Breast cancer, what foods may help?
Breast cancer awareness month is the perfect time to brush up on the facts and learn everything you can to limit your chances of developing cancer.
Cancer is not caused by any factor, and there is no sure way of preventing it, but there are some things you can do that are thought to severely limit your chances.
Having a healthy lifestyle, exercising regularly and keeping down your stress levels are all thought to reduce the risk.
Scientists believe that 30 to 40 per cent of cases could have been prevented by a change in diet.
If what we put on our stomachs can make us safer, than it is certainly a small change that could make a big difference.
Superfoods are thought to be great at fighting cancer, owing in part to a compound called sulforaphane. This composite is actually thought to prohibit the spread of tumours.
These can be found in vegetables like broccoli, as well as in organic supplements which also provide a varied and rich complement of essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
This fruit is thought to specifically tackle breast cancer, as well as other types of the illness.
"Hormone dependent cancers such as breast cancer are commonly treated with aromatase inhibitors, which block this enzyme," writes Dr. Nalini Chilkov.
The organic seed oil is also rich in anti-inflammatory properties which are thought to be particularly preventative.
Flax seed oil
Rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, flax seed oil also has anti-inflammatory and healing assets.
"Most research regarding flax's anti-cancer properties has been done in mice or in-vitro cell cultures, but what it shows could be profound: in one study, according to the American Cancer Society, the lignans found in flax slowed the movement and "stickiness" of breast cancer cells, causing it to spread more slowly in a cell culture simulation," asserts The Huffington Post Healthy Living.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
