Lower Your Breast Cancer Risk with Sunshine
If there is something that haunts millions of women, it is the fear of breast cancer. This diagnosis seems to be touching every family these days.
Fear No More
The reasons for breast cancer are many. Genetics is not one of them. Why would we be genetically programmed to develop cancer? All cancer comes from poor nutrition and a toxic environment. Nixon declared the war on cancer almost 50 years ago. Trillions wasted.
The cause is the cure.
New research is pointing to an easy and FREE way to decrease your risk of breast cancer, literally right before your eyes.
The Power of the Sun
You see, for millions of years our ancestors went to sleep with the sundown and awoke with the sunrise. Then, they spent the day from morning until dusk out in the sunshine! By the way, they were also naked.
Sunshine does many things that science is just starting to understand. Everyone knows vitamin D is formed in the skin after sun exposure. Now, researchers have found that high levels of vitamin D equals lower risk of breast cancer. In fact, a 2017 study demonstrated an 800% higher risk of breast cancer in women with the lowest levels of vitamin D. (1)
If you already have breast cancer, higher vitamin D means a longer survival. (2)
How Sunshine Lowers Breast Cancer Risk
Sunshine charges up every cell in our body. Cells contain tiny fuel factories called mitochondria. The little gems produce energy. But it takes energy to make energy. This original energy is sunshine.
The sun also creates melatonin, the brain hormone that controls all rhythms and hormones in the body. Sunshine creates, artificial light destroys, so go to sleep at sundown for your best health.
The sun controls insulin function. Better insulin function, lower cancer risk.
Finally, sunshine makes vitamin D. This vitamin activates pathways and enzymes that prevent cancer and shuts off enzymes that can stimulate cancer growth.
Crank Up your Vitamin D
There are a few ways to increase your vitamin D levels. But first, get your level checked. The best lab test for vitamin D is by blood and it is called 25 hydroxy-vitamin D. Ask your doctor for help on this one.
3 ways to increase vitamin D include:
- Sunshine. Full body sunshine is key. Sunburn bad, sunshine good. Start with getting morning sun. In the morning, UVA and UVB levels are low, but the other energies from the sun are high and protect you from the dangers of UVA and UVB from noontime exposure. UVA and UVB have a purpose and that is why are bodies are designed to accept those energies and make vitamin D from them. But get morning, noon, and early evening sun. 10-15 minutes per session.
- Food. Eggs, fish, and meat all contain vitamin D. Mushrooms also contain a form of vitamin D. Make sure meat and eggs come from pasture-raised animals and your seafood is wild. Mushrooms must be organic.
- Supplements. I only recommend vitamin D supplements for those who can’t get enough sun. Usually 5000 IU per day can get your 25 hydroxy-vitamin D levels above 50. I recommend you also take a quality multivitamin and extra vitamin K2. K2 keeps calcium in the bones and out of the arteries. Check out our Super K.
Don’t be afraid of the sun. The sun was here before us and we are built to harness its power. If you want to use sunscreen during prolonged exposure, choose an organic option without harmful ingredients. We suggest Badger brand.
