Estrogenic influences can be significantly reduced by avoiding foods such as soy-based products and unsaturated fats, eating enough protein to optimize liver estrogen removal, and using elements such as volume-forming foods (raw carrots, etc.) potatoes and milk, for example) which stimulate intestinal action and prevent the reabsorption of estrogen through the gut.
Avoiding hypothyroidism is essential to preventing chronic retention or the formation of too much estrogen.
Some studies have shown that dietary starch, rather than fat, is associated with breast cancer.
Starch strongly stimulates insulin secretion and insulin stimulates the formation of estrogen.
Estrogen forms in fat cells under the influence of cortisol, and this formation is suppressed by progesterone and thyroid.
Postmenopausal obesity is associated with increased estrogen and breast cancer.
Prenatal or early life exposure to estrogen, including phytoestrogens, or radiation, or polyunsaturated oils, increases the incidence of breast cancer in adult age.
A protein deficiency before birth or early life results in a lifelong excess of serotonin.
Feeding an excess of tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin, during pregnancy results in hypophysic and breast tumors in the child.
Serotonin, in addition to being closely associated with the effects of oestrogen (e.g., by stimulating prolactin secretion) and polyinsaturated fats, can be metabolized into carcinogens.
Prenatal protein deficiency and an excess of unsaturated oils predisposed to a pattern of development involving hypothyroidism and hyperestrogenia.
Puberty occurs at an earlier age, accompanied by a tendency to gain weight.
Inflammatory processes, for example, “autoimmune diseases” are usually intensified in these conditions. Inflammation itself increases the effects of estrogen and serotonin.
Due to the toxic (carcinogenic and anti-respirational) effects of “essential fatty acids”, which are usually stored in tissues in very large quantities, it is important to avoid stress or hunger which would release fats in the blood.
Estrogen, adrenaline, serotonin and growth hormone, as well as prolonged darkness, increase the release of free fatty acids.
Frequent meals, including some saturated fats such as coconut oil, and a balance of proteins, sugars, and salts, will minimize the release of stored fat.
Demographic trends toward greater obesity and earlier puberty, both of which are associated with a higher risk of breast cancer, suggest the war on cancer is far from over.
In the 19th century, when the incidence of breast cancer was much lower than it is today, puberty usually occurred around age 17.
In countries where breast cancer incidence is low, puberty still occurs in mid to late teens.
People who are 100 years old now usually hit their puberty years later than girls today.
Breast Thermography is a safe, radiation-free assessment tool to help monitor how estrogen is impacting your breast health. Early detection is import, but prevention is the key.
