What Causes Fibroids?

A fibroid starts as a single muscle cell in the uterus. For reasons that are not known, this cell changes into a fibroid tumor cell and starts to grow and multiply. Heredity may be a factor. It is thought that a muscle cell in the uterus may be "programmed" from birth to develop into a fibroid sometime-perhaps many years-after puberty (the start of menstrual periods).

After puberty, the ovaries produce more hormones, especially estrogen. Higher levels of these hormones may help fibroids to grow, although exactly how this might happen is not understood

Wise Woman herbal and home remedies are simple, safe ways to help yourself when you have a diagnosis of uterine fibroids.

Uterine fibroids are solid muscle tissue growths in the uterus. They are also called fibroid tumors, myomas, or leiomyomas. Fibroids occur so frequently (in up to half of all women over forty) that they could be considered a normal irregularity. The occasional fibroid can become enormous (medical literature reports one that was 100 pounds!), but the majority (80%) remain as small as a walnut.

Fibroids are the number one reason American women have hysterectomies.

The causes of uterine fibroids are unknown, but estrogens, especially estradiol, promote their growth. After menopause fibroids disappear. But because estrogen levels can rise during the early menopausal years, previously asymptomatic fibroids may grow in the years just before the cessation of menses, resulting in symptoms such as feeling of heaviness in the belly, low back pain, pain with vaginal penetration, urinary frequency or incontinence, bowel difficulties, or severe menstrual pain and flooding.

Women of color are three to nine times more likely to have fibroids than white women, and theirs will grow more quickly.

Fibroid tumors are not cancer, not malignant. Tumor means a swelling or a growth, not a malignancy, not cancer. Less than 0.1% of all uterine fibroids are malignant.

Small fibroids often disappear spontaneously. Larger fibroids are more difficult to resolve, but not impossible to control with natural measures.

• The “root chakra” (lowermost energy center in the body, which includes the uterus) said to store unexpressed anger. It is believed that any unwanted growths in these organs can be countered by allowing the anger to safely discharge.

• One woman’s fibroids (and menstrual cramps) disappeared within three months of beginning a vigorous exercise program. Exercise helps insure regular ovulation, and irregular ovulation seems to worsen fibroids.

• Consuming three or more servings of whole grains or beans daily not only reduces the size of fibroids but offers protection from breast and endometrial cancers as well.

• Red clover flowers (Trifolium pratense), are one of my favorite infusions, but use during the menopausal years may increase difficulty with fibroids.

Strengthening the liver with herbs such as dandelion, milk thistle seed, or yellow dock root helps it metabolize estrogen out of the body, thus reducing fibroids.

• Vitex or chasteberry tincture, 25-30 drops two to four times daily, often shrinks small fibroids within two months. But results come from long-term use — up to two years.

• Ask someone to burn moxa over the area of the fibroid while you envision the heat releasing the treasures in your uterus. What is locked up in this fibroid? What can you give birth to?

• Acupuncture treatments can shrink fibroids.

• Poke root (Phytolacca americana), used internally as a tincture (1-10 drops per day; start small) and externally as a belly rub oil, has gained a reputation as a profound helper in relieving pain and distresses from fibroids. CAUTION: Poke is considered poisonous; it is not often found for sale. This is one remedy you may have to make yourself to try.

• Warm castor oil packs on the belly, or ginger compresses (soak a towel in hot ginger water) relieve pain and help shrink the fibroids.

• The use of progesterone to treat women with uterine fibroids is hotly debated. One side holds that fibroids are created by lack of progesterone. The other side makes, to my mind, the better case: that progesterone increases fibroids. Evidence? Fibroids increase in size during pregnancy, when progesterone production is high, and atrophy after menopause, when progesterone levels decrease. Whichever side is right, eating more whole grains and beans usually changes estrogen/progesterone ratio for the better and shrinks fibroids.

• Reduce fibroids by reducing your exposure to estrogen: avoid birth control pills, ERT/HRT, estrogen-mimicing residues from herbicides and pesticides used on food crops (eat organically- raised products). Tampons that are bleached with chlorine may mimic the bad effects of estrogen, too.

