Help for Breast Pain

Monday, 22 June 2009 03:20 PM

Question: What can I do about breast pain? I have been to six different doctors and have received no effective treatments.

Dr. Brownstein’s Answer:

The most common cause of breast pain is fibrocystic breast disease. It affects more than 60 percent of women. Fibrocystic breast disease is a condition where the breasts become dense, irregular and bumpy. The most common complaint with fibrocystic breasts is breast pain. It was once thought that this illness was benign. Newer research, however, has shown that fibrocystic breast disease is a precursor to breast cancer.

Conventional medicine has little to offer people with this condition. My experience has shown that the most common cause of fibrocystic breast disease is iodine deficiency. Medical research has known about this relationship for more than a century. Correcting iodine deficiency using a combination of iodine and iodide has helped nearly everyone I know who has suffered from fibrocystic breast disease.
