Coming Clean!

I-Am-SorryI’M COMING CLEAN!
I was addicted to and sold toxic substances!
VICTORIA’S SECRET BATH & BODY WORKS yummy smelling bath lotions! I loved that stuff and still have it (It’s going in the trash!). My friends and daughter will tell you I had that stuff everywhere. even in the center console of my car, my purse etc. It was an addiction because it smells so delicious. These products and many others contain PARABEN which absorb in your skin and mimic estrogen, causing cancer.

I worked at Victoria’s Secret 15 years and wore it daily! I wore the under-wire push-up bras too which block the lymphatic system. This is not a myth, it is real. We have so much of this being sold and breast cancer is just sky rocketing. I sold all of this and contributed to the problem. We have to educate to eradicate! The beauty industry will have to change but we are a part of that change. So don’t just read this, take action, share this information privately or publicly. Research more to see if I am correct. Don’t think, it can’t happen to you. I am not trying to scare you, I am trying to prevent a fearful experience.
Please don’t criticize the women who do continue using the products or working for the companies that sell them. Change is never easy, be kind, patient, take action with respect. Do share the info though. Be the change. We are in a nation where breasts have been made a big deal, even in breast cancer awareness month they advertise with sexual connotations about the woman’s anatomy for good marketing.

Please Read the labels. If it has—> Methyl paraben,Propyl paraben, Isobutyl paraben, Ethyl paraben, Butyl paraben, E216

This is more probable of why breast cancer is on the rise ladies, every one on the phone blames genetics and diet, I think we JUST LOVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS and the combination of many things that we can control is killing us. Parabens, vitamin D deficiency, tight fitting bras/ underwire compromising adequate lymph drainage, which puts you at risk to the development of breast cancer or just poor health. Now add un-addressed emotional pain and poor diet,not enough exercise and not drinking enough water and you’ve got the perfect storm just rising up, waiting to happen.

Think back to what you have been doing in your life, your habits. I talk to many panicky women who are diagnosed with breast cancer and then they immediately begin juicing daily thinking this is the fix all and I learned something from them, many have iron deficiency and are underweight. I talk to them on the phone and the question they always ask me first because it is the least expensive “Fix it solution in their head ” So Shannon, what is your diet like?” Diet did NOT cause my problem and it did not cure me”. I just eat as organic and healthy as possible but I will do gentle detoxes every now and then. You can go into a book store and find hundreds of books on cancer diets. I believe that it works for some but to be stage 4 and rely on that when your life is in danger…I would think about everything and consider all options.

I talk to so many women stricken with breast cancer who are terrified to deviate from juicing and will never eat a balanced meal again. Many are taking the drug tamoxfin or other estrogen blockers as well. I am not knocking the juicing, I am asking you to evaluate your entire situation.
Not everyone is likely to reverse cancer with just juicing (I know for a fact because I get the calls of sadness and disappointment) They blame themselves, they panic and think there is no plan B or C. I never juiced, I do eat my veggies and fruits and lots of them! Juicing stressed me. I must chew my food and I love to cook! So I will share new recipes for others in the same boat as me.

Please try to address these other things ladies. It actually makes sense. Keep juicing if you like but do not ignore the other things that can contribute besides your diet.

I stopped using paraben products, increased sunshine to get my vitamin D level up, I started swimming and jump rope. I improved my diet by 25% I never really ate bad except for a short period of time eating healthy choice meals and starbucks. Just about a year though. I eat a balanced organic gluten free diet, my life is stress free compared to three years ago. I also ditched tight-fitting under-wire bras and switched to comfy stretch lace, Is this too much information? I am pretty sure ladies will appreciate it and it could help! Just save the under-wire push up for a very special occasion.

PS include Laughter in your life no matter how grim life feels, rent movies and find a reason to laugh, it is excellent for the immune system.
I rarely ask for people to share… but I am thinking this one could make a difference, maybe save lives! Sharing this one is actually caring about women (even if it is in a blog or private email, we need to just get the word out ) Copy the entire post first and paste when you share.
