Uterine Fibroids: Preventing, Shrinking & Avoiding Surgery

Most women with fibroids suffer severe discomfort, distended bellies, pain, and excessive bleeding. And the proposal of surgery by most of their doctors is all too common.  But some people have figured out a way to shrink fibroids and avoid surgery all together… It’s something many women can not conceive. They say to themselves, “It’s genetic. My mother, aunts, and sister have them, so I was bound to develop them also…”. Please know that we are not doo med to suffer the same ailments,
conditions and diseases our family suffers or suffered. If the body is fed what it needs, it knows how to heal itself. I’ve updated this article with the following recent statistics: Fibroids are the
number 1 reason for hysterectomy in the US (The National Women’s
Health Information Center, CDC) Fibroids result in
150,000-175,000 hysterectomies in the US (The National Women’s
Health Information Center, CDC) Prevalance of Uterine
fibroids: 10-20% women (NWHIC) Prevalance Rate: approx 1 in 20 or
5.00% or 13.6 million people in USA In a recent US study by BioMed Central Women’s
Health, with randomly selected women between 35 to 49
years, who were screened by self-report, medical record and
sonography, the incidence of uterine fibroids
by age 35 was 60% among
African-American women, increasing to greater than 80% by age
50, whereas Caucasian women showed an incidence of
40% by age 35, and almost 70% by age 50. When it comes to
fibroids, they
can be prevented. And there
are ways to shrink them naturally and
avoid surgery. But how can we do any of this if most times women
don’t know they are ‘feeding‘ their fibroids?
 If you have fibroids and drink
BEEF/CHICKEN/TURKEY, then you may be ‘feeding’ your
fibroids. Instead of helping your body shrink them,
they may grow larger. In my practice these are the first foods I
recommend be eliminated from the diet.
Estrogen dominance and an overloaded
liver are some causes for uterine fibroid risk, and the
above list of foods cause more hormonal imbalance. Even organic
versions or decaffeinated versions of the above foods. What we eat
determines whether we put ourselves at risk for fibroids. Period.
It’s so true to the point that an Italian scientist in studies
showed women who eat plenty of vegetables cut their
fibroid risk in half, while women who eat red meat
double their risk!  And there is a controversy regarding
soy.  The following is very
important to understand: Soybeans
contain the compounds genistein and
daidzein, which are estrogenic and reduce the
risk of breast cancer as well as reduce hot
flashes and other types of menopausal
discomfort.  If they reduce the risk of cancer, then the
thought of them causing fibroids is not true. The type of estrogens
that are harmful to a woman’s health are
This type of
xenohormone imitates
estrogen.  These estrogens are
foreign to the human body and the bad news is that
xenoestrogens are not only in plastics and styrofoam, but its in
the hormones the stockmen and farmers use to fatten up their
animals for market – beef,
chicken, turkey, pork.  These xenoestrogens
put you at risk of estrogen dominance, and in turn make a woman
more prone to developing abnormal cell growth, or ‘feeding’
abnormal cells. With that said, studies also show uterine
fibroids to be more common than blue
eyes. They are painful and cause excessive menstrual
bleeding. In my years of experience I also tell clients and
patients, “Do not wear tampons”.
Your body does NOT
eliminate monthly menstrual waste
properly if something is obstructing the vaginal tract.  And
Ladies, a tampon can never absorb a menstrual blood clot.
Wear organic maxi-pads.  It is necessary
to avoid the chlorine and other chemicals in
traditional pads so as not to suffer heavy menstrual bleeding,
itching, odor, and vaginal discomfort in the form of discharge all
due to the interaction of these chemicals with your body chemistry.
Use the following combination of supplements for minimum 6-8
weeks (depending on the severity and size of fibroids) to help the
body shrink fibroids, promote hormonal balance, reduce heavy
uterine bleeding, decrease inflammation and pain, and stabilize

LBSII (capsules)
Ladies, studies show
2/3 of hysterectomies
are unnecessary.  Also, according
to The Lancet, a
myomectomy carries a
high risk of adhesion formation
(up to 60%) and uterine rupture, especially after laparascopic
resection.  And, according to Obstetrics and Gynecology
International, Uterine Artery Embolisation
(UAE), one of the newest methods used to remove
fibroids, is now showing superior risk
compared to hysterectomy. Prevent surgery as so many others have.
