Welcome to our website. I am the founder and owner of Energetic Nutrition, which began in 1996. This is my story of finding a natural alternative to shrink my fibroid tumors.
I had fairly large uterine fibroid tumor and some small tumors. I used a systemic enzyme product, Vitalzym to shrink the tumors to a manageable size in 6 weeks, and obtain further shrinkage over time. I was able to avoid a hysterectomy that I desperately did not want. I later added hormone balancing supplements to maintain the size of the fibroid.
As you read my story, know that helping other women with fibroids is a very personal mission for us, and we are here to assist you. Our website contains extensive information about fibroid tumors and hormone balancing. We have a knowledgeable staff to answer your questions by phone, email, or Live Chat. And you can count on our lightning fast order and shipping department to get the products to you when you need them.
I was first told I had uterine fibroid tumors in 1999. I had never heard of them before. Each year at my annual exam my doctor would mention them, saying they were harmless and would most likely shrink at menopause. He never said they would grow larger and larger until they became bothersome and might need to be removed or treated via a hysterectomy or other unpleasant means (such as fibroid embolization or heavy doses of hormone suppression drugs).
If I had known that, I would have tried to get rid of them before they became a problem. Actually, I should have done research on them. I usually am on top of things like that, but he acted like they were nothing and should be of no concern. He said they were nothing to worry about. I now say, yeah right, nothing to worry about UNTIL they become a problem!
The tumors started bothering me by causing irregular periods, and a little heavier bleeding than usual - basically a mild case of menometrorrhagia. I was especially bothered by having a full bladder. It was very painful to hold much fluid in my bladder, as there wasn't much room in my abdominal cavity for excess fluids or solids. One day in 2003 while driving over a mountain pass in a late spring snowstorm, I was without a restroom for about 2 hours. By then I could hardly walk with the pain of a full bladder.
Not surprisingly, shortly thereafter I developed a bladder infection. I tried to heal it with natural methods and thought it had gone away, only to find that I now had a kidney infection. I finally accepted that I needed an antibiotic, and took one. After several days I woke up in pain again, and assumed the infection was not gone. My doctor sent me to the outpatient emergency center at the hospital, and they talked me into a very expensive MRI to check my kidneys. The ER doctor said my kidneys were fine, but asked me if I knew that I had a fairly large fibroid tumor mass in my uterus? I said yes, I did, but that my GYN wasn't concerned about it. The ER doctor was concerned and told me I should see my GYN to get it removed, as it could be a cause of my pain and contribute to further infections because it was pressing on my organs. Alarmed, I went to my GYN and he immediately scheduled me for surgery in 2 months. This was in May of 2003. He said my tumor mass was about 12 cm, the size of a 16 week pregnancy.
I was not a happy camper at the prospect of a hysterectomy. I did some research and was concerned about the effects that losing my organs would have on my hormonal balance. I did not want to go into instant postmenopause and the aging that is associated with that at only 47. Even if I left the ovaries, I wondered what hormones the uterus may secrete into the body that we don't know about, but that I might really want at my age. I was concerned about the affect losing my uterus would have on sexual response and feeling. I did not want to spend the money, take the time, or go through all the pain. I was determined to find another way.
I did research on uterine fibroid tumors to find alternative methods for shrinking them or eliminating them completely. I began to understand that a dominance of estrogen was likely the cause. At this time, I was speaking with a customer about health in general and he mentioned Vitalzym. It was helping him tremendously with the pain from inflammation he had had in his hips for years. I then read about Vitalzym, and wondered if it could be used to help shrink fibroid tumors. I learned that the enzymes in Vitalzym eat excess fibrin in the body, and uterine fibroid tumors are made of fibrin. I thought I'd give it a try and ordered the 450 capsule bottle to be sure to have enough to determine if it was working for me.
My bottle arrived, and I started with 6 capsules the first day, 9 the next day, and 12 the next. On the third day I noticed a discharge that is similar to ovulation time discharge, and that told me something was going on because the time was not right for me to be ovulating. On day four I took 15 capsules, and for the next six weeks I took 12 to 15 capsules per day. The discharge continued. I realized that my abdomen was getting smaller about week three, when one morning I pressed on my abdomen just below my navel, expecting to find the top of the tumor as before, only to discover that it was about 2 inches down from there! I hadn't been feeling the tumor those first three weeks because I didn't expect a change that soon.
|By week six I could not feel the tumor at all. I wasn't having any more symptoms and the discharge had stopped! I was overjoyed, and called to cancel the surgery. My doctor was concerned and found it hard to believe they were shrunk, but he left me to my decision. Vitalzym had made a huge difference in the size of my fibroid. It was then that I added Vitalzym to the products I offered on my website.|
At the end of those six weeks I cut back on my dosage to 9 per day, which I continued for another six months. I now take 6 to 9 Vitalzym per day to maintain the shrinkage and eliminate any new fibrin that grows in that area and anywhere else in my body. (Note: I was taking Original Vitalzym. We now recommend Extra Strength Vitalzym for fibroid tumors, which has a lower dosage.)
