Uterine Fibroids are non malignant tumours that grow in and around the female uterus mainly due to an excess of Estrogen in the body. Uterine Fibroids are not a life threatening condition for the sufferer, but they may cause pain, heavy bleeding and cramping, as well as more serious complications like miscarriage and infertility. Many women live with this distressing problem for years with no resolution.
Medical science is limited in its options for the successful treatment of this condition and tends to turn to surgery to excise the tumours from a woman’s body. Unfortunately, this procedure is very invasive and does not solve the root cause of the problem. Often surgeons elect for a full hysterectomy, the removal of the uterus, which means that falling pregnant is impossible and early menopause becomes an issue.
To avoid the necessity of surgery one can work on shrinking the fibroids by balancing the levels of Estrogen in the body. There are a number of ways to do this and many of them are non invasive and natural.
Solutions to Uterine Fibroids
The medical option would be to undergo Hormone Therapy, as directed by a Medical Specialist. Your Endocrine System would be stimulated to balance volumes of hormones produced by the body.
Herbal Remedies, particularly Auyurvedic and Chinese herbs can be very effective in targeting the source of the problem. For best results, consult a registered practitioner who can tailor your treatment to you and work from the root cause upwards.
Diet has a large role to play in the health of the Endocrine and Reproductive systems. In the modern day, many of the foods which we assume are nourishing our bodies are actually causing damage covertly. Avoid farmed meat and fish at all costs, unless these are organically farmed as these often contain hormones to speed the animal’s growth. On ingestion, these hormones enter your blood stream, and cause imbalances and often infertility. Soy products naturally contain phyto-estrogens, substances that mimic human Estrogen and confuse the body.
Finally, exercise is important in keeping the body healthy. Yoga can be particularly helpful to the sufferer of Uterine Fibroids, as particular postures work on balancing the hormones and restoring the body to health.
