Fibroids (or Fibroid Tumors) are tumors made of smooth muscle & fibrous connective tissue. They may be associated with the tissues of the breasts or uterus (sometimes called leimyomas or myomas). About 30% of women will develop uterine fibroids within their lifetime. Fibrocystic breast disease affects about 60% of women.

Excess body fat is a reservoir for estrogen, which is counterproductive to your body's process of reducing abdominal bloating, fibroid growth, inflammation, bladder issues & abdominal discomfort. Elevated production of insulin is often a factor in weight gain & stimulates fibroid growth.

The best choice of exercise for you will depend upon your age, fitness level, symptoms, contributing causes & location of fibroids (uterine, breast, etc.). Exercise can be a powerful ally for targeting fibroids by affecting the flow of vital energy & circulation of blood & lymph. Specific exercises can reduce bladder- & uterine prolapse (if present), often reducing the symptoms of larger uterine fibroids, which may result in better bladder control.
Explore the best strategies for YOU based upon your special needs, budget & preference for convenience in avoiding xenoestrogens (estrogen-like chemicals) from the environment, hormone disregulators in toiletries, personal care products (isopropyl alcohol, parabens, triclosan, etc.) & harmful chemicals in cleaning products.

Our emotions affect the flow of vital energy (or "qi") & blood circulation throughout the body. Neurotransmitter levels & ratios, methylation, histamine levels, kryptopyrrole & zinc-copper ratios, just to name a few, affect our ability to be "emotional hearty" & to cultivate a healthy body image. We may experience depression, anxiety or mood swings. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) offers a powerful mind-body approach to form new neural pathways & extinguish old ones.
