Reducing The Size of Fibroids
Shrink Fibroids Reduce Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
A well functioning body is the most important thing that a human being can have to live a healthy and rewarding life. Sometimes people do not realize that the smallest things that they do could create problems physically. I had to learn that the difficult way. At 32 years of age I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. Although doctors told me it was hereditary, my father was not diagnosed with it until he was 65. I felt it was something I was doing wrong. large fibroids are caused by our unhealthy choices we make for our bodies. The problems that occur with fibroids and heavy menstrual bleeding can be reversed and different ways of doing this are presented in this article.
On top of having high blood pressure at 36 years-old I was diagnosed with large uterine fibroids and anemia. The doctors wanted to remove my uterus and they felt that all my problems would vanish once the uterus was eliminated. Being that I was only 36 years old I did not want to listen to what was being said, I wanted to find another way to heal myself and to reduce the size of the fibroids. I felt that I caused this problem and I had to fix it.
The final incident that stirred me into action was a diagnosis of hydronephrosis of the right kidney. This was an obstruction of the urinary tract, and this was happening because of the large fibroids resting on my urethras. Something had to be done and quickly.
While still seeing my personal physician and my gynecologist, I was able to reduce the size of my fibroids. Prior to changing my lifestyle to reduce my fibroids, my uterus measured 18cm x 12cm x 16cm. After changing things in my life my uterus measured 14.3 x 9.7 x 12.5 cm. Also, my hydronephrosis disappeared. The doctors and people that I know continually ask me how I did it and my answer is I changed a lot in my diet. It was difficult to do but I did it. My uterus is not at the proper size yet but my gynecologist is giving me a chance to continue what I am doing to see if it will get smaller. As of the date of this article I am going to call to see if I can be a candidate for Focused Ultrasound (FUS) treatment with ExAblate.

1. Dr. Akilah is a Doctor that I found online, this is her website. She had cancer and by changing her diet she went into remission. A lot of my diet changes were taken from her, especially the apple cider vinegar.
2. Many of the websites speak about estrogens and how it is one of the main reasons why fibroids grow. This website gives different foods that should not be eaten to lower estrogen, and also it focuses on chemicals such xenoestrogen and its harmful effects. A lot of the foods listed as foods with estrogen in this website I totally stop eating, especially foods with wheat. Now I eat gluten free/wheat free foods. I do not eat any products with milk as an ingredient because of chemical hormones; instead I drink almond milk, coconut milk or rice milk.
3. The most important thing I did was remove xenoestrogens from my food and skin products. For many women any product that has a chemical that ends in paraben (methylparaben, propylparaben, etc.) is no good. These elements are mostly found in hair products.
4. The idea is to increase the intake of Estrogen Inhibiting Foods to reduce fibroid size. These types of foods are listed here:
5. The last thing that I did to decrease my fibroids is the castor oil packs. Using heat and castor oil can significantly reduce the size of the fibroids. Do this every day and a difference will be seen.
6. Chlorophyll is important too. Read my article on the benefits of chlorophyll. The nutrition in chlorophyll can also be obtained in green leafy vegetables.
7. Olive oil helps in blocking estrogen. Take a tablespoon of it every day. Kelp is also good in reducing fibroids. Take 1 tablet once a week.
8. Finally, vitamins are important. It is important to take a multivitamin and a liquid calcium pill. It is also beneficial to take a B vitamin pill. Speak with your physician on what is the proper way to take these.
