If you currently have breast cancer or want to prevent it, adopt these rather easy life styles changes. It really is so simple to take care of the body once you understand how it works. Look for further posts exploring in more depth each of these eleven keys. Or simply order the book at the bottom of the page…..
1.) Spend at least an hour a week in the Sauna to eliminate environmental chemicals and toxic heavy metals stored in your fat cells.
2.) Exercise at least 40 minutes a day or 4 hours/week.
3.) Sleep in a dark room with no light from the street coming into your bedroom. (wear an eye mask at night if your blinds are not that helpful). Use a night light in the wash room. Goal is to keep melatonin levels high so avoid turning on a bright light in the middle of the night.
4.) Use non-toxic cleaning products. Isn’t this a no brainer by now people? Avoid chlorine in products. Chlorine plus cabon acts like an estrogen in your body.
5.)Avoid cosmetics, tooth paste, nail polish, shampoo etc that contain parabens or phthalates. Both of these chemicals act like estrogen.
6.)Drink water and keep any leftover food stored in the fridge in glass, ceramic or stainless steel rather than plastic. Plastic leaches bisphenol A or phthalates, which both act like the hormone estrogen.
7.) Eat primarily vegetarian. Another no brainer:) If you do eat meat, eat clean, organic stuff and RARELY.
8.)Add 2 tsp. of freshly ground flax seeds daily. Eat them within 15 minutes of grinding. Put in smoothies, juices, oatmeal..etc. But eat them!
9.)Eat 2 tsp of turmeric daily or take 1000 mg of curcumin in capsule daily.
10.)Spend 15 minutes exposing your arms and legs to sunlight every day. or take 2000-5000 IU of vitamin D# daily. Monitor vitamin D levels in blood.
11.) Reduce or limit alcohol to no more than 2 alcoholic beverages per week.
