Yes, there certainly arenatural remedies for fibroids treatment, although of course there are no guarantees. The medical profession almost always reaches for the prescription pad first, so there’s no harm in trying something less toxic before using drugs. Some of these natural remedies just might:
1. Slow fibroid growth …
2. Reduce or even eliminate the bleeding that often comes with ovarian fibroids …
3. Might reduce their size …
Fibroids And Women
Fibroids are tumors but they’re not cancerous. They’re more common in women, especially those of childbearing age. About half of black women have fibroids and about one quarter of white women also have them. For many, they’re not even noticeable but with some women they’re so huge that the woman appears to be pregnant. In more severe case, they’re painful, cause miserable periods and are a source of bleeding.
Fibroids have some pretty rotten consequences, too, like causing pregnancy problems or even infertility; miscarriages; pain; incontinence; and painful sex.
One of the suspected causes of fibroids is hormonal imbalance of some sort although the role of genetics is up for debate as well.
Treatment Of Fibroids: Mainstream Medicine
According to standard medical practice, if drugs don’t eliminate the miserable things then surgery is next on the program. In the ‘old days’ – a couple of decades ago – a hysterectomy was the standard answer which was a very unwelcome option for younger women. Now the standard treatment is a ‘myomectomy’ which can be successful, depending on the number and size of the fibroids. And a myomectomy doesn’t prevent pregnancy.
Treatment Of Fibroids: Possible Natural Remedies
1. Blackstrap Molasses
Blackstrap molasses isn’t the normal molasses that is so available in a grocery. Delicious though it is, “normal” molassses is usually it’s nothing but sugar syrup with some brown coloring, whether from natural or artificial sources. Honestly, blackstrap molasses tastes pretty bad. However, I’d be willing to force it down rather than be cut on. If you wish to try this natural remedy, three times each day swallow one tablespoon.
2. Herbal Remedies
One herb that is famous for managing pre-menstrual syndrome is agnus castus, pictured above. Another popular herb is yarrow, an astringent plant that is often used for headaches and hemorrhoids [ouch!].
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar, like blackstrap molasses, is NOT the pale stuff found in the grocery. Real apple cider vinegar offers a ton of benefits to anyone swallowing it. Although I personally find it too acidic to be comfortable, many swear by it and it’s often used as a weight loss aid. In this instance, take a tablespoon, three times daily, and it might shrink your fibroids. It has often been credited with reducing discomfort.
As with all health issues, whether natural remedies or not, monitor your fibroids treatment by recording what you do, how often and your results. Unless there is a danger or current crisis, it’s always best to try natural methods first. You can always move to drugs and surgery if you’re unsuccessful.
