What foods could help shrink fibroid tumors?

Updated April 17, 2017

Uterine fibroid tumours are related to consumption of fatty foods, stress, smoking, caffeine and alcohol. Changing your diet to include nuts and cold-pressed almond oil will change your body chemistry to a more alkaline environment that will inhibit the growth of tumours.

Detoxifying Foods

Fibroid tumours are reduced by dietary changes that allow toxin and waste elimination. Super foods like blue-green algae, spirulina, chlorella and wheat grass contain nutrient-rich minerals that are more easily absorbed, and create effective toxin elimination.

Beets and Beet Greens

Most fibroid tumours act as receptacles for toxins. Beets and their greens regulate blood sugar, cleanse the liver, as well as eliminate toxins. Plant-based diets create a more alkaline body.


Pears are essential to women's health. They contain phytonutrient ellagic acid, boron and lignin which work together to fight tumour growth.


Eliminating dairy from your diet can help to shrink existing tumours and prevent new growths. Using soy to replace dairy in your coffee, tea or desserts will make it palatable.

White Turnip

Fasting can support the detoxification process and reduce fibroid tumours. Steaming white turnip with its greens and mashing it with turmeric, black pepper and raw almond oil is one recipe to use for a woman's fast. Consult your nutritionist before beginning any fast.
