Fertilaid for Women Increase my Uterine Fibroids
Can Fertilaid for women increase the size of my uterine fibroids?
Fibroid growth is related to increase estrogen levels in the body, especially bad estrogen caused by xenoestrogens present in water, food, cosmetics and plastic products.
FertilAid does contain herbal remedies like Vitex agnus castus who have been known to decrease high levels of estrogen in the body by increasing progesterone production. Vitex helps the body counter-act the negative effects of estrogen dominance.
Having said this, FertiAid also contains RedClover which has been used traditionally to help balance estrogen, but it has weak estrogenic properties and some women who are already experiencing estrogen dominance condition may be sensitive to phytoestrogens in Red clover.
Phytoestrogens are mild plant-based forms of estrogen are are present in food like soy, flax, cereals, etc.
This type of estrogens is not like chemical estrogens present in the environment called xenoestrogens or hormonal disruptors. When these chemicals enter your body, they need to be removed through a detox and avoided by eating foods that are pesticide, hormone and antibiotic free. Avoid red meat and dairy unless organically grown. Also check your cosmetics and avoid parabens at all costs.
Plant estrogens like red clover isoflavones are much milder than chemicals xenostrogens and considered safe and useful to maintain female reproductive health. For women with normal estrogen levels, red
clover isoflavones may displace natural estrogens, preventing estrogen-related symptoms, such as breast pain, that are associated with PMS.
Red clover also supports uterine health by bringing blood flow to this are supporting healthy implantation.
Studies on red clover have shown that it may interfere with an enzyme known to promote the progression of endometrial cancer. Other studies by The National Cancer Institute have reported Red clover to have anti-tumor properties. It is also a well-known blood cleansing herb because it helps the liver to detoxify excess estrogen, the main cause of fibroids. Red clover is also as antispamodic and prevents uterine spasms.
There is a lot of contradiction on the effects of Red clover and fibroids as red clover is used in many traditional herbal formulas to treat fibroids, but modern scientists do not recommend red clover in women who are sensitive to bad estrogen.
There is really no way to know for sure if Red clover is safe for women with fibroids as every woman is different. In fact, most women do have positive effects from plant-based phytoestrogens, but react badly from man-made estrogens. If you have fibroids and are thinking to take FertiAid consult with a doctor first.
