I was surprised that I had not previously written an article on this remedy, I was actually going to write an update, but I now realize I have to an article from scratch. A friend of mine developed Uterine Fibroids, something that is common and yet dreaded with women in America.
What are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Also called leiomyomas or myomas, and on very rare occasions can develop into cancer.
Fibroids range in size from seedlings, undetectable by the human eye, to bulky masses that can distort and enlarge the uterus. You can have a single fibroid or multiple ones. In extreme cases, multiple fibroids can expand the uterus so much that it reaches the rib cage and can add weight.
What causes Uterine Fibroids
Your diet is the main factor that causes fibroids, what you eat affects your Estrogen and progesterone which are the hormones produced by the ovaries. They cause the uterine lining to regenerate during each menstrual cycle and may stimulate the growth of fibroids.
High-Fat, Processed Meats are some of the worst food choices for women when it comes to fibroids. Foods high in unhealthy fats, like non-organic/processed meats or trans-fats (think hamburgers and processed breakfast sausages), can increase inflammation levels.
Non-organic dairy can be high in steroids, hormones, and other chemicals that may alter your hormones levels when eaten in high amounts, which encourages the development and growth of fibroids.
Consuming a lot of refined sugar can promote inflammation and lead to weight gain. It may also increase pain and reduce immune function. There’s an association between weight gain and hormonal imbalance, and these two factors can encourage the development of fibroids. Studies have even shown that a high dietary glycemic index is associated with a higher risk of uterine fibroids in some women.
Managing hormones not only involves the elimination of excess sugars from the diet but also refined carbohydrates. Refined carbs such as products made with white, bleached flour cause insulin levels to spike and hormones to become out of control.
Over-consuming alcohol can definitely contribute to increased inflammation throughout the body. It also reduces immune function, can promote weight gain, and encourages hormonal imbalances.
Too much caffeine is taxing on your body, especially your liver. When you give your liver more work to do than it can handle, it isn’t going to do as good of a job at keeping your hormones in balance.
Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids
Many women who have fibroids don’t have any symptoms. In those that do, symptoms can be influenced by the location, size, and the number of fibroids.
In women who have symptoms, the most common signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids include:
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Menstrual periods lasting more than a week
- Pelvic pressure or pain
- Frequent urination
- Difficulty emptying the bladder
- Backache or leg pains
How to Naturally Shrink Fibroids
Years ago a friend of mine had developed painful uterine fibroids, while she was at the specialist doctor he had mentioned that he needed to measure her cervix for surgery. She had no intention of having her cervix measured much less having a surgical procedure. She discovered from a local nutrition store a hard-to-find product called BreastGard by Solaray. This product not only allowed her to avert surgery, but it shrunk her uterine fibroids in a short amount of time.
So recently another friend of mine developed uterine fibroids and I recommended she buy BreastGard. But she told me she couldn’t find it anywhere. I attempted to locate the product and called a couple of nutrition stores but to no avail, even Amazon didn’t have it. So I had to find a reputable company that made a similar product with the same main ingredients.
The main ingredient in Breastgard is calcium d-glucarate, which is a powerful estrogen regulator, and vitamin D3. The other ingredient you need to add is dandelion root, which detoxifies the liver, as well as having the ability to maintain hormonal balance and reduce the estrogen level in blood circulation.
From what I’ve read and researched, it appears to be possible to shrink the fibroids with the Calcium d-Glucarate alone, but I don’t advise that especially being that vitamin D deficiency has a strong link to the production of Fibroids, especially within darker-skinned people, and having a toxic liver also has a direct link to fibroids as well as general health and well being.
A 2019 research study done in Iran by Hajhashemi et al. showed that Vitamin D supplementation decreased uterine fibroid size
. Sixty-nine vitamin D deficient participants with 1 to 2 uterine fibroids 2 to 8 cm in size completed the study. Participants were randomly assigned to receive 50,000 IUs of vitamin D every 2 weeks for 10 weeks (35 women) or a placebo tablet at the same frequency (34 women). Uterine fibroid size was measured in all women before the start of the study and again 6 months after. The results indicated that uterine fibroid size significantly decreased in the group that used vitamin D as compared to the placebo group .
Fibroid specialists have elucidated many researchers that have used vitamin D to shrink fibroids.
Personally, I take 30,000 IU’s of vitamin D a day. But to learn more about vitamin D and the correct dosage, which is incredibly much higher than the so-called RDI, I highly advise you to watch this video by Dr. Holick on Youtube, he is one of the foremost Vitamin D scholars in the world.
Ultimately, you have to change your diet, all of these hormones and steroids pumped into animals, harmful pesticides and herbicides, and GMOs are not only the genesis for fibroids but almost every other health impediment humanity is facing.
