Lowering your Risk of Cancer

There always seems to be some research on the horizon to “Cure” cancer which is interesting because apart from the fact that there are a myriad of causes of cancer being from diet, medication, oral contraceptives, hormone medications, drugs, emotional stress & excessive drinking of alcohol, just to name a few. Plus the fact that no health practitioner is allowed to make a statement as such it would then seem an impossibility to have a “Cure” for Cancer.

So let’s look at what are some of the areas that will cause or trigger cancer:
1 .Eat a healthy diet - A healthy diet not only reduces your risk of cancer, it also lowers your risk of heart disease, and helps improve or maintain your overall health.
A healthy diet, according to the Cancer Society, includes:-at least five servings of fruits and vegetables, -three servings of whole grains, and limiting your consumption of additives and preservatives found in processed foods (certain cheeses, canned foods, boxed foods) and meats (lunch meats, breakfast meats, others). Also avoid or eliminate red meats which are high in fat.

2. Become physically active. Eating right and exercising regularly go hand-in-hand. Just 30 minutes of physical activity, on five or more days of the week is all it takes to reap the health benefits of physical activity. You will not only help to control your weight, you'll also significantly reduce your risk of cancer, as well as your risks for heart disease and diabetes.
You have many choices for how to exercise. You can walk, dance, bike, run, join a gym -- whatever suits you. Other ways to increase your level of activity include taking stairs, walking rather than driving, and parking farther away.

3. Take time out to care for you: Regularly take time to stop, dream, and let your mind wander/meditate on a daily basis. Enjoy supportive care such as massage, facial treatments and Reflexology.
4. Engage with a regular health support; choose a practitioner that will help you to look after you. Who has a good reputation for helping people to become well?

5. Knowledge: Be aware of the side effects of any medications before taking them; it is your body and you do not have to take anything that will do it harm or have any procedures that you feel are going to cause you further problems.

6. Surround yourself with positive people who have only the best intentions toward you. Read positive books, watch positive movies engage in positive activities. These will all boost your immune system; you’re thinking & brain performance

Something for you to consider, I encourage you to do further research into this to equip yourself for a Healthy Life.
