How to Shrink Uterine Fibroids Naturally

If your fibroids are causing you unbearable symptoms but you do not want to go down the conventional route of surgery or unpalatable hormonal treatment, you may have been wondering how to shrink uterine fibroids naturally. There are certainly ways in which this can be done, but before even considering this method, there are a few points which you need to consider first. The very nature of fibroid formation means that there is no easy way of shrinking fibroids naturally-despite what some may lead you to believe.

However, that is not to say it cannot be done. There is no one specific cause for fibroids, but they are believed to form as a result of the subtle interaction of a number of factors which interact in a woman’s body. In isolation, it is unlikely that these factors would cause fibroids to grow, but combined together, fibroid growth is sparked and the cumulative effect of the causes of fibroids means that left unchecked, they will grow larger and larger.

Who Gets Fibroids?

* Overweight Women-Women who are overweight are more likely to have fibroids than those who are of a normal weight. This is because estrogen plays a part in fibroid formation and can act as a “fuel”. Estrogen is both stored in and formed by fat cells and this means that overweight women naturally have more.

* Women Over 35-Age is definitely a factor as after the mid-thirties, the chances of having fibroids increases significantly. * Afro-Carribean Women-Ethnic origin also plays a part, with Afro-Carribean women being more likely to have fibroids.

* Women With A Family History Of Fibroids-Hereditary factors definitely play a part and can predispose women to fibroids * Processed Meat-Eaters-It is thought that women who eat a significant amount of processed meats are more likely to have fibroids. Conversely, a diet rich in green vegetables is thought to have a protective effect

* Women who inadvertently consume pesticides or certain pollutants which can mimic estrogen in the body

If you would like to know how to shrink uterine fibroids naturally, thinking about your estrogen levels is a sensible starting point. If you are overweight, losing excess fat will naturally reduce estrogen in the body and this will both prevent further growth and depending on the factor played by estrogen in your particular case, may begin to shrink the fibroids. In addition, the estrogen situation can sometimes be helped by following a robust liver detox plan which can help eliminate the pollutants which are mimicking estrogen as these are stored in the liver. Eating a very healthy diet which is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables-particularly leafy green vegetables can be helpful as part of an overall strategy as can taking herbal supplements such as Agnus Castus and Milk-Thistle, both of which have proved to be helpful. Reducing your consumption of processed and red meats is undoubtedly beneficial as is eating only organic produce which will not have the addition of pesticides or pollutants.

One very important thing to bear in mind is that as there is very often no definitive cause of a woman’s fibroids-normally only supposition-this means that to be effective, any treatment must be all-encompassing. This therefore means that there are very often many facets to successful treatment and that women must be motivated and accept that if they want to shrink uterine fibroids they will have to be prepared to make changes and to be rigid about following these through to guarantee success.

There is generally very little help for women who are wanting to know how to shrink uterine fibroids naturally and this often prompts women to consider surgical options which may not always be the best option.

It was the lack of real help for women with fibroids led an alternative practitioner who specializes in teaching women how to shrink uterine fibroids, 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.

I have had great success in using this system personally-indeed it has saved me from the trauma of a hysterectomy. Are you ready to get rid of your fibroids once and for all?

  3. QUESTION:
    uterine fibroids and back pain? tailbone pain…anyone experience fibroids?
    I found out I have 3 fibroids, a 6 cm one and two smaller ones. I had a baby 10 months ago and when I first became pregnant, the pain in my tailbone was excruciating. The big fiboid got to softball size while pregnant and is now 6cm. I thought the pain would go away after the baby, just thought it was a pregnancy ailment. But now, I can’t sit on hard surfaces or lay on the floor without excruciating pain. I feel like I am being stabbed in my tailbone whenever I sit down. I have been complaining to my obgyn about the back pain and he sent me to a physical therapist. no help. My cycles are super heavy now and I’m miserable. I just left the obgyn doctors office about my ultrasound for the fibroids and he said not to do anything about them unless I am done having kids. I told him I’m not sure and he said to just take Aleve. That’s not cutting it. On the way home, my husband said, did you ask him if that is why you are having the back pain? I didn’t even think of that. Now I am reading online about firoids and back pain and I’m thinking this could be the cause. Has anyone experienced this type of pain with fibroids?

    • ANSWER:
      try motrin/ibuprofin and sitting in hot baths.

      I feel for you.

      I had them..and I told the doctor it was like someone grabbing the skin of his testicles with a pair of vice grips and twisting.

      I went through the super heavy periods too..then I had a hysterectomy a few months later.

      The doctor felt all the fibroids on the day of the operation and apologized for the five years of pain..

      but My pain was not nearly as bad as yours. Not even close.

      If Motrin does not work (it did for me) maybe try tolectin or robaxin.

  4. QUESTION:
    If you have a fibroid in your uterine wall is it operable?
    I am so confused. I have read a lot about laproscopic and vaginal surgeries for fibroids, but a receptionist at a dr.s office said that surgery would only work for fibroids outside the uterine wall. I just found out that mine is in the front part of the uterine wall and is 1.7 x 1 cm. Can anyone please let me know if surgery is an option for this type of fibroid? Thanks

  5. QUESTION:
    How do you know if you have a Uterine Fibroid or a Ovarian Cyst?
    Hi guys! I’m just wondering, how would you know if you have either or, or both? Are ovarian cysts close to the belly button? Do uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts cause two different types of symptoms? Is one more common than the other in younger women as apposed to older?

    I’m 26, and think I may have one of these. I feel a small mass, like a dime or quarter size close to around my pubic hair above my pubic bone, on the right side. I don’t feel much pain but discomfort when I get up and start walking.
    I really want children in the future… Will I be able to have a normal sex life and healthy children in the future? Thanks so much for your help!!
    And I’m going to be making a ob/gyn appt tomorrow, what will the doctor do when I go in to get checked? Thank you!
