OK, is far more effective to ingest the herbs or directing applying them and absorbed by the skin?
The topicals I use vary depending on what I have on hand. I use flaxseed oil every now and then because I know it has worked for others. I also use a lot of cocoa butter with vitamin E to help minimize stretch marks and improve elasticity. Finally, I have experimented with creams that have volufiline, an ingredient that helps to plump the subcutaneous fat. They worked, but they're hard to find with the right concentration (5% volufiline works best).
I am attaching one of the few articles relevant to the matter, called Breast size in relation to endogenous hormone levels. If you can get through the whole thing and half-way understand it, you're doing better than I am!
Let's look at some of the article's findings
So far in this cycle, I have ...
By the way, if your periods are consistent month-to-month, consider yourself very blessed. According to the University of California, 30% of women today do not have regular periods, if they even have them at all.
One other random thought - if you ever changed your mind about lactating, that can be a real fast track to booby growth. Some models like Kristina Milan respond enthusiastically to prolactin - the last two times she had a kid, her breasts looked like they doubled in size.
Mine are not quite regular either. That's why I started charting using an app (there are a few good ones). The more data it gets, the more accurately it can predict things.
lactation. I would rather not go there since I saw friends lose just about everything after their kids stopped feeding.
"I'm gonna have to science the shit out of this."I definitely hope you keep us abreast (pardon the pun) of all of your work. I think it is great!
Thought I'd share a quick update. Things have been rolling along quite well. Made some adjustments to doses this cycle that I think had a big effect. As I mentioned earlier, we've been experimenting with licorice root extract. This is both a potent anti-androgen (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19515171), and can affect estradiol levels (http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00216-011-5061-9). It needs to be used with caution, however. It's recommended to use it for no more than 7 days in a row without a break because it can raise blood pressure. A new cycle started today. Now the hard part begins... waiting for the "red tide" to cease so I can see how much I truly gained. There is always some degree of "false" growth due to normal cyclic swelling, so I don't measure until day 6. I hate the anticipation, but I'm hoping for the best!
Heya! Good stuff there. Thanks for the update. As for licorice, I read that the blood pressure effect is entirely due to increased renal sodium retention, so as long as you've got enough incoming potassium (baked potatoes, yogurt, avocados, bananas, strawberries or any citrus fruit all provide more than any supplements, due to the FDA's weird limit on potassium supplements having a forced ceiling of 99mg), you may be able to give it two weeks straight, unless you are hypertensive to begin with.
Yes I hope you are rewarded for all of your effort, and once you're in the next phase (follicular) you notice mighty booby size gains, and when you get up out of bed in the morning, they feel like heavy watermelons slamming against your rib cage. Ain't nothing hotter!!
That's fantastic news. .3" per month = 3.6" over 12 months. 3.6" of pure new bustline is the dream of every man for his lady!!!!
I measured about 5-7 days prior, so this .3" would be new growth in a much shorter span of time. I have to insert my usual disclaimer here. I already had a degree of hypertrophy/ongoing growth so I'm not a normal case. I'm adding gasoline to what was a rather slow burning fire.
I would imagine your cooking style to very precise as well. Whereas someone would tell you "Oh I just grabbed a small handful of flour and a half-splash of vanilla", you would say "Wait, I think it would be better here if you stated it as 3.44 ounces of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, which if you are using metric would be 97.52 grams of flour and 2.46 milliliters of vanilla extract."
