Alternative Treatment For Uterine Fibroids

Despite the fact that fibroids are very common, they can be a difficult problem to deal with. The underlying issue is that unless you can eliminate the root cause, they will continue growing, even after surgery. This prompts many women to consider using alternative treatment for uterine fibroids.

Very often, doctors will actually recommend a “wait and see” approach, even when your fibroids are large and your symptoms are severe. This is because they are fully aware that unless you can change your lifestyle and make reasonable changes to your diet and exercise pattern, any surgery will have been a waste of time. As uterine fibroids are rarely dangerous, many can see the logic behind this type of approach but for a busy woman who is suffering from intolerable symptoms with a reduced quality of life, this is hardly what she wants to hear!

You may have heard of a drug which can cause uterine fibroids to shrink. Now whilst this is the case, it can only ever be a temporary measure prior to surgery as the fibroids begin growing again within weeks of the treatment being stopped. In addition, it can never be taken for more than a few months at a time due too the fact that it causes menopausal symptoms.

Alternative treatment for uterine fibroids should consist of a “whole body” or holistic approach. One of the common causes of fibroids is an excess of estrogen. Now not all women with excess estrogen will have fibroids, but almost all women with fibroids will have an elevated level of estrogen. So, although this is never an “only” cause, it is nearly always part of the problem.

Estrogen is related to body fat, and is stored in and manufactured by the fat cells in your body. Therefore, maintaining a healthy weight is a good way of naturally reducing this hormone. Some women have a tendency to store estrogen mimicking substances in the liver, which are derived from environmental toxins or pesticides and these can be notoriously difficult to eliminate. One good alternative treatment for uterine fibroids is to undergo a strict liver detox, possibly including herbal treatment.

For other women, having a condition which makes them prone to various inflammatory conditions can make fibroids more likely. Therefore, eating foods which have natural anti-inflammatory properties, such as hops, oats and cumin is thought to help.

Other worthwhile alternative treatment for uterine fibroids includes taking regular exercise and eating a good healthy diet low in animal fat and rich in fresh fruits and vegetables.

If you are prepared to put in some time and effort yourself, there is much you can do to help. Indeed, many women have found that it is entirely possible to eradicate their symptoms completely by using natural methods. However, this is not a “quick-fix” method and you must be prepared to make changes.

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 alternative treatment for uterine fibroids and recognize that they will have to play an active role in their own healing, then this is simply ideal. If, however, you are the type of person who will simply expect to take a pill and be cured, then this is maybe not the right system for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Are there any alternative treatment methods for uterine fibroids besides surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there is. Here is a link that shows various treatments.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uterine_fibroids#Treatment

      I had the uterine arterial embolization. It hurt like a mofo, but it was worth it. If you go with this option, you can email me at zyada_tx @ yahoo.com for more information.


      Do NOT let a doctor convince you that you must get a hysterectomy! Some doctors are convinced that hystorectomy is the only way to treat this (or perhaps they prefer the profit margin).

      Also, I heard very, very bad things about the medicine listed in that article. It’s basically an artificial menopause with all the grief that entails.

  2. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know of any treatments (alternative or medical) for fibroids which are causing miscarriages?

    • ANSWER:
      There is a relatively new treatment to remove fibroids. It is called Uterine Artery Embolization. This procedure involves placing a small catheter into an artery in the groin and directing it to the blood supply of the fibroids. Little plugs are injected through the catheter to block these arteries. This causes the fibroids to shrink. Hospitilization is rarely needed and most women have a faster recovery time. The other surgical method is a myomectomy (the surgical removal of the fiboids). You should talk to your OB/GYN to discuss your options. Good Luck!

  3. QUESTION:
    Fibroids treatment and the pill/other things that may help the pain?
    I have recently been told I have a fibroid in my womb after being in agonising pain for the last year since coming off the Ortho Evra patch. The symptoms I have match those of a fibroid, eg heavy bleeding, severe abdominal and leg pain, and a laparoscopy found a fibroid which is 3cm x 3cm x 3cm
    The docs said it is unlikely this would cause so much pain, but there is literally nothing else it could be caused by, so have been advised to continue treatment for fibroids. I am currently living on tramadol and other painkillers and anti inflammatories but cant continue like this as it will eventually cause other problems elsewhere in my body.
    On the first day of my period the pain is so severe i cannot move and i often vomit, so not very nice
    I was told by my surgeon to try the pill, i didnt like the combined pill as i have migraines, and i believe oestrogen encourages the growth of fibroids. So I returned to uni and asked my doctor here about going on the mini pill as advised by my surgeon. However the doctor here said that would do nothing to stop the pain. I was given Loestrin, a combined pill, but when reading the info leaflet it says do not take if you have fibroids of the womb???I am sick of recieving conflicting advice from 101 different doctors, and i am so desperate to get my life back, I am only 22 and in my final year of uni.
    If anyone knows anything that may reduce the pain, including alternative medicines, please let me know, I am willing to try anything!

    I dont want surgical treatment as because of the positioning of the fibroid there would be too much scar tissue in my womb and therefore wouldnt be able to carry children.

    Also, does anyone have fibroids and become pregnant?Did this effect the pain at all? Or anyone tried a TENS machine for the pain??

    I am literally desperate, so please any info you have would be much appreciated.

    Anyone who posts ridiculous answers will be reported IMMEDIATELY

    • ANSWER:
      You could do a procedure called uterine fibroid embolization if it is offered where you are located. It is a kind of procedure done by a radiologist to try and kill off the root system to the fibroid.

      I am going to include the link to a site that may help you find more information. The link is at: http://forums.obgyn.net/womens-health

  4. QUESTION:
    Has anyone every heard of female alternative surgery (vs. hysterectomies for fibroids)?
    and if so….Has anyone had this surgery at the “Institute for Female Alternative Surgery” in Glendale, California,and if so, how would they rate their experience with them and how do they feel about their recuperation after undergoing this alternative treatment?

    • ANSWER:
      I am not sure how the FAS would take care of the problem.

      I can only speak for myself…. at 34 I had 2 large Fibroids removed via myomectomy. Recovery was 6-8 weeks…..incision similar to a C Section.

      I thought well that’s that taken care of……all it bought me was 5 more years….at the age of 39 I had 4 large ones and some 30+ small ones……and resorted to the Hysterectomy, as I was not going to have my belly opened again with no guarantee it would be the last time.

      With that said….. while the FAS may work… it is possible to be right back to where you started.

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there a hormonal alternative to birth control?
    (Using Husband’s account) I have been on birth control ever since my period first started as a teen, which also started a bit late, to control a hormone imbalance. I have recently moved to a higher medication due to fibroids. However, for the first time my husband has expressed interest in possibly having a child. Does anyone happen to know if there is a treatment or pill that would deliver the same amount of hormones as the birth control pills without affecting fertility?

    • ANSWER:
      No, sorry, such a pill doesn’t exist. Bottom line is, if you’re taking enough hormones to treat a hormone imbalance, then you’re taking enough to affect fertility.
