Shrinking Fibroids Naturally – Reduce Fibroids Without Surgery

A couple of years ago, I went on a quest to find information on shrinking fibroids naturally. I’d had enough. I’d reached the point where the only solution being offered to me by my doctor was to have a hysterectomy. I’d had fibroids for a few years, although I’d only been diagnosed with them fairly recently. I’d suffered from bloating, incontinence, very heavy periods accompanied by anemia, discomfort and bowel problems. Looking back now I guess it seems laughable that I didn’t realize what was wrong. I thought I might have cancer. One of the doctors I’d seen a year or so previously even claimed it was “abdominal fat”! In actual fact, I had fibroids. Large fibroids.

Indeed a scan showed that my abdomen resembled a “7 month pregnancy”. It was no wonder I had all these symptoms. One of my fibroids was as big as a small melon and I had several which were the size of apples and groups of small fibroids. I was heartened to learn that at least they weren’t dangerous, but in a way I always got the impression that doctors felt this gave them a license to almost not take my fibroids seriously. It was a bit like “well, they’re not going to <i>kill</i> you, so get on with it!

I couldn’t get on with it though. My quality of life was severely compromised. I used to like running, but I got completely out of breath and I leaked urine every time I dared do any exercise. My periods were awful. I would soak several sanitary towels in a matter of hours and had to sleep on towels. As for sex, well this had stopped because it was just so uncomfortable and I later found out that the position of one of my fibroids meant that it was pressing down on the top end of my vagina.

I asked my doctor about methods of shrinking fibroids naturally, but was met with a blank stare. He said the only thing that would “sort the problem” was a hysterectomy. There were other surgical methods which are sometimes used to remove individual or groups of fibroids but in his words, I was “too far gone”. I really didn’t want a hysterectomy. I was only in my mid thirties and I knew people who had had one and gone through the menopause. Also, I was busy. I had 3 children and a husband who worked away a lot and I could not afford the time to spend months recovering from major surgery. Finally, I was scared to death of the hormonal treatment I would have to take before the operation. I was told I would need to take drugs to artificially shrink the fibroids before surgery to make it “less risky” but that these drugs caused dreadful side effects, such as osteoporosis, menopausal symptoms like night sweats and memory loss, drying, thinning vaginal tissues and facial wrinkling.

I needed time to think about this, so I scheduled an appointment for a month or so later. During that time I absorbed every bit of information I could about shrinking fibroids naturally. I learned that there is very often no “one” cause of fibroids but that there are certain conditions which can predispose a woman to suffering from fibroids. For example, an excess of estrogen is thought to contribute to fibroids in some women, so looking at ways to reduce this naturally can be helpful. Estrogen is carried by and produced in fat cells, so maintaining a healthy weight can reduce fibroids a little. In addition, it is known that certain pollutants and pesticides in the environment can mimic the action of estrogen and that these can be stored in the liver. Eliminating these by liver detoxing may help. Other women have found that using preparations of Chinese herbs helpful, although you would need to ensure you were taking a safe combination, specifically for fibroids if this was an avenue you wished to try.

There are a few alternative practitioners who specialize in women’s health problems, including shrinking fibroids naturally. However, they are difficult to find and can work out to be very expensive. The very fact that fibroids can have many causes is why you will not find too much specific information about how you can shrink them naturally, online. I found this very frustrating. Indeed I felt that people were holding back lots of information-I’d seen much anecdotal evidence that shrinking fibroids naturally could be done. I’d even read real-life stories in reputable publications. However, I could not find out how to do it.

Eventually, I decided to go ahead and purchase what looked like a very comprehensive system. I admit to having doubts but felt it was a last resort. As soon as I read through the masses of information I suddenly realized why I could not find the information online.

