Dr Mohit Saraogi a leading IVF doctor in Mumbai, has successfully treated many patients with uterine fibroids by suggesting a suitable diet
Uterine fibroids are gynecological conditions which cause immense physical and emotional distress in women. They are also referred to as leiomyomas and are usually non-cancerous; they are made from connective tissue from the uterine wall and muscles. Women with uterine fibroids complain of severe abdominal pain and heavy menstrual bleeding but exhibit no symptoms or signs.
Dr Mohit Saraogi, a leading IVF doctor in Mumbai, has successfully treated many patients with uterine fibroids by suggesting a suitable diet. He states, ‘The diet focuses on reducing the production of oestrogen in the body, preventing new fibroids and reducing the extent of symptoms. I have full faith in this diet as it has wonderfully worked on my patients, and they feel greatly relieved.’
The uterine fibroid diet plan comprises broccoli, cabbage, kale, radish, watercress, etc., and other raw cruciferous vegetables that detoxify the liver. Also included are detoxifying vegetables such as carrots, beetroot, garlic, and carotenoid-rich food such as spinach, pumpkin, sweet potato, and apricots. In addition, the patient should consume water and green tea, a reliable antioxidant. In addition, the patient must consume food rich in Vitamin B -1,2,3,6,12 and Vitamin E, such as wheat germ, hazel nuts, cod liver oil, and almonds.
Gynecologists advise patients to avoid eating red meat, soya products, saturated fatty food, junk food, food containing artificial sweeteners, animal fats and even consumption of alcohol. Yet another important tip is to avoid eating foods packed in plastic containers.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are loaded with fibre and nutrients that help to fight inflammation and boost appetite while ensuring weight control. Beans and lentils provide plant-based protein and are ideal replacements for fatty meat, which cause inflammation in the body. They can regularly consume Indian dal, veggie burritos served with whole grain tortillas, and black beans. The patient can also include wild rice, brown rice, quinoa, and barley more often as they have a low glycemic index and power packed with fibre, proteins and antioxidants.
They can also consume low-fat dairy products such as yoghurt, cottage cheese, low-fat dairy milk, soy milk, almond milk, or other lactose-free milk if they suit the patient.
Dr Mohit Saraogi shares a patient story of a 49 YO patient suffering from uterine fibroids for the past couple of years. Upon examination, the patient had multiple fibroids and could require surgery for which she was not keen. So, I recommended a uterine fibroid diet, which she was eager to try. She visited me after six months, and upon checkup, the uterine fibroids had practically vanished, while few had become smaller. Hence, I recommended that she continue the same diet for a few months. Finally, after nearly three months, all her uterine fibroids had vanished, and she regained her health and felt more energetic than ever.
However, gynecologists recommend medicines and suitable surgical options such as myolysis, uterine artery embolization, endometrial ablation, hysterectomy, and myomectomy to resolve the issue upon the patient’s health and age apart from the condition of uterine fibroids.
Dr Mohit Saraogi emphasizes maintaining the acid-alkaline balance in the body, increasing consumption of raw foods, detoxifying the body regularly while exercising in moderation and living stress-free. It will be unrealistic to experience overnight changes in the patient, but in the long run, a uterine fibroid diet is likely to reduce the size of the fibroids and the extent of patient discomfort
