We at Healthy Chick® recognize breast cancer for what it is – the leading cause of death among women ages 35 to 50 in the United States. The devastation this cancer causes women, their families, and friends weighs heavily on our hearts. That weight is lightened, however, by the self-empowerment we’ve seen with education and the joy we’ve experienced when a loved one has come through their illness and thrived. Personal experience has shown us what a plague cancer is on society, but we’ve also seen those close to us take control of their lives and their disease (dis-ease)…and win!
We pride ourselves in being a socially responsible company, forming lasting relationships with our female clients. As we promote health and well being, it is a matter of course that we also address breast cancer through education and preventive measures. Many cancers are directly linked to physiological and environmental stressors – not to mention psychological stress – and we can change these realities in our lives!
The Healthy Chick® lifestyle naturally increases the protective factors that avoid and fight cancer. Our nutrition and fitness programs combat carcinogens by keeping excess weight off and promoting a plant-based diet. Healthy Chick® hair and skin care products protect consumers from the harmful additives and pesticides often found in other body care products and known to be environmental stressors contributing to tumor growth. Further, our products are bottled in glass rather than petroleum-based plastics. This keeps chemicals out of the air and our consumers’ bodies. Equally important, our Self Care program emphasizes a mind and body approach to self-empowerment and centeredness that alleviates physiological and psychological stress.
Our founder, Kim Sheridan, is a Naturopath and is the co-author of a raw food (un-)cookbook. She and her husband founded a nutritional supplement company to produce supplements of the finest quality – some of which, in addition to their intended benefits, fight carcinogens. That is to say, we are dedicated and capable of joining forces with you and the other Warrior Chicks™ out there to alleviate suffering from breast cancer.
To this end we are launching a breast cancer fund. A portion of our proceeds will go towards education and prevention of breast cancer. We support The Cancer Project and their parent organization, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). This organization is not only making great strides in the battle against cancer but is leading the way in the abolition of the cruel and unnecessary practice of animal testing.
Healthy Chick® is committed to positive values and ethical practices that promote a better world. Accordingly, we are strongly opposed to animal testing. Our world is in need of more compassion, not more pain, for both humans and animals. There are humane research methods available for those doing cancer research, and we strongly encourage those testing products or cancer treatments to seek alternative methods.
We believe things like animal testing weigh so heavily on our collective consciousness as humans that they contribute to the existence of illness in the first place. As a world community, we need to work towards a day when cancer is not developing in our bodies rather than attempting to cure it once it has already taken hold. This, in addition to lessening the environmental risk factors for cancer, is something we must embark upon together.
