Marnie's 14 Breast Cancer
Reduction Tips

BY MARNIE CLARK - Breast Cancer Coach

Hi, my name is Marnie Clark and I am a Breast Cancer Coach. I have been doing this for a long time. I have 20 years of experience in natural medicine. I am delving into the research on breast cancer every single day. I talk with and coach women going through breast cancer every day, and I went through breast cancer myself in 2004. I also co-led a breast cancer support group for two years.

Over the years I have gathered up the evidence and compiled this list of my top 14 tips to reduce your risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Each one of the 14 items listed here is covered in greater detail in my course - Toxic Free Me . I created Toxic Free Me to help women either going through breast cancer or looking to avoid it. This is a very brief discussion as to how each of these items can help to keep you well and/or help you to heal if you have a breast cancer diagnosis.

1. Eat Real Food Research [1] [2] shows that a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables (and yes, they are much better if they are organic), radically reduces your breast cancer risk.

2. Improve Your Immune System - stress and other factors negatively impact the immune system, so keeping it strong and healthy is something we should all strive to be doing. Be sure to work with a naturopath, a herbalist, or an integrative oncologist to discover the best ways of boosting your immunity.

3. Reduce Your Viral Load - viruses like Epstein Barr, long COVID and other opportunistic viruses reduce your body’s capacity to kill cancer cells. It’s important to know how to effectively deal with viruses using natural medicine.

4. Take Awesome Supplements - specific vitamins and supplements have the ability to help you get/stay well. I have a list of them on my website for more information - Marnie’s Must-Have Supplements for Breast Health 

5. Detox Your Personal Care Products and Cleaning Products - this is one of the most insidious ways that hormone-disrupting chemicals get into your body. If you are using the average body lotion, deodorant, moisturizer or cleaning products that you obtained from the grocery store,

chances are you are slathering on a cocktail of

chemicals that can put you at a higher risk for cancer.

Check out every single ingredient you put on your body.

There are phone apps and websites that will help you do this.

6. Use Essential Oils Daily - the daily use of high quality

essential oils can vastly improve your breast health.

There are hundreds of studies showing how beneficial

certain essential oils are against cancer processes.

While we cannot say that essential oils (or anything

else listed here) can cure or treat cancer, it certainly

does not hurt you to use them (and use your Breast

Balm daily!).

7. Cleansing - knowing how to effectively cleanse your

inner body is of paramount importance these days, in

our increasingly toxic world. Knowing how to properly

do a liver cleanse, a colon cleanse, and a kidney cleanse

on a regular basis is going to put you miles ahead.

We need to dump those toxins - our bodies are very

good at doing this for the most part, however, we all

need help with this because of our toxic environment

which is putting us at a higher risk for breast cancer.

8. Learn How to Effectively Deal with Stress - as I mentioned above, stress is definitely implicated in many illnesses. Whether you choose meditation, prayer, Emotional Freedom Technique, massage - or a combination of all - make sure that you see to your emotional health. This is as important as anything else on this list.

9. Drink Clean Water and Hydrate - you absolutely do need to filter your drinking water, especially if it’s city-derived. Make sure your water is as clean as it can be, because your body is 75-80% water. Most of us are walking around completely dehydrated and this causes huge problems for our health, especially as we age.

10. Move Your Body - we have several studies [3] [4] that indicate that just a few hours of exercise per week radically reduces breast cancer risk. Other studies have indicated exercise helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and other health issues, so let’s get out there and move - whether it’s walking, bicycle riding, golf, tennis, dancing - whatever you love to do, make time for it!

11. Intermittent Fasting - when you are not eating, your body has a chance to do many other things like undergo repairs, mend damaged DNA, improve your immune system, reset hormones, etc. Just a simple 13-hour fast, the bulk of which can be done in your sleep, has been shown to reduce risk of breast cancer recurrence in breast cancer survivors.

12. See To Your Emotional Health - this is often put on the back burner in favour of so many other things that seem more important, but if you are not living a joyful and contented life, if you feel like you are not living your purpose

or your passion, this absolutely can increase your cancer risk. I counsel my clients to look after their emotional health as if it were their actual job. It’s that important. If you are living with a toxic partner, or feeling like you’re backed into a corner you can’t escape from, you are effectively sending a “die” message to the cells of your body. Get yourself out of those situations, however you can.

13. Electromagnetic Frequency Detox - we have so many devices in our homes now that emit harmful EMFs and these can be impacting our health in a hugely negative way. There are many ways to protect yourself from EMFs, and I would suggest you find out how to go about doing that as a matter of high priority.

14. Energy Healing - balancing your body’s energy field may seem rather woo-woo and out there but this is cutting edge stuff and is increasingly being spoken about and utilized as a method for healing current diseases and avoiding others. We are energetic beings, the Universe and everything in it is made from energy. Energy practices like Reiki and Therapeutic Touch can be accessed quite easily these days, and they are quite beneficial. I also recommend obtaining your own biofrequency device that can read your energetic field using a quantum sensor. The device has the ability to let you know what is out of balance in your body, such as immunity, hormones, chakras, meridians, mental health (and so much more) and can be programmed to deliver the frequencies your body needs to help address any imbalances it picks up.

These are some of the most important things you can do to help reduce your risk of breast cancer. It seems like a lot of things, right? But as the old saying goes - “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It’s so true. Better to look after yourself now and avoid hearing those words “I’m sorry but you have breast cancer.”
