The very nature of fibroids means that conventional treatments, such as surgery, often leave a lot to be desired. Doctors even advocate a “wait and see approach” as they are aware that fibroids will naturally shrink around the time of the menopause. The reason for these seemingly unsatisfactory options is because it is very difficult to establish the root cause in an individual and unless you are able to eliminate this, fibroids are likely to regrow even following surgery.
Many women then research their options and some would like to try a natural home remedy for fibroids. However, there are so many ad-hoc remedies out there on the internet that it becomes difficult to establish just what will work and which advice is, quite frankly, useless.
The only way to deal with fibroids properly is to eliminate the root causes. It is only by doing this that you can be sure of living a fibroid-free life. However, this is easier said than done as it is almost impossible to identify the exact causes. Fibroids form due to a number of causes which subtly interact within a woman’s body. Although it is believed that the common link is estrogen and hormonal imbalances, not all women with high estrogen levels will have fibroids and so there is more to it than that. Other factors which can contribute to fibroid growth include your diet, weight, exercise levels, hereditary factors, race, lifestyle and intake of environmental toxins.
Assuming that it is largely difficult to establish the exact causes, a worthwhile natural home remedy for fibroids will be one which uses a holistic or “whole body” approach which systematically treats and eliminates all possible causes of fibroids. It is only by using such an approach that you can be sure of a cure.
A good home remedy for fibroids will include the following elements
* Herbal liver cleansing
* Adequate hydration-drinking 2 liters of filtered water a day
* Symptomatic relief
* Removal of pesticides and environmental toxins from your diet and surroundings
* Adequate exercise
* Overhaul of the diet to include all organic produce
* Stress reduction
* Estrogen management
As you can see, this type of treatment is very involved and will only work for someone with motivation who is willing to take charge of their own treatment. You will need to be highly involved on a daily basis, monitoring just what you eat, the exercise you take and there is no doctor or other person who can do this other than you yourself.
For women who are willing to see through such a regime, the rewards can be enormous and if you think about it in terms of how long preparation for surgery and the subsequent recovery time would take, it puts it into perspective and most find it is preferable to use a natural home remedy for fibroids other than the alternative.
