For women suffering from this condition, a natural treatment for fibroids sounds like the ideal solution. However, there is very little information in the public domain which teaches us how to shrink fibroids naturally.
There are a handful of alternative practitioners who specialize in teaching women methods which will shrink fibroids over time and indeed, thousands of women worldwide have seen much success in this respect. However, these practitioners are very often in high demand and have long waiting lists and are, as a consequence, very expensive.
Many believe that the very fact that fibroids are rarely dangerous leads doctors to treat them with less importance than other conditions which may be life-threatening. This may be why it is often recommended that women do nothing at all about their fibroids and that they should simply put up with the symptoms until the menopause, when they are likely to shrink naturally. Now this is all well and good if you are nearing the menopause and your symptoms are not severe. For many women though, the reality is very different with years stretching ahead filled with symptoms such as heavy bleeding, pain during intercourse, bowel and bladder problems, bloating and indigestion.
The terrible symptoms caused by fibroids often leads women to take the surgical options which are offered as a last resort. These may include the removal of individual fibroids, the injection of particles into the arteries supplying the fibroids to stop their blood supply, or the removal of the uterine lining. In severe cases, a hysterectomy might be offered. It is vital that you recognize that with the exception of a hysterectomy, the fibroids are likely to regrow following the other forms of treatment as nothing has been done to remove the causes, which will still exist after surgery.
Natural treatment for fibroids approaches the situation in a completely different way. Rather than removing the fibroids, it takes into account what has caused them in the first place and eliminates this, thus ensuring that existing fibroids have had their growth medium removed and that new ones will not start. However, if you think this sounds simplistic, then it does. The causes of fibroids are rarely down to one factor and their growth is often sparked by the subtle interaction of a number of factors which happen to be present.
This means that to shrink fibroids naturally, you are required to be proactive in your own treatment and you may have to make various lifestyle and dietary changes.
One of the main factors involved in fibroids growth is the presence of an excess of estrogen in the body. Estrogen acts as a type of “fuel” for fibroids and although other conditions and factors undoubtedly play a part, this is usually the underlying factor in most cases. A good starting point is usually to look at what steps you can take to reduce your estrogen levels. As estrogen is both stored in and manufactured by fat cells, some women find that losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight in the future can prevent further fibroid growth and, in some cases, help them shrink a little.
For others, the estrogen problem could be a little more complicated. Estrogen mimicking compounds are often stored in the liver and can be notoriously difficult to eliminate. These often come from pesticides and environmental pollutants. One natural treatment for fibroids is to follow a good liver detox plan, often involving the use of liver-cleansing herbs. Once this is done, it is important to limit your consumption of non-organic foods and processed meats, both of which can contribute to this problem.
The lack of real help for women with fibroids led Shola Oslo, an alternative practitioner who specializes in teaching women how to use a natural treatment for fibroids, to develop a complete 7 step system which is completely guaranteed. Her busy clinic left her unable to take on many additional patients but the demand was clearly there. As a result, she has now helped thousands of women worldwide who she has never met. Please bear in mind though, this requires you to be proactive and take charge of your own healing by making dietary and lifestyle changes and following a systematic program-it is not suitable for women who simply want to take a tablet and be cured.
