Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 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.

  3. QUESTION:
    My mom had a surgery last Friday; what kinds of liquid foods can I prepare for her when she comes back?
    She was rushed to the emergency room last Friday where she was diagnosed with Uterine fibroids, so they had to do a Hysterectomy. The nurses tell me that she will most likely be allowed to return home on Monday, and I want to be ready for when she comes back.

    In the hospital they’re giving her light and liquid meals mainly, such as strawberry jello-o, lemon ice cream, and chicken soup. I’m not the best cook out there, but I’ll do my best to make the best chicken soup for her so she’s comfortable.

    What other (easy to make preferably) liquid foods can I prepare for her? She’s going to be disabled for approximately a month or two, so I want to be ready. I’m doing grocery shopping in an hour or so.

    Thanks!
    Ah, I didn’t know the liquid foods were for the bowel movement; I should have known, since they already mentioned to me that she had to go to the bathroom before she left the hospital.

    So I can feed her anything? Isn’t it better to feed her light things such as salads though?

    • ANSWER:
      These are questions should ask her doctor; I am sure they will give you a list outlining what her dietary needs are; in the hospital they were putting her on a clear liquid diet; to transition back to whole foods, they may suggest doing it slowly, going from clear liquids to soft foods- **** When you have fasted for a period of time, you have to reintroduce foods slowly, so you will not get blocked up or have digestion problems. Depending on how her body reacts to fiber such as salads, I am sure they will outline it for you-

      In the mean depending on what her dietary outline will be: clear liquids; tea, juices like apple, cranberry, jello
      soft foods: dropped egg on toast, oatmeal, pastas, puddings, etc – then most likely whole foods in small quantity; gingerale is always a good thing to have on hand.

      Great chicken soup for the not so skilled [like me] here is what I do- it is simple and it tastes good! by some boneless chicken thighs; simmer in a pot of water, add a teaspoon or two of ‘better than boullion’ boullion – it is excellent – add a bay leaf if you’ve got it – Then on the side, chop up some veggies; onions, celery, carrots, potato – I now nuke the celery, carrots, sautee the onions, and just put the potato in while the chicken is cooking – about 20 minutes; then as carrots and celery are tender, add them and the onions to the batch – and there you have, chicken soup; good, wholesome and delicious.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!!!
