Hello Beloved! This week we continue our focus on breast health with 3 ways to maintain the health of your breasts.
#1 Eat Well
Maintaining a healthy diet serves as a protective factor from many diseases. With respect to breast health, a diet that is low in or omits unhealthy fats, processed foods, red meats and refined sugars is recommended. Instead, it is advised that your diet be rich in plant based foods, whole grains and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids. (www.cancer.org and Health Essentials, Cleveland Clinic).
A Place to Start:
#2 Exercise Regularly
Watch the video below to learn about the most up to date recommendations for the physical activities for Americans. Additionally, take advantage of this physical activity planning tool to build a specific and actionable plan for success.
The combination of proper diet and regular exercise will serve to help you maintain a healthy body weight and lower the risk of developing breast cancer, as the hormones that encourage cancerous cell growth exists at higher concentrations in the fatty tissue of women who are overweight. (Health Essentials, Cleveland Clinic).
#3 Limit Alcohol Consumption
Watch to see why the Center of Disease Control says it is wise to limit alcohol consumption to reduce your risk of getting breast cancer.
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
