Lymphatic System & My Story-Fibrocystic Breast Tissues (Video Inside)
If you have Fibrocystic breast tissues, you may want to read this blog and watch this short video.
I share my 10-year journey with fibrocystic breast tissues and how I was able to heal my body and today I no longer have that condition. I also discuss the connection between the lymphatic system and menopausal symptoms, in particular fibrocystic breast tissues, and what you can do.
Now on to my blog...
Learning about the connection between the lymphatic system and menopausal symptoms, in particular fibrocystic breast tissues, and what you can do can be quite enlightening. It's amazing how our bodies work together in such intricate ways!
Recent studies suggest that the lymphatic system may play a role in regulating menopausal symptoms by removing toxins and excess fluids from the body.
What is the Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, tissues, and organs that work together to help remove waste, toxins, and other harmful substances from our body.
It plays a critical role and works with the immune system to fight infections and diseases by producing white blood cells and antibodies that help fight off harmful pathogens.
Without a properly functioning lymphatic system, our body would be more susceptible to illnesses and infections. Therefore, it is crucial to maintain and support the health of our lymphatic system to ensure optimal immune function and overall health.
When everything is working well, the Lymph vessels collect and drain excess fluids from the body. Proper care and management of the lymphatic system may help alleviate some menopausal symptoms.
For over 10 years I suffered from fibrocystic breast tissues and I later learned that my lymphatic system was not draining the excess fluids from my breast tissues so the fluid calcified which according to my doctors put me at high risk for breast cancer.
For 10 years, every six months, I had to see a breast specialist, have mammograms & sonograms and visit my GYN. It was such a frustrating time for me because no one had answers except for monitoring.
What I did hear was that this is a natural part of being a woman and the menopause transition. You just have to burn through it. I agree that it is natural, but I DID NOT BELIEVE YOU NEED TO SUFFER.
That was when I took matters into my own hands. I did my research and I worked with a holistic practitioner who helped me to implement various protocols that ultimately eliminated my fibrocystic breast tissues.
I want to stress that this did not happen overnight, It took over a year to heal my body.
Some of my protocols included:
Detoxing my body
Massaging my breast daily with certain essential oils to get the lymphatic fluid moving
Dry brushing my breasts daily and also my entire body (this was my favorite)
Reducing processed foods
Moving my body daily
