TMHS 003: The Truth About Breast Cancer – Share this with every woman you know!

In this episode of The Model Health Show we get into a serious conversation about breast cancer, the treatments, prevention, and underlying causes. Most of the women who are diagnosed with breast cancer aren’t given the courtesy of actually knowing how the cancer in their body was created. This show is going to shine a whole new light on that.

If you’re life has been impacted by breast cancer, or any type of cancer for that matter, then this show is going to have a huge influence on you for many years to come. Not only do we take an in-depth look at the underlying causes of cancer, but we also get into specifics about reversing cancer and preventing cancer in the first place.

In this episode you’ll discover: 

  • Why breast cancer rates have skyrocketed in the last few decades.
  • What percentage of breast cancers are actually due to genetic mutations (this will shock you!)
  • How the function of your immune system is intimately related to cancer.
  • The 6 critical distinctions to understand about how cancer is created and how it operates.
  • Where the actual cancer mutations originate in your body.
  • What actually controls whether or not a cancer gene gets expressed.
  • How your cellular “sewage system” functions and the role in plays in cancer prevention.
  • What nutrient source cancer cells feed on (over than 30 times more than normal cells).
  • What proven carcinogens (cancer causing agents) are elevating your cancer risk.
  • How estrogen plays a key role in causing OR protecting against cancer.
  • The 7 uncompromising things that need to be done to prevent and reverse cancer.
  • Why genetically modified foods and food additives need to be avoided.
  • What dehydration does to your DNA (and gene expression).
  • What specific nutrients have been clinically proven to prevent and reverse cancer.

    great podcast Shawn. Some of those things I was aware of but you did a great job clarifying some of the misconceptions for me. some of the information was jaw dropping and disheartening to hear. we definitely act out of fear and make some life altering decisions. I know about that all too well. I truly love you for sharing yourself and your knowledge with the rest of us.

      Whitney, thank YOU, that means a lot. We need more empowered and proactive women like yourself out spreading the word and helping your sisters. Like you said, we often act out of fear and do only what we know to do at the time. Instead we need to take a moment, expand our options, and make big decisions like these with more balance and presence.

    Thank you for this podcast, Shawn. I knew some of those facts (I filter tap water, plant vegetables, practice a lot, ride a bike, etc.), but maybe you can clarify one thing to me: What kind of bread are we supposed to eat? I bought home bakery, cause I found out that every roll, every bread is basically a frozen pre-baked product – that means chemicals and who knows what else… However, we use wholewheat flour and sunflower seeds. Is that ok? I am very grateful for your information. I am from central Europe and you wouldn’t believe how uninformed and ignorant are most of practitioners here – hey, that is why I am asking! I’m not native, so I didn’t catch every word. Thank you! Greetings from Brno, Czech Republic
    PS: after listening to you I stopped taking pills and I’m sharing your podcast on Fb with everyone.

      Kamila, first off all, thank you! And secondly, sending you much love and gratitude to you in Brno 🙂 This is a very good question you’re asking, and there’s a lot of misinformation out there about it. It really boils down to how the bread is integrated into your body through digestion. I’ve got all the details you need to know about it right here:

      Thanks for sharing, Kamila!

    Shawn! In a way, I am speechless after listening to this podcast, but you know I will find the words. 🙂

    There is so much VALUABLE information here that I know I will listen to it again just to let it all absorb. My schedule is so crazy at the moment, so for me to choose to shut everything else down, sit and listen, tells me that, as always, you provide some extremely IMPORTANT research and knowledge. I highly urge your listeners to take notes and APPLY!!! (seriously-do this)

    One of the first points that resonates deeply for me is when you speak about the “nocebo” effect. Even though the diagnosis I received was not a cancer diagnosis, it goes along the same lines. As I have told you before, when the first words out of a doctor’s mouth (over the phone, no less) was “the fatality rate is”, it’s hard to swallow, especially at such a young age at the time. I did not know or think I had a choice but to follow their specific instruction and play the human lab-rat game. I know that sounds harsh, but I lived it for a long time, as you well know. But, thanks to your guidance, I have gained so much insight. I no longer, nor have I ever, own(ed) that illness. “Keep your thoughts positive, for they become you.” 🙂

    In the podcast, you briefly mention a point that I would like to reiterate, and that is the statistic of male breast cancer. My great-grandFATHER passed from breast cancer, so even though statistics are higher in women, it is not female exclusive.
    Thank you for reminding us of simplicity—of our food, of our lives, of our minds, etc. We all get so caught up and “affected” and going back to basics is truly the key. God-made vs. man-made: not a difficult decision.

