Breast Care
Alternative Care Suggestions for Breasts

If you are experiencing problems with your breasts, look at areas in your life where you are taking care of other people but not nurturing yourself enough.  If this is true for you, I think it's very natural to feel some resentment toward the person(s) you are taking care of, but that could cause guilt because you think you should love them.  While unconditional love is ideal, sacrificing yourself is not.  So now there's probably some resentment plus guilt but you're trying not to have those feelings and you're still not taking care of yourself.  This may not be the case for you, but if any of that rings true then you probably want to do some work in those areas.

I recommend doing these every day or every other day for the next few weeks:

  • Tell your breasts you love them and appreciate them.
  • Visualize yourself being healthy.
  • Say these affirmations (from "Heal Your Body" by Louise Hay) several times a day. If you make up your own, be sure they are in the present tense and positive (don't use "not" or "no"): 

    I take in and give out nourishment in perfect balance.

    I am important. I count. I care for and nourish myself with love and joy.

    I allow others the freedom to be who they are. We are all safe and free.

  • Lovingly massage your breasts for about 10 minutes.  Make sure you get the lymph nodes too. You could even do your visualization while you do the massage.

 Remember, men have breasts too!
