Treatment Options For Fibroids

You may have been diagnosed and wondering what your treatment options are for fibroids. Most often, you will hear the term "watch out" that is pronounced by a doctor, which basically means to do nothing. This is because fibroids naturally shrink during menopause. However, for many women, there are times when their fibroids cause severe problems that affect their quality of life and, to be fair, they need relief!

"Waiting attentively" is best if your symptoms are mild or if you are almost menopausal. If both are not used, you cannot expect to live a life damaged by fibroid symptoms.

The treatment options for fibroids broadly can be divided into two categories — conventional and natural.

There is a school of thought that conventional medicine focuses on treating symptoms from a variety of conditions rather than being the root cause and eliminating it altogether. As far as fibroids are concerned, this seems to be applied, with an emphasis on treating all the organs individually. On the contrary, natural treatments tend to focus on the body as a "whole" united, acknowledging that the body must be restored to a balanced state for healing to occur.

Conventional treatment

This includes surgery and / or drug treatment. Drug treatment can often take birth control pills or anti-androgen pills. Metformin is sometimes prescribed, which improves insulin performance. Anti-inflammatory drugs are also sometimes prescribed to help relieve pain. There is also a group of drugs called GnRH (Gonadotrophin Releasing Hormones). This will help to shrink the fibroids dramatically, but is only suitable for short-term use, due to side effects and is usually only used before surgery. Another treatment option for fibroids is IUD, or Coil. This will help reduce heavy bleeding.

Of course, most medicines have some side effects, and this is especially true for those who may be prescribed for fibroids.

Surgery is another treatment option for fibroids.

A Myectomy will remove individual fibroids or fibroids. Depending on the size and location of your fibroids, this can be done either through abdominal or vaginal slices. Another method is to prevent blood supply to fibroids by injecting vessels with plastic "beads", the theory being that fibroids will be reduced and dried. A procedure called "Abdominal Endometrial" can also be used where heat is put into the uterus. This effectively removes the lining of the uterus and is not suitable for women who may want to have children.

Finally, in severe cases, hysterectomy may be recommended. This major surgery and loss of uterus can have both profound physical and mental side effects. Then it should be avoided if possible.

The main drawback with conventional treatment options for fibroids is that they focus on treating fibroid symptoms and not root causes. This means that even though you may feel relieved in the short term, the underlying causes are still present, meaning your fibroids will grow back even after surgery.

Natural Treatment

This focuses on the fact that illness and disease cannot exist in a healthy and balanced body and the emphasis is on holistic approaches. By building a strong immune system, cleansing the body of all toxins and unwanted pollutants, taking proper exercise and eating healthy, balanced, restored internal balance quickly and certain diseases are reversed, without causing permanent damage. One of the most important things to remember is that for natural treatments to work effectively, you must be prepared to make significant lifestyle and diet changes.
