True Prevention for Breast Cancer

October is Breast Awareness Month.  Before I give my opinions, I want to make sure you know I am not a doctor.  All these opinions are my own so take them with a grain of salt.  I appreciate the medical profession and how many women's lives have been saved through treatment.

My mom had a video several years ago of five prominent oncologists who said the key to cancer is prevention.  Cancer is usually in the body ten to twelve years before it manifests itself.  Treatment is still dicey because a lot of the treatments used to fight cancer, cause cancer.

Dr. Marshall believes mammograms will be outlawed in five years.  He thinks ultrasounds should be used to detect breast cancer instead.  Smashing a breast and radiating it just doesn't seem healthy to me.  He also believes women should never use under wire bras because it prevents drainage of the lymphatic system.  He encourages women to take out the under wire if it is made of metal.  Find ones that are made of plastic. 

Deodorant also needs to be taken into consideration.  Most deodorants are made of pure chemicals and you put it right over all your lymph nodes and breast tissue.  The deodorant I use is completely chemical free and keeps you from ever smelling.  It's fabulous!

There are a lot of things you can do to prevent breast cancer ~ 

Eat food that is organic or at least, know the food that has the most chemicals in them and avoid them.

Drink as pure of water as you are able to afford.  We use reverse osmosis.

Clean with natural cleaners {vinegar, baking soda, etc.}

Avoid taking drugs.  They have chemicals with many side effects.

Stop using hand sanitizers and sunscreens.  {Wear hats instead and stay out of the noontime sun.}

Even if you avoided chemicals completely in your life, you still may get cancer because we live in a toxic environment but, at least, you have a much less chance of getting it.  Even the cancer society says to eat nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day. {I would add that most of these need to be raw since they are the ones that actually fight cancer with all their enzymes and health components.} Finally, always work on building a healthy immune system since our immune system is what fights off disease the best!

After saying all this, I want to remind you that ~

This is the day that the Lord hath made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Psalm 118:24

Don't live your life frightened about anything.  Just do the best you can and leave the rest in God's hands.  We are just strangers and pilgrims passing through!  This isn't our home.  But stay informed and educated.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge
Hosea 4:6

Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves
Matthew 10:16
