Happy day to all of you lovely people out in the world! I hope you are enjoying this amazing weather…. my absolute favorite time of the year!
I am so excited to share this information with you this week, because I think that it will be so impactful for you and the way you view your health!
I want to share something with you that I know impacts every one of your lives out there. I know that you know at least one person in your life, who has been impacted by Breast Cancer in some way. I know several people who have lived with it, beat it, and sometimes have died with it. I believe that it’s one of those things that is on everyone’s mind. And what I would like to believe, is that we have some kind of impact on our physical, emotional and spiritual selves that can empower us to feel like we can create our own destinies.
Here in America, our health care system highlights the importance of breast health during the month of October. While I appreciate the information being offered to the public and knowing that it’s given with the best of intentions, I find a couple of very important tips missing from the common dissemination of information. Traditional, western medicine does not teach that there is much one can do to maintain healthy breast tissue. Whether this is an oversight or lack of information, I feel that it’s really important that we are all armed with knowledge and information to take charge of our own health.
Most of the information I see out in the mainstream media and at doctor’s offices is focused on what you do, once a lump has been found. For example: Breast Self-Exam, getting a regular Mammogram, having your doctor check you regularly. This is all great, but, the challenge with this, is that the growth has already started. I wouldn’t call this ‘prevention’ but rather, ‘detection’. In the traditional medical model, once something is found, there are attempts made to remove the offending lump/mass. I feel that this is a ‘victim’ mentality, with women feeling helpless and just sort of ‘waiting around’ to see if they are ‘one of the ones’.
I would like to present you with some regular self-care choices that can empower you (and, if you are a man, you can share these with the special women in your lives). And to be quite honest, the rate of Breast Cancer in men is also on the rise. It is most common among men who are 60 – 70 years of age. About one percent of all breast cancers occur in men, with about 2,000 men diagnosed with breast cancer annually.
I’ve read several different theories on the origination of cancer in the breast tissue.
In a nutshell, the best way to keep the breast healthy is:
Of course, that’s an oversimplification of the process, but that gives you the ‘big idea’. We all have cancer cells floating around in our body. Whether they are expressed or not has quite a bit to do with our lifestyle and what we are exposed to on a regular basis.
I have a short list here of action items for you to proactively support breast health:
I support you in being pro-active with your health. We do have tools available to us that can support our health and well-being. I hope this very long (but hopefully informative) post is something that you will use. PLEASE, please share this post with people!! I really want this information out to everyone.
With blessings for continued health and vitality to you and your families,
