Breast Sensitivity Remedies

Posted by Anna (Europe) on 05/04/2013

Hi Timh, Thanks for the info. I actually saw an article which says that carotenoid supplements may be harmful so I am thinking of sticking to including them in my diet naturally, but I cannot seem to find the link to post.

I don't know if you buy your supplements from iherb but if you ever visit iherb.com I am wondering would you take a look at these two products for me and give me your opinion. I had never heard of red palm oil before. I am wondering if you have an opinion on these products in relation to my complaint.

http://www.iherb.com/North-American-Herb-Spice-Co-BetaPalm-African-Red-Palm-Oil-8-fl-oz-240-ml/47681

http://www.iherb.com/North-American-Herb-Spice-Co-CocaPalm-Virgin-Coconut-Red-Palm-Oil-8-fl-oz-240-ml/15399

You also mention that seaweeds and algaes have loads of carotenoids, would this include spirulina. I am wondering if this is a chelator as I do have mercury fillings and would be sceptical about taking it if so.

Thanks again.

Anna: Yes, I have been a long-time iherb customer and recommend their products and service highly.

The two products you linked look to be a most excellent source of natural antioxidants. The addition of Coconut oil should be a big boost to overall health as it is beneficial in sooo many ways to the human body. As for seaweed and algae, I personally take one each tab of Spirulina and Chlorella daily; but if u can find a good "seaweed complex" that contains other species, try that. You can also purchase as a powder and make smoothies or simply add to veggie juicing.

Don't forget to add some Pumpkin Seeds and Brazil Nuts so the Carotinoids and Tocotreinols can "complex" and get the real power of antioxidants in your tissues and cells.

Let us know when your better!

Thanks, Tim. Does yourself or anybody else know the difference say quality, bacterial, otherwise between an ingredient that is described as raw or likewise crude. Is one a safer option than the other. Thankyou

Anna: Sorry I failed to address your concern with Mercury toxicity. To keep heavy metal levels low in the body it is advised to consume Chlorella and Cilantro. The sensitivity you expressed could be related to Mercury.

As to the safety of product ingredients, there are extreme views from very safe to "all supplements are tainted". At any rate, I consider supplements to be as safe as the foods we eat. If you are concerned with toxicity issues read the E.C. page on "Detoxification". Keeping the body clean on the inside is our best defense against chronic illnesses. Keeping antioxidant status high is critical.

Thanks Timh. I have actually decided not to go with the Palm Oil products as mentioned before, as I see that it is recommended to go with a broad mix of carotenoids, rather than high numbers of the same carotenoid. Also said that a survey showed that men who took carotenoid supplements had a higher risk of prostate cancer and I thought that maybe this might transfer for women, so I won't be supplementing or adding products. I think that I will just stick to your opinion of adding veggies and boosting with zinc for maximum potency- genius! . Thanks again for your advice, seems you are nearly running the show! Good Luck and Best Wishes to you.

Hi, I am in my twenties and my endocrinologist has told me that I have a breast sensitivity issue. I am wondering if this is the same as an inflammation problem. Does anybody know what causes this. I think my hormones are o.k. And my periods are regular so I don't want to mess with this. Are there any foods that I can add/eliminate or an lifestyle issues that I can address to resolve this.

Anna: Anytime I hear the word "sensitivity" it most likely indicates a very low antioxidant nutrients status. Try to find a "Carotenoid Complex" one per day with meal. Also, a good Vit-E supplement you can find; Mixed Tocotreinols & Tocopherols is best; take w/ meal away from the Cara.

Thankyou Timh for your feedback. You are very good. I'm not much into supplements, however, if needs must Do you know what foods I might find the carotenoid complex in. What does the "cara" refer to. Thank you once again.

Anna: Yes, sorry I simply find it much easier to supplement. Cara is a class of naturally occurring antioxidants that must be supplied in the diet. The dark color of fruits & veggies indicates the presence of carotinoids. Beta Carotene (body converts to Vit-A) is abundant in Carrots, Dandelion Root, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Squash. Lycopene is abundant in Tomato paste. Luteine is abundant in Spinach and Marigold. Many Seaweeds and Algae's have an abundance of carotinoids. Vit-E is very not abundant in most foods with the exception of Palm Kernel Oil and Wheat Germ (Oil). Adding the whole powdered Wheat Germ to foods is an excellent boost to traditional recipe (has been used for yrs by athletes). Also E is abundant in the seeds of Annotto of the Achiote tree.

