In January of 2011 I had an abnormal thermography breast scan after 6 years of normal scans. I was pretty scared.
I did the following things:
1. A liver cleanse
2. Took out all the sugar from my diet (this included grain and fruit)
3. Stopped wearing chemical deodorants
4. Started taking D3, Iodine, and Cerciferous vegetables.
5. Found a way to stop wearing a bra.
Now #5 was tricky. You see, I am a teacher, a thermography technician, and a food coach. All have a need for a certain amount of “professionalism.” You can’t just show up to work with “obvious” signs of being without a bra.
This is where my mind began to think like McGyver. (He is one of my heroes, don’t you know!) I had to find a way to solve this dilemma with items I already owned. It started by a friend giving me a great piece of advice. She has had a similar experience in going without a bra and said she uses cotton T’s under her shirt. This was the first step.
The second step was finding what I like to call “breast freedom blouses.” They have very specific qualities. First, they must be loose fitting. Second, they must have a bit of texture or pattern to them. This helps hide the “nipple” . Third, they need to have been sewn in such a way as to create the appearance of being tailored. Simple seams in front create the allusion of tight fitting without being such. I also appreciate the joys of cotton or linen. It is natural and can breathe easily. Wouldn’t you know it, I had 4 in my wardrobe just waiting for me. I have collected many more since, and continue to feel professional and happy.
I have now dropped 53 lbs., been without a bra for 7 months, and have had a recent thermography scan that showed “almost” back to normal. It feels healthy for me to be without a bra and I would never go back. I have to say I notice less sagging as well.
My friend recently sent an article about the mini tramp, and the following information was in it:
Restrictive clothing prevents the flow of both blood and lymph. Wearing a bra to prevent sagging breasts actually weakens the muscles and connective tissue which helps to create sagging breasts. The free movement of the breasts during walking and exercise helps to pump the lymph through the breast tissue.
The breasts are excretory and need to be able to release toxins. If a bra is chinching the tissue, even slightly, it is preventing the lymph nodes from draining properly. So, if you are like most women, you wake in the morning and put on a bra. You wear it until you get undressed for bed. This is usually for more than 12 hours. Do you really need anything else adding to your risk of breast cancer?
I hope this will inspire others to “Breast Freedom”. Classic “Breast Freedom Blouse”
