If you have sore breasts one possible solution you may want to consider is homeopathy. To put it simply, homeopathy involves using various natural substances in small concentrations to eliminate symptoms.
This type of treatment is different from other alternative health treatments because it is similar to using a very small amount of “poison” to get the body to respond to a symptom and resolve it.
As for breast soreness, women who have fibrocystic breasts are much more likely to soreness during their menstrual cycle. They may also have breast tenderness before their periods as well.
But before we can prescribe a homeopathic remedy for sore breasts we have to look at what other symptoms may be occurring at the same time.
As an example, there is a homeopathic remedy that is called “Folliculinum,” that is used to treat painful, tender breasts that are also swollen due to too much estrogen.
However, if the breasts are swollen and tender and also feel heavy or hard and there is also cramps and heavy blood flow, then Folliculinum is the wrong treatment to use. Instead, you would want to use a treatment called “Phytolacca.”
Here’s another example, if a woman has breast tenderness, small hard lumps and either uterine fibroids, hemorrhoids, prolapsed organs and/or varicose veins, then the correct treatment is “Calcarea fluorica.”
Now if the uterine fibroids are accompanied by a need to lose weight or if the woman tends to gain weight fast and she has a heavy period and sore breasts, then the best treatment is “Calcarea carbonica.”
Here’s one more scenario, if a woman has small, lumpy, flat breasts and thyroid imbalances, the correct treatment is “Iodum.”
As you can see, there is a lot of variety to homeopathic treatments for sore breasts and it may take bit of study and testing to determine which is right for you.
You may even want to consult with a homeopathic physician to find the best treatment. One more thing: another way to combat breast soreness is to take a period vitamin that contains ingredients known to reduce soreness and swelling of the breasts.
