However, it is safe to say that all these symptoms can be helped with nutrition.
Besides the usual low-fat, high- fiber, plenty of raw foods diet the following
supplements may be helpful: CoEnzyme Q 10 (a powerful antioxidant, which
prevents free radical damage), Germanium (a fast-acting pain killer and
tissue oxygenating agent), Kelp (for iodine, the lack of which has been
linked to benign breast diseases), Vitamin E, and of course the adequate
doses of C, B-complex and beta-carotene. (More info in "A Prescription
for Nutritional Healing" by James and Phyllis Balch, Avery Publishing
Group, NYC). Good nutrition, positive attitude and clean living will go
a long way to keep your breasts healthy. But please have them examined by
a physician annually, and explore other options thoroughly before doing drugs.
