For Americans, the word “cancer”
is thrown at us all the time. Some may
find a sense of negativity and fear being
served to us about breast cancer every
year, especially in October. Isn’t it time
we focus on prevention rather than
awareness? We must educate ourselves
on earlier detection and looking at some
preventable strategies and root causes.
What are some of the causes?
Family history is one of the most
significant, however, a healthy lifestyle
can most likely change the outcome.
Other risks include estrogen use (birth
control pills, IUD’s, fertility treatments,
hormone replacement therapy).High                                                                           levels of estrogen
that occur naturally in the body should
be discussed with your doctor – and
how to reduce them. Other factors can
relate to your menstrual cycle (periods
starting before 12 or finishing after 50),
never having children and lifestyle
additives (smoking, high alcohol use,
high sugar and fatty diets).

How can we reduce risks?
Many things in a healthy breast
protocol can reduce risk and promote
better breast health including keeping
your body alkaline and reducing acidity and inflammation. The four biggest
factors are sugar, soda, alcohol and a
heavycarbohydrate diet. Dry brushing/
lymphatic work on moving stagnant
fluid, essential oils and detoxification                                                                              can also help. Thermography screenings                                                                      can visualize most all of these
issues as well.
