Breast pain is also known as mastalgia which means pain in the breast along with feeling discomfort or uneasiness. There are two main types of breast pain one is cyclic breast pain which is often associated with hormonal changes during the time of menstruation and another type is noncyclic breast pain which does not associate with any kind of menstrual disorder. Most of the times, a woman's body and mind undergo noticeable changes before the onset of periods. Premenstrual Syndrome or PMS refers to the symptoms experienced by women a few days prior to appearance of their monthly periods. The physical symptoms include breast tenderness or swelling, headache, abdominal bloating, constipation, diarrhoea and acne (pimples). The symptoms vary from one woman to another and not every woman experiences all these symptoms. Homeopathy offers an effective treatment for PMS with no side effects. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat pain but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. For example, breast soreness is often a sign of too much estrogen, a condition often caused by the liver that plays an important role in the estrogen metabolism. The homeopathic medicines will detoxify the liver and will restore normal estrogen levels, thus decreasing naturally the discomfort and pain in the breasts.

Hello- Cyclical Breast pain, also known as mastalgia, is a very common complaint among women, especially during the menstrual cycle. Some of the signs of mastalgia are stabbing pain, heaviness, soreness, tenderness and swelling in both breasts. The pain may be mild to severe and occur constantly or only occasionally. Cyclical breast pain occurs due to hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle. On the other hand, non-cyclical breast pain is associated with issues that affect the structure of the breasts, such as cysts, trauma, prior surgery or other factors. It can be cured with few weeks of ayurvedic treatment.
