TCM supports breast sub-health

Sub health is everywhere, even the breast has sub-health. Perhaps many people have experienced the sub-health of breasts, but they may not pay attention to it. Next, we asked the experts of gynecology to tell us the necessary work behind women’s “standing up”.

Traditional Chinese medicine “pulse” breast hyperplasia:

The incidence rate of mammary hyperplasia is more than 80% among women of childbearing age, which is the most common disease of mammary gland. Chinese medicine experts “feel the pulse” of mammary gland hyperplasia, saying that mammary gland hyperplasia is divided into “physiological non cystic mammary gland hyperplasia” and “pathological cystic hyperplasia”. Physiological non cystic mammary gland hyperplasia actually belongs to the “sub-health” state of mammary gland.

Although physiological mammary hyperplasia is not a pathological change, it is also an early manifestation of female systemic endocrine and metabolic dysfunction. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that breast hyperplasia is mostly related to “seven emotions, Qi and blood, spleen and stomach disorders”. Therefore, to get rid of the sub-health state of breast, it is necessary to adjust emotions and unblock Qi and blood.

Physiological mammary hyperplasia: the “sub healthy” state of mammary gland

Mammary gland hyperplasia accounts for 75% of all mammary gland diseases, which is mostly seen in women aged 25 to 45. The breast pain caused by it often makes women distressed. Experts introduced that the latest concept believes that mammary gland hyperplasia is a benign mammary gland disease in the process of normal development and degeneration of the mammary gland.

But hyperplasia of mammary gland cannot be treated by disease. Experts say that women who find breast pain must distinguish between physiological and pathological:

If there is continuous pain in the mammary gland of different lengths during each menstrual period, some for months and some for years, it is caused by the imperfect periodic changes of the mammary gland, which belongs to the physiological hyperplasia of the mammary gland, also known as “lactalgia”. The changes of breast tissue include hyperplasia of fibrous tissue around acinus or lobule, irregular development of lobule, hyperplasia of epithelial cells of acinus or duct, etc. There is no need to worry too much about physiological mammary gland hyperplasia, which can mostly self heal. Some women’s symptoms can completely disappear after giving birth or breast-feeding, while others can recover after 1-2 years of menopause.

Pathological hyperplasia of the breast should be vigilant. When pathological hyperplasia of the breast occurs, epithelial cells of the breast duct proliferate, and small breast ducts in the breast are highly expanded to form cysts, so it is called “cystic hyperplasia of the breast”. Experts stress that a few of the disease will become cancerous.

Since it is difficult for patients to find the difference between physiological hyperplasia and pathological hyperplasia through self-examination, when breast swelling and pain occur, it is still necessary to find a specialist for diagnosis for safety.

Letting go may lead to pathological changes

Since most of the physiological mammary gland hyperplasia can heal itself, can we let it go? Experts remind that in breast hyperplasia, physiological simple hyperplasia accounts for the majority. Its essence is poor breast structure. If it continues to develop, it may lead to pathological changes, such as cystic hyperplasia or breast tumor. Therefore, physiological mammary hyperplasia can be regarded as a “sub-health” state between health and disease.

The sub-health state of human body is closely related to the bad lifestyle such as environment, pressure and eating disorder. Epidemiological data show that breast hyperplasia is also closely related to these bad lifestyle.

Experts say that since it is sub-health, it needs to be conditioned so that it does not develop into disease. The regulation of breast sub-health plays an important role in preventing breast cancer, female reproduction and endocrine diseases. In fact, breast sub-health is a common manifestation of women’s sub-health, which is easier to detect and regulate early than endocrine disorders and other gynecological diseases.

TCM pulse

According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the female breast is “connected” with the liver and stomach. The hyperplasia of the breast is mostly caused by “stagnation of liver qi, phlegm and stasis, and dysfunctional functions”. Specifically, it is closely related to “seven emotions, Qi and blood, spleen and stomach disorders, and kidney essence loss”.

From the perspective of physique, mammary gland hyperplasia is common in four kinds of physiques: Qi stagnation, phlegm dampness, blood stasis and damp heat.

Prevention of mammary gland hyperplasia

According to the causes of mammary gland hyperplasia, experts introduced life conditioning methods to prevent mammary gland hyperplasia:

1. Regulate emotions

Because women are more sensitive, emotionally unstable, prone to depression, anxiety and excessive thinking, they will directly affect hormone secretion. For this reason, women should be good at adjusting their emotions, maintaining a good mental state, and learning to vent their bad emotions by chatting and traveling. Especially during menstruation and pregnancy, we should pay more attention to regulating bad emotions. Remember: happy is the most effective way to prevent breast hyperplasia.

2. Reasonable work and rest

Life should be regular, pay attention to rest, ensure adequate sleep, and do not often stay up late. In addition, regular sexual life can also help to adjust physiological rhythm disorders and endocrine disorders.

3. Menstrual cycle diet

Diet and recuperation before menstruation: (1) eat a small number of meals, and adopt a low sugar diet at the same time to avoid sweets; (2) Reduce dairy products, avoid breast obstruction and magnesium absorption in the body, because magnesium can help regulate the concentration of estrous hormone and promote secretion; (3) Avoid animal fat and replace animal fat with polyunsaturated fat; (4) Limit the amount of salt, and it is best to adopt a low sodium diet to prevent moisture from staying in the body; (5) Increase the intake of fiber, and eat more vegetables, beans, whole wheat, buckwheat and barley; (6) Avoid caffeine and refrain from consuming caffeinated foods such as coffee, tea and chocolate.

Post menstrual diet: within 1-5 days after menstruation, protein, minerals and blood nourishing foods should be supplemented, and excessive consumption of caffeinated drinks, cheese and chocolate should be avoided.

Recommended soup: Yellow cauliflower orange peel pig lean meat soup, black chicken stewed black beans, crucian carp soup, orange peel duck soup, turtle shell orange peel pig lean meat soup have therapeutic effects on breast hyperplasia.

Massage can dredge the breast channels

Experts said that massage can dredge the breast meridians, promote the circulation of Qi, blood and lymph in the meridians, stimulate nerve conduction, and provide the nutrition needed by the breast. Specific method:

● massage breast with hot compress

Every night before going to bed, apply hot towels to both breasts for 3-5 minutes, and massage around the breasts with the palm of your hand, from left to right, for 20-50 times.

● side push breast

Use the palm root and palm surface of your left hand to push the right breast laterally from the middle of the chest to the armpit. When returning, use your five fingers to bring back the breast tissue. After repeating for 20-50 times, massage the left breast with your right hand for 20-50 times.

● push the breast straight

First, use the palm of your right hand to exert force on the upper part of the left breast, that is, below the clavicle, and push it down evenly and gently to the root of the breast, then push it back up along the original route. After 20-50 times, massage the right breast with your left hand for 20-50 times.
