I've heard Iodine supplements help with menstrual related breast discomfort symptoms...do you know?

Hello Anonymous,

Among naturopathic clinicians, it is thought that an iodine deficiency causes breast tissue to become more sensitive to estrogen stimulation which results in swollen and tender breasts.

Consult your physician before starting any herbal supplements.
