There are a variety of symptoms of breast cancer. However, the most easily recognizable is always the seemingly innocent lump or cyst at first.
One school of the theory states that these bumps all arise from stagnant breast milk not discharged in time, therefore accumulate in the mammary glands. They may test benign at first, but eventually, all turn malignant. So one should look out for the bumps and try to remove them as soon as possible.
The good news is it’s possible to remove these early lumps, and even without the scary mastectomy or chemotherapy.
The easiest method is through massage. Work on the areas around the bumps, especially the connecting channels or meridians’ vicinity, and the bumps would become softer and disappear in time. However, this may be the method that takes the longest time.
Next is moxibustion, which is as easy as lighting a moxa cone and approaching specific acupoints. The moxa’s heat would penetrate the skin and into the cyst, where stagnation occurs, softening and removing it. This will be relatively faster than massaging and may take a couple of months before any results can be observed.
There are also acupuncture and TCM prescriptions, which would work faster but require help from a top-notch TCM physician, especially the latter. TCM prescriptions could cure some of the late-stage breast cancers, but probably no more than a handful of doctors in the US can make it happen since the late Master Dr. Ni.
