Can Natural Treatment For Large Fibroids Work Effectively?

There are various natural strategies which you can put to use to deal with the symptoms of fibroids. However, did you realize that natural treatment for large fibroids can also be very effective, although it has to be said that the timescales involved will be longer than those needed for treating smaller fibroids.

It has to be remembered that the alternatives include painful and potentially dangerous surgery or drug treatment, neither of which are permanent solutions as fibroids will simply regrow unless you are able to remove the root cause. In addition, when you think about the time from diagnosis to treatment and add on your recovery time, then a few weeks concentrated effort of using natural methods without any side effects does not seem so bad.

Fibroids are thought to form as a result of the subtle interaction of a number of factors which might be present in a woman’s body at a given time coupled with hereditary and environmental factors. It can be very difficult to ascertain the exact causes in an individual women, although there are a number of common factors which apply in many cases. Very often, using an approach which encompasses removing all the known common causes forms an excellent natural treatment for large fibroids.

One common cause of fibroids includes excess estrogen. Not all women with high estrogen levels will have fibroids, but almost all women who have fibroids will have higher estrogen levels, so looking at ways to reduce this is a great starting point. One easy way to achieve this is to maintain a healthy weight as estrogen is made in and stored in fat cells. Another way is to try to excrete estrogen-like products which become stored in the liver and are a by-product of the ingestion of environmental toxins and pesticides. The best way to do this is to undergo a robust liver detox.

Your diet and lifestyle are also important. Women who stick to the principles of a healthy diet and who exercise regularly are less prone to fibroids than those who eat a poor diet. Therefore, ensuring that you eat a well balanced diet, rich in fresh fruits and vegetables will help and, very importantly, drinking plenty of water to keep your internal organs healthy and well-hydrated.

Another treatment for large fibroids is heat treatment. This can take the form of a warm bath or the use of a head pad or hot water bottle. The heat can help to ease congestion and improve circulation which, in turn, can relieve the painful cramping symptoms.

The lack of comprehensive “real” help for women led an alternative practitioner to develop a complete system for shrinking fibroids which mirrored what she taught women in her busy clinic. Her unique, 7 Step Plan has been successfully used by many thousands of women worldwide and for those who are willing to take charge of their own treatment and play an active role in their own healing, then this is simply ideal.

Sizeable fibroids certainly can be treated naturally providing you are willing to devote the necessary time and effort.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Why is it necessary to remove large uterine fibroid through operation?
    My wife was told she has large uterine fibroid(s) and if left unchecked could damage her kidneys as her uterus is expanding.Before that we had hopes that alternative medicines like yoga or herbal medicines might help but to no avail.She has been told complete removal of uterus is the best solution.What are the risks of such an operation and can someone be totally cured this way?What alternatives are there?

    • ANSWER:
      Of course someone can be totally cured this way–if there is no uterus left for a fibroid to attach itself to or to grow in, the condition will disappear,. The only downside to this is that she obviously will never be able to have children without a uterus. There is no viable alternative that I know of as a treatment for uterine fibroids, as these can eventually develop into cancer if left untreated, and I’m sure neither one of you wants THAT to happen!! (not to mention the damage that can occur to her kidneys & other internal organs!) PLEASE tell her to go ahead & have the surgery–it will not only save her from incredible future discomfort (read: AGONY!) but may also in the long run save her life!

  2. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to walk by yourself after a laparotomy myomectomy to remove a large uterine fibroid?

    • ANSWER:
      An intravenous line (IV) in your arm will give you fluid and nourishment. Once you resume eating and drinking, these IV fluids will be stopped. You will also have blood transfusions through the IV, if needed. You will receive an antibiotic through your IV every few hours for several days after your operation to prevent infection. The IV should not be painful. If it is, let your nurse know so that he or she can check it. Diet You will be allowed to eat and drink as tolerated. It is common to have a sore throat after surgery that may last for a few weeks.
      When you are in bed, the nurse will help you “logroll” from side to side as needed to prevent stiffness and promote good circulation. Logrolling is turning your hips, shoulders and neck at the same time without twisting your neck You should not lay on your stomach and you should not use the trapeze (triangle-shaped bar over your bed), as this will cause unnecessary strain on your back. You should ask for help when you feel ready to change your position.
      Activity is a very important part of your recovery. Since walking is the best way to recuperate and heal tissue, there are no restrictions for walking or stair climbing. You should not lift any objects heavier than 10 pounds, especially over your head, for the first four to six weeks at home.
      If you stay active and get out of bed everyday you should feel as good as new in about 6 weeks. As far as walking…two weeks, but I dont know about comfortably.

  3. QUESTION:
    Large uterine fibroid tumors?
    Did anyone who had large fibroid tumors in uterus successfully go another route than surgery to deal with the problem of pain, etc. My gyne told me my uterus has doubled in size since Januaary, I have two large fibroids, and there is no other option than partial hysterectomy. I’m in lots of discomfort as my uterus is pushing against my bladder and stomach but I would like to avoid surgery if possible. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      my mother had fibrioid tumors. she had to have a hysterectomy. they had to take out her uterus and one of her ovaries. she also didnt want to have the surgery but she is so glad she had it done because now she never has to deal with those tumors or her period ever again.
      im not sure what else doctors could do about fibroid tumors.
      good luck and hang in there !!

  4. QUESTION:
    I had a Laproscopic Myomectamy on July 18th to remove a large uterine fibroid. I normally get my
    menstruation on the 4th day of every month. Today is August 8th and I still haven’t got my menstruation. Is this normal?

    • ANSWER:
      Would you tell us how large it was?

      Do not worry too much. For so many reasons periods are not like a clock. Be patient.

  5. QUESTION:
    What’s the best solution to a large uterine fibroid?
    I have a fibroid that’s the size of a baseball and taking up all the space in the uterus. My ob/gyn suggested a hysterectomy based on the size of the fibroid. She also suggested an abdominal surgery as I’ve had two previous c-sections, one with quite a bit of scar tissue due to complications during the healing process. Has anyone else had a similar situation? I’m nervous about the abdominal surgery part and am not sure whether to have the ovaries removed, too. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Yes, I am finished with having children I have two that are almost adults now.

    • ANSWER:
      This is a medical question that is best discussed with your physician and maybe a second opinion.

      I can just share my experience. I had a hysterectomy (abdominal) due to fibroids 2 years ago. For me it was a great the best decision: I was 48 at the time, had 3 kids (all vaginal deliveries), was bleeding to the point of anemia and fainting, had periods of 10 days and longer, huge blood loss.

      I kept the ovaries since there was nothing wrong with them, and they may provide slight protection against cardiovascular disease (I have risk factors for that but not for cancer)

      I never got any menopause symptoms – not yet, and I am 50 now. My mother had a very similar experience although she had her hystrectomy at 56.

      My life quality has improved tremendously. I pretty much forgot all about it!
