Today I’m going to cover the best foods to help 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.
