Happy October Sweet Bloomies!

It’s been a beautiful start to the Fall Season here in Encinitas.  We are in full swing here at Bloom with all the Naturopathic Doctors, we’re working hard to keep everyones immune systems nice and high.  If you’re starting to feel a little weakened or run down, please stop by and get a boost – either at the shot bar with an immune boost shot, or with some of our great immune boosting supplements.  Our doctors are always here to answer any questions for you about what to choose.

October is one of our favorite months of the year because it is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I have sat on the board for the Keep a Breast foundation for many years now.   I love the mission of this foundation and their desire to truly teach prevention to a younger audience.  Their “I love boobies” campaign has been huge and has inspired many  - both kids and adults.

This month I have formulated a specialty injectable cocktail.  It’s the healthy breast shot and you can read about it in our specials for this month.

We will be donating 1$ from every healthy breast shot this month to the KAB foundation.
Our focus for this months newsletter is general cancer prevention.  I have asked the doctors here to share their top tips on how to prevent cancer.  We know that the incidence is still on the rise – and more and more we are seeing the connections between environmental toxins, hormone imbalances, stress, and our standard American diet or SAD diet.

My top health tip for preventing cancer is this:  Please get your functional lab testing done, and get it retested on a regular basis.  I cannot tell you how often I see patients here at Bloom who are so vital, and they are eating amazing diets, and they are exercising, doing yoga and meditation and all the great things we know improves our health.

They seem to be a perfect vision of health, but then we get their functional lab results back.  And by functional, I mean lab testing that’s looking really deep – at the little things that start to go wrong before a full blown disease is diagnosed.  So many of these people have organs that are testing very weak, have immune systems testing very low, they have hormones out of balance, and they have major micronutrient deficiencies.  And this is all despite their seemingly fantastic lifestyles.  And if these “little” things keep on building and building – they will soon become big things that are full born diseases, including cancers.

Another common scenario with my patients is to get their lab markers looking great after following a naturopathic health plan – and then a major stressor happens in their life such as a divorce or a death in the family.  They then forget all about taking care of themselves and the stress stakes a toll.  When they finally get around to retesting their labs months or years later – everything can look completely different with many deficiencies and  imbalances.

So my piece of advice for preventing cancer and other chronic diseases – get your functional lab testing done at least every 6 months.  Know your body, and know your deficiencies and imbalances.  You can check out Dr. Brookes and Dr. Orians best cancer prevention tips in this newsletter as well.

You may want to also stop by one of our Detox Saturday events to help clean up your week.

I hope to see you all at Bloom this Fall

Love and Health to you all,

Cancer Prevention

Detox!! I know I wrote about this last month, but seriously; detoxifying is important! It has been reported that only 1 in 10 cancers are related to inherited genes. Up to 80% of cancers are environmentally related! If that doesn't scream "toxic environment" to you, nothing will. Additionally, tumors have been found to contain many environmental toxins upon autopsy. The rise in chronic diseases, especially incidences of cancer, is strongly attributed to the rise in toxic exposure. It is imperative to our health that we do all we can to combat our exposure to help lower our risk and prevent the development of cancers and chronic diseases. So, I write to tell you about detox again, because those are some of the many reasons why I feel so strongly about it.

I recommend giving your body a deep medical cleanse at least once, if not twice, per year. If you have never done one, I highly suggest starting with a 4-week program, then maintaining it with regular two-week tune-ups. I just began our Bloom 360 Program that will be continuing throughout the month of October. You can follow us on Facebook to hear about regular updates and learn more about the process.

When I'm not partaking in a full detox, I still use my liver supporting detox shakes as my morning protein shake. The liver is the most important organ for detoxification in the body, so it is important to support the liver's ability to keep up with our daily exposures. In my book, if you could do only one thing to help prevent cancer, it would be daily liver support. Many root vegetables, herbs such as milk thistle, dandelion and burdock, and supplements that included our Apex ClearVite Shake and/or Terrain drainage formulas for the liver, are all great options to start with. Feel free to email or call with questions about these options, or to schedule an appointment to start your own detox today!

Antioxidants for Cancer Prevention

Free radicals are unstable molecules that can potentially cause harm to the cells of our body, and are known to contribute to the development of many cancers. Antioxidants are molecules that inhibit the activity of free radicals in the body. There has been much laboratory research showing the capacity for these antioxidants to stabilize free radicals and inhibit cancer formation. Some of the more potent antioxidants include vitamins A, C, E (in the form of beta-carotene), lutein, lycopene, selenium, and glutathione.

In addition to cancer prevention, antioxidants can protect us from other diseases that are potentially caused by free radical damage. Some of these include heart disease and strokes, as well as the natural aging process. Antioxidants have also been shown to help in recovery from strenuous training.

Here at Bloom, we analyze the levels of many of these powerful nutrients within our cells so that we can customize supplement plans and IV and shot cocktails to balance and enhance our natural antioxidant levels. In conjunction with a healthy diet rich in a variety of clean fruits, vegetables, and meats, I believe this focus on antioxidants is one of the best ways that we can prevent the development of cancers.
