I'm Seeing Pink!

Now, now, before it creates any confusion, I didn't mean "seeing" (or dating) Pink the singer, like what this Nameless Twitter friend thought (duh!) - not that I don't like - take note- her SONGs - but nah! maybe one day when the world flips over and I turn gay! ( I can hear thunder and lightning rolling by - No Lord, I was just joking). No Armageddon wish here.

Anyway, October has been roaring and screaming with PINK (the color, of course), being it the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My household is proud to say that we are a supporter of the "Pink Syndicate" via Avon Walk. As a matter of fact, for those who don't know, we are dedicating a walk to my sister-in-law ( hubby's sister) on October 25th here in Charlotte NC. My hubby volunteered as Crew Team Leader while, I ( a divalicious bummer), supposedly walking this year, unfortunately couldn't make it! Yeah you guessed right (I hope!) - lack of Training indeed being (lazy) busy with work and (diva) life! Maybe next year...I have to start kicking off the Corporate heels and putting in the sneakers more often...

In the same grand fashion of celebrating this (boobsy) Pink month, I want to share this article about Nutrition for Breast (boobsy) Health. (Notice the "boobsy" interjection? sorry can't help it! I just have to say! It's all about the boobs afterall!). I hope you pick a thing or two that makes perfect sense to you. Now, it is not to say that doning that pointy Madonna spiky bra will actually add more sense to all these...but hey, you can try.

This article is adapted from Natural Awakening, spiced up with my little quirkiness. I dare you to read on...

1- EAT THE RIGHT FATS ( we have them and still trying to lose it- do we really have to eat more?)

- right ones : Fish Oil (Omega 3 Fatty Acid), Borage Oil or evening Primrose oil (contains Gamma Linoleic Acid), Flax Oil ( rich in alpha-linoleic Acid), Olive Oil and Shark Oil.

2- Get some Sun! - Vitamin D
Don't forget the sun tan lotion too. Vitamin D is produced in the skin when the body is exposed to at least 15 to 30 mins. of sunlight. OR just eat fatty fish like Salmon and Sardines as well as fortified Milk.

3- Eat that Broccoli ! - ( Look at your face grimacing! I love Broccoli ! ) yes- Cruciferous vegetables my dear...

Eating 2 servings a week of cruciferous vegetables helps counteract excessive level of estrogen*. Cabbage, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts and Cauliflower contains ANTI-CANCER, detoxifying substances.

*Excess body weight , particularly abdominal fat leads to increased levels of estrogen which has been linked to Breast Cancer.

4- Balance the Body's PH
Eat more Alkaline plant foods: Fresh fruit and veggies, dairy product: cottage cheese and yogurt, organic chicken, turkey,beef and fish. Dried beans: Garbanzo and Black beans, whole grains: Brown rice and oats, nuts and seeds.

5- Eat Less sugar (There goes my sweet tooth)
Sweets raises high blood glucose levels . Eat fewer sweet fluids and foods including high-glycemic fruits like watemelon and pineapple. Avoid High-fructose corn syrups commonly used in processed foods.

6- Add Micronutrients
Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium and Chromium, along with Probiotics.

7- Use Healthy Seasonings (dump that MSG now!)
Cinnamon, ginger, curry powder, onions, stevia, and garlic which has powerful antifungal and antibiotic properties.

8- Drink Green TEA (I'm drinking that now!)
It is rich with potent phytochemicals which helps prevent and possibly reverse some forms of the BIG C!

9- Exercise! (aw-not this one!- hubby shut up! not a word!!!)
30 minutes of exercise everyday cuts the risk of Boobsy Cancer by 75%. Regular Exercise improves immunity, lymph flow, and functions of the body's natural detoxification systems.

If this makes perfect sense to you- please pass the message. Let's help our Boobsies and our Boobsy and not-so-boobsy friends keep their boobsies so we and our boobsies can all continue enjoying our filthy expensive bras for the rest of our lives!- (and have hubby buying us more too!)

Ok 'nuff Boobsie talk... go spread the word - If we can help kill the disease with helpful informations! - Let's!

    But what if I want o increase my body PH level?I've learned that that will help me conceiving a baby girl (once sperm carrying X chromosome are more resilient).

  12. Hi Maricris! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I have been completely slack in updating. My son started football again last month and no time for anything! I liked this post...full of great info! And no hypnosis LOL. Guess I have to actually work at losing weight the normal way :)

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day! I have been very slack and have not had time to update since my son has been playing football. Football ends next week and I am going to post away! No hypnosis LOL. I guess I am going to have to work on losing the weight the normal hard way, diet and exercise. Love looking at your earrings and other crafts!

  14. Thank you for posting on this! I wish I had thought to do the same during Breast Cancer Awareness month... my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer in October and is having her first chemo treatment tomorrow. Last year, during BC Awareness month, two close family friends were diagnosed. All are currently doing well, thanks to so many prayers and wonderful doctors!
