Homeopathy for Fibroids

By admin | November 15, 2011

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous or benign tumors of the uterus. Also referred to as myomas, leiomyomas or fibromyomas; they usually appear in women of childbearing age. They are not linked to a higher likelihood of uterine cancer and in no way become cancerous.  Physicians typically treat the medical condition through medication or even surgery. However, homeopathy for fibroids may be used as a non-invasive form of treatment that utilizes safe and all-natural means.

Of course, homeopathy is not a proven treatment, but I have included information about it on this website as many do swear that it has helped their condition.  I remain to be convinced about this treatment method and feel that at best, it could help offer symptomatic relief to some, but would need to be combined with other more robust methods such as dietary and lifestyle changes.

Homeopathy for fibroids aims to avert the re-growth of the condition. By using natural remedies, it is possible to prevent the development of these growths without the need for surgery. It would also preserve the integrity of the reproductive system and allow the woman to still have children. If surgery is necessary, using homeopathy as a remedy for fibroids can help reduce the size of these growths for them to be removed easily and without complications. There are also homeopathic treatments that claim to allow the uterine fibroids to fall away without the need of surgery. They can also help pull out the “bad” tissue from the body. By using homeopathy, the health of the uterus as well as the entire body can be cleansed without being bothered by post operative effects of surgery. There’s definitely no need to experience the pain of being cut open or the long recuperation period.

Homeopathy for fibroids should, as said previously, include proper diet and nutrition running alongside it. It is important to have a diet that promotes low levels of estrogen since estrogen can fuel the development of uterine fibroids. The diet should include increased consumption of whole grain foods such as brown rice, millet and buckwheat oats; and green vegetables like broccoli, kale and spinach. An inappropriate diet also prevents the body from breaking down and eliminating too much estrogen. It is essential to have a reduced intake of fat to lessen growth of fibroids. Aside from limiting fat, sugary foods and beverage, alcohol, and dairy products should be avoided.

Relaxation techniques which are complementary treatments can also run alongside homeopathic treatment against uterine fibroids, which includes tai chi, Pilates, yoga and massage. They can enhance the amount of blood going to the lower abdominals; thus, making the fibroids smaller. Improved blood supply to the pelvic region is also achieved through sitz baths. It is also recommended to try alternative therapies such as acupuncture to target symptoms of uterine fibroids or help reduce its size.

Aromatherapy massage is another alternative treatment which incorporates relaxation and better blood supply to the womb. An effective massage oil include ingredients such as 10 drops of rose essential oil, 10 drops of ginger oil, ½ teaspoon of vitamin E oil and 2 ounces of almond oil. Blend these oils in a tinted bottle. It can be used when massaging the lower back and the abdominal area.

Homeopathy for fibroids can include the following treatments- If a woman is experiencing heavy menstrual bleeding due to fibroids, they can use Calcarea Carbonica. It can also treat the chills and fatigue brought about by the condition. Pain can be relieved by using the perennial Pulsatilla. On the other hand, Sabina can address lower back pain caused by uterine fibroids. Heavy menstrual bleeding that includes clotting can also be alleviated. Phosphorus can also give out similar effects as Sabina.

Using homeopathy is a slow process.  As I said, I am personally unsure of the true benefits and feel that the effects may be limited if used as a stand alone treatment.  However, if you do want to try homeopathy for fibroids I would consider doing so alongside other alternative methods for treating fibroids.
