October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  You know at least one lady that has been affected by it.  I know several–too many. 

While large amounts of money are being raised and spent on curing cancer, why not do all you can to avoid it in the first place? 

Someone I know very well has been recently diagnosed with cancer, and it has been very hard on the entire family.  Decisions that others never consider are theirs to make daily. 

Over a decade ago, someone else I knew well was diagnosed with breast cancer, and it was very difficult to her loved ones.  Some of them lived far away and were not able to be there for her as much as they wanted to do so.  The pain from chemo was overwhelming.  The financial part of the chemo was astronomical.  Surgery, reconstructive surgery, hair loss, and a wig became reality for her. 

When a lady is diagnosed with breast cancer, her world can very easily be turned upside down. 

Here are a few ways that you can reduce your breast cancer risk.

1. Lower your stress levels.

This may be not be easy to do, yet it is worth it.  Stress depletes nutrition from your body; in addition it shrinks a gland that is vital for your body’s immune system’s functioning.

2.  Give your body adequate nutrition. 

Nutrients give your body the tools to do what it needs to do.  When your body does not have those tools, it cannot do the jobs that need to be done. 

You wan to eat plenty of garlic and green vegetables.

3.  Exercise

I will admit that exercise was a very low priority for me in the past, yet I am prioritizing it much more now.  First, exercise can help you de-stress.  Next, when you perspire during exercise, your body is detoxing.

4.  Use deodorant without harsh aluminum salts.

As I mentioned above, detoxing your body is vital.  Aluminum salts in your deodorant stop the perspiration process in your body and cause the toxins to accumulate in a very delicate area. 

Our bodies were made to perspire for a reason.  It’s imperative to allow them to do so. 

5.  Replace junk food with whole foods.

Junk lowers your immune system because it is full of sugar and other chemicals.  Most of fast food is very harmful for your body as well.   Instead, eat many vegetables and some fruit, preferably low glycemic fruit. 

You have heard “You are what you eat,” and it is true.  While junk food destroys your body, healthy food helps your immune system and helps you to feel so much better.

Taking care of your body is not vain; it’s being a good steward.  If you want to take better care of your body, let’s talk.  As I mentioned before, I have seen the terrible effects of neglecting nutrition, rest, and exercise in my early 20’s.  The first step to take better care of your body is a simple 9-day total body re-set.  I have done this personally numerous times and have clients who have received excellent results as well.  Go here to email me now, and I’ll reply within 24 hours to schedule a time for us to chat on the phone or Zoom.  Don’t put off your health a day longer!
