10 Tips for Breast Cancer Prevention

 1. OPTIMIZE YOUR VITAMIN D LEVELS

Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin because the sun is our best source.  So after decades of loading up on the sunscreen, it is no surprise that a majority of the population is now deficient. Vitamin D blocks the growth of breast cancer tumor cells. Someone with light toned skin produces enough vitamin D after only about 15-20 minutes in the sun a few times a week (darker skinned individuals ...

The Sun – Nature’s Vitamin D

Sun exposure to the skin is the human race’s natural, intended, most effective and most neglected source of vitamin D.

Vitamin D sufficiency, along with diet and exercise, has emerged as one of the most important preventive factors in human health. Hundreds of studies now link vita-min D deficiency with significantly higher rates of many forms of cancer, as well as heart disease, osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis and many other conditions and diseases.

Sunshine is a free commodity. Humans make 90 percent of ...

Food Sensitivity? No Need to Stay Home for the Holidays

Food sensitivities are hard enough to deal with, then the holidays roll around and it seems even harder.

First, there is Thanksgiving, with turkey and stuffing and all the great sides, not to mention those yummy desserts. Next up — the Christmas parties that continue all the way to the Christmas dinner table.

The holidays can be tough, especially when a food sensitivity diet is still foreign to both you and your family. But with preparation and honest communication, you can enjoy all ...

Breast Cancer Prevention and Risk Factors

October is all about Halloween for the kids. But orange yields to pink for adults in October, because it is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women, behind lung cancer. Prevention and early detection are the keys to this deadly disease. Today I want to focus on prevention and risk factors.

The body is composed of 50 to 70 trillion cells. It would take 1.5 million years to count them all ...

Low Glycemic Foods

Low Glycemic Foods: Why should you care?

Losing weight is the goal, but not everyone is successful at reaching that goal. Frustration sets in when you greatly reduce your calorie intake and the pounds don’t disappear. You’re still the same weight — still the same size — or you may lose weight and then gain it right back.

Many believe that simply counting calories will result in weight loss. But guess what? It’s not just about the number of calories. It’s about where ...

The Ketogenic Diet

Mercola.com (Dr. Joseph Mercola, trained in traditional and natural medicine) just released information about the ketogenic diet and how he says it can starve cancer. I was excited to read this since I have been using a ketogenic diet plan in my office for over 10 years. The plan calls for eliminating high glycemic carbohydrates — those carbohydrates that convert to sugar rapidly — and replacing them with healthy fats and protein.

The average female will lose 12-18 pounds of body fat ...

GMO: What is it? What does it mean?

When you see “GMO free” on food labels, what does that mean?

GMO stands for Genetically Modified Foods. GMO on the label is used by some companies to let the consumer know that the DNA of the product has been genetically modified in order to present a prettier, bigger and insect-free product. Companies can realize a higher profit margin with a GMO crop full of “beautiful and healthy” foods.

For many years, companies have stood by the quality and safety of these ...

Conscious language

I want to talk about the word choices we make, our ‘conscious language,’ because I’m not sure everyone understands how crucial language is in our overall ability to thrive.

Language touches every thread and fiber of our reality. By changing one word, we can expand, contract or alter our consciousness, our awareness, and our reality. Language shapes our world and can affect our health – do I have a disease (dis-ease), am I happy or sad, do I have abundance or ...
