    Debunking the Myths About Mammograms With Dr. Robyn Roth

    Debunking the Myths About Mammograms With Dr. Robyn Roth

    Dr. Robyn Roth (AKA @theboobiedocs on Instagram) debunks myths about mammograms and emphasizes the importance of early detection. The discussion covers the impact of breast density on imaging and the need for additional tests. This conversation covers various topics related to breast cancer, including risk factors, genetic testing, high-risk clinics, family planning, lifestyle modifications, overdiagnosis, caregiving, finding purpose, the biopsy experience, researching doctors, and self-advocacy during exams.
     
    The breast cancer risk calculator: https://ibis-risk-calculator.magview.com

    Verify information on social media, especially when it comes to health-related topics. Mammograms play a crucial role in early breast cancer detection and can save lives. Breast density can affect the accuracy of mammograms, and additional imaging may be necessary. Mammograms involve a low dose of radiation that is comparable to other everyday exposures. Knowing your breast cancer risk is important for determining appropriate screening and prevention strategies. Family planning decisions may be influenced by genetic testing results and breast cancer risk. Lifestyle modifications, such as maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, and minimizing stress, can help reduce breast cancer risk. Overdiagnosis and over treatment are important considerations in breast cancer management. Connect with Robyn here: https://www.instagram.com/theboobiedocs

    What to Eat & Not Eat to Prevent Cancer Recurrence With Board Certified Oncology Dietician Alison Tierney

    What to Eat & Not Eat to Prevent Cancer Recurrence With Board Certified Oncology Dietician Alison Tierney

    The BLUEPRINT from Results to Rising details HERE
    _______________________________________________________________________________

    Alison Tierney, a board-certified oncology dietitian and cancer thriver, shares her personal journey with breast cancer and how she empowers others affected by cancer. She discusses the importance of nutrition and lifestyle medicine in reducing treatment side effects, enhancing quality of life, and reducing the risk of recurrence.
     
     Takeaways: Nutrition and lifestyle medicine play a crucial role in reducing treatment side effects, enhancing quality of life, and reducing the risk of cancer recurrence. Fasting during chemotherapy can help reduce treatment side effects and improve quality of life. Soy consumption is beneficial for cancer prevention and management, as it reduces the risk of recurrence and helps manage side effects. Protein can be obtained from various plant-based sources, and a well-planned plant-based diet can provide all the necessary nutrients. A whole food plant-based diet can provide sufficient protein, and vegetarians and vegans in the US often consume more protein than they need. Incorporating unprocessed grains, such as quinoa and brown rice, into meals is beneficial for nutrition. Processed meats and alcohol are known carcinogens and should be avoided or minimized. Supplements should be considered on an individual basis, focusing on addressing deficiencies in the diet. You can find Alison @wholesome.cancer.nutrition on Instagram or on her website www.wholesomellc.com.

Relatable

As a breast cancer survivor I can relate to Jen and her outlook so well! I also love hearing Darren’s perspective. This podcast is great for anyone who has been affected by cancer but also for anyone who needs to be inspired to change their perspective and look for the joy in life!

✨PRICELESS GIFT!✨


Not Today Cancer has been a lifeline for me recently. As an ultra healthy woman, being diagnosed with aggressive, Her2+ breast cancer + the BRCA2 gene, requiring chemo, dbl mastectomy, + ovaries removed, turned my world upside down!

After diagnosis I started binging the podcast daily, soaking in every detail like a sponge. Hearing other women's voices and experiences, plus specialist interviews was exactly what I needed to feel more empowered. I've listened to several of them multiple times!

I sent Jen a message to thank her for her helpful podcast and I was pleasantly surprised with a voice text that took the gift to the next level! I was able to ask her some questions and receive priceless, comforting responses as well as book recommendations. How amazing is that! Jen says she's put on this earth to help newly diagnosed women. This is obviously her god given passion!

Not only is the podcast pure gold for a newly diagnosed woman, it's also entertaining and uplifting! The banter between Jen and Darren is fun. Darren is truly inspiring himself as he is a role model for how to be a cancer thriver, as he handles a potentially devastating diagnosis in a uniquely optimistic way!

I can't recommend this podcast highly enough. There are multiple breast cancer podcasts out there, but this is my favorite because of the way they handle the heaviest of subjects with encouragement & hope. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Jen & Darren!

Also, get Jen's book. It's great too. Her facebook group is a place to connect with like minded women who share knowledge & support each other.

Ps: I know I sound super excited. It’s actually been the hardest 2 months of my life. I'm just so grateful for these wonderful resources and will continue to use and share them to help myself and others through this year of treatment and beyond. ❤️

Thank you for sharing the journey

Love the details and the information about trusting your intuition and making decisions for yourself and finding the right doctors that fit with you. I am a cancer survivor. I had high doses of external beam radiation, have long-term side effects, and currently have brain tumors that are being followed. Sharing what you went through what you were thinking what you were feeling and what was involved is so helpful for others who have not gone through the process or who are going through it currently love how you take care of your whole bodies with the importance of nutrition and water, intake and movement, and other things for healing… 💜 🦋
