Detox & De-stress for Better Breast Health
Each October we are reminded about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. However, maintaining overall breast health and wellness and preventing disease must be a priority every day, all year round. It goes beyond the important monthly self-exams and annual mammograms. We must proactively manage what we put into our bodies and what we take out.
Detoxing and de-stressing are important to holistic wellness. Chemicals and toxins are the primary cause of illness, disease and obesity. Taking care of the kidney and liver, the cleansing organs of the body, is vital to preventing fat accumulation and inefficiency. The body can lose strength and vitality, and the immune system can be compromised.
Here are some things you can do now:
Schedule a Body Treatment at Tranquility. Try our Antioxidant Herbal Mud Body Masque to relieve stress and hydrate and tone the skin. This service is particularly beneficial for eczema, psoriasis and dry skin, which are conditions tied to the immune system.
Eat Better and Exercise More. A larger waist size can increase health risks, according to a study from the American Cancer Society. Waist size strongly correlates to fat tissue, which is the most dangerous kind of fat tissue, say researchers.
Stretch and Get Your Heart Rate Up. Our Yoga & Fitness classes focus on all three elements of physical fitness for optimal health: cardiovascular endurance, strength training and flexibility. Yoga only trims the tummy but reduces stress, strengthens and promotes flexibility.
Eat those antioxidant super foods. Antioxidants help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals that can cause cancer. Blueberries, nuts, kidney beans, artichokes, whole grains, and dark green veggies such as kale, spinach, and broccoli.
