Fennel based herbal breast enlargement program for proliferative



This is a composite herb program without current BCP use.

During this phase, use breast massage to improve mood and to lower arousal due to high estrogen and testosterone.

A seed containing lignans or a lignan seed includes sunflower, barley, rye, pumpkin, sesame or flax. Flax seed is more powerful, so herb program should start out with other lignan seeds, for menses and premenstrual phases. Usually the measurement of 1 seed will be used, except for a sesame seed, which may be too small an amount.

A minimal and each 1 part amount amount will be 1 whole seed, or an equivalent amount to 1 fenugreek or barley seed.

First tea of proliferative

For the first dose of the phase, fenugreek will be used. Fenugreek is estrogenic, but it has just the right balance of progestogenic properties to be used on the first day of proliferative, before mucus starts. Tea of 1 seed or a minimal amount each: fenugreek, spearmint, barley/sunflower.

Perhaps use an additional 3 seeds total of any combination of barley, sunflower, flax, rye, sesame or pumpkin seed with this.

The tea including fenugreek will be used only once before mucus starts, not limited to the first day. While additional sunflower seed has worked on the first day of proliferative, the amount will be limited to 1 or 2 seeds then.

Reduce the amount of spearmint even further to ½ a rice-grain size. Minimal amounts of sesame seed can likely be added to this.

Fennel based teas

For the rest of proliferative [once mucus starts], 1 seed of fennel [Foeniculum] at a time will be used instead of fenugreek. Mint can only be spearmint or peppermint, while spearmint is preferred and has better properties. [No more than] once a day, when breast shape changes from wide to long, tea of 1 seed or a minimal amount each: fennel, spearmint, barley/sunflower.

Fennel can only be used in combination once cervical mucus starts. Too much fennel, even 1 seed at a time, can cause menses to restart. More barley, sunflower, rye, flax or sesame seed can be helpful for increasing estrogen response and for maintaining proliferative.

Now the idea is to use gradually more sunflower seed, flax, barley or rye to increase estrogen response enough, but not excessively high, during the rest of proliferative phase. From now on, fennel should be limited to 1 seed at a time, once a day or less, depending on signs. Spearmint should always be limited to the tiniest amount.

If you can do so safely, cut a fennel seed in half, so less is used per day/tea.

If the first tea of proliferative phase is missed, but still during early proliferative: a tea of 1 fenugreek seed, ½ fennel seed, 2 sunflower seeds, and perhaps minimal sesame seed can be used.

For the rest of proliferative, use ½ peasize or more of sesame seed to replace spearmint.

Potential substitutes for spearmint

When spearmint is used, the amount is reduced even further to ½ rice-size. Sesame seed partially replaces it or replaces it fully at times.


Sesame seed contains the lignan cyclolariciresinol like spearmint. Sesame seed was tried before as a spearmint replacement, but it didn't work. Either the amount was too small, or it didn't substitute the needed ERα antagonizing properties that spearmint has. Sesame likely improves the effects of spearmint.

A ½ peasize or more of sesame seed replaces spearmint after the first working tea for proliferative phase.

Ginseng like

Ginseng-like herbs should be avoided for those with past hormonal problems, as it is better to be patient and skip proliferative than use ginseng, sage or schizandra. These herbs would require the correct other herbs in the combination.

It [is to] be seen if ginseng, sage or schiandra will be a spearmint substitute for proliferative. These herbs should only be [tried] in minimal amounts, smaller than a fenugreek seed, and not during menses nor premenstrual.
