treatment for uterine fibroids

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus common in women in their reproductive ages.  


While they can occur at any age, they are most prevalent among women in their 40s and early 50s. Studies show that about 20% to 80% of women will develop uterine fibroids by the time they reach the age of 50. 


Modern medicine suggests strong medications and surgery as the treatment for uterine fibroids. Unfortunately, most people resort to these methods without looking for other options.  


Do you know that Ayurveda can treat uterine fibroids and reduce them in size without strong medications and surgery? 


What are uterine fibroids? 


Uterine fibroids are benign tumours that develop within the uterine muscle. These growths can vary in size, number, and location within the uterus.  


Symptoms of uterine fibroids 


The following symptoms suggest that you may have uterine fibroids:  

  • Heavy flow during periods  
  • Longer periods lasting more than 10 days  
  • Pain around the pelvis  
  • Frequent urination & difficulty in emptying, etc.  


However, they can be asymptomatic too, and you may detect it only with an ultrasound. 


Ayurveda and uterine fibroids 


Ayurvedically, we treat uterine fibroids based on the Dosha-Dhatu imbalance of individual patients, with Ayurvedic medicines, diet and routines. They can be completely reduced in size with Ayurveda.   


Ayurvedic practitioners prescribe herbal formulations that aim to restore balance to the Doshas and promote the body’s natural healing processes. These herbal remedies can help reduce the size of fibroids and alleviate associated symptoms. 


Ayurvedic dietary recommendations are personalized to address the specific Dosha imbalance. A balanced diet with an emphasis on whole foods, fruits, vegetables, and herbs is encouraged to support overall well-being. 


Ayurveda places great importance on daily routines (Dinacharya) and seasonal routines (Ritucharya). Adhering to these routines can help maintain a harmonious balance within the body and mind, promoting healing. 


But unfortunately, Ayurveda is considered the “last resort” or the “last option” when other medical systems fail. Most patients come to Ayurveda for treatment for uterine fibroids only after they have grown quite big in size – when modern medicine has advised surgery as the only option. At this point, it becomes difficult even for a good Ayurvedic doctor to treat.   


So, seek Ayurvedic support as soon as you are diagnosed with fibroids. Don’t wait for the fibroids to get bigger, even if it stays asymptomatic!
