Amazing Fibroids Treatment
If you’re one of the many women who suffer with uterine fibroids, you may have questions. Here are some things you should know…
1. Three out of four women will have uterine fibroids at some point in their life.
2. Uterine Fibroids are noncancerous growths and do not increase your risk of developing uterine cancer.
3. Uterine fibroids are often detected during routine pelvic exams or by pelvic ultrasound.
4. Symptoms vary from mild to severe.
Women with Uterine fibroids often complain of the following symptoms:
1. Heavy menstrual bleeding.
2. Prolonged menstrual bleeding, usually seven days or more.
3. Pelvic pressure and/or pain.
4. Frequent urination.
6. Back or leg pain
7. Bloated feeling or abdominal pressure.
If you have any or all of these symptoms, you want them to end. Where do you go to find help? Many women go to their doctor. Doctors offer ideas to find relief. The only problem is, most of the time relief involves either medication or surgery, sometimes both. Medication may include birth control pills, which may help control heavy menstrual bleeding. It may also cause side effects that can be dangerous. Surgical options such as a hysterectomy, involves removing the uterus, this can lead to further health complications. It also leaves a woman unable to bear children.
Women who suffer with severe symptoms from their fibroids are often afraid of these options, so they live with the pain and the heavy blood loss. Many of these women have to compromise their lifestyles. They may stay at home while all the fun goes on around them. If this describes you, take heart there is another way.
Many experts believe that natural remedies are just as effective as the expensive medications. Here are a few possibilities to consider…
Red Raspberry- Used for excessive menstrual bleeding and to strengthen uterine muscles. It is also a rich source of nutrients.
Motherwort- This is used to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus. It can help prevent cramping and menstrual pain.
It is good to note that Motherwort and Red Raspberry can work together by reducing pain and heavy bleeding. They can also help balance hormones. Many experts believe fibroids grow because of too much estrogen.
Siberian Ginseng- This can help combat anemia which is caused by heavy bleeding.
Licorice Root- It is used to treat bloating and weight gain during menstruation.
In these economic times more people are considering herbal remedies. Not only are they more cost effective, they are often safer than conventional medication. Every medication that is advertised on tv has a list of side effects a mile long. You wonder sometimes if the benefits are worth the risks.
Natural medicine offers a safe alternative, and is more cost effective.
What about convenience? You could search out your local health food store, patiently sift through bottles of all the different herbs capsules that line the shelves. Sure, you’ll head to the check out counter with about ten or so bottles in your hand. The cashier will ring you up for a grand total of around 0.00 or more. Sound good? I didn’t think so.
You could always go to one of those health food stores, gather everything up and head to their check out line. You would save some money. But what about time? Now you have to go home boil, stir and cook. Maybe you won’t get it exactly right.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get it all in just one little capsule? Just one supplement to help with all your uterine fibroid symptoms? That would be too easy. It can and has been done. You just need to know where to look.
Frequently Asked Questions
Uterine fibroids, pain, heavy bleeding and irregular periods?
I have multiple large and small fibroids, severe endometriosis, severe adhesions (they thought I’d had chemo). I used to have very regular periods but they are now irregular and heavy with a long pms time around when I expect a period. I was getting one heavy one about every other month having to change pads every 15 minutes for one day of it. And a lighter one in between with alot of spotting. But sometimes I can have pms symptoms like I’m starting and not start for a couple weeks. (They say it’s inoperable.) Is this common? What should I be worried about? What can I do?
I had this same problem in 2005, I experienced heavy bleeding and it continued for about a week, quit with just spotting and then back to bleeding again. This was so bad it put me in a very weak state and finally decided to visit obgyn and had blood test and ultra sound done. I was so low on blood that I had to have 4 pints replaced due to so much blood loss. The ultra sound showed a fibroid tumor. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in September 2005 and the tumor removed. The fibroid tumor was causing the main problem for me, making my periods unbearable. Now I feel fine health wise, my blood count is back up, but of course I went straight to menopause, but I’m handling it the best I can. I wish you luck, have your blood checked for anemia and an ultra sound to see where and how large the fibroids are.
hysterectomy – there are no solid symptoms?
my wife has had health problems with the general area of her abdomen , and has been seeing a number of doctor to try and find a problem that after countless test , and countless years now have not received any answers. now after around 7 years , they are apparantly going to give her a hysterectomy , even though the symptoms such as bleeding , fibroids and all the other stuff dont exist in this situation, for a match in symptoms , it seems more likely just in plain guessing that the symptoms would suggest endometriosis, from a carers perspective , I dont think the hysterectomy will fix anything , as all things have been exausted to try and find a problem. will doctors remove anything if a patient request removal of something , if the symptoms dont exist for a particular problem?
the symptoms from my mother when she had a hysterectomy was a 2kg growth inside her uterus , my boss’s mrs syptoms was bleeding , lots of internet suggestions for symptoms suggest that for the general area (womb) is that syptoms such as hormonal problems , or consistant problems such as bleeding , would be suggested in tests , the test for the general area do not suggest there are any abnormal cells (bloods) and other suggestive tests for symptoms , have not given any solid answers .
I don’t mind if a hysterectomy is performed , I am just a bit worried that if a hysterectomy is performed and there is no change , it will change a lot of things.
it will be more an elective surgery to have a hysterectomy , as the symptoms do not suggest a legitimate reason to have it removed , under advice from a doctor.
You’re a good husband for searching for answers. YOU are SMART for making the connection that the symptoms don’t make sense with having a hysto. I just read a book by a doctor last week and I was SHOCKED…he said in med school surgeons are taught ‘to cut is to possibly cure’ There is NO guarantee as you mention. Unless they have 100 percent proof of what is causing her pain, why let them cut on her?? There are millions of women who have this surgery and are wrecked there after… messing with a woman’s hormones are messing with the very thing that make her a woman…There ARE doctors out there who will help you determine WHAT is CAUSING THIS!!! Don’t know where you live…but consider a naturopathic doc…they do not treat SYMPTOMS like most mainstream doctors…they find the problem and FIX what is causing it. Do a search for a naturopathic doc in your state…there are listings all over the internet. My doc wrote a fantastic book that explains the connects between hormones and women and HAPPINESS! 🙂 Dr Hotze – Hotze Health and Wellness Clinic – Houston TX
I wish you luck!!!!!! 🙂
P.S. he has quizzes on his website that may help too
Are fibroids, endometrial hyperplasia or polyps a precursor to cancer?
I’m 44 and had heavy menstrual bleeding. Ultrasounds and MRI showed three small fibroids, focal complex hyperplasia and polyps. I’ve been trying natural remedies which have improved menses dramatically, no longer heavy, nor as painful. Should I still have hysteroscopy or other procedure done, or does the resolution of symptoms mean I’m OK?
Not a precursor to cancer. Chances are the pain and bleeding will return. Interuterine scraping is another option, but I hear it is painful and not always effective. Hysterectomy may be another option for you if you just want to be done all together.
