Think Beyond the Pink

Every month it seems is an “awareness” month and October is one of the biggest with “Pinktober” where everything feels like it turns pink!  Since most of us are already aware of women and breast cancer, we want to expand your awareness so you know there is more than women and pink. There are men too!

Yes, it’s true that 1 in 8 women (about 12%) will most likely be diagnosed with breast cancer but do you know that men can be diagnosed as well? This year it is projected that over 2,240 new cases of male breast cancer will be diagnosed and over 400 men will die from the disease.  Although a large percentage of breast cancers are not genetic, many are due to a genetic or hereditary background.  Approximately  5-10% of breast cancer can be caused from a variety of gene mutations including the BRCA (breast cancer susceptibility gene).  50% of BRCA carriers are male! In general there is a 1% chance of a man being diagnosed with breast cancer (1 in 1000) however this percentage increases up to 7% if a man is a carrier of the gene mutation.

There are many factors that increase the risk for men regarding breast cancer.

First, do men (or women) acknowledge that men have breast? Aren’t they just pecs?!

Is there a family history of breast and other cancers as most don’t equate this with a male breast cancer risk.  Learning about your hereditary health can save your life. If you have a family member with early age diagnosis of Prostate, Melanoma, Pancreatic, Breast and other cancers, then you may be at a higher risk. Even if you are a carrier of the BRCA or other gene mutation this does not mean you will get breast cancer, it just means you are at a higher risk and need to take the necessary precautions and be educated.  Perform a self breast exam more often or having frequent mammograms (yes men can have a mammogram and should do self exams!) are important tools for early detection. Unfortunately since no is checking, men are often diagnosed far too late.

In addition to knowing your risk factors, changes in your diet, supplementation, exercise programs and meditation may also help. Choosing more organic foods with little to no hormones added has been found to be helpful as breast cancer is often hormonally driven in men. A diet filled with organic cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, kale along with berries can also be beneficial.  Since we can’t always eat our nourishment, taking additional supplements or choosing green powders for drinks can help get the proper daily intake as well as supplements such as Vitamin D, Turmeric, Green Tea and natural products that works as an anti-inflamatory or antioxidants.

So this month while everything is turning pink, think about turning your lifestyle a little green. Now that you’re aware, become educated with your genetic background, know your risk and make healthier choices. And remember this month it’s not just about the women, it’s about the men too!

The Hidden Dangers of GMOs

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Environment,Food Politics at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many of the US’s most harvested crops, including corn, soy, sugar beets and cotton, contain DNA that was manipulated in labs to resist drought, disease and insect infestation. However, these potentially dangerous genes can be transferred to DNA found in bacteria living inside of us. Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning.

GMOs are bad for the environment. Overuse of Roundup results in “superweeds,” resistant to the herbicide. In return, farmers have to use even more toxic herbicides every year. Between 1996 and 2008, US farmers sprayed an extra 383 million pounds of herbicide on GMOs. As if that weren’t bad enough, herbicides like Roundup reduce biodiversity and can harm insects, birds and other animals.

GMOs are affecting our health. The number of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses has increased from 7% to 13% over the past nine years – a figure that doesn’t even account for the increase in food allergies, autism, and reproductive and digestive issues that afflict more and more of us each year. Many medical groups including the American Public Health Association and American Nurse Association condemn the use of GM bovine growth hormone due to the fact that milk from treated cows contain insulin growth factor 1, which has been shown to cause cancer.

GMOs will not feed the world. Contrary to Big Agriculture’s argument, the agricultural methods behind GMOs do not result in higher yields. A report authored by more than 400 scientists and backed by 58 governments with The International Assessment of Agricultural Knowledge, Science and Technology for Development (IAASTD) stated that GM crop yields were “highly variable” and in some cases, “yields declined.”

GMOs are present in over 70% of supermarket foods. Protect yourself and protect your family by doing the research and making smart choices. This handy guide will help you identify and avoid foods with GMOs.

4 Nutrients You Need For Younger Looking Skin

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Personal Care at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

Let’s face it, no one wants to grow old. If there was a magic serum to stay young and beautiful forever, everyone would want a bottle. While this may sound like make believe, science and research shows that certain nutrients can, in fact, slow down the aging clock. Olympian Lab’s Optimal Blend Skin Support can help nurture and support your skin with these four ingredients.

Hyaluronic Acid – As we age, our body’s production of hyaluronic acid begins to slow down. This molecule is responsible for the skin’s moisture. Hyaluronic acid helps rehydrate the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

DMAE – This ultra-firming ingredient has anti-inflammatory properties which provide a lift to aging skin and improves elasticity. This nutrient works best when applied topically and taken as a supplement.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – Considered one of the most powerful antioxidants, this compound is fat-soluble and can prevent free radical damage from occurring inside the cell. As we age, the cell’s natural defenses begin to decline, but ALA reduces the damage that results in wrinkles.

Grape Seed Extract – Another antioxidant powerhouse, grape seed extract is rich in fatty acids that are important for maintaining a cell’s structure. Plus, it’s astringent-like properties tone and tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance.

