What are Your Breasts Telling You?
Dr. Northrup is a firm believer in the innate wisdom of the body, and you
can apply a certain measure of symbolism to various body parts. Your breasts,
for example, were designed to feed and nurture your children, as well as for
pleasure. According to Dr. Northrup, women who tend to be most at risk for
breast cancer are those who have difficulty nurturing themselves and
“The first thing you need to understand is you have to learn how to
receive – how to receive rest, how to receive pleasure – and that’s going to
be the primary intervention that I would do. This is the biggest stumbling
block for women: we’re so afraid of appearing selfish.
Here’s what we do to get the nutrients of pleasure and receiving that
we all need for optimal brain health – the beta-endorphin or the feel-good
chemicals in the brain: We import it through alcohol and sugar, when we can
import it directly through self-love, meditation, exercise, and good sex,
which you can do with yourself,” she says.
Bernie Siegel, a pediatric surgeon from Yale, was co-president of the
American Holistic Medical Association with Dr. Northrup in the early ‘90s.
“Bernie used to say, 'I have come to see that the fundamental problem
most patients face is the inability to love themselves,'” she says. “I
remember thinking, 'God, Bernie, that seems pretty simple to me.' And you
know what? He’s right. The older you get, the more you realize this.”
So how do you love yourself when you feel unlovable? Dr. Northrup
suggests a paradoxical strategy she picked up from Gay Hendricks, who is a
pioneer in relationship transformation and body-mind therapies. Simply
meditate on, or use the mantra:
“I don’t feel lovable, so I’m going to love myself for that.”
Another powerful strategy that we use in my practice is a form of energy
psychology known as the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), which also uses
the affirmation to love and accept yourself unconditionally. This really is a
powerful healing affirmation that can have a profound influence. I’ve worked
with tens of thousands of patients, and it can seem like nothing short of
magic when unconditional love and self acceptance is integrated into a
person’s neurology. In many cases, it can resolve physical symptoms quite
According to Dr. Northrup, part of this healing is due to the increase in
nitric oxide, which is found at high levels in your nasal pharynx. This is
one of the reasons why you should breathe through your nose (opposed to
“Think about what happens when you do that. You get an increase in
nitric oxide in every blood vessel in the body. And remember: a capillary is
a micron away from every cell in the body. Nitric oxide is produced by the
endothelial lining of every blood vessel in the body. It’s increased in all
situations of health: self-love, aerobic exercise, antioxidant, vitamins,
eating your vegetables. Nitric oxide is the molecule of life force. It also
balances all the neurotransmitters instantaneously – serotonin, dopamine,
beta endorphin, and all those things for which one in 10 Americans is on an

Get enough sleep: Proper sleep is essential for optimal health,
and it helps metabolize stress hormones better than any other known entity.
Meditate for at least 3-12 minutes each day, to calm and soothe your
Begin your day with a positive affirmation.
Exercise regularly. Ideally, aim for a comprehensive program that
includes high intensity exercises and strength training along with core-
building exercises and stretching.
Breathe properly. When you breathe in and out fully through your
nose, you activate your parasympathetic rest-and-restore nervous system,
which expands the lower lobes of your lungs, and therefore engages the vagus
“Relax the back of your throat. So many women have thyroid
problems – it’s from chronic tension here; because you’re pretty sure your
feminine voice isn’t going to be heard. It hasn’t been heard for 5,000 years.
You’re not alone. But it’s being heard now,” she says.
Practice self love and unconditional acceptance. Dr. Northrup
suggests looking at yourself in the mirror at least once a day, and saying:
‘I love you. I really love you.’
“After 21 days, something will happen to you. You’ll see a part
of you that looks back at you, and you begin to believe it. “I love you. I
really love you.”
Optimize your vitamin D levels. Get your vitamin D level checked.
Ideally, you’ll want your levels within the therapeutic range of 50-70 ng/ml.
According to Dr. Northrup:
“Sunlight is not the enemy. It’s lack of antioxidants in your
diet that is the enemy. Natural light is a lovely source of vitamin D; you
can’t overdose. But many people – to get their levels of vitamin D into
optimal – are going to need 5,000 to 10, 000 international units per day. So,
vitamin D is important. You can get your level drawn through MyMedLab.com
without a doctor’s prescription.”
Just remember that if you take high doses of oral vitamin D, you also
need to boost your intake of vitamin K2. For more information on this, please

Epsom salt baths (20 minutes, three times per week) are a simple,
inexpensive way to get magnesium into your body.

“Remember: every emotion is associated with a biochemical reality
in your body. So, you want to bring in the emotions of generosity, pleasure,
receiving, and open-heartedness. The same things that create heart health
create breast health.”
How to Perform Breast Self-Examinations
Naturally, I couldn’t discuss women’s breast health with Dr. Northrup
without getting her take on breast self-examinations. Surprisingly, research
has shown that self-examinations may be overrated, much like mammograms, in
terms of saving women’s lives.
“There was a huge study done in China that showed that teaching women
how to examine their breasts did not decrease their mortality at all,” she
says. “In fact, all it did was increase the number of biopsies for benign
disease. So, there’s no data that breast self-exam helps with anything.”
That said, she still encourages and recommends a monthly or weekly
“self-love breast massage,” but not to specifically look for anything, or
with the expectation of finding something wrong. Instead, she suggests just
gently and lovingly massaging your breasts and up under your armpit, where
the lymph nodes are located, while taking your Epsom salt bath. The best time
to do it is just after your period, when you have the least amount of
“Massage this with love. You’re not looking for anything,” she says.
“The average woman will find something. We know that breast self-exam, or
just a woman finding something because she knows her breasts, is just as good
as all of these other screenings for finding the fast-growing tumors. See,
the problem with screening is it finds the slow-growing ones that may regress
or wouldn’t go anywhere anyway.
So, for a part of your health, you want to start a practice of
bringing your breast home to your chest. Get to know them in health lovingly.
Don’t use your fingertips, by the way. Use your palm. Otherwise, you’re going
to feel every little gland and freak out. And then if you do find that you
have what’s called a fibrocystic disease where your breasts get tender, start
eating some kelp tablets, because the iodine really helps that in a huge
Taking Control of Your Health is the Best Prevention
The advice offered in this article is that of Dr. Northrup. There are
many additional strategies to help prevent cancer, and breast cancer in
particular. For a list of my top tips, please see this previous article.
One of the most important lifestyle changes you can make is to adopt a
low-glycemic diet and avoid sugar in all its forms, especially fructose.
Excess sugar increases insulin which, along with high blood sugar, changes
the way estrogen is metabolized in your body. Elevated estrogen levels is a
risk factor for breast cancer, so you’ll want to avoid estrogen dominance. If
you are experiencing excessive menopausal symptoms, you may want to consider
bioidentical hormone replacement therapy instead, which uses hormones that
are molecularly identical to the ones your body produces and do not wreak
havoc on your system. This is a much safer alternative.
I agree with Dr. Northrup that health is ultimately about living well
while you’re alive, and placing too much effort on detecting cancer can turn
you into a patient when you’re not actually ill... Cancer screening is not
prevention, and while early detection of cancer is desirable, the
conventional recommendation to get regular mammograms has shown to be more
harmful than helpful. Remember, 10 times as many women are harmed in some way
compared to those whose lives are spared by annual mammograms.
So educate yourself about your options, and embrace your body, your life,
and your health; focusing on living healthy, opposed to searching for that
elusive “something” that might one day kill you.
