1. Get Liver Support

Your liver is the main detox system. It not only removes environmental toxins, but it removes old estrogen from the body. When the liver is not working at its best, it can leave our bodies with too much estrogen, which can lead to breast pain.  Get your liver back into good working order by eating a healthy diet that includes plenty of greens such as broccoli, kale, collards, and Brussels sprouts. You can also take herbs that support healthy liver function such as milk thistle, dandelion, and Greater celandine.

 

2. Ice

For immediate relief from breast pain, you can always rely on ice packs. Ice will reduce the swelling, ease the pain, and numb the area. Use one of the readymade ice packs for sale at most grocery stores and pharmacies or simply place a few ice cubes in a plastic bag, then wrap them in a wash cloth. Apply the ice pack to each breast for 10 minutes at a time. Repeat several times each day until your breasts feel better.

 

3. Reduce Excess Estrogen Exposure

Unfortunately, our modern day environment is so filled with estrogens that it has affected almost every living thing on the planet. Many fish are changing from male to female due to the run off from pharmaceutical companies. The best ways to avoid exposure to estrogens in the environment is to avoid plastic packaging and dishes. Always eat organic foods, including meat and dairy products. Avoid pesticides and herbicides as well as estrogen based birth control methods if possible.

4. Flax Seeds

Flax seeds are a great source of phytoestrogens. This means that they replace stronger, natural hormones with weaker, plant based ones that do not stimulate the breasts as much. Flax seeds need to be ground to release their powerful compounds. If you buy fresh flax seeds, be sure to grind them before consumption. Consume two tablespoons of ground flax seeds in your daily diet. Add flax seeds to vegetable dishes, yogurt, oatmeal, or smoothies. They have a nutty taste most people enjoy.
