A FIBROID FRIENDLY BLOG
Why I love Mushrooms
When I got on my holistic journey years ago due to fibroids, I started to research foods that were beneficial for hormonal imbalance and reducing inflammation. Mushrooms popped up! I read how mushrooms have properties that are antibacterial, immune-enhancing. I was anxious to keep my diet healthy so I incorporated it into my diet. The only mushrooms I’d eaten were mainstream and store-bought. I would saute it with grapeseed oil, cayenne pepper, and Himalayan salt…yummy! I never thought I would fall in love with them, despite the non-appetizing look of mushrooms.
Recently, I started doing more research on mushrooms and connecting with Holistic experts. Maitake mushrooms were mentioned a few times, I dug more into its numerous hormonal benefits. I discovered that mushrooms come in all different types and shapes. Mushrooms offer hope when it comes to fibroids & PCOS.
Both conditions are common among women of childbearing years, it can cause troubling symptoms like hormone instability, heavy or irregular menstrual cycles, etc. However, all mushrooms have health-boosting properties and block estrogen, a hormone that is the root cause of fibroids and PCOS. Maitake mushrooms like other medicinal mushrooms can help normalize the body from uterine fibroids and help with infertility due to PCOS. Fibroids are pretty common, 80% of women will get fibroids. A condition that causes non-cancerous tumors to grow on the uterus. According to Healthline, PCOS is a “syndrome” or group of symptoms that affect the ovaries and ovulation. Genes, insulin resistance, and inflammation have all been linked to both conditions.
