Had bilateral mastectomy, hysterectomy. Altering diet enough instead of hormone blockers?

Just had bilateral mastectomy because I had a tumor 1.2 in my rt breast and no positive nodes. The tumor was estrogen and proestroge. Both of my breast had numerous cyst and drained for 28 years. I kept up with mammograms, thank GOD. I have had a hysterectomy about 12 years ago. I have been researching hormone blockers and I don't want to use them. If I change eating, add dim, iodine, D, B, exercise and loss weight will it be okay for me to not take the blockers.

Hormone manupulation therapy for breast cancer is proven treatment with multiple randomized trials which have shown survival benifit in patients whose tumor have hormone receptor. So you are strongly advised to take those medications.
Regarding alternative food and diet,you can follow them but they are not substitute to hormonal therapy.
