The Basics of Breast Health
Breasts are an amazing aspect of the human body. They are at once a source of life, a definition of self, a social taboo and a source of fear. Women live with the fear that their breast tissue may harbor hidden disease and have no real way of knowing that their breast tissue is healthy. We are often completely oblivious to how healthy our breast tissue actually is until the day that a problem appears on a mammogram … until the day that a biopsy says we have cancer.
Given all that the breast tissue is, one thing it is not, is understood. In fact, most textbooks do not even discuss the function of a healthy breast. That is mostly because there is so little that the medical community understands about the breasts. Many doctors assume that the breasts have no function until the birth of a baby at which point the breasts become functional for a period of time, after which they return to their natural "dormant" state. There is virtually no other part of the body that only has function for so limited a period of time.
Or does it?
Actually there is substantial evidence to show that the breasts are storage areas, they interact with our digestive immunity, they react to emotional states and they control our hormones. But because of the general lack of knowing, the breasts are ignored or even feared when it comes to health. It is vitally important for us to explore the mysteries of breast tissue and develop an understanding of their structure, physiology and life process so that we can learn how to prevent breast cancer and breast disease conditions.
Evaluating Your Breast Health
The first step to healthy breast tissue is to know the level of breast health that you currently have.
Many problems that affect the breast tissue are silent, without symptoms. Even malignancy is generally silent. So the best way, the only way, to prevent breast cancer is to identify the ways in which your breast tissue needs to improve.
