25 Mar A wonderful ritual to prevent breast cancer
Did you know that studies indicate that breast massage is likely to reduce your risk of breast cancer? Researchers at the UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that mechanical forces alone could revert and stop the out-of-control growth of cancer cells. So squeezing on malignant mammary cells can guide them back into a normal growth pattern. That gives hope and can make a wonderful ritual to prevent breast cancer.
Cancer thrives where toxins accumulate. With the discovery that certain plant extracts and essential oils have powerful tumour-reducing, lymphatic-stimulating and hormone-balancing qualities, too, Natural Yogi´s Breast and Chest massage oil is ideal to create a ritual of a regular chest and breast massage. It is gorgeous-smelling and stimulates flow and elimination within the breast tissue.
Moreover, powerful about this oil is it´s relaxing and uplifting, breath-opening effect, which you will instantly feel. Being a Chest and Breast Massage Oil – it is not just for women. Our chests are where we hold the tension of anxiety – which often we are not even aware of. Regular massage of this area allows us to become more aware of this tension, release it, become light, and open to the world again.
How to massage your breast
Natural Yogi recommends some instructional videos and resources around breast and chest massage, which we would like to share here as well:
- This link by the Breast Health Project points to a video on how to do a lymphatic drainage breast massage
- A Huffington Post article on scientific evidence to confirm that breast massage contributes to cancer prevention
- A demonstration of the Taoist technique of breast massage by Jutta Kellenberger
- Another video on lymphatic drainage breast massage by Psychetruth
Depending on how much time you have, after doing your breast massage, work with little circular movements into your chest area, into any areas that are sensitive. You can work your fingers even under your ribs into the attachments of your diaphragm. At the centre of the chest is your thymus gland, an important gland for our immunity. Many techniques recommend thumping it to increase our life energy and vitality.
These are simply guidelines. In the end, you will come up with your own routine that works for you. You can combine this ritual with breath work or tapping (EFT) as well for the extra battle against anxiety.
The Breast and Chest massage oil contains powerful extracts of, in particular, Frankincense as well as the essential oils of Geranium, Grapefruit, Thyme and Chamomile.
Frankincense essential oil has powerful anti-inflammatory, anxiety-busting and mood-lifting qualities. It opens the breath and is effectively used for asthma. There is also a lot of research and excitement around Frankincense’s anti-cancer – or tumour-reducing – qualities. These in specific relate to Boswellic Acid, a compound of Frankincense found in the resin. Natural Yogi Chest and Breast Massage Oil includes not only the essential oil of Frankincense but also an infusion of the resin.
Grapefruit essential oil adds its lymphatic-stimulating qualities, stimulating the detoxifying effect of the lymph in our breast tissue and reducing water retention levels. Along with the Frankincense, it has a notable uplifting effect on our mood.
Geranium oil adds hormone-balancing, calming, anti-microbial and mood-enhancing beautifying qualities. It is effectively used to soothe PMS and Menopausal symptoms, releasing also excess water retention. Along with Frankincense, it is famed for its skin healing and anti-aging qualities. It encourages blood flow below the surface of the skin and has astringent and tonic effects, tightening the skin to reduce wrinkles and increasing muscle tone – all of this along with a wonderfully soothing and uplifting effect on our psyches.
Thyme and Chamomile essential oils have both been found to be highly effective in selectively inhibiting and killing breast cancer cells (in-vitro).
Use a natural deodorant
Not only can this everyday ritual of breast massage reduce your risk of breast cancer. In addition, the choice of your deodorant can contribute to the prevention. Many conventional deodorants contain aluminium compounds. These aluminium compounds in antiperspirants temporarily block sweat glands to inhibit perspiration. That not only decreases the ability to control your temperature, but these aluminium compounds can also build up in breast tissue and produce some oestrogen-like effects. Over the years, there were many indications that this antiperspirants and breast cancer are linked.
Natural deodorants are an effective alternative to chemical-laden antiperspirants, with an awareness in particular of what we take into the lymphatic tissue of our armpits that connects directly to our mammary tissue. Moreover, these deodorants don’t restrict the flow of perspiration so that toxins don’t build up in the breast tissue. Read more about deodorants and breast cancer here.
