There are a number of different natural home remedies for fibroids in the uterus, some of which are aimed at bringing a little symptomatic relief whereas others are geared towards encouraging shrinkage. A large proportion of women will have fibroids, but for most no treatment is necessary. For others though, intolerable symptoms such as extreme bloating, urinary problems, pain and discomfort can lead to many women seeking some form of treatment.
Although it is impossible to accurately determine the causes of fibroids in an individual woman, they are linked to a number of scenarios, including poor gastrointestinal health, inflammation of the gut, estrogen excess, being overweight and insulin resistance, amongst others.
Natural home remedies for fibroids include avoiding known aggravators, such as caffeine, conventional dairy produce, non-organic produce which has been grown with the use of pesticides, alcohol, refined sugar, white carbohydrates and transfats. In addition, liver detoxification is often recommended as this can help to eliminate estrogen mimicking substances (xenoestrogens) which become “locked” in the liver and difficult to excrete.
Taking regular exercise can have a double benefit. It can help with excess weight and can often reduce stress levels, both of which can aggravate fibroids. It will also improve the circulation around the pelvic area which in turn will relieve congestion. The endorphins produced can also help to alleviate the pain often caused by fibroids.
Many women find that heat therapy and abdominal massage are simple natural home remedies for fibroids. A warm, soothing bath followed by a heat pad on the abdomen can be extremely helpful when coupled with gentle, circular massage.
