Breast Health and Lymphatic Drainage
There have been many discussions regarding contributing factors in breast cancer in the past, none of them having been shown to conclusively cause cancer. There are however some measures that women can take to limit congestion in this area. Lymphatic movement can be slowed down by ill fitting bras. Underwired-bras can also create a level of restriction. It would therefore do no harm next time you are choosing a bra, to get fitted by a professional (approx 80% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra!). It is also adviseable to let your breasts have as much 'wire free' time as possible, to encourage the movement of lymph in this area. Body brushing can also encourage movement of lymph as well as removal of suface dead skin.
