Daily Life

From Pam Stephan, your Guide to Breast Cancer
A year after treatment had ended, I was still deeply fatigued. I went to the gym, I went on walks, I ate a healthy diet and stayed hydrated. But I still wasn't recovered. If only someone had laid hands on me back then!

Acupressure May Relieve Breast Cancer Survivors of Fatigue
After chemo and radiation, you may feel wiped out, drained of energy, deeply fatigued. Some of us try yoga, acupuncture, diet, or long naps to get some relief. A nurse at Michigan State University is starting a new study on us survivors, to see if acupressure will provide relief from cancer-related fatigue. Two different kinds of acupressure will be used, as well as standard treatments.
Take a Poll on Fatigue And Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer-Related Fatigue
Cancer-related fatigue is more than just being tired; it's an extreme sensation of exhaustion and weakness, and it lingers even with appropriate amounts of sleep. It may even cause sleep disturbances, making you feel even more tired. There's a lot you can do about it, from self-help to professional help. Don't give up - you can recover your energy.

Macrobiotic Diet and Breast Cancer
Ready to overhaul your diet, exercise plan, and stress levels? You might try taking on the macrobiotic lifestyle. It is a low-fat, high-fiber diet and way of life. We're not sure why, but it seems to lower your estrogen levels, too. Becoming macrobiotic takes a real commitment, but will make a great difference in your life overall.

Phytoestrogens May Help Fight Cancer
Estrogen is made by your body, but is also present in some plants. Consuming foods that contain phytoestrogens may help prevent or fight cancer. That means that yes, you should eat your broccoli! But you have other options, too.
