Breast cancer is the number one most common cancer (other than skin cancer) in women in the United States.  Approximately 1 in 9 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.  And it seems that women are being diagnosed at an earlier and earlier age.

So on this episode of the Holistic Plastic Surgery Show, we’re going to do a deep dive into holistic options for breast cancer prevention and early detection, and reveal how you can use the concept of epigenetics to control your destiny.

Cosmetic surgery is the Wild West of Medicine.

It seems every day I read a new story about popular cosmetic procedures that we used to believe were safe and effective, only to realize that they have complications we hadn’t known about.  There are also cosmetic treatments being touted as the newest, best thing, but in reality, just don’t work.

So, for this podcast, I’ve compiled a list of seven popular cosmetic treatments that I highly recommend you avoid.  These seven are part of my Holistic Beauty Blacklist.  They are among the most popular cosmetic treatments today, but I do not recommend them due to their risks of death, disfigurement, or the fact that they just don’t work.

Yet, shockingly, they are being performed every day all over the country, often by inexperienced hands.  This is a scary episode, but one that should be listened to by anyone considering going under the knife or needle.  Please join me as I reveal The Holistic Beauty Blacklist – Popular Cosmetic Treatments to Avoid.