*Important* To catalyze or boost the antioxidant potential of the Carotinoids, supplement Zinc. Selenium potentates the Vit-E. Pumpkin Seeds are the only significant source of Zinc. Brazil Nuts are the only significant source of Selenium.

My daughter had breast lumps which developed when she started contraception they were worrying her so I got her to lie in bed with a smearing of castor oil over the area and a oil soaked woollen rag over it then plastic wrap over it then we placed a covered hot water bottle over the area, she fell asleep and within about an hour she called me to her room and the area had large red areas following the veins around the sides of her breast abit like welts but not raised. I believe it was the lumps dissolving. The lumps went away completely after doing this once. I got this information to do this from the Edgar Cayce site. Hope this helps someone.


Detoxing From Mammograms

I am due to have a mammogram. I have both positive and negative feelings about it. I would be interested in hearing both pros and cons and also is there something I can do to protect myself from the radiation?

I remember reading somewhere that pectin works for radiation. It was given to orphans in the nuclear disasters in Japan. They were one of the least affected by the radiation exposure.


Detoxing From Mammograms
Posted by JD (NY, NY) on 11/12/2008

I had a mammogram yesterday for a possible cyst or nodule on one of my breasts, which are already fibrocystic. 8 x-rays were done on one side, 2 on the other (the radiologist was really thorough). Luckily it appears that all is okay, but today I can absolutely feel the effects of the radiation, especially around my throat for some reason. The lymphs in my throat are slightly swollen. I am taking vitamin c, may even do a few cold showers, but does anyone have any other suggestions to get rid of the radiation? Thanks so much.

I really have problems about the x ray system. Normally you can't take more then 1 x rays. Cancer tend to be malignant after exposure to them and that is not reassuring to use test to confirm that it is not, but with exposure it is.

The effects of radiation is a real bummer. Usually the thymus gland is reduced by 1/2 after a brief exposure using the mammography and x rays. The effects of radiation exposure can be minimized with sodium thiosulfate (one crystal in a liter of drinking water), a lot of sodium ascorbate vitamin C 1000-2000 mg, and lots of baking soda. SSKI is fine, but it works along with Magnesium like Siamese twins.

MSM may reduce some effects of radiation too by its ability to remove some damaged cells by oxygenating them and providing them with sulfur. MSM 500 x 3 I believe will neutralize most of these free radical radiation. However to prevent DNA damage an amino acid L-Carnosine 500 mg x 4, which will protect the DNA from damages as it protects the DNA from changes. In fact in a research study in petri dishes, the scientist managed to stop cancer growth COMPLETELY after adding carnosine for a three week period. In practice, we need to take carnosine for three times more then the research study reveals, which is about 9 week at least since the body tend to neutralize the carnosine with carnosinase. In a research they found carnosine protected about 68% of DNA and chromosome damages.

There is much controversy now that mammograms can actually fail to identify cysts accurately, as well as cause cancers of the breast. You might want to visit Mercola's site to read about this. Another thing I suggest is that you google potassium iodide (SSKI) and pull up Dr. Wright's Tahoma Clinic reference. I believe that he recommends SSKI for cyst/fibroids among other things. I think you might also find what he thinks about mammograms.

My suggestion on lumps is to tell you about my personal experience. While working on getting my MSN as a nurse practitioner at VUSN, we did breast exams on each other. My student lab partner was so upset with the multiple lumps in my breast that she quickly ran to get the head of the Nurse Practitioner program to come verify what she found. Our program director was also upset with the multiple lumps in my breast and asked me if had ever had a doctor check them out or if I did breast exams on myself monthly. I wasn't upset at all.

I just laughed and told both of them that the answer to both questions was no, because when you had as many lumps as I had in my breast that it was impossible to tell when a new one joined the crowd so I didn't waste my time checking for them. Also told them that I wasn't about to let somebody start trying to remove them because I wouldn't have any breast at all if you removed all my lumps. One thing I did add to thevitamins/minerals I was taking was 400 IU of vitamin E daily and wasn't aware that they were disappearing until one day while bathing, I happened to notice while washing my breast -HEY - NO LUMPS ANYMORE!! Still none today and they have been gone for 20+ years. You might want to start taking Vit E 400 IU's 2 or 3 times s day. However if you are on blood thinners for any reason, make sure it doesn't create a problem there.

