Womens-Issues Natural treatment for fibroids is most certainly worth considering if you are feeling worn down by the debilitating symptoms which fibroids cause. Are you one of the many women who feel frustrated and disillusioned with the frankly unsatisfactory options offered by conventional medication? I certainly was. I had a group of fibroids, the largest of which was as big as a small melon. The only option offered to me was a hysterectomy as the doctor considered them too large to treat individually. I was only in my mid thirties at the time really did not want to lose my uterus. I was worried about going through an early menopause and all the problems that could bring, but I was also at a point when I couldn’t go on any further as I was. I was out of breath all the time, I had urinary incontinence, my abdomen was, as reported by my doctor, the size of a 7 month pregnancy, my periods were like a flood and I felt "old" before my time. I was permanently anemic and couldn’t run around with my two kids. Before making a final decision about the hysterectomy, as a last resort I decided to try a natural treatment for fibroids. I’d read about it so many times, but discounted it, thinking that surely the doctors would come up with something. But they didn’t. I gave myself 3 months to try out a natural treatment for fibroids and I decided to go for it wholeheartedly. In common with all women, I didn’t know exactly what had caused my fibroids so I used a multifaceted approach which kind of "mopped up" all the possible causes of fibroids. The approach I used involved modifying my diet, using liver detoxes to remove environmental toxins and pesticides, taking more regular exercise and taking certain herbal and dietary supplements. Strategies to reduce estrogen levels were also heavily focused on. I found that symptoms such as heavy periods and bloating began to improve very quickly, although it was about 6 weeks before I noticed any difference in the size of my abdomen. I persevered and within 6 months, I was virtually free of my fibroids. A subsequent scan showed that they were still there, but had shrunk so significantly that I no longer had any problems. Fibroids are a condition which respond very well to natural remedies and they are an ideal condition to treat because as they are so rarely life-threatening. It makes complete sense to try out a natural treatment for fibroids before resorting to surgery or any of the hormonal drugs which can cause their own side effects. Overall, most women having surgery for fibroids report regrowth within a year whereas evidence suggests that the vast majority of women who treat their fibroids with natural methods tend to keep regrowth at bay.
