June is Bowel Cancer Awareness month, with a positive message - saving lives through early detection.
We want to take it one step further by PREVENTING Bowel Cancer.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and minimising risk factors can slash the chances of developing Bowel cancer.
Diet and lifestyle changes could prevent more deaths from bowel cancer than any screening or awareness program. Stopping bowel cancer in its tracks!
Following a Low Carbohydrate, Healthy Fat (LCHF) diet may be protective against bowel cancer. An LCHF diet includes large amounts of fibrous, nutrient dense vegetables, whereas the typical western diet contains far less fibre and a lot more processed foods (containing a range of additives and sugars which are pro-inflammatory in the gut).
A healthy diet also contributes to a healthy gut microbiome, decreased intestinal inflammation, healthy body weight and a decreased risk of obesity all further reducing risks.
If you would like to minimise your risks of developing bowel cancer by implementing a protective diet, contact us today!
Note: Any changes to your diet should be made in consultation with your General Practitioner and/or a Nutritional Consultant. Contact our friendly team today for more information about our services and let us help you take back control of your health.
