Pain; Lump/s; Deficiency of milk (Agalactia)

Breasts are present in males as well as females. However, in males they are present in a rudimentary form.

In females, they form an important part of the reproductive symptom. They develop after puberty and further increase in size during pregnancy and lactation.

Some women experience pain and/or lumps in the breast/s, especially before or during the menses.

During pregnancy, the breasts produce a yellowish fluid called colostrum. 2-3 days after the birth of the baby, a hormone prolactin, secreted by the pituitary gland, stimulates the breasts to produce milk.

Breast-milk is the best food for a baby because (1) it is sterile, (2) it is low in fats and high in sugar and (3) it imparts great immunity to the new-born. Breast-feedingis not only economical but also helps to develop a healthy mother-child relationship and acts as a natural contraceptive.

Unfortunately, many city-mothers suffer'from a deficiency of breast-milk, exposing their children to risks of infection and obesity.

Reflex Zone Therapy :

(A) General treatment of the whole body : Start with general treatment as described on page 33.

(B) Specific treatment ol the breasts : The breasts are represented on the dorsal (upper) surfaces of the two feet as shown in the adjoining diagram.

'Walk' your thumb over the trigger areas for the breasts in small steps, taking care not to omit even a smallest spot. During such probing, every time you encounter a sore spot, stop moving the thumb further and with its tip give deep, alternating pressure for about a minute. In this manner, cover the entire breast areas on the two feet.

Repeat this treatment twice a day.

<C) In agalactia also, stimulate the pituitary gland.
