Kite weather, spring showers, the return of song birds, early blooming bulbs, Easter bunnies and colored eggs: they all mean one thing…another cold!

Tomorrow, March 8, 2011 is International Women’s Day, a day when we celebrate the lives of women. Unfortunately, for many women (about 1 in 9 in Canada), too many lives are touched or ended prematurely by breast cancer.
Recently, we were asked if our green smoothie program would be helpful for someone who is facing breast cancer.
Here’s what our health consultant, Doctor Ariel Policano, NMD had to say:
When a person contemplates if something will work for breast cancer, you might want to approach it by asking the following question. Will it improve the overall functioning of your body including:
- your liver,
- your immune system,
- and your digestive health?
If the answer is yes, it is likely to have a very positive effect on your chronic health condition.
Here are the three ways that participating in a Green Smoothie program like the 21-Day Green Smoothie Detox can improve the health of someone with breast cancer.
