Proactive Breast Wellness Resources

Welcome to our resource page, a place of learning and growth!

My patients and friends often ask me, “What do you suggest I read to learn more about various health concerns or just expand my knowledge base?”  There are so many wonderful texts and authors available to you now in hard copy and online. We will be adding to this section over time, so come back and visit periodically.

I have included some of my favorite books that are in my own library as well as recommendations from colleagues. I have also included selections of books by authors I have met over the years at medical conferences. PBW has attempted to choose books that are science-based for the people who are not fluent in “Medical-eze” and many have a complementary / integrative medicine foundation. We have also included some video selections to enlighten and expand your thinking. The videos may just possibly encourage your children to consider food or lifestyle choices in a different manner. Many video topics are based on the environment and the challenges that we all face in trying to create a healthy life for ourselves and our families.

We will arrange the books by topics instead of alphabetically.  The topics are more directed towards women’s breast health, but the margins blur into women’s health in general which includes some menopausal spice and some healthy cookbooks for good measure.

Our family loves books and I hope you enjoy browsing!
