How To Get Rid Of Fibroids Naturally
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When you search for information on how to get rid of fibroids naturally, you are most likely to come across an array of rather confusing information rather than a step by step guide, which is probably what you were hoping for!   The truth is that the whole subject of fibroids is a pretty confusing topic and there are so many different strategies when it comes to using natural treatment.

The problem really stems from the fact that if you were to ask a doctor what has caused your fibroids to grow, she would probably not be able to give you a definitive answer.  The reason for this is because there are a number of factors which cause fibroids to grow and what triggeres growth in one woman is not necessarily the same in another. 

The range of likely influential factors include:-

  • Being overweight
  • Insulin resistance
  • Estrogen overload
  • Build up of environmental toxins in the liver
  • Eating a poor diet
  • Lack of exercise
  • Genetic and race factors
  • Not having children
  • Age

Because of the range possible reasons why you might have fibroids, treatment can be difficult.  Conventional treatment to get rid of fibroids might include surgery or hormone-blocking treatment.  The problem with these is that they are treating the symptoms rather than the causes of fibroids and this often means that fibroids will grow back a few months down the line.  This is the major reason why doctors often recommend simply monitoring your fibroids and only taking action if the symptoms are unbearable.

Taking a logical approach, when you look at the reasons above why you might have fibroids, you might be able to envisage how to get rid of fibroids naturally.  By reversing, or undoing the causal factors, it is possible to enable significant shrinkage.

This does mean that you will need to be prepared to work at it though!   A really good starting point is to change your diet.  By taking a good hard look at not only the foods you eat, but their quality and how you prepare them, you are on your way to a natural solution.

Your foods should be organic, as pesticides can contain estrogen-mimicking compounds which then become stored within the body, feeding and maintaining fibroid growth.  You should aim to avoid all processed foods and those which contain artificial additives.  We all know that fresh fruits and vegetables are healthy and eating 5-7 portions daily is the way to go.

On the subject of meat, then small quantities of white meats such as chicken and fish are fine, with red meat being best avoided.  Beans, nuts and seeds are healthy choices and drinking plenty of filtered water can help to keep the internal organs healthy and hydrated.

To avoid overloading the liver, which is important for the elimination of toxins, your portion size should be moderate.  Don't be tempted to eat too-large quantities of even healthy foods as this causes the digestive system to become overloaded. This should also help in terms of weight management which is an important aspect of natural fibroid treatment.  Weight loss will also result in a lowering of estrogen levels as fat cells are a secondary storage and manufacturing site of this hormone.

For those wanting to know how to get rid of fibroids naturally, taking regular exercise is also very important.  Not only will this improve your overall health, (and, of course, weight loss)  but it will increase blood circulation around the uterus, preventing uterine congestion which is believed to be a factor in fibroids.
