Naturopathic Fibroid Treatment

Fibroids are benign lumps that grow on the uterus and often appear during the childbearing years. They are not associated with an increased risk for uterine cancer and they almost never develop into cancer themselves. As many as three quarters of all women develop uterine fibroids in their lifetimes, but the vast majority go unreported because they are too small or minor for symptoms to appear.

For those women who do experience symptoms associated with their uterine fibroids, they can show up as heavy menstrual bleeding, longer menstrual periods, pain or pressure in the pelvis, frequent urination, the inability to empty the bladder, constipation, as well as leg and back pains. Fibroids develop from the smooth tissue of the uterus. A single cell will divide a multitude of times to create a rubbery mass of tissue. Fibroids often fluctuate in size, and oftentimes they will disappear after pregnancy or menopause. In very rare cases, fibroids can block fallopian tubes and cause infertility.

At Flow Natural Health Care, we are experts at using Naturopathic methods for treating cases of uterine fibroids. We employ the same screening and diagnostic tools that medical doctors use. Using a combination of modern medicine and natural methods, we can effectively treat your fibroids.
