My Story: Breast Cancer, Flax + Flax Hull Lignans

Flaxseed and Breast Cancer Prevention, Flax for Hot Flashes.

flaxseed and breast cancer, flax for hot flashes, flax and breast cancer, preventing breast cancerMy name is Mary E. I was diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer in April, 2005. I have had 3 surgeries, 6 months of Chemotherapy and 3 months of daily Radiation Therapy. My Oncologist assures me that I am now cancer free, although I must take Tamoxifen every day. The Tamoxifen has caused me to have multiple hot flashes each hour of each day.

Flax for Hot Flashes

I think I was experiencing up to 100 hot flashes a day before I found Flax Hull Lignans. This was uncomfortable to say the least, caused facial and body sweats, and was embarrassing as I am a Consultant and am required to make many presentations a week in front of managers and other large audiences.

I came across Eleanor Theobald at a Craft Show during Jessie James Days in Northfield, MN in September of this year (2006). Eleanor taught me that Flax Hull Lignans have been found to reduce hot flashes and the combination of taking Flax and Flax Hull Lignans has reduced the occurrence and reoccurrence of Breast Cancer.

I began taking Flax and Flax Hull Lignans immediately after that Craft Show. My hot flashes have completely disappeared. I am not suffering from any hot flashes now. I no longer have to worry about embarrassing myself in front of audiences or in important meetings.

Flaxseed and Breast Cancer Prevention

I am excited about Flax and Flax Hull Lignans reducing the occurrence and reoccurrence of Breast Cancer. I never want to go through Chemotherapy again. Although there is an expense to taking both of these nutritional supplements, that expense is nothing in comparison to the expense of monthly co-pays for Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments in the hundreds of dollars.

I recently read in a magazine I found in my doctor's office the beneficial effects of the antioxidants present in Flax. I feel so good about giving my body something good every day. I will continue taking Flax and Flaxflaxseed and breast cancer, flax for hot flashes, flax and breast cancer, preventing breast cancerHull Lignans for the rest of my life, and thanks to the elimination of hotflashes, my quality of life has improved dramatically.

I will be grateful to Eleanor for the rest of my wonderful life!!! ~Mary E.

"Even at the full price the Cold Milled Flax is still cheaper than Metamucil or other fiber supplements that run about $12 for only 15 ounces! That's a great deal!"

"Ellie, Thanks for your email. Just a short testament: Have been trying for years to get my cholesterol numbers to be on the healthy side. Got your flax at the farmers market this past summer and took your advice on consuming it. Had a blood test 2 weeks ago and my Cholesterol number is at 181, down from 262. Healthy eating and exercise: definitely the way to go. Thanks again."

"I have several health problems: Type 2 Diabetes + Constipation being my top complaints. When I was introduced to Golden Flax seed, I was drinking fiber daily + lived on Senna. I no longer have to buy Senna or fiber."

"My hot flashes were so bad and I had up to 3 or 4 times in the night. My sleep was interrupted, not to mention the embarrassment of breaking out in a sweat and a red face during conversations.... Oh boy, I have not had a hot flash for about 3 weeks."

"The best thing that happened is that it has really helped stabilize my blood sugar. When blood sugar is stable without a lot of peaks + valleys, it's easier to lose weight + I'm game for that."
-- Thanks, Sherrie
