Fibroid Diet: What to Eat in a Week?

Based on different studies, as much as 50 to 70% of all women in the world develop fibroids during their lifetime. Therefore, uterine fibroids are considered the most common non-cancerous tumors in a woman’s body. Women with fibroids do not necessarily suffer from them. The location, size, and quantity of tumors define whether a female is symptomatic or not.

However, if you are symptomatic, can diet help mitigate your symptoms? Although the causes of fibroids are not clear, we know that they are estrogen‐dependent. Therefore, understanding estrogen management is important for a woman suffering from uterine fibroids.

The nutrition strategy described in this e-guide is based on a practical, yet science-based approach aimed to limit the consumption of foods that are either high in estrogen or provoke its development in the body. To make it easier, we designed a weekly fibroid diet plan example that can fit into a busy routine. Explore, try it out, share, and comment!