I am so happy that I found Vitalzym (thank you, Glen) and still have my female organs intact - and that I am out of pain and discomfort and no longer have irregular periods (they are nearly always 28 to 30 days apart now).
It has been a year, and none of the symptoms have returned.. I can feel my uterus in the morning before I rise, and it is nearly a normal size. My tumors are small enough that they do not cause me any problems, unless I neglect taking my maintenance dose of Vitalzym and do not manage my hormone balance properly (I also now control excess estrogen and help to keep my hormones balanced by the use of DIM, Progesta-Care and Calcium D-Glucarate). When I'm not taking my supplements as I should, I can feel them begin to increase in size. A few weeks of getting back on track will have them shrunk back to a manageable size again.
I decided to make it my personal mission to save as many women as I can from surgery and suffering. I have made it my mission because I feel grateful to have found Vitalzym. Additionally, my grandmother, whom I was very close to, died while having a hysterectomy, so this is very personal to me. It seemed only right that I should tell other women with fibroids about Vitalzym, therefore I added it to our line of quality natural products, and am now sharing my story.
I cannot say for sure that Vitalzym will help you in reducing your uterine fibroid tumors, or how quickly it will work, but it is worth a try. Certainly, it will improve your health in many ways. My tumors shrunk very quickly - more quickly than usual because I was already very healthy. If Vitalzym works for you, it may take 3 to 6 months, or longer, for significant shrinkage of your tumors, depending on the size of your tumors, your state of health and your hormone levels. Please do read all the recommend links from this page. They will answer many of your questions. If you wish to speak with us about fibroid tumors, or about the natural supplements we offer, feel free to call or email.
Wishing you all good health,
To my delight, since I posted my story in August of 2004, we have reached thousands of women who welcomed this natural approach. Vitalzym and the accompanying supplements have helped countless women shrink their fibroid tumors to a manageable level, and avoid surgery.
Our website has grown quite a bit since then. We provide Vitalzym and hormone balancing products to women all over the world - more than 110 countries as of 2008. Along the way we have added many other exceptional products for both women and men. In many cases, the products we offer were chosen with our fibroid customers in mind. We created RegenaCell, our own anti-aging moisturizer without parabens (xeno-estrogens). We also offer excellent multi-vitamins, and products for detoxification, joint and skeletal health, immune support and more.
We have a knowledgeable staff to help answer your questions, and we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. Don't miss our Blog.
Energetic Nutrition is the ORIGINAL website that suggested enzymes for uterine fibroid tumors.
We're here for YOU!
Since we began reaching out to women with fibroid tumors and other women's fibrosis conditions, we have learned much about what causes these conditions, and what and what can be done about them. We have shared that knowledge on our website. We especially encourage you to read the following information available on our website:
Start with our Fibroid Tumor page, then follow the links from that page.
Please read Suggested Use of Vitalzym for those with Fibroid Tumors for suggestions regarding using Vitalzym to shrink your tumors.
In addition, you may also find it beneficial to supplement with DIM. DIM metabolizes excess estrogen, which helps correct estrogen dominance in both women and men. For many women, using DIM is an important part of managing the size of uterine fibroid tumors.
Natural progesterone is suggested by many health care practitioners for hormone balancing. We offer a high quality brand with no synethic chemicals (which many products include). It is formulated according to Dr. John Lee's suggestions.

The women who have used Vitalzym for their uterine fibroid tumors are amazed at the results, and it brings us such satisfaction to hear their excitement and tears of joy and relief. Vitalzym has also helped women with endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts. One woman was in terrible pain with scar tissue from endometriosis surgery from years before, and her doctors offered her no solution. Within 2 weeks of taking Vitalzym she was out of pain! One of my good friends who had fibrocystic breasts for over 20 years began taking Vitalzym for general health. Within weeks of starting Vitalzym she noticed one day that they were gone!!
Women have asked how they can help inform other women about this alternative. I've suggested that they post their success story on message boards related to the subject, tell other people they know who are suffering, and send women to our website to learn and to purchase the products. Much of the profit, after the discounted price, is spent on the very expensive search engine advertising that is necessary for our website to appear so women can find this information when they search the subject. Together I believe we can make a real difference. Many healthcare practitioners have contacted us about Vitalzym when their patients asked about it after seeing my website, and many send their patients to our website for the products. It is wonderful for these women to have a supportive health care provider who can guide them through this process. In today's world of surgery and prescription drugs as the usual answer to a health care concern, this is real progess!!
