How to Cure Fibroids Naturally; the benefits of Ginger Root

Fibroids are benign tumours containing fibrous tissue and especially located in the uterus of the woman. They are therefore non-cancerous growths or tumours that sometimes also form outside the uterus, and usually during menstruation. They can be painful at times and causing heavy bleeding during menstruation but not usually life threatening.
Many at times women with fibroids who want to get rid of the problem resort to surgery, but scientific research has shown over time that invariably after spending so much money and going through the painful experience fibroids usually grow back with time. But modern research has also brought some bit of good news to this category of women in that nutrition and overall lifestyle changes have proven to be the best and even more lasting option.

Wait for it
Firstly, experts advise that if you can – just wait for the fibroids to live out their time especially if they do not give you much discomfort because they are bound to disappear after some time of living with it. This happens especially as you near menopause after which they no longer have menstruation to feed on, and so they shrink away naturally. Otherwise, lifestyle change and dietary discipline is what you must switch to. But whatever be the case with your fibroids, always ensure your doctor keeps a close tab and continues to monitor you on it.

Keep off (red) meat
Meat, especially red meat, is something you must be prepared to eliminate from your diet. Meats have a way of encouraging the growth of fibroids and so remain unhealthy for your condition. Rather, consume fish and plenty of fish rich in Omega3 fatty acids such as tuna, herring, sardines, mackerel which we commonly call ‘Titus’, etc. These work against irritations, and are anti-inflammatory food items you should enjoy more.

Fruits and Vegetables
You should cultivate the habit of consuming lots of fruits and vegetables if you are not already doing so. Especially if your fruits and vegetables are eaten raw, they are fully equipped to act on your system in the elimination of fibrin. This they do due to the large presence of natural food fibres and digestive enzymes which they posses.

Stay off Junk food
Processed food which is the hallmark of junk food or ‘fast food’ is a danger to your health. These foods are lacking in vital food nutrients and natural fibres, and so just like processed wheat products like white rice, white bread, biscuits, noodles, white sugars and soft drinks; caffeinated drinks such as coffee, as well as alcohol go to encourage the growth of tumours including fibroids. You must stay away from them. In addition experts say you must avoid foods that contain saturated fats like meats and ‘whole milk’. Stay away from tobacco also, while endeavouring to take enough of foods rich in iron and potassium. Relish more of plant based foods especially whole grains, soya beans, legumes, fruits, etc, which help to reduce levels of oestrogen.

Experts say regular moderate exercise on a daily basis especially if you suffer from painful fibroids will be very beneficial. This will help to keep you healthy and fit and pep up your mood as well as deal with hormone (oestrogen) production by reducing it thereby leading to the shrinking of the fibroids. Exercise will equally keep you in shape so you are not overweight as heaviness raises the oestrogen levels and subsequently encouraging instead a rapid growth of fibroids.

Fibre rich foods - good for you

Use Ginger root
On a last note, having taken the above steps, do not forget to combine with the use of this tumour fighting food condiment that is widely eaten all over the world. Ginger is a natural herb that is scientifically proven to fight all forms of tumour including cancer! In a research conducted by a team of scientists based out of Georgia State University, USA, whole ginger extract was shown to shrink (prostate) tumour size by as much as 56% in mice! For your home remedy therefore, in using ginger roots you could simply carry out this simple preparation and use:
Ginger root

Smash up a good quantity of ginger root and boil in water. Then soak a towel in the hot liquid and place the hot compress on your belly at least two times a day to help to shrink uterine fibroids. It will also help you to deal with your pain. You can get even more of the health benefits of this herb by drinking ginger root tea a few times per day. In the report of the scientists working with ginger titled, ‘Benefits of whole ginger extract in (prostate) cancer’, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, and the US National Library of Medicine, the researchers stated that “Ginger has been known to display anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiproliferative activities, indicating its promising role as a chemopreventive agent…”
