Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that develop within the uterus. When a woman is diagnosed with fibroids it can vary from person to person. Sizes range from a pea to grapefruit and symptoms can range from minimal to extreme cramping and irregular menstrual cycles. Researchers and doctors still cannot give an exact reason why this happens, but lifestyle factors definitely have something to do with it. Treating fibroids can be difficult because they always have the possibility of growing back, even with surgery. There are many things we cannot control in this life, but we can adopt habits that will promote health and wellness. That is why the best way to address or prevent fibroids from developing is to transform your lifestyle and take steps towards balancing your hormones naturally. Here are my top tips for addressing fibroids in a more holistic way and preventing your condition from worsening.
1. Avoid These Foods!
Processed Meats. High fat, processed meats contain chemical additives that promote inflammation which could make your fibroid condition worse.
Dairy Products. Non-organic dairy products are full of hormones, chemicals, and steroids that encourage the growth and development of fibroids.
Refined Sugar. Countless studies show that a diet high in sugar can cause an array of concerns like inflammation, weight gain, and hormonal imbalances which all heighten your risk for fibroid growth.
2. Eat These Foods Instead!
Organic Foods. Choosing organic foods when grocery shopping can reduce your exposure to the chemicals and pesticides that non-organic foods carry. Doing so can ensure you are receiving all the nutrients from the foods you are eating to promote hormonal balance and wellness.
Leafy Greens. Kale, spinach, collard and mustard greens all contain anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce the risk of fibroids growing. Eating leafy greens can also help control fibroid symptoms like blood clotting and heavy menstrual cycles.
High-Iron Foods. Heavy menstrual bleeding can be a symptom of fibroids for some women, which can lead to anemia from blood loss. Increasing your iron intake with foods like grass-fed beef can help avoid this.
3. Drink More Herbal Teas. Herbal teas are great for overall health, but there are specific herbs that target inflammation and the rebalancing of hormones. Chasteberry, milk thistle, yellow dock, dandelion root, nettle, and red raspberry teas all support a healthy uterus and reproductive system.
4. Consistent Exercise Routine.
A regular exercise routine is great for preventing fibroids from developing altogether. The benefits of exercising regularly are undeniable and can address other health concerns you may be experiencing as well.
