Does your bra look like this?
Is Something Staining Your Bra!
This is really important! So I’ll forego the embarrassment for the greater good! We need to clean some toxins out of our bodies and especially those moms who are nursing!
Usually, I am private about the amazing insights the Creator gives me in my business of helping others, mostly children. Many times, a mom will ask questions and I get to help her too. This is a modest area, but it is making me crazy how many people I see that have this same issue. It’s got to be around 90% of the women I see that have this.
Feel the need of an additional disclaimer! I am NOT a doctor, just did some coursework in university and decided to go the nutritional route. I have many medical friends and neighbors whom I value and respect (and they value me). As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Nutrition Response Tester, I am sharing my experience and leading you to evaluate. If you need to see a doctor please do. I was able to repair this issue through food and food supplements.
One day I go to a colleague and and ask him to double check my “find”. I tell him I have stains on my bra where my nipples “sit”. When I test it, I test for hormone disruption with chemicals and more specifically for plastic mix and petroleum. He confirms the finding. So we begin the protocol. It took a few months. But it scared me that this was in me when I nursed my third son.
Where do we get plastic mix and petroleum?
- isopropyl alcohol in skin care
- laundry detergents
- and housecleaning
- Breathing fumes at the gas station
- bottled water (researched ingredients in plastic bottles; affects of heating plastic in transport and warehouse storage)

Why is the breast affected?
“Research conducted by NIEHS/NTP scientists suggests that the mammary gland, the milk-producing structure in the breast,
is uniquely sensitive to the effects of toxic chemicals.” Read all here
“As a result of hormonal activity, the breast…during pregnancy…the fatty tissue is largely replaced by glandular tissue…which secrete milk”

Trying to keep short, but so much information! Do your research. Ask your doctor. Find a natural doctor or medical doctor naturally and nutritionally minded.
But simplified, the female breast is glandularly affected by hormones. These hormones cause secretions. It got fuzzy when I thought I was secreting milk, but discovered (after nursing!) I was secreting toxins that were staining my bra. Plastic mix is a known hormone disruptor. Just putting the pieces together as they came for me. Bottled water is certainly a contributor (which I guzzled exorbitantly during nursing!) as well as conventional cleaning supplies and skin care products I used. These factors have been changed, but the toxins remain. So here is our protocol!
Here is what is working for me and the ones I help to get rid of stains in bra and toxins from body:
- Clean bra with Organic Soap Nuts
- Scrub with Pure-Castile Soap
- Use natural products to clean your home and body (think baking soda, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide!) links
- Avoid bottled water, use something like Glass Beverage Bottle. Less chance of leaching any chemicals. (NOT going to debate which chemicals leach, but basic science of heat transfer works here) More tips to reduce plastics.
- Take restoring and rebuilding supplements
- Exercise to remove toxins
- Try juicing resource link
- Bone broth that is properly prepared as linked, the broth will nourish the body with minerals which support the detox and chicken stock will help heal the mucosal lining in the small intestines. Read this by Eat Naked and this, regarding breastfeeding.

Fostering Nutrition for you and yours!
Sorry male readers; you are probably affected as well. Yet you do not wear an article of clothing repeatly against your skin. I’ll have to start testing this.
