Eating Your Way to a Healthier Uterus: Fibroids and Food

Hey Jubies, 

Introduction:

We are here again to discuss fibroids, but we are discussing how your diet can impact fibroids. While the exact cause of fibroids is still unknown, research has shown that hormones, particularly estrogen, play a role in their development. And what we eat can have a significant impact on our hormone levels. So we will explore the link between fibroids and food and how to eat your way to a healthier uterus.

Foods to Include in Your Diet:

  1. Vegetables: Leafy greens, such as kale, lettuce and spinach, are high in antioxidants and phytoestrogens, which can help to regulate estrogen levels which are essential in lowering your fibroid symptoms. Cruciferous vegetables like cabbage and broccoli are also your best friends. They are beneficial as they contain indole-3-carbinol, which can help to metabolize estrogen.
  2. Fruits: Berries are not only fun to eat and versatile for your meal plan, but they are high in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. Strawberries and blueberries should be your go-to. Other fruits, such as citrus and melons, are also beneficial as they contain vitamin C, which can help to strengthen the immune system.
  3. Whole Grains: Whole grains, like quinoa, are high in fiber. High-fiber foods help to regulate your insulin and blood sugar levels. High levels of insulin can stimulate the growth of fibroids.

Foods to Avoid:

  1. Red Meat: Red meat and high saturated fat go hand in hand. However, this leaves you prone to inflammation in the body. It can also contain hormones and other chemicals that can disrupt hormone levels.
  2. Dairy Products: Ladies, we love our chocolates but dairy products, mainly those high in fat, can increase estrogen levels. Substitute for low-fat dairy products or non-dairy alternatives and add a few berries. Make it fun!
  3. Processed Foods: Processed foods are a no-no. Those high in sugar and refined carbohydrates can increase insulin levels and promote inflammation. So, avoid processed snacks and meals and opt for whole, fresh foods instead. 

FAQs:

Q: Is it okay to eat red meat occasionally? 

A: While limiting your intake of red meat is best, it is okay to enjoy it in moderation as part of a balanced diet. Opt for lean cuts and choose grass-fed or organic meat when possible.

Q: Can dietary changes alone cure fibroids? 

A: While dietary changes can positively impact fibroid growth and development, they are unlikely to cure fibroids independently. Other treatments, such as surgery, may be necessary depending on the size.
