How to Treat Fibroid Bloating Naturally

Knowing how to treat fibroid bloating naturally is not too difficult. Indeed, a number of simple steps can help to alleviate many of the symptoms which your uterine fibroids are causing. Of course, treating bloating can be helpful, but it is only a temporary measure and the only way to be truly free of your symptoms permanently is to use a system which shrinks your fibroids altogether.

Very often, abdominal swelling and bloating is only noticed when the fibroids have already become significantly large so that they fill much of the uterine cavity. Many women also notice back pain together with the fibroid bloating and the two symptoms together can be debilitating. Pressure is often put on the other internal organs and the nerves in the area often making the pain excruciating.

For women wanting to know how to treat fibroid bloating naturally, try the following steps for relief:-

* Try stretching your lower back. Crouch on your hands and knees and arch your back (a bit like a cat!). Also try stretching out each leg in turn behind you when still in the hands and knees position

* Lie down and rest with your legs slightly bent and elevated. Some women find it helpful to place a pillow under their knees

* Try eating foods known for their anti-inflammatory properties such as oats, rosemary, cumin and hops

* Use heat therapy. A warm bath or heat pad can be very soothing

Symptomatic relief for fibroid bloating is fine in the short term. However, unless you are able to eliminate the root causes of your fibroids then it is likely that they will continue to grow. Surgery and drug treatments do not remove the causes so it is likely that your fibroids will return. However, by using natural methods to systematically eliminate each and every possible cause of fibroids, you could join the many thousands of women worldwide who are completely free of bloating and all associated symptoms for good.

Written by a former fibroid sufferer, the system you are about to see is, quite simply, groundbreaking, and I am confident that you will feel relief that you have finally found something that will genuinely help you get rid of your fibroids.

About the author: Gail advocates using natural treatments for fibroids rather than using conventional medication or surgery as this is a workable long term solution. Conventional medication only treats the symptoms and fibroids are likely to regrow, whereas natural treatments, when used properly can eliminate the root cause by rebalancing the body and restoring overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what causes fibroid, can they be treated naturally?
    My gynecologist told me there are only two options 1) medicine 2) removing the uterus, any side effects with the second option? Am now on medication but am scared if it doesn’t work

    • ANSWER:
      YOu could have it cauterized thru a laparoscopy or there is another treatment that is similar to chemotherapy. Unless you definitely don;t want more children. removing it may be an option, but some docs won;t do it depending on your age. If you do have your uterus removed, it can put you into early menopause.

  2. QUESTION:
    what causes fibroid & does it affect fertility.?
    before i conceived, i was diagnose of uterus fibroid later after some treatment, i conceived but sometimes i still feel pains during & after menstral period. now i am nursing & does not menstrate is it because of this dianosis?

    • ANSWER:
      Fibroids can cause very painful and heavy periods. They very rarely, if ever are cancerous. They can grow to a very large size and can be the reason why a lot of woman have hysterectomies. Sometimes they will strink once menopause sets in, and sometimes they won’t. If your fibroids are causing you trouble and you know for sure you have a fibroid, then see your Gynecologist. With all the medicines available, no woman should have to tolerate extreme pain or heavy bleeding during ‘that time’ of the month.

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the possible causes of fibroid and what are the possible solution or cure apart from operations?

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t think they have a complete idea as to what causes fibroids, although genetics are certainly a component. IMO, cholesterol probably also plays a part.

      There are three treatments in addition to surgery. Uterine Arterial embolization is the treatment I had when I had fibroids. It’s not exactly surgery, but not exactly not – I went under twilight sedation (awake, but not able to feel much) and the doctor used a catheter to direct the treatment directly into the area it was needed.

      I have never liked the sound of how the medicine that can be used works – it basically starts an artificial menopause.

      Finally, HIFU is very new. I haven’t heard from anyone who has used this, but it sounds very promising. I’d like to hear from someone who has used the procedure.

  4. QUESTION:
    Anyone out there who is familiar with the new fibroid treatment where the blood vessels are snipped?
    I am not sure what the proper name for this procedure is I believe it’s fairly new. So, far I’ve heard that it’s done laproscopic and the blood vessels around the fibroid are cut w/ a laser and then the blood supply is cut off from the fibroid causing it to shrink up and fall out on it’s own. Anyone know if this causes infertility? or have any additional info. about this procedure? THANKS!!
