Breast Cancer: Prevention and Detection
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,
which is a perfect time to re-educate
ourselves and others on the significance of
this disease and how to detect it in a timely
Breast cancer is one of the
most prevalent types of cancer in the United
States and it affects women of all races.
Detecting breast cancer early is the key to
treating it effectively; however, taking
preventative measures to reduce your risk of
developing breast cancer is the best way of
maintaining your health.
Clinic recommends implementing the following
adjustments to your lifestyle to reduce your
risk of becoming more susceptible of
developing breast cancer:
Stop Smoking Immediately. Smoking has been
inexorably linked to breast cancer as well as
other types of cancers, such as lung cancer.
From the moment you stop smoking and each day
thereafter, your risk of developing breast
Limit Your Alcohol
Intake. Studies have shown that excessive
alcohol consumption increases your risk of
developing breast cancer. Consume alcoholic
beverages in moderation and limit yourself to
having less than four drinks per week.
Keep Your Weight Down. Obesity and being
overweight can also increase the risk of
breast cancer. Eating a healthy diet every day
and staying active regularly will decrease
your chances of developing this disease.
Schedule a Mammogram. Having a mammogram done
at least once a year is essential to detecting
breast cancer in its earliest stages if it has
developed. Speak with your doctor to determine
the appropriate mammogram schedule for you.
Adopting this proactive approach to remain
in good health throughout your life is an
important life-saving strategy that you owe to
yourself and to your loved ones. Devoting just
a few minutes to yourself each day to
implement the above preventative measures will
help keep you aware of any changes your body
may experience as well as give you peace of
How to Keep Weight Off In The Fall
When the leaves change into beautiful fall
colors and the cool, crisp air has us putting
on a sweater, we instinctively reach out for
hot comfort foods and warm drinks… think of
hearty beef stew or delicious hot cocoa. Many
people don’t count calories or limit their
portions during this time; which is how weight
slowly begins to creep on.
As the weather becomes cooler, it’s very
important to create and stick to a healthy new
eating strategy like the one outlined here, so
you won’t have to work at taking off any added
weight come spring:
Make Hydration a Habit.
Drinking water regularly and daily is
essential, no matter what season it is.
During the summer, we never leave home
without a bottle of water; however, the
cooler temperatures trick us into thinking
we don’t need to drink as much. Adding
some lemon or berries to your water will
give it a little flavor and it may
encourage you to drink it more.
Eat Smart Carbs. Totally eliminating
carbohydrates from your diet isn’t a good
idea and neither is consuming too much of
the wrong kinds of carbs. The best choice:
eating smaller portions of healthier
varieties of carbs, such as whole wheat
bread and whole grain pasta.
Limit Holiday Food.
Delicious holiday dishes such as apple
pie, baked macaroni and cheese, mashed
potatoes and gravy, and vegetables
slathered in butter are very high in
calories, which will mean extra pounds and
an expanded waistline. By limiting your
portions, you can still enjoy the taste of
traditional holiday foods without
consuming too much of them.
Invest in Your Fitness. Joining a gym is
one of the best investments you can make
in yourself this fall season! Not everyone
is motivated to work out when the
temperatures drop and most people don’t
have the time or space to exercise at
home. Visit the gym as often as you can
every week. This will help you stay toned,
improve your cardiovascular health and
stave off unwanted pounds.
Fruits and Veggies On Hand. Eating plenty
of organic vegetables and fruits during
the fall season will boost your immunity
and give you more energy to exercise and
engage in your favorite physical
activities. You can eat more of them to
help you feel fuller longer!
Accountable to Yourself. You’re the only
one who can encourage you to exercise
regularly and stick to a healthy eating
strategy! Relying on friends, family
members or your significant other to keep
you motivated and help you stay on track
won’t help you out in the long run. Your
desire for continued health and fitness
should come from within.
Following these healthy tips and turning them
into habits will help you remain fit and trim
this fall as well as carrying you through the
winter months. With a solid plan for healthy
eating, exercise, and portion control, you’ll
be able to slip into that holiday dress and be
the belle of the ball! Reserve a consultation
and let us offer you more suggestions on how
to stay healthy and slim in autumn!
