Starve breast cancer today.
It’s that time again when everything turns to PINK. After all, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I am not a real fan of what PINK conveys, much to the chagrin of my more traditional colleagues. I don’t think breast cancer or any cancer will be wiped out through a new vaccine or drug. But what I do know is that you can definitely take these 3 Simple Steps right now—today—to substantially reduce your risk of having to face breast cancer in the first place.
#1: Eschew the Estrogen
One of the #1 risk factors for breast cancer is estrogen dominance. Even the Journal of the National Cancer Institute agrees. While balanced estrogen is crucial for reproduction, good cognitive function, glowing skin, and strong bones, higher than normal levels increase breast cancer by more than four times.
That’s no small stat I must say.
Genetically, some women seem to manufacture more estrogen compared to others. Estradiol and estradone forms are more likely to trigger tumor growth while estriol does not. In order to avoid estrogen overload, make sure all forms of estrogen you may be using (from synthetic hormone replacement to bio-identical hormone placement therapy) are balanced with natural, not synthetic progesterone.
I personally suggest the topical ProgestaKey with 20 mg of progesterone per pump—which is the physiological dose your body should be producing. Since soft plastics like Bisphenol A are particularly estrogenic, use glass when possible and never let your plastic water bottle get too hot. This is due to the tendency of estrogenic molecules to migrate when the plastic becomes overheated or warm.
Also, clean house. Get rid of toxic household cleaning products and cosmetics which often contain estrogenic ingredients (parabens, we’re looking at you). A breakthrough study at Tulane University revealed that two estrogenic pesticides combined were a whopping 1,000 times more potent than all by themselves.
#2: Stop the Sugar
You know this one I am sure, but I want to emphasize that sugar triggers insulin release as well as insulin growth hormone—both of which can feed cancer. Even too much fruit with natural fructose should be curtailed as fructose can contribute to non-alcoholic liver syndrome, which impacts nearly 90 million Americans. Quite simply, a fatty liver cannot breakdown hormones. Keep your fructose to 15 grams daily.
Note that apples and pears are surprisingly high sources.
#3: Supplement with Liver-Loving Nutrients
I especially like the two B vitamins choline and inositol because these Bs help metabolize estrogens and xenoestrogens. They can be taken separately, but my clients are covered with UNI KEY’s Weight Loss Formula which contains these lipotropic miracle workers with liver supporting milk thistle, Oregon grape root, lipase, and dandelion.
If you add a tablespoon of non-GMO lecithin to your daily smoothies (as you will find in the updated brand NEW Fat Flush Plan), you will have a complete Rx for effortless slimming and breast health. Lecithin both stimulates and thins your body’s bile—the liver’s detox method for excreting excess estrogen.
One thing we can all agree on is the desire to one day see a cancer-free world.
