If you suffer from PMS sore breasts you know how painful it can be. Sometimes it can feel like your breasts are going to explode they are so sore.
But have you ever wondered why your breasts are sore?
If you get sore breasts during your period or right before or right after your period chances are it’s because of a hormonal imbalance or your body is low in essential nutrients.
Luckily for you, both of these conditions can be corrected with herbs. That’s right, herbal pills can make up hormonal or nutrient deficiencies and have you feeling better in no time.
That means there is a good chance you don’t have to go through painful sore breasts before, during or after your period.
Here’s what to look for:
First and foremost, you want to look for herbs that do NOT raise your estrogen level. Raising your estrogen level would actually cause your breast soreness to get worse not better.
Instead, you should take one or more of the following herbs, which do not raise estrogen:
1. Dandelion – Eat five to six leaves daily to cleanse your liver and rid your body of excess hormones that can wreck havoc on your system – causing emotional outbursts and, yes, sore breasts.
Dandelion is a liver cleanser and when your liver is cleansed it is better able to break down hormones as they should be broken down.
The end result is you will be less moody and your breasts may be less sore.
2. Chasteberry – You should take approximately 32.4 mg per day of this herb to reduce breast tenderness. This herb has been shown to be very effective in relieving breast soreness, however; you should keep in mind that not all herbs work the same in all people. What works for one may not work for you. Try different options or take a comprehensive period vitamin that contains multiple herbs and vitamins and minerals for the best chance at relieving your breast soreness.
3. Artichoke – This is another herb that cleanses the liver and helps the body get rid of excess hormones which can cause breast soreness. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory and inflammation can be another cause of PMS breast soreness. Take two capsules two times a day.
4. Milk Thistle – Another liver cleanser that helps reduce PMS
breast soreness. Take two capsules two times a day or if you are taking the extract follow the directions on the bottle.
Remember, taking a period vitamin is a great way to get beneficial herbs. A good period vitamin will contain herbs and vitamins and minerals. The herbs are specific for hormonal regulation while the vitamins and minerals are necessary for preventing deficiencies that can cause breast tenderness. It’s the easiest way to address PMS symptoms, including PMS breast soreness.
