Dr. John Myers pioneered the clinical use of minerals as early as the 1930s and lectured at dozens of medical seminars across the country. However, since his protocols didn't involve surgery or any patentable medicines, they were never publicized.

One of his treatment programs was for fibrocystic breast disease and it substantially reduced or eliminated both the cysts and the symptoms for a very large majority of women. The treatment includes iodine swabbed into the vagina, immediately followed by an IV injection of magnesium. The iodine needs to be placed as close to the ovaries as possible to get the best results and the magnesium helps the iodine work.

Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, MD, still performs this procedure for severe cases of fibrocystic breasts. And he says, for less severe cases, the supplements can be swallowed. This procedure does not negate the need to change the diet. Caffeine should still be completely avoided and a natural form of vitamin E and selenium should be taken along with either primrose or black currant oil and B6 before menstruation. Progressive Labs sells the best vitamin E combination supplement.

Foods containing iodine include kelp, onions, seafood, egg yolks, radishes, watercress and fish. Some foods, called goitrogens, should be omitted from the diet as they hinder iodine utilization. These include kale, cabbage, peanuts, soy flour, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, kohlrabi and turnips.  Foods containing magnesium are avocados, wheat germ, almonds, shredded wheat, pumpkin seeds, cashews, nuts, spinach, bran flakes, oatmeal, lentils, bananas, shrimp, tahini, raisons, whole wheat bread, kiwi, and humus.

It should be noted that supplementing with minerals should always be monitored by a physician or nutritionist because the dose needs to be adjusted as the condition subsides. Mineral deficiencies can cause all kinds of problems but mineral overdoses can be even worse. The goal is to bring the body back into balance which can usually be done within a few weeks or months. After that, a balanced diet can usually sustain balance with an occasional help from supplements.
