Fruit & Veggies: Colorful fruit and veggies are rich in flavonoids which block an important enzyme in estrogen biosynthesis. Even if youre a strict vegan its hard to avoid the hormones in the food supply. Trying to be as close to your ideal weight (cut excess body fat), exercise, and eat healthy (fruits & veggies, limit meat/dairy) will help your fibroid situation alot (and will improve your overall health too !
