How To Repair DNA Damage And Heal Cancer

Repair DNA Damage

Today, 1 out of 3 women could develop some form of cancerif they do not take proactive and preventative measures. We live in a toxic and stressed-out world overflowing with processed food, chemicals, and electropollution that can cause DNA damage. However, you have control over your body, and you can choose to prevent and heal cancer by repairing your DNA. You just need to do the work to repair, rejuvenate, and prevent.

Your beautiful and powerful body has approximately 37 trillion cells that house your DNA. Brain cells think and create for you, immune cells heal you, and muscle cells keep your heart beating. You are your own universe of living cells. How you care for them determines how they will function for you.

From unnecessary pharmaceuticals to electropollution, I could write a very large book on how people damage their DNA. However, since you have a vibrant life to go and live, I will share a few causes and many SOLUTIONS you can try today.

Cancer is a Cellular Problem

Before I get into the causes and solutions, I first want to spell out why preventing and repairing your DNA is such an important part of your breast cancer healing journey. 

The “metabolic disease” theory states that cancer is a problem that exists at the cellular level. (Please review this study to learn more.) Damaged cells can lead to various cancers, illnesses, and dis-eases. Only about 5-10% of cancer cases are due to genes. 

The new field of epigenetics (please read this blog to learn more) discovered how outside factors influence cellular expressions that can lead to all kinds of illnesses. On the flip side, how you use these factors can determine your healing. Your DNA is not your destiny, no matter your genetic disposition. Information about your genetic blueprint is incredibly helpful, but it isn’t the end-all. The lifestyle choices you make for your DNA will support healthy genetic expression and “program” your body for breast cancer prevention, healing, and vibrant health.

Causes of DNA Damage

Below are just a few reasons. To learn more and discover proven solutions, please read my book, Heal Breast Cancer Naturally.

  • Smartphones, Bluetooth Devices, and EMFs. For example, smartphones release constant doses of non-ionizing radiation that increase free radical production and cause DNA damage. If you store your cell phone in your bra or keep it close to your body all day long, you are dousing your sensitive breast tissue with radiation. Learn more via this study.
  • BPA. Studies using cutlers of human breast cancer cells show that BPA acts through the same pathways as estrogen. It induces cell proliferation as well as DNA damage to human cells.
  • Alcohol. The ethanol in alcoholic drinks is metabolized (broken down) to acetaldehyde which can damage your DNA. 
  • Styrofoam cups and plates. Styrene, the chemical used to make Styrofoam, has been shown to deplete glutathione, a primary antioxidant that protects against free radical damage. It also causes DNA damage and has shown evidence of estrogen properties. Styrofoam is especially dangerous when it holds hot food or liquids.
  • Mammograms. The low-dose radiation from mammograms can INCREASE breast cancer among high-risk women by damaging the DNA in an already compromised and weak body. The compression and radiation might also stimulate cancer cells to grow and spread. Please learn more about mammograms and better testing alternatives via this blog post.

And it continues with things you can’t see…

  • Oxidative Stress. The body cannot readily detoxify or repair damage from toxins. When your body breaks down food or is exposed to environmental toxins, it produces free radicals that can cause DNA damage. If your liver and detoxification pathways are not functioning at optimal levels, chronic exposure to free radicals can lead to DNA damage and, ultimately, cancer. Learn more via this study.
  • Parasites. They can lead to cysticercosis, which is linked to DNA damage and tumor growth. Please learn more via this study and my blog post on parasite cleanses. I also suggest looking into regularly doing coffee enemas.
  • Chronic Stress. Toxic relationships, workplaces, and harmful lifestyle choices all cause DNA damage that leads to cancer. Pioneer psycho-oncologist Dr. R. G. Hamer is famous for this quote: “I searched for cancer in the cell, and I have found it in the brain.”

How to Repair DNA Damage

Just like the list above, these are just a FEW solutions. Please continue to follow my blog and podcast for the most up-to-date research and insight.

  • HIIT & Exercise. Researchers found 72% fewer metastatic cancer cases in people who reported regularly exercising at a high intensity compared to those who did not engage in physical exercise. This study found that just 16 weeks of exercise “dramatically increased antioxidant activity, decreased DNA strand break, and promoted DNA repair.” Ladies, it’s time to live the sweat life to enjoy the sweet, healthy breast life! Get moving via this blog post.
  • Mushrooms. This incredibly versatile veggie protects against free radical DNA damage. Enjoy a few of my favorite mushroom recipes today: Portobello Fries, Mushroom Soup, and Garlicky Mushrooms.
  • Manage Chronic Stress.  Your mind and thoughts affect your DNA and your Immune System. Boosting your mental health and healing your inner child are powerful tools you can use to Heal Your Emotional Wounds, which is Essential #4 in my 7 Essentials System®.

Impoertant Supplements

  • Poly-MVA. It stands for Polymer Minerals, Vitamins, and Amino Acids, and it was an essential part of my recovery. states, “…acts as a freepoly MVA radical scavenger, crosses the cell membrane, and is able to transfer electrons from fatty acids to DNA via the electron transport chain in mitochondria, which protects against DNA damage. This could protect non-cancerous cells from the oxidative damage caused by radiation and chemotherapy.” Please learn more about Poly-MVA via this blog post.

  • CoQ10. It is a potent antioxidant that boosts the immune system and prevents DNA damage and the growth of cancer cells. You can order a highly bioavailable form of CoQ10 here.
  • MitoQ. It’s a breakthrough cell health molecule scientifically proven to boost mitochondria’s ability to balance free radicals and combat cell stress. Please learn more via this blog post.

You Never Have to Fear Breast Cancer Again
