Carotenoids Reduce Your Risk for Breast Cancer

Recent evidence from 24 population-based studies and even a second analysis from Harvard of data from eight studies noted a decrease risk for breast cancer with higher carotenoid levels.  See more: Evidence Suggests Breast Cancer Prevention from Carotenoids.

The lead researcher noted "a 20-30% decreased risk of breast cancer when comparing the highest concentration of carotenoids to the lowest".

Carotenoids are found in brightly colored foods, particularly carrots, but also in dark green vegetables, such a spinach, kale and broccoli.  Examples include: beta-carotene, lycoplene, lutein, zeaxanthin and astaxanthin.

But how can you tell what your carotenoid level is?  The answer: The BioPhotonic Scanner (scientifically validated).  Better and quicker than drawing blood and not only a reflection of the carrots you just ate, but a measure of what you have been eating and doing the last 6-8 weeks!  A 30 second hand-scan provides you with an immediate Skin Carotenoid Score to measure your antioxidants.

Come get your scan and the learn how we may help you reduce your risk for breast cancer.

Together we can prevent 90,000 breast cancer cases this year!

This is general content and not personal medical advice, but I think everyone should consider getting a scan: 512-451-5788

Better than weight loss! Totally Reshape your body in 90 days!

Ever wonder why diets don't work?

Most of the ones I've reviewed don't work because they starve the body, which means both fat and muscle loss.  But we know from previous blogs that increasing weight and BMI are associated with more breast cancers, so all of us need to get motivated.

What if there were a program based on gene expression science?  One that helps both mind and body achieve that leaner you?  One that redefines your body composition to build a healthier, leaner you!

I've found that system and seen the results first hand: ageLOC®TR90™!  

ageLOC TR90 is the breakthrough weight management and body reshaping system based on highly innovative gene expression science!  ageLOC TR90 combines a powerful eating plan (decreasing refined carbs and fats while maintaining protein, vegetable and fruit intake and distributing protein intake evenly throughout the day) with a more active lifestyle (exercise and activity).

What I've seen with ageLOC TR90

  • supports lean muscle mass
  • increases healthy metabolism (muscles use more calories than fat)
  • promotes healthy weight loss (lose that dangerous fat around the middle)
  • improves mood
  • reduces cravings

For more information, view the video explanation by Dr Mark Bartlett at TR90 science then call me before April 23, 2014 to see if the ageLOC TR90 system is just right for you: 512-451-5788.

Exciting Health News!

The remainder of this month I will be posting about general health and wellness, because that means better breast health and fewer breast cancers.  The estimate from  AICR and WCRF are that this year 90,000 breast cancer cases could be avoided, mostly with lifestyle changes.

You already know:
  • Be active
  • Regularly exercise
  • Be lean
  • More vegetables and fruits
  • etc (see prior posts)
But, what about supplements?  I take them, but, if you do, how do you know if your supplements are working?

The answer is the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner.  Pharmanex is the only nutritional supplement company I could find that provides a fast and convenient way to determine your antioxidant status--whether your supplements are actually protecting you.  

We have that tool, the S3 Scanner (see S3 scanner and prior post), that measures your Skin Carotenoid Score by means of a 30 second hand scan.  Call for your appointment to get a scan and find out how healthy you really are, today: 512-451-5788.  This applies to men, too!

In the coming weeks, I will then post about the products Pharmanex offers to improve your score and the performance guarantee they offer.  You may learn more now at

Snow day!

Snow day in Austin, Texas!  Everything, even the city, closed.

