I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

The Breast Cancer Dilemma

Can you prevent it?

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime—a frightening statistic for all women and all men who love one. Chances are you’ve known someone who has had this disease, whether your mother, aunt, sister, friend, or you yourself. While there is yet to be a proven way to cure breast cancer, there are steps you can take to beat the disease by avoiding it altogether.

But you’ve got to act now to reduce your risk tomorrow. Sound intriguing? Keep reading to learn how you can reduce your risk factors for this horrible disease.

Limit Alcohol

Even small amounts of alcohol have been shown to increase one’s risk for developing breast cancer. The more alcohol you consume, the greater your risk. This includes beer, wine, and liquor. Research has shown that drinking more than two bottles of beer, two glasses of wine, or two shots of liquor on a daily basis increases a woman’s chance of developing breast cancer by 41 percent.

If you choose to drink alcohol, limit yourself to one drink a day or three drinks a week.

Lose Weight

Overweight and obese women are at a greater risk for breast cancer. The risk increases for those women who gain weight later in life, after dealing with the changes that occur following menopause. If you are in this category, it’s time to shed those extra pounds. Talk with your doctor about weight-loss strategies through diet and exercise.

Be Physically Active

One way to maintain a healthy weight is physical activity. Moderate to vigorous cardio exercise has been shown to help prevent breast cancer. Each week, aim for at least two and a half hours (150 minutes) of moderate aerobic exercise (brisk walking, bicycling, dancing) or 75 minutes of high intensity aerobic activity (jogging, swimming, jumping rope). Be sure to include strength-training exercises in your routine twice a week.

How much impact can exercise have on your breast cancer risk? One study showed that brisk walking for 75 minutes a week reduced women’s risk of breast cancer by 18 percent. Not bad for a walk in the park every few days.

Don’t Smoke

Along with every other disease known to man, more and more evidence is linking smoking with breast cancer. The risk seems to be higher among premenopausal women. In one study, smokers were at a 16 percent greater risk of developing the disease than non-smokers.

Limit Hormone Therapy

Many women choose hormone therapies to treat their unpleasant menopausal symptoms. However, women who use hormone therapies that combine both estrogens and progestins for longer than three or five years are at an increased risk for breast cancer. If your menopausal symptoms cause discomfort, ask your doctor about non-hormonal options. If you decide the benefits of hormone therapy are worth the risk, use the lowest dose possible for the shortest amount of time.

Avoid Radiation and Pollution

High doses of radiation and exposure to environmental pollutions are additional risks for women. Undergo medical imaging tests only when necessary and stay away from the chemicals and pollution caused by factories and automobiles.

Chemoprevention Drugs

If you’re over the age of 60 and have a high risk for breast cancer (shown through genetic testing and other risk factors), certain drugs have been shown helpful for lowering your risk. Known as chemoprevention drugs, they include tamoxifen, exemestane, and raloxifene. Talk with your doctor about the benefits and risks of using such medications.

Preventative Surgery

A final option for those few women with an especially high risk for breast cancer is surgery. A preventative mastectomy removes the breasts before cancer develops. This drastic measure reduces a woman’s risk by 97 percent. When absolutely necessary, surgical removal of the ovaries before menopause may reduce a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 50 percent.
