Welcome to Fall and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

posted 2014 Oct by

Awareness

According to breastcancer.org, one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime, and nearly 40,000 women lose their lives to the disease each year.
Breast Cancer does not distinguish. It chooses its victims randomly. This horrific disease has affected each and every one of us.

With increased awareness we can become more attentive to the signs and symptoms of this devastating disease. Checking your breasts regularly especially among those with a family history of cancer, can help with early detection. At this stage, the disease is likely to be more treatable.

Prevention – Take charge of your health

Researchers have yet to come up with a cure. With these numbers, we should do whatever we can to prevent becoming a statistic. Being proactive and taking charge of you health helps lower your risk of the disease by decreasing inflammation and supporting a healthy immune system.

Making appropriate improvements in your diet and lifestyle, regular exercise, reducing stress and decreasing toxic exposures from every source possible, can help decrease your risk.

Toxicity in our environment

It’s very important to first take careful stock of your household and personal care products. Read labels and make sure you use as much natural products as you can. Toxic overexposure plays a large role in cancer development.

 

Recent studies, published in the National Institutes of Health journal, states that you can reduce your risk of breast cancer by avoiding certain chemicals found in common, everyday products. These include those found in processed food and personal care products.

 

Dietary choices

If possible, avoid sugar and processed foods. Consider adding more greens and incorporating more super food like turmeric into your daily meals. Try to eat as much organic as possible, high quality meat meats, avocado and coconut oil.

Get efficient amount of Vitamin D - spend some time in the sun. Avoid soy products, which are not fermented. Make sure to get enough sleep and avoid stress as much as you can.

Stress Management

Yale University put out a study showing acute stress can cause the amplification of inflammation. Tests conducted suggest that stressful events can actually make inflammatory disease worse.

Managing stress can be a challenge. Thankfully there are tools. Breathing exercises, Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga and Chi Kung movement, Applying pressure to meridian points can all help reduce stress levels.

Aromatherapy and the use of essential oils have been shown to help manage some of the symptoms of anxiety — including stress, insomnia, and sadness. 

Essential Oils are usually dispersed into the air through a diffuser. Wearing Pendants filled with essential oils can provide the effects of Aromatherapy throughout the day.

 

The GingerChi Stress Relief RollOn is especially formulated with a blend of Lavender, Rosewood, Lemon and sweet orange. These essential oils are known to calm the nerves, decrease anxiety and improve one’s mental state. To relieve stress, apply to pulse points on the temples, wrists and feet.

 

When we are calm, we can become more aware of our thoughts and feelings. When we feel less overwhelmed, we can better manage our responses. When we practice mindfulness we have the ability to become less reactive to life events and able to work towards life sustaining change.

 

The importance of Chi and Balance

Chi is the vital force in all living things. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) there is an understanding that when there are blockages in the body and the flow of Chi is inhibited, toxins build up, causing blockage that can result in diseases such as cancer.

Blockages are the result of many things. Stress, sedentary lifestyle, diet and changes in the environment. Internally we can help the flow of Chi with regular massage.

The GingerChi line of Wellness Massage Oils has been specifically designed to help encourage women to be proactive in their health and well being through regular self massage.

One of the ways to ensure a healthy flow of Chi and maintain breast heath is self-massage with GingerChi Breast Oil. This a highly therapeutic blend, with pumpkin seed, baobab, fresh ginger, cypress, grapefruit and other powerful essential oils helps naturally lift and firm the breast and décolletage as well as assist with hormonal balance and detoxification of tissue.

When these fluids remain stagnant, toxins can build up in the breast tissue, creating the perfect environment for benign lumps, fibroids, and in extreme cases the beginnings of cancer. Not only does the GingerChi Breast Oil help keep the area clear, but we believe the act of regular breast massage helps women become familiar with their breasts, improving their ability to feel abnormalities if they do occur.