    I could go on and on about this podcast (so, not so speechless after all 😉 )—- so once again, a simple THANK YOU!! Your deep passion is definitely contagious, as you have passed on to me and many others. Big, big hugs Shawn. 🙂

    • Shawn

      Big hugs to you too, Traci! And thanks so much for sharing that… You brought up a really important point about breast cancer not being exclusive to women. To have a man in your family actually fall victim to it is an important wake up call for ALL men.

      Thanks for your insights, Traci!

    Your ability to compose and convey such critical information that relates to current events in an almost immediate response is highly extraordinary. What a testament to your gifts, intellect, and heart. I hear your passion and it’s contagious.

    The information here is filled with perspectives and real facts that I have never heard before. The follow-ups and references are cold hard facts- nothing is up for interpretation. Your presentation is done so eloquently that it’s easy for one absorb completely. Your work speaks volumes.

    I am always learning, growing, and improving when I hear you speak..and always grateful to have that liberty and to share it with others. So valuable.

    Thank you all for all you do. Life is better.

    • Shawn
      21 May 2013, 6:43 pm

      Jennifer, thank you so very much 🙂 My goal is precisely as you said… to make the information clear and easy to absorb. What a difference it can make if someone is actually able to TRULY understand and embody the information. The only way we’re going to make a huge difference on the planet is if more people are the walking, talking examples of what’s possible.
      Thanks again!

    I knew when friend after friend after friend had breast cancer after my diagnosis, I knew there was something amiss. I knew this seem to be a conspiracy of some sort. I have been destroyed by the treatment. I am now suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis and in constant pain. They did the genetic test on me and I, they said, do not have the gene. Genes, genes, genes for everything! I’m on Herceptin now because of the Her2 receptors. Being diabetic too…..I’ve aged 10 yrs with all these side-affects? I know my body is fighting these affects which is trying to help me correct things. Stress will kill you people and manifest itself in a dis-eased state called diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis!!!!!! Uggh……thank you for this broadcast!

    I want to thank you so much for this informational and inspiring podcast. I have a scheduled appointment tomorrow to get a biopsy done because of nodule in my breast and have felt extremely anxious. You have helped educate me on causes of breast cancer and preventative measures that I can take to have a healthy life regardless of how the biopsy turns out. I feel less anxious after listening to you and more encouraged instead, and am ready to be proactive in healing my body. Wish me luck and pray for me.

      It is done, Monique! You will be well, and you will be whole… Everything tends to come into our life at the exact moment we’re ready for them. You’ve already made the most significant step by CHOOSING to be empowered and proactive in taking great care of yourself.

      You should be immensely proud of yourself.

        Hi Shawn,

        I wanted to let you know that I went to the surgeon yesterday for the biopsy that I told you that I was scheduled to have, but ended up not needing it because he said the lump is gone. I have to go back to see him in a month just to make sure, but he told me that all seems well. He also talked to me about beginning to take vitamin E supplements to help with breast tenderness issues that I have during certain times of the month. Thank you for your encouragement. I also sent your podcast message to a friend of mine that is a 10 year survivor of breast cancer and i will continue to help share your information because you, Elaine and my two favorite chiropractors-Dr. Edgar Everette and Dr. Xavier Tipler are on my team and we are all working in the movement of empowering people to live healthier lives, getting fit through exercise and proper nutrition and changing lives by re-evaluating the way that we as a community look at our health and our bodies. Let’s continue to keep in touch. God Bless!

    Hi Shawn.
    Thanks a lot for sharing this, everyone should know about this!
    I have some questions for you about the food to starve/beat the cancer or even prevent it.
    I know that carbs are not good, but how about the carbs in the fruits and the fruit sugar, do they also change into fructose in our bodies? If so, are they good for us? And what about whole grains, are they also bad for us? If so, we only got the veggie left and the healthy fat left….Hope you can help me to not be so confused.

