I would like to thank my family and friends for their support in my
journey to find alternative solutions to surgery for all women that suffer
from the debilitating effects of uterine fibroids.
© How To Get Rid Of Your Uterine Fibroids Without Surgery
This book came into being due to the lack of options that most women
are given for the treatment of their fibroids. Women need to be given
choices when it comes to their health.
This is important information that is not always readily available or
offered as an alternative to surgery. Women with fibroids need to be
given all of their options so that they can make an educated decision
about how they want to proceed with the removal of their uterine

Chapter 1: Introduction To Fibroids
If you have fibroids, then you know how extremely painful and
frustrating they can be. Not to mention that they can sometimes cause
If you are a woman between the ages of 18 and 50, you probably have
experienced fibroids at sometime in your life. If not, then you probably
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous (benign) tumors that develop in your
womb (uterus). Uterine fibroids are very common. Nearly every 1 in 5
women will have fibroids during their childbearing years. Which is the
time after you start menstruating for the first time and before you reach
menopause. Almost half of all women will have fibroids by the time
they turn 50.
Fibroids are very rare for women under the age of 20. And fibroids are
more common in African-Americans than Caucasians. Yet the cause is
still unknown.
Fibroid growth has been linked to the hormone estrogen. Therefore, as
long as you are menstruating, your fibroids will more than likely
continue growing.
The growth of a fibroid is usually a very slow
Sometimes they are so tiny that they can only be seen with a
microscope. However, then can grow to become very large in size and
can weigh several pounds. Women with very large fibroids can look as
if they are at various stages of pregnancy depending on how large their
fibroid(s) is and more often than not multiple fibroids varying in size are

Chapter 2: The Most Common Symptoms Of Fibroids
Fibroids are located in several areas of the uterus:
Myometrial - in the muscle wall of the uterus
Submucosal - just under the surface of the uterine lining
Subserosal - just under the outside covering of the uterus
Pendunculated - occurring on a long stalk on the outside of the
uterus or inside the cavity of the uterus
The most common symptoms of uterine fibroids are:
Bleeding between periods
Heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), sometimes with the
passage of blood clots
Menstrual periods that may last longer than normal
Need to urinate more often
Pelvic cramping or pain with periods
Sensation of fullness or pressure in lower abdomen
Pain during intercourse
In many cases uterine fibroids do not cause any symptoms at all and do
not require treatment. However, if they grow large enough, they can
cause pressure on your other organs, abnormal bleeding and infertility.
So in these cases surgery may be required.
I assume that since you are here seeking out information for relief from
your fibroids that you or someone you love has been diagnosed with
uterine fibroids. Am I right?

OK. The first thing to do is not to panic. As we discussed earlier,
uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that develop in your uterus.
And whether or not they are giving you problems, I am sure that you
want to get rid of them - pronto!
There are many things you can do to get rid of your fibroids. And that
can include anything from herbs to medications to surgery. But today
we are going to talk about food. Specifically what foods can help you
get rid of your fibroids and which foods you should avoid like the
People will talk to you about staying away from refined sugar, highly
processed foods, fried foods etc. That is all good advice but I thought
you would like a little more detail than that. So I have made a list of
foods that you should try to incorporate into your daily diet to help get
rid of your fibroids naturally.
Since estrogen stimulates fibroid growth, it makes sense to include
foods that reduce estrogen in your diet.
Here are some great food
choices that you can try before choosing conventional medication and /
or surgery.
BTW, I won't specifically address some of the potential pitfalls of
fibroids, but I highly recommend the Stop Fibroids System, which goes
into very specific details such as the top seven foods you must avoid,
herbs that will help shrink your fibroids naturally, the top mistakes that
women make that actually make their fibroids grow and so much more.
The book can be downloaded immediately and is not only easy to read
and understand, but it explains and solves many seen and unforeseen
issues that are affecting your fibroids and your quality of life. You can

