Fibrocystic Breasts - Conditions & Cures Info with Proven Effective Supplements Listed

Our Price:





· Breast lumps, nodules, or cysts that usually occur in both breasts

· Breast tenderness or pain

· Fluctuating size of breast lumps

· Cyclical increase in breast pain, lumps, or nodules in the two weeks before menstrual flow


· Hormonal imbalance particularly estrogen dominance, in which the estrogen level is relatively too high compared to the progesterone level

· Low thyroid hormone

· Poor function of liver, which metabolizes hormones and plays a role in hormone balance

· Constipation, possibly due to reabsorption of hormones in the colon

· Poor diet, particularly one deficient in fruits and vegetables, and excessive in caffeine and omega-6 fatty acids

· Deficiencies in nutrients such as iodine, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E

Recommended Food

A high-fiber diet is recommended because it promotes the elimination of excess estrogen.

A diet focused on plant foods are most effective, including whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, olives, and seaweed.

Essential fatty acid balance is important. Cold-water fish, such as salmon or sardines, is recommended twice weekly for inflammation-reducing omega-3 fatty acids. Olive oil is also recommended on salads.

Fermented soy foods (tofu, natto, miso tempeh) have been shown to have a hormone-balancing effect on the breasts. Consume two or more servings weekly.

A one to two week detoxification program can be helpful to cleanse the colon and the liver. Also, a three-day vegetable juice fast once a month can be beneficial. You can supplement your fast with plenty of green drinks and cleansing herbal teas.

Foods to Avoid

It is important to avoid caffeine (coffee, soda, and chocolate), because studies show such avoidance to be helpful. We find that it makes some difference for most women with this condition.

Prescription for Natural Cures by James F. Balch and Mark Stengler

Super Prescription # 1 Natural progesterone cream – LifeSource Product Apply ¼ teaspoon (20 mg) to breasts and inner wrists one or two times daily from ovulation until the start of menses.

Super Prescription # 2 Vitex – LifeSource Product Take 160 ti 240 mg or 40 drops of the tincture every day of the month for at least three months. This herb works to balance a woman’s progesterone and prolactin levels. Do not use if you are taking birth control pills.

Super Prescription # 3 Vitamin E – LifeSource Product Some studies show that this vitamin reduces breast tenderness. Part of this benefit may come as a result of its role in estrogen metabolism. Take 800 to 1,200 IU daily for at least two months to see if it is helpful.

Super Prescription # 4 Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) Take 200 to 400 mg daily of GLA. It is available by itself or as part of evening primrose oil, borage oil, or black currant oil.

Super Prescription # 5 Iodine Take 500 mg daily. Higher dosages and topical applications can be effective, too. Consult a holistic doctor.

Super Prescription # 6 Indole-3-carbinol(I3C) or Diindolylmethane (DIM) Take 300 mg of I3C or 200 mg of DIM. These substances are extracts from cruciferous vegetables that support detoxification of excess estrogen in the body.

Super Prescription # 7 Dandelion root Take 300 mg or 30 drops of tincture three times daily with meals for two months. This improves the liver’s detoxification of excess estrogen.

General Recommendations

Probiotics – LifeSource Product Take as directed on the label. Provides friendly flora involved in estrogen metabolism and excretion in the colon.
