“My periods are heavy and have not stopped. Today is the seventh day.” 
“ I sometimes bleed between periods.”
“ I have a continuous feeling of discomfort in my abdomen with a slight ache sometimes. It feels tight and heavy though I am not pregnant. I also suffer from constipation and weak bladder.”

These signs are not to be ignored. The chances are- these may be cases of uterine fibroids. Most women today, have the fibroid scare once in their life. The sedentary lifestyle, excessive estrogen production, alcohol abuse, obesity or women’s ethnicity are common links to fibroids.


proven holistic system to cure fibroids naturally

Medically known as uterine leiomyomata or myomas , fibroids are tumors of the uterus . These tumors are generally muscle cells and connective tissues feeding on the neighboring cells like parasites. They usually range in size from an inch to more than 8 inches. Fibroids cause feeling of discomfort, pressure, heaviness or even pain when they press on surrounding organs or pelvic region. It may lead to sharp pain in the lower back. It may put pressure on the nerves that rundown to the legs. These intrauterine masses can be risky if they are large and many. The problems increase significantly, especially if the woman is anemic or is planning to have more children in the future. Some fibroid pains are intolerable hence immediate medical attention is warranted.

Studies have shown that more than 70% of women have a tendency to develop fibroids. The symptoms are varied and unpredictable. They strike mostly to the women between 30 to 50 years. So if one has fibroids, is there a cure?

How to cure fibroids? Can they become cancerous?

Good news is Fibroids are non malignant and they don’t develop into cancer. It is curable and the cure is based on its size, shape and location. They are treated according to the severity and type.

Types of Fibroids:

The types of fibroids have been classified according to their location.

  1. Subserosal Myoma – Some fibroids appear under the outer surface of the uterus which are made of non-secretory cells called serous.
  2. Submucosal Myoma – The tumors which grow beneath the mucosal lining of the uterus.
  3. Intramural Myoma – They grow within the thick muscular uterine wall
  4. Pedunculated Myoma – The submucosal and subserosal fibroids are attached to the uterus by stalks.

Uterine fibroids treatments:

  • Wait and Watch Approach – Doctors usually adopt this approach with those who have mild symptoms. If the woman wants to conceive or a woman is near to her menopause, the wait an watch policy is advised if it poses no threat to her well being. One has to adapt to a certain restricted lifestyle. One should do the scans at regular intervals as the uterine tumors can become threatening in the future. The doctor needs to know about its growth rate.
  • Removal by Surgery (Myomectomy) - The second and the most common approach is going under the knife, i.e the actual removal of the fibroids surgically from the uterus. This is known as Myomectomy. This is a better option for women who still want to conceive later in life. The abnormal tissue growth is addressed, and the uterus is left intact, which makes it possible for the patient to conceive and give birth in the future. The major drawback of this treatment is that the fibroids tend to grow back even after they are cut out from the body.
  • Medication – If the tumors are small and cause pain within tolerable limits, the doctor might suggest simple medications to suppress the pain. This may involve the use of birth control pills and hormones. They reduce the estrogen production in the body. Lower estrogen levels shrink the uterus and the fibroids. Administered synthetic GnRH agonists (Gonadotropin releasing hormone agonists) stop the heavy bleeding during menstrual periods among anemic women. The therapy should be continued to prevent myomas from growing back. Women should not conceive during the hormonal therapy.
  • Kill the tumor – These intrauterine tumors are abnormal growth resulting out of the feed provided by the blood vessels. Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a treatment where the tumors are cornered and the blood vessels feeding the nutrients are blocked. When the tumors’ blood supply is cut off, the tumors shrink due to lack of oxygen. This approach starves the myomas so they eventually die. UFE can be considered for women who have the desire to conceive. This should be strictly done under the consultation of an experienced interventional radiologist.
  • Hysterectomy – The last resort is to get rid of the uterus as a whole. For women, who develop fibroids post delivery or women who are nearing menopause, this is the best option. Hysterectomy is nothing but the complete removal of uterus hence conceiving will no longer be possible. Sometimes the anemic patients too are recommended hysterectomy as the fibroids produce higher volume of menstrual blood.


The Best Non Surgical Fibroid Treatment:

Focused Ultrasound -

Focused ultrasound is a combination of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves. HIFU and MRI produce a 3D imaging of the fibroids. It is real-time and gives information about the temperature and tissue changes as each fibroid is treated. High intensity sound waves and focused heating strike the cells with great precision eventually killing them.

Focused ultrasound is a great option for non-surgical procedure which enables women to return to their normal life in a matter of only two days.
There are many alternative ways to cure or shrink fibroids naturally by using herbs.
