stress, late nights, and uterine fibroids

Ran across this interesting quote from a doctor in Taiwan -- Chou Tzung-han (周宗翰), an attending physician at the Department of Traditional Chinese Medicine at Taipei City Hospital’s Renai Branch.
Uterine fibroids are not only caused by excessive hormone production, but hormonal imbalances do play a key role in stimulating fibroid growth, Chou said, adding that unstable emotions often cause abnormal hormonal secretion.
Stress from daily life or work, staying up late often and poor sleep quality can all affect hormone production, leading to an increased risk of uterine fibroids, so the first thing that women diagnosed with them can do is to change their lifestyle, he said.
