Managing fibroids can be more manageable if you know the guidelines to follow. Below are foods to avoid with fibroids:
For best results in managing your fibroids, try restricting the following food and drinks from your diet:
- High-fat, processed meats – Red processed meat is known to be high in added hormones, particularly estrogen
- High-fat dairy products – Conventional dairy can contain high levels of steroids, hormones, and other chemicals that promote inflation
- Foods high in salt – Highly salted foods are hard on your liver, which is the organ that is most responsible for removing toxins and balancing hormones
- Refined carbohydrates – White foods such as pasta, white bread, white rice, cakes, and cookies have been known to alter estrogen levels, causing fibroids to increase in size.
