For women suffering from the symptoms of fibroids, it can very often seem like there is no end in sight. Treatment options offered by doctors are usually unsatisfactory, and women are often told to ‘live with them’ until the menopause when fibroids will naturally shrink, largely due to a reduction in estrogen.
Although many women will look for a natural cure for fibroids, actually discovering something that will work is not always easy. Many promising-looking treatments are offered, particularly on the internet, but realistically, there is no simple, magic cure for shrinking fibroids so beware of remedies which offer quick-fixes.
The most important tool you can arm yourself with when looking for a natural cure for fibroids is motivation. To understand what I mean by this it is important to look at what causes fibroids, or at least what we know about the causes and here is the key!
So What Does Cause Fibroids?
Doctors are somewhat undecided as to what exactly causes fibroids, and very often, it is impossible to determine exactly what has caused fibroids in individual cases. It is well-known that high estrogen levels are often a factor. However, that’s not the end of the story. Although high estrogen makes a woman more likely to have fibroids, there are some women with sky-high estrogen levels who do not have fibroids and conversely, some women with low levels who do. Looking at other factors, it is known that race, hereditary factors, diet, environment, and toxins can all have an impact on fibroid growth. It is therefore believed that fibroids form due to the subtle interaction of some different factors which all just happen to coincide in a woman’s body at a certain time, thus sparking off fibroid growth.
What Does This Mean-Is There Nothing We Can Do?
Firstly, don’t be despondent. Although it is not possible to determine the exact cause, knowing all the likely causes gives us a great starting point when it comes to looking at a natural cure for fibroids. When I said earlier that motivation was your most important tool, I meant it.
To be successful in shrinking fibroids naturally, you need to systematically eliminate all the possible causes of fibroids, even those who may not apply in your case. However, the crux of the matter is that you will never know exactly what has caused your fibroids so you need to use a multifaceted approach which ensures that you have taken care of everything which could have impacted on your body to cause your fibroids.
This All Sounds A Bit Much!
It’s nothing like as bad as it sounds! Fortunately, many of the things which could have caused your fibroids are undesirable elements in your life anyway, including an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, toxin build up in the liver and weight gain to name but a few. Indeed, many women who carefully and methodically follow a plan which guarantees a natural cure for fibroids find that they are healthier and feel better than ever before.
Here’s Where The Motivation Comes In!
You will need to be made fairly significant lifestyle changes to ensure good results. However, if you are prepared to do this, success is very likely to follow. I guess if you are the type of person who likes ‘quick fixes’ and to simply take a pill and is cured, shrinking fibroids naturally is not for you.
However, if you like to take charge of your healing and are willing to put in the effort, you have every chance of succeeding. You need to ask yourself if you are willing to put up with this condition until the menopause, or would you rather undergo risky surgery which has no guarantee of long-term success. Alternatively, are you going to put in some effort and see symptomatic relief within a month or so and longer term shrinkage beginning after a few weeks?
