Integrative Breast Wellness Program


The Integrative Breast Wellness Program is a collaborative initiative between Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute and Pacific Breast Care Center at UCI Health.

Our comprehensive, whole-person approach to breast health considers a number of important factors including diet, lifestyle, environmental exposures, stress, and hormones.  If you have any breast symptoms such as breast pain or inflammation (chronic or cyclical), have dense and/or fibrocystic breasts, or if you are at increased risk of breast disease including cancer, this program is for you.


  • Any individual with breast pain, dense breast tissue, cysts, history of breast surgery without history of or active breast cancer
  • Any individual with symptoms of hormone imbalance including breast tenderness, menstrual irregularities, cyclical symptoms including sleep difficulty, irritability, and/or water retention
  • Any individuals with increased risk of breast disease due to personal or family history


The Integrative Breast Wellness Program takes a more comprehensive look at risk factors and provides expanded options for disease prevention and treatment.  Some areas that are more closely evaluated include:

  • Dietary and lifestyle factors and influences
  • Environmental exposures
  • Hormones including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and/or thyroid
  • Nutrient status and micronutrient deficiencies
  • Factors that influence genetic predisposition
  • Immune system function including inflammation
  • Stress and the stress response
