As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Pink ribbons are displayed everywhere as people join the cause to search for a cure. It is a devastating disease and you deserve to be informed about all the possible risk factors so that you can protect yourself and your loved ones.
2 Little Known Causes of Breast Cancer
1. Progesterone Deficiency
The optimal balance of progesterone and estrogen is crucial to a woman’s health and well-being. The missing link that has been overlooked by conventional medicine is progesterone, which plays a critical role in protecting women against breast cancer.
Breast cancer is commonly caused by hormonal imbalance when estrogen is not balanced with progesterone, a condition called estrogen dominance. This hormonal imbalance can be easily corrected with bioidentical progesterone, which is identical to the progesterone made by your body. Find out how optimal progesterone levels help prevent breast cancer.
2. Iodine Deficiency
When you think of iodine, your thyroid gland comes to mind. However, did you know that iodine plays a very important role in breast health, as well?
It is well known that the thyroid gland utilizes iodine to produce thyroid hormones. But did you know that the breast tissue contains one of the highest concentrations of iodine? Iodine deficiency is associated with cyst formation. These cysts can turn into nodules and with prolonged iodine deficiency, these nodules can become cancerous.
Discover why iodine is a secret weapon against breast cancer.
