Fibroids Or Endometriosis

Shrinking Fibroids Recipe For A Smoothie

If you are looking for ways of shrinking fibroids, your diet is a great starting point. Although to completely eliminate fibroids, you will need to use a multifaceted approach to eliminate all the root causes of your fibroids, there is no doubt that modifying your diet is an absolute necessity.

Indeed, there is evidence to suggest that by cutting out certain food groups and introducing cleansing and nutrition-rich foods, you can begin to ease some of your fibroid symptoms.

With so much dietary information out there, most of us know the principles of healthy eating. Eating a low-fat diet, rich in fresh fruits and vegetables and lean meats and fish is recommended for most people. As far as fibroids are concerned, extra care should be taken to eliminate any foods which have been sprayed with pesticides and any which contain artificial additives. In addition, stay clear of any meat products, such as salamis and sausages.

Concentrating some of the best sources of foods for shrinking fibroids into smoothies is a good way to get a high dose of some of the essential nutrients. One of my favorites is below-enjoy!

Apricot, Apple and Flaxseed Smoothie

3 fresh pitted apricots
1/2 medium apple cut into chunks
2 tablespoons of flaxseeds
1/8 cup lemon juice
1 cup pure water
Dash of cinnamon
Stevia to taste

Soak the flaxseeds overnight and drain. Add all the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more water if necessary.

Like many things worthwhile, changing your diet is never easy, but the effort will be worth it in the long run. Once you begin to see positive results in respect of your shrinking fibroids, it’s not so difficult to stick to the changes you have made.

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

    Sudden change in period, extremely painful and heavy. Fibroids? Endometriosis?
    My cycles since I can remember have always been six days long, the first 2 days very heavy bleeding, moderate bleeding the next two days and the last two days were very light. Even after having two children, my cycle has always returned to the same cycle within a couple of months following their birth.

    Last month, my period lasted 11 days, the first 5 being extremely heavy and finally tapering into a lighter flow the following 6 days. This month has resulted in the same start (day 4 of my cycle and all being very heavy.)

    For those of you who have experienced endometriosis and/or fibroids (history in my family of both), is this a warning sign I need to be aware of? My fiance and I would like to attempt to have one more child and through past encounters with birth control, they’ve taken me into deep depressions as a result of the hormones. I don’t want to put an end to my periods all together at this point, but am seriously weighing my options.

    Thank you in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Your guess about the causes is a good one. It could be either. If you are checked out and found NOT to have one of these, they should do a hormone panel to see if you have some abnormality, possibly even an ovarian tumor which affects your hormones.

      It COULD just be how your body works, unfortunately. Often, the endometrium (the tissue that bleeds), doesn’t exit the uterus fully, and continues to bleed. A D&C can bring relief, and even stop this altogether, or it may come back. The procedure is rather unpleasant, too. If the pill isn’t for you, there IS a drug that slows bleeding, usually used to stop hemorrhaging. Oxytocin is the one they usually give, I believe.

      For temporary relief of bleeding, try lying down for a day or two, with a cold pack on your abdomen. Leave it on for 20 mins., then remove. Put it back after skin warms up again. Do this for a few hours and it often provides relief. Also, avoid drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen, which cause more bleeding. Use Tylenol instead.

      See the link below for more explanations and treatment options.

      P.S. The site below also mentions the procedure mentioned above (endometrial ablation). However, it states that this is NOT for anyone wishing to maintain her fertility, as it “destroys the lining of the uterus”). Since you mentioned wanting to have another child, this wouldn’t be good for you.

      You might also want to reconsider having another child, as “loss of tonality” (or stretching) in the uterus, can cause excess blood loss, and even hemorrhage, esp. after childbirth. Sounds like you need a thorough gyn work-up! Good luck!

    Am I likely to have trouble conceiving with a tilted uterus and a family history of fibroids & endometriosis?
    I am 19 (almost 20) years old and engaged. I am still in school and do not want to try for a baby until I am done or in my last year of school (which could be anywhere from 3-5 years). I had very bad menstrual cramps from the age of 14 on and would routinely miss a day of school every time my period started. I now have a mirena and I don’t have to worry about that anymore because I don’t really get periods.

    BUT when my mirena was placed I was told that I had a tilted uterus. My mother says that she had a tilted uterus as well, and she had endometriosis and fibroids which led her to a hysterectomy at age 39. Both of her sisters, her mother, and her aunt have all suffered from either endometriosis, fibroids, or both. My mother and her sisters had no trouble at all while they were young (in fact the majority of their pregnancies were accidental!), but every woman in my family who has tried to conceive a child past her mid twenties has had a great deal of trouble (my aunt started trying for her 3rd child when she was 29 and didn’t get pregnant until she was 36). I am not sure at what age they developed endometriosis and if that was the cause of my mother’s tilted uterus or if it was tilted before her endometriosis developed. My nurse practitioner doesn’t seem to think I should worry about it. But with the combination of painful periods and a tilted uterus, should I be getting ‘tested’ for endometriosis? I’m worrying that it is possible that I am developing endometriosis faster than other women in my family have and that when I try for a baby around the age of 24 or 25 I will have a long road of trying ahead of me!

    Also, does anyone know how mirena might effect endometriosis, if at all?

    Any input or stories about dealing with tilted uterus/endometriosis/fibroids while trying to conceive would be appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I have a tilted uterus and have had painful and heavy periods since I was 12 (when I wasn’t on the pill), but they aren’t caused by fibroids or endometriosis. It’s just the way I am. There was a time when titled uteruses were believed to be linked to infertility, but that’s pretty well been rejected by the medical community.

      None of these conditions were particularly problematic for me. I quit the pill @ 25 and was pregnant 3 months later.

      Most of the time, the uterus will “un-tilt” itself early in the pregnancy. (Mine did). If it doesn’t, your doctor might manually manipulate it so that it will be in the correct position for delivery. That’s really the only complication.

    I have adenymosis or Fibroids and endometriosis and I’m confused.?
    I was diagnosis with the adenymyosis and Fibroids back in August and have endo on top of it. We are trying to have a baby, but no success except 3 angel babies. Anyone else have this issue and what worked for them. The doctor only gave me a couple more years before a hysterectomy is to happened.
    Thank you so much.

    • ANSWER:
      Did you miscarry in the first trimester? If so, I’d try supplementing with progesterone.

    Question about endometriosis and fibroids?
    When I was younger 13-16 I had the most painful period cramps. I actually would pass out from the pain. My mom took me to a doctor a couple of times and I don’t remember them running any tests on me or being worried. They thought I could be anemic, but found that I wasn’t.

    It’s not nearly as painful now, but lately I have been hearing about endometriosis and fibroids which can cause very painful period cramps. So my question is why did doctors not check me for these things?

    • ANSWER:
      Because endometriosis tends to be something that grows in your body during your child-bearing years. It’s a lot less common in teenage girls.

      However, I’ve had it my whole life (unfortunately). Sometimes you just need to keep going back and seeing doctor after doctor until you find one who will listen to you.

      Of course, if your period is less painful now than it used to be, then your chances of having endometriosis are very slim. It generally gets worse with age, not better.

    Has anyone used the drug Lupron to control pain for endometriosis or fibroids? What has been your experience?

    • ANSWER:
      I have not used Lupron itself but have used a drug similar to it called Zoladex for my endometriosis and had very good results with using it. I found that it was helpful to keeping my endometriosis pain under control.
