When you live with fibroids (benign tumors growing in the uterus), you know the pain and discomfort that comes along with them. EmpressBody has been researching holistic methods to help you with your fibroids which include our own specially designed treatment and how small changes to your diet will help you slim your fibroids down – that’s right you can put your fibroids on a diet!
Can a Fibroids Diet Help?
Scientists have not figured out exactly why fibroids occur, the overproduction of estrogen is thought to play a role. Some fibroids treatment include reduction of estrogen, but you may be unknowingly receiving estrogen from the foods you eat.
For example, some produce is sprayed with environmental estrogens, like xenoestrogens; which is why eating organic fruits and vegetables is almost always a better option. You also want to eat foods that support the liver. As with most conditions linked to hormones, any preventative measures you take on your own should focus on helping your body efficiently get rid of excess toxins through the liver.
Foods to Focus On
Consider adding these foods to your anti-estrogen diet plan:
● Cruciferous vegetables help the liver detox. Broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, kale, turnips, watercress, radish and arugula are all great choices. Avoid overcooking these vegetables so that they retain most of their nutrients. ● Foods to help detoxify your body are also recommended. Garlic, carrots, beets and drinking plenty of water will help with detoxification. ● Foods that contain carotenes should be added to your diet for fibroids. Apricots, sweet potato, cantaloupe, carrots, pumpkin and spinach are all sufficient sources. ● Eat foods containing vitamin E, like almonds, wheat germ, hazelnuts and cod liver oil. ● Natural anti-inflammatory foods can help as well. Pineapple and fresh rosemary have been shown to help decrease inflammation. ● An antioxidant called polyphenol, which is found in green tea, can help to counteract the effects of estrogen. ● Consider taking a multivitamin every day. Look for one that has 100% daily value for vitamins: B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B12 and B6. Vitamins C, D, E and folic acid should also be included, as well as a max of 15,000 IUs of beta-carotene (vitamin A).
Foods to Avoid
These foods should be reduced in your diet to help regulate estrogen levels in your body:
●Red meat, alcohol, animal fats, cheese, cream, butter, ice cream and chocolate have all been shown to raise levels of estrogen. The fat from turkey and chicken should also be trimmed before cooking. ● Low-fat milk should be swapped for whole milk. ● Artificial sweeteners should also be eliminated; remember to read the ingredient list on the food label. ● Soya products have been shown to increase estrogen levels, so cut these out as well.
Living with fibroids can be uncomfortable and painful. Doing everything you can at home to benefit your body in the fight against fibroids, can help improve your biological system and decrease the symptoms of fibroids that you experience.
