“I have changed aspects of diet, stress, exercise and toxin exposure, too numerous to mention here. I am now more open to and actively pursuing change in support of my hoped-for, improved health outcomes and in allowing my body’s natural defenses to function well.”
“Two years after finishing the ACLP—I continue to do yoga, meditation, Reiki, Tai Chi, walking. Will not allow negative people near me. No longer watch any so-called “news”. Read every label on every single thing I buy. When not in use, I unplug my TV, Internet router, and cell phone. I say ‘thank you for my life’ every day.”
“Two years after finishing the course I am happy to say that I’ve radically changed my diet: I eat only organic foods; I stocked up on local farmer produce and learned how to freeze the veggies and fruits to eat during the winter; I clean my home using white vinegar, Seventh generation products only; I incorporated yoga, meditation, Reiki, and massage into my routine; I did A LOT of focused emotional de-toxing which was tough work but left me much lighter in spirit; I made a concerted effort to move away from negativity (people, events, etc.); developed a balance between solitude and social activities; laughed as much and as often as possible.”
A study published in JAMA Open Network found that “favorable” lifestyle was associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer even among women at high genetic risk for the disease in a study of more than 90,000 women, researchers reported.
The findings suggest that, regardless of genetic risk, women may be able to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer by getting adequate levels of exercise; maintaining a healthy weight; and limiting or eliminating use of alcohol, oral contraceptives, and hormone replacement therapy.
With almost a quarter of breast cancers thought to be preventable in the United Kingdom, “it is important to understand the contribution of modifiable risk factors … and how they affect or add to the inherited genetic factors,” the researchers wrote.
