How To Support Breast Health, Everyday

Oct 16

Aromatase is an enzyme found in increased amounts in fibroids, endometriosis and breast cancer cells. The key to aromatase management is phytochemical complexity from fruits and vegetables. Research has shown plant based chemicals in food inhibit human aromatase. This simple fact helps improve breast health and reduces one’s chance of developing breast cancer. In addition to a plant-based diet, I personally use I3C or DIM (diindolylmethane) to assist in reducing aromatase with my patients.

There are certain genes to be investigated through blood or saliva. These include: MTHFR, CYP 1B1, COMT and GSTP +/-. I feel that the genes load the gun and the environment pulls the trigger. We live in a very toxic world. Toxicity is metabolized through different pathways. Also for consideration are the timing of vulnerability, the influence of multiple chemical exposures and the effect of low dose toxicity.

According to the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research, 2009, more than 50% of cancers have a nutritional component in their etiology. We are talking about organochlorinated pesticides, herbicides including atrazine and glyphosate (Roundup), plastics and plasticizers, fuels, PBDE’s (flame retardants), Dioxin, Teflon, phthalates, air fresheners, cosmetics, personal additives, and heavy metals.

The maker of Tamoxifen and Arimidex is AstraZeneca.  This company is the main sponsor of Breast Cancer awareness month. The joke is their subsidiary company, Syngenta makes Atrazine! This is an herbicide that causes human cancers. You must be kidding me!!!

These are the companies selling both pharmaceuticals and pesticides:

AstraZeneca

Aventis

Dow Chemical

DuPont

Merck

Monsanto

Novartis

Pharmacia

This is Dr. Banks’s nutritional therapy in dealing with estrogen imbalance and how to deal with excess estrogen in the body.

  1. Avoid xenoestrogens and endocrine disruptors

  2. Decrease aromatase by decreasing inflammation

  3. Promote a healthy 2/16 ratio phase 1 estrogen metabolites with diet and supplements

  4. Improve phase 2 liver detoxification increasing glutathione

  5. Promote healthy methylation
