how to prevent cancer

Breast Cancer Prevention… Starts With you

Nearly everyone these days knows someone with breast cancer… this may not have been the case 10 years ago and definitely not 20 years ago, it was rare. One thing I know for sure, like all disease, if the body can create it, it can take it away and it can be cured the natural way AND it can be prevented as well. It is one of those contentious topics where everyone has an opinion and one I usually like to stay away from behind closed doors about and I’m sure you would guess why…albeit, here are a few basic and simple ideas on prevention that really just scratch the surface of a deep rabbit hole.

1. Mammograms

Mammograms can cause breast cancer.   There are at least two reasons for this:

  • Radiation
  • Physical compression

Both integral parts of the procedure.  People have forgotten that radiation was the first proven cause of cancer, and, if you have ever been subjected to a mammogram, you know that they squeeze the breasts tightly in a vice before shooting radiation through them. The danger is exacerbated because breasts are more susceptible to radiation than any other tissue. In fact if you are pregnant, the consensus is you are not supposed to have a mammogram because you are exposing the fetus to dangerous radiation…but what about yourself? Ultrasounds are a much safer and more accurate option (if there is a lump there at all).

2. Eat More Organic Fruit and Vegetables

There have been innumerable studies linking breast health with an increased consumption of fruit and vegetables. One study found 48 percent less breast cancer among Vegetarians. The International Journal of Cancer reported a significantly reduced risk of breast cancer among those on high potassium diets. Apricots, bananas, avocados, figs, raisins, almonds, pistachios, pumpkin kernels and tomato paste all have extremely high levels of this important mineral.
There are, of course, other factors involved.  People who eat lots of fresh food are less likely to eat junk food or packaged food that contain harmful carcinogens and steroidal hormones.


3. Make Exercise Non-Negotiable

Take a daily walk in nature (raining or not!) or use a rebounder indoors if you have one.  If not, march in one spot in a well-aired room, while breathing deeply. Just 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each day is good for your health and 60 minutes each day can reduce your risk of developing cancer. There is evidence to suggest that the more exercise you do, the lower your risk – especially if this is more vigorous physical activity.

4. Sun Your Skin Regularly with NO Sunscreen

Get out in the sunshine regularly, without sunscreen, to absorb the crucial vitamin D that will protect your breasts and your whole body from cancer. It is known that vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) inhibits the growth of tumours, and that UV light is needed for synthesis of D3 in the body.  This means exposure without sunscreen, at least three times each week.  If you live in an area with little sunlight, be sure to supplement with Vit D.

5. Take a Selenium Supplement Daily

All countries with high concentrations of selenium have extremely low cancer rates. Australian soil is extremely low in selenium.

Research has been shown that selenium can contribute to natural antioxidant pathways which stimulate apoptosis (cell death) in human cancer cells. It has also been found to reduce metastasis in skin cancers such as melanoma.

** I recommend Metagenics Vit E Plus Selenium capsule – 1 per day.

6. Drink Fluoride-free Water

F. Batmanghelidj, MD, in his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, says that chronic dehydration contributes to the development of breast cancer.  “The breast,” he explains, “is a water-secreting organ…  If a woman already has breast cancer, drinking plenty of water will assist with any therapy by flushing out toxins… If you want to prevent metastasis from occurring, it is urgent that you drink enough water.  If you don’t, your breast may suffer horribly because of its unique role in supplying fluids.”

7.Wear a Soft Bra – or None at All

Have you ever noticed how red the areas around your breasts are after removing your bra?  This is a sign that the bra has slowed the lymph flow, which is crucial for filtering out the toxins that naturally collect in the breast.  Without this lymphatic drainage, your breasts cannot keep themselves healthy.  There have been some exceedingly persuasive studies that concluded that the more hours each day you wear a bra, the likelier you are to suffer from breast cancer.  Some women actually sleep in their bras, and their risk is high.

Boned bras were replaced by wired bras years ago, and they are even more dangerous because of the way the wires dig in and compress the flesh.  My advice is to go bra-less as much as possible.  When you must wear one, remove it as soon as you get home, and only wear soft ones.