Another question is, is there a family history of breast cancer in your family? If not, the probability is low for you unless you are eating a lot of processed foods which are heavily laden with MSG and aspartame. If so, please google excitotoxins and print out that list of names they hide MSG under in the ingredients lists,
and work on eliminating both MSG and aspartame from your foods. I have to agree with Dr. Russell Blaylock who wrote the book Excitotoxins:The Taste That Kills on MSG and aspartame being the major cause of headaches, brain tumors, brain cancers, ALS, Alzheimers, seizures, Parkinson's disease and a few others. He only writes on what they do to the brain & CNS. When cancer strikes it is going to hit the weaker areas of your body, and if they can cause cancer in one part of the body they can cause them elsewhere in the body.

I don't know your family situation, but if you have children and breast fed them the probability of cancer is lessened also. In the nurse practitioner program we were told that the lowest incidence of breast cancer was among the nuns, but the highest incidence was among women who had children but didn't breast feed them.

PS. In the future, please limit the excess shots on any mammograms, xrays, or MRI's etc. as excessive radiation is also known to cause cancer. I know the radiologist thought she was doing you a favor, but again, I'll get personal and tell you what the doctors at Mayo Clinic told my brother in l982 while treating him for melanoma of head & throat: "It would be almost impossible to prove but excessive dental xrays are probably what caused your cancer". My brother said everytime he went into the dentist office he got at least one or more dental xrays for years. Dentists make a good profit off of the dental xrays they do.

What I do to neutralize radiation from x-rays is take a couple of drops of Lugol's iodine before and after x-rays. Lugol does a wonderful job of capturing radiation in the body.

Calcium Bentonite Clay taken internally will attract the radiation and flush it out of the system. Take with plenty of water as it can cause constipation if not enough fluids are taken. It can be added to bath water and soaked in to absorb radiation through the skin as well. Be sure to strain the bath water so as not to clog the tub. This is also used for people that have been overexposed to radiation from nuclear plants. Blessings, Robin

Many years ago I thought I had a major health problem with lumpy ,extremely painful breasts..finally got the courage to go to doctors and hear the bad news..he asked if I drank black coffee!!!! (which I had started doing a few weeks before ) He gave me a booklet (about 30 pages) about the effects of coffee on various organs and glands in the body..after a few days off the coffee breasts were back to normal. Prior to this I had only ever taken an occassional coffee with full cream milk. Apparently the milk and cream mitigate some of coffee's ravages.

Well, finally I have to air this problem. Recently I tried about eight different bras in varying price ranges. What I really believe is that it is a conspiracy against women's health if one examines the fabric they are made with.

Growing up, I had always well made bras that breathed and never "let me steep in my own juice". Nowadays at least here in Canada, all the fabrics are airtight and totally synthetic. Even custom made bras are made that way and while demonstrating on videos, no mention is made that human tissue is prevented from breathing. I finally settled for a cheaper bra since I find no point in spending on a garment that does not breathe no matter what the cost. So sometimes I use coconut oil to treat fungus due to this situation and wear loose clothing and no bra because it is utterly uncomfortable, always causing fungal infection especially under the band that goes around the rib cage. And that in the heat of the summer especially

Most cotton is now GMO'ed and poisoned. But I believe that the industry has directions what fabrics to use. There is seemingly nothing else but air tight stuff even though it says it is "breathable". Nothing is further from the truth.

Dr. Marc Sircus on his website mentioned this fact about women's bras in connection with breast cancer, since fungal infections can permeate the skin layers and cause havoc internally. Skin must breathe! In the past, the design included enough airy parts or the entire fabric. No More!

With toxic medicines, forbidden cures, poisoned foods, air and water, is this not worth making a point?

Coconut oil & balmex are my go to products for fungus under the breasts.