The very fact that fibroids can have multiple causes and very often the solution required is very much tailored to the individual. It would be pretty irresponsible to publish a haphazard array of advice which will certainly not be appropriate in every case and would not necessarily be helpful in shrinking fibroids naturally. Indeed what works for one person may not work for another and it it absolutely vital that you have a comprehensive understanding before beginning treatment. The system I chose is written by Shola Oslo, who is an alternative practitioner specializing in women’s issues. I found that some of my symptoms had subsided within a few days and I would say that within a couple of months, my fibroids had started to shrink noticeably. A couple of months after that, a scan revealed that the largest fibroids had shrunk considerably and some of the smallest ones had shrunk altogether. Needless to say, I did not go ahead with surgery! By way of an update, I still have fibroids, but they are so small that they cause me no symptoms at all. The bonus has been that I feel the healthiest I have in years!

    • ANSWER:
      Uterine fibroids aren’t cancerous that often appear during your childbearing years. Also called fibromyomas, leiomyomas or myomas. Uterine fibroids aren’t associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer and almost never develop into cancer.
      Medical therapy and surgical procedures can shrink or remove fibroids if you have discomfort or troublesome symptoms. Before making a decision, consider the pros and cons of all available treatment options in relation to your particular situation. Because fibroids aren’t cancerous and usually grow slowly, you have time to gather information before making a decision about if and how to proceed with treatment. The option that’s right for you depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your signs and symptoms, your plans for childbearing, how close you are to menopause, and your feelings about surgery.
      Hysteromyoma Plaster is an excellent choice. It can hep you recover fast from your fibroids. The plaster’s feature is to treat the internal illness by external treatment.

  2. QUESTION:
    Can someone please tell me, how is Total Hysterectomy Surgery for remove fibroids in UK?
    There is someone here, in Yahoo!Answers already made this surgery? I have big fibroids and maybe, I’ll need to remove it, so I would like to know somebody that already made this…There is too much painfull after surgery?How is the recovery after surgery? The days after surgery in a hospital? Somebody please help me, I never made any surgery in my whole life …
    Since now, thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      A lot will depend on which method of surgery is used. In the UK I believe that the majority of hysterectomies are still performed through an incision in the abdomen, but some are performed by way of the vagina and others through laparoscopy. I had a hysterectomy some years ago that was performed by an incision in the abdomen. Following surgery, I experienced some pain, but was given pain killers to help and I was not too uncomfortable. The one thing to remember, when you are first able to get out of bed following the op, (and if you’ve had the same type of surgery) you will feel that you want to bend forward when you walk – don’t do this! Even if it means walking very slowly, hold your body up straight. When I went home, I was told not to do very much for sometime, but with a family to look after, I did what I felt I could comfortably do, although I certainly didn’t lift anything for a while. Our body soon lets us know if we’re overdoing it. I had a full-time, sedentary job and was told to expect to be away from work for the usual 3 months, but I was able to return to work exactly 2 months after my op. Good luck and try not to worry too much, although it is only human nature to be fearful and you wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t experience some anxiety. I have to say that I felt really marvelous once I’d had the op and recovered – better than I had for years! (Obvoiusly, the other two methods are less invasive and the way you feel and the recovery time will differ to my experience).

  3. QUESTION:
    MRI guided Ultrasound surgery for uterine fibroids?
    Has anyone had the mri guided ultrasound surgery for fibroids? Im currently weighing out my options and wondered what others had to say about this procedure. Also was pregnancy successful once this procedure took place, if so, how long did it take to conceive after the surgery?

    • ANSWER:
      if you are serious about getting pregnant you must completely avoid any kind of surgical procedures. There are a number of natural options for uterine fibroid treatment which provide permanent cure. All surgical procedures with the exception of hysterectomy provide only temporary relief from the problem. This is because medical science is yet to idenitfy the root cause of fibroids. Surgery merely removes the fibroid tumors and not its root cause.

      There are a number alternative methods of treatment for uterine fibroids which systematically work to eliminate each and every probable cause of fibroids.
