Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide particularly increasing in the Western countries, with nearly 1.7 million new cases diagnosed since 2012. (Source: http://www.wcrf.org/ ) It is about time we start looking into how we can cultivate healthy breasts.
The other day outside of a train station, there were volunteers with charity buckets shouting something that broke my heart.
They said – 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
It was their way of raising awareness! But is it really?
I truly believe Mother Teresa’s philosophy, where she said –
“I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there”
I know what I am going to talk about will trigger some beliefs in you but I feel that it is time that we begin to discern what information to take in and what to discard in this overflowing information age. It is time we stop living in fear, stress and chaos and instead look at the alternatives that are available to us.
Every year October is considered to be the Breast Cancer Awareness month. We are bombarded with new statistics of women dying, newly researched Cancer treatments, inspiration for women to get themselves tested, early detection programmes, mammograms, etc.
(By the ways, I love this article from Dr. Christiane Northup who is a visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, which includes the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit – ‘5 More Reasons Not to Get a Mammogram‘)
For me as a diligent student of the universal laws of attraction, talking about cancer awareness never felt right!
Talk to me about Breast Health Awareness i.e. how to heal, understand and nurture our breast health and I will be the first ones joining the propaganda.
So here I am giving my small contribution to foster breast love.
Yes sister! It is time for us to start loving our lady lumps.
Our breasts are incredibly important in embracing and cultivating our feminine essence.
Many of us have been conditioned to judge them on their shape and size. It’s like – the bigger the better.
And then we end up building up resentment, shame and other negative feelings towards our breasts.
Many of us women perceive our breasts as just tools to arouse men or to feed babies.
As we deepen our relationship with our breasts, we also deepen our capacity for being loving and compassionate besides experiencing orgasmic pleasure.
So sister, my question is –
‘What is your relationship with your breasts and are you willing to take it to the next level?’
If your answer is a YES, here are my top 6 natural ways to cultivate healthy breasts.
Watch the video below to find out about my 6 favourite Natural Ways to Cultivate Healthy Breasts .
Healthy Tip # 1 – Daily Massage
Funny enough we are more used to someone else like your children or lover touching them.
However, every time we touch, stroke or massage our breasts, it releases oxytocin hormones which helps us feel relaxed, reduces our menstrual cramps, boosts immunity, lowers blood pressure, etc.
It simply can be 2mins a day in the shower or in the evening.
You can do this by gently holding, cupping and rubbing some coconut oil in clockwise and anticlockwise. You can then vibrate your breasts gently up and down to increase the flow of blood.
Healthy Tip # 2 – Homemade Breast Masks
This is a great way to enhance firmness and growth of tissues of your lady lumps.
I like to use a mixture of egg, yoghurt, honey and Vitamin E oil and leave it on my breasts for 25 mins. You can use this mixture as often as you wish.
Healthy Tip # 3 – Throw away those Underwire Bras
They block the circulation of blood and lymph fluid around the breasts which leads to an accumulation of toxic chemicals around your breasts.
There has been several researches available online showing how unhealthy those underwire bras are and I am sure I don’t need to convince you because you know that feeling of relief the moment you get out of your bra.
Fortunately, there are plenty of alternatives available in the market.
Healthy Tip # 4 – Clean your Liver
In the ancient teachings of the Tao, the liver plays an important role in breasts health.
The liver’s important task is to move chi also known the life-force energy and blood within the body.
So, drink a lot of water and practice eating healthy food like lots of greens, green tea, garlic, onion, turmeric, basically a low fat high fibre diet in order to keep your liver healthy which in turn will send in the positive chi to your breast health.
Healthy Tip # 5 – Avoid Electro Magnetic Fields
Sleeping with your phone or close to any other electronic device is a big no-no and you’ve got to stop that right now.
All electronics radiate electromagnetic energy and they cause electrical currents inside the body which leads to heating of body tissues.
I personally get a lot of static energy in my body which is why I use Himalayan Salt Lamps in my living environment to cut down on the effects of these electromagnetic fields.
Healthy Tip # 6 – Practice Forgiveness
According to the Tantric traditions, your breasts are the extension of your heart centre. Your emotions of anger and resentment towards people and situations get accumulated in and around our breasts which sends negative energy to our breasts.
Practicing forgiveness every day, including self-forgiveness can be a deeply healing act for your heart chakra and your breasts.
I have this beautiful Forgiveness Prayer for you to check out.
This October I invite you to change the way you have been perceiving your breasts and give it the respect it truly deserves being such an integral part of your female body.
