Breast Cancer Awareness: don’t be driven by fear

It has been said by some independent health researchers that as many as 75% of all of the cancers we are now experiencing are preventable, yet the cancer industry merely pays lip service to primary prevention while focussing on early detection, which is not prevention.  The cancer industry makes billions of dollars from exorbitantly expensive screening programmes and even more expensive and highly invasive drugs, surgery and cancer-causing radiation, all of which are after the fact and all the while playing on our fears and good intentions, compelling us to dig deep and donate more and more money towards the search for the "CURE".

As many as 90% of women who underwent breast cancer procedures may have received more harm than benefit.

Please be clear about my position:  I am very much in favour of research into the root causes of disease and into primary prevention.  But I do have serious concerns that the people are being duped into not only emptying their pockets, but also laying their bodies on the operating table for little or no health benefit.

The cancer industry thrives on disease growth - not disease reduction

Of course there will never be a cure simply because cancer is caused by a myriad of factors that a single intervention will never be effective against on it own.  In my opinion we already know enough to prevent the majority of cancers and until there is more balanced allocation of the billions of Government and donor dollars for TRUE cancer prevention and not just for more research and after the fact treatment, I will not be supporting any cancer fund-raising efforts, including the vast Pink Ribbon corporation.  Especially when these fundraising campaigns use fear to prey upon people.

Hi gary,
Breast Cancer Awareness: don’t be driven by fear
By Trudy Scott, CN (Certified Nutritionist)

Dr. Nalini Chilkov's new book

October is Breast Cancer awareness month so here are 7 resources to keep you informed, hopeful and inspired to take charge of your overall health and breast health - for prevention and healing!

#1 Reduce stress in your life. Here is a blog post I wrote in 2010 with information from my colleague Ellyn Hilliard: 10 Unique Ways to Support You During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Reduce the stresses in your life. Calm the nervous system. Meditate, go on a walk...

Start to look at chemicals in your life. Find natural alternatives to cleaning products.
#2 Exercise to prevent cancer and have fun at the same time 

up to a third of breast cancer cases in Western countries could be avoided with a nutritious diet and exercise

If exercise is a chore, find something fun to do and it will be a totally different experience 
#3 Be aware that a lot of pinkwashing goes on - it's quite awful how people are being taken advantage of. And know there is so much you can do that is healing and preventative. You can read more here: Pinkwashing for the cure (ridiculous!) or green for prevention?

Pinkwasher: (pink'-wah-sher) noun. A company or organization that claims to care about breast cancer by promoting a pink ribbon product, but at the same time produces, manufactures and/or sells products that are linked to the disease.Helyane Waldman's book "The Whole-Food Guide for Breast Cancer Survivors: A Nutritional Approach to Preventing Recurrence"Rebecca Katz's "The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen: Nourishing, Big-Flavor Recipes for Cancer Treatment and Recovery"
#4 Ann Louise Gittleman, author of The Fat Flush Diet and Get the Sugar Out, just posted a great blog on how to become a breast health warrior 

Raise your daily Vitamin D intake (D is like a hormone rather than a vitamin) to at least 1,000 - 4,000 IU to reach a level of at least 52 ng/mL. Women with serum levels at <13 ng/mL level had a 50% higher risk than those with levels of 52 ng/mL.Get the Sugar Out! Plain and simple, cancer feeds on sugar which is known to immobilize white blood cells for up to five hours.
#5 Dr Nalini Chilkov is my cancer referral source and she has a new cancer booklet called 32 Ways to OutSmart Cancer. It has beautiful back-to-basics advice about eating nourishing nutrient-dense, antioxidant- and polyphenol-rich real whole food. I especially like the section on herbs and spices and love the chapter on gratitude. Here is a yummy salmon recipe from her blog

#6 Be hopeful and optimistic. My colleague Fran Sussman shares her journey and story of recovery from breast cancer in this article called I am a breast cancer survivor: There is hope. Fran will be offering six-week support classes for women diagnosed with breast cancer starting in December.

I've come through it, with great resilience and rebounding health. I feel better than ever post-breast cancer, at age 60. I am healthy; my doctors concur.What can you do for prevention? Support your body with optimal nutrition, exercise, sleep and hydration. Use nutrition to minimize inflammation and insulin resistance.Acknowledge and work with your fear, but don't be driven by it.
#7 And my final piece of advice is stated so beautifully by Fran: "Acknowledge and work with your fear, but don't be driven by it." Anxiety and depression is very common in people who have been diagnosed with cancer so look for and get support in this area too, so you are not driven by your fear. 

You may need to address low GABA levelskeep your blood sugar stable with good quality protein at breakfast, support your adrenals, and drink calming carob instead of coffee.

Join us on The Anxiety Summit, Nov 3-16, and learn more about nutritional and natural solutions for anxiety - many of which improve overall health and wellbeing too.