A good day to reconsider being healthy and doing things to prevent breast cancer:

  • Exercise (I did go to the gym today [drove slowly])
  • Be lean (don't overeat today)
  • Be active (sitting around is the worst thing you can [or can't] do)

Plan to find out how healthy you are by measuring your carotenoid antioxidant level.  We have the Pharmanex BioPhotonic scanner and in 1.5 minutes can tell you your skin carotenoid score (SCS) by placing your hand in front of a low level blue light.  You can then be empowered to make improvements in your antioxidant levels.  All three of the above suggestions improve antioxidant health, but what you eat and which supplements matter, too.  Eating a balanced diet with 5-10 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables as well as well formulated nutritional supplements will help.  In fact LifePak™nano and g3 juice are formulated to provide your body with a comprehensive array of vitamins and minerals to fill the gaps your diet may have.  And, best yet, the results can be measured with the scanner.  In fact, if you use the LifePak monthly Automatic Delivery Rewards program and your scan does not improve Pharmanex will refund your money!

Get your scan Monday 512-451-5788 (in Austin no snow then) or check out for more information and a scanner location near you.

Together we can prevent 86,000 breast cancer cases this year.  Let's start with you!

How to improve your antioxidant score.

You have measured your Skin Carotenoid Score and you want to improve it?

By getting your Skin Carotenoid Score you are now empowered to improve your antioxidant health.  

But, how do you do that?

  1. Diet: at least 6 servings of deeply colored fruits and vegetables
  2. Body fat: be as lean an you can
  3. Exercise: every day
  4. Sedentary: do everything to avoid this
  5. Smoking: don't ever
  6. Pollution: avoid
  7. Sunlight: use sun screen 
  8. Supplements: well formulated containing phytonutrients (plant sources)
The first seven we have reviewed in the blog posts in the past and will again.

And where do you find the supplements specially formulated to increase your antioxidant protection?  Pharmanex products.  Begin with Lifepak™nano, which has been shown in numerous studies and my personal experience to dramatically raise your SCS.  Lifepak™nano is the most comprehensive multivitamin/mineral supplement I have been able to find.  Lifepak products supply a variety of micronutrients, phytonutrients and antioxidants, scientifically formulated to support longevity and wellness.  Learn more at   It contains omega3's, polyphenols and other antioxidants which in higher levels reduce your risk for breast cancer ( and  It even helps you get a jumpstart on numbers 2, 3 and 4.

How do you know your supplements are making a difference?

Have you ever wondered that?  I have and I take supplements because I believe our 21st century American diets are deficient in some nutrients, particularly antioxidants.  

Antioxidants help protect you from free radical damage.  We are each exposed every day to free radicals from smoking, pollution, sun exposure, preserved foods, excessive body fat, inactivity, even stress, to name just a few.  We can do some things to lessen the free radical damage, such as, exercise, avoiding pollution and smoke, using sun block, eating a balanced diet and choosing more highly colored fruits and vegetables.  BUT, I believe that is not enough, we also need well formulated nutritional supplements.

Now, we have the means to measure carotenes (one of the most important antioxidants) in the skin and get a Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS), which is an indicator of over all antioxidant status of the body.

This new measuring tool is called the Pharmanex Bio-Photonic Scanner, based on the Noble-prize winning technology: Resonance Raman Spectroscopy.  You place your hand in front of a low-energy blue light.  The result of the 1.5 minute test is not a biomarker that diagnoses or predicts a disease but a Skin Carotenoid Score that helps you determine if you are consuming an adequate amount of antioxidant containing nutrients.  This SCS is a measure of long-term lifestyle and not just reflective of the bag of carrots you ate right before the test to make your score better!  

We have the scanner and can help you keep your New Year's Resolution to be fit!  Call us at 512-451-5788 for your appointment for the 1.5 minute scan with immediate results.  It costs just $20.  You and I can then discuss your score and how to improve it and track it.

Tomorrow: How to improve your results.

It is time to KNOW your risk for Breast Cancer

Celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month by learning your risk for breast cancer so we may offer a plan for risk reduction and the right screening program.

Consider the HALO Breast Pap Test if you are between 21 and 55 years.

Consider the BREVAGen RIsk Assessment Test if you are over 35 and you don't have a family history of breast cancer, don't meet the criteria for BRACAnalysis or have tested negative for the BRCA 1 & 2 gene.  

We look forward to seeing you to help find out your risk and set up you life changing plan!

You may find out more about each of these tests in previous blogposts.
