The truth behind breast pain: what’s causing it and how to get rid of it.

Posted by Natania Frydman on

Get ready to have your mind blown: your monthly breast pain is 100% possible to get rid of on your own. Though common, it is not normal and does not need to be a part of your life. 


Breast pain is caused by excess estrogen getting stuck and stagnant in the fatty breast tissue. Our menstrual cycle has four different hormones rising and falling at different intervals throughout the month. Estrogen is on during your ovulation period. 


Here is a description of the ovulation period from

Ovulation is the release of a mature egg from the surface of the ovary. This usually occurs mid-cycle, around two weeks or so before menstruation starts. 

"During the ovulation phase (follicular phase) , the developing follicle causes a rise in the level of estrogen. The hypothalamus in the brain recognizes these rising levels and releases a chemical called gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH). This hormone prompts the pituitary gland to produce raised levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and FSH.

Within two days, ovulation is triggered by high levels of LH. The egg is funneled into the fallopian tube and toward the uterus by waves of small, hair-like projections. The life span of the typical egg is only around 24 hours. Unless it meets a sperm during this time, it will die.”

If the egg is not inseminated then Estrogen will begin to decline as a woman moves through the next two phases of the hormonal cycle that lead to menstruation and the releasing of the egg to start it all again next month. 

Now, because we are so stressed out due to too many factors to even start listing, the liver can get too overwhelmed and is not able to properly flush out the estrogen. It then stays logged in the breast tissue, and this is where breast pain comes from. 

The solution is remarkably simple, by massaging your breast daily, especially for the first two weeks of your cycle ( starting from right after your period ends) you will stimulate the large lymphatic node system in your armpit, and you will manually be able to stimulate the detoxification process that will move all the excess estrogen out of your breasts.

Once the excess estrogen is cleared, you will have no more pain. I know, huge news. What I love so much about this, is that what you are actually doing when you massage your breasts is just helping your body function in exactly the way it was built for. Your body is perfectly made, evolved for your own survival, it is a magically flawless machine. Your own touch is all you need to get rid of pain, and find balance. 

Now tell me that isn’t the most inspiring and beautiful thing you have heard all day.
