Fibroids in the uterus, and cysts on the ovaries are benign (not
cancerous) growths, which can cause no symptoms, mild or severe
symptoms of pain, bloating and/or heavy bleeding.
Both uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts affect 75% of women. Fibroids
and can range in number and size from a single growth to multiple
growths, from small to large.
The ovaries can have single or multiple cysts, small or large. The type
of cyst that is more complicated to treat is Polycystic Ovarian
Syndrome. The main differences are the location and texture. Cysts
are fluid filled whereas fibroids are dense tissue. Both are diagnosed
through Pelvic Ultrasound.
You can prevent and treat both Uterine Fibroids and Ovarian Cysts
simply by understanding the causes (discussed below). Prevention is
always easier with lifestyle changes and boosting of Glutathione to
prevent or overcome it.
Conventional treatment for fibroids and cysts involve pain medication
and/or hormonal suppression with Birth Control Pills. Both fibroids and
cysts can require for optional surgery.
The cause of both fibroids and ovarian cysts are similar –
- Estrogen dominance or too high levels of Estrogen
- Oxidative Stress
- Toxin & Heavy Metal overload in the Liver
- Low Glutathione levels – Glutathione regulates most hormones and aids in the elimination of excess Estrogen and Toxins
Boosting Glutathione in the liver:
One of the most important functions of the liver is to break down and
remove excess hormones from your body. One hormone in particular
is estrogen. As you know, estrogen is a big player in our menstrual
health – it helps build the uterine lining etc,
Detoxing the liver will helps to regulate glutathione levels which is
required for removal of excess estrogens. Glutathione is also
involved in chelating heavy metal toxicities which can also promote
A healthy liver helps the body to function more effectively.
Reduces oxidative stress
Oxidative stress occurs when there’s an imbalance between the
production of free radicals and the body’s ability to fight them off. Too
high levels of oxidative stress may be a precursor to multiple
diseases. Glutathione helps stave off the impact of oxidative stress,
which may, in turn, reduce disease.
An article cited in Journal of Cancer Science and Therapy indicated
that glutathione deficiency leads to increased levels of oxidative
stress, which might lead to cancer. It also stated that elevated
glutathione levels raised antioxidant levels and resistance to oxidative
stress in cancer cells.
The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione. The
bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress,
trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione.
This leaves you susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration
from oxidative stress, free radicals, infections and cancer. And your
liver gets overloaded and damaged, making it unable to do its job of
Take supplements to increase your glutathione levels.
Glutathione is the master of all antioxidants and it is required by your
body so it can properly detoxify every day.
Basically it just mops up all the mess and helps your body get rid of it.
The problem is low Glutathione levels, oxidative stress, and the
inability to adequately detoxify leaves us with low immunity and poor
health due to the accumulation of toxins and carcinogens.
Taking Immunocal daily will help your body produce the much
needed Glutathione to get rid of excess Estrogen, overcome
Oxidative stress, Detoxification as well as to overcome Inflammation.
Immunocal is developed in McGill University in Canada and it is the
only known clinically proven effective Glutathione precursor in the
