You may have noticed the amount of pink that has suddenly entered the month of October. Well, it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month and that means it’s time to celebrate those who have bravely won the battle against breast cancer and pay tribute to those who have lost the fight. It’s also time to take a serious look at the women who are fighting today, and ways to enhance our health to prevent breast cancer in the future. Here are a few tips that you can start incorporating into your life, so you stay strong and healthy in all you do. breast care

Reach a healthy weight (in a healthy way)

When you’re working to prevent breast cancer, there is no better time to start than right now. However, just because you are getting started today doesn’t mean you need to get everything accomplished today. Cancer prevention is not a sprint, but a marathon. If you need to drop a lot of pounds quickly to help get you started, then the smartest solution will be to enlist the help of a professional. At Laser Skin & Wellness, you’ll get to work with a registered dietitian that will customize a weight loss plan for you. This guidance will give you the support you need to succeed, so you stay healthy for a lifetime.

Consider a detox diet

As much as we would love to think that we aren’t exposed to heavy metal poisons and toxins in our everyday environment, the truth is our body is constantly battling their negative effects. Some of these toxins are naturally occurring in our soil and air, while others are man-made. Either way, they can cause a disruption in the way our bodies function on a regular basis and can cause some very serious diseases down the road, such as cancer. A detox diet works to naturally remove these dangerous metals from the body, so it can get back to preventing diseases.

Take a specialty test

Preventing breast cancer means that you need to focus on your entire body, not just your breasts. If you find that you have difficulty with fatigue, regular headaches, or any symptoms that keep you from working on a daily basis to prevent breast cancer, then a specialty test may just give you the answers that you need to get moving again. Pay attention to how you feel instead of just pushing through it. As we mature, we tend to think of others and allow our own negative symptoms go without caring for them. When you finally address what is ailing you and get the specialty test, you can then move forward to becoming a healthier and happier woman.