LuckyVitamin is offering an exclusive deal with Olympian Labs. When you purchase Optimal Blend Skin Support you’ll receive a FREE 1.7 oz. serum. Both products promote youthful looking skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Acure Skin, Body and Hair Care: Battling Breast Cancer with Better Choices

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Personal Care,Women's Health at 8:00 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

On average, women use a dozen personal care products containing 168 chemical ingredients every day.  Manufactures claim levels are too low to cause harm, however, low levels layered on everyday, add up. When one third of personal care products contain at least one ingredient linked to cancer and up to 80% of products may contain one or more hidden hazards that are not even listed on product labels, it is no wonder that the likelihood of a woman being confronted with breast cancer in their lifetime has risen to 1 in 8. Fortunately, recent studies show that breast cancer is linked to several environmental and genetic factors, which can be controlled or mitigated. Using clean personal care is an amazing first step.

Acure is a family owned and operated company, founded on sustainable principles, to provide the highest quality fair trade, natural and certified organic personal care products. Kristy and Jon Guerra founded Acure as a way to honor Kristy’s grandmother, who battled breast cancer for over 10 years.

“I wanted to help raise money for breast cancer research and awareness while also providing healthy products that promote healthier living and a greener planet,” says Kristy.

In addition to creating clinically proven effective formulas that steer women away from cancer-causing ingredients, Acure also donates 5% of their skin care proceeds to Bright Pink, a national non-profit organization that provides education and support to young women who are at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. They arm young women with knowledge, options and a great attitude, and offer companionship and empathy during their journey.

Acure continues their commitment to clean, healthy, clinically proven effective products, as they extend the facial and body care line to include hair care.  These formulas are salon tested for maximum performance, using the finest natural, organic and fair trade ingredients available, leaving out the parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petrochemicals, animal bi-products and synthetic fragrances found in most shampoos and conditioners.  Acure uses cutting edge plant stem cell technology to address specific hair concerns at the root and follicle level.  Argan plant stem cells extracted from the Moroccan argan tree, famous for its prized argan nut oil, are the first active stem cells with proven effect on real dermal stem cells. In the skin, argan stem cells support the dermal stem cells in their regenerating potential, accelerating the skin’s natural repair process. In the hair, they strengthen the follicle connection between the hair fiber and the follicle itself, promoting healthy hair retention and growth.

Not only is plant stem cell technology impactful to the skin and hair, it also has far reaching positive impact to the environment in that it supports preservation and availability of the most rare plant species for generations to come. Argan plant stem cells are 100% non-GMO, free from herbicides, pesticides and fungicides and organically extracted.

Acure’s Lemongrass and Argan Stem Cell Shampoo and Conditioner not only embody these dynamic little buds of gold but also folds in organic Moroccan argan oil and CoQ10 to support keratin production and strengthen the follicle connection, rich avocado oil, which provides vitamin B12 and moisture, while lemongrass cleanses and clarifies.  All of our shampoos and conditioners are vegan, gluten free and color safe, plus for each hair care product Acure sells, they donate 10 cents to Water.Org. Water.org provides underdeveloped communities with sustainable, sanitary water sources through local partnership, technology and education.

Try them all and fall in love with the results while making a healthy choice that supports the fight against breast cancer!

Breast Cancer: What the Medical Professionals Don’t Talk About

 

WARNING! This is NOT just “another” story for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Read on to learn something most people and medical professionals don’t know or talk about…

Let’s face it, if you’re a man you probably tune all the “pink stuff” this month right out!  But what if the pink ribbon had a little BLUE in it? Then would you notice it? Do men even know they have breast tissue? And if so, how many of you really DO anything with this awareness?

Ask yourself these questions and see how educated you really are?

(Questions below should be answered by both men and women);

  • Do you know or talk about a family history of ALL cancers for both genders?
  • Do you know that men can be diagnosed with breast cancer?
  • Do you (men and women) perform a self breast exam once a month?
  • Have you changed or improved your diet or nutritional intake to increase prevention?
  • Do you fit in at least 3-5 hours of exercise a week?
  • How much alcohol is “ok” to consume if you’re concerned about breast cancer?
  • Has anyone in your family (men and women) been tested for the BRCA (breast cancer susceptibility gene) mutation?
  • If you have family members (with or without a gene mutation) with Prostate, Ovarian, Melanoma, Pancreatic and other cancers does this increase your risk of Breast Cancer?
  • Does your family doctor, gynecologist or urologist talk to you about your risks due to a family history of cancer(s)?
  • Does your doctor perform a routine breast exam if you’re a man? If not, who is checking you for this if you do have a family history?
  • Can a man have a mammogram?
  • Do men have breasts?