Chapter 3: Foods That Will Shrink Your Fibroids
High Fiber Foods, Raw Fruits And Vegetables, Fish, Nuts And
Foods that contain a high fiber content can help reduce the size of your
fibroids and eliminate your symptoms. Fiber helps the liver process and
remove leftover estrogen from your body. According to Dr. Ronald
Hoffman of New York, a high fiber diet will decrease blood estrogen
levels. Fiber may bind to the hormone and draw it out of the body. You
should try to get at least seven servings of these per day.
Here are
some foods that help shrink fibroids:

Did You Know That . . .
Your cleaning products could be causing your fibroids to grow.
Anything that touches your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream
and can introduce toxins into your body.
You should switch to all
natural cleaning products to avoid exposing yourself to additional
toxins. If you do not want to switch your cleaning products to natural,
just be sure to wear rubber gloves whenever you are cleaning.
2. Your cosmetics could also be causing your fibroids to grow. The
same concept as above.
Anything that touches your skin gets
absorbed into your bloodstream introducing toxins into your body. So it
is very important that you switch to natural cosmetics. Think about all
of the toxins you have been putting into your body everyday by using
cosmetics made of manmade chemicals.
3. Ok, we will not beat this subject into the ground; however, you
should always think about toxins in anything you are doing such as
gardening etc. - always use gloves to keep those toxins out of your

Women who have had four to five children are at the lowest risk
of being diagnosed with fibroids. These women are 70 to 80 percent
less likely to develop fibroids than those who have no children
Obese and overweight women generally have more problems
with fibroids
Fibroids sometimes run in families. Some studies have shown
that women are twice as likely to develop fibroids if someone else in
their family has also gotten them
Women who have gone through menopause are less likely to be
diagnosed with fibroids

I was recently home visiting my parents and that’s the response I got from
my dad as he looked in disgust at the green mixture I was pouring from the
blender into a tall glass.
“That looks like swamp water!” He said.
It was hard to argue with him, as I shoved a straw into it. The site of a green
smoothie is usually what turns most people off; the people that say “I’d never
drink something like that!” The people that miss out on so many great foods
because they refuse to try something new in fear that they might not like it.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that green smoothies will never win any awards
for appearance. I don’t care how many beautifully taken rustic mason jar
photos you see on-line. I assume it goes back to our ancestors, where drinking
something green would probably mean a very certain death.
I shoved the glass in front of my’d think it was toxic waste the way
he edged back from the table.
“Just try it!” I said.
After a few minutes of intense stare down between my dad and the smoothie
and some last prayers…he took a sip.
...And then he took another sip.
“This is actually pretty good!” He said as a smile spread across his face.
I was all too used to this response from people that try a green smoothie for
the first time. The shock that something this healthy could taste GOOD!

“Aren’t they complicated to make though?” He asked. “I probably couldn’t make
them taste this good”.
I explained to him how easy they actually are to make and that’s one of the
main reasons why they’re so amazing.
What I realized is that if he just knew the basics, he could make these for
himself whenever he wanted.
So I set out to make some super simple tasty recipes to show him (or anyone
else) how easy it can be to boost your health by adding this simple green drink
to your daily routine.

with them or simply add them to your day as a healthy nutrient packed

The Power of Prep!
Good prep is the key to super simple smoothie making. Having all your
ingredients ready to throw in the blender makes this a breeze.
Wash, Cut, and Store Greens
You need two large zip lock bags with a paper-towel in each to absorb moisture.
Excess moisture is the #1 reason greens go bad fast. Remove the kale leaves from
the stems, chop, wash and spin dry in a salad spinner. Spinach usually comes
pre-washed in bags and doesn’t require any chopping. Remove the spinach from
the bag it came in and transfer it to the ziploc. Do the same with the kale into the
other bag. Store these in the fridge. When it comes time to make the smoothie
you will just grab a small handful from the bag which is about 1 cup.
Fresh Vs Frozen
Frozen fruit can actually be a better bargain than fresh depending on the time
of year. Also, if the fruit is flash frozen it may actually be fresher than the “fresh”
fruit. The general smoothie recipe rule I follow is fresh greens plus 1 fresh
fruit plus 1 frozen. If not using anything frozen I add a half cup of ice. I don’t
recommend freezing everything before, this will turn your smoothie to ice cream and
make it impossible to blend without adding more liquid which will water it down.
Chop And Portion Fruit If Needed
Most of these recipes use 1 fresh fruit and 1 frozen portion. If using fresh fruit
you can portion into small bags but honestly it’s not hard to peel a fresh banana.
Core an apple or pear the day you make the smoothie. If you buy a whole
pineapple though you may want to pre-cut it so you have it ready in the fridge.

