Fibroids And Foods To Avoid

Foods To Avoid With Fibroids – 3 Dietary Ingredients To Watch Out For

What we eat has a significant impact on all aspects of our health and the relationship between what we eat and fibroid growth is well-documented. Indeed, there are a number of foods to avoid with fibroids, but it is important to understand that there are a number of other influential factors, including our lifestyles and hereditary issues.

If you have fibroids, it is important to eat a very healthy diet which includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, wholegrains, sprouting beans, seed and nuts. In addition, a small amount of lean, organic meat is fine too. However, there are a number of foods to avoid with fibroids and below are three of the main culprits:

Processed Foods

Foods which are processed are generally stripped of their nutrients, including fiber and many soluble vitamins. In addition, processed foods sometimes contain undesirable artificial additives and chemicals which can aggravate existing fibroids and, when put alongside other factors, can trigger the condition. The foods to avoid with fibroids in this group include processed meats, such as sausages and salami and cakes and biscuits made with white flour.

Alcohol and Caffeine

The body recognises alcohol as a poison and it is toxic for the body. It can interfere with liver function and a correctly-functioning liver is essential for the body’s natural detoxification process. Caffeine is known to over-stimulate the production of hormones, an excess of which is believed to be a contributory factor in fibroid growth. Therefore, although thought to be acceptable in small quantities for non sufferers, alcohol and caffeine are both foods to avoid with fibroids.


Although believed to be beneficial for sufferers of heart disease and certain cancers, some studies have indicated a link between soy consumption and a disruption of fibroid function. This can cause pregnancy and fertility issues.

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

    What foods containing estrogen do I avoid due to uterine fibroids and newly pregnant?
    I am newly pregnant and have uterine fibroids, which grow from estrogen. I am trying to avoid foods that contain extra estrogen because of this. BUT Im avoiding foods that contain extra estrogen. But am I avoiding foods rich in phytoestrogens OR foods containing a natural estrogenestrogen compound phytoestrogen – or both?

    • ANSWER:
      Foods that contain phytoestrogens include soy foods such as tofu, soy milk, tempeh and soy protein powder –

      Other foods have estrogenic effects, meaning that the body can “mistaken” them for estrogen: fennel seed and cinnamon

    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.)

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

    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.

    High blood pressure, too risky?
    My mom had hysterectomy do to uterine fibroids. Her blood pressure was kind of high before she had her surgery, so they had to control it. It’s been 1 month, and 2 weeks since her surgery, and she’s going back to work. Today she went to the casino where she works (she works as a housekeeper), they took her blood pressure, and the nurse was surprised saying that her blood pressure was 168/116, it was taken like at noon. The nurse told her to stop eating a lot of salty foods (go figure, my mom puts a lot of salt in her foods), and to avoid eating a lot of fat, etc. She also told her to go checked up, so she could take medication. Is this too risky, what does she need, has this ever happend to anybody? Thanks…
