An Integrative Approach to Fibroids, Endometriosis, and Breast Cancer Prevention

Joel M. Evans, MD

What do fibroids, endometriosis, and breast cancer have in common? Estrogen. This hormone is a contributing factor in the growth of fibroid tumors, endometriosis lesions, and many breast carcinomas. In fact, estrogen-sensitive breast cancers are the most common type of breast cancer. Translated, this means that increases in estrogen production and decreases in estrogen elimination are potentially harmful for the body. Inflammation a biologic process now implicated as fundamental in many systemic illnesses also has a role, as do abnormal blood sugar metabolism (dysglycemia) and even emotional stress and spiritual uncertainty or discomfort. Therefore, the scientific basis for an integrative treatment plan involves 1) normalizing estrogen production, 2) enhancing estrogen elimination, 3) decreasing inflammation and dysglycemia, and 4) reducing as many life stressors as possible.
