Q.  I always have pains in my breast starting about two weeks before my monthly cycle.  Can you tell me why?


A.  It seems that you have been experiencing PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome).  PMS usually starts about 10 days before your period.  During that time period, your hormones change.  For example, your estrogen increases.  Your blood volume increases due to the estrogen increase.  Increased blood volume also increases blood sugar that feeds the yeasts and parasites in your body. When your little enemies are well fed, they ferment and release gas that give you pain.  Another reason is that increased blood volume makes your breast gorge and tender to touch.

The solutions include:

1)      Dietary change: adopting an Anti-Yeast nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Particularly avoid sugar since it may cause mood swings.  My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking gives more information about what you can eat and what to avoid.  You can visit our website at www.drjsbest.com and order the e-book.

2)   Herbal Therapy:  When you experience PMS, usually your body is toxic.  My suggestion is to begin with our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea).  Combine this with Female Vitality to yield fast relief.  Usually my clients report relief after one or two cycles.

3)    Exercise Regularly:

Whatever exercise you are used to, maintain it.  You may also add slow walking of 30 minutes a day.  Exercise improves your blood circulation and prevents the blood volume to stagnate in certain parts of your body.

4)    Manage Stress Effectively:

Stress is correlated with the severity of PMS.  Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download a FREE 10-Minute Meditation guide.  If you practice this “fast” meditation method daily, you will soon be in peace and harmony with your body, mind and spirit.
