Breasts: Understanding Your Body's Wisdom


Breasts are a complex and dynamic part of the female body. From cyclical changes and tenderness to concerns about lumps – it's natural to have questions about your breast health. Our body and breasts are always communicating with us, via imbalances, symptoms, soreness etc. It is our job to listen and make a change. 

Arandi believes in the power of your body's innate wisdom and its ability to heal. Our mission is to inspire and empower women to connect with their bodies, fostering a deep trust in their self-healing potential.


Let's explore some frequently asked questions and how a deeper connection to your body can lead to greater well-being:

Can losing weight reduce breast size?

Yes, overall weight loss can lead to a reduction in breast size. Breast tissue is largely composed of fat, so changes in your body composition will naturally affect this area. However, remember that every woman's body is unique, and the degree of change will vary. Focus on nourishing yourself with whole foods and consider gentle cleanses to support overall health.

Why are my breasts sore before my period?

While it's common to experience breast soreness before your period, it may signal a deeper imbalance. Hormonal fluctuations play a role, but factors like diet, stress, and unexpressed emotions can also contribute to discomfort. Through mindful eating, stress reduction techniques, and emotional processing, you can find greater ease within your cycle.

Can stress cause breast pain?

While not a direct cause, stress can heighten your body's sensitivity, potentially making you more aware of existing breast discomfort. Stress impacts our well-being on many levels. Nurturing practices that soothe your nervous system are essential for true healing.

How can I improve my breast skin health?

Your breast skin deserves the same love and care as the rest of your body:

  • Hydration: Stay well-hydrated for supple skin from within.
  • Gentle Skincare: Choose fragrance-free products, and explore the nourishing power of natural oils for gentle cleansing and massage.
  • Sun Protection: Protect your delicate chest and decolletage area from sun damage.
  • Exfoliation: Very gentle exfoliation 1-2 times a week can improve texture.
  • Lymphatic Support:
    • Dry Brushing: Stimulate healthy circulation with light strokes towards the armpits.
    • Castor Oil Packs: This traditional practice supports detoxification and lymphatic flow. Arandi Castor Breast Pads are made of organic (chemical free) cotton fabric produced in the USA and handmade in Oregon. 

Can breast cysts turn into cancer?

The vast majority of breast cysts are benign. However, it's always wise to have any new lumps evaluated by a healthcare professional for peace of mind.

What causes lumpy breasts?

Lumpy breasts (fibrocystic breasts) are common and often related to hormonal shifts. While usually harmless, discuss any changes with your doctor. Remember, true healing goes beyond just managing symptoms—it's about finding the root cause through mindful self-awareness and connecting to your body. To guide and support you in this process we have created a free Ritual Guide to integrate with your Castor Oil Pack therapy. 

Important Reminders:

  • Self-Exams: Become familiar with your body's rhythms through regular breast self-exams.
  • Medical Checkups: Consult your doctor for mammograms and routine health assessments.
  • Trust Your Body: While medical guidance is important, remember that you hold profound wisdom within. Don't underestimate the power of your own self-healing potential.
