Affect of Diet on Fibroid Development

Find out what role your diet plays in fibroid growth. Eating healthy may pay off in more ways than one!

Can diet help shrink fibroids or keep them from forming or growing larger?

As a part of any good health regimen, a healthy diet combined with moderate exercise may decrease the risk of fibroid development.  Research has yet to determine the exact impact that diet has on fibroid development; however, consuming foods that have added levels of hormone may increase the size of fibroids.  In specific, the hormones estrogen and progesterone are believed to foster fibroid growth; therefore, taking in increased levels of these hormones may lead to a fibroid size increase.   At any rate, although diet regulation may contribute to fibroid size management, other measures are often necessary to eliminate symptoms and issues related to fibroid growth.
