How To Heal Fibroid Tumors Naturally
If you have been looking at treatment options and would like to know how to heal fibroid tumors naturally, you may be interested to learn that you have a much better chance of a satisfactory outcome by using a tried-and-tested natural treatment rather than having surgery or using drug treatment.
Surgery for the removal of fibroids gives no guarantees and many women find that their fibroids regrow. Drug treatment is only ever used prior to surgery to make fibroids a more manageable size as this carries serious side effects and because of this can not be used for more than around 3 months.
The reason why conventional treatments are ineffective is because they do not treat the root cause of fibroids, which can be many and varied, and the only way to successfully heal fibroid tumors is to eliminate the causes of the fibroids and this will allow them to naturally shrink. There are a handful of alternative practitioners who specialize in teaching how to heal fibroid tumors and a consultation and treatment plan could prove costly.
However, there are steps you can take right now to begin to heal your fibroids. Firstly, it is well recognized that fibroids grow in response to an excess of estrogen and it has been shown that estrogen levels are higher in overweight women. Therefore, weight control and the maintenance of a healthy body mass index is one way of ensuring that estrogen stays at normal levels.
Certain pollutants in the environment can mimic the action of estrogen within the body and can fuel fibroid growth. As pollutants and toxins are stored in the liver, a comprehensive liver detox can be an effective way of beginning to shrink fibroids.
Herbal remedies have also proved useful and the following herbs have been used successfully in the treatment of fibroids:
* Milk Thistle
* Dandelion Extract
* Ginger Root
* Wild Yam
In addition to herbs, certain foods with anti-inflammatory properties can help to shrink fibroid growth, particularly in women who are prone to inflammatory conditions and these include cumin, oats and hops.
Frequently Asked Questions
If I have a fibroid mass removed will i be able to get pregnant?
Only your doctor will be able to give you an educated answer on this.
What’s the $ costs of removing fibroid, cyst and mass by Laparoscopy or Hysteroscopy? FL and non-FL surgery.
Ultrasound images shows that I have an enlarged uterus (10.4 x 5 cm) with a 8 cm mass that might be a fibroid. There are also a 3.7 cm cyst and a 9 cm “complex mass which is predominantly solid”. An MRI was recommended by the analyst.
I am in the process of scheduling an MRI with a OB/GYN. The one I am referred to is not on my insurance’s “Preferred Privider” list, but he is the best in town. Since surgically removing the masses by Laparoscopic Myomectomy or Hysteroscopic Myomectomy is very likely, I am worry about the costs, my insurance will only cover 60% for out-of-network surgeon. Can anyone share their experience? The cost of:
– Hospitalization and Surgery
In short, how much is the total bill (before insurance reimbursement) to get the whole thing done and be over with?
Laparoscopy surgery is very safe nowadays. My cousin got her Hernia and colostomy surgery in India by a company called Forerunners Healthcare .The Price for Minimal Invasive and Laparoscopy surgery is very less in India. She paid 25% of the cost she was quoted in America.
Forerunners Healthcare is very famous in India. They arrange Hernia, Appendectomy, Thyroid and other laparoscopy surgery for foreigners in India.
I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and about their patient stories. They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low price, as the Hernia, Colostomy and other minimal invasive surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.
Hope this helps.
I am looking for the name of a condition in uterus which is neither a fibroid nor a leiomyosarcoma.?
It is a fast growing mass / fibroid look alike but apparently there is a condition that is not a fibroid and not cancerous yet? Any ideas? Thanks.
Thanks for responding but it is in between a fibroid and leiomyosarcoma. The conditioin is not a cyst or endometriosis… It is a fast growing mass but not fibroid and not leiomyosarcoma! That is all i know. Thanks.
I have polycystic ovaries, a fibroid and a possible mass. Why doesn’t the doctor want to remove the fibroid
This is very frustrating for me. I will be 30 in two days and I have never been pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 10 years ago. I had a laparoscopy done in 2004 because of pain in the pelvic area. They told me I had scar tissue and they removed what they could. Also, they could not confirm whether the right tube was open. Last year, I went to a Reproductive Endocrinologist and he prescribed Metformin. I took that for 4-5 months but it made me sick so I stopped. Since then my periods have been regular, but very heavy and painful. I had an ultrasound last month and it showed a 4″ fibroid on my uterus and a mass on my right ovary. They referred me to an OBGYN doctor and he had me do an HSG. The HSG confirmed that both tubes are open, the left one was slow to respond but the dye eventually spilled out. Yesterday I had my appointment with the OBGYN and he did a ultrasound to look at the mass. He said he is unsure if it is a mass or another small fibroid, but my problem is …
I don’t feel comfortable with how the doctor is treating my condition. He basically told my husband and I that we need to figure out if we want to have a baby then he can help us in that area. I asked him about the fibroid and the mass and he didn’t seem concerned at all. I was always told that you could not get pregnant if you had a fibroid. The doctor said he delivers babies all the time when women have fibroids. But sometimes there is pain and sometimes there isn’t, so am I supposed to just deal with the pain? He said my options if I am not trying to get pregnant right now are to take birth control pills, and if I am trying to get pregnant he can prescribe Clomid or something like that. He said I have enlarged ovaries (which I have been told before) and he said because they are so large he doubts that I am ovulating (same thing another doctor told me). So with that said, why isn’t he trying to help me get that resolved …
instead of just blowing off the fact that I have PCOS and I have pain? What should I do? I have been to several OBGYN’s.
In my mind, I want the fibroid removed and I want him to identify whether or not the mass is actually a mass, another fibroid, a cyst, etc. He said the mass could be a swollen tube. But doesn’t he want to confirm that? I feel as if most doctors talk very fast and try to explain things and just kind of force you into thinking there’s nothing wrong with your body. At my first appointment with this doctor, he said surgery was a possibility, especially if the right tube was still blocked (as they confirmed in 2004). But it turned out that the HSG was normal so that wasn’t an issue. But why would he want to leave the fibroid in there. It’s almost like I would be trying to get pregnant, knowing I don’t ovulate and knowing I have polycystic ovaries, a fibroid and a mass.
Likely the reason he is not wanting to remove the fibroid at this time is because you don’t have kids. Removing it can cause scarring that can prevent you from conceiving or carrying a pregnancy full term.
If you choose to try to have kids there are drugs that can often shrink a fibroid enough to create an environment that is good for pregnancy.
If you feel uncomfortable with this doc you should look for a new one or speak with him again. Explain to him you are not understanding some things and that you would like him to go over everything with you.
As far as the pcos and enlarged ovaries. There is no cure unfortunately. There is nothing the doctor can do to fix the ovaries. The treatment options are few. A low sugar, low carb diet is one and metformin. Maybe you can handle a lower dose of metformin.
Really the treatments for all these conditions you suffer from really depend on whether you want to have children or not.
I have a 9x7x7 mass in my uterus but it is not a fibroid
2 weeks ago, I had a pap smear and my doctor stated my uterus felt enlarged. She asked me to make an appt. for a pelvic ultrasound because she thought I had fibroids and it was no big deal.
Yesterday I had that ultrasound and my Dr. called me first thing this morning. She said I had a “fairly large mass” and it was definitely not a fibroid. She is going to refer me for a catscan asap and then wants me to see a gynocologist. She made it very clear that it is not a fibroid and they want to “make sure it is nothing serious.”
I’m scared out of my mind.
