If you have a diagnosis with uterine fibroids, then most likely you're searching for remedies for pain relief and ways to help shrink or eradicate fibroids that leave millions of women feeling isolated and somewhat depressed from dealing with an unbearable medical condition that alters their usual way of life.

The first step in getting help is to thoroughly educate yourself by understanding the opposition of uterine fibroids or otherwise known as uterine leiomyomas. If you are not adequately trained on the various types of tumor growths, their triggers and symptoms of this chronic disease, then you may want to start by reading my first article in a detailed series on uterine fibroids: 6 Types of Uterine Fibroids and Symptoms Explained

Aside from seeking qualified help from a medical practitioner, there are extra steps you can take to ensure a much happier and healthier lifestyle when cohabitating with the disease. The critical point to this approach is balancing hormone production to prevent further tumor growth.

If you desire truly to live you will cease trying to find magic tricks and short-cuts to life and learn the simple laws of being, and order your life in conformity with these. Realign your life with the laws of nature—this and this alone constitutes living to live.

— Herbert M. Shelton, Getting Well

Controlled Diet

Our eating habits play a huge roll in the development of fibroids. Those who have a diagnosis should know that changing the diet is an essential approach to the prevention of this disease. Several types of food should be eliminated from the menu as soon as possible. Of these food types, the contributing factors to the growths are GMO foods, fatty processed meats, followed by dairy products, refined sugar and carbohydrates, alcohol, caffeine, and lastly the ultimate culprit: unfermented soyfoods.

The good news is that your best options seem to be limited. Most likely this sounds twisted to the reader, but the body begs to differ. Sometimes less is more. As we narrow down the choices to wholesome fruits, vegetables, fresh ocean or lake catch fish (not farmed), free range or grass fed poultry and beef, and whole grains, one cannot go wrong. Yes, the cost is more to have better food, but in return, you are filtering out all the junk by narrowing down your choices thus you have more funds available to spend on the costlier food.

Once you've started this routing you must stay on the path, follow until it becomes the norm. Sooner or later you will no longer crave the old things of the past, and not only will you see a change with your condition, but your overall health and wellbeing as well. By the way, there is no bad news.

Daily Exercise

Estrogen plays a critical factor in the development of fibroids. Women who have a high concentration of belly fat are twice as likely to overproduce estrogen. Given these two facts, it is easy to deduce that overweight women are more inclined to battle with the disease.

Even though daily exercise ensures the loss of estrogen, keeping off the weight is another matter. If you are following our first step in controlling the diet, then this should not be a problem. Remember that exercise is a preventative. If a woman already suffers from the condition the activity itself does not shrink the tumor, however, following the controlled diet along with the next three steps will more than likely help shrink the growth.

Essential Oils

Essential oils have been around since the dawn of ancient times when great civilizations like that of the Chinese and Egyptian Dynasties, or the classical Greek and Roman cultures made use of a wide array of potent aromatic essences and resins used in their daily lives. Since then, spanning through the ages of time to the modern day aromatherapy world where essential oils are used as therapy for almost every health and well-being condition.

In lieu of the disease, certain oils are used to help alleviate symptoms associated such as the balance and support of hormonal changes, aiding the reproductive organs as well as fighting off inflammation and the progression of tumor growth.

How to Use Essential Oils

Rub two drops of the oil of your choice over your lower abdomen and pelvic region twice each day for thirty minutes to an hour before rinsing.

How to Use Castor Oil

Though Castor oil is not an essential oil, its use is also considered necessary to fighting uterine fibroids pain and inflammation; the process causes the circulation in the lymphatic and circulatory systems and also multiplies lymphocytes (white blood cells) that remove toxins from the body. Apply a castor oil pack to lower abdomen and pelvic region twice each day for at least an hour before rinsing.

Green Tea

Green tea is another ancient remedy first used by the Chinese. It is also a significant step as per the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Research has shown that the properties of green tea prevent the growth of rodent fibroid cells. The following study established that these green tea properties also prevented the acceleration of human fibroid cells and over time caused a death rate in the tumor growths.

Other studies have shown that drinking organic green tea 3-5 times each day accompanied with a controlled diet and daily exercise have a significant effect on the reversal of disease.

    Good piece. I have seen firsthand how a woman was able to shrink her fibroids (although not completely) by eliminating certain foods like sugar and red meat from her diet.
