Many people turn to homeopathic treatment as a possible alternative to surgery. There are approximately 90 possibilities used alone or in combination to treat fibroid tumors of the uterus. It’s important to meet with a homeopathic specialist to determine what is best in your situation. Ask around and find a specialist and treatment you are comfortable with, homeopathic treatment can be a long process but overall might be the best option for you.
It’s easy to do when you are dealing with health issues. For a woman, that is especially true when it comes to reproduction and the organs involved. It’s a sensitive subject. Fibroid tumors are hard, benign structures that form, usually on the uterine wall. There are no proven theories as to why they develop.
One approach to treating your condition is through diet. Estrogen stimulates tumor growth, so you should alter your diet to reduce your exposure to foods containing estrogen and those that stimulate estrogen production. For instance, eat fresh wild fish as opposed to farm-raised fish that may have been fed hormone supplements. The same is true for dairy products; non-organic may have increased levels of hormones. Increase the level of purified water you drink to ensure proper hydration. At the same time, reduce your intake of caffeine. Maintaining a healthy low-fat, high-fiber diet reduces the estrogen production that feeds the tumor.
The use of proteolytic enzymes as dietary supplements has been shown to reduce tumor size. However, there are some potential side effects to this type of treatment. Supplements containing enzymes such as protease, serrapeptase, papain, bromelain and amylase combined with a fat-digesting enzyme such as lipase, while effective in reducing tumor size, might produce flu-like symptoms in some women. They also can increase bleeding in people with certain disorders. It is important to consult a physician to determine if this method is safe for you.
Homeopathic remedies are determined based on several factors, including the location and size of your fibroid tumor and the type of symptoms you are experiencing. Remedies for controlling excessive menstrual flow might include Caulophyllum, Lachesis, Lavender and Kali Phosphoricum. You should inform your physician of herbal supplements you are taking so he can monitor you to ensure that you don’t become anemic and so he can avoid prescribing anything that might have a negative interaction with your homeopathic remedy.
Remedies that are known to reduce tumor size and slow tumor growth include Aurum Metallicum, Calcarea Carbonica, Lachesis, Natrum Muriaticum and Nux Vomica. Research has shown that some women treated with homeopathic remedies will show improvement within one or two months.
