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.

You don’t have to be lonely – there is a cure

It is the month of love, and as relationships are brought to the fore, it can become apparent just how lonely you feel.
Loneliness reportedly affects around 1 in 10 South Africans, both young and old. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it is affecting increasingly more, and in some ways has become an epidemic on its own.

Is sex taking over your life?

Is sex taking over your life?

Although sex is a powerful bond in a healthy relationship, it has also sadly often become destructive. What is it about sex that can bring out such extremes as addition or abuse?  Being mindful of the impact that sex can have on both body and mind is an important foundation for nurturing your own sexuality.
