What is Breast Pain And Swelling
Breast pain and swelling can be caused by a number of things. It can occur when your breasts become swollen to the point where they are tender to the touch and even sometimes when light clothing touching can maybe cause pain. This condition can make it painful to do the simplest of tasks or even simple movements like walking.
One cause of breast swelling can be monthly water retention due to a menstrual cycle or PMS. In addition to PMS symptoms, water retention can also be caused by excess sodium (salt) in your diet which naturally causes the body to hold more water than it requires for optimal function.
There can be other reasons breast pain and swelling can occur including a disease called fibrocystic breast disease although don;t panic because this is much less common than water retention. This is not dangerous but it does cause cysts to form in the breast tissue and so you should get checked by a your medical doctor if you believe you may have more than water retention due to PMS.
Caffeine also contributes to water retention and so consuming excess caffeine (eg, coffee) can irritate the condition and contribute to the swelling. Its better to keep caffeine consumption to a minimum if you have swollen breasts due to fluid retention to reduce the pain and swelling if possible.
Even if you’ve been diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease if any new lumps form you should have it checked by a doctor again as a matter of precaution. However breast pain due to swelling during the menstrual cycle is usually caused by water retention.

Breast Pain/Swelling Remedies
The first step in eliminating breast pain and swelling is to reduce the amount of salt in your diet. That means not only sprinkling less on your food at the dinner table; it is also wise to read product labels and not eat anything with a high salt (sodium) content. This will include many packaged and processed foods.
Maintaining a diet with whole, natural foods is not only beneficial to eliminate water retention it is a wise diet choice for general health benefits. Bananas are a good natural food because the large amount of potassium in bananas can counter the sodium levels in your body. If you are consuming caffeine on a daily basis you will also need to reduce the amount of soda or coffee that you drink to no more than one or two servings a day.
Drink more water!
It sounds strange to drink water if you body is holding more water than usual but in fact drinking water has quite the opposite effect on your body. Drinking more water encourages your body to rid excess water. 8 glasses of clear water each day should be a minimum requirement for healthy body function.
There are also many herbals that can assist your body in removing excess fluids and reducing breast pain and swelling.
These herbs either help the lymphatic system filter out the fluids or they help the liver with its job of filtering toxins from the body. Cleaver, dandelion, horsetail and burdock root will all help the body flush away excess fluids.
Taking these herbs can help keep your body clean, detoxify and stop breast swelling and pain.
