For centuries, vinegar has been used for various household and cooking purposes. It is also an ancient folk remedy, claimed to help with all sorts of health problems. The most popular vinegar in the natural health community is Apple Cider Vinegar. It is claimed to provide various benefits including weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and improved symptoms of diabetes. The benefits of apple cider vinegar come from its powerful healing compounds, which includes potassium, magnesium, acetic acid, enzymes and probiotics.
Apple Cider Vinegar’s effectiveness against many ailments can be explained by its acidic nature. That’s why it is also considered antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Fibroids are caused by the acidic nature of the body and by helping the body to become more alkaline may help to fight off various diseases. ACV has an alkaline effect in the body by helping to raise the pH level from an acidic one to a more alkaline one which can help the body become healthier.
Why Apple Cider Vinegar for Fibroids?
ACV has natural detoxification properties that promote a healthy liver and other organ functions, while also naturally cleaning the body of the buildup of wastes and toxins. Some of these toxins and chemicals will stimulate the estrogen hormone which is counter-productive because fibroid tissue feeds on estrogen. Accumulating pockets of waste can create an environment prone to fibroids.
Being overweight is another risk factor for fibroid development and ACV can help with weight loss which indirectly helps to fight off various weight related diseases and conditions including fibroids. Because of above mentioned health benefits ACV is recommended to women who are suffering from fibroid condition.
Apple cider vinegar is also one of several foods that are known to provide anti-inflammatory benefits. The latest research shows that inflammation of the uterus lining or walls could certainly promote fibrous pockets of tissue. Reducing inflammation can have a positive effect on internal organs, arteries, even your teeth. The same goes for the uterus.
Lowering estrogen levels is a vital part of the equation. A large fibroid on the outer wall of the uterus could at least be reduced in size enough for symptoms to subside and smaller fibroids especially in the uterine lining could shrink completely with persistence and time.
It’s recommended to have one tablespoon or two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar per day. It should be mixed in a liquid, because direct consumption can wear at the tooth enamel as well as cause burns to the sensitive areas of the throat and mouth. You can mix it with water, tea or milk (soy, almond milk, etc. are better than dairy milk especially for those with fibroids).
