Moon Self Exams . . .

Breast and Testicular Cancer is a subject that’s shadowed my household on several occassions.

I have been the unlucky person to know numerous persons with these cancers.  And the most blessed that most are still here today because of early detection.

So as we “Race for the Cures” take that few moments to ensure you are in the race.

For both men and women it’s a life and death decision to make that check.  The full moon and/or new moon give us a visual reminder to make a check.  A few minutes extra in the shower is all it takes.  Just 5 minutes at least once a month may mean the difference of seeing a series of tomorrows.


From Susan G Komen:

Except for skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but it can be successfully treated. Screening tests can find cancer early, when it’s most treatable.

Make healthy lifestyle choices 

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Add exercise into your routine
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Limit postmenopausal hormone use
  • Breastfeed, if you can

From Dr. Oz:

No,  Seriously, Grab Your Nuts

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men in the 15-to-35 age group, but it’s usually curable if it’s caught early enough. I strongly urge you to grab your testicles. Check them for bumps at least once a month. Each testicle should feel smooth and slightly soft, and one should hang slightly lower than the other, like two avocados (which, in Aztec, actually means “testicles”) growing on a tree.

Men’s Health tip: Here is everything else you need to know to keep your package healthy.

About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. MatchaGT – the super premium Matcha Green Tea Introducing Matcha GT, the super premium Matcha Green Tea. Matcha GT is nature’s natural source of energy and antioxidants. Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance. While many forms of green tea are strained or brewed, Matcha GT uses the whole tea leaf providing the full benefits and bold taste of whole green tea powder. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
