Now that we have addressed some common concerns pertaining to our uterus, what can we do to repair her? Glad you asked! As stated earlier the cause of many uterine health issues are unknown, however do not be discouraged! Today we will lay out the foundation of some lifestyle changes for reducing inflammation, strengthening the immune system, supporting the liver, and balancing hormonal levels in order to prevent or eliminate abnormal growth in our womb.
The foods we consume and the toxins we are exposed to drive inflammation and hormone imbalances. Fasting has been known to purge the body and reboot the immune system. An article was written (https://dailyhealthpost.com/fasting-regenerate-immune-system/?fbclid=IwAR2pXWEeSzhgCsttDoza2CqHTuIefXNJtEJflWqN0VrLx1lGsOJtVPclpW8) which suggests fasting for 72 hours helps the body’s stem cells to begin producing new white blood cells, that in turn attacks infection and abnormal cells. If you are pregnant or nursing, other means of detoxing are available which are safe for you and baby. There is also a spiritual advantage in fasting for 3 days...spiritual and physical health go hand in hand!
Fuel ⛽️ Immune system booster foods like carrots, kale, cabbage, broccoli, beets, lemons, onions, garlic, and leeks rebuilds the womb. Adding fresh turmeric (which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and supports liver function) as well as ginger (which is an immune system booster and anti-inflammatory food) aids in restructuring uterine tissue. Juicing is an easy way to incorporate the above foods for building and maintaining womb health.
Maintenance 🏋️♀️ Exercise, reduce stress, and discontinue the use of household and personal care products containing chemicals known to denature cellular structure. Also, incorporate a herbal regimen (dandelion root, milk thistle, red raspberry leaf, flax seeds) to support liver detox, tone the uterine wall, and speed up estrogen metabolism.
We are very unique and complex individuals that cannot be grouped together to fit in a statistical range. What works for one may not work for another, but there are so many options to explore before giving up on our womb. A hysterectomy is not always the means to an end. Step out of your box and do not limit your possibilities, test and see your options, you may be pleasantly surprised!
