Breast Health

The Healthy Breast Program

Our Mission: 

To educate women globally in ways to reduce their risk of breast cancer and prevent its recurrence

Our Vision: 

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.

What is the Healthy Breast 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:

  1. Introduction to the Healthy Breast Program
  2. Getting to Know Your Breasts
  3. Improving Lymphatic Circulation
  4. Understanding the Hormone Puzzle
  5. Healing the Earth, Healing Ourselves
  6. Dietary Guidelines for Breast Health
  7. Nutritional Strategies for Breast Health
  8. Detoxification Strategies for Whole Body Health
  9. Empowering Your Immune System
  10. Reclaiming Your Gifts and Igniting Your Passion and Purpose
  11. Living with Gratitude, Meaning and Prayer
  12. Living as a Radiant Woman

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:

  1. A weekend or retreat course with Sat Dharam Kaur ND or Julie Groulx RMT in person, including the Healthy Breast Foundations manual.
  2. The online Healthy Breast Foundations Webinar 12 week series, which includes notes for each of the modules, a recorded webinar with Sat Dharam Kaur ND, a recorded video of a meditation and/or yoga set for each of the modules, and an hour long facilitated group discussion via Skype.
  3. A self-study program utilizing the online Healthy Breast Foundations Webinar series, without group facilitation.

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.

Who can take the Healthy Breast Program?

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.

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.
