National Women’s Week – Topic of the day: Breast Tenderness

Do you experience breast tenderness two weeks before your period? Hormonal shifts can cause inflammation within the breast tissue making it uncomfortable to run or even wear a bra. There are holistic options available to help increase your premenstrual comfort.

Here are a few tips that Dr. Christiane Northrup recommends:

  • increase soluable fiber intake
  • eliminate caffeine
  • monitor if dairy effects your symptoms
  • include omega-3 fatty acids in your diet
  • apply castor oil packs to your breasts
  • encourage lymph circulation by breast self massage
