I have been taking the Iodine Sea Kelps for a week now and have experienced some relief of the breast pain. I am also going to supplement it with Vitamin E & C, Selinum and Magnesium.
I found out last September that I had breast cysts, the pain was very uncomfortable. I went and did two ultra sounds and they saw very small cysts, as small a rice grain, but they still hurt. I was told that I had FBD, I did my research online and found that many women were using the Primrose oil, so I started using it. It has helped me somewhat but the discomfort still lingers, I am so excited now to go and try the Iodine and see if this will help me as well.
Will keep you posted.
Thank God, I found this site. I have been suffering from cyclic breast pain from the time I stopped breast feeding. My son is now 21 yrs old. I am 46.
This pain makes you go crazy. Have been to my gynae on numerous occasions. Put me on evening primrose, which never helped. Been for MRI and ultra sounds. The lumps are still there and very painful. Then put me on Danogen tablets, which made me gain an enormous amount of mass. which is really difficult to get rid off, despite my regular walks and exercise. I eat healthy (vegetarian) have decaf coffee, no fizzy drinks, no tea. I really do understand what all you women are going through. When I stumbled on this site and everyone is talking about Lugols Iodine, I was so excited. Here is something that most of you are taking and is helping. Am going to start taking this as from today. Will keep you posted on results.
I read here that Vitamin E helps tender fibrous breasts. Since the implantation of my IUD 3 months ago, my breasts had been so tender not even my boyfriend could touch them. A week ago I tried taking one Vitamin E/day, and each day they have been noticably better. Now they're back to normal! Thanks!
I had fibrocystic breasts at one time in my life. It was horrible. Fortunately, all I had to do was eliminate coffee from my life. Once coffee was a eliminated, the cysts were go in 30 days. The only caffeine I consume now is the caffein in green tea.
Yes.. 10 yrs ago I thought I had breast cancer, my breasts were so sore I could hardly move my arms. Went to the doctors and he asked if I drank coffee! I had been dieting for about 6 weeks and given up milk and sugar in my coffee, drinking about 3-4 cups a day. Doctor told me BLACK coffee was the worst culprit and gave me a little booklet (about 30 pages) listing all the symptoms and complaints linked to coffee consumption. A few days after discontinuing the black coffee all soreness was gone. I wish I had kept the little booklet, must have lost it in one of my many shifts. One thing stuck however..If you must drink coffee always add full cream milk or better yet cream itself, it mitigates the bad effects (but I forget the reasons for this) Cheers.
I just stopped drinking coffee (the only caffeinated drink) and it was gone!
Fibrocystic Breasts: Hey this stuff can hurt. I had it so bad my left arm was painful. I really thought I had breast cancer. The doctor told me to GET OFF THE CAFFEINE and take Vitamin E twice a day. It worked havent had a problem like that since then.
