Proactive Breast Wellness Program Reviewed by Women’s International Pharmacy

From the Women’s International Pharmacy:

Our current medical system has been designed to take our hands and give us direction when disease has become evident, but it has left us sadly wanting when it comes to prevention. Finding and accessing the information necessary to prevent disease is difficult and time consuming. And, even if we do find it, interpreting it and understanding it may take some help.

Thankfully, a comprehensive compilation of what we currently know about keeping our breasts free from disease, including breast cancer, is available as an engaging multimedia presentation offered by Ingrid Edstrom, FNP, M.Ed., CTT. The Proactive Breast Wellness Program is her magnus opus and a labor of love.

The Proactive Breast Wellness Program

Many of my patients know about the Proactive Breast Wellness program because I’ve been providing it on a one-on-one basis since 2006. Over the intervening years I have shared nutritional information and the results of studies I’ve seen that have helped my patients make better choices. But if you haven’t been to our Eugene, Oregon office for your thermography scan of your breasts, you probably have some questions! What is the PBW program all about?

The Proactive Breast Wellness program is an educational tool to help you reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. I narrate nearly 5 hours of information on several aspects of breast care. The program is available as digital downloads or on 4 CDs, plus a free data disc/resource download with research information to go with the 9 chapters. As more and current research is conducted, I’ll update these resources annually. “Waves of Serenity” has been included as a relaxation CD/DVD or Digital Download to reduce stress, decrease insomnia and improve cortisol levels. We believe that the mind and body connection is important and medical researchers have learned a lot about how your emotions impact your health. Take a little “mini vacation” and enjoy a segment of “Waves.”

Our website,, has a lot of information available about the program. We also have a store where the supplements and books that we recommend are easily available for purchase. You can get 20% off your supplements to help keep you healthy.

Visit the “Chapter Plan” on our website to see the complete 9-chapter outline of the program.

I have assisted thousands of women since I created Infrared Breast Health LLC  based in Eugene, Oregon.

The Proactive Breast Wellness program has been in development for seven years, as I expanded my breast thermography clinical practice and worked on the program at the same time. I am pleased to now be able to offer the complete program to everyone, not just my patients.
