Although I have written this section with breastfeeding mums in mind, it is the same whether you are any age or gender or stage of life. Nutrients needed. Without these the body issues warnings. They get ever more insistent. They can not be shut down. Ultimately will get so loud – you HAVE to do something. Ideally provide what is needed.
If you keep silencing your body no resolution of the problems (warnings) can happen.
You must – as with a car – feed your body nutrient dense fuel.
Even repair yourself – as is intended.
When women make milk – it is actually blood – in acupuncture terms – from Blood energy
Blood energy is what keeps women sane able to sleep and to run their cycles also to keep the hair on their heads, their complexion blooming, eyes clear, and skin and muscles all in order. Well – optimal health.
We make Blood from what we are able to assimilate from what is taken in as food and from hydration.
The better quality we fuel ourselves – the better the milk we make for our babies.
We could also ask . .
What did we make the actual breasts from?
We make milk from our blood – and the more w lose, or do not make (‘dieting’) or are too stressed to digest/rest well – the less abundance and quality will show through as breast milk – and conversely – the instant you start paying attention – not only will you STOP being so depressed – and worn out – but baby will be sleeping better as the milk is now rich – with all these nutrients.
It all works . .
I trialed it on myself over the 20 years I was feeding my babies!

How are we maintaining our breasts?
Good question – is our Liver Qi flowing?
Perhaps someone needs to give you some of that loving you give to bub??
Here is a quick overview.
Your breasts are an indicator of the strength of your resilience – and as such – when breastfeeding resources are needed – find them here Breasts can be the first part to ‘fall over’ . After bub comes – you may need so much more mothering yourself!!
