Do your breasts start to swell and ache before your period?

What underlying health problems are hidden in this "premenstrual disorder"? How to defend it?

From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, premenstrual breast tenderness is an early and important signal of gynecological diseases, and it is one of the premenstrual syndromes. The main cause is "liver stagnation", which is usually related to the regulation of hormonal endocrine system or ovarian function.

Hormone and endocrine disorders lead to menstrual syndrome, and regulating the liver meridian is a shortcut to cure! The health of a woman's life focuses on nourishing qi and blood, soothing the liver and regulating qi, nourishing the inner abdomen, which can effectively prevent gynecological diseases, say goodbye to menstrual syndrome, and prevent menopausal syndrome. Here's a simple and effective internal and external treatment recipe for you! 

Breast tenderness is an early sign of gynecological diseases!

From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, premenstrual breast pain is an early and important signal of gynecological diseases, which is usually related to the instability of endocrine system or ovarian function regulation. Generally speaking, premenstrual breast tenderness usually occurs after ovulation, or a few days to a week before the onset of menstruation.

At this time, female friends often find that the usually soft breasts become hard and the nipples become sensitive. Especially whenever you touch or even wear it, you will feel uncomfortable, and you will feel pain when you roll over while sleeping. After menstruation begins, these symptoms will slow down and disappear.
But are women with these symptoms at higher risk for breast cancer in the future?

In fact, premenstrual breast tenderness is not directly related to breast cancer! However, it means that people with such troubles are extremely sensitive to hormonal changes such as estrogen and progesterone, and are relatively more likely to induce the risk of uterine fibroids. And during the symptoms of such women, they are more likely to induce edema, depression and other conditions.

Female hormones are invisible and intangible, but they greatly affect the health of women of all ages. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, hormonal imbalance leads to menstrual syndrome, and regulating the liver meridian is a shortcut to cure!

How does Chinese medicine treat the chest pain problems of female friends before their menstrual period?

TCM meridian theory holds that, in simple terms, the Liver Meridian of Foot Jueyin of the Twelve Meridians will pass through the nipple, while the Stomach Meridian of Foot Yangming will run through the entire breast. Therefore, the health of the breast affects the status of the Liver and Stomach Meridians.

Among them, the liver is related to the endocrine of the human body, and the stomach is related to the metabolism of the body, both of which are responsible for the transportation and transformation of body functions. When the liver qi is stagnant and the blood circulation of the stomach is out of balance, the human breasts will begin to swell and become unobstructed, causing the breasts to feel oppressed.


The main cause of PMS is liver stagnation - irregular menstrual periods!
PMS is the most common troubling problem affecting reproductive women, with an incidence of more than 60%. It affects the quality of life of women during the menstrual period, and also affects the psychological level.

PMS is mainly a manifestation of "liver stagnation". Women are born with physical hardships, including menstruation, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, which will deplete yin blood. If coupled with staying up late, and long-term stress, it will deplete yin blood even more.

Symptoms include headache, abdominal pain, bloating, breast tenderness, constipation, fatigue headache, stagnation of gas, menstrual pain, blood clots, edema, and other symptoms. Emotional irritability, anxiety, sleep disturbance, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, etc.

Western medicine believes that it is related to the abnormality of hormones such as progesterone and estrogen, and neurotransmitters in the brain. Treatment is generally based on symptom relief, such as pain relievers.

Chinese medicine believes that treatment is at the root, conditioning the constitution, and rooting out the cause. Premenstrual syndrome is mainly related to the function of "liver" and the disorder of "liver meridian".

Normal work and rest and TCM conditioning
