BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

Nov 2, 2015 | Blog

Thebemed Wellness Cafe’

Your immune system is your personal protector – it is designed to recognise and eliminate any threat to your body’s health. This month, with the spotlight on breast cancer, is the perfect time to make lifestyle changes that provide your body with the right support.

JUST DO IT

Eliminate anything that limits your health and wellbeing. Support your body but don’t neglect your mind – resolve to deal with emotional issues like anger, resentment and grief.

Five Healthy Habits for Females

EAT. Ditch sugar and follow a low glycaemic diet. Excess sugar changes the way your body metabolises oestrogen. Oestrogen dominance is a risk factor for breast cancer.

BREATHE. Deep breathing is essential. Breathe in and out through your nose to expand the lower lobes of your lungs and activate your ‘rest-and-restore’ nervous system.

SLEEP. Deep, restful sleep zaps stress hormones. Ban your laptop and TV from the bedroom and aim to switch off the bedside light by 9:30 p.m.

EXERCISE. Another great stress buster! Walk briskly for 30 minutes every day or get to the gym for strength training, core building and stretching exercises.

MEDITATE. Set aside 10 minutes a day to sit quietly where you won’t be disturbed, close your eyes and let your mind be soothed and calmed.

It’s safe to say we’ve all been there, you are tired, so you skip making dinner and eat an unhealthy snack instead. You have a night out with friends and skip the gym the next morning. When work piles up, the first thing that suffers is sleep. The problem is, the more often this happens, the more your health is affected.

Cultivating self-respect through gratitude

Cultivating self-respect through gratitude

R.E.S.P.E.C.T! Yes, it’s a well-known song and a word often used when it comes to teaching children how to interact with adults, but there is more to it than just being a catchy tune. Respect is effectively the glue that holds relationships together. It can be defined as “esteem for, or a sense of the worth, or excellence of a person, a personal quality, or ability”.

Nurture your inner child, no matter your age

Nurture your inner child, no matter your age

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.’ A cliché? Yes, but there may just be a dot of truth to it. Everyone knows that play is good for kids. It promotes physical and mental development and provides an opportunity for healthy social interaction. But as kids get older, time for free play gets less, until adulthood, when it just about disappears altogether.

Is addiction ruining your family?

We usually think of addiction as something extreme; associated with drugs, alcohol or substances, but you can become addicted to many different things.
For many years experts believed that only alcohol and certain drugs could lead to addiction.
