Breast Cancer Chemotherapy Patients Needs Their Friends And Family Help With Fitness and Skin Care
Houston, Texas ( AP ) Barron's Medical Journal Robert Graham Ph.D. Ask GenNXeix Biotech CEO Rose Conrad Ph.D. to talk about Fitness & Skin Care. Rose indicated that Physical activity may protect against breast cancer. Few prospective studies have evaluated breast cancer mortality in relation to cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), an objective marker of physiologic response to physical activity habits. The association between CRF and risk of death from breast cancer in the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study. Women (N = 14,811), aged 20 to 83 yr with no prior breast cancer history. maximal treadmill exercise test duration and was categorized for analysis as low (lowest 20% of exercise duration), moderate (middle 40%), and high (upper 40%). At baseline, all participants were able to complete the exercise test to at least 85% of their age-predicted maximal heart rate. This is a indication that Fitness is important to breast cancer patients.
Skin Care for women with breast cancer is a major concern for breast cancer patients and their loves ones. Women that have to under go chemotherapy and radiation therapy skin care have improved over the years. Genomic science allows Researcher and Physicians to look at each breast cancer patient and recommend a treatment strategy to maintain skin management. Lets discus the different types of breast cancer. Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. There are three main types of invasive breast cancer (cancer that has spread beyond the layer of tissue in which it developed and is growing into surrounding, healthy tissues).
Invasive ductal carcinoma: Begins in the ducts that carry breast milk and is the most common type of breast cancer (8 in 10 women with breast cancer have this type)
Invasive lobular carcinoma: Begins in the glands that make breast milk and is less common than invasive ductal carcinoma (1 in 10 women with breast cancer have this type)
Inflammatory breast cancer: Found in the lymphatic system of the skin of the breast and is an uncommon type of breast cancer (1 percent to 3 percent of all breast cancer diagnoses are inflammatory breast cancer)
In advanced cases, breast cancer cells may spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body via the blood stream or lymph system.
Scientist say breast cancer chemotherapy treatment can cause your skin, hair, and nails to become brittle, dry, and sensitive. Cell turnover is diminished or halted all together during chemo treatments, meaning that the current cells of your skin may not be getting renewed like normal. This means that you need to treat your skin with care.The vitality of your skin, hair, and nails is going through the same struggles as the rest of your body. 1. Moisturizing your skin immediately after washing and toweling dry.
For your body, this means applying moisturizer after the bath or shower.
For your face, this usually means applying moisturizer in the morning and at night.
For your hands, this means moisturizing after washing many times during the day.
For your lips, this means using a hydrating lip balm throughout the day. 2. Cleansing your skin with gentle cleansing products only. Apply them only where you need them and be sure to rinse them off thoroughly with warm water.
For your body, this means you typically only need to soap up the parts of your skin that have the body odor glands (apocrine glands) including your armpits, groin, buttocks, and feet. If you still have oily skin when you are on chemo, you’ll also need to use cleanser on the oily areas of your back, neck, and chest too. For your face, this means using the mildest cleanser that gets off your makeup and products, but that isn’t so harsh as to dry out your skin. Don’t shoot for that tight “squeaky clean” feeling after washing because it means that you removed too much of your natural oils and actually irritated your skin.
For your hands, this means using cleanser only on your palms most of the time. Skin on the back of your hand rarely gets into germs and grime, and it’s fragile and prone to dryness. Also, the space between your fingers and under your rings trap cleanser, so be careful to rinse all the cleanser off well; retained cleanser will irritate and “burn” your skin, worsening some of the hand-skin problems that occur during chemo.

Barrons Medical Journal has researched several different treatment options for breast cancer patients and their is a product that seem to produced the best results in the shortest period of time. Nerium oleander provides a unique properties that produce a age-defying results when applied to the skin. This finding led to the creation of the NeriumAD skincare line.
Conrad says that Nerium is great for breast cancer patients skin: Nerium contains NBio-PL2. NBio-PL2 is use to extract from the Nerium oleander plant in a way that preserves its unique and beneficial properties. This patent-pending extraction process yields the NAE-8 extract used to formulate this first-of-its-kind age-defying product line.
Oleanders are a flowering shrub that thrives with little care. Oleanders grow best in full sun and are heat and drought tolerant. Oleanders also thrive in different soil types as long as it has good drainage. The Oleander plant grows especially well in seaside coastal gardens, tolerating salt spray and wind. Oleanders flower from early summer until mid-autumn. Colors range from white through yellow, peach, salmon and pink to deep burgundy red.
Thought to be the Biblical Rose of Jericho, Nerium oleander has been mentioned by ancient texts and folklore. Used traditionally by herbalists as a folk remedy for a wide variety of maladies and conditions, including dermatitis, abscesses, eczema, psoriasis, sores, warts, corns, ringworm, scabies, herpes, skin cancer, sunburn, acne, cold sores, age spots, asthma, epilepsy, malaria, emetics, heart tonics, and tumors. Macerated leaves of oleander have been applied topically for treatment dermatitis, loss of hair, superficial tumors and syphilis. Promising uses include congestive heart failure and cancer. Records of the medicinal use of oleander date back to ancient time. Mesopotamians in the 15th century BC believed in the healing properties of oleander and the ancient Babylonians and later the Roman soldiers used a mixture of oleander and licorice to treat hangovers. Arab physicians used oleander as a cancer treatment in the 8th century AD.
