Shrinking Fibroids Naturally – How To Eliminate Fibroids

If you are on the lookout for ways of shrinking fibroids naturally, then you will be pleased to know that there are ways to eliminate fibroids without surgery. Very often, there are very few or no treatment options given by doctors other than surgery and whilst surgery will get rid of the fibroids, they are highly likely to grow back, unless you have a full hysterectomy. This can therefore be classed as nothing more than a temporary treatment and many women believe it is simply not worth it only to have fibroids return a few months after surgery.

However, one of the drawbacks of shrinking fibroids naturally is that it does require some effort and a little determination. Looking at the theory behind natural treatments, it is easy to understand why. Fibroids are caused largely by the lifestyle of the sufferer and also sometimes as a result of certain pre-existing conditions which may have been inherited or which could have developed over time. Indeed, it is sometimes difficult to determine exactly why fibroids have grown in certain cases, and here lies the problem.

The only way to successfully eliminate fibroids is to determine the root causes and then remove these. This will naturally cause the fibroids to shrink, in combination with other specific treatments. As the causes of fibroids are very often multi-faceted, in that they are often caused by the subtle interaction of a number of factors, it can be very difficult to determine the exact ones which are applicable in many cases.

This means that most treatments for shrinking fibroids naturally must encompassed many different elements to ensure success

What this means in practice is that if you are determined to shrink your fibroids, you must be prepared to sometimes alter a number of aspects of your diet and lifestyle to ensure success. For many women, they are simply not prepared to put in the effort. For the ones who do though, they very often experience very dramatic results. Indeed almost 90% of women who follow an approved regime for shrinking fibroids naturally will see measurable success.

One of the vital elements in any system which shows how to eliminate fibroids it the management of estrogen. This is often thought of as the “fuel” for fibroids and indeed an excess is thought to spark off fibroid growth. Estrogen is stored in, and manufactured by fat cells so a good starting point for many women is to take a look at their diets and see if modifications can be made if they are overweight.

For some women, weight is not a problem, but estrogen can still play a part as many pollutants in the environment and certain pesticides can mimic the action of estrogen in the body. Once these enter the body, they can be difficult to eliminate as they are stored in the liver. A thorough, robust liver detox can combat this and is one element of many good treatments for shrinking fibroids naturally.

For other women, another factor may be inflammation. It has been shown that women who are prone to inflammatory conditions have a higher likelihood of having fibroids. Simple treatments for this can be eating foods which have natural anti-inflammatory properties, such as oats, hops, cumin and rosemary.

It has long been known that Chinese medicine can play a part in helping to shrink fibroids, with herbs such as Semen Litchen, Spica Prunellae and Fructus Corni being beneficial.

The lack of real help for women with fibroids led Shola Oslo, an alternative practitioner who specializes in teaching women about shrinking fibroids naturally, to develop a complete 7 step system which is completely guaranteed. Her busy clinic left her unable to take on many additional patients but the demand was clearly there. As a result, she has now helped thousands of women worldwide who she has never met.

Please bear in mind though, this requires you to be proactive and take charge of your own healing by making dietary and lifestyle changes and following a systematic program-it is not suitable for women who simply want to take a tablet and be cured.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Abdomen / bladder question?
    Over a month ago I started having lots of pressure and achiness in bottom of abdomen & more frequent urination.. sometimes up 4 times x night to urinate. Had urine tested. I could not see blood in it, but the lab nurse said there was “a LOT of blood” in it. Put on antibiotics. They did not help so went back to dr. This time urine showed blood and protein, put on a different 10 day course of antibiotics. Helped a little while taking them, then same pressure and pain back. Dr thought maybe uterus was enlarged, pressing on bladder so he sent fme for a pelvic ultrasound. Uterus/ovaries normal on ultrasound report. Am now on 3rd straight round of antibiotics. Pain is less but still have a heavy, bloated feeling over my lower pelvic area.

    Also want to mention, the ultrasound was excrutiating! When I had to drink enough water and wait for my bladder to fill, it was almost unbearable and I really am not exaggerating. WHen she finally got the u/s done and let me go to the bathroom, I was crying.

