My fibroids were one of the first reasons (ulcers being the other) why I started to learn about wellness, which eventually lead to a career change and a live-long passion.
Fibroids are benign tumors that grown in or on your uterus and can cause heavy period, absence of period, pelvic pain, anemia, infertility and even depression.
There is some genetic predisposition to getting fibroids and age also has something to do with it (most women get theirs around the age of 30).
But for the most part, poor diet, exposure to excess estrogen in the food and environment, hormonal disruption and toxicity are known to be major factors affecting the development of fibroids in the body.
So those are the things I addressed when I was looking for natural alternatives to manage and shrink my fibroids naturally. Here are a few of the things that I worked on and that were effective for me!

Here are a few of the things that I worked on and that were effective for me:
My diet changed – this was non-negotiable. There is just so many nasty hormones, toxins and pollutants in meats, dairy, eggs, processed foods that can cause serious disruption in your body and when your body cannot handle the amount of these toxins it stores them, potentially creating tumors like fibroids. SO all that food had to do!
I detoxed – In addition to embracing a plant-based, clean diet, I started doing regular cleanses and detoxes to help my body get rid of toxicity that had probably been inside of me to years. My detoxes have evolved dramatically through the years but they almost always involve eating a very simple, almost entirely liquid diet, lots of sweating, enemas and colonics and some contemplative time.
Managing my emotions – I started practicing deep breathing techniques, meditation and yoga to manage stress and control hormones, and with it PMS and my cycle in general
I embraced women-friendly supplements – I experimented with dozens of dietary supplements but the ones that work for me included EFA (Essential Fatty Acid in liquid form), Vitex or Chasteberry, Dong Quai, DIM and progesterone cream. I still use those as part of my daily supplementation.
Listening to my heart – I had a few spiritual healers who had mentioned the connection between a weaker sacral chakra (the sex chakra, located near your sex organs) and the development of fibroids and other problems of the reproductive system. I listened without judging and opened an honest conversation with my body: Was a part of me unfulfilled creatively, did I need to “birth” something in my life, did I properly and safely explore my sexuality?
My fibroids are still there but they are significantly smaller, and more importantly, they are completely asymptomatic (causing no symptoms or troubles).
