Learn whether natural treatments are available and successful in treatment fibroid tumors in woman.
I have fibroids and I don’t want to have any type of procedure done on me. Is it possible for me to take a more natural treatment route?
Physicians are starting to evaluate ways to treat fibroid tumors without surgery. Uterine Fibroid Embolization is one of the leading methods of fibroid removal with out having to “go under the knife”. The procedure is effective, the results are great and best of all – you’re not stuck with a 6 to 8 week recovery! Patients that undergo UAE are often very satisfied with the fact that they have little side effects related to the treatment and they can be back to their daily routine in as little as 5 to 7 days.
However, you stated that you are looking for a ‘natural’ treatment for fibroids. To date, there is no research that supports the idea that natural methods of treatment work to reduce or eradicate fibroids. Yet, several scientific studies are underway to test a new drug treatment that shrinks fibroids. The drug is called Lupron and is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring substance known as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (also called GnRH). Drawbacks of this drug include the fact that is has to be taken regularly and women may have to inject themselves. Furthermore, once treatment stops, the tumors grow back rapidly. At any rate, studies of the drug’s side effects and long-term consequences are still continuing.
