If you’ve recently been diagnosed with uterine fibroids, I’m guessing that right now your doctor has you on the Pill. You’ve been told that this is the only option and just to sit tight, wait, and then, if and when you want to come off the Pill and maybe try for a baby, there was mention of plans for surgery. You feel better, so that all seems okay, right? It’s exactly what a conventional doctor would and should be telling you. The pain and bleeding is gone, so you’re “fixed,” at least for now…
From a functional nutrition standpoint though (that’s my area of expertise) that protocol doesn’t sound all that ideal. There’s a better way forward – no pain, but also no side effect laden pills or invasive surgeries. I know you want short term and long term good health at the same time – relief now and no fertility worries later. And you can have both, if you examine the root cause of your health issues.
You have it in your hands to control whether you develop more fibroids and whether the fibroids that you have become larger and more uncomfortable. Essentially you are able to make choices that will positively impact your current situation and your overall health. If you make changes to your diet and lifestyle you can avoid what’s to come. The work you would need to put in, starting today, to fix this problem is nothing when compared to dealing with the adverse effects of the Pill and invasive surgeries.
A new way to treat uterine fibroids
It seems harmless, I know – just take this Pill and everything will right itself. Unfortunately, the Pill does not stop the growth of fibroids altogether and it actually worsens the underlying hormonal issues that cause this problem. Eventually you’ll want to come off the Pill and the fibroids will grow back and will potentially be more difficult to deal with. The Pill depletes your hormones and nutrients, leaving you in poor health from low immunity to a hampered metabolism. Coming off, this can then create a situation in which a hysterectomy seems like the best choice. Hysterectomy increases cardiovascular risk, among a number of difficult consequences. So, I’m afraid it isn’t all that harmless, even if it does seem to make sense to you and your doctor right now to just stay on the Pill and sit tight.
Your internal ecosystem and genetic predisposition that is creating a fibroid condition will keep doing so until you fix that ecosystem. Just addressing the estrogen excess and dominance alone can help turn this ship around. Unaddressed however, you can’t get free of fibroids.
The good news? You can avoid all of this entirely. So, what do these necessary diet and lifestyle changes involve? Let me tell you. The nice thing is that it can all be accomplished in one elegant and simple solution.
There are 4 essential stages to treating fibroids naturally:
- Reduce your estrogen overload
- Improve your lymphatic drainage
- Reduce your gut inflammation
- Improve your liver function
Finding the heart to take action
You might not know this, but a diagnosis of uterine fibroids means that your daughter is more likely to also develop uterine fibroids once she hits puberty. Try thinking about it from this perspective – what would you do to prevent your child from going through the pain, the heavy bleeding, the backaches and the other ensuing health issues that you have gone through? I’d imagine you’d say – everything and anything possible. I know I would.
I truly believe that we need to treat ourselves like we would treat our own daughters – with the same love, compassion, and care. You in this very moment have the fierce heart of a mother to turn that love into powerful self-care for you!
I meet so many women who say, “If only I had known what was coming, I would have made different choices for myself far earlier in my life.” This is especially true for women who have suffered with fibroids. You can take your health into your own hands and make a difference.
To kickstart this process you need to try my 4 Day Hormone Detox Plan and then ease into the cycle syncing health-style of living in your Flo. Once you get started, it becomes second nature. I know you’d do it for your daughter, but I want you to do it for yourself.
Always remember, that once you have the right information about how your body really works, you can start making health choices that finally start to work for you! You can do this – the science of your body is on your side!
