When it comes to our health, we know that our lifestyle plays a major role in how we deal with illnesses.
The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a subject that may hit home for some of us. Be it a family member, a friend, or a friend of a friend etc., we have been impacted by it in some way. Breast cancer is a complex condition, which is why continual awareness and research is extremely important.
There are many factors involved in who develops breast cancer. As many of you may know, there is a genetic component (family history) involved, among many. Mammograms are a major factor in monitoring. When it comes to prevention, there are steps that can be taken to lessen the chances of developing this condition. When it comes to our health, we know that our lifestyle plays a major role in how we deal with illnesses.
According to an article published by the Mayo Clinic, there are a few ways in which individuals can limit their risk. They are as follows:
- Limit Alcohol consumption
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Be physically active

"I lost my mom to breast cancer in 2004, she was 50 years old. She had just started to adopt a healthier lifestyle."
The power of “support” is something that often goes unnoticed. Lifestyle changes, medications, and treatments all have their place, but having the support of others is a potent supplement to healing and being at ease. May we all continue to raise awareness, be supportive, and be mindful of our lifestyles to inspire others.
I lost my mom to breast cancer in 2004, she was 50 years old. She had just started to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Juicing, getting into holistic health and started to eat healthier but it was too late. Diseases start many years before we even start to feel symptoms. Don't wait to get sick to do better. Start to do better now.
BTW don't forget to do your monthly breast exam. Here is a quick video on how to do it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ4EaDU9oZ
