Thank you for attending Aly's amazing Pilates for Cancer event at FitNut Loft, River Valley, in conjunction with Expat Living Singapore. Hopefully, you are holding your goodie bag (more on that below) and you have learned a thing or two about how to exercise smarter as you get older and how to be stronger, leaner, tighter, and healthier.
Breast cancer remains one of the leading cancer diseases among women in Singapore. According to the Singapore Cancer Registry Annual Report 2018, 1 in 13 women in Singapore and 1 in 8 women GLOBALLY will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime.
The month of October is all about raising awareness for a disease that impacts so many women and men globally. #breastcancerawareness
Roughly 20% of breast cancer cases are caused by genetics, but environmental and lifestyle factors play an important role as well. From quitting smoking, and reducing alcohol consumption, to a balanced diet and good physical health, you can reduce your risks of breast cancer by making mindful daily lifestyle choices.
Scientific studies show that many chemicals used in conventional skincare products are toxic and irritating, even at low doses. People are experiencing allergies, sensitivities, and terminal illnesses as a direct result. Ongoing exposure to toxins can be accumulative and the chemicals found in many everyday products contain further pollutants which cause environmental damage.
We get it. It's not always easy, but you are not powerless.
Awareness, Detection, and Protection
For many years Caroline and Rachael, NaturalSpot co-founders, have come to understand and experience the underlying effects of toxins, from skin conditions, allergies, and sadly family cancers.
So we have worked hard to create an inviting, calm, beautiful space where you can shop consciously for, what we believe, are the best natural, toxin-free products from across the globe.
Based in Singapore and New Zealand, we have collaborated with, and sourced ethical suppliers, and unseen makers of the world. Products that are natural, sustainable, minimal waste, fair-trade, and reusable but all have rich stories and purpose behind them.
At NaturalSpot we are here to support you, to empower you to confidently take care of yourself and your family without compromising on quality or sustainability.

Screening saves lives. One important thing you can do to reduce your risk for breast cancer is self-examination. It's a quick, accessible method. Consciously examining yourself to detect lumps or abnormalities that may constitute signs of breast cancer allows you to get ahead of the disease with early prevention.
