Over the past few months I have been asked many times if I know of a natural substitute for Tamoxifen. I apologize that it has taken me so long to write this post, but it has required extensive research and obtaining the knowledge of many experts. Many are not convinced that Tamoxifen is the wonder drug it is made out to be. I am one of those people. However, it is not my opinion that matters. My job is to give you information and options, not opinions. There are many others who believe that Tamoxifen is a beneficial drug. You and you alone can decide what is best for you, for your needs and concerns.

Exercise and maintaining a healthy weight play a crucial role in cancer prevention. Exercise helps to reduce excess estrogen from the body and being overweight boosts the body’s estrogen levels. Obesity increases the body’s insulin levels and insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) that have a growth promoting effect on cells, especially on cancerous cells. Further, recent studies have proven that overweight and obese women have higher levels of inflammation, which provides a cancer promoting environment in the body. Try to exercise for at least 30-45 minutes a day. Any exercise is better than none, but a brisk walk or run will give you more protection.
