You are often suffering from intense bleeding and stabbing pain…
You go to the doctor and you are diagnosed with uterine fibroids…
You ask the doctor “Why the fibroids affected me?” “What causes fibroids?” (Check 6 reasons)
Your doctor says “the cause of fibroids is not known…. It can only be managed…. It can’t be cured…”
So many women start believing these opinions…
They start using medicine to manage the symptoms….
Yes, it is true!
You can manage the pain and over bleeding by using conventional treatments…
But did you know?
The price you pay for neglecting the root cause and treating only the symptoms….
Have a glance of terrifying statistics:
- Uterine fibroids occur in 20-40% of all women during reproductive years.
- By age 50, 70% of whites and 80% of African Americans had fibroids.
- Fibroids are the number 1 reason for hysterectomy in the US.
- Fibroids result in 200,000 hysterectomies in the US.
- Annual direct health care costs for uterine fibroids exceed $2.1 billion.
What causes uterine fibroids?
.Before you know what really causes fibroids, see the following facts:
- Fibroids are rare before puberty, enlarge during pregnancy and stop growing at menopause…
- Fibroids shrink with the use of medications that decrease estrogen levels.
- (you can go Natural way)
If you carefully see the above facts, you can realize that there is a direct link between uterine fibroids and estrogen…
Once you acknowledge the link between fibroids and estrogen it becomes easy for you what is causing your fibroids…
Let me give some proof and evidence so that you stop believing that there is no cure for fibroids….
What Causes Fibroids: Proof & Evidence
Estrogens promote fibroids growth:
.“Estrogens, especially estradiol, promote their growth. After menopause fibroids disappear. But because estrogen levels can rise during the early menopausal years, previously asymptomatic fibroids may grow in the years just before the cessation of menses, resulting in symptoms such as feeling of heaviness in the belly, low back pain, pain with vaginal penetration, urinary frequency or incontinence, bowel difficulties, or severe menstrual pain and flooding.” womenlivingnaturally.com
Fibroids are estrogen dependent tumours:
.“It is clear that fibroids are linked to female sex hormones, the estrogens and gestagens, as these hormones are not active in childhood. During the menopause hormone production is reduced, fibroids present stop growing and new fibroids do not appear. Therefore, fibroids are hormone dependent tumours.” www.uterus-myomatosus.net
Fibroids grow due to estrogen:
.“Fibroids have been shown to contain more receptors for estrogen and progesterone (the hormones involved in preparing the uterine lining for pregnancy at each menstrual cycle) than normal uterine muscle cells, making them more likely to grow.” www.todaysdietitian.com
Estrogen- like hormones increase the fibroid’s size:
.“Man-made chemicals can introduce estrogen-like hormones into the body thereby increasing the fibroid’s size.”
“The chemical industry must also take credit for upsetting the delicate balance of female hormones as pesticides and other poisons that enter the food chain or are otherwise ingested, lodge, particularly in fatty tissues, where they mimic estrogen.” www.sheilashea.com
Fibroids flourish with estrogen:
.“Estrogen, a steroid hormone produced by the ovaries, causes uterine fibroids to flourish in the body.” pubs.acs.org
Estrogen promoting the growth of fibroids:
.“Estrogen and progesterone, two hormones that stimulate development of the uterine lining during each menstrual cycle in preparation for pregnancy, appear to promote the growth of fibroids. Fibroids contain more estrogen and progesterone receptors than normal uterine muscle cells do. Fibroids tend to shrink after menopause due to a decrease in hormone production.” www.mayoclinic.org
Xenoestrogens compound fibroids growth:
.“In addition to an excess of estrogen production within the body, a strong case can be made that the role of the most significant environmental factor assaulting female hormonal health – compounds known as xenoestrogens.” doctormurray.com
Stress is responsible for fibroids:.
“My personal impression as a physician who has worked with women patients for close to 20 years is that stress is a significant component of many recurrent and chronic health problems, including fibroids and endometriosis”.
Dr. Susan M. Lark is one of the foremost authorities on women’s health issues and is the author of nine books. She has served on the faculty of Stanford University Medical School.. www.healthy.net
There is a connection between chronic stress and uterine fibroids:
.“This is the second prospective study to show an association between childhood abuse and uterine fibroids diagnosed during adulthood,” www.huffingtonpost.com
Association between uterine fibroids and stress:
.“In summary, vegetable and fruit intakes and occupational intensity had positive effects on uterine fibroids, and a high BMI increased the risk of fibroids in premenopausal women.” Case Study
The bottom line is!
.Going by the above facts and evidence, you can draw the following conclusion;
Estrogen dominance in your body coupled with stressful lifestyle causing your fibroids….
You can cure uterine fibroids by reducing estrogen dominance and managing your stressful lifestyle…
How to reduce estrogen dominance?
.First identify the foods that contain or promote excess estrogen…
Stop these Foods:
In general, all non-organic processed foods, dairy products, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, sugar and coffee directly or indirectly causing your estrogen levels to increase…
Therefore, you stop the above foods and replace with organic and hormone free food.
Stop these Products:
Also, it was found that your personal care products, cosmetics, plastics and all forms of pesticides contain environmental estrogens…
So, whenever possible try to use organic and chemical free products…
How to reduce stress?
I’m sure you personally know the impact of stress on your health…
Whenever we are under stress we feel muscle tension, back and shoulder pain, pain in the neck area…
Also, we experience increasing blood pressure and fatigue…
All these are common experiences and for which no proof is required…
It is a fact that women are under severe stress due to the factors like relationship issues, finances and career problems…
You can manage your stress with simple meditative techniques…
Here is one such technique I practice personally to keep my stress under control…
