Foods Which Promote Growth of Uterine Tumors
and Worsen Uterine Fibroid Symptoms
There are certain types of food that can actually promote
the growth of your uterine fibroid tumors. If you are
looking out for remedies to shrink fibroids naturally it is
necessary for you to avoid eating these items. Here I am
going to provide you detailed information on categories of
food that worsen fibroids.
Any uterine fibroid treatment method to be successful must
include dietary and lifestyle changes to ensure that your
fibroids do not recur. In particular exclude or stay away
from the following foods as far as possible:
Eating animals which are high in the food chain enhances
your exposure to xenoestrogens. Xenoestrogens accumulate
in fatty tissue of animals we eat. This means that each
animal in the food chain substantially increases its
xenoestrogen levels by eating smaller animals. As humans
since we happen to be at the top of the food chain, these are
likely to affect us the most.
Women who eat less animal products have lower chances
of suffering from fibroids. Even if they do have fibroids,
the uterine fibroid symptoms will be less severe in such
2.Red Meat and Daily products from non organic sources
Red meat and dairy products which come from non-organic
sources can really make fibroids grow and aggravate the
uterine fibroids symptoms. This is because commercial
farmers add synthetic hormones, antibiotics and drugs to
the feed given to livestock. This is done with the intention
to make them grow fast, gain weight and prepare them to
be sold for a high price.
The chemicals which are fed and injected into livestock, in
turn get transferred to humans when we consume the meat
or daily products that come from non-organic sources.
Many of these chemicals are xenoestrogens and others are
growth hormones. Have you ever taken a supplement
containing artificial estrogens and growth hormones? Most
probably not, but without realizing it you are in fact
consuming it indirectly when you eat commercial meat and
3.Non organic fruits and vegetables
Non-organic vegetables and fruits, especially those
imported from overseas are a common source
xenoestrogens. Several times during its life cycle
commercial produce is typically sprayed with chemical
herbicides and pesticides. This is done to protect the crop
from disease and being eaten away by insects. Whilst the
most dangerous chemicals are no longer used in the USA,
Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, they continue
to be used in other countries of the world. Many super
markets store such imported overseas produce which has
been sprayed with harmful chemicals. Many a times these
are used as ingredients in packaged foods too.
Packaged food, that are not organic are likely to contain
xenoestrogens, due to the food preservatives, artificial
coloring, flavorings and other additives put in the foods.
Plus they are usually stored for a long time in plastic
containers. Since a number of packaged foods have a high
fat content, you are likely to consume estrogenic chemicals
that have melted into the fats.
To shrink fibroids naturally it is necessary for you to make
a note of these types of foods. Healthy diet and lifestyle
will treat your uterine tumors and at the same time ensure
your good health and well being.
