The Proactive Breast WellnessTM program was developed for women who wanted to take a more preventive approach to breast cancer and breast disease. Our protocol has been successfully reversing inflammatory changes in the breast as observed by thermography scans in a 6-12 month period on this program. Current medical care tends not to focus on educational programs to help women decrease their risk of cancer, it only treats existing pathology. Our mission is to change this fundamental lack of education and help women to empower themselves by giving you tools that are included in our Proactive Breast WellnessTM program.

The Proactive Breast WellnessTM program is an educational program in English which includes 4 hours and 55 minutes on five audio CDs, a FREE Data Disc covering the nine chapters including a large volume of research and reading materials, and a copy of Waves of Serenity CD/DVD progressive muscle relaxation /guided beach imagery (Sample here) to reduce cortisol levels, promote sleep and decrease stress. The program is also available as a digital download.

The Proactive Breast WellnessTM program gently leads you through the protocol and educates you about the factors that you can change to improve your health. The program consists of 4 hours and 55 minutes on five CDs narrated by Ingrid Edstrom, FNP, M.Ed. that are broken down into chapters which can be updated and added to as the research changes in the future. Women who purchase the program through this web site will be able to have newsletter updates sent to them during the year as new research becomes available or for special offers. The data disc is broken down into corresponding segments so you can follow along with the narrative and also explore areas of interest in depth. For the most part allopathic Western medicine has a focus on “treatment” not on prevention, health education or risk reduction. Women are frightened and frustrated by receiving news that their mammogram or ultrasound are “Borderline or being watched” and they are told to return in 4-6 months for more studies. They are not told what they can “Do” in the meantime to reduce their risk or even possibly reverse the issues that may be developing. This program will help worried younger women who have been told that several of their older relatives have developed breast cancer and they feel that they are simply waiting to become a statistic. Genetics only contributes to about 7-9% of your risk of developing breast disease and 91-93% is affected by things that you can control like eating organic foods, lifestyle choices, getting your hormones balanced and avoiding hormone disrupters like herbicides/pesticides and plastics in your environment. We are living in an “Estrogenic soup” of chemicals and hormones that are adversely affecting our health. This program will help empower you to start making these positive changes for yourself and for the health of your family.

The Proactive Breast WellnessTMCustom Supplement Line

We are delighted to be in the process of providing a customized nutritional supplement line created by Innate to our specifications based on research and our protocol that has been reversing inflammatory changes in the breast tissue. These products may help you to reduce your risk of developing breast cancer, improve your breast health, immune system and provide an excellent woman's multivitamin. There will be several versions to choose from. There will be a breast health maintenance product, an optimal strength and an immune support product.

We realize that it is a challenge financially for you, as well as compliance issues to try to take a large number of different supplements on a daily basis. Some days it just seems like too many pills! To solve these problems, we will be creating several EASY TO TAKE, GREAT TASTING POWDERED products! There will only be a couple other capsules with fish oil and other components that may not mix into a powder easily. Until these custom products are available, you can still get them off our virtual dispensary at a discount. If you wish to be notified by email when the Proactive Breast WellnessTM program and the custom supplements are available, please go to the STORE/ VIRTUAL DISPENSARY section to send us your email. Breast wellness and a woman's multivitamin should be easy to take, taste great and be affordable!

Innate Response Formulas are 100 percent whole food (vegetarian) mainly organic. Each batch is tested for pesticides, herbicides and heavy metals. They are free of gluten, dairy and soy. The supplements are made from fresh, frozen, raw whole foods in their own FDA-registered facility. In 2011 the FDA utilized the cutting edge Innate Labs to train their new FDA agents so they could then go out and examine other laboratories. Innate is using the state-of-the-art Refractance Window drying system that uses slow evaporation which keeps phytonutrients, enzymes, colors and flavor intact from the whole foods that they came from. A thin film of natural cellulose which is thinner than a capsule ensures rapid nutrient delivery.

There are over 1,400 different vitamin companies. The majority of these companies do not produce their own products. Few have their own lab. Even fewer produce their own raw materials. Innate is proud to be among the exclusive group that is truly vertically integrated, ensuring quality in every step of the process. Their tag line: "We are Innate. Food...Not Chemicals".

It appears through our research and the work of our academic partners that breast cancer patients have a similar profile: They are usually all high in estrogen, testosterone and cortisol (from high stress levels and lack of sleep), low in progesterone, low in iodine, are hypothyroid and have low Vitamin D3 levels. This protocol and list of dietary supplements, diet and environmental changes and hormone balancing will help women to reduce their risk of breast cancer. The Anti-Estrogenic Diet that is detailed in the Proactive Breast WellnessTM program will help you to identify foods and nutritional supplements that help to lower your risk and other foods that increase activity in the breast. This is the same protocol that we have been using in our clinical research program which has been reversing inflammatory changes in the breast in the course of 6-12 months if the woman makes an effort to make the changes in lifestyle and diet.

