Natural and TCM Approach to Breast Health

The most important approach to breast health is awareness and prevention. Regular breast self-exams is a significant start. Simple habits in addition to self-exams can help protect your breasts, such as adding herbs and supplements to your diet that benefit breast health. 

According to TCM approach to breast health, the liver meridian links to the breast. Liver qi congestion can cause a variety of issues such as pain, distention, and masses. Emotion is an important part of breast health as well, and anger, frustration, and stress can all counteract breast health. 

Trying to avoid stress on a daily basis is crucial; meditation and yoga have been shown to help with relaxation. Self-massage can improve the flow of blood and restore the flow of energy to the breast. Eating cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage can lower risk of breast issues as well. Reduce consumption of alcohol and caffeine, and switch to green tea to receive the benefits of its antioxidant properties. 

Western approaches also include a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables and limiting caffeine and alcohol. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish or flaxseed oils along, with a good multivitamin high in vitamin E is also recommended. Regular exercise for at least 45 minutes per day can help boost immune function, maintain a healthy weight, support normal glucose metabolism, and lower levels of estrogen. 

Maintaining awareness of small changes in your breasts throughout menstruation cycles in an excellent way to understand how your body works, and self-exams can provide early detection of any issues.
