Estrogen Balance with DIM
What Foods Can Help to Shrink Fibroids?
A fibroid is a tumor that’s growing on the inside of the uterus or different parts of the uterus. It could be between the size of a pea and the size of a basketball.
A person with a fibroid may want to avoid foods that cause growth and anything that increases estrogen, such as cheese, soy, and flax. Insulin is also a powerful growth hormone, so it’s important to go on a low-carb, low-sugar diet.
However, there are foods that have various phytonutrients and may actually help decrease inflammation, fibrosis, and angiogenesis (the formation of new blood supply to a fibroid).
The best foods for fibroids:
1. Berries (ellagic acid)
2. Garlic (allicin)
3. Cauliflower (indole-3-carbinol)
4. Tomato (lycopene)
5. Onion (quercetin)
6. Broccoli sprouts (sulforaphane)
7. Peppermint (ursolic acid)
8. Shallots (isoliquiritigenin)
9. Peanuts (resveratrol)
Intermittent fasting and periodic prolonged fasting may also be a few of the most important things you can do to potentially shrink fibroids. Overall, combining intermittent fasting, prolonged fasting, healthy keto, and some of the foods above may be a great plan.
