The Healthy Breast Program is an intensive twelve-part learning program designed to educate individuals in strategies to prevent breast cancer and to assist recovery from the disease using natural therapies in conjunction with conventional allopathic diagnostic and treatment options. The twelve parts of the program include:
- Introduction to the Healthy Breast Program
- Getting to Know Your Breasts
- Improving Lymphatic Circulation
- Understanding the Hormone Puzzle
- Healing the Earth, Healing Ourselves
- Dietary Guidelines for Breast Health
- Nutritional Strategies for Breast Health
- Detoxification Strategies for Whole Body Health

- Reclaiming Your Gifts and Igniting Your Passion and Purpose
- Living with Gratitude, Meaning and Prayer
- Living as a Radiant Woman
To address different needs and levels of expertise we have developed three streams of learning:
1) the Healthy Breast Foundations Program, which covers the basics of the 12 modules and is accessible to everyone;
2) the Healthy Breast Practitioner's Program, which provides more detailed information on treatment strategies - this program is designed for health care practitioners such as MDs, NDs, DCs, nutritionists, nurses, massage therapists, acupuncturists, osteopaths, herbalists;
3) the Healthy Breast Yoga Program, accessible to all but also designed as a training program for KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teachers to teach and educate women about breast health.
The Healthy Breast Program is designed for the following participants:
- individuals interested in breast cancer prevention for themselves or family members
- women (or men) recently diagnosed with breast cancer
- women (or men) who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the past and want to do everything they can to stay healthy
- licensed health care professionals including MDs, NDs, nutritional consultants, dentists, chiropractors, homeopaths, acupuncturists, aromatherapists and massage therapists who want to familiarize themselves with valuable information for their patients and clients
