How to reduce breast cancer risk
One of the first steps in protecting the health of womens breasts is to recognize the symptoms and risk factors of hormonal imbalance, and take action to reverse them. According to the experts, almost all risk factors associated with breast cancer are directly or indirectly linked to an excess of estrogen that is not sufficiently balanced with natural progesterone in the bodies accustomed way. A growing number of medical experts believe that correcting this fundamental imbalance is at the heart of preventing and treating breast cancer.
STEP 1: Determine the symptoms of imbalance
Many women have unknowingly had hormonal imbalance for years. Signs and symptoms include unwanted weight gain, slow metabolism, belly fat, sugar cravings, sleep disturbances, stress and anxiety.
STEP 2: Use a Hormone Detection Kit to test for hidden imbalances
MRC provides saliva testing through one of the most reputable laboratories in the country to help detect and correct hormone imbalances.
STEP 3: Balance hormones and maintain a healthy weight to beat breast cancer
By detecting and correcting hormone imbalances, MRC’s Body in Balance program can help people lose and reach their ideal weight.
