As you probably already know, diet is crucial for healing fibroids naturally. Many whole fruits and vegetables promote overall health and wellness. However, there are also specific foods that have been shown to inhibit fibroid growth.
This isn’t some article on foods that shrink fibroids fast. Healing takes time and consistency.
These are a few foods that I try to consume often, some even on a daily basis.
These five foods have been studied and shown to reduce fibroid growth and minimize fibroid symptoms.
5 Foods that May Shrink Fibroids Naturally
Ginger – This root has been used for centuries to heal and treat many ailments. It can improve circulation and reduce inflammation in the body. Ginger is also known as a natural muscle relaxer, so menstruation is a perfect time to add it.
Turmeric – I often alternate between ginger and turmeric or drink them both together in a tea. Turmeric contains curcumin, a compound that inhibits fibroid growth and can shrink existing fibroids.
Wild Blueberries – These tiny berries contain an extremely high amount of antioxidants and help support liver function. Wild blueberries can be difficult to find, and I’ve yet to get my hands on any fresh ones. However, you can often find them in the frozen aisle. They make a great addition to smoothies.
Parsley- Now might be a great time to start that herb garden to get your daily dose of parsley. Just two tablespoons of parsley contain 154% of your RDI of Vitamin K. This nutrient is key in blood clotting and can help reduce heavy bleeding that can come along with with fibroids.
Wild Caught Salmon– Note that this is WILD salmon. Farm-raised salmon isn’t the best option because those fish usually consume a corn and wheat mixture. Also, companies use dye to enhance the color presentation of the fish in stores. Salmon often receives praise for its high amount of Omega 3 fatty acids; however, it doesn’t get nearly enough praise for its high amount of B vitamins and selenium.
