Learn how to treat women interested in maintaining or improving the health of their breasts with diet, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, acupuncture, detoxification strategies, immune building regimens and hormone balancing protocols. Learn which diagnostic tests - blood, saliva, urine you can use to better assess risk factors for breast cancer and to follow a woman's health progress. Learn how to work as a team with medical doctors, physiotherapists, lymphatic drainage specialists and when to refer. Become skilled as a healing resource for women to turn to for breast health advice and coaching.
