Take the Road Less Traveled

October is known for “pinkwashing”. Many companies jump on the bandwagon to support the breast cancer cause by promoting a pink ribbon product. They produce, manufacture and/or sell products and link it to the disease. In recent years, the definition has expanded and includes any company or organization that exploits breast cancer for profit.

Instead of following the crowd, spending money on these frivolous pink items, there may be a better way to be the best health advocate. When you take the road less traveled, you can use new ways to promote breast health instead of promoting awareness of cancer. Self-care with nutrition; stretching and exercise; understanding your emotions and learning how to deal with them; and getting rid of toxic waste in your body with a lymphatic breast self-massage are important steps to gain a new perspective and take that road to breast health.

Many women fear what they do not know and are waiting for the “bomb to drop”. If there are fearful thoughts, it may bring the problem to them. In doing all the right things, a body will naturally respond to having a healthy immune system. Dispel the fear by seeking love. Learn to love your body for the beautiful temple it is. When your physical body finds it is not capable of doing what you have always done, you’ll learn there are alternative ways and energy to enjoy every minute of each day.

There are several books and professionally written blogs for information and education with studies that back up the idea that the old traditional way with radiation and chemo does not always work for the most part. There are other avenues to travel. Trust the information from holistic practitioners such as 
Dr. Christian Northrup and Dr. Véronique Desaulniers, author of Heal BreastCancer Naturally.

Another excellent tool, thermography is an FDA-approved, safe, non-invasive diagnostic that will give you answers to early breast abnormalities. It can be a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.

Taking the road less traveled, with education about self-care as your focus, puts you in the driver’s seat. It can be invigorating to be in the driver’s seat of your life, with the destination being your wellness. Find happiness and joyful occasions where smiles come easily. Hoot and holler and beat the drums loud to let the world know that you have found love and a new way to travel.
