I've been grain and nearly totally sugar free for 5 months, and have added red meat back to my diet after nearly 20 yrs. I have seen tons of health benefits - healthier skin, digestion, mood, weight and inches lost, etc., but am confused about my increasingly sore and fibrocystic breasts.
I've searched this and some other sites; read about iodine and how it can help reduce cyst-like activity, as a result of less iodine after a period of paleo nutrition. I've started w/about 140 mg of Potassium Iodide per day for the last 4-5 days, and am only becoming more uncomfortable, likely due to pms kicking into high gear. I also discovered and am being seen by my dr for a lump in my left breast (likely just a cyst, to be biopsied next week).
Have any of you paleo women seen an increase in breast tenderness or fibrocystic breast tissue? Any other remedies in addition to iodine? Thanks in advance!
