Fibroids are most often difficult to detect because it does not produce any symptoms. In the absence of visible fibroid symptoms women remain unaware of this condition for long time. In fact, when the fibroid tumors are small in size it is easier to shrink them. However, only when the tumors increase in size the symptoms start showing up. Uterine fibroid treatment becomes difficult as the tumors increase in size.
The major symptoms of fibroids are excessive menstrual bleeding, heavy periods and pelvic pain. Bladder problems can also be associated with fibroids. In this article I am going to share some natural methods of shrinking fibroids.
With the onset of menopause in many women fibroids automatically reduce or completely disappear. This is because the body stops producing estrogen during menopause, thereby eliminating the trigger which boosts the growth of fibroids.
Natural remedies used in treatment for uterine fibroids will not get rid of existing fibroids completely. These remedies will however prevent new fibroids from growing and shrink the size of existing fibroids. Here are some things you can do to shrink fibroids naturally:
Most natural remedies including natural treatment for uterine fibroids concentrate a lot on our diet. A poor diet elevates estrogen levels in the body and prevents the body from breaking down and eliminating excess estrogen. Hence merely by watching what you eat you should be able to control fibroids growth.
The liver is the main organ in our body responsible for breaking down hormones. If liver is overloaded due to increased intake of undesirable foods like coffee and alcohol, its estrogen metabolizing function will be affected. By avoiding saturated fats found in meats and dairy products, alcohol and excess sugar, you will be lowering the burden on your liver. It will be able to process excess estrogen and expel it from the body.
You must also try to include foods containing phytoestrogens, a natural source of weak estrogen. This helps to protect the body from the effects of excess estrogen. Whole grains, including brown rice, buckwheat, oats and millet, foods rich in essential fatty acids, such as fish, nuts and flax seeds, soy, fruits and vegetables and non-dairy milk products provide critical nutrition and help shrink to fibroids.
Exercise reduces stress and relieves fibroid symptoms. Exercise is also useful to ensure that you maintain your ideal body weight. Research has found that women who are obese and overweight stand a greater chance of developing fibroids. Hence it is important to maintain a healthy body weight. As a general health rule and specifically during treatment for uterine fibroids ensure that you engage in moderate exercise like brisk walking for 30-45 minutes each day.
These simple natural measures are very effective in uterine fibroid treatment. Natural remedies used in treatment for uterine fibroids do not produce any side effects and are beneficial in the long run. I got rid of my fibroids with the help of a natural 7 step plan developed by a renowned herbalist. This plan has helped thousands of women overcome fibroids naturally without any side effects.
