We feel that knowledge is power and “Prevention is the Cure.”Your environment may have a greater impact, perhaps as much as 91% to 93% on a woman’s future health risk than the issue of her family history. The Proactive Breast Wellness Program (PBW) empowers you with practical suggestions to help embrace an anti-estrogenic diet and lifestyle management program to lessen your risk of developing breast cancer and empower breast cancer survivors. Learn about supplements, hormone testing and balancing, dietary and environmental changes. Identify environmental toxins, plastics and the dangers of GMOs, bovine growth hormones and antibiotics in your food. Learn self-care techniques, lymph-drainage massage, exercise and mind-body relaxation techniques. PBW is heart healthy—women lose stubborn belly fat, their libido improves and menopausal/thyroid symptoms decrease. The PBW Nutritional Supplement Protocols and worksheets are easy to follow.
Expert Medical Reviews:
“Protect Your Breasts presents a comprehensive overview of breast healthcare, including a Proactive Breast Wellness program that outlines multiple strategies to reduce the risk of breast cancer and its recurrence. The book also provides an excellent discussion of cryoablation or tumor freezing as a minimally-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of breast cancer. Furthermore, “The Early Freeze Protocol” proposes a novel strategy for facilitating the early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer while also reducing the physical and emotional burden that typically accompanies diagnosis and treatment. In the context of Patient Centered Care, Protect Your Breasts is a worthy read”! — Dr. Dennis R. Holmes, M.D., F.A.C.S, Breast Surgeon and Researcher, Cryoablation Expert and Advocate
Every woman will find this book useful. Many patients are passive and wait for the doctor to tell them what to do. This program is for the motivated woman who wants to achieve mastery of her health. This program is for any woman who feels overwhelmed by too much information from many different sources. I will give this program to my three daughters. —Dr. Max Chorowski, MD, FACOG Assistant Clinical Professor of OB-GYN and Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine and Medical Director, Counseling & Gynecology Group, Longmeadow MA
This book and program are very important. Women are confused. They are not told the truth. There is much confusing information on safe estrogen metabolism. Women are misled on how to properly protect themselves from breast disease. This program is definitely the most comprehensive program available nationally to improve a woman’s health.
Patients plus both practitioners and pharmacists need this comprehensive guide. Each professional group will benefit from Ingrid’s comprehensive research and organization of the existing data on women’s breast health and most of the evidence-based research in the field. It gives these professionals more to say than “Don’t smoke, and have regular mammograms.”—James E. Paoletti, RPh, FAAFM, FIACP, FACA Previous Director of Provider Education at ZRT Laboratory Vice President/Director of Continuing Education for Professional Compounding Centers of America, Inc. (PCCA), Board of Directors at International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists
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 book and multimedia presentation offered by Ingrid Edstrom, FNP, M.Ed., CTT. Her new book and eBook, Protect Your Breasts and The Proactive Breast Wellness Program is her magnus opus and a labor of love. —Carol Petersen, RPh, CNP Women’s International Pharmacy
