Have you ever found a lump in your breast? Last month I saw what looked like a bruise on my left breast and it was sore to the touch. I had just had a mammogram two months before that so I was not worried about the bruise until I felt the lump. I told my husband about it and he said, “just call the doctor.”
I went to work the next day and worried about the lump the whole time I was there. I had a doctor’s appointment that afternoon so afterwards, I went to the mammography clinic at a nearby hospital and almost lost it when the assistant said yes, I should go to the doctor even after a recent mammogram. She assured me that most lumps are nothing and to try not to worry, just make that appointment. Luckily, my doctor saw me right away and I did find out that it was just fibrous tissue and I don’t have cancer. At that point, I started looking for alternative health strategies for breast issues and there are many.
As I’ve said before, the best medicine is prevention so always do your monthly breast exam. When you’ve done that, you should firm and tone your breasts. To exercise the pectoral muscles, grip opposite hands or wrists and push your arms together so they are pushing against each other, thus exercising the pecs. Then massage the whole breast area in a circular motion once a day. Use the following formula for this massage oil: combine 5 drops geranium, 10 drops lemongrass, 5 drops parsley seed, 5 drops carrot oil and 5 drops clary-sage. Add this mixture to 2 tablespoons sweet almond oil.