 

Most of us know the stats on breast cancer in women (1 in 8 women will be diagnosed) but do you know;

  • This year it is projected that over 2,240 new cases of male breast cancer will be diagnosed and over 400 men will die from the disease.
  • 50% of the worlds BRCA (breast cancer susceptibility gene) carriers are male and there is an increased risk from 1% closer to 6% of a diagnosis as a male if a carrier of the BRCA gene.
  • Percentage fatality rate is often higher for men diagnosed with breast cancer as usually no one is checking, men don’t notice the symptoms, men are not aware they can be diagnosed with breast cancer and are not screened on a regular basis with the current insurance regulations.
  • Male breast cancer treatment consist of mastectomy due to limited amount of tissue and often followed with some or all; radiation therapy, chemo therapy and hormone therapy

This October, we need to stretch the boundaries of breast cancer awareness to include men and really help educate. Let’s add some blue to the pink and help men to learn they too can be affected by this disease. Men need to know they do have breasts and what their risk factors are. Women need to be informed not just for themselves, their sisters or daughters but for their husbands, brothers and sons. Let’s show what awareness is really all about and educate all genders.

What’s Your Dosha?

Filed Under: Announcements & News,General Wellness & Wellbeing,Herbs at 2:22 pm | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

 

The ancient Hindu practice of Ayurvedic medicine believes that everything in the universe is made up of five elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether (space.) These elements combine to form the three doshas, or metabolic types, that are represented in the human body in several different forms. For instance, bones and teeth are associated with earth, blood and lymph with water, metabolism with fire, oxygen with air, and ether with the spaces found between matter, which are often represented by vibration or sound.

So, what’s your dosha? Read on to find out!

Vata

People who exhibit the physical characteristics of a vata are either very tall or very short with a slight physique. Thin is in as far as vatas go, as they often have thin skin, hair, mouths and necks. A classic vata face is usually long and angular, often with an underdeveloped chin, pale eyes and a small, narrow nose. A vata’s teeth are irregular or protruding, set in receding gums. And while the voice is weak, low or cracked, vatas tend to be motormouths, with extremely fast speech patterns. Vatas have restless minds, tend to overanalyze and have weak memories. They are what most of us think of when we hear the phrase “the sensitive type” and are likely to be artistic, creative and susceptible to many forms of overindulgence.

Pitta:

Pittas are more of the fiery type. They can be loud, authoritative and convincing debaters. Physically they have soft, warm skin that sweats easily and tends to burn in the sun. Reddish hair that prematurely grays is another hallmark of the pitta, who also possesses a heart-shaped face, a pointed chin and nose and yellowish teeth. Pittas have are classic intellectuals and boast great organizational skills. Most pittas are fast learners and have excellent memories. And it’s precisely because of those selectively excellent memories that you never want to cross one. Pittas can be quick to anger, argumentative and are jealous and aggressive by nature.

Kapha:

The prototypical strapping kapha has a thick, broad frame and large limbs that pairs nicely with a deep, resonant voice. A kapha’s skin is usually oily and pale, but they make up for that with shocks of dark, wavy hair and a full face. Kapha’s can be easily recognized by their tree trunk-like neck, rounded nose, light eyes, large mouth and huge teeth. Kaphas are often calm, logical and considerate. Stable and patient, they are slow to anger and often calm down quickly on the rare occasions when they do let their emotions get the better of them. More passive by nature, kaphas can come off as lazy and ummotivated – even dull — to those who don’t know them. But don’t let their easygoing disposition fool you, kaphas have a naturally strong sex drive.

Vitamin D Deficiency Could Double Alzheimer’s Risk

Filed Under: Announcements & News,Health Concerns & Ailments,Vitamins and Minerals at 11:21 am | By: Jessica Justh, Senior Editor

In the largest study of its kind, researchers revealed that in older people, not getting enough vitamin D may double the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The study was released August. 6, 2014, online issue of Neurology.

The study evaluated blood levels of vitamin D, which includes vitamin D from food, supplements and sun exposure. Dietary vitamin D is found in fatty fish such as salmon, tuna or mackerel and milk, eggs and cheese.

“We expected to find an association between low vitamin D levels and the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, but the results were surprising—we actually found that the association was twice as strong as we anticipated,” said study author David J. Llewellyn, PhD, of the University of Exeter Medical School in the United Kingdom.

The study evaluated 1,658 healthy people over the age of 65 without dementia and had their vitamin D blood levels tested. After an average of six years, 171 participants developed dementia and 102 had Alzheimer’s disease.

The results revealed people with low levels of vitamin D had a 53-percent increased risk of developing dementia and those who were severely deficient had a 125-percent increased risk compared to participants with normal levels of vitamin D.

Those with lower levels of vitamin D were nearly 70 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and those who had severe deficiency were over 120 percent more likely to develop the disease.

The results remained the same after researchers adjusted for other factors that could affect risk of dementia, such as smoking, alcohol consumption and education.

Herb Pharm – Liquid Herbal Extracts From “Seed to Shelf”

Since 1979, Herb Pharm has been emphasizing the necessity of using the best quality organically cultivated and sustainably wild crafted herbs to produce safe and effective herbal extracts. By growing their own herbs and having such a close liaison between their manufacturing department and farm, they are able to optimize cultivation techniques, time of harvest, and handling of herbs far better than by sourcing these herbs from other growers. It is on Herb Pharm’s certified organic herb farm and plant sanctuary where their quality comes to life and begins to grow.
