Ask The Nutritionist: Fibroids

Dear Angie, Thank you so much for your Q and A. I learn so much from you! You have inspired me to write a question about my health. I have 3 uterine fibroids. The only symptom I seem to get is spot bleeding in between periods. What advice could you give me please regarding fibroids?

 

A: Fibroids are benign tumours of muscle and connective tissue that grow inside or around the wall of a woman's uterus. You can get fibroids due to oestrogen dominance. Oestrogen dominance can cause a woman's uterus lining to over thicken, this can result in localised growths in the muscle and connective tissue that line the uterus. These growths are uterine fibroids.

Fibroids can be related to: 

  • An overworked liver.
  • The contraceptive pill
  • High levels of oestrogen's.nToxicitynHigh levels of saturated fats and meats.
  • Lack of essential fatty acids
  • Fibroids can run in the family and can be related to stress.
  • High levels of oestrogens.
  • ToxicitynHigh levels of saturated fats and meats.nLack of essential fatty acids
