Food For Fibroids

What Not To Eat With Fibroids – 3 Types Of Food To Eliminate

If you have fibroids, you probably already know that getting your diet right is very important. What not to eat with fibroids is just as important as what you should be eating, as the wrong foods can worsen your symptoms considerably.

The main themes of what not to eat are:-

1. Minimize Toxic Foods
2. Minimize High Glycemic Index Foods
3. Avoid Foods Contributing To Hormonal Imbalance

With these three pointers in mind, lets take a look at 3 uterine fibroid “sinners”!

1. Dairy products are believed to be a food group which can aggravate fibroid symptoms. They can cause allergies, inflammatory conditions and create mucous, clogging up your digestive tract. Dairy products often contain unwanted hormones, pesticides and antibiotics as these are often fed to cattle during feeding to increase production.

2. White sugar is another product forming part of the “what not to eat with fibroids” group which you should avoid as much as possible. Sometimes referred to as the “sweet poison”, when eaten it causes large spikes in your blood sugar levels which results in huge insulin secretions. This in turn can lead to diabetes. Sugar can also put a strain on the liver, creating hormonal imbalances and can also lead to harmful bacteria growing in the digestive tract.

3. Refined carbohydrates are another food group to miss out. Once they are stripped of their nutrients, these can clog up your digestive tract and result in toxic build up. The chemical structure is similar to sugar and so the effect is also similar.

If you are seriously looking at ways to manage your fibroids, changing your diet to a fibroid-friendly one and carefully considering what not to eat with fibroids is a very important element of natural treatment. However, it is just one of many protocols which must be followed if you want to see real and lasting results.

Written by a nutritionalist, health writer and former fibroids sufferer herself, the system I recommend is groundbreaking, and I am confident that you will finally feel that you have found something that will work for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    My girlfriend has fibroids. What to do?
    She is scheduled for a hysterectomy in November. Between now, and then I don’t know if I can hold out. She complains of pain daily. When she is in pain she lashes out at me (screams and hits things).

    We have been living together for over three years. She has been verbally abusive, and demonstrating a great deal of road rage. This abusive temper comes and goes. Sometimes I don’t see it for 6 months, then suddenly it returns. It increased say three-fold since about May. I am at my wits end. My health has turned bad since about May. My blood pressure, is averaging is 180/100. Normal for me is about 130/70. Recently I get bad heart-burn from eating spicy food, have been suffering from diarrhea, indigestion, insomnia, ear infections., bleeding from my ear. Until recenlty, I was in very excellent health! Now I see a doctor almost every week!

    Is my health due to her hot temper?
    Will this end after her hysterectomy?

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone is different, but I had fibroids and never acted like that before my hysterectomy. It’s possible she reacts differently to pain – I know it can get old, and hormones may be coming into play. Urge her to discuss it with her gyn. or see if she can get some counseling to help her cope with it.

      As far as your symptoms, it sounds like a reaction to the stress. What does your doctor say about it? You might try taking a few minutes each day to thoroughly relax yourself in whatever way that works. It’s hard on the body to be stressed so much all the time.

      Good luck with all of this, and hopefully when the hysterectomy is done, things will improve with your girlfrined. You still need to work on your stress-reaction and see if you can find a better way to relieve it.

  2. QUESTION:
    Nutrition and Uterine Fibroids?
    Hi All! I’m hoping someone can guide me in the right direction for improving my nutrition while trying to treat my uterine fibroids. I may need surgery, but in the meantime, I’d like to make sure I’m helping with my diet (or at least not aiding growth.) I’m aware that I should be avoiding meat products, sugar, spicy foods, dairy and caffeine. Those are the no-brainers. But, I’m getting conflicting info on foods such as: apples, cherries, plums, peanuts, brown rice and oats. These, and others, are on both the “avoid” and the “add to your diet” lists. Anyone have any info and/or suggestions on places to get info? Thanks all.

  4. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had fibroid that shrunk after using herbal remedies?
    After having a scan recently, I was told that I have fibroids which are two inches big. I did some extensive research and came across a website that advises women to use herbal remedies, control their diet and do exercises to reduce them. Has anyone followed that sort of advice and shrunk them? If so, please let me know what natural products you used, which foods to avoid and any exercise that worked for you. I wish to avoid surgery or homone treatments as I hope to have kids sometime in life. Thanks for any input.

    • ANSWER:
      You should give yourself a pat on the back for avoiding surgery!!!

      The problem with fibroid tumors can simply be resolved by restoring proper progesterone levels, which restores normal growth and shedding of the endometrium.

      Recommendations for healing fibroids by Dr. John Lee:

      WHAT TO DO:
      *Use natural progesterone cream.
      *Eat a plant-based, fiber rich diet (at least 20-30g fiber per day)
      *Take a liver-supporting and detoxifying herbal formula that includes the following herbs: Bupleurum, milk thistle (silybum marianum), barberry or goldenseal, burdock root, yellow dock, dandelion root. {Green Qi would be great for this}
      *Take a uterus-healing herbal formula that includes some or all of the following herbs: myrrh, red raspberry, cayenne, Bupleurum, yarrow, vitex and lady’s mantle (Alchemilla mollis)
      *Use a castor oil pack 2-4 times a week (many books on herbal healing have instructions on how to make and use a castor oil pack.)

      WHAT TO AVOID:
      *Unopposed estrogen
      *Dairy products
      *Feed-lot meats (eat only range-fed, organic meats free of drugs and pestiside residue)
      *Coffee (heavily sprayed with DDT)

  5. QUESTION:
    I have PCOS and I need to severely alter my diet, but I’m not sure what’s healthy and what’s not! Help?
    I’m 18 and I’ve just been diagnosed with PCOS and fibroids so my doctor told me that this is all because of an intolerance to insulin so I have to cut down drastically on sugars/carbs/etc. What I don’t get is how drastically am I supposed to cut down? I know that the body needs SOME carbohydrates, but I don’t really know how much is too much and where I should cut myself off. It’s terrible because I’m trying to stick to a diet, but I don’t know what I should or shouldn’t be eating and it’s extremely important for me to get healthy now more than ever because I’m young enough to reverse the effects. Some days I hardly eat anything because I’m practically scared to death that I’ll eat the wrong things, and other days I’m so starving I can’t stop myself!

    So basically, for someone with polycystic ovary syndrome due to an intolerance for insulin, what kind of foods should I be eating/not eating and how much?

    • ANSWER:
      one slice of whole grain bread per day is all you need, cut out all other carbs and get yourself back in balance, eat green and yellow veggies, broiled and baked fish and white meat chicken, low fat dairy in moderate ammounts, no potatoes, no rice, no chips no noodles, no spaghetti. and on and on. you can buy vegetable spaghetti sometimes, its a squash the inside of it is like spaghetti and you can put tomato sauce on it.
