Whole food(herbal medicine) used as medical treatment,  linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has induced much interests in today renowned scientists.
But many researchers have raised question of herbal quality, because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

Cabbage (one of cruciferous vegetable)leaves may be a promising agent for the treatment of breast engorgement during lactation.

Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.

Breast engorgement is a condition of painful breasts caused by overfull of milk, leading to breast swollen in affect of baby feeding and inducing premature weaning, cracked nipples, mastitis. and breast abscess.

According to the joint study lead by the Eulji University Daejeon, of primiparous women after cesarean birth, cabbage compression early breast care (CCEBC) is more effective in relieving breast pain and breast hardness compared group treated with early breast care (EBC) and general nursing breast care (GNBC) alone.

In the review of 4 studies: one RCT and two quasi-randomised studies and one quasi-experimental study, Dr. Boi B, the lead author of the study wrote, " Overall results showed that cabbage leaf treatment used on women with breast engorgement did reduce pain, the hardness of the engorged breasts and increased the duration of breast feeding" and " Cabbage leaf may be useful in the treatment of breast engorgement".

Furthermore, in the comparison of cabbage leaves vs hot and cold compresses, the College of Nursing in AIIMS, New Delhi.suggested that both treatments are effective in decreasing breast engorgement and pain in post-natal mothers.

In support of the above, a double-blind experiment with 21 participants received a cream containing cabbage leaf extract, and 18 received placebo cream, both groups experience of equal pain relief. Mothers perceived that both creams to be effective in relieving discomfort.

Although cabbage leaves may have a potency for treatment of breast engorgement, some researchers believe, feeding the baby still be best application on relieving pain and decreasing tissue hardness.
