7 STEPS FOR A CANCER FREE LIFE
This October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Learn more about 7 easy
steps which will help you to never have to think about and be afraid
of breast cancer ever again.
Breast cancer might seem like a fatality, but it reality it is not.
This month, instead of dwelling on scary statistic, calculating your
risk of having breast cancer and being afraid that it might strike
you like thunder; but take the opportunity to reflect on what you
think, what you feel and what you can do to improve your life and
health. The wealth of information available about health can be
summarized in 7 easy steps to a cancer-free life. Empower yourself,
use these steps and be healthy!
The most important step is to realize the impact fear and stress
have on your health (and beauty!). An abundance of scientific studies
show the direct link between what you think, what you feel and what
is happening in your body. For example if you are in a constant
stress and misery because of your children or your partner/husband
and things are not the way you wish they were, at some point, this
mass of stress will be downloaded into your tissues, most likely
your breast, and will manifest itself as breast cancer[1,2].
The second most important step is to monitor your lifestyle and your
which is the amount of harmful chemicals present in a person's body. If your
lifestyle is unhealthy and you use food and beauty products laden
with bad chemicals, this reduces the threshold of your body resistance.
The combination of this stress+bad lifestyle could contribute to
the triggering of a cancer. However for this cancer to come up, many
cellular security checkpoints had to be destroyed. There are many
ways you can help to keep these anticancer cellular security
safeguards strong and functional. To keep it simple and efficient,
Here are 7 steps to a cancer (and illness) free life:
Even if you eat organic healthy food, you are still exposed to
pollutants through the air you breathe, the water you drink and the
lawns and golf courses you walk on. More and more reports show that
the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat are loaded
with unfriendly chemicals and there are even reports showing the
presence of drugs like antidepressants, painkillers and antibiotics
. Fortunately, there are
easy, efficient and natural ways to get rid of the toxic waste which
accumulates in your body. In the past, fasting was a simple way to
help the body to get rid of its body burden. Nowdays, our hectic
schedule makes it more difficult. However, you can use a combination
of French green clay (montmorillonite) and herbal extracts
(dandelion, milk thistle and chlorella for example) cures for 3 weeks
in the Spring and in the Fall (the changing seasons) to help your
body to eliminate the toxins, chemicals and pollutants accumulated
in your tissues.
Eat healthy, drink plenty
As the cells of your body continually renews itself (your intestine
renews itself every 2 days!), what you eat and drink is what builds
up your body! Eat plenty of local or organic vegetables, fruits and
nuts packed with anti-oxidants, lower your intake of sugar, alcohol,
meat and caffeine and drink plenty of water.
Clean up your bathroom
Toxins enter your body not only through the food and air, but also
through your skin which is the largest organ of your body. Did you
know that your skin absorbs toxins? 60% of ingredients of your beauty
products penetrate your skin into the bloodstream within 15 minutes.
Some cosmetic ingredients like parabens (preservatives widely used in
beauty products) or phthalates (additives in nail polishes and baby
products) have been linked to health issues like breast cancer, birth
defects and hormone disruption. Make sure that your beauty products
don't contain any!
Regular physical activity has been shown to be protective against
breast cancer (and lots of other health problems). It eliminates your
stress, anger and worries by channeling them into physical energy and
movement! Life is movement so keep moving with harmony
Far from being lost and wasted time, sleep is when your entire body
rests and regenerates. When you sleep, your brain resets itself and
flushes stress like your body flushes tensions and toxins. So make
sure you get at least 7-8h of sleep most nights.
Make green tea your beverage of choice
Drinking green tea is linked with lower incidence of many kinds of
cancer (and other diseases as well). Plus it is also
anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and helps with weight loss! You may
be addicted to coffee, but think of green tea once a day: it will
help you to stay healthy!
Meditate and manage your stress
All that we are is the result of what we think, consciously or
unconsciously. The more we give into stress and fear, the more we
deplete ourselves from energy and vitality…and health. Learning
to manage your stress is crucial not only for your happiness but
more importantly for your very down-to-earth health. The practice of
self-healing meditation opens a gate for your mind to rest in silence
and space. Meditation doesn't mean sitting in a perfect state of
peace while having no thoughts. On the contrary! Meditation is about
training yourself to place your attention where and when you want,
which helps you gain emotional stability and the ability to manage
the stress of your everyday life in a healthy and balanced way. Top
neurobiologists are just discovering how much good meditation does
to people's brain and body. Be ahead of everyone else, don't study
meditation, do it!
Staying healthy is easier than you think. These 7 steps sound simple,
yet they are much more powerful than you can imagine to keep you
healthy, if you decide to follow them as a daily routine. Try them
out and you'll see for yourself what a world of difference they make.
Empower yourself! You only need a little bit of daily discipline and
