❤️Love your Breasts!!❤️

 

I was reading the book, How Not to Die by Micheal Greger, M.D. and was inspired to share some tips with you about your breasts and prevention. 

 

Specifically Michael Greger is discussing how to avoid getting breast cancer. Unfortunately each year about 230,000 American women are diagnosed and 40,000 die from it. But, there are things you can do NOW.

 

Cancer doesn’t grow over night, it takes years, sometimes decades, to form.

 

“People who are doing the right thing by improving their lifestyles in hopes of preventing cancer may in fact be successfully treating it as well. Don’t wait until you are diagnosed to change your lifestyle, start NOW, it is NEVER too late.”

 

In 2020, I was listening to a Simplicity Sessions podcast with Jenn Pike, listen here, as she interviews Nicole Scott about her journey with a breast scare due to her hair (Your Gorgeous Hair - read here). Both of these ladies are part of the Juice Plus Canada team that I proudly am affiliated with as well. 

 

Exercise:

Darwin said, it’s the survival of the fittest and when it comes to exercise…get fit. Sometimes we get caught up on how much we weigh but it’s deeper than that. Movement offers you a preventative measure against breast cancer (and more) because it tends to lower you circulating estrogen levels. Five hours a week of vigorous exercise can lower estrogen and progesterone exposure by about 20%.

Get Your Greens:

By adding cruciferous (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, kale, etc.) veggies into your daily diet you can significantly reduce your risk of breast cancer. For example, broccoli boosts the activity of detoxifying enzymes in your liver, therefore if you are eating a steak off the BBQ, having a side of broccoli will reduce your carcinogenic load.

 

Not getting your 13 minimum daily servings of fruits, veggies and berries - here is the simple shift I use daily to bridge the gap.

Flaxseeds:

These are powerful little seeds that are one of the richest sources of omega 3 fatty acids, but even more exciting is their lignan content. Lignans are phytoestrogens that can dampen the effects of the body’s own estrogen. Tossing a tablespoon into your morning smoothie will help to reduce your risk of having breast cancer.  Check out my morning smoothie here!!!

Massage Your Breasts:

In addition to those tips, I have been using the Breast Health Massage Oil from Living Libations for two years.  I absolutely love that I am taking a simple step to keep my breasts healthy.

By simply applying a few drops to my palms and then massaging around and on my breasts I am stimulating the circulation & lymph drainage thereby regenerating the movement of fluids in and to my breasts.

 

 

About your breasts & the massage oil:

 

  • Cells in our breasts can regenerate.
  • The skin on the chest is thin and breast tissue contains a great deal of fat, which readily absorbs the protective blessings of lipophilic essential oils and infused-herbal oils. Working synergistically, these botanicals may prevent and reverse cysts, rejuvenate cells, and increase immune cell activity. 
  • Several essential oils show promise in preventing or reversing imbalances that accumulate in adipose and lymph tissue.
  • Breasts contain an abundance of lymph vessels that support the circulatory system in maintaining proper fluid balance.
  • The health of our lymphatic systems is intimately connected to our breast health.
  • Lymphatic flow can be obstructed by tight bras, poor posture, lack of exercise, shallow breathing, and tight neck, shoulder, chest and back muscles.

 

As you also massage your breast, massage your armpits. This helps to drain your lymphatic tissues and improve your breast and overall health. While massaging you are also releasing toxins (BPA, urea, phthalates, heavy metals, arsenic, cadium, lead, mercury, etc. )

 

The Breast Health Oil contains cypress, yarrow and laurel oils which generate the movement of the fluid that removes toxins and supplies fresh nutrition to the cells. Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, the author of Advanced Aromatherapy, stated that simply "rubbing a few drops of bay laurel on swollen lymph nodes may have an immediate, noticeable effect."

 

Massage encourages the body to:

  • release excess stored estrogen
  • move debris-fluid away from the spaces between cells
  • and return the fluid to the bloodstream to be eliminated.
  • Over time, massaging the breasts may also enhance the elasticity of the ligaments in the chest providing improved breast support.

 

How to apply Breast Health Oil and Massage your Breasts

 

Our breast tissue extends from the breastbone in the center of the chest to the underarms and from below the collarbone down to the sixth or seventh rib.

 

 

  • Put 1-2 drops of Breast Health Oil on each hand and place your hands under the breasts.
  • Massage inward and upward in a circular motion, slowly covering the entire chest.
  • Use this time to become familiar with how your breasts feel.
  • Breast Health Oil Ingredients: Broccoli Seed Oil, Cumin Seed Oil, Calendula Oil, Saint John’s Wort Blossom Oil infused in Organic Olive Oil, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Rose Otto, Laurel, Cypress, Yarrow, Ylang Ylang, and Chamomile essential oils

 

Additional healthy breast practices include:

 

 
dry-brush
  • Dry brushing with Lymph Tonic
  • ensuring sufficient intake of dietary iodine and magnesium
  • creating healthy intestinal flora with fermented foods and probiotics
  • avoiding aluminum
  • eating organic, real food, and only caring for your body with authentic, organic botanicals

I’m a wife and mum, personal trainer, fitness/pilates instructor and body transformation coach, author of Cookie Dough in the Dark, creator of Vibrant Living Membership - your ONE STOP shop for health, fitness and nutrition..... among many other things!!  I’ve had many issues dealing with the scale going up and down, a muffin top that wouldn’t disappear, emotional eating binges that did not involve carrots and struggling with insecurity! Through all of this I just wanted to feel normal. I wanted to be happy like everyone else!

In my teens and 20’s I wanted the quick fixes, the magic pills, the fairy dust – whatever I could get my hands on to make me a lean, happy and sexy machine. Yup, found out it doesn’t exist. I wanted to cry!! I was so frustrated. I felt like I was going around and around until I was completely exhausted and back at the starting point. And when I talk with other women they feel that way too. So, I delved further into holistic health – the emotional, mental and physical – wrote a book, and have been in this field for many years helping 1000’s of women.


I discovered that by being smarter, not working harder, I could get the results I wanted and also for my clients. It started with some really small shifts that I will share with you over time. With this new knowledge, I felt ALIVE, VIBRANT and COMFORTABLE in my own skin. And my clients felt this way too!

My mission is to continue to help women step into the body they WANT. To feel confident & sexy, in control of their food choices and have their clothes fit just as they should while having the energy to live a VIBRANT life.
