Win the Fight, Protect Against Breast Cancer, & Maximize Your Cancer Treatments
Cancer isn't just a diagnosis; it's an emotional tornado that tries to destroy everything in its path. It's a test of faith and resilience and is a rollercoaster-like journey that changes daily.
Every person touched by cancer has a story filled with courage and determination to overcome fear. It's more than cells that have gone rogue. The reality is that your body is an amazing healing machine, and your resilience will help you face the challenges when armed with the appropriate information. NOW, you have us walking alongside you to help you reclaim your health. While each journey is personal and unique, understanding your options is your superpower.
Approximately 80% of women being treated for breast cancer take at least one dietary supplement. Still, sadly, most are unaware that the supplements they're taking may interact with hormonal therapy medicines. Or, if you're still using typical store-bought nutritional supplements from large box stores or chain drugstores, you could be taking a huge risk as most are sourced from China, where there is no regulation. Many contain sugars, talc, carnauba car wax, or heavy metals that can wreak havoc on kidney and liver health.
About Dietary Supplements
Dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, botanicals, amino acids, herbal preparations, omega-3 three fatty acids, teas (such as turmeric), CBD, and any vitamins or minerals thrown into designer waters or hydration/sports drinks.
People take dietary supplements for all sorts of reasons with different expectations. Research shows that approximately 70% of cancer patients take at least one supplement.
It’s essential to know a few things. Supplementing with the right supplements, naturally sourced, purified, tested for toxic ingredients, and in clinical doses proven to work, can be your best ally. However, if you take any old supplement and ignore dosage suggestions, supplement usage can backfire and do more harm than good and even damage your overworked liver that you need to be working optimally now more than ever.
FIRST: Most typical dietary supplements are not regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), nor are their effectiveness, safety, or purity.
SECOND: Most typical nutritional supplements are manufactured outside the US and sold by foreign companies, so you rarely see or hear from the owners. These anonymous companies put tons of money into marketing instead of what's in their product.
This also means that this lack of regulation means that you have no guarantee that the supplement you're buying is pure, meaning that it contains only what's on the label and is free of preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, and other unidentifiable ingredients. Or that the supplement you take has the exact amount of nutrients, herbs, or ingredients that the label says it contains, which is why most don't work.
THIRD: Some dietary supplements can interfere with breast cancer treatment and prescription medicines. Supplements can't always be safely taken along with prescription medication. Some supplements can change how medications and radiation work in your body and may make the treatments less effective. For example, soy protein, red clover, and St. John's wort may interfere with how tamoxifen works in your body.
Today's nutritional supplements include mushrooms, gummies containing carnauba car wax, other non-essential fillers, and unknown ingredients that can interact with your treatment/medication. To avoid interactions, it's essential to speak with your doctor about any dietary supplements, powders, teas, or trendy waters and drinks.
Many women treated for breast cancer gain weight during treatment, which can increase the risk of breast cancer coming back (recurrence). Following the LynFit Quick Keto Metabolic Reset Plan is your best defense, especially when followed as a lifestyle, NOT a "when you feel like it" diet. Once you've been diagnosed, your life depends on it now more than ever.
Quick Keto is a cleaner version of the popular Mediterranean diet that targets belly fat, making it easier to burn off. It is a TOP priority since excess belly fat increases estrogen and melting cell growth. Belly fat has been linked with the development of various cancers, including breast cancer, which is why it's so important to focus on burning it off via diet and exercise.
Most people think the Quick Keto Metabolic Reset is just another trendy way to lose weight, but they don't realize that it is the cleanest, healthiest, and most effective way anyone can eat and nourish their bodies. Whether they want to lose weight, melt off belly fat, or as a cancer defense or preventive lifestyle that includes a vital risk factor for all diseases, aging, and aches and pains.
Now that you know what to eat to protect yourself against the ravages of cancer, let's get back to the supplements.
Did you know LynFit supplements are gluten, soy, and preservative-free and free of fillers or additives that can interfere with treatments, starting by regulating blood sugar and hormones?
These are the “special” nutrients every woman over 35 should take, especially if you're undergoing cancer treatment. In addition to the nutritional supplements in the Quick Keto Metabolic Reset, you should add the following for breast cancer.
Vitamin D: LynFit Vitamin D3 Boost is pure, preservative, gluten, and soy-free. It does not contain any fillers and is easier to digest and assimilate by your body, so you don't need to take excessively high levels for it to work. Your next blood test will prove it! Vitamin D protects bone health and immunity.
