Fibroids Natural Remedy – Stop Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are tumours or growths, made up of muscle cells and other tissues that grow within the wall of the uterus. These non-cancerous growths are made up of muscle fiber, and can develop as a single growth or in cluster. The exact cause of fibroids is not known, but they seem to be influenced by estrogen. This is probably why fibroids usually appear during a womans middle years when estrogen levels are at their peak. Because fibroids can be very troublesome, a lot of women experiencing from them try to find ways on how to shrink fibroids naturally.
Women who are nearing menopause are advised to simply wait and see how it goes. This is because during menopause, estrogen levels drop, and so there is a probability that the uterine fibroids would just gradually shrink. Fibroids may not pose such a huge problem after the menopause is complete.
However, while waiting, these women may still use a number of natural and alternative therapies that can help ease the symptoms of uterine fibroids.
An example of these therapies is taking one to two tablespoons of blackstrap molasses a day, followed by one small glass of water. Another way would be to mix the blackstrap molasses with a small amount of warm water in a glass, or to mix it with a teaspoon of warm water and then fill your glass with milk. Molasses help by way of its rich potassium and iron content. Aside from molasses, taking one teaspoon or two of apple cider vinegar everyday is known to be of help.
There are several other ways to shrink fibroids naturally. Also, there are ways by which you can manage its untoward symptoms such as excessive bleeding and bloating. All you have to have is some motivation, and you can be on your way towards a fibroid-free life.
Frequently Asked Questions
cat scan on soft tissue calcification.in ovary. results- please help with results?
this is in regard to a soft tissue calcification on a normal size ovary.
I wrote before telling everyone about the soft tissue calcification found on my normal size right ovary.. Well the results of the cat scan is 2.1cm calcified mass.The differential diagnosis includes a right dermoid, or ovarian cyst versus calcified fibroadenoma?????
can anyone tell me about these and if I am not having any symptoms( the original was found on a yearly ultrasound for hormone replacement therapy) that does anything need to be done right away??????
oh also I had a ultrasound in 2006 in which I had a fibroid on the right uterine body measuring 2.1×1.3×2.2 and it said it contained internal calcifications??? isnt this the same thing ????
An ovarian cyst like a functional cyst is just a sac that is filled with something like fluid and are noncancerous.

cat scan results and need help.. please?
I got the results of a cat scan.. the ultrasound I had said i had a soft tissue calcification ( 2 years ago in the same spot an ultrasound at a different radiology dept said I had a calcified penduculated fibroid in th same spot) I had to go to a new radiology dept for insurance purposes and they say soft tissue calcification but get a cat scan..
I got the cat scan and it says it can either be a dermoid cyst, ovarian cyst or a fibroadenoma and now they are suggesting an MRI.
I am not having any problems with this.. I originally went to my primary dr for hip pain from exercise.. and he did a series of tests and he was doing a pelvic ultrasound and I asked him if he would do a transvaginal ultrasound and that is when all this came about…
So now I want to know if any of this is serious if I have no symptoms.
thank you to whoever can help me with this.
Cystadenofibroma of the ovary, a relatively rare benign tumor, usually appears during the fourth and fifth decades.
A dermoid cyst is quite a different type of cyst and more commonly occurs on the head, neck, ovaries. It is most common on the ovary and is usually benign.
You haven’t given enough information. Neither type is commonly cancerous, you must ask your doctor or OB/GYN to explain this to you properly. We can only guess and could be very wrong.
A dermoid cyst is very different in construction from a fibroadenoma, you need someone to interpret the CAT scan to you properly.
And it’s all a bit different from a calcified pedunculated fibroid. If a qualified doctor or radiologist has not explained everything to you how can we?
Can anyone tell me what this means? is it serious?
a medical report from a US pelvis non-OB complete exam reads:
“…better seen on the transabcominal than endovaginal imaging is an apparent myometrial mass-like contour of 1.8 cm in diameter to the right fundus which appears to contain bright echoes suggesting minor central calcification
endometrial echo is 3 to 4 cm thick maximally.
the ovaries appear normal. Nabothian cyst formation is noted of no relavance… a small posterior right fundal fibroid is suspect ”
anyone have a clue? thanks
Yes it is very serious.
please advice and input on this.. I fear I have cancer?
I’m new here and not sure if i’m at that right place but i’m really hoping for some advice and input. Heres some history i’m 27yrs old and have 3 children, I just had a baby 5 months ago.. this is when all my problems began. 4 weeks after the birth of my son i went to my ob and recieved the depo(5-19-2010) shot cause i already had a tubal ligation scheduled (7-20-2010) and she said that was the best method of birth control before then considering i have NEVER been on birth control before, ok well after i had my son my stomach never really went down, anyways i had the tubal everything went great i recovered normally, my stomach was still descended though but i never brought it up thinking it was normal, well another month goes by and i still look 6 months pregnant and friends family everyone was telling me it wasnt normal and something was wrong.. of course i just let it go in one ear and out another… well a few weeks ago i ended up in the ER cause i just couldnt handle the pain anymore and was starting to really think ok maybe there is something (symptoms i have had for a couple months: heartburn, indegestion, pain/cramps in my stomach, heavy feeling in my stomach, lower back pain, and my pubic bone is sore) well the ER didnt do much, the gave me a ct scan which they said i had uterine fibroid so i make an appt with my ob.. well my ultrasound was yesterday and no fibroid, but i have a cyst on my left ovary and calcifications in my uterus.. also she said the left side of my uterus showed up white on the ultrasound so i was scheduled for a DX Hysteroscopy and D&C Oct 15th 2010, i’m scared to death i have no idea what any of this means and they would not go into detail about my uterus but could tell me about my cyst on my ovary which has me even more concerned she said well lets just do the surgery and i’ll get your results in about 2-3 weeks and we’ll go from there, can someone please tell me whats going on.. i have never had “female” problems this is all new to me and the lack of knowledge doesn’t make this any easier..

There aren’t any ‘official’ people to answer questions. I remember asking a friend when she was expecting, and you can imagine what she said. She had had much the same troubles as you, but hers turned out to be a fibroid the size of a large foetus. You need to go back to your health professional with a list of questions about possible cancer (I’m assuming this is what you are most frightened of) or other conditions, but all will become clear once you’ve had your op as they will take samples of everything they find to investigate further. Meanwhile, be kind to yourself. I know it’s impossible not to worry, but try not to.