You are absolutely 'right on' about fungal infection under the breasts from today's bras. I found a way to alleviate the pain/sting and infection. Making sure the area is dry, I first wipe the area clean with coconut oil; then rub the affected area lightly with balmex. I do this every night before bed & within a few days, the fungus is all gone. This has worked on my chin dermatitis as well. I also NEVER wear a bra to bed; I let my boobies breathe all night and only occasionally ( too heavy! ) during the day. Smarter now about candida, I eat -100 carbs per day as carby foods can explode and feed the ever-present-on-the-human-body fungus. I also handwash my bras now, something I was always lazy about doing despite my grandmother's teachings. Soaking 30 min then hand-scrubbing with a toothbrush gets that "rim" much cleaner than a washing machine. These fungal infections are hyper-plaguing humanity & our pets now, and, from what I hear and read, this situation is expected to get worse. Fungus & Candida compromises the immune system by keeping the body inflamed and that can result in problems with allergic reactions, heart disease, colon, pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys, liver, skin, & mental issues (just naming a few). For me, nixing grains, sugar, and milk is the key along with 'under-eating' at each meal.

Hi everyone, I have to apologise in advanced for getting a bit graphic here. A few days ago I was having a shower and I found a small flesh coloured pimple in the centre of my left breast, I thought it was weird but ignored it, a few days later it turned pitch black and the next day it fell off, Yes fell off and left a hole where it was.

I went to the Doctor and he checked for lumps and thank god it wasn't anything serious but he just told me that I must have scratched myself and it was a scab that fell off however I don't believe that is the case since it was a bubble like a pimple.

I have researched this online and it is very common for women to have this especially on their left breast yet no one has found out what it is.

At first I thought it was a skin tag that must have died and turned black and fell off but the doctor said that skin tags don't fall off and if it was a skin tag it wouldn't leave a hole (I don't think) Someone said that it was dead nipple tissue and that the nipple tissue wasn't getting enough blood so it turns black and falls off.

Does anyone know what this is? And if it's safe? And what I can do to fix it? Sorry about this scary information but I could use some information and some help and no I am not pregnant. Thank you

I read that when warts die they turn black and then fall off. They can leave a hole, that eventually fills in and heals, if the healing is complete.

Hi Timh, Many thanks for your encouraging posts. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. The doctor has finally referred me to an endocrinologist but she has assured me it will be quite a few months before I get to see her - visited my GP three weeks ago and no sign of an appointment yet, it's definately depressing.. My doctor said that the LSH and FH hormones were fine. I am nearly sure she said there was no excess oestrogen imbalance - just low folic acid. I told you in my previous posts that I suffer from migraines and also that I started going grey early on. I am wondering if maybe I suffer from some kind of deficiency and was reading here on EC about the nutritious BSM, however I have also read an article or two where it has upset the menstrual cycle, (although most articles here seem to praise it for menstrual cycles) and as mine is pretty regular I would be very cautious about taking anything which may disrupt it. With regard to neuropathy I was wondering if you have heard of Jarrows Methyl B12 for supporting healthy nervous system or even have you any opinion on how the Methyl B12 rate in comparison to regular B12?
Thanks again for your posts. Kind regards.

Cassie, glad to hear back from you and that you are seeking to remedy your issues. If you test low for Folic Acid, supplementing B-12 will lower it even more. I would recommend boosting all vit/min naturally or w/ a good multivitimin/mineral supplement. Go ahead and try some BSM w/ added honey and if it has negative side effects drop it. Bentonite clay is a good source of minerals and would help detox the body. As for the mineral bath I mentioned earlier, you can benefit using the "foot-bath" method; the Epsom salt is soothing to the nervous system and aids detoxification and the baking soda diminishes acidity. Any of the honey bee products are nature's most nutrition dense. Bee Pollen granules is arguably the single best food on the planet. Back to the B-12; if you wish to boost, the methylcobalamin is the "active" form of B-12 and would be the best supplement; however, it is important that you get half as much Folic Acid as B-12. Try to find a product w/ these two together.

As for migraines, have you tried Vinpocetine or Hydrazine? I hope something is helping as this can be terrible.

Lastly, the Amino Acid GABA (1 gram) taken before retiring is a great tranquilizer and also increases natural Growth Hormone levels which helps turn back the clock on aging; I believe this is available in UK as it is a natural protein.

Hope this helps and report any changes, ok.

