Fibroids are growths that affect the breasts or uterus in women between the ages of 35 and 49. Excessive estrogen or an under active thyroid are the main causes of fibroids in women. Rather than resorting to surgery to reverse this condition, Dr. Linda Rector Page, who works in the field of nutrition and herbal medicine, recommends natural therapy. Symptoms of fibroids include painful and swollen breasts or excessive bleeding from the uterus. Consuming too much fat, caffeine, chocolate, sodas, sugar, improper diet, stress, obesity and birth control pills have been linked with fibroids.
Things You'll Need
- High-power juicer
Alternate using different fruits and vegetables to obtain the maximum benefits of juicing. The goal of juicing is to both detoxify and cleanse the system while boosting the immune system, and regenerating the organs.
Blend a pinch of Cayenne pepper, ginger, garlic, apple cider vinegar, and grapefruit juice mixed with honey or maple syrup. This combination detoxifies, improves the circulation and strengthens the immune system.
Combine the following green vegetables, which can be blended in single or combination form to cleanse the blood stream, tone the organs and stimulate the body’s cell growth. Watercress, spinach, dandelion, Parsley, Alfalfa Sprouts, green pepper. Add Wheat grass, spirullina, chlorella, celery, lemon and lime to green drink combination.
Add broccoli, carrots, and cabbage to green drinks as they are rich in flavonoids which are known to reduce the risk of fibroids. Blend Aloe Vera and wheat grass juice for detoxification
Include berries like acai, pomegranate, blueberries and strawberries, in your regimen as they contain antioxidants, which enhance the immune system and are also very rich in vitamin C.
Blend watermelon juice to reduce water retention and swelling. Also include other melons like honeydew and cantaloupe. Take on an empty stomach mornings are best.
