PERHAPS you’ve been told the medical definition of a fibroid tumor, and more than likely you've been told no one knows the cause, except that it's hereditary.  Because of this, even the most popular medical treatment options never address the root cause. They only cut out or drug out the problem.

Well, the naturopathic definition and solutions are quite different, because it comes from a holistic approach.

I promise that by the end of this blog you’ll understand the true underlying cause of fibroid tumors and how you can make simple changes to begin the healing process, without the need of surgery or drugs.

Most women are told by their gynecologist that either surgery or drugs are the only option to resolve the issue… and unnecessarily most of us take that option because we just want the pain or bleeding to stop NOW.  The problem is surgery and drugs don’t get to the root of the problem!  By not getting to the root cause of the problem opens up the chance of the fibroid coming back, other side effects, and not to mention cost and recovery time after surgery, if used.  The good news is that you have alternative choices I will share later!!

So let’s look at what the medical (allopathic) profession vs the holistic (naturopathic) profession says a fibroid tumor is:

Medical definition

Fibroid tumors are composed of "renegade" muscle cells that come together to form a fibrous "knot" or "mass"; OR normal uterine muscle cells, growing in abnormal, disorganized clumps . All growing within various areas of the uterus. 

Medical treatment options:

Most popular medical treatment options include, hysterectomy (full or partial), myomectomy, prescribed drugs, or uterine fibroid embolization,

Oh.. there's one more option:

Leave it alone…watch and see!!!

Side Effects of Medical options for treatment

Hysterectomy: bladder and sexual dysfunction, or instant menopause. Scar tissue can develop and grow leading to a distended abdomen.

Myomectomy: scar tissue can develop and grow, which my later may interfere with fertility. New fibroids can develop.

Prescribed hormone therapy (eg. Lupron): Though this treatment does shrink tumors or lighten bleeding, it can be unsafe to use for longer than nine months. Fibroids generally return after ceasing treatment.

Uterine Fibroid Embolization: obstetric complications are high, including a higher rate of preterm labor. "If you are going to do a good job of blocking blood flow to the fibroid, then you are also blocking blood flow to the uterus, and that causes difficulties during pregnancy,"  Ernst Bartsich, MD, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center in New York.  

MRI Ultrasound: Risks include potential damage to other organs and the presence of "dead" fibroid tissue, which may interfere with fertility.

Please note:! If you are in a dire situation by all means have surgery or adhere to your medical doctor's advice For instance I had a client who had very heavy bleeding, weakness, and pain for some time.  Her biggest relief came when she had a blood transfusion.  I told her she can’t keep doing that the rest of her life.  She tried a couple of my suggestions periodically, but since she wasn’t able to do more of what I recommended, I suggested she have the surgery.  But the good news was that her recovery time was shortened, and now she has the tools to alleviate any post-surgery problems. Give thanks!

Naturopathic definition

Fibroid tumors are crystallized mucus and/or cellular waste that have hardened. Yep, that's it! So, where does the mucus and cellular waste come from? Basically, toxic foods, toxic personal care items, and most importantly holding on to negative emotional baggage (anger, resentment, fear, worry, depression, etc) and/or tragic life events (abortions, divorce, sexual/emotional abuse, rape, death of close relative, etc).

Naturopathic treatment options

Ahhh… the beauty and simplicity is that there are a variety of options that get to the root causes defined in the above paragraph by using a holistic approach (balancing health in the body, mind, and spirit).  I will touch on these areas such as nutrition, herbs, meditation, essential oils, body movements, negative emotional release, journaling, etc  in future blog posts, but for a sneak peak get my free report on Womb Wellness ( <- click there) or just send me an email with your concerns and I will respond within 48 hours.
