Thermography screenings allow men and women to become intune with their breasts and lymphatic systems, while implementing new ways to further their health through movement and nutrition.
Breast health is a highly talked about topic in both men and women’s lives. Many individuals have created a poor relation with their breasts due to the many horrifying societal breast assumptions. The holistic world allows individuals to break free of their breast health fears and implement practices that promote good breast health. There are several ways to promote good breast health and today we will mainly be focusing on the relationship between your breasts and lymphatic system.
When looking at the images above, you can see there is a men’s chest and women’s breast images. Both thermograms show lymphatic congestion in the breast region. More specifically, lymphatic congestion occurs in all individuals making it extremely common. As years go on, our lymphatic systems begin to drain less and less causing toxins to remain within our lymphs. When an abundance of toxins accumulate in our lymphs, they appear on your thermography screenings. As seen in the images, lymphatic congestion is prevalent in the breast region and in the underarm areas.
There are several easy ways to help drain your lymphatic system. One method that is highly encouraged by Lisa’s Thermography and Wellness is dry brushing. Dry brushing is a way to gently drain your lymphs by taking the dry brush and gliding it on the skin in specific directions. The dry brush card and tutorial video, located in Lisa’s linktree are useful resources to help guide you when dry brushing your body. While it is important to drain your entire body, it is necessary that you are draining your breasts and underarms every day. The first and second steps on the dry brush card explain how to properly drain those regions. On the topic of lymphatic drainage, rebounding is another easy way to promote drainage and simultaneously exercise. A rebounder is a mini trampoline, by regularly jumping from as little as 10 minutes you initiate lymphatic drainage.
In addition to lymphatic drainage, there are several other ways to promote good breast health through movement and nutrition. Generally speaking, everyone must get enough sleep per night, eat a well-balanced diet, and exercise regularly.
Furthermore, Christine Northrup emphasizes the importance of consuming a good amount of iodine and Omega 3 fatty acids. Incorporating a good source of vitamin D supplements into your diet is also essential for good breath health. That being said, not all supplements are meant for everyone, and it is essential to contact your qualified healthcare provider to see if they are right for you. While supplements help maintain our breast health, breast oils are also very effective. Taking a few drops of breast oil and gently massaging the breasts can aid in lymphatic drainage throughout the breast and into the underarms. This breast oil is the perfect combination of essential oils that supports overall breast health.
As nutrition plays a significant role in men’s and women’s breast health, the movement also impacts the breasts. When referring to movement, exercise, and other practices are considered. Exercise has been proven to lower the risk of breast cancer in men and women. This does not mean that you need to go to the gym every day, rather set aside 30 minutes per day of moderate exercise at home if preferred.
With a healthy balance between proper lymphatic drainage, moderate exercise, and a healthy diet, your breast health will continue to flourish. Choosing which methods and habits you prefer are crucial when implementing consistency for your breasts. We encourage you to try all of the suggestions provided and work towards making your breasts the healthiest version of themselves.
