Sugar-Free Protein Brownie Recipe

Breast cancer patients can exhibit an increased demand for protein. Tumors utilize glucose as their main source of energy supply. Thus, a diet supplying the cancer patient with sufficient protein while restricting the sugars tumors thrive on is a helpful strategy in improving a breast cancer patients healthy recovery.This protein rich recipe includes hemp protein powder which is not marijuana.

Powerful Antioxidant Breakfast Smoothie For A Cancer Diet

by Breast Cancer Authority StaffAccording to this study, by far the most comprehensive of its kind in history, there are only three whole foods on the planet that have more antioxidant power than cloves. One of them is amla—dried Indian gooseberries. Now, not only is it more powerful, but, also more palatable. You could add a whole teaspoon of amla to a smoothie, and probably wouldn’t even taste it. Try doing that with a teaspoon of powdered cloves. One sip; you’d be on the floor! Let’s look at the antioxidant content of some typical American breakfast foods: bacon [7] and eggs [+8], for example. A bowl of corn flakes [25] with milk [+9]. Egg McMuffin [16].

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. I also imagine that your head is spinning in many directions at once.

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...
