Holistic Treatment For Fibroids

With conventional medication having very little to offer for women with fibroids, you may be seriously considering your alternatives. Holistic treatment for fibroids is certainly worth of serious consideration and may be your best option if you are wanting to not only shrink your fibroids but keep them away for good.

Many doctors advocate leaving fibroids well alone as they will naturally shrink during the menopause and the very nature of how and why fibroids form means that conventional medication can only treat the symptoms and not the causes. So, although you could consider surgery to remove or shrink fibroids, they will regrow in time as the root cause has not been addressed.

Doing nothing is all very well if your symptoms are mild or you are close to the menopause. However, this is not an option for an otherwise healthy woman who may have unbearable fibroid symptoms or be years away from the menopause.

Why Does Holistic Treatment For Fibroids Work?

Holistic treatment addresses every part of the individual, not just the physical aspects of a condition. It is not intended to be a “quick-fix”, but takes into account lifestyle, diet, emotional health and mental and physical wellness. It is well known that fibroids form due to the subtle interaction of a number of factors within the body and lifestyle and emotional well-being (or lack of it) can also play a part. It is never possible to isolate the exact causes of fibroids in an individual and because of this, the only surefire way to ensure that fibroids are successfully treated it to use an all-encompassing approach which systematically deals with every possible cause of fibroids-ie a holistic approach. Put simply, it works because it leaves “no stone unturned”.

Nothing is left to chance, and if followed correctly, with the right attitude a holistic treatment for fibroids will work for over 85% of women.

What Types Of Treatment Might Be Involved?

With general holistic treatment, the following elements might be included:

* Diet

* Exercise

* Massage

* Herbal remedies

* Naturopathic medicine

* Chinese medicine

* Relaxation techniques

* Chinese medicine

* Acupuncture

* Bodywork

With regard to fibroids, one of the most important element is your diet. It is known that certain foods contain or produce toxins which accumulate in the liver and mimic the action of estrogen, which, in turn, can fuel fibroid growth. Avoiding processed meats and non-organic produce is a good start. In addition, drinking plenty of water can help flush out toxins. Maintaining a healthy weight is also important. Herbal remedies can also be very useful, and herbs such as Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root and Chamomile often featuring.

If you decide to try this type of treatment, you must be prepared to make the necessary lifestyle and dietary changes as just using individual elements in isolation will have very limited benefit.
