Oh boy! All this controversy over Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy. Everyone has an opinion, and yup of course, I will be giving you mine. Well, for one, I do believe in the freedom of choice and the freedom to make your own decision when it comes to your health. I do believe that everyone is entitled to making their own decisions. I don't judge Angelina Jolie on her decision. After all, she is doing what she knows is best, from what she is told. But I do wonder if she made a quick decision without getting all the facts, doing all her research and getting second opinions. Did she find out about prevention in the cancer world? Did she go and talk to integrative medicine doctors, alternative medicine doctors?
Of course, there are 2 sides to the coin. For those who have lost women to breast cancer, they are probably supporting this decision. And I would too, seeing that we lost someone very dear in our community to breast cancer. Someone too young to have gone too soon. I get that people want as low risk as possible to get breast cancer. It is a sad illness that probably everyone has been affected by. And I do feel awful for those who have lost someone close to breast cancer that want to hold onto some kind of "truth". My heart goes out to everyone who has lost someone to cancer, not just breast. However, being a naturopathic doctor and knowing what I know, I do believe that making a rash decision based on emotions and not facts is not the way to do what is best. Angelina Jolie is healthy, has the best resources and has the financial means to live a healthy, long life, with or without the breast cancer gene. By the way, we all have cancer in our body. The cancer cells are dormant unless we get a trigger from our environment (nutrition, emotions, environmental toxins).
The following link is a really good link to show you that there are other things at play when it comes to breast cancer and certain things you can do. From what I learned in my last course, our genes don't determine our destiny, what we do everyday, how we feel, how we eat, how we play, how we laugh, how we interact with our loved ones, how we work, and how we deal with stress determine our destiny. Of course every body is different and you have to do what is best for you. Listen to your gut, because if you're in line with your gut, doesn't matter what decision you have made. You have just done what is best and aligned with your "truth", which will keep your grounded and at peace, which is the essence of prevention.
