation, we just effortlessly access these deeper quieter calmer levels that are already there and it happens effortlessly because the nature of the mind is to be drawn to something more satisfying and inside most satisfying. Also like to have no expectations and everything in life, we have expectations and intentions but when we meditate it’s just the opposite but one thing people are concerned about, time. The time, the amount of time. Does it have to be the 20 minutes. I told this story, a man came into the office with his 14-year-old son and he was complaining, said, I want to do this but 20 minutes twice a day, once in the morning, once in the afternoon, who has the time? And his son who must have done the math said, dad, there’s 1,440 minutes in a day. You don’t have 40 minutes to take care of yourself? So kind of shut him up and learned to meditate. You like it. You look forward to it. It’s not hard work. I think it creates time. I think if you invest in 40 minutes a day you go through the rest of the 22 hours, whatever, 23 hours feeling more calm, more focused, more connected to everyone around you and that’s invaluable. It’s who we are when we’re not stressed. Stress is just — sticks to us so you do this first thing in the morning, you get up 20 minutes earlier and people say, are you kidding? I need my sleep. You said that to me and I thought you were nuts. It’s deeper than sleep. Do it first thing in the morning. It’s an investment. More resilient. Have more energy, more focus, you get things done faster, more efficiently and you’re enjoying it. It caughts you and energized you at the same time. It’s the oddest thing. Give us a quick little quiet time. So as I said, to learn transcendental meditation it’s taught in personal instruction I wanted to say. One-to-one. I don’t have the time to do that here but the first thing that you have to do when you meditate is you close your eyes. There are many meditation techniques that tell you to push out thoughts, this isn’t. So it’s just a simple thing. Close your eyes for a moment. Everybody, do that. Do that. And then just know when you learn this technique we will give you a mantra which is a word and sound and teach you how to access the deepest level of your own being and when you do that, your body gains profound rest and you come out energized so you can open your eyes now but just know that the simplicity of closing your eyes then you learn this technique from a teacher and it can transform your life. That is true. Bob, thanks for coming in. Offering for our crew to do this for us and we’re so grateful. Bring it home with you because “Strength in stillness” is out now and we’ll be right back.
