Simple Self-Care Strategies
3 Quick Tips To Keep You Healthier
by Sherry Regiani
Women do it all because it has to be done. How much time do you give to yourself? Here are three quick tips to help keep you healthier!
Vitamin D and Breast Health
Could the majority of breast cancers be preventable if a woman is taking optimal levels of vitamin D? Some studies describe breast cancer as a "vitamin D deficiency syndrome."
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola and others, “Optimizing your vitamin D levels may help you prevent more than 16 different types of cancer including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, breast, prostate and skin cancers.”
Michiganders don’t get enough sunlight, even in summer. Supplementation is necessary, but how much is enough to reach the ideal levels of 50-70 ng/ml? Some say 1,200 to 5,000 IU/day. Most multi-mineral vitamins average 600 IU, and do not contain vitamin K2 levels necessary for proper use of vitamin D and Calcium.
Your physician can test your vitamin D levels. You can get as home test kit online at Amazon, or as part of “D Action Project” from Grassroots Health.
Toxic Teeth and the Breast Cancer Connection
In an article in GreenMedInfo LLC in 2012, Dr. Veronique Desaulniers stated. “There is no safe level of mercury. Mercury is the most toxic naturally occurring substance on the planet, yet, according to the EPA, there is currently over 1,000 tons of mercury from amalgam fillings in the mouths of Americans.”
“Over 67 million Americans exceed the exposure of mercury vapors considered 'safe’ by the EPA because of the presence of amalgams in their teeth. The release of vapors from chewing food, gum or drinking something warm has an estrogen disrupting effect.”
The next time you need dentistry, tell your dentist you want the more biological and metal-free materials.
You Don’t Need Fluoride, and Neither Do Your Kids
Fluoride is touted as saving millions of teeth from tooth decay. Do you know about the adverse effects? Poison Control information is printed on the package of traditional toothpaste.
Instead, brush at least once daily with a dry toothbrush or with water. Floss every night and rinse your mouth. Limit sweets (including fruit and fruit juices). Great reading at: RealFarmacy.com/32-eye-opening-quotes-about-fluoride.