Melatonin: LynFit Lean Sleep is THE BEST antioxidant on the planet. It won't hyper-stimulate your immune system, which is vital when being treated for cancer. It helps improve sleep quality and protect immunity. Most don't realize that melatonin modulates brown fat, meaning it helps burn belly fat, which rebalances critical hormones before, during, and after cancer treatments.
Omega 3: Our body's ability to fight disease, stay healthy, and maintain a healthy weight depends on how well we care for ourselves and provide it with the specific nutrients it needs daily. Taking LynFit Pure Omega 3 daily makes it easy to protect against killers like cancer, heart disease, weight gain, energy, and memory loss, in addition to hair, skin, and nail health, all of which are directly related to essential omega 3 fatty acid intake.
What this means for you...
Suppose you are currently being treated for breast cancer or have completed treatment and are considering taking dietary supplements. In that case, you must talk to your doctor, and if you need help, provide me with as much information about your health as possible so we can further assist you in making sure that the supplements you're taking do not interfere with your treatments versus trying to do it yourself.
We specialize in oncology/cancer care diets and fitness. We can work with your oncologist and the oncology pharmacist about what you should take, risks, and benefits, including interactions (if there are any) or how to avoid them with your medicines.
You must understand that just because something says it's natural, in an unprocessed state, or seems safe (like juicing, bone broth, mushroom use, or collagen) could affect/spike blood sugar, which also puts you at greater risk of breast and other cancers and can sabotage your cancer treatments.
Whether something is natural or synthetic isn't the most crucial question. The most important questions are:
- How will this supplement help me and benefit my health?
- Is it safe?
- Will it interact with any other medications or treatments I am receiving?
- Am I taking these nutrients, vitamins, minerals, or botanicals already in another form?
- Does it have consistent and accurate suggested usage and or dose info?
- Is it free of contaminants, preservatives, fillers, added sugars, carbs, or other ingredients that include, but are not limited to, vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, macro or micronutrients, fibers, etc.?
It’s also important to note that most doctors, oncologists (surgical oncologists), cancer care nutritionists, and dietitians recommend getting MOST of the nutrients you need from food. Fill in the gaps with supplements and pay close attention to nutrients you need more or cannot reach your recommended daily intake levels due to lack of appetite, activity, or feeling sick from cancer treatments.
The macro and micronutrients in LynFit supplements are absorbed more efficiently than food that relies on the health of your microbiome/digestion, which can be problematic from cancer treatments. This is why taking the right supplements can work like liquid IV because they are absorbed easier and utilized by the body and can help your body assimilate the micronutrients from whole foods, which is a big plus.
Your body handles supplements like it handles medication, and when you take the right ones in specific doses consistently, it can work as effectively.
You can never replace the power of nature, which provides and packages all of the best and purest nutrients into a convenient, easy-to-take, affordable matrix that guarantees your body gets the nutrients it needs in proper amounts and works better than foodstuffs.
Every nutritional supplement we make is inspired by nature and purified and perfected by LynFit. Prebiotic fiber keeps your system cleansed and detoxed safely without stripping essential nutrients or spiking blood sugar levels. Natural botanicals, phytonutrients, probiotics, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging agents provide everything your body needs and nothing it doesn't.
As a cancer survivor, I take specific supplements every day proactively. However, I still get my nine-plus servings of vegetables (particularly leafy greens) to avoid interfering with my thyroid or spiking blood sugar levels. I have three servings of lean protein daily, which includes one LynFit Natural Whey Protein Shake, one LynFit Vegan Protein Shake, one serving of fish (I rotate white fish and salmon), and the occasional small serving of turkey breast made into a delicious but healthy meatball for a balanced, holistic approach.
If you're serious about maximizing your cancer treatments or protecting against cancer, cleaning up your diet will always be your best defense, along with adding the right nutritional supplements to balance your nutrition. You'll supercharge the health effects safely if you take them as suggested, no more or less. STOP using non-LynFit supplements to avoid overdosing or interfering with cancer treatments.
Rather than avoiding supplements altogether or working off the information found on the internet (most of which is inaccurate or outdated) or from well-wishing family or friends, let us help you!
The best defense is your offense, and a strategic nutrition and supplement plan works best! Email me if you need help putting your cancer care game plan together. I'm happy to help you WIN THE FIGHT! We are stronger together!🥊💪
