Iodine relieves breast pain

One of the most exciting parts of my work is the interesting people I meet and the things I learn from each and every one of them. A common complaint is breast pain. Swollen, tender, lumpy breasts can occur with your menstrual cycle or intermittently, for varying lengths of time, and at any stage of life. The number one reason women visit my clinic is breast pain, that’s 40% of women.

Often, when a woman has breast pain, she will be frightened and fear the worst. But pain dose not mean cancer.

Breast pain is caused by the fluctuation of lymphatic fluids. During your menstrual cycle, there is a build up of fluid in your uterus and your breasts due to inflammatory hormonal changes. When you get your period, some of this fluid leaves your body (when you menstruate). However, the fluid in other parts of your body, like in your breasts, has to be reabsorbed before it can be eliminated.

If you no longer menstruate, it’s still possible for inflammatory hormonal changes to affect your body. This could occur if you eat inflammatory foods, like highly-processed, chemical-laden, or high-glycemic foods. It also occurs when you’re under chronic stress for prolonged periods.

Daily iodine intake can help many women with breast pain. Iodine decreases the ability of estrogen to adhere to estrogen receptors in the breast. And can greatly reduce breast pain and lumps.

Iodine supplementation

Women usually see changes within only two weeks. I recommend 2-7 drops of lugols iodine on the wrists morning and night, kelp supplements, or sea vegetables.

It is also important to note that you can get a reaction, a rash. This is because fluoride and bromide are detoxing from the body.
