Fibrocystic breast disease is a benign (non-cancerous) condition characterized by lumpiness and discomfort in one or both breasts. Fibrocystic breasts occur most often in women in their 20s to 50s. More than half of women experience fibrocystic breast changes at some point in their lives.

Symptoms:

The symptoms can be limited in time, usually occurring only premenstrually.

Symptoms of fibrocystic breasts may include:

  • breast lumps
  • breast pain or tenderness
  • changes in both breasts
  • increase in breast pain and lumps’ size in the second half of your cycle

Diagnosis

Your physician will examine your breasts manually to determine which, if any, diagnostic tools to use for further evaluation. These diagnostic tools include mammography, ultrasound, needle aspiration, and biopsy.

Natural steps to reduce symptoms of fibrocystic breasts:

  • Decrease estrogen from your diet, birth control pills, commercially raised meats.
  • Reduce caffeine-containing foods and drinks from your diet – chocolate, coffee, coke and tea.

Homeopathic treatment for fibrocystic breasts:

Homeopathy will re-balance your hormones naturally, alleviating not only breast symptoms but also affecting your ovulation, mood and sexual desire.

Homeopathy’s efficacy is often due to its holistic approach that treats the whole body. For example, breast soreness is often a sign of too much estrogen, a condition often caused by the liver that plays an important role in the estrogen metabolism. The homeopathic medicines will detoxify the liver and will restore normal estrogen levels, thus decreasing naturally the discomfort and pain in the breasts.

There are over 50 homeopathic medicines for fibrocystic breasts. They work best when they fit your individual symptoms.
