During October, in Support of National Breast Cancer Awareness, a Portion of All Natural Remedies Product Proceeds Are Being Donated to a Major Charity.For Another Year of Helping to Raise Breast Cancer Awareness
Almost everyone knows someone whose life has been changed forever by the devastating effects of breast cancer - your mother, your sister, your friends... maybe even yourself.
Last year Native Remedies donated $5,000 to the American Cancer Society through our breast cancer awareness program. This year once again, throughout the entire month of October, we will be donating a percentage of our sales to support breast cancer awareness. So while you support your health and the health of your family, you can also help fight the battle against breast cancer.
Because breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women in the United States. With that in mind, Native Remedies believes it is extremely important to contribute to raising prevention awareness on how simple changes to your lifestyle can actually decrease your odds of being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Reduce your risk by adopting certain lifestyle changes
Exercise: Exercise promotes immune system health and lowers estrogen levels. As little as four hours of exercise a week can begin to lower a woman's risk of breast cancer.
Healthy diet: A nutritious, low-fat diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. A high-fat diet increases the risk because fat triggers estrogen production that can fuel tumor growth.
No Smoking: Studies regarding the link between smoking and breast cancer are inconclusive. However, it is well known that smoking causes a number of diseases, including cancer.
Reduce alcohol consumption: Studies have shown that even one or two drinks a day can slightly increase the risk of breast cancer. The more drinks consumed, the higher the risk.
Oral Contraceptives: Studies have shown that women under 35 who have been using birth control pills for more than ten years are at an increased risk of breast cancer.
Early diagnosis to increase survival risk
Assess family risk factors. A family history of breast cancer can elevate your risk. If you have a grandmother, mother, sister, or daughter who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, it is recommended to have a yearly mammogram starting at age 35.
Perform a monthly breast self-exam. Things to look for include changes in breast tissue, size, a lump, dimpling or puckering, or nipple discharge. If you discover a lump in your breast or changes in breast tissue, see your physician immediately. However, 8 out of 10 lumps are benign, and not cancerous.
Prevention is essential. Mammograms are one of the most important early diagnosis tools available. Women 40 years and older should have a mammogram every one or two years, depending on what your doctor recommends.
