Breast Self Exam And Mammogram Is Crucial For Women With Implants

Breast Self Exam & Implants Medical researchers have been testing and implementing newer techniques for imaging the breast to screen for breast cancer. Researchers believe that in the near future, breast-imaging techniques will be able to distinguish malignant tissue from benign, so there will be no need to remove tissue to reach a diagnosis. Cancers could be detected earlier, and only the cancerous tissue would be eliminated. Even with improved breast imaging techniques, women themselves during a Breast Self Exam discover most breast abnormalities. Every woman should be familiar with the way her breasts feel, so if there is a change, she will be aware of it. The FDA estimates that up to two million women have breast implants in the United States and up to 10 million...

Hormone Therapy & Breast Cancer Risks

How Did Doctors Not Know About the Risks of Hormone Therapy? We’ve known about the role of estrogen in breast cancer going back to the 1800s, when in some cases, surgical removal of the ovaries seemed to help. Ovaries were said to send out mysterious influences to the rest of the body, which, in 1923, we identified as estrogen. The medical profession jumped on this discovery and started injecting menopausal women by the thousands—shots that gave a respectable hook on which to hang visits to the doctor. Soon, there were pills, and patches, and medical journals—like the Journal of the American Medical Association—regaled doctors with ads on how they can “help women to happiness” by prescribing estrogen. You could turn this into that. “For when women outlive...

Powerful Ideas For A Successful Breast Cancer Healing Journal

Keeping a JOURNAL during the process of healing is very important. I know many of you get scared of a blank page starring back at you or some of you might be thinking, “are you off your rocker?, I don’t want to remember this.” I imagine that you are having feelings and through ts that are at times overwhelming.

A JOURNAL becomes your friend, confident, and safe place.A JOURNAL invites you to tell “it” all about whatever is going on inside of you. You...

How To Get Your Healing Garden Off Drugs With Natural Pesticides

Many common pesticides (such as ant, roach and mice poisons) have been linked to breast cancer. It probably shouldn’t surprise us that these compounds can be dangerous; they are designed to kill insects with which we share many common biological systems!Several pesticides are known endocrine disruptors (they disrupt natural hormone-signaling pathways), and through these mechanisms have been implicated in increased risk for breast cancer. In addition to effects by themselves, these chemicals have been shown to have additive effects with other kinds of endocrine disruptors. In other words, exposures to small doses of pesticides may have greater effects when people are also exposed to other chemicals to which we are all commonly exposed.Unfortunately, when pesticides are applied in the home, they don’t just kill bugs and...
