If you are wondering what causes fibroids in the uterus, the truth is that there is no single cause. Fibroids are thought to form due to the subtle interaction of a number of primary and secondary factors which happen to coincide, causing growth to start. These factors include a combination of dietary issues, your lifestyle, environmental factors, your internal and external balance, poor health, a weakened immune system, toxic build up and a lack of exercise.
One of the reasons why Western medicine seems to fail in treating fibroids in the uterus is because it tends to focus on dealing with isolated symptoms, or the affected parts of the body, rather than looking at treating the body as a whole and eliminating the root causes of the condition. Put simply, because the causes are multidimensional, then successful treatment must also use an approach which deals with each and every potential cause.
Some of us are more genetically prone to have fibroids, but this in itself is unlikely to cause fibroids in the uterus. It is only when combined with other likely factors that fibroids will start to grow. Indeed, despite a genetic tendency, there is much we can do to prevent fibroids and we can really make a difference by changing our diet and lifestyles.
When looking at what causes fibroids in the uterus, we can isolate it to 5 primary causes:-
1. Genetic Predisposition
2. Poor Dietary Choices
3. Weakened Immune System
4. Accumulation of Toxins (including environmental toxins)
5. Insulin Resistance and Obesity
These 5 factors, coupled with other issues such as hormonal imbalances, taking medication such as antibiotics, steroids, certain prescription medication stress and lack of sleep provide the perfect environment for fibroids to grow.
However, don't lose heart. These issues can be reversed by using a natural method to eliminate all the common (and less common!) causes of fibroids.
