For women breast health is an extremely important component of our overall health. Today we are talking about helpful tips and information on how to keep 'em luscious and healthy!
Here’s What you Should Look for:
Breasts that are their usual size, shape, and coloBreasts that are evenly shaped without visible distortion or swelling
Dimpling, puckering, or bulging of the skin
A nipple that has changed position or an inverted nipple (pushed inward instead of sticking out) Redness, soreness, rash, or swelling
Look at your breasts in the mirror with your shoulders straight and your arms on your hips.
Raise Your arms and evaluate.
Feel your breasts while lying down, using your right hand to feel your left breast and then your left hand to feel your right breast. Use a firm, smooth touch with the first few finger pads of your hand, keeping the fingers flat and together. Use a circular motion, about the size of a quarter. Cover the entire breast from top to bottom, side to side — from your collarbone to the top of your abdomen, and from your armpit to your cleavage.
Follow a pattern to be sure that you cover the whole breast. You can begin at the nipple, moving in larger and larger circles until you reach the outer edge of the breast. You can also move your fingers up and down vertically, in rows, as if you were mowing a lawn.
Finally, feel your breasts while you are standing or sitting. Many women find that the easiest way to feel their breasts is when their skin is wet and slippery, so they like to do this step in the shower. Cover your entire breast, using the same hand movements described in step 3.
Ensure that you reach out to your doctor immediately if you notice anything abnormal!
Lymphatic Drainage for Breast Health
Any blockages in the body’s lymphatic fluid can lead to disease and blockages in the fluid localized in the breasts are no different. To prevent disease from occurring, and to ensure that you keep your breasts healthy at home, try daily lymphatic self breast massage or dry brushing around the area (and your whole body!).
Don’t forget to come in monthly for your electro lymphatic drainage treatment to get deeper into the tissue and further prevent disease from forming. Prevention is key!