8. Breastfeed

Breastfeeding protects mothers from breast cancer, especially if a woman breastfeeds for longer than 1 year. Women who breastfeed have less menstrual cycles throughout their lives, and therefore less exposure to estrogen, which has been shown to fuel some types of breast cancers.

9. Anti-Perspirants

There is persuasive evidence that anti-perspirants can lead to breast cancer.  They prevent and block a vital bodily function – the removal of toxins … via perspiration, (which is one of the means the body uses to purge poisons) and is normally a safeguard for our breasts.

But if these poisons are blocked in the body, they cannot be eliminated so they become deposited in the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes are located in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area, which is the location of most breast cancers.

It is postulated that ordinary deodorants are safe, provided they DO NOT contain aluminium, because they merely control odour and do not suppress perspiration.  So far as I know there haven’t been any studies on this.

Who would fund them?  To avoid offending, spread a bit of bicarbonate of soda, slightly dampened, in your armpits or I also recommend Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil Deodorant.

10. The Beauty Business

I’ve always made my own creams, because I know what’s in the bought ones! Beauty parlours and hairdressing salons are filled with hazards for breast health.

Hair dyes are a witches’ brew of cancer-causing chemicals, all of which are easily absorbed through the scalp. Shampoos and conditioners are filled with a shameful array of dangerous petrochemical substances.  The pungent odour from fake nails is enough to make some people faint.

Others complain of searing pains in their lungs when exposed to these toxic chemicals, which should be illegal. Cosmetics are chock-full of cancer-causing chemicals.

Choose carefully and don’t be sucked in by ads. Consider switching to pure coconut oil for cleansing and moisturising or contact me for natural hand-made creams.

11. Constipation

When constipated, food moves slowly through the colon, if at all, causing excess waste to pass into the bloodstream, creating a toxic environment, which is bad for your breasts, and all aspects of your health.  Don’t let this happen to you – eating lots of fibre and taking magnesium or Vitamin C to bowel tolerance will usually correct constipation.

Use magnesium chloride, never the excitotoxin magnesium aspartate. A well clearing bowel is critical for good health and the removal of carcinogens.

12. Sugar

In the UK where sugar consumption is 145gm per person per day, there were 23 breast cancer deaths per year, per 100,000.  In Japan, where daily per capita sugar consumption is only 57.4gm, there were only 6.8 breast cancer deaths annually per 100,000.

Data from other countries provided comparable results, and there have been many other studies with similar findings.  They all point the finger at sugar as a major cause of breast cancer.  Get the sugar monkey off your back, and look forward to a longer, healthier life.  But don’t switch to artificial sweeteners, which are deadly.  Agave is no better.

13. Relaxation

There is a profound connection between stress and breast cancer. Stress comes in a variety of forms. You can have emotional stress, for example money, work or relationship worries.

You can also have physical stress. For instance, not getting the sleep you need can make it hard for your body to do what it needs to do. An illness can put stress on organs and other parts of your body. The numerous toxins our bodies have to deal with in our day to day lives. If you find it difficult to cope, learn meditation and your whole world will change.

14. Excessive Alcohol Intake

Keep your alcohol consumption to the bare minimum.  All alcoholic beverages contain some carcinogenic elements that could increase your susceptibility to breast cancer.

15. Polyunsaturated Fats

Keep away from the highly-promoted polyunsaturated oils that have been conclusively implicated as major causes of the huge increase in breast cancer.  These fats have been used for decades to suppress the immune systems of transplant patients.  In other words, when an organ is transplanted, the immune system tries to expel it.

The polyunsaturates are so immune-suppressive that they are utilised in emulsions to stop the immune system from doing its job.  This is necessary for a transplant patient, but the rest of us need our immune systems to be strong.  Without a well-functioning immune system, we have no defence against breast cancer or any other diseases.  How the medical system can recommend a substance for the health of our hearts, then use the identical substance to render inactive the immune system of a transplant patient, is both mysterious and amazing, and probably corrupt.
