Fibroids & Foods to Avoid

If you are suffering from fibroids, the level of estrogen and progesterone in your body is out of balance. The elevated level of estrogen in your body is contributing to the development of fibroid tumors as well as a worsening of your condition. Many people consume foods that are estrogenic, which means that they increase the estrogen load in the body when consumed. Moreover, environmental sources of estrogen (called “xeno-estrogens”) further increase the estrogen load in the body upon exposure to these sources (one of the most common sources being BPA).

Both dietary and environmental sources of estrogen contribute to a worsening of the hormonal imbalance within the body, which causes growth of fibroid tumors. The following video explains in detail what estrogenic foods and sources to avoid in order to prevent worsening of fibroids.
