How to Treat Breast Cancer with Herbal Remedies ?

Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in developed countries. It affects the tissues of the breast first. It affects one in eight women and is the number two cancer killer of women. The cells undergo abnormal growth and go out of control. This form of cancer is likely to occur in both women and men, although it is more common in women. In majority of the cases, it starts from the ducts or lobes, while in some cases, it starts from the cellular lining of the milk ducts.

However, mortality due to breast cancer has been reduced in the last decades due to the advent of technology which has made the earlier detection possible.

An Ayurvedic view of Breast Cancer

According to Master Sushruta (Father of Surgery), aggravated doshas get accumulated in the particular area of the body which causes excess aberration in the muscular tissues and in that area, circular, mild, stable and painful growths develop which develop with time. Such abnormal and prominent growths are termed as "Arbuda" (cancerous mass).

Secondly, improper lifestyle and diet lead to the imbalance of all the three doshas leading to breast cancer.
