Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon or rectum) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Every year, about 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 people die from it. But this disease is highly preventable, by getting screened beginning at age 50.
What You Can Do
If you’re aged 50 to 75, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed.
Please join us this Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. PST or 7:00 p.m. EST for a live show with host Denise Messenger. Our special guest is Dr. Matt Kreinheder. Over the past five years of clinical practice as a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Coach, Matt has helped people make deep connections with who they are. By focusing on an approach integrating the physical, emotional, mental and spirtual sides of healing, Matt has helped people heal and transform in ways they never expected. He focuses on helping people with cancer because he saw a real need for people to understand healing from a consciousness perspective. Many people focus on either just traditional medical assistance or nutrition, but have not yet explored their emotional, mental and spirtual toxicities. We will be discussing his Cancer Consciousness Project. You asked for it and we deliver!

Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms.. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Most women who are 50 to 74 years old should have a screening mammogram every two years. If you are 40 to 49years old, or think you may have a higher risk of breast cancer, ask your doctor when to have a screening mammogram. Some things may increase your risk. If you have risk factors, you may be more likely to get breast cancer.
Reproductive risk factors
• Being younger when you had your first menstrual period.
• Never giving birth, or being older at the birth of your first child.
• Starting menopause at a later age.• Using hormone replacement therapy for a long time.
Other risk factors
• Getting older.
• A personal history of breast cancer, dense breasts, or some other
• A family history of breast cancer (parent, sibling, or child).
• Changes in your breast cancer-related genes (BRCA1 or BRCA2).
• Getting radiation therapy to the breast or chest.
• Being overweight, especially after menopause.