Hi Timh. Always good to get your posts. Unfortunately I now seem to have some kind of a swelling under my tongue (left side, I think it might be the duct-seems to go up and down at times) eating turnips seems to be the only thing that helps reduce the swelling. I am trying to detox as best I can but need to be careful now I'm taking medication. Thanks for your tips including the Epsom footbath. Just wondering if this or taking lots of supplements/high dosages of supplements or indeed detoxing in general will affect the efficacy of the medication. I looked around in town for BSM but could only locate Black Treacle, so I will try elsewhere over the next few days. The methyl b supplements I see are available in both capsule and sublingual form. Any recommendations on which is best. I have contacted a few sites in relation to official stockists of supplements on this side of the pond as I would be cautious about buying any foodstuff over the internet.

Was wondering can you recommend any site for supplements as I have a friend in the U. S who would happily oblige in getting them for me but most of them ship internationally anyway. I have bought from drugstore in the past but never supplements, was thinking of giving them a try.. I'm afraid I seem to be having a problem with stress at the moment. It has always affected me to some extent but giving up caffeine related products which used to be my crutch has proved difficult. I seem to be suffering from quite bad nervousness at times when in stressful situations. Anyway, I will update when I get some news regarding the breast issue. Regards for now.

Cassie, I am hoping that you can get back to good health once again.

Many USA health food or supplement retailers do a good bit of international business, so they usually have a flat shipping rate that is affordable. Iherb.com is one w/ lots of UK customers, as I once read many user responses but now they seem to have been deleted for some reason. Swanson Foods is a big favorite as they have great products as well as prices. BetterHealthInternational, Vitacost, Vitaglo, Vitaminlife, have all been good to me. AmazonUK includes many retailers which you can rate by the number of stars they receive.

As for B-12 unless you have digestive problems the sublingual would not be necessary, but try and find one w/ Folate also. Do try the GABA I mentioned as it could greatly benefit the body & mind. The stress you experience plus the other side effects seem to all indicate some kind of toxicity, so stay tuned for the many methods of detoxing and cleansing. Do try some Bentonite Clay as it is such a good cleaner and provider of minerals (I had two caps today).

As for interactions, this usually isn't an issue but it is good to ALWAYS read medication information thoroughly, supplements labels also indicate any possible interaction. While using the hypertension medicine Lisinipril I have experienced no problems and I take supplements by the hand-full; Oil Pulling, Detox Foot Spa or Pads don't seems to change the medication affect either.

Stay close to E. C. As there are so many helping heads here and all the good post; we all differ but we have the common goal of wellness. If I can help you further here's my email: kr892002 (at) yahoo (dot] com

Thank you Cassie and also Lisa from Jax, Fl, Rsw from Uniontown, Oh (already expressed gratitude to Lisa of Ca), and everyone else here that's been any help to me.

I really am naturally gracious as I have been battling a first chronic condition that worsened to an acute episode of leukemia of which I miraculously survived but not without much almost unbearable suffering, and only to go back into a chronic state again for about 12 yrs until in 2009 began a rapid decline once again. In the last episode of decline I had all my previous yrs experience as an ally but was yet overcome and found myself here on E. C. desperate for any lifesaving measures. It's been almost a 1yr now that a stop or reversal of disease has proved in itself also a threat as is the case in many "healing crisis".

And then there's the psychological, social and personal factors that can be horrible. My mother's passing w/ cancer in 2009 almost put me away but I took on an attitude of detachment and thought of nothing except what I must do for myself --the only form of selfishness, I suppose, of not an evil nature. The severity & complexity of my situation and the lack of professional help is astonishing. My Christian Faith, once strong, has all but eroded to apathy that god simply took a hit by Satan himself and wound up bartering a good deal to the evil one in this fallen garden we call earth or nature. NDE's have given me the grandest consolation that the best life is yet to come, as I have held a conservative ground against much opposition. I guess I have got like E. C. 's Robyn down under; am simply done w/ the suffering, how much can one person take??? Another day of fasting and then the dreaded gallbladder flush and maybe good results will leave me advance one step up in the direction of betterment.

Well, enough of this. Let's keep helping each other here and undoubtedly we will be rewarded in the supernatural.

