There are ways of shrinking uterine fibroids naturally that are very basic. Some ways are so easy to implement, you can get started on them straight away and see beneficial results. Other ways may include seeking out a specialist modality of health care.
What Are Uterine Fibroids?
Uterine fibroids are abnormal growths which develop on or in the womb or uterus. They can become large, which often results in abdominal pain. They can lead to heavy periods. Sometimes, no pain or discomfort is felt at all.
Fibroids are common, although most women don’t experience any discomfort. The growths are benign.
Other names include fibromas, myomas and leiomyomas. They also can be named according to their location. The most common is the intramural fibroids which grow within the wall of the uterus. Pedunculated fibroids have a stem which anchor the fibroid within the uterus. Subserosal fibroids grow on the outside wall of the uterus. Submucosal fibroids grow within the middle muscle of the inner wall of the uterus.
Common Symptoms Of Uterine Fibroids
Although it is common not to experience any of the following symptoms, they can offer you a guide:
- heavy menstrual bleeding
- periods which last longer than a week
- spotting or bleeding between periods
- bad menstrual cramping especially in the lower abdomen or back
- the abdomen is large and feels full
- pain during intercourse
- frequent urination or difficulty in emptying the bladder
- anaemia which often leads to fatigue
- pregnancy complications, including miscarriage
What Causes Uterine Fibroids?
Whilst medicine fail to recognise most causes of poor health, it is becoming increasingly obvious to holistic practitioners that diet has a large part to play in health. Not only is the typical western diet unhealthy with all the fast/junk and convenience food, it is high in hormones.
Whenever you have a hormonal related health issue, the first thing that you should do is to examine your diet for hormones.
Animals who are grown for human consumption are rich not only in naturally occurring hormones. They are also rich in synthetic hormones.
For example, dairy is rich in the hormones needed to grow healthy baby cows. All milk, and so all dairy, contains this natural hormone. It may be natural, but it is intended for baby cows, not adults humans.
The cow is also pregnant again to ensure when her milk runs out after 9 months or so, she will shortly be in lactation once more. Every pregnant woman understands her hormones can be out of natural balance. So now we have two natural hormones found in all dairy foods.
However, it doesn’t end there. Farmers have been encouraged to use synthetic hormones to increase the yield.
Three different hormones lacing the dairy you consume. You don’t have to be very intelligent to join the dots.
Natural Ways To Shrink Fibroids Naturally
Shrinking uterine fibroids naturally starts with eliminating all dairy from your diet. Try it for a month and see how you feel.
But your hormone ingestion isn’t limited to dairy. Farming practices, especially within factory farms, rely on hormones to help the animals grow faster for a quicker return on profit.
Certainly certified organically grown animals will be healthier and have only the normal level of hormones. However, is meat consumption the optimal diet for humans? When you look at our teeth, they resemble horses (herbivores) teeth more than cats (carnivores) teeth.
The largely unsubstantiated claims of the meat and dairy industries has perpetuated a false belief in human needs for calcium in milk and protein in meat. However, both calcium and protein, as well as all the other important nutrients we need, are found in abundance in fruit and vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables.
These myths have lead to many illnesses and women have been the brunt of many, with their delicate hormonal expression.
Changing the diet to a healthy whole food plant based diet will help, and often fully shrink, every woman’s uterine fibroids, whether they cause symptoms or not. For some women, an additional course of action may be necessary. Good homeopathic treatment offers you the easiest and least invasive way for shrinking uterine fibroids naturally.