Turmeric Health Secrets Exposed! PDF EBook Free Download
Turmeric Health Benefits
Turmeric is an ancient root used for its healing
properties for centuries. Turmeric comes from the
rhizome (rootstock) of the Curcuma longa plant. To
manufacture it, the roots of the plant are boiled, dried
and then ground into a powder. Traditionally used in
Chinese and Indian folk medicine, turmeric benefits
are amazing and able to treat a wide range of illnesses.
The powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities
of turmeric have made it a precious commodity for
Referred to as “Indian saffron” in medieval England,
turmeric wasn’t understood or valued for a long time.
People used it as natural food dye instead of as
the unbelievable healing agent it really is. The many
turmeric health benefits are truly incredible!
With a peppery, warm and bitter flavor, the mild
fragrance of turmeric resembles orange and ginger,
which makes it a national favorite in curry dishes dating
back centuries. Today, it’s widely used in yellow
mustard and as a natural health supplement.
Next to essential oils, few natural remedies have
reached mainstream use like turmeric has these past
few years. Interestingly enough, you’d expect that
Americans would catch on sooner, considering that
we’ve doused our Ball Park franks in yellow mustard
since 1904. That was the year R.T. French Co. first
started to use turmeric as a preservative and color
agent for “creamy salad mustard.”
The Key to Turmeric Health
The key to turmeric’s healing power is the chemical
compound curcumin. Nearly 7,000 peer-reviewed
scientific articles are published evaluating its
effectiveness, and although some side effects
are reported, the resounding feedback from the
research community is that turmeric and its primary
component, curcumin, hold some profound healing
benefits for the entire body. Take, for instance, just a
few of the most recent research studies published
within the past few months showing that curcumin can:
• Increase lifespan. (1)
• Protect the liver oxidative stress. (2)
• Kill fungus more effectively than ginger, clove
and oregano. (3)
• Induce tumor cell death in the deepest parts of
individual cells. (4)
• Kill bladder cancer cells. (5)
• Destroy lung cancer cells. (6)
• Lower blood cholesterol levels. (7)
• Protect against cognitive/memory defects from
heavy ion irradiation. (8)
Top 7 Proven Turmeric Health
The list of healing powers attributed to turmeric
curcumin seems to go on for days. Of the 7,000 studies
testing its effectiveness and safety, very few report any
side effects whatsoever. Although inherent dangers
exist for certain people, the vast majority of research
findings center on the turmeric health benefits and its
healing properties.
Some health conditions turmeric helps with are:
1. Chronic Inflammation and Pain
The journal Oncogene published the results of a study
that evaluated several anti-inflammatory
compounds. It found that aspirin (Bayer, etc.) and
ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) are least potent, while
curcumin is among the most potent anti-inflammatory
and anti-proliferative agents in the world. (9)
This means turmeric not only has great promise with
chronic pain, but since it has less side effects, it may
provide safe, lasting results!
2. Rheumatoid Arthritis
Due to its high anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is
highly effective at helping people manage rheumatoid
arthritis (RA). A recent study out of Japan evaluated its
relationship with interleukin (IL)-6, the inflammatory
cytokine known to be involved in the RA process, and
discovered that curcumin “significantly reduced” these
inflammatory markers. This suggests that regular
turmeric use could be a potent strategy to prevent the
onset of RA from developing to begin with! (10)
3. Depression
Researchers from the Government Medical College
(Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India) published the results of the
first study this past April to evaluate curcumin’s ability
to manage depression in a controlled setting. Taking 60
