This is information provided by, Sunfoods, www.sunfood.com PINK RIBBONS & CORPORATE HYPE Guess who’s running the annual National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) and the pink ribbon campaign every October? None other than AstraZeneca, the company that produces the breast cancer drug Arimidex. Don’t believe it? Visit the NBCAM website and note that the Contact Us page puts you directly through to the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation. Sadly, NBCAM focuses on detection rather than prevention—because there’s no profit in prevention. Here at Sunfood, we encourage you to celebrate National Breast HEALTH Awareness Month, rather than National Breast CANCER Awareness Month. Our friend, Joyce Sabotta has a personal story to inspire you to do just that. The Shift from Detection to Prevention: A Story of Rebirth Creator of Healthy Girls Breast Oil, Joyce Sabotta saw right through the pink ribbon hype. After watching her younger sister struggle with breast cancer for six years, she chose to dedicate her life to educating women about breast health. “One night,” Joyce said, “the family had gathered, and as we helped her from hospital bed to chair, she looked at me and she said, ‘Joyce can I come to your house?’ “I said, yes you can come. I knew she couldn’t come because she was too weak. But she smiled because she had a place to go. Later on that evening, she passed. “I believe that was the beginning of Healthy Girls Breast Oil. Her spirit had let go of her physical body but there was so much more to do. I knew I wanted to help women accept and love their bodies.” What Is Healthy Girls Breast Oil? Made of 8 therapeutic oils grown with the highest standards of purity and sustainability, Healthy Girls Breast Oil is designed to be used with loving, lymphatic self-massage. The lymph system’s primary function is to isolate toxins and filter them out of the body. Because lymph fluid moves slowly, inactivity can seriously restrict its flow. Muscle contraction (as in the diaphragm with deep breathing), and manual manipulation (as in massage), are the primary means for our lymph to circulate and drain from the body. Lymphatic self breast massage can reduce tenderness, breast pain, inflammation, lumps, cysts, and fibrocystic breast tissue. It also encourages loving self-care! What People Are Saying… “I am a NUCCA doctor in Ames, Iowa, and have been offering Healthy Girls Breast Oil to my patients, and they love it. I feel confident recommending it to patients because I know it’s safe and effective.” - Barbara, DC “It feels wonderful to do the breast self massage, love the aroma, no greasy feeling and I know I’m giving a fabulous treatment to my breasts.” –Sharon, CMT -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Each oil in Healthy Girls Breast Oil has a specific purpose to work synergistically to improve breast health: Jojoba – Most like the oil in your skin, jojoba has anti-inflammatory properties. Suitable for all skin types, it unclogs pores, stimulates blood circulation and skin elasticity, and helps heal scars. Lemon – With an invigorating scent, lemon is high in the nutrient d-limonene, improves the immune system, and helps with cellulite and lymphatic cleansing. Sweet Orange – Also rich in d-limonene, orange has been extensively studied for its ability to combat tumor growth. It improves the immune system, promotes tissue repair and has an uplifting aroma to reduce depression. Lavender – This restorative, relaxing oil is used for holistic balancing. It aids in relaxing the nerves, relieving headaches, reducing high blood pressure, and improving skin conditions. Geranium – Opening up the liver to discharge toxins, geranium balances skin, circulatory and emotional conditions by helping regenerate tissue and nerves. Frankincense – Helping to strengthen the immune system, frankincense wards off infection and oxygenates cells. Nerolina – This soothing, softening oil helps to balance and detoxify as an antibacterial and antifungal. Marjoram – Known in folklore as “Joy of the Mountains,” marjoram aids to warm the body and ease congestion in tissues which can be a cause of pain. It is calming, relaxing and known to increase longevity. Rose Demascena – Beautiful for the skin, this oil brings a feeling of wellbeing and unconditional love to the body. It also aids in circulation and emotional balance. Using Healthy Girls Breast Oil for lymphatic massage will not just aid in detoxification, it will focus loving energy on your breasts, instead of fear or lack of acceptance. "To me, good health is more than just exercise and diet. It’s really a point of view and a mental attitude you have about yourself." - Albert Schweitzer -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Other Ways to Support Breast Health Mangosteen Powder - Mangosteen fruit has been used for centuries by the people of Southeast Asia to treat an incredible array of ailments. One study found that the phytochemicals known as xanthones found in the rind of mangosteen killed breast cancer cells and inhibited metastasis (spreading) in surrounding lymph tissues.1 Flax Seed – This food contains plant compounds called lignans and omega-3 essential fatty acids which are known to support breast health. A recently published peer review article examined 10 studies, concluding, “flax demonstrates anti-proliferative effects in breast tissue of women at risk of breast cancer and may protect against primary breast cancer. Mortality risk may also be reduced among those living with breast cancer.”2 Overall Diet – Eating GMO-free, pesticide free, organic whole foods is always an excellent strategy to fuel your cells and organs and help you reach peak health. Balance Your Energy and Emotions – Healing practices like yoga, meditation, journaling, or simply taking a walk in nature are wonderful ways to relieve stress. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Increase self-awareness with loving lymphatic self massage.
