At this time of year, many people are wondering what kind of gifts they want to share with their family and friends. Although I personally do not participate in gift giving at this time of year, we get many requests about ideas for gifts revolving around health. Here are a few of my favorite gifts for healthy breasts, mind, body, and spirit! One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and everyone in your life is vibrant health! These gifts also support small(er) businesses, so their products aren’t stuck in big multinational ships and supply chains. As my gift to you, I included special links for discounts on several of my favorite things!** Happy shopping!
The Dr. V’s 2021 Healthy Breasts and Healthy Life Gift List
#1 Self Decode. Personalized health recommendations based on your genes and labs.
Buy HERE. Use code: Veronique10 for 10% off!
One of my mantras is: Test! Don’t guess and stress! An insightful and actionable way to start your healing journey, learn about your unique body, and prevent future health issues is by taking a SelfDecode DNA Test. There are many types of genetic screening and DNA tests for health across the internet. SelfDecode is what I use for myself and clients because they never stop researching and updating their information that is personalized just for you, based on your genetics. Their team is overflowing with world-class doctors and scientists, all scouring hundreds of peer-reviewed studies each week to bring you the newest findings from the cutting edge of genetics research. Learn more about SelfDecode tests in this recent blog post.
#2 Four Sigmatic. Functional mushroom coffee.
As you know, I am a huge fan of using the delicious powers of mushrooms to heal breast cancer and ignite a healthier life! The founder of Four Sigmatic is a 13th generation mushroom farmer from Finland and is now bringing the feel-good Nordic traditions to over 65 countries worldwide! Mushroom coffee will get your brain going with Lion’s Mane mushrooms, support your immune functions with Chaga mushrooms, help you power through the day with steady energy, and it is organic and fair-trade! All the perks of coffee, without the jitters and crashes!
#3 Dynamic Green Wheatgrass. Organic, unpasteurized, non-GMO’ed wheatgrass juice.
I have been drinking wheatgrass for almost 4 decades because of all the health benefits that just one shot a day provides! Here are just a few. Drinking 1 ounce equals eating 2.5 pounds of organic vegetables! Seriously! Wheatgrass is an extremely concentrated form of Chlorophyll that down-regulates the signaling pathways of growing cancer cells. Growing your own wheatgrass is possible but takes lots of time and energy, and you need to be careful about mold in your trays. Therefore, I highly recommend buying from Dynamic Greens as it is grown outdoors and provides the cleanest and highest quality wheatgrass I have found.
#4 Manta Sleep Eye Mask. 100% darkness guaranteed.
Consistent, quality sleep is one of the most important aspects of living a life full of energy and vibrant health. In fact, a study published in the Cancer Research journal found that not getting a good night’s sleep can actually accelerate the growth of tumors! External light can significantly interfere with the quality of your sleep and can cause sleep interruptions throughout the night. The Manta Sleep Eye Mask is a unique solution for helping you get some quality z’s! It comes with adjustable eyecups, made from breathable materials, and is personalized to fit the unique contours of your face. I love my Manta Mask because their eyecups are big and soft and they completely block out the light.
#5 EMF Protection. Safely use phones, computers, laptops…everything!
Because of their incredible research, I have personally and professionally used these products for over 15 years and tested their technology on hundreds of people. GIA is the brainchild of Russian scientist Dr. Igor Smirnov. Smirnov spent many years researching the communities affected by radiation poisoning after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. Eventually, Dr. Smirnov discovered a type of “passive noise technology” that transforms EMF waves from cell phones and other wireless devices in a safe and very effective way. “Electro-pollution,” – ongoing exposure to harmful EMFs, can be a silent killer. It may be one of the many triggers for breast cancer. Non-ionizing radiation can cause damage at the DNA level and severely lower the production of Melatonin, a cytotoxic hormone. I recommend protection for your cell phone, home phone, computers, electronic devices, and wearing a pendant to protect your bio-field.
Qi Technology – Waveguard EMF Protection. Buy HERE
When I brought this technology into my home, I felt an immediate feeling of calm and relaxation. The torus field it generates is very powerful. All of the EMF protection devices fit perfectly into your life and provide 24/7 protection against all EMF fields, including 5G! Larger devices, like the Qi Max™ and Qi Home Cell™, can be left in your home or office and transform any space into an EMF-free sanctuary. Portable devices, like the Qi Me™ and Qi Shield™, protect you from EMFs while you travel and are so small you’ll hardly notice they are there.
#6 Heart Math Inner Balance App. Unlock the power of your heart.
The body cannot begin to truly heal until we learn how to manage chronic stress. A key part of my 7 Essentials System® is learning the skills to lower stress so that healing hormones can kick in! Measuring your heart rate variability is a great way to balance your heart energy, communicate calm and healing thoughts from your heart to the rest of your body and get the most out of your meditations. HeartMath has been at the forefront of the most advanced research regarding stress and your Heart Rate Variability (HRT) for over 30 years! . HRT can be a crucial indicator of your body’s stress responses. Inner Balance measures your HRT to see if you are in the Fight or Flight mode. You can then use this information to breathe “through your heart” as you focus on positive feelings such as joy, gratitude, and peace. You can literally “see” how your nervous system responds as you get into relaxation mode. This technology really supported me in my second healing journey since I spent way too much time in the stress response every day. To learn more, check out this insightful blog post about HRT and breast cancer.
#7 Young Living. Pure essential oils.
Hormonal imbalance can show itself in a variety of ways – weight gain, low libido, fatigue, mood swings, insomnia, or just feeling “off.” If you want to prevent hormonal imbalance that can lead to breast cancer, using essential oils to soothe, relax, and re-balance may be just what your body, mind, and soul needs. Essential 3 is all about balancing your energy, and a great way to do this is with Essential 6, repairing your body with therapeutic plants! However, not all essential oils provide the same healing benefits. Some of created with toxic fillers and substitutes, which is why I buy from Young Living. They developed its groundbreaking Seed to Seal® standard that ensures verifiable purity and authenticity in each drop of essential oil.
#8 My Breast Friend™. At-home Breast Self-exams. Use the code MBFGIFT for 20% off at check out.

#9 Primal Organics. Chemical-free teeth whitening – LED System.
Embrace Biological Dentistry is Essential 5. Your teeth are an intricate part of your body…not a separate entity that can be drilled, daily washed, and stuffed with toxic poisons, without having an impact on the rest of your body. But, let’s be honest, we all want a dazzling smile. This is why I love Primal Organics! They provide a chemical-free, at-home LED system that provides a whiter and healthier smile in just a few days!
#10 Joovv. Red Light and Near-Infrared Light Therapy
Buy HERE. Use code BCC for $50 off.
The grand finale!! I find the science behind red light and near-infrared light therapy incredibly fascinating! Discover all the details in this recent blog post. Some of the health benefits include rejuvenating the endocrine system, lowering inflammation, boosting collagen and healthy stem cell production, and reducing pain. My favorite source for red light therapy devices is called Joovv because they offer the latest state-of-the-art technology in RLT at affordable price points. They offer different size tools and payment plans so that you can find what you need at a price point that works for you. I love their handheld devices as they are great for targeted areas. Their full-body units can help with sleep, overall rejuvenation, recovery from injury, mental alertness, and so much more!