In the Proactive Breast WellnessTM program you will find a list of compounding pharmacies as well as a health care provider who is familiar with working with Bio-Identical Hormone replacement through Women’s International Pharmacy. There are multiple book lists on perimenopause and menopause and bio-identical hormones and supplement support during this time of change. There are also links to find a certified Infrared camera center in your area and hopefully there will be more centers in the next few years.

Do you fall into these categories that may be increasing your risk of deceloping Breast Cancer? Find out now!

Get your hormone levels checked accurately and easily at home by saliva, blood spot capillary testing and dried urine testing for iodine. You can then share these results with your health care provider. The Proactive Breast WellnessTM program is pleased to create custom test kits for you. We are partnering with ZRT Lab under the direction of Dr.David Zava, a leader in breast cancer research education for over several decades. You will be able to make choices based on suggestions from the Proactive Breast WellnessTM audio program and handouts for different panels of tests that may include: estrogens, progesterone, free testosterone, DHEA Sulfate, cortisol levels, Vitamin D3, thyroid panels, iodine by dried urine testing plus cardio vascular panels. Find out if you may be at greater risk of developing breast cancer or if you may be having early symptoms of hypothyroidism or another problem that may be currently undiagnosed that you have been worried about. Knowledge is power. If you know what your status is, you can "DO" something about it. Take a preventive and active stance in improving your health.

Lymphatic drainage is also very beneficial. Avoid wearing under wire bras and tight clothing that restrict the movement of lymph. Antiperspirants that prevent your body from sweating and releasing toxins is harmful, particularly if the product has aluminum in it. Kimby Maxson, Licensed Massage Therapist and specializes in Lymph Drainage Therapy has been an excellent source to women on their breast health. Kimby is also a Midwife and for years ran a Nonprofit that provided complementary care for cancer patients including lymphatic drainage therapy and education..

Do you have estrogen dominance?
High levels of estrogen affect many diseases including fibrocystic breast disease, ovarian cysts and premenstrual syndrome or PMS. The liver is important in breaking estrogen down into an almost totally unpotent form. It also converts estrogen into compounds that can be excreted from the body through urine and bile. The purpose of this diet is to support the liver, to reduce sources of estrogen found in foods and to support other glands such as the adrenal glands and the thyroid gland that influence estrogen levels in the body.

Plastics, herbicides, rodenticides and pesticides are a major problem because they are Xenoestrogens/ estrogen mimickers, and chemically they appear similar to your own your body’s natural estrogen and they bond with your receptor sites and are stored in a woman’s fat tissues. These receptors sites are in our breasts and as we become middle aged many women start gaining weight around the middle of our bodies and decrease our activity levels. Breast cancer is for the most part an estrogen dominant problem and since we live in an “Estrogenic soup” whatever we can do to decrease our estrogen load will improve our situation and health. This environmental and dietary estrogen has increased the prostate cancer rates in our men and the early breast development in our little girls. Girls used to develop breasts at age 12 or 13, now they are fully breasted at 8 or 9 and their periods are starting earlier than all other generations before them. Our grandmothers in the 1940’s and 50s had simpler foods, cooked from “scratch”, nothing was pre-processed, many had organic gardens and did not have plastics or had to deal with as many chemicals in the environment. They also did not have synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy or birth control pills. The breast cancer rate back then was 1 in 28, some third world non-industrial countries like Pakistan have a 1/35 rate. Perhaps there is some very valuable wisdom that we can now benefit from. Young men who take jobs as landscapers and who are exposed to sprays/ chemicals are finding that their sperm counts are lower and they may have difficulty having children later in life. Trying to be more aware and learn to take action to avoid more of the estrogen mimickers that we may be using in our homes, consuming or using as body products will help us lessen our risk and improve the health of our families. Becoming more active in your community and also politically to have companies that are polluting our environment stop doing so would seem to be an excellent course of action. See the links section for ways to become more active by joining the Breast Cancer Action group or other environmental groups. If that all sounds too overwhelming to become politically active, then perhaps “acting locally and thinking globally” and start by decreasing these chemicals in your own home and environment is a great start.

The Waves of Serenity CD/ DVD was created by Ingrid Edstrom FNP, M. Ed. as a companion product for her upcoming book "Help your Family Cope With Hospitalization, Surgery and Cancer Therapy Using Mind Body Approaches". You can go to her other web site at InnerJourneysHealing.com to experience a sound clip and video sample then you can choose to have a CD or a DVD sent to you as part of the program to decrease cortisol, stress and insomnia. The Waves of Serenity narrative was created for people who did not have any previous exposure to meditation techniques but were facing surgery, chemotherapy or recovering at home and wanted a way to decrease pain and stress or to be able to get to sleep easier.
