To educate women globally in ways to reduce their risk of breast cancer and prevent its recurrence
All women actively protect the health of their breasts to decrease the personal and global impact of breast cancer
The Healthy Breast Program was developed by Sat Dharam Kaur, N.D., as first described in her books, A Call to Women: The Healthy Breast Program and Workbook, published in 2000; and The Complete Natural Medicine Guide to Breast Cancer, published in 2003. Sat Dharam has been educating women in aspects of the Healthy Breast Program since she graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine 1989, and now teaches the program internationally. She also trains others to teach the program.
The Healthy Breast Program is an intensive twelve-part learning program designed to educate women and girls in strategies to prevent breast cancer and to assist recovery from the disease using natural therapies in conjunction with conventional diagnostic and treatment options. The Healthy Breast Program encompasses lifestyle, diet, nutritional therapies, breathing practices, kundalini yoga, meditation, exercise and psychospiritual work.
The Healthy Breast Program is comprised of three learning streams, each consisting of 12 modules: 1) the Healthy Breast Foundations program; 2) the Healthy Breast Yoga Program and; 3) the Healthy Breast Practitioner Program.
The Healthy Breast Foundations Program
The twelve modules of the Healthy Breast Foundations Program are:
The Healthy Breast Foundations Program is accessible to everyone and is recommended as the pre-requisite for the Healthy Breast Practitioner Program and the Healthy Breast Yoga Program.
The Healthy Breast Foundations Program is available in three formats:
The Healthy Breast Yoga Program, is accessible to all but is also designed as a training program for KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teachers to teach and educate women about breast health using a 12 module yoga series.
The Healthy Breast Practitioner Program, provides more detailed information on treatment strategies and is designed for health care practitioners such as MDs, NDs, DCs, nutritionists, nurses, massage therapists, acupuncturists, osteopaths and herbalists.
We teach the Healthy Breast Practitioner Program annually at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto to licensed health care practitioners to help standardize an effective naturopathic program in breast cancer prevention. We share current research and best practices.
We offer the Healthy Breast Foundations Program and the Healthy Breast Yoga Program to:
1) women and girls who want to prevent breast cancer
2) women who have increased breast density or those who are at higher risk of breast cancer
3) women newly diagnosed
4) women who are undergoing or have completed conventional treatments
5) licensed health care practitioners, yoga teachers and/or institutions who want to learn more and/or utilize our resources to help their clients and students.
6) Kundalini Yoga teachers who want to teach the Healthy Breast Yoga Program
We train and certify women, Kundalini Yoga teachers and health care practitioners to educate others about the Healthy Breast Program so that together our efforts decrease the magnitude of the current breast cancer epidemic.
