Herbal Remedies For Fibroids – How Herbs Can Help Shrink Fibroids Naturally

Herbal remedies for fibroids should not be seen as a total solution for women wanting to shrink fibroids naturally. However, they can and very often do, form an integral part of many successful strategies for naturally treating this condition.

Excess estrogen often plays a part in stimulating fibroid growth and this can come from different sources. Natural estrogen production and storage is closely linked with the amount of fat cells stored in a woman’s body, so for those women who are overweight and who suffer from fibroids, maintaining a healthy weight can be important and can limit the growth of existing fibroids.

For others the link with estrogen can be the storage in the liver of estrogen mimicking compounds which come from pesticides or pollutants. In this instance, the role played by herbs is one of helping detox the liver to remove these potentially harmful compounds, whose action can continue for years unless thorough detoxing takes place. Herbs which are known to help remove harmful compounds from the liver which in turn can help shrink fibroids include Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root and Artichoke Extract.

Some herbs can be beneficial in reducing the symptoms of fibroids. Yarrow, Nettles, and Cinnamon can all be useful in reducing heavy bleeding caused by fibroids, so an infusion of these herbs drank daily for a few days before your period is due to start can be very helpful. The Yarrow in the infusion can also help relieve painful periods as can ginger.

Herbs which help reduce inflammation can be useful in helping treat fibroids. These include Ginger, Yam and Willow. Again, they can be drank in a tea infusion.

It is vital to remember that although many people believe that because herbs are natural, they are also safe and this is not always the case. When undertaking treatment for any longstanding medical condition, you should always seek advice from a qualified person.

It was the lack of real help for women with fibroids led Shola Oslo, an alternative practitioner who specializes in teaching women how to use herbal remedies for fibroids amongst other robust treatments, 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. The author, Bernadette Hopkins, used Shola’s system very successfully-so much so that it made a huge difference to her life as she no longer suffered from the day to day problems which her fibroids had brought. Are you ready to get rid of your fibroids once and for all? To see details of her methods, please visit Shrink Fibroids Naturally For further general information and to learn all about the different types of fibroids plus the different treatments for each, please visit Alternative Fibroid Tumor Treatments. Many women have experienced great success in using Shola Oslo’s methods to shrink fibroids naturally in which herbal remedies for fibroids play an integral part.

About the author: Having suffered from very large fibroids herself, Bernadette was scheduled to undergo a hysterectomy when she decided to try an alternative treatment to shrink fibroids naturally. Success followed, and she enjoys recommending this method to other women so they can be free of the symptoms.

    • ANSWER:

      Goodness, you could be my “female problem identical twin”! Please, please, please, do not remove your uterus. You are not going to like me for this, but I am going to recommend that you go to a Reproductive Gynecological Doctor. They will help you repair the mess your body has made, all the while, ensuring that your fertility will be kept in tact. There is surgery you can have to remove them without doing lots of damage to the uterus.

    • ANSWER:

      Understand that you don’t want surgery due to the desire for more kids – but having had this problem myself, I advise you to take one more thing into consideration – your quality of life should you go for the herbal remedy. You could spend years trying various herbs with the accompanying discomfort, and end up in surgery after all of that. I had surgery and never looked back as I felt great again!

  3. QUESTION:

    Shrinking Fibroids Naturally??? Can it be done?
    I was just diagnosed with having 3 fibroids. One of which is 6cm and is causing some pain on my right side. I have known about these fibroids, but have approached the “wait and see” attitude until now. Because of the pain, and heavy bleeding each month, I am faced with a decision to make in terms of getting them taken out. I have however decided AGAINST an hysterectomy. I know of too many side effects resulting in having one. Ablation is not a choice either, as my fibroid is too big. I don’t want Lupron either. I am 47 years old, and Lupron is temporary. I won’t make it too menopause with this approach. I am thinking about three options. Mynectomy, Embolization, and natural alternative methods. The later is much more appealing to me, as I live a holistic lifestyle, and I’m scared to death of surgery and meds. Has anyone had any success in shrinking fibroids naturally?? I would be very much interested in reading about your experience and how you achieved results if any. Chinese medicine? Herbs? Acupuncture? I’m all for it if it keeps me off the operating table. Thanks for the advice…

    • ANSWER:

      Hi! I might I have some useful info for you. You want to try and reduce the amount of estrogen in your system since that’s what they need to grow. Here’s a list of some things you could try:

      Serrapeptase: This is an enzyme that eats cysts for food. I think it is amazing for inflammatory conditions and it should shrink your fibroids with continued use. Sold widely online and in health food stores.

      Myomin: A blend of Chinese herbs was developed by an Oriental naturopath, Dr. Chi. The supplement limits estrogen production, acting sort of like an “aromatase inhibitor” similarly to stronger prescription drugs (Aromasin, Evista and Tamoxifen).
      Sold online at www.energeticnutrition.com or www.chi-health.com.

      This supplement will you reduce estrogen load and when fibroids don’t get the estrogen they need, bloating might occur, especially right before your period and for a few days into your cycle. So it appears that your fibroid condition is worsening. Bloating should subside midway through your cycle. A colored discharge may also occur for a few months as the fibroids slowly dissolve and exit the body.

      I3C or DIM: This supplement is extracted from broccoli, cauliflower and other cruciferous veggies. It helps reduce estrogen in the body so the same warnings exist for this supplement as for Myomin.

      Evening Primrose Oil: It’s extracted from the seeds of a wildflower and provides you with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This can help relieve painful menstrual cycles, endometriosis and fibroid tumors too!

      Diet: No more fried food, dairy or meat because these may fuel the growth of fibroids. Eat more salads and fruits. Drink juices that are red and fresh, like pure pomegranate, grape or cranberry juice.

      Medicine: Wean off your birth control or hormone replacement drugs (with your doctor’s blessings) because these forms of estrogen fuel fibroid growth.

      If you’re interested in a natural progesterone, let me know. Hope this helps you! Sonja BalancedVictory@yahoogroups

    • ANSWER:

      Although this might seem rather strange, I have found the primary causative agent for breast cysts to be wearing bras, and every women I’ve known with the problem had it get better once she stopped wearing a bra for a few weeks.
      I can understand why you would be hesitant to do that, but there’s actually a lot of information showing bras are bad for your health (especially tight restrictive ones). They cut the lymph flow, which amongst other things leads to cysts.

      Beyond that, I know a few people who have cured both by using the disolving process (which is explained in a book called opening the energy gates of your body), along with a few others that did it via energy movement forms which made the fluids flow within their body (the best one in that regards was known as gods playing in the clouds).

      I’ve also read a lot of research data supporting the notion that DMSO applied to the are a cysts or fibroids in can cure it, but I’ve never had any first hand experience with this approach, mainly because I haven’t come to the point where it was necessary to do.

      There are a few herbal remedies which can help to mitigate it etc, but I am of the opinion they’re less effective than DMSO so I wouldn’t personally use them.

      Hope that helps!

      *I should also note none of the girls had their breasts get aesthetically worse after they stopped wearing them, an increase in size was the only noticeable effect.
