Following the news in 2014 that former “Good Morning America” host Joan Lunden had announced she had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer just after a mammogram gave her a clean bill of health, mammograms have received bad press once again.
Two recent studies have looked into the effectiveness of mammogram screening. The first study, published in the April 2014 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association, was conducted by Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. It examined five decades of data. (1) The second study involved 1.8 million Norwegian women diagnosed with breast cancer between 1987 and 2010 and was published in the March 2014 issue of The European Journal of Public Health. (2)
The researchers have since suggested that there is a need for a more personalized approach to breast cancer screening, particularly in regards to younger women.
At the Budwig Center, breast cancer is probably one of the most common types of cancer we see. This fact is very disheartening, but the good news is the women who visit our clinic are becoming more and more aware in regards to prevention and early diagnosis.
One of the first things we mention at the Budwig Center is for women to stop using the standard bra. In a landmark study of 152 participates the risk factors for breast cancer as it relates to bra-wearing habits was researched. The study concluded: “wearing a bra for a long period of time was a significant risk factor for breast cancer, which is in agreement with a previous study that found that premenopausal women who did not wear a bra had half the risk of developing the disease compared to those who wore it.”
Because the standard bra presses into the body, it restricts the natural movement of the lymphatic system, which is the “rubbish disposal” system of the body. When toxins accumulate in the lymph system and are trapped in the fatty tissue areas of the breast, this is a precursor to breast cancer. We believe that toxins are the main contributor to cancer; therefore the body needs to be allowed to detoxify daily.
Wearing a regular bra, with its restrictive underwire, is a serious hindrance to this natural function. We encourage woman of all ages with cancer or not, to quickly discard the standard bra and use only a “sports type” bra that can provide a softer, less restrictive type of support. Choose a sports type bra made of natural fibers that do not have toxic materials. And when possible wear no bra at all.
In our Free Budwig Guide found on our home page, www.budwigcenter.com, we provide clear and precise information about how to follow the Budwig protocol. A healthy diet, proper exercise, and healthy relationships will undoubtedly make a difference when trying to prevent any serious illness.
Something that will also help pump out the toxins from the lymphatic system is a rebounder, which activates the lymph as you gently move up and down. Now on the market, there are new mini trampoline/rebounders that use elastic bungee cords instead of springs. These protect and support ligaments while assisting the user in flushing the lymphatic system. Each of our patient apartments at the Budwig Center is equipped with this new type of trampoline for patients to use during their stay. Not just women, but in fact, everyone can benefit from enjoying a few minutes daily on the rebounder to keep the lymph system activated and to move out the toxins from our body.
To assist women in early detection, we encourage ultrasounds and thermography testing. Although these types of tests do not tell you if the mass found is malignant, they will tell you if there is something abnormal or suspicious. These tests are especially beneficial for younger women and ones that don’t have symptoms but are concerned with the health of their breasts.
When a patient comes to the Budwig Center clinic with the aim of treating a cancer diagnosis, they first have a one on one consult with a medical doctor who will review their medical reports with them and then plan their personalized treatment program accordingly. Treatment may consist of the use of medical devices like local hyperthermia sessions on the breast. A Vega Test and GSR scan will be done to assess the “big picture” of how their body systems are currently functioning and identify any factors contributing to cancer in a patient’s body. Natural remedies are prescribed to each patient based on these personalized test results. In addition, we use a unique device that sends frequencies to the body that not only aids the body in destroying viruses but also in the removal of pathogens and other toxins.
We agree with many in the medical community that now more than ever a more personalized approach to breast cancer screening and treatment is imperative. Our goal at the Budwig Center is to not only provide natural therapies and remedies but also to arm all those who come through our doors with the education they need to live a healthier life.
