UTERINE FIBROIDS

Known in the medical profession as myomas or leiomyomas, uterine fibroids are benign growths that can form on both the interior muscle wall of the uterus as well as the exterior. These tumors can range in size from microscopic to several pounds. In some cases, the cervix along with the uterus can be involved with this disorder. While the name says "fibroid", these tumor cells are not fibrous.

Rather, they are abnormal muscle cells that are categorized by their position within the uterus. Uterine fibroids can be classified as intramural, submucosal or subserosal. In cases where the fibroids are attached to the uterus by a stalk, they are classified as pedunculated.

An estimated 2-3 out of every 10 women develop fibroid tumors. For reasons that still remain somewhat of a mystery, these tumors typically form during the late 30's and early 40's and begin to shrink after menopause. For this reason, it would seem logical to assume that estrogen plays a role in this process. While all women produce estrogen however, only some develop fibroid tumors. A genetic link does seem to exist when it comes to the presence of these tumors and they are 3 times more likely to develop in African-American women than women of any other ethnicity.

In most cases, a woman with fibroid tumors won't even know she has them until they are discovered during a routine pelvic examination. In almost half of all cases, symptoms are non-existent but when they are present, they can include heavy & frequent menstrual periods, increased vaginal discharge, bleeding after intercourse, bleeding between periods, anemia, fatigue & weakness from loss of blood and painful sexual intercourse.

Uterine fibroids can also, depending on their location cause pain in the back, legs or pelvis and exert pressure on the bowels or bladder.

The regimen outlined below can help treat uterine fibroids safely & naturally:

While there is no sure fire way to prevent uterine fibroids, measures can be taken take to treat the disorder

Consume foods high in iron to prevent anemia.

Increase dietary fiber, take a vitamin C supplement and drink plenty of water to prevent constipation.

If menstrual bleeding is so heavy that it saturates a pad or tampon more often than once an hour, a professional health care practitioner should be consulted.

The following supplements may also be beneficial:

Coenzyme Q10 (take as directed on label) - Promotes immune function and tissue oxygenation. I recommend the brand Q-absorb by Jarrow Formulas.

Iron (take as directed on label) - Essential for oxygenation of blood cells. Those with heavy menstrual bleeding can become iron deficient.

L-Arginine (take as directed on label) - An amino acid that enhances immune function and may slow tumor growth.

Garlic (2 capsules, 3 times daily) - Inhibits tumor growth. I recommend the brand Kyolic by Wakunaga of America, which is an odorless organic garlic supplement.

High-Potency Multivitamin and Mineral Complex (take as directed on label) - Keeps the body’s nutrients in balance.

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids (2,000 - 5,000 mg daily in divided doses) - Acts as an antioxidant.

Zinc (50 mg daily) - Necessary for a healthy immune system.

Copper (3 mg daily) - Necessary to balance with zinc.
