New Treatments and Cures for Fibroids

We, humans, are generally tough, durable and long-lasting. Every year there are more centenarians, people 100 or more years old. We are now coming to understand that certain nutrition and lifestyle choices we make have not only short term effects but also intermediate term (10-20 years) and long term (40-60+ years) effects on human health.

In nutrition, this means that there is a minimum amount of Vitamin C we need to keep from getting scurvy. So the recommended daily amount of Vitamin C was once set just high enough to keep people from getting scurvy. Later we began to realize that while low amounts of vitamin C kept us from getting sick, they did not promote optimal health.

The cycle for getting scurvy is measured in months. There is a longer general health cycle in play, measured in years, which calls for much higher vitamin C daily allowance levels.

There are still longer cycles of nutrient deprivation and lifestyles involving many different nutrients, phytochemicals, antioxidants, etc. These deprivations can lead to diabetes, circulatory problems, heart disease and maybe Alzheimer’s disease and others.

We also know now that numerous pollutants (like lead and mercury) and certain substances found in processed foods (like trans fats, nitrates and certain preservatives) have long-term life-shortening effects on everyone.

All this pushes us to avoid artificial drug solutions and move toward more natural cures.

This new perspective now helps us with uterine fibroid cysts, with choosing psoriasis creams and in alleviating symptoms of ovarian cysts.

Our biochemistry is quite complex. There are apparently genetic links to more diseases and conditions than we ever suspected just a few years ago. As we continue to decode the complex interrelations of genetics, DNA, biochemistry and causes and effects of what we ingest, we are finding new solutions to old problems in often surprising places.