      Hi Shawn,
      I came across your podcast when looking for information about “How not to get cancer.” I am a 10 year breast cancer survivor ~ and am determined to stay cancer free through active knowledge. You have captivated me with your direct, kind, no nonsense approach to self help, motivation and discovery. You’re information is priceless and your podcast is heartfelt. Thank you so much for your passion which is very contagious! Your information has come at a crucial time for me. I thank you!! God Bless You and your work! Sending best wishes your way! 😉
      Kind Regards, Lori

      PS ~ one question regarding Curcumin Supplements ~ can you direct me to a reputable source? Thanks! 😉

    Hi Shawn, I just listening to your podcast. Thank you so much for the information. I was diagnosed as DCIS stage 0. Went through the standard care – lumpectomy and radiation. Drs. convinced me that I am too young (with 2 small children) not to go with the treatments. I am a passionate armature runner (training for BQ) with plant-based diet. NO one, no doctor asked me about how I am, how I live – as you mentioned in the show. I wish I listened to your show much earlier.
    Now, I am convinced that my body is strong enough to live without Tamoxifen. My next appointment is in a few weeks, and I will firmly and respectfully decline the “offer”.

    Thank you again so much for believing in our body to heal and live strong.
    With gratitude, Soko

    Hi Shawn, great podcast as always with a lot of great information! Just wondering if you think the fact that Dr Hardings information on survival rates of cancer patients is still valid as it’s around 50 years old and cancer treatment has come a long way since then?
    Keep the awesome podcasts coming and thank you!

    Great informative podcast! Thank you! I love people who get wellness info out to the people who want it. Prevention is the best. Mainstream medicine isnt interested in prevention. Unfortunately the cancer industry is big business and the powers that be are interested more in profits than people. The radiation from mammograms cause cancer as well. I recently saw on Dr Coldwell’s Youtube that there are over 400 natural cures for cancer. A doc called Race for the Cure with Rick Stevenson talks about how cannabis oil cures terminal cancer. The other not really talked about cause of breast cancer I came across online is root canals. So may be worth avoid that dental treatment if possible and seek out natural alternatives incl oil pulling. We also need to make sure we’re getting much needed minerals back into our diet one way is thru Himalayan salt which also has selenium which is a cancer preventer too. You touched on a good point that the majority of cancers are environmental, the bigger picture is WHY. Why do most everyday products contain pointless carcinogens, why is our air poisoned with chemtrails, why is our foods sprayed with carcinogenic pesticides, why is our water laced with chemicals including toxic fluoride/chlorine/arsenic. Why are natural cures for cancers repressed, why is there still no cure despite hundreds of millions of dollars raised, why are holistic doctors whove cured cancer and autism among others being murdered. There is a larger sinister NWO agenda at play to dumb us down, make us sick eventually kills us for their depopulation agenda and make us infertile. We all need to wake up to whats really going on.

    Hello Shawn,
    I just found your site tonight and enjoyed your podcast. Several years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and my immune system was trash. So I started doing my homework. A lot of what I found will fit right in with your program.
    First I was consuming Splenda in high amounts and he really had me messed up. So I stopped immediately. My immune system was so toxic I couldn’t even get on a plane without coming home I’ll and it lasted for about 30-60 days every trip. Something I had believed in for years was using any deodorant was a Nono. They blocked the very pores we need to rid our bodies of toxins. So I stopped using deodorant and started taking organic Chlorella and it really started building my immune system as well as no more body odor. I was concerned about being a sitting duck for cancer so I started reading up on a oxygen rich system and started using oxygen drops and they also work as a toxin ridding agent. Then I concentrated on a PH healthy body vs an acidic body, both of which cancer cannot survive in. I also use very little body lotion also due to the clogging factor, 12 years later, I am plugging along. I hope to see more of you and your casts in the future. I also started using a water filter and I added organic white tea in my diet for hydration and it helps.

    Hi Shawn, really enjoying the podcasts! What was the book you mention about at around 40 minutes? I can’t quite work out the name or see it in the show notes.

    Many thanks!

    Hi Sean!

    I work in specialty coffee, and I want to encourage people to bring their own cups and not to use take away cups, but I want to have the studies to show people if they question the information. I would like to be informed so that I don’t fail people when they ask, could you share that study? Is there a good place I can go to look for studies like this? Thanks for all you do!
