What About Homeopathy
The classical medical approach to fibroids is "wait and see." If the fibroids cause no symptoms they are left alone. If there are symptoms, the doctor may try to shrink the fibroids. If this is not possible, surgery may be suggested. Surgery almost always brings with it the loss of fertility and often the loss of a woman's uterus.
The homeopath's aim in fibroid treatment is to shrink the benign tumors or at least prevent them from growing to a size necessitating surgery. Homeopathic remedies for uterine fibroids will include conium, bursa pestoris, thlapsi, silicea, and nitric acid. Self-treatment for fibroids is inadvisable—it's best to seek the advice of a licensed professional homeopath.
Homeopathic treatment will be tailored to the individual. A homeopath will begin by asking you to make changes in your diet. Such dietary changes will depend on the symptoms you experience.
If your bleeding is heavy, you will be asked to cut out sour or spicy foods while an obese woman will be told to avoid dairy and salty foods. Fibroid patients will also be told to eliminate phytoestrogens like soya-based foods from their diets. The homeopath may order a liver flush or other program of detoxification to help wash out exhausted organs and to rid excess estrogen stores from the body.
A good homeopath will offer these dietary measures before offering any of the 50 homeopathic remedies that exist for treating uterine fibroids. These dietary measures will help lay the ground for the remedies to do their work. The anti-fibroid diet includes the following measures:
*Avoid caffeine, alcohol, soy products, sweet potatoes or yams, foods high in fat, salt, and sugar
*Make sure to eat a lot of fiber, drink as much water as possible, include fresh fruit, fresh leafy greens, and other types of vegetables in your diet. Try to eat fish raised in the wild, seeds, and nuts
These steps eliminate fibroid-encouraging elements while restoring elements that bring a state of good health. Now your body will be ready to react with and respond to such homeopathic remedies as outlined above plus any of the other uterine fibroid homeopathic remedies including: sepia, platinum metallicum, phosphorus, nux vomica, natrum muriaticum, lachesis, calcarea carbonica, and aurum metallicum.
Such homeopathic remedies for the treatment of uterine fibroids will help alleviate symptoms but most important of all, they should help shrink the benign tumors. Any homeopath worth his salt will insist that a woman change her lifestyle to help shrink the fibroids. Homeopaths make the claim that these changes can prevent or even stop the need for surgery cold in its tracks.
