Herbal Remedies For Uterine Fibroids

Herbal remedies for uterine fibroids have been used for many years with varying levels of success. Originally most common in Chinese medicine, more and more alternative practitioners are turning to herbs to treat all manner of conditions naturally. Due to their very nature, conventional treatments only temporarily remove the symptoms of fibroids and it is important that you understand that unless you tackle the origin of the fibroids, they will simply regrow in time. One sobering statistic is that even after fibroid surgery, regrowth can often be detected within a few short months.

Fibroids grow due to the subtle interaction of various factors within a woman’s body and this is what can lake successful treatment somewhat difficult. Common factors include being overweight, your diet and lifestyle, having inflammatory conditions, and your race. Additionally, women who show sign of having environmental toxins in their bodies are predisposed to fibroids.

Herbal remedies for uterine fibroids can play a multifaceted role. Herbs such as Milk Thistle, Artichoke and Dandelion Extract are good liver detox substances and can help remove environmental toxins.

Herbs can also help in symptom treatment. Painful and uncomfortable fibroid symptoms such as painful periods and heavy bleeding can be helped by herbs, with Nettles, Cinnamon and Yarrow all helping with the problems of excessive bleeding, bloating and cramps.

Herbs which are known for helping to reduce inflammation within the body are also thought to be beneficial for reducing the size of fibroids. Such herbs are Ginger, Willow and Yam.

If you are wanting to treat the condition naturally, there is no doubt that herbal remedies for uterine fibroids are an excellent component. However, using herbal preparations in isolation will only be of limited benefit as to ensure and guarantee success, you will need to make simple yet decisive lifestyle and dietary changes.

Fibroids are a condition which respond very well to natural remedies and they are an ideal condition to treat because as they are so rarely life-threatening. It makes complete sense to try out a natural treatment for fibroids before resorting to surgery or any of the hormonal drugs which can cause their own side effects.

There is an excellent ready-made herbal preparation which can be used to supplement natural treatments for fibroids. Containing all the essential herbs to help to both shrink and treat the symptoms of fibroids, you can find details on my website, Herbal Remedies For Uterine Fibroids.

    • ANSWER:
      Uterine fibroids are benign tumors of the smooth muscle that makes up most of the uterus. They are mostly found incidently duiring a routine ultrasound, and don’t cause much of a problem. If they are large or numerous however they may cause pain and heavy periods.

      Since the surgery to remove them may interfere with your ability to become pregnant, surgery is only recommended for severe cases in women who definitelly are finished with having a family. There is a newer, non-surgical technique called embolization. With this, the blood supple to the fibroid is plugged, and they just shrink.

      On a review of Cochrane and PubMed, there is no “alternative” technique that has been shown to work.

  2. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know about alternative medicine for fibroids?

    • ANSWER:
      tylenol

  3. QUESTION:
    Are there any alternative treatment methods for uterine fibroids besides surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there is. Here is a link that shows various treatments.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uterine_fibroids#Treatment

      I had the uterine arterial embolization. It hurt like a mofo, but it was worth it. If you go with this option, you can email me at zyada_tx @ yahoo.com for more information.

      Do NOT let a doctor convince you that you must get a hysterectomy! Some doctors are convinced that hystorectomy is the only way to treat this (or perhaps they prefer the profit margin).

      Also, I heard very, very bad things about the medicine listed in that article. It’s basically an artificial menopause with all the grief that entails.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any treatments (alternative or medical) for fibroids which are causing miscarriages?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a relatively new treatment to remove fibroids. It is called Uterine Artery Embolization. This procedure involves placing a small catheter into an artery in the groin and directing it to the blood supply of the fibroids. Little plugs are injected through the catheter to block these arteries. This causes the fibroids to shrink. Hospitilization is rarely needed and most women have a faster recovery time. The other surgical method is a myomectomy (the surgical removal of the fiboids). You should talk to your OB/GYN to discuss your options. Good Luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    I just found out the I have relatively large fibroids?
    I jus found out the I have relatively large fibroids. I am trying to get pregnant, and the doctor told me that the fibroids need to be removed before I try getting pregnant. The surgery sounds like a procedure I rather not go thorugh. Does anyone know about a naatrual way to get rid of fibroids? Special diet? Alternative medicin? i want to try a few months of the alternative way before I decide to go through surgery. I would great appreciate every reply.
