Estrogen, Exercise, Breast Cancer

Friday, May 10, 2013

Regular vigorous exercise helps manage excess estrogen -- the kind that's associated with breast cancer.

OK, then: another reason for all of us breast cancer survivors to keep on getting sweaty!

    I think healthy living - clean eating, lots of water, plenty of fresh air and exercise - helps us stay healthy and fight off cancer!

At least, that's my hope!

  Many times I think cancer is Governments way of frightening the Population! When the Drs even mention that word I look the other way, for those who try and save their life by chemo and radiation seem to kill themselves off sooner. so why bother? Many times I think its Governments way of killing off people before their time! Walking is good for a lot of things..... keeping moving keeps your brains , ears, nerve, heart and skin healthier! That much I know! Herbs prevent a lot of cancers, so does Tumeric, oregano, garlic and other herbs and spices! Even dark chocolate can prevent some cancers! Because of the antioxidants! But anotehr thing.... if you believe you will get it, you will, so believe you wont will keep it from you! susana

    Thanks for the article and information! I would have liked to know what their definition of vigorous exercise is. I have always enjoyed exercise, and the harder and faster it is the more I enjoy it. Every article you read these days is touting the benefits of keeping moving to ward off all kinds of health problems -it just makes sense and why I try to make it a priority in my day no matter what comes up.
Here is to working out and emoticon those bad chemicals out of your system!
Find your fun fitness groove and enjoy!

    Just can't get away from the fact that we were designed to keep moving and grooving.

    Thanks for sharing! This month will be my 15th year as a BC survivor. Before diagnosis, I rarely had (took) the time to exercise - now it is a huge part of my life. I've not had any issues since I went thru treatment, and I think all my exercising is helping tremendously!! Congrats to you on being a survivor!!
