Breast Lumps: What You Need to Know About Benign Lumps, Hormonal Changes, and Toxin Buildup

Breast lumps can be a scary and concerning issue for many women. However, not all breast lumps are cancerous. In fact, most breast lumps are benign and can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, cysts, and fibroadenomas. I have come across many cases where breast lumps are due to a buildup of toxic lymphatic fluid in the breast tissue.

As we know, most health issues stem from a dirty lymphatic system. Anytime we have things like tumors, cysts, masses, or lumps, our bodies are telling us that we have waste in these areas, and the body is trying to help us out by sectioning off this toxic waste from the rest of the body. The more waste in the body, the more the mass grows.

The lymphatic system is a vital part of our immune system and is responsible for removing waste and toxins from the body. When the lymphatic system becomes congested, lymphatic fluid can build up in the breast tissue, leading to the formation of a lump. This congestion can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, and the use of toxic body products.

So, how can we remove these breast lumps caused by lymphatic fluid buildup? The first step is to focus on detoxifying the body. This can be done through a variety of methods, including diet, herbs, exercise, lymphatic massage, and lots of other detox tools such a sauna, castor oil packs, enemas, etc.

Diet plays a crucial role in detoxifying the body. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help support the body's natural detoxification process. Drinking plenty of water is essential for flushing toxins out of the body and staying hydrated. When we're trying to focus on anything lymphatic system related, eating grapes is always recommended as they are the best and most astringent lymph pullers. You'll want to avoid dairy products because they contribute to lymphatic congestion.

Herbs can be really helpful to stimulate the lymphatic system, support the elimination pathways, and also break up lymphatic fluid. Some herbs I would recommend getting started with are Dr. Morse herbs. His blends are strong and very high quality. While you're trying to remove a lump, you'll have to support multiple systems of the body at once. I always suggest getting yourself on 2 kidney formulas, #1 & #2 are great to start out with. A bowel formula (GI Renew) choosing the formula that makes sense for your current bowel movement cycle. The endocrine formula to support all of the glands throughout the process. And a lymphatic formula, to help encourage the lymphatic system to move the lump out. I would recommend starting with Lymph 1.

Exercise is another important aspect of detoxification. Regular physical activity can help stimulate the lymphatic system and promote lymphatic drainage. Activities such as yoga, rebounding, and brisk walking are great options for supporting lymphatic flow. Sweating really helps to move lymph out of the skin too so doing sauna a few times a week can be very beneficial! Remember to encourage the skin to open by dry brushing.

Lymphatic massage is also an effective way to remove breast lumps caused by lymphatic fluid buildup. This type of massage involves gentle, rhythmic strokes that help stimulate lymphatic flow and encourage the removal of waste and toxins from the body. There are many trained massage therapists who specialize in this type of massage. I also enjoy my massage gun, it really helps to break up lymph and move it out of the body. Make sure you're elimination pathways are supported through the process, otherwise the waste will just move to other areas of the body instead of exiting the body.

Another helpful tip is trying to pull the lump through the skin by using bentonite clay masks, black salve, and castor oil packs.

It's important to note that while lymphatic fluid buildup can cause breast lumps, not all breast lumps are due to this issue. If you notice a lump in your breast, it's important to have it evaluated by a healthcare professional. Your doctor may recommend a mammogram or ultrasound to determine the cause of the lump. Using these tools is important and gives us clarity on what is actually going on inside.

In conclusion, breast lumps caused by a buildup of lymphatic fluid can be a concerning issue, but they can be effectively treated through detoxification methods such as diet, herbal medicine, exercise, and lymphatic massage. It's important to always seek professional medical advice and support when dealing with breast lumps.
