HEALTH & WELLBEING
There have been many times that my readers or clients tell me that they don't get their mammograms because they fear negative results and they'd rather live in denial than in empowerment. I especially hear this from women who suffer from breast mastitis, or inflammation of the breast. The two most common types of this condition are acute mastitis involving bacterial infection, and a chronic mastitis with no infection but with tenderness and pain. This is a condition that MUST be checked by a qualified healthcare professional so that it can be adequately addressed and treated. Once diagnosed, then perhaps mammography won't seem so daunting. And in a month devoted to breast health awareness, this 'National Mammography Day' encourages every woman (and men with familial history) to do exactly that. The following home remedies have proven perfectly wonder-full for women suffering from mastitis ailments. As soon as you feel any soreness in the breast you should drink all-natural violet leaf tea, two to four cups daily. You can even make a poultice from the tea leaves and apply it directly to the breast. If the mastitis is recurrent, then dandelion leaf tea will blow the bacteria away. Three cups of this tea every day has been known to bring balance back to the breasts, and the entire body as well. You can also make a poultice from the leaves of dandelion leaf tea and apply it to the affected breast once a day for twenty minutes. Either way, the message from this healing dandelion will be 'Loves Me' and loves my healthy and healed breast, too!