Hi Timh, Bless you I wish you good health. Have you ever read any of the books by Norman Walker? Apart from living to about 100 and being a raw foodist he lectured on the huge benefits of colon cleansing to rid the body of toxins and kick start the healing process. He did talk of miraculous recoveries. I hope this helps. I am interested in this but have not experienced it, maybe it's out of fashion in the UK as I am struggling to find a centre. I haven't found much discussion of this on Earth Clinic but it could be another key to good health. X

Heather: I don't think I am familiar w/ Norman W. But I will check him out. I do have a book named Veggies For Life that I need to get back into. I keep my Colon clean on a daily basis w/ ground flax seeds orally, H2O2 enemas, and occasional Aloe Vera soft-gels orally. Am feeling much better now from a Gallbladder flush last night; haven't passed anything yet but I am sure I will as it's been several yrs since I flushed.

As for juicing, I have severely neglected this but do occasionally drink otc juice (i know it has lots of sodium). My current resolve is throw a bag of frozen veggies in the blender and add the otc grocer brand juice, toss some turmeric and garlic in there and let it mix. Since I haven't the energy & stamina or money to prepare fresh organic veggies this will at least be a good start. I hope to progress to sprouting wheat or beans and throw them in the veggie mix as the sprouts are loaded w/ enzymes.

Thanks for your concern and input; I am certain it will help me in my semi-critical condition. Hope you are well.

No surprise on the disappointments in your medical. Modern Medicine, like any other business, has so much of itself devoted to profit that prevention is what patients get very little of.

I was hoping you would have experienced at least some alleviation from these good home remedies and nutrition tips. As long as this condition doesn't worsen, I will not fret. Just focus on healthy, active, living.

Unfortunately women with breast cancer in their families are at the most risk in developing breast cancer themselves. Usually starts with a lump on their breast. If I were you I would immediately consider the highest priority for a breast exam before its to late!!! This matter can result into a potentially life threatening condition if you ignore the symptoms you just described.

I think this is to do with hormonal changes due to the pill. You need to get it checked out though. Apparently breast cancer isn't painfull so I think you have a sort of mastitis.

I believe it's the pill as well. But do get the lump checked out. You might try taking vitamin D3 as well. My breasts used to be very sensitive until I began taking D3.

I had a breast cyst aspirated 3 years ago. It was filled with dark green fluid-- walnut size, not dangerous or painful. It returned about a year ago. I tried topical natural progesterone skin oil, then Nattokinease capsules I found online, with no effect. Then (in addition to daily vitamins and green powder with juice) started taking 400 IU of vitamin E, 100 mg Vitamin B6, again not much result. Then recently I added a daily kelp tablet containing 225mcg iodine - eureka! The cyst has reduced half in size over a month - and I will update this when it's gone.

Hi Sylk. Just wondered how you got on with the iodine, as I have just started it, the Kelp iodine and not sure, as to how long I should take it for. This is what I read about iodine.. An excess of iodine in your body can also lead to health problems. When exposed to excessively high levels of iodine, your body can slow or stop the production of thyroid hormones, causing temporary hypothyroidism. Other thyroid diseases caused by too much iodine include some thyroid cancers and thyrotoxicosis, which is characterized by excess levels of thyroid hormones in the bloodstream. You should, therefore, not to exceed the recommended dose when taking a kelp iodine supplement. You should only use liquid kelp supplements under a doctor's supervision. Soo confused.:(

I had severe pain and cystic breasts. What eliminated was painting on Lugol's iodine, and taking it as well. I then found out I was hypothyroid and the painful breasts were a symptom!

Immediate relief! Even my gynecologist didn't even suggest this remedy.

I was given all kinds of pain medication, even birth control pills to help and they did nothing. Try getting lugol's and painting on breast first. Do not worry it stains then disappears!

If it disappears quickly, you are iodine deficient! Get your thyroid checked.

I sometimes get very painful and sore breasts during the month which worsen with caffeine. What I have found that can get rid of most of the pain and sensitivity within 24 hours is magnesium - either powdered or a daily epsom salts baths where I soak for at least 15 minutes in a full tub of hot water with half a bag of epsom salts. Taking powdered mag (calm) is so much easier than soaking in a bath, but my stomach can only take so much magnesium. It causes a lot of gas and loose stools. I have tried magnesium oil too, but prefer soaking in epsom salts.

I stopped magnesium for about a month so I could try other remedies, but none of them worked. I tried blackstrap molasses, vitamin e capsules, iodine supplement and some herbs for balancing hormones.

I hope this helps someone!
