October 2016
October might be Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it's a great time to begin the healthy habits that help reduce your risk of contracting the disease - year-round!

Since 1 in 8 (12%) women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, Rejuvé offers new hope in cancer prevention by introducing a urine estrogen metabolism test - which is used for early detection and prevention of cancer cells before they form...

Rejuvé also offers solutions, including EstroDIM - a supplement that helps balance the estrogen hormone to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

And last, but not least - Dr. Tang wants to introduce the secrets for beautiful skin -- SkinMedica's Retinol Complex .25. This youth enhancing treatment offers optimal results, taking years off your skin without irritation.

Preventing Breast Cancer May Be 
Easier Than You think!
 
Did you know that a simple urine test can be used to detect an increased risk of getting cancer cells even before they are detected by traditional standard mammograms?

Thanks to Dr. Tang's commitment to keep women's healthcare a priority at Rejuvé, he has been using a valuable estrogen metabolism test that offers another way to assess breast cancer risk.  

While mammograms and self breast examination are important ways of detecting a mass in its early stages, and early detection significantly improves survival, it is important to understand that at this point the cancer has already formed. This urine estrogen test provides clues that help predict who is at risk to form these tumors years in advance, and allows women to monitor the progress of nutritional therapy.

Candidates for test include:
  • women who have had breast cancer and have been treated, but are concerned about another recurrence;
  • women who have family members who were recently diagnosed with breast cancer, and are struggling with the anxiety of the possibility of being diagnosed with breast cancer in the near future; or
  • any woman who wants to be more proactive about her health.
 
Breast cancer is believed to be linked to certain types of estrogens in the body. The urine  estrogen metabolism test works by measuring the metabolites (breakdown products) of estrogen in the urine. There are 3 types of estrogens: some are good, some ok, and some more likely to be cancer-causing. By looking at the ratio of these estrogens and measuring the body's ability to metabolize the estrogen it is possible to assess your cancer risk.

Fortunately, the formation of the bad estrogens and our ability to get rid of these bad estrogens can be changed with diet, exercise, stress management, lifestyle changes, nutritional and hormonal therapy, which can be seen in subsequent tests. 

But, how do you know if you're at risk or know that you should be making health changes if you don't check your baseline?

Here's the easy part: the test is performed non-invasively and conveniently for women. It is a morning urine collection done at home and sent from home. Unfortunately, standard insurances do not cover this test but HSA/FSA plans should cover this.
 
Unfortunately, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. According to The American Cancer Society's estimates, about 1 in 8 (12%) women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. The chance that a woman will die from breast cancer is about 1 in 36 (about 3%).

As you're no doubt aware by now, breast cancer is a big problem in America, so it's important that we all take breast health seriously.

Using the standard detection methods such as mammograms and self-examinations, urine estrogen metabolism tests give you the best possible chance to prevent and protect against this deadly disease.

Easy Options to Reduce the Risk of Breast Cancer
  
Did you know that you can take a health supplement, along with making a few lifestyle changes, and reduce the risk of breast cancer?
 
By keeping your hormones 'balanced' properly, you ensure your body is able to process hormones properly, reducing the risk of deadly disease.
 
EstroDIM
EstroDIM is a viable option to keep hormones balanced by providing the combined power of vegetable metabolites Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and diindolylmethane, (also known as DIM), in an easy-to-take capsule. These metabolites have strong potential for supporting breast, cervical, uterine and prostate health.  
 
Indole-3-carbinol is a naturally occurring compound derived from vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, while DIM is a phytonutrient and plant indole also found in vegetables, with the potential for enhancing proliferation of healthy cells and cellular activities.
 
EstroDIM provides the targeted doses of both I3C and DIM promote beneficial estrogen metabolism in both women & men, supporting the formation of healthy estrogen and enhances the potential for greater antioxidant activity. Better yet -- this 'once a day' capsule makes daily balancing of hormones easy and convenient.
 
Taking I3C & DIM daily to maintain hormonal balance is a smart choice. However, don't stop there! You should also control your sugar intake and avoid bad fats, which are potential ways to reduce inflammation. Many see chronic inflammation as a precursor for different cancers (including breast cancer).
 
One way to reduce your sugar in your body is to reduce simple carbohydrates. A study in the International Journal of Cancer found that having a high 'glycemic load' increases the risk of breast cancer. Simple carbs (like white bread, soda, candy, high fructose corn syrup) have a high glycemic index and create a surge in blood sugar. 
 
Another helpful tip is to avoid eating foods that contain trans fats found in fast food, chips, cookies, margarine, biscuits, doughnuts to name a few. Nuts, seeds, extra virgin olive oil used for salads and dips have good saturated fats and therefore are helpful for breast cancer prevention. Foods should be cooked in coconut or avocado oil because they remain stable at high temperatures allowing them to retain their health benefits. Unfortunately, olive oil becomes a trans fat when cooked at high temperatures.
 
You no longer have to live with the fear of developing breast cancer. Start taking control of your health and make lifestyle changes for optimal health.

Receive the Benefits of Retinol 
Without Irritation

We've explored the benefits of inner health, now let's take a look at the benefits of outer beauty. 

SkinMedica Retinol Complex
Have you ever tried retinol (vitamin A) products, only to find that your delicate skin couldn't tolerate the ingredients needed to prevent premature aging? 

You're not alone!  Many women desire younger, more beautiful skin but haven't been taught how to gently introduce vitamin A into their skincare regimen.

Fortunately, Retinol Complex .25 may provide answers. SkinMedica's special phytoshield technology is encapsulated in a 'time released' bi-lipid barrier with antioxidants for targeted delivery providing optimal outcomes with minimal irritation.

The appearance of fine lines and course wrinkles are diminished, while skin tone and texture is enhanced. Even better: collagen production is stimulated to plump up, making your skin supple, while improving the appearance of photo-damaged skin.

Here's the secret to introducing Retinol Complex .25 to your skin. First, cleanse and tone the skin in the evening, then introduce a small amount of retinol onto the surface of the face, neck, and decollete before applying moisturizer.    SkinMedica Retinol Complex

Continue with your evening beauty regimen, while applying retinol 2-3 days apart -- that's about twice a week. You are the only one who can determine what your skin can tolerate -- so listen to you body!

A little tingling immediately after application is okay, as long as your skin is not red or irritated the next day. Be sure to apply sun screen to your skin the next morning so that the daylight doesn't irritate the skin. 

For best results, increase Retinol Complex .25 frequency slowly -- until daily use is tolerated.  

Is sensitive skin stopping you from using products designed to prevent premature aging? Dr. Tang can offer a skincare regimen specific to your skincare needs. C all Rejuvé today at (408) 740-5320 for more information.
