Hormonal Imbalance in Women and Fibroids

Hormonal Imbalance in Women and Fibroids

Posted | 0 comments

Is there something that will help shrink or get rid of fibroids?

Fibroids are non-cancerous tumours or growths of the uterus. They are very common – about half of women have fibroids, and in many cases they go undetected until they grow large enough that they cause symptoms such as urinary frequency, pelvic pain or heavy bleeding during menstruation. Fibroids usually grow slowly and in most cases treatment is not necessary. Fibroid growth is stimulated by estrogen, so they eventually shrink and go away when women go through menopause. If your fibroids are causing you discomfort there are a few things that you can try to shrink them:

Diet – eat more cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussel spouts. They contain compounds that help the liver detoxify estrogen. Choose organic foods to avoid pesticides ingestion (pesticides can act as endocrine disruptors and worsen estrogen dominance).

SupplementsHormone Balance by femMED helps to correct hormonal imbalance in women resulting in estrogen dominance. There is also a product called Breast Health that contains calcium D-glucarate and indole-3-carbinol and these ingredients assist in the detoxification and elimination of estrogen.

Acupuncture can help relieve pelvic pain and swelling and it also reduces stress (stress can be a contributing factor to hormonal changes that worsen fibroid symptoms).

Exercise regularly to reduce stress and maintain a healthy body weight. If you carry excess body fat, that can serve as a reservoir for estrogen.
