Women’s Health: How to Prevent Cancer

Hello Everyone in Natural Health Nation-

I hope that everyone had a great weekend and was able to enjoy the warm weather.  There’s lots to do out in the yard now and the grass is growing very quickly.  It’s a lot of work, but I would rather mow grass then scoop snow.  The flowers are so pretty and the trees look great with their leaves grown out.  Now if we can just get rid of all the gnats, the weather would be perfect.  Don’t forget that we have Tea tree oil here at the office to treat those bug bites.

In our health shop this month were talking about Women’s Health, and this week we’re talking about breast and cervical cancers.  Our goal here at Natural Health would be to have women be healthy and not even get into these disease processes.  There are many things people can do to prevent all kinds of cancers but you must be aware of them and work them into your daily life and lifestyle.  Removing processed sugars and processed seed oils would go a long way to helping people avoid a diagnosis of cancer.  It’s a big business though, so you don’t hear much information about prevention unless you tune in to us here at Natural Health.  Like all the other degenerative diseases, cancer can be prevented even if it’s part of the family’s genetic makeup.  It’s important to realize that genes are just a blueprint and the science of epi-genetics helps us realize that the environment is what controls which genes are turned on or off.  This includes diet and chemicals in our environment so these are things you can control if you know about them.  One of our biggest goals here at Natural Health is to help educate patients to know what to avoid, and to know what foods and nutrients are necessary for the body to work correctly and not fall into a degenerative disease diagnosis.

The article than sending along this week looks at great herbs that help with memory and concentration.  This is not only for adults but for kids as well.  We have used these herbs the whole 42 years that we’ve been in practice.  We use a lot of Bacopa complex to help kids learn in school.  This herb, and others, can help with kids that have ADD or ADHD.  We use other detoxifying nutrition is to help those kids with autism.  We even have nutrition that helps with Parkinson’s and other neurologic diseases.  As long as you’re still breathing, the body wants to be healthy but there can be barriers that prevent this and that is what we do with our Nutrition Response Testing technique-figure out what’s going on in the body and get it to start healing itself again, as it has done for thousands of years.  It’s only been in the last 100 years or so that we have come across all these problems due to dietary issues and environmental toxins.  We have ways of helping both and getting the body able to heal itself again. 

Get Healthy, Stay Healthy, and Live Well
