We are in control! We can alter our genetic make-up and other factors to contribute to breast cancer prevention. Here are 2 more of the top controllable risk factors:
Oh exercise. We love how we feel when we do it but sometimes it’s a pain in the butt to fit it into our days. My friend, Pamela Keld, was one of those women. Pamela was inspired to create Everywhere Exercise while she was sitting and wondering if she had time to exercise while watching her children run around in the playground.
As mothers and women we often find it hard to set aside time for ourselves every day. Pamela and her team of experts have created an easy tool to overcome this “life gets in the way” syndrome. Everywhere Exercise is a downloadable app that is liberating, empowering and easy to use anywhere, anytime. The exercises can be done when you are sitting at your computer (I’m doing one now!), while you are standing in line at the supermarket, when you are attending a meeting or traveling. You don’t need to carve out a time or find a special place to do EvEx which makes it extremely convenient!
An exercise program is imperative for any type of wellness program to work. Recent research shows the benefits of moving more during your day. Exercising four or more hours a week can decrease hormone levels and help lower your breast cancer risk. Exercise also promotes the flow of oxygen and the pulsation of our blood and lymph flow.
With Pamela’s convent program there is no more excuses! Whether you try er program, walk, run, jump rope, dance, lift weights, hike or swim- any type of movement is life-giving and in many cases life-saving! Movement calms the mind and makes our body smile.
Everywhere Exerercise is available on your iPhone, iPad, Kindle, Nook and Android. ( All your electronic needs!)
Our bodies are miraculous machines but sometimes they need some extra support. Studies have shown that taking vitamins and supplements can help reduce your risk of breast cancer. Each person is different though. To properly assess what vitamins and nutrients your specific body needs I recommend coming into Thermography for Health to get a LSA scan. The LSA scan measures electrical conductivity through important communication points on your hands. While doing this I can measure the level of toxic stress on your organs and systems and suggest supplements to support them.
(Stay tuned– I will be going into detail about this scan next week! )
These ‘controllable’ risk factors, exercise and supplements, readily translate into simple changes that we can all make in our day-to-day lives to help prevent or treat breast cancer.
