How To Treat Fibroids Naturally With Diet

If you would like to know how to treat fibroids naturally with your diet, then this is a great step to take. To achieve total shrinkage and relief from your symptoms, there are a number of different steps you need to take and arguably the most important of these is to change your diet.

Although experts find it difficult to determine the precise causes of fibroids in each patient, there is little doubt that some women have a genetic predisposition towards developing fibroids. Although some believe that there is little you can do about this, your diet can influence your genes and you can gain a tremendous improvement in your condition.

A 10 year study was undertaken in Italy which analysed the diet of hundreds of women and this indicated that women who ate the most read meats and dairy produce were more likely to have fibroids whereas those who ate more green vegetables and other protective foods had fewer incidents of fibroids.

When it comes to how to treat fibroids naturally with your diet, common sense is a great starting point.
* Ensure that your portions are not too large-as even portions of healthy food can cause processing overload.

* With your calories, think “moderate”. You should aim to eat good-quality foods and avoid any which you think are non-organic and therefore potentially loaded with toxins and pollutants.

* If are eating fish, eat freshwater varieties and ensure it is free from contaminents.

* With meat, small portions of lean, grass fed meats are fine.

* Eat sprouts and non-starchy vegetables freely.

* Sugary vegetables and fruits should be eaten in moderation providing you do not have issues with candida.

* Your food should generally be alkaline-forming.

* Avoid dairy foods.

* Avoid processed and refined foods.

* Most of your foods should be eaten raw, where appropriate.

There is no doubt that when you are seeking information on how to treat fibroids naturally with your diet, you should also consider the other protocols which can help, when combined with fibroid-fighting foods. These include cleansing protocols, detoxification, stress management, boosting the immunity and taking supplements.

Fibroids Miracle is written by a nutritionalist who is a former fibroid sufferer and comes with 3 months free one-to-one expert counseling, to teach you exactly how to treat fibroids naturally with diet.

About the author: Gail advocates using natural treatments for fibroids rather than using conventional medication or surgery as this is a workable long term solution. Conventional medication only treats the symptoms and fibroids are likely to regrow, whereas natural treatments, when used properly can eliminate the root cause by rebalancing the body and restoring overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is it possible for uterine fibroids and pregnancy to get confused on ultrasound?
    Is it possible for uterine fibroids and pregnancy to get confused on ultrasound?

    • ANSWER:
      I began having ultrasounds at 6 weeks with my last child and there was always a heartbeat with the embryo.

  2. QUESTION:
    Uterine fibroids during pregnancy?
    I just had my 20 week scan that showed we’re having a healthy baby girl! However besides seeing girl parts, the ultrasound also showed that I have 3 uterine fibroids. The ultrasound tech had the personality of a rock and just said -“they’re benign and they’re small so it’s fine”, and then moved on to the next part of the exam. After I got home I googled it and got scared after reading about an increased risk of still birth and c-section. My next dr. appt isn’t til Tuesday. Any of you ladies out there with any experience with these?

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing will happen at 20 weeks, so don’t worry. You’ll be fine, absolutely normal till your next exam.

      Discuss it with the doctor. They (all people involved) will be monitoring this closely, so don’t worry about still birth either, but relax.

      Worse case scenario if you remain healthy and positive, will be C-section and really, that’s not so bad.

      Anytime after 32 weeks, now I’m guessing, but especially with the baby’s size at 34 – 37 wks. you could have a great, successful, and rewarding c-section with no complications.

      Or you could go to full term. Who knows, wait it out with as much hope and faith as possible, there is nothing to fear but fear itself.

      BTW, both you and baby are healthy.

  3. QUESTION:
    Uterine Fibroids & pregnancy?
    Has anyone gotten pregnant and successfully given birth with a large fibroid? (4cm or larger)? Also, did the fibroid grow with the pregnancy?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi – I had 3 (biggest was approx 3cm dia. at my first scan) and they do tend to fluctuate with hormonal changes and can disappear with the menopause apparently. Mine grew a bit while I was carrying, but not significantly and they were never mentioned again.
      It does depend on where yours are and if they are interfering with anything (like the fallopian tube) and if the location can interfere with conception. Your specialist may recommend removal (its quite a standard procedure) to give you the best chance of conceiving.
      Mine are still there somewhere, but I’ve had 3 successful pregnancies with them. Talk to your doctor/specialist until you are happy you know what your options are. All the best!

  4. QUESTION:
    Is it normal to bleed in pregnancy when you have uterine fibroids?

    • ANSWER:
      Not exactly normal but some types of fibroids can cause this.
      You should talk to a doctor or midwife about this as it could cause premature delivery.

  5. QUESTION:
    uterine fibroids and pregnancy?
    i have all the symptoms of uterine fibroids and my husband and i have been ttc for 6 months now with no luck…could this be why??

    • ANSWER:
      If you think you have uterine fibroids, see a doctor about it before continuing to TTC.

      I’ve been having some medical issues (seriously heavy periods, pain in my right ovary). I was going through the “let’s see what this is” period and scheduling for surgery when I got pregnant again. I lost the baby. Uterine fibroids were one of the reasons given as a possible cause for the miscarriage.

      I’m now on birth control (which we do not like and which I do not want to be on at all). I am going in for surgery in a couple of weeks (partial exploratory to see if I have any growths in my uterus, and a removal of the cyst with the potential removal of the whole right ovary).

      This is something that could not only keep you from getting pregnant, but could cause you to lose a baby if you do get pregnant. I would wait until I got the all clear from a doctor to continue TTC… in a way, that’s what we’re doing now.

      Good luck.
