The best way to protect yourself from environmental factors which may cause or encourage the disease is to start. The younger you are when you make changes aimed at prevention, the more likely they are to be effective. (Remember that breast cancer may develop for as long as twenty years before detectable by mammogram).


Start breast screening with thermography as soon as possible and continue annual screening. Thermography can detect the cell changes and new blood vessel formation that precede breast cancer. If these changes are detected, all treatment options are on the table to reverse the process and effectively prevent the disease. 


Reduce dietary fat. High rates of breast cancer are apparently related to diets high in fat (meat and dairy products). Substitute foods high in fiber (fresh, organic fruit, vegetables and whole grains). Aim for three to five servings of fruit and vegetables daily with 2 being fruit and three being vegetables.


The breast is highly vulnerable to cell damage from x-rays, especially during puberty and pregnancy. Lead aprons should be used during dental X-rays. Pre-menopausal women should avoid radiation from screening mammogram. Single as well as cumulative exposure even to low dose radiation has been shown to increase breast cancer incidence. (See message below regarding mammographic radiation).


Don’t smoke, and avoid smoke filled rooms. Inhalation of cigarette smoke has been associated with many cancers including breast, lung, and cervical.


Limit or eliminate alcohol. Recent studies indicate that women tolerate alcohol intake poorer than men. More than 4 servings of alcohol per week have been associated with increased incidence of breast cancer.


Reduce excess weight. Many studies point to high levels of estrogen as a precipitating factor in breast cancer. There is evidence that fat tissue manufactures its own estrogen, which may be dangerous to a woman who is very large or who already has elevated estrogen levels.

Avoid hormone replacement therapy at menopause and any other medication with estrogen such as DES (a morning after pill).


Engage in regular exercise. It aids in the elimination of bodily toxins which accumulate in the colon, liver, lymph system and increase all cancer risk.. Exercise also helps to develop assertiveness, release anger and encourage forgiveness.


Reduce sugar consumption. Sugar and simple carbohydrates which rapidly metabolize into sugar increase the acidity of the blood. Excess blood acidity has been indicated in the incidence of all cancers.


Love your liver. Your detox organ rids the body of toxic waste, balances hormones, regulates blood sugar levels, and has many other functions. Alcohol, cigarettes, pesticides, preservatives, food dyes, constipation and other hazards overload and/or damage liver function.


Increase dietary anti-oxidants. Foods containing vitamins A, B, C, beta carotene, E, Coenzyme Q10 and others prevent and/or destroy tumors.


Drink adequate filtered or clean spring water and include flaxseed, sea vegetables, garlic, onions, olive oil, turmeric, brown rice, and rosemary in your diet.


Reduce salt, nitrites, smoked and pickled foods such as bacon.


Seek counseling from health care practitioners knowledgeable in nutrition, herbology, homeopathy, lymph drainage, castor oil packs, dry skin brushing, breast self massage, and/or acupuncture


Reduce stress. Excess stress reduces immunity. Prayer, meditation, affirmation, imagery and visualization used regularly activate one’s capacity to heal by increasing melatonin levels and enhance immunity.


Maintain optimal Vitamin D levels
Get adequate sleep


Create a life filled with joy, meaning, purpose, and gratitude and the time to enjoy it!

Mammography Claim: Low-dose radiation is "safe"

Truth:   Screening mammograms are a health hazard.  

The results of a 2004 study revealed that the risk of low-dose radiation DNA damage from the mammogram machine is considerably higher (up to 5X) than currently suspected. (see studies). How does that translate into real life? The pre-menopausal breast is highly sensitive to radiation. Under current guidelines, each mammogram exposure increases cancer risk by 1%. Risk is even higher for baseline screening at younger ages. This amount of risk is considered so acceptable that it's not even mentioned to the patient.  Multiply that times 5 . Now we know that if a woman has had 10 mammograms she is at 50% higher risk. How acceptable is this? Add other risk factors like smoking or family history and it becomes it evident why the cancer rate is increasing.


In order to prevent heart disease and stroke we must understand what causes them.

Both happen when tissues die as a result of oxygen and nutrient depravation caused by narrowed or blocked arteries. When the blockage is in the coronary arteries that service the heart, heart attack results. When the blockage is in the arteries leading to the brain, stroke is the result.

The narrowing is a progressive process called atherosclerosis, and stems from blood vessel damage. The vessels are damaged by toxins in the blood (free radicals) derived from poor diet, pesticides, smoking, alcohol, viruses, infections, allergies, stress and the normal results of metabolism.

The damaged blood vessels form scars and then cholesterol is sent as a repair agent. The combination of the scarring and fibrous fatty tissue lesions and the cholesterol deposits sent for repair harden, thicken, and narrow the vessels.



                     Know the status of your blood vessels by having a thermographic scan of your head and neck.  A thermographic image shows the areas of diminished energy and blood flow and thus provides an early indicator of heart disease, via atherosclerosis, before it produces a devastating heart attack or stroke. 

                     Maintain a proper diet. A diet high in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is associated with coronary heart disease risk, whereas HDLs protect against heart disease. Saturated fat is the chief source of LDL. Avoid fried and processed foods as well as those with high sugar and salt content. Avoid free radicals by including foods high in anti-oxidants (vitamins A,C,E,CoQ10, etc.) Include garlic, foods high in calcium, and substitute olive oil for other cooking oils, butter, and margarine.  

                     Preventing or treating high blood pressure will reduce the risk of both heart attack and stroke. 

                     Regular exercise reduces the risk of heart attack, lowers blood pressure and, in some cases, raises beneficial HDL cholesterol levels. Women who are sedentary have three times the risk of developing heart disease than those who exercise even moderately three times a week. 

                     Excess weight reduction in combination with exercise can be an important strategy for reducing the risk of cardiovascular and circulatory disease. The excess weight increases blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels, which increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. 

                     Reduce stress. All stress is implicated in cardiovascular disease. The multiple role demands on women may increase the incidence of heart disease. Changing one’s life circumstances may not always be possible, but the effects can be moderated by using stress reduction techniques. 

                     Consider the wisdom of taking hormonal contraceptives over the age of forty. The risk of heart disease is five times that of women under forty and seven times the risk of stroke as younger women. The addition of other risk factors, such as family history significantly raise the hazard. 

                     Get regular medical examinations. Knowing the status of your blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol levels is imperative in the prevention of heart attack and stroke.
