If you are ready to take charge of your health or work hand in hand with your doctor, this website discusses many approaches to treating fibroids naturally.
Before embarking on any natural remedy journey described on this website, do discuss it first with your doctor. It is also important to remember that while a remedy may work for one, it may not necessarily work for you. A lot of trial and error may be required to find the most effective natural treatment that you seek.
Also keep in mind that you may need to implement various rememdies at the same time and may have to use them sometimes in conjunction with conventional treatments.
What are Uterine Fibroids?
The medical term for uterine fibroids is leiomyomata. They are also known by other names such as fibromylomas or myomas.These are benign (non-cancerous) tumors that are solid growths comprising of smooth muscle fibers as well as connective tissue that grow within the walls of the uterus. They can also grow out from the uterus. They can also appear on the cervix but these are very rare cases. The size of uterine fibroids can vary from being no more than the size of a pea to being as large or larger than a basketball.
Some information about fibroids
1. Between 25% to 40% of women over the age of 30 report having fibroid tumors.
2. The number one health issue reported when hysterectomies are performed is due to the presence of fibroids.
3. More black women are affected by fibroids than any other race of women.
Causes of Fibroid Tumors
The causes of fibroids remain unknown. Doctors and many other health practitioners do believe that the female hormone estrogen stimulates fibroid growth. This belief is supported by the lack of these tumors before puberty as well as the reduction in these tumors after menopause when estrogen levels are at an all time low.
Symptoms of Uterine Fibroids
Unless you are one of the lucky women who does not experience any symptoms, many women with these tumors report many bothersome symptoms. If you have no symptoms, the growths are usually detected during normal physical exams.
See Uterine Fibroids Symptoms for further discussion of symptoms
1. A physical exam is usually the first step.
2. Another procedure known as curettage may be performed and it involves scraping the uterine walls.
3. An endometrial biopsy may be performed which is the removal of some tissue from the uterine lining usually to test for cancerous properties.
4. X rays and ultrasounds may be implemented in order to determine the size, location as well as the nature of the fibroid tumor.

2. Fibroid Natural Treatment
Various holistic practitioners generally view the development of fibroid tumors as the body’s defense against the various toxins in the body resulting from making poor lifestyle choices as well as toxins in the environment which the body is unable to eliminate through its various elimination organs.
This is why the holistic approach to fibroid treatment seeks to not only fight uterine fibroids symptoms but also get to the root of the problem to prevent recurrence.

The holistic approach requires that YOU be responsible for your health. This does not mean disregarding your doctor’s advice. This means working hand in hand with your doctor as well as performing your own independent research as your doctor may not be aware of the latest treatment methods. You need to perform your own independent research into various treatment both natural and conventional so that you can make informed decisions about your course of action. Only YOU are ultimately responsible for your health.
The mind, body and spirit focus of holistic treatment methods seeks to make you ultimately responsible for whether you dwell in health or whether you continue to suffer from one illness after another because you choose to give up your power to another. Giving up your power to others will in many cases ensure that you undergo treatment that may not ultimately be in your best interests such as a hysterectomy.
