Alternative medicine for fibroids has been used by herbalists for many centuries of years and like alternative treatments for all manner of conditions, is enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Until recently, doctors were all too quick to perform a hysterectomy to get rid of fibroids but it is in now realized that this is very rarely the best treatment and can have side effects which are as bad as, if not worse, that the fibroids themselves.
Other surgical treatments for fibroids are rarely successful. Removing the individual fibroids is all well and good if you can stop new ones growing. Unfortunately, once doctors have performed the surgery, women are very rarely given any advice which will help them prevent regrowth.
Alternative medicine for fibroids typically consist of herbal preparations which can be taken which are widely believed to be beneficial for shrinking fibroids. With some medical conditions, it would not necessarily be advisable to try alternative treatment methods as delaying conventional medicine could prove dangerous. As fibroids are very rare life-threatening, once you have received a diagnosis, trying alternative treatments is most certainly worthwhile as it has been proven that fibroids respond very well to natural treatments.
If left untreated, fibroid symptoms will very rarely disappear and will persist until the menopause. The symptoms will usually become more severe as the fibroids typically increase in size and it is sensible to treat the fibroids before they become so large that they are causing unbearable symptoms. Having said this, natural treatments can be successfully used to shrink even large fibroids.
When looking at herbal remedies which can be used to treat fibroids naturally, it is important that you take into account your own individual circumstances as treatments often consist of multiple ingredients which as combined to make the best treatment for you. For example, if you carry excess weight and you have excess estrogen because of this, you may require a different combination of ingredients to someone who has an inflammatory condition which is believed to aggravate fibroids.