volunteers diagnosed with major depressive disorder
(MDD) and diving the group to determine how patients
treated by curcumin compared against fluoxetine
(Prozac) and a combination of the two, it discovered
that that the principal curcuminoid in turmeric is not
only as effective as Prozac in managing depression, it
doesn’t carry with it all the dangerous side effects as
anti-depressive drugs do. According to the paper, “This
study provides first clinical evidence that cur cumin may
be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment
in patients with MDD.” (11)
4. Diabetes
Turmeric is shown to lower blood glucose levels and
reverse insulin resistance. For instance, an article
published in Biochemistry and Biophysical Research
Communications shared a study out of Auburn
University that discovered curcumin suppresses
glucose production in the liver. Fascinatingly,
researchers proved that it’s actually 400 times more
potent than Metformin (a common diabetes drug) in
activating AMPK and its downstream target acetyl-CoA
carboxylase (ACC). Turmeric acted as an anti-diabetic
and antioxidant in diabetes, especially type 1 diabetes
(12), improved metabolic function and reduced the risk
of plaque buildup in the arteries of type 2 diabetes
patients (13).
5. Cancer
Recent studies show turmeric is a powerful adversary
to cancer. Curcumin shows a marked ability to inhibit
cancer cell growth, boost antioxidant levels and the
immune system, and kill cancer cells. It seems to work
on improving mitochondrial function at a cellular level,
and it improves metabolism. Even against drugresistant strains of leukemia, curcumin caused cell
death of cancer cells.
6. Skin and Aging
Turmeric has many healing properties for skin. It’s a
natural anti-inflammatory so it reduces redness or other
skin irritations. It’s antibacterial, so it’s great for
blemishes, acne and skin balance. Turmeric is
wonderful at improving the texture of the skin because
it is an exfoliant but also rich in antioxidants. It’s a
wonderful natural treatment inside and out!
7. Brain Health and Memory
It’s all in your head … literally. This vital organ is the
fundamental keeper of everything you’re able to think,
act or dream. By taking turmeric, you can improve the
oxygen intake of the brain, which helps in all of the
brain’s functions and processes. Turmeric is extremely
healing for the brain and for increasing memory
function. Not surprisingly, when your brain functions at
its best, then you increase the uptake of hormones,
such as seratonin and melatonin. So, by healing the
basic functioning of the brain, you can also heal other
mental illnesses.
Turmeric vs. Modern Medicine
Turmeric curcumin is so effective at managing these
health concerns that after examining the research, I
found that turmeric benefits go well beyond that
of these 10 drugs:
• Anti-inflammatories
• Anti-depressants (Prozac)
• Chemotherapy
• Anti-coagulants (aspirin)
• Pain killers
• Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
• Arthritis medications
• Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
• Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
• Steroids
Turmeric Dosage
Turmeric dosage mainly depends on age. For instance,
adults are generally recommended to follow these
guidelines: (14)
• Supplement: 450 milligrams of curcumin capsules
each day or up to 3 grams of turmeric root daily
(divided into several doses).
• Tea: 1 to 1.5 grams of dried root steeped in 5
ounces of water for 15 minutes twice daily.
• Oil: ½ tablespoon of turmeric oil three times daily.
For children, it’s reported that there is “no proven or
safe medicinal dose of turmeric in children.” (15) With
that said, I recommend “culinary doses” by regularly
including it into your natural health meal plan as you
would any other spice or herb. This way you can rest
assured that your kids get their fair share of turmeric
benefits every day. To give you a feel for the dosage
amount, it’s been reported that the, “Average dietary
intake of turmeric in the Indian population may range
between 2 to 2.5 grams, corresponding to 60 to 200
milligrams of curcumin daily. (16)
