6 Surprising Things That May Improve Breast Cancer Treatment

 3 years ago       443 Views

Here are some strategies recommended by experts—and others that are still being explored—which may help improve the effectiveness and symptoms of treatment.

Several studies have found that physical activity can lower a woman’s risk for breast cancer, and some studies found that the most active women have about a 25% lower chance of developing the disease than the least active women. A 2015 study found that the more fit women were, the lower their risk for developing the disease.

In one 2017 study, doing yoga twice a week improved the levels of fatigue and quality of life for men being going through radiation treatments for prostate cancer.

The researchers found that the women who practiced yoga had lower fatigue and markers of inflammation than women who did not do yoga.

In a 2016 study researchers found that women who slept less than five hours a night on average before they were diagnosed with breast cancer were nearly 1.5 times more likely to die from their breast cancer than women who reported sleeping seven to eight hours.

“When you are emotionally not doing well, you feel things more physically.” Partridge says that when people feel tired, stressed or upset, they may perceive their physical symptoms of cancer as worse.
