Lessons in Addition & Subtraction for Breast Cancer Prevention

The Breast Cancer Awareness campaign has been a huge success in creating momentum behind the cause. Everyone is familiar with the pink ribbon and what it represents. From pink appliances in stores to collegiate teams proudly displaying pink sports gear, Breast Cancer Awareness reminders are everywhere, especially during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

As Americans, we have definitely become more aware of breast cancer. We know that breast cancer takes the lives of more than 40,000 women each year. We know that nearly 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually. Sadly, many of us know this from firsthand experience, whether it has been a personal journey or one where you walked beside a beloved mother, sister, daughter or friend. We applaud the efforts of heightening breast cancer awareness and are fully in support in finding a cure.

However, our question remains: what are we doing about breast cancer prevention? Is anyone rallying behind breast cancer prevention awareness? You can bet it’s not going to be a large pharmaceutical company.

So today while we support those women who have battled and continue to fight this disease, we want to do our part in support of breast cancer prevention so that millions of women will never have to depend upon finding a cure.

Below are a few lessons in arithmetic that can go a long way in the prevention of breast cancer:

Ensure that your levels are optimal by asking your physician to measure your 25-hydroxy vitamin D level.

Eat your vegetables! Especially cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli.

Optimize iodine status by taking 1-2 tablets of 12.5 mg of iodine.

As progesterone levels often begin to decline in a woman’s 30s, the addition of to even out hormonal imbalance can be incredibly important in breast cancer prevention.

It may seem like a no brainer, but we all need the reminder to make a daily priority. It doesn’t have to be strenuous or time consuming; just get up and move!

Eliminate found in pesticides, insecticides, preservatives, toxins found in cosmetics and personal care products. Xenoestrogens also leach into our food from plastics when we heat our food in plastic containers or drink from plastic water bottles that have been left in the heat during shipping.

Avoid sugar! Sugars weaken the immune system and feed cancer cells.

Avoid such as Premarin and Prempro.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
