Sugar and Fibroids
Here's an article linking white sugar/flour/high glycemic load and fibroids.
"Scientists are not sure why diet might affect the growth of fibroids. One possibility, however, is the effect of foods on blood sugar. Higher-carbohydrate diets can lead to higher insulin levels, which are in turn linked to levels of other hormones thought to encourage fibroid growth."
Why arent scientists sure about diet affecting fibroids. Diet effects EVERYTHING. But the mainstream may not want ppl to know that.
In any case, I wanted this article just to emphasize that white sugar/white flour plays a big role in fibroid growth.
And it's not only diet, but as Dr. Northrup points out in her book, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, fibroids may also be linked to emotional frustration in one's life.
To my absolute glee, this actually fits with the ideas in Chinese Medicine. Writes Beinfeld and Korngold that "when powerful emotions are squeezed down and held back, qi (a person's energy) becomes congested. When this occurs over a long period of time, blood begins to congeal forming lumps and masses."
more on this later....
