Many women these days are in search of a natural breast enhancement in a form of pills, herbal supplements, special exercises, food and diet recommendations, etc. Some choose an easy way out and go for silicon implants, that over time has been blamed to cause many health problems including breast and lung cancer and autoimmune diseases. I’m not going to discuss or comment on life choices that some women make, but would rather focus on practical recommendations based on herbal and cultural traditions all over the world that are related to natural breast growth.
The following recommendations are not just for grown women. They will work on teenage girls or men who want to grow breasts related to transsexual/transgender choices. Also the opposite is true: if you are a mother of an adolescent girl who suffers from an extreme preteen breast growth, you should try to avoid giving her the food and herbal suggestions I’m about to present.
In China, if parents of a teenage girl want to induce “forced” breast growth, it not uncommon for then to make a chicken soup made out of only one part of a chicken- it’s head. A chicken head is rich in estrogen and I heard many success stories from parents that fed their adolescent girls “chicken head” soup 3-4 times a week. Go to a butcher store and ask them to save you a few heads from the chickens they sell. Put 3-4 of them to make a soup (don’t forget the veggies), but make sure to take the heads out and discard them if you serve it to a young girl or she will never eat it out of disgust. This remedy will work on grown adults as well.
The second method is to use any herbs that contain estrogen precursor (Fenugreek is my only recommendation at this point)- the substance body will use to produce its own hormone only in the amount necessary for healthy functions. Fenugreek has a long- over 100 years- reputation in formulas designed for “female” related problems. It contains diosgenin that is commonly used by pharmaceutical companies to make seminatural form of estrogen. Estrogen is known to cause the growth of breast cells and also water retention, and it’s often common for women on a birth control pill that has estrogen to to increase in breast fullness because of the water retention.
Natural plant estrogen precursor phytoestrogen containing in fenugreek and other plants doesn’t cause side effects like the pill. Some women use fenugreek sprouts in a salad or grind the sprouts in a blender together with a little castor oil (for quick absorption) and apply topically by massaging the resulting paste into the breasts. If sprouting fenugreek seeds is too troublesome, you can make a powder out of the seeds and fix it with castor oil to create the paste as well.
Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis), Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa), Ginkgo biloba, Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Alfalfa, Burdock Root, Suma, etc. are commonly used in China and in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) to treat all kind of menstrual and menopausal symptoms. These herbs also contains estrogen precursor can be bought in any Vitamin shoppe. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should consult with your doctor before taking any herbal substances. They call them medicinal herbs for a reason.
There is also concern that using plants containing phytoestrogen can increase a risk of breast and uterine cancers in some women who have a family history of cancer. It is my belief that a healthy lifestyle and a diet full of greens, fruit and healthy fats (flax seed and hemp oils, cod liver oil, etc.) would certainly diminish and even remove any possibility of getting a cancer.
