Fibrocystic Breast Disease

Many women notice painful or sensitive breasts just prior to menstruation. This is usually attributed to more estrogen acting on the breast tissue than progesterone. The liver is the primary site for estrogen clearance, so a healthy liver is key to treatment. Digestion and elimination are also fundamental processes involved in healthy hormone metabolism, the longer it takes waste products to move through the digestive system, the more waste products pass into the bloodstream. Removing caffeine from the diet is the most commonly known alternative treatment. It works quite well in reducing pain and benign breast lumps and is a good place to start.
