Uterine Fibroids

The cause of uterine fibroids remains poorly understood, but the growth of them may be stimulated by estrogen. The majority of the times, fibroids do not cause pelvic pain, however, if you have chronic pelvic pain fibroids could be the cause. When it comes to shrinking fibroids through natural means, treatments can only significantly shrink a small minority of cases. Even though diet changes alone are unlikely to shrink fibroids, good dietary habits are still important. Eating a diet high in complex carbohydrates and low in saturated fats, alcohol, sugar, or other foods that interfere with the liver’s role in metabolizing hormones can be beneficial. Sometimes homeopathy can help reduce fibroid growth, but it’s important to get regular ultrasounds to monitor the size of fibroids.
