A uterine leiomyoma (also called a uterine fibroid or fibromyoma) is an estrogen-dependant myoma (a benign tumour from muscle tissue) affecting the uterus.
It is a benign disorder characterized by the appearance of non-cancerous, mesenchymatous, hormone-sensitive tumours in the smooth muscle tissue of the uterus.
From a naturopathic perspective, fibroids, like endometriosis, stems from poor estrogen metabolism. The nutritional approaches for these disorders are practically identical.
Avoid soy and soy by-products. Eliminate simple sugars and processed foods. Avoid too many stimulants, such as caffeine. Do not drink more than 200 ml of coffee per day. Be sure to eat protein at every meal. Make sure your lunch and dinner consist of 50% to 60% vegetables. Opt for vegetables from the cabbage family (e.g. cauliflower, Chinese cabbage and Brussels sprouts) and their by-products, such as sauerkraut.
