Taking Care Of Your Breasts To Minimize The Risk Of Cancer
Breasts are wonderful things--soft, warm, able to provide nourishment for babies and pleasure for you. Breasts are modified sweat glands that produce milk. Simply put, breasts are made up of :- *-- Fats( or more technically adipose tissues) *-- Milk producing lobes ( including milk storage and producing systems) *-- And the ligaments to hold them up *-- On the outside there are nipples and areoli. Breast size is determined by the amount of adipose tissues or fat in the breasts and has no bearing on the milk producing capabilities of breasts. Brests change through the menstrual cycle. Most if not all women can notice the changes that their bressts go through each cycle. The way youe breasts look, their size, the way they respond to touch, soreness or tenderness all flactuate. Not much is taught about breast care-unless thee is disease or discomfort or having trouble in breast feeding. If you feel your breasts are startibg to feel heavy ans sore most days through your cycle and definetely may be worse in the post evolution phase. If you are not big breasted and your breasts get so tender that you have to sleep with bra on, and breasts are uncomfortable to touch generally have no fun any more. Ten start an excercise program that will make breast tenderness disappear, size will decrease will lose pendulous look, and will be more perky and youthful. The excercise includes gentle massage to the breasts and *-- 1. Rub hands together to warm them. Place one hand over each breast with nipple resting between thumb and forefinger. Rotate breasts upward, outward, and then inward. Do this about 24 times. *-- 2. Warm hands, using four fingers gently rub whole of the breast in a circular movement around the breast. *-- 3. Warm hands, usinfg four fingers gently rub the nipple and sreola in a circular movement. Diet is always an important factor of good health. PMS type B and H generally suffer from tender breasts. Breast self-examination is also important. What kind of bra you wear and how often you wear a bra could also contribute to your breast health. It is eay to imagine that wearing a tight bra that restricts the natural movement of the breasts and therefore the drainage of toxins out of the breasts probably is not the best way to care for your health. When choosing a bra - try to choose a bra for breast health not fsasion. Choose a cotton, comfortable bra, avoiis wearinfg a sports bras and push-up bras or underwire bras for long lenhts of time.
