Q. What are fibroids made of?
A.
The matrix of a fibroid can be formed from excess fibrin, smooth muscle tissue, and generally, pockets of estrogen.

Q. What causes uterine fibroids and other women’s fibrosis conditions?
A. According to many health care professionals, estrogen dominance is the root cause of fibroids and other fibrosis conditions.

Q. What are the different types of fibroids?
A. There are four different types: Subserous (outer wall), Submucosal (inside the uterine cavity, Intramural (within the uterine wall), Penduculated (attached to the uterus by a stalk)

Q. Can fibroids grow in different parts of the uterus?
A. Yes, fibroids can grow in many different locations around and in the uterus

Q. What are some of the symptoms associated with uterine fibroids?
A. Heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular menstrual bleeding and spotting, pelvic pressure and pain, urinary frequency and urgency, constipation and hemorrhoids, infertility, loss of pregnancy.

Q. Can I expect to see a discharge as the fibroid is breaking down?
A. It depends; if the fibroid(s) are inside the uterine cavity, you may notice a discharge. This is a common sign that the lysing (dissolving) of the fibroid is occurring. The color of this discharge can range from clear to white to blood red or brown periodically during the first few months. If you experience any discharge that alarms you, please consult with your doctor. If the fibroid(s) are in the lining, they will be broken down, carried through the circulatory system and excreted via the bowel. This is not something one would notice.

Q. Will consuming soy feed the growth of uterine fibroids?
A. Soy is a concentrated phytoestrogen. Many women have related that the consumption of soy has contributed to the growth of their fibroid(s).

Q. What diet is best when attempting to shrink the growth of fibroids?
A. A low fat, high fiber diet is best. Eating organic meats, fruits & vegetables, and dairy will help eliminate xenoestrogens such as chemical pesticides and human growth hormones that can mimic estrogen in the body.

Q. What is a calcified fibroid?
A. Older fibroids can develop a calcium coating which is basically a hard outer shell that may be the body’s way of isolating the fibroid. This calcification can prevent the enzymes from doing their work.

Q. How do I know if my fibroid is calcified?
A.
Your doctor should be able to determine this via an ultrasound.

Q. What helps break down the calcification?
A.
Magnesium Citrate helps reduce excess calcium in the body when taken alone without calcium

Q. Should I worry about osteoporosis if I take magnesium without calcium for calcification of a fibroid?
A.
Generally, our diets are higher in calcium than they are in magnesium. Current research is showing that magnesium plays a bigger role in the prevention of osteoporosis than originally believed. After fibroids shrink, calcium can be added back into a regimen.

Q. Can I take Calcium D-Glucarate if I have a calcified fibroid?
A.
It would be best to avoid all types of calcium supplements while attempting to shrink the growth of a calcified fibroid in order to give the magnesium citrate an opportunity to work on reducing the calcification.

Q. Can Calcium D-Glucarate have a direct affect on fibroids?
A.
Yes, in different ways. This supplement can help prevent the re-absorption of used estrogen from the gastrointestinal tract. As a result, more estrogen is eliminated and less stays in the blood where it may continue to feed the growth of fibroids. Additionally, various studies indicate that this plant extract may be effective in inhibiting tumor growth during the initiation, promotion an progression phases.

Q. Are there any cautions regarding the use of Calcium D-Glucarate?
A.
Yes. It is possible that taking Calcium D-Glucarate could increase the elimination of certain drugs or used hormones from the body, thereby reducing their effectiveness. If you are taking any prescription medication, please consult your physician or pharmacist before taking this supplement.

Q. I have a very large fibroid and low thyroid; am taking Armour. You state you think there is a connection between the two conditions. Do you mean that unbalanced thyroid leads to fibroids?
A.
According to Dr. John Lee, "there appears to be a cause-and-effect relationship between hypothyroidism, in which there are inadequate levels of thyroid hormone, and estrogen dominance. When estrogen is not properly counterbalanced with progesterone it can block the action of thyroid hormone, so that even when the thyroid is producing normal levels of the hormone, the hormone is rendered ineffective and the symptoms of hypothyroidism appear. In this case, laboratory tests may show normal thyroid hormone levels in a woman's system, because the thyroid gland itself is not malfunctioning."

Q. Do I need Nattokinase if I have fibroids?
A. No, Nattokinase is primarily used for cardiovascular health. Pain Power contains a blend of enzymes that are helpful in shrinking the growth of fibroids without overly thinning the blood. Additionally, it is not suggested to take these enzymes in high doses, as it may overly thin the blood.
