Mama Palooza LIV Aid Giveaway

Breast cancer health is vitally important as a woman and there is great controversy going on right now about the use of mammograms. Early detection is also so important because when breast cancer is caught in the very early stages there is a 95% survival and health rate (within 5 years of catching it) according to Dr. Ernie Bodai.

Self-exams are what bring women to the doctor much quicker than any other source of detection. You have to be an advocate for your health and take care of yourself! Actress,singer and breast cancer survivor Olivia Newton-John joined forces with BHS International to create a self-exam aid that would make self-exams much easier. According to livaid.com: The LIV is a self-examination aid that is designed to help women examine their breast tissue. It molds to the skin and provides a smooth surface for the fingers to easily glide over the breast tissue.


I was sent a LIV Aid after I contacted the company for a review. I had seen Olivia on an episode of The Doctors (click to view her demonstration on the show). Not only did they send me ONE but they sent me TWO LIV Aids. Which means one of you is going to get a wonderful gift to help with self-protection and self-detection!

My personal experience - the LIV Aid is so cute, shaped like a heart! It comes in a special packaging to protect it when not in use. It is squishy, like a plastic bag filled with liquid. I did a self exam as instructed and found that my breast tissue was magnified using the device. Having larger breasts this is really important to me as it can be more difficult to detect lumps. Think of it this way: it's like having very blurry vision your whole life and then getting prescription glasses to see clearly. The LIV opens up your sense of touch to help in detecting possible lumps.

Of course the LIV is not guaranteed to detect breast cancer or lumps - there is always room for user error and it is up to us, as individuals, to do the exams monthly and to get to know each of our own breasts as individuals as well. No two breasts are ever alike and breast tissue will differ. It may take time to get used to using the LIV and to get to know your breasts. It is recommended that women begin these exams when they are 20-years-old. And finally a self-exam aid is never intended to substitute good medical care so keep your regular check-ups as well!

Right now you can get two LIVs and instructional video for $20 plus S/H by visiting their online shop.