• Lupron (leuprolide acetate), a drug which induces “artificial menopause”by shutting down the body's production of estradiol causes a significant decrease in fibroid size within 8-12 weeks. Fibroids do regrow to about 90 percent of their original size when the drug is withdrawn however.

• Major advances have been made in surgical treatments for women with fibroids. There are many options now besides hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), including hysteroscopic resection, uterine embolization, myomectomy, and suprecervical hysterectomy. Since these are fairly new procedures, take the time to find a surgeon who is skilled in the procedure. .....

A tumor is a swelling or abnormal growth of tissues having no useful function in the body. Tumors may either be benign or malignant. Benign tumors are isolated growths that can occur anywhere in the body. They generally do not spread to other parts of the body and usually do not return after being surgically removed. Although benign tumors are generally limited in growth, they usually should be removed; a small percentage of these benign tumors later become malignant.

Fibroids are benign tumors that most often occur in the uterus. Hundreds of thousands of hysterectomies are performed each year due to the presence of fibroid tumors in the uterus. Unlike benign tumors, malignant tumors are cancerous and must be treated as early as possible. They tend to spread to other parts of the body and are likely to recur after surgical removal. See TRUMAN'S CANCER PROTOCOL for more information. Environmental factors and diet play an important role in the development of tumors. Some tumors have decreased in size and others have actually disappeared after victims changed their dietary program and supplemented their diets with herbs, vitamins and minerals. The dietary changes and supplements that follow enhance immune function, suppressing the growth of tumors-both benign and malignant.

ADENOMYOSIS: The presence of endometrial elements in an abnormal place: endometriosis. Adenomyosis external, the presence of endometrial growths outside of the uterus. Adenomyosis internal, the presence of endometrial growths in the uterine wall. Raw fruits and vegetables should comprise 50 percent of the diet. Nuts and seeds, whole grains, should be included in the diet. Eliminate animal protein, meats, fish, fowl, dairy products, salt, sugar, white flour, and white flour products from the diet. Also avoid processed and packaged foods. These types of foods contain no enzymes, are hard to digest, and cause toxic substances to form in the colon and bloodstream.

SUPPOSITORY

Internal. Cut cotton in pieces two inches by four inches. Lay them on top of each other until you have a small pile about one inch high. Tie a string tightly around the middle and leave one end about ten inches long loosely hanging. Use black salve) and vegetable glycerin. Mix two teaspoons of Black salve and two teaspoons of glycerin together in a cup or small pan. (Use more of this mixture if needed.) Soak the cotton in this mixture thoroughly and insert it into the vagina up to the cervix, leaving the long end of the string hanging out. Wear a heavy cotton cloth or sanitary napkin over the vaginal opening so the mixture will not leak on your bed clothing. Follow this procedure five nights weekly before bed and remove it each morning by pulling slightly on the string. This will draw out the infection and help shrink fibroid tumors and ovarian cysts, or other growths that are in the uterus. Fibroid tumors are known to completely disappear in one month, they were so large it blocked the colon and inhibited bowel movements.

Douche in the morning with an infusion made from equal parts goldenseal and myrrh. Make a quart of this tea and add one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Or use 1051 Herbal Douche Formula follow directions on label. This procedure is also good for chronic vaginitis, and other vaginal and uterine infections. Note: If black salve cannot be found, make a poultice out of equal parts of slippery elm powder, white oak bark powder and enough water and French clay to make it of thin consistency. Mix the cotton layers in this and follow the above directions.

  Natural Ways to Shrink and Eliminate Fibroid Tumors

by Luella May

Fibroid tumors are tumors composed of fibrous tissue which generally occur in women during their reproductive years and shrink or disappear after menopause. Most of the time they are benign and cause no apparent symptoms; however, in other instances, fibroid tumors can result in severe discomfort and may include heavy bleeding and pain.  Conventional medicine’s answer to fibroid tumors is very often a hysterectomy or other type of surgery and medications – none of which guarantees that fibroids will not return.  Nature, on the other hand, can shrink or eliminate fibroid tumors by addressing their source cause and utilizing remedies which create an environment in which fibroids are no longer welcome.

