A high-fiber diet is
recommended because it promotes the elimination of excess estrogen.
A diet focused on plant
foods are most effective, including whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits,
nuts, seeds, olives, and seaweed.
Essential fatty acid
balance is important. Cold-water fish,
such as salmon or sardines, is recommended twice weekly for
inflammation-reducing omega-3 fatty acids.
Olive oil is also recommended on salads.
Fermented soy foods (tofu,
natto, miso tempeh) have been shown to have a hormone-balancing effect on the
breasts. Consume two or more servings
A one to two week
detoxification program can be helpful to cleanse the colon and the liver. Also, a three-day vegetable juice fast once a
month can be beneficial. You can
supplement your fast with plenty of green drinks and cleansing herbal teas.
Foods to Avoid
It is important to avoid
caffeine (coffee, soda, and chocolate), because studies show such avoidance to
be helpful. We find that it makes some
difference for most women with this condition.
