Food Recommendations for Women with Fibroids

A diet high in fiber and potassium can help slow the growth of fibroids and potentially shrink them. Foods that are rich in fiber include fruits and vegetables. Foods that are high in potassium include bananas and avocados. Foods to avoid include red meats and pork as they tend to release estrogen which helps fibroids grow. By avoiding red meat and pork you can decrease estrogen release and help slow down the growth of the fibroids.