Fibroid tumors are also known as myomas, leiomyomas and fibromyomas.  Their cause is not fully known, though estrogen is considered a primary factor in their growth.  The jury is out, however, on whether the use of progesterone to treat women with uterine fibroids alleviates or promotes fibroids.  One side claims that that lack of progesterone is the cause of tumor growth, while the other side points out that fibroids grow at a faster rate during pregnancy when progesterone levels are high.

Fibroid tumors can vary in size from so minute that they can only be identified under a microscope to very large.  They can present themselves as a single tumor or as several masses.  Although their rate of growth is generally slow, they can grow quickly during pregnancy.  Symptoms include abnormal bleeding (sometimes severe enough to cause anemia), menstrual pain, and a swollen abdomen.  Fibroids can also cause infertility. 
 
Fibroid tumors fall into the following three categories:
 
* Subserous tumors appear outside of the uterus.
* Intramural tumors are confined to the wall of the uterus.
* Submucous tumors appear inside the uterus.
 
Avoiding birth control pills can help prevent fibroid growth.  Just as these tumors grow faster during pregnancy, their growth is also accelerated by birth control pills containing estrogen.  Pesticides and herbicides used on food products are estrogen mimicking products to avoid. Tampons and napkins bleached with chlorine can also mimic estrogen.  
 
Following are remedies which may be effective in shrinking or eliminating fibroid tumors as well as alleviating discomfort and symptoms:
 
Fibroids can be reduced by consuming at least three servings of whole grains and/or beans daily. Whole grain and beans also protect against breast and endometrial cancer.
 
Eliminating excess estrogen will result in shrinking fibroids. Dandelion, milk thistle, and yellow dock help to metabolize estrogen from the body.
 
Chasteberry tincture is often used successfully to shrink and prevent the return of fibroids. It reduces excess estrogen, balances hormones, and reduces inflammation.  However, results often only become apparent after several months of usage.  The dosage is 25 to 30 drops two to four times daily.
 
Additional herbs effective in treating fibroids include black cohosh, Siberian ginseng, red clover, goldenseal, red raspberry, licorice root, and motherwort.
 
Supplemental oleander extract, primarily used in addressing cancer and HIV/AIDS, is also often effective against fibroids and other types of tumors and irregular cells
 
Liver cleanses and drinking plenty of water to expel toxins from the body may also be very helpful.
 
Warm castor oil packs placed on the stomach is another effective method of shrinking fibroids and relieving pain.  Ginger compresses are also effective.
 
Exercise helps the body to free itself of toxins and regulate ovulation.  Some women experience tumor reduction while following a vigorous exercise program.
 
Lastly, taking a variety of digestive enzymes in quantity several times a day on an empty stomach has been reported to be very effective at removing fibroid tissue.  For more information see:

IODINE for Estrogen balance and fibrocystic disease

“Iodine is also critically important for maintaining estrogen balance within the body. Based on a controlled clinical trial with 1,365 women, 4mg daily of molecular iodine quickly "resolves" fibrocystic breast disease - it makes breast lumps and cysts disappear usually within only two months for most women. Iodine can similarly reduce uterine fibroids and one of the first conventional medical treatments for severe fibroids was to paint the uterus with iodine.”http://www.florahealth.com/flora/home/canada/healthinformation/encyclopedias/Iodine.asp

Iodine Cures

Updated: 03/25/2012

According to our readers, not only does iodine cure an impending cold or flu, it also cures acne, PMS, anxiety, allergies, hypothyroidism, bladder infections, moles, dermatitis and fibroystic breast disease!

Do you use iodine? Please let us know what cures it has offered you!

KelpDue to the potential allergic reaction of iodine, some herbalists use some form of seaweed. A very mild form of iodine is liquid kelp. Small quantities of liquid kelp can be extremely useful since the benefits tend to be cumulative.

Note #1: We do not sell iodine (in fact, we don't sell anything on this site). We found "decolorized iodine" at Walmart last summer so you might start there. Try a google search to find it online. We found Lugol's iodine at jcrows.com for $8.00/bottle. Since Lugol's solution is a prescription medication in the US, it is sometimes sold as a talisman (as on jcrows.com) without a prescription and labeled as a poison. However, it IS safe to take internally in small doses.

Note #2: If you have fair skin and are painting iodine in an obvious place (face, throat, etc) you might purchase colorless or decolorized iodine at the pharmacy or over the internet.