    Any ideas please???? I really thought the u/s would show something. The technician kept questioning me about whether uterine fibroids had ever been diagnosed in my family and explained what they were, etc. so I was completely surprised when the nurse called today and said the u/s was normal.

    Thanks.

    I’m mid 30s, female and have fibroids. The fibroids are pressing on my bladder and making me pee a lot. Could they be affecting my bowels too?

    I’m lactose intolerant and have IBS. So I always suffered from constipation, but I haven’t been constipated in weeks.

    I am 42 yrs old and have been experiencing heavy loss with clots for about two yrs the bladder probs started more recently

    • ANSWER:
      I had hysterectomy 15 years ago, at age 35, for same problem. Fibroid size of a grapefruit, I was told. Painful periods, heavy bleeding and blood clots, dreadfully tired and drained and anaemic, all affecting my way of life. Put up with it for years until I consulted a female gp who had some sympathy. The fibroid will press on your bladder and make you want to wee, and often makes sex very painful. If you’ve finished having children, get rid of the problem with a hysterectomy if possible, you’ll never look back. Life without periods – heaven!

  4. QUESTION:
    Ovarian cyst and fibroids?
    Ive been having heavy periods and heartburn for awhile so my doctor sent me for an ultrasound which I’ve just come back from, the radiologist found a large fibroid pressing on my bladder and a large ovarian cyst on my left cyst, she said the cyst looks like it may be bleeding into itself and it was echoing back showing matter inside it,i’m really worried now, about the fibroid and the cyst and what treatment will be needed, my mum had a hysterectomy at 42 for fibroids and I’m 39 is it likely I will be the sane way, also I’m petrified of cancer too, can anyone who has had either fibroids or cysts offer some advice.
    Thanks in advance a very worried person today :(

    • ANSWER:
      I can understand your fear but you need to take a deep breath and try not to panic until you see the surgeon, which will hopefully be soon. I do know that most doctors will only consider a hysterectomy as a last resource, hopefully with one they may be able to remove it with out the womb. The cysts I would think can be removed by keyhole surgery. Until the doctors mention cancer I would not worry to much. I know it is hard but try to keep calm and speak with your doctor and get the facts before you worry about things and hopefully there will be nothing to worry about. email me if I can help in any way. Good luck

  5. QUESTION:
    Abdominal fullness, fluttering and cramping and sore veiny breasts?
    Can anyone help me? 4-8DPO – Had fullness in my uterus – suddenly very ‘aware’ of my uteus. Not painful but felt like it was pressing on my bladder. 9-13DPO – Fluttering feelings in stomach and mild pinching. Fluttering goes away when I stand up. Pinching in my belly button. 9-13DPO – sore breasts. They first felt tingly but now are quite sore. Get sudden pains down them. Very prominent blue veins leading into nipples but now I am getting prominent veins all over (never seen this before). 7-13DPO – period cramping with heaps of cervical mucus but no sign of period.

    I am currently 13DPO. Fairly sure I’m not pregnant – several disappointing negative tests. Even my doctor is confused. He said it is not uterine fibroids, gas or constipation. Any ideas??? He said it could just be hormonal. Going back on Monday for bloods and urine. Anyone experienced anything like this? Thanks so much – quietly going insane.

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely all of the symptoms of early pregnancy are exactly the same as those you can get just before your period.

      When you are trying to conceive it’s very easy to try and attribute every little oddness to pregnancy, as you’ve never really noticed them before, when it’s just probably the fact that you are paying such very close attention to everything you’re feeling down there.

      Your body doesn’t know that it is pregnant until a fertilised egg has implanted in the wall of the uterus and begun releasing pregnancy hormones, and that can happen anywhere between 6 and 14 days past ovulation.

      I start getting cramping the day I ovulate and it tends to continue off an on until a few days into my period. My breasts get sore during ovulation and stay sore until my period.

      There really is no point taking a pregnancy test until your period is actually late – implantation can take up to 14 days, which is usually when your period would start, and it takes several days after implantation for the HCG levels to build enough to be picked up by the tests.

      The tests that say they work even before your period, only work if implantation happened at the early end of the range.

      The ideal time to test is at 18DPO.
