Fibroids natural treatment methods require that you to take a proactive approach to creating a tumor free environment in your body. It is not about popping a pill or having surgery to remove the tumors that may grow back in the future. It is about being aware of your habits, lifestyle, foods, etc. One of the natural methods for uterine fibroids treatment is with the use of herbs.
The use of herbs goes back to the beginning of time before the advent of pharmaceuticals. Though pharmaceuticals may have pushed herbology to the side, many natural health practitioners continue to believe in the healing power of various plants and herbs many of which come without the side effects that are associated with various pharmaceuticals.
There are various herbs that can balance hormones which is important for uterine fibroids management. Some herbs may be able to shrink the tumors while others can help with heavy bleeding. Other herbs can help to improve the liver’s detoxification process by helping it break down and eliminate excess estrogen which is thought to be at the root of fibroid tumor development.
If you do decide to use herbs, you may want to consult a herbalist as it is common for a combination of herbs to be used to treat conditions including fibroids and he or she can create the herbs you would need to treat your condition.

Fibroids natural treatment using herbs can be administered through teas, capsules, tinctures (fluid extracts), tablets and decoctation (tea made from roots, barks, branches and some berries). You can certainly brew the herbs yourself.
If you fancy yourself a herbalist (which can be fun, educational and puts you in more control) and you pick the herbs you want to use, make sure that you use them immediately.
You can also buy dried herbs or dry them yourself using a tightly sealed ceramic or glass container which will help to preserve the freshness of the herbs. Discard dried herbs after one year unless they are roots, some berries or bark which will generally last longer than leaves.
Only use organic ingredients and if using water, make sure that it is pure water. Only use glass, stainless steel or enamel pots and pans. Avoid aluminum pots and pans as aluminum may seep into the herbal preparation.
Exercise caution if pregnant or breast-feeding although some herbs such as garlic may help with breastfeeding. Talk to your doctor before using any herbs if you are pregnant even though many herbs are generally safe.
