Breast Cancer Prevention
This is breast cancer month and also the month of fright. Being called back for a second mammogram is frightening! I know, I’ve been called back and gone to the next dreaded appointment for the big surgical removal and I wear the internal clip marker to prove it. My cystic breasts caused me painful problems for years. (I thank GOD I had benign results). What changed? Nutrition.
Yes, I cleaned up my diet and lost a lot of weight, but I also started feeding my body with high quality minerals and antioxidants because I knew I needed a “vitamin”. I never thought about it until this October, that I no longer have any cystic breast pain! It’s just not there.
Have you heard? New research has just come out linking chronic fibrocystic breast disease with iodine deficiency.
Recently, I had to privilege of hearing Dr. Lyle MacWilliam at an international health conference. He spoke of the link between iodine and Vitamin D deficiency associated with breast health.
According to Dr. Lyle MacWilliam, “Next to the thyroid gland, the breasts are the main glandular storage organ for iodine, which is required for normal growth and development of proper breast architecture.” Further, “iodine decreases oxidative damage to breast tissue cells.”
Iodine acts as an antioxidant protects the breast tissue. Did you know that next to the thyroid gland itself, the breasts are the main storage sites for iodine in our bodies?
What Can You Do?
Where do we get this magical iodine? Unfortunately, with sea salt becoming so popular and the reduction of iodized salt, our diets miss this wonder mineral. Oh, if you consume a lot of seaweed, you will get a lot of iodine, but who does that?
Finding a high quality antioxidant and mineral supplement is essential to breast health. There are a lot of fillers and unhealthy ingredients in so many of the typical over-the-counter brands. See what the average person consumes.
