Uterine Fibroids (Myomas, Fibromyoma, Myofibroma, Fibroleiomyoma, Benign Uterine Tumors)

Homeopathic treatment

Before delving into homeopathic treatment let us first discuss the conventional or allopathic treatment available.

By far the most commonest solution that allopathy offers to a patient of uterine fibroids or myomas is surgery. It is usually in the form of hysterectomy i.e. surgical removal of whole of uterus. Sometimes myomectomy i.e. removal of only fibroid is done. In about 75% of cases the fibroids have been shown to return within five years after a myomectomy is performed.

Removal of uterus leads to surgically induced menopause which brings more problems such as abrupt onset of hot flashes, headaches, mood changes, sleep disruption, insomnia, night sweats, emotional labiality, loss of libido or desire for sex, vaginal dryness, weight gain, malaise, acne, unwanted hair growth, deeper voice and osteoporosis (bone loss). In the end the lady regrets her decision to go under the surgeon's knife.

If the patient does not opt for surgical removal of uterus then the allopaths prescribe drug therapy which includes hormonal pills, NSAID's, oral contraceptive pills and so on which also induce menopause with side effects as mentioned in the above paragraph.

Also many a times surgical operation can result in other complications, for example, infection, bleeding, formation of adhesions (scar tissue) which cause severe pain, infertility. It usually requires surgical correction.

But with homeopathy the patient can avoid surgery as well as strong allopathic drug treatment with side effects, especially if the treatment is begun before the fibroids become too large. The remedies control the further growth and may also slowly and gradually reduce the size of existing ones. The medicines also prevent the complications such as anemia due to prolonged heavy bleeding, urinary problems and so on.

Thus homeopathy is definitely suggested in uterine fibroids or myomas. While on treatment the woman avoids surgical operation thus continuing their household and professional activities and saving money because it is well known that surgery leads to physical, mental, emotional and financial trauma. Homeopathy treatment under a competent doctor may take time but it will avoid all the unwanted complications and will preserve the fertility of the female.

Moreover, even if surgery is chosen homeopathic treatment is highly effective to prevent the formation of adhesions (scar tissue), which is a frequent sequel of myomectomy and hysterectomy.

There are 93 homeopathy medicines which give great relief in uterine fibroid or myoma. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are tailor made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same drugs i.e. hormonal pills although trade name may be different.

Some of the remedies which may be used in a case of uterine fibroid or myoma under an expert doctor are Conium maculatum, Hydrastis, Hydrocotyle, Acid nitricum, Thuja occidantalis, Trillium pendulum, Thlaspi bursa, Aurum metallicum, Caulophyllum, Lachesis and so on.

For example Aurum metallicum is used in cases with large fibroids, often prolapsing into vagina, associated with a deep sense of depression and hopelessness. Caulophyllum is used in patients with heavy bleeding with labor like cramps and passage of tissue with clots.

Thus homeopathy acts as a safe, effective, natural alternative to drugs, hormones and surgery. This is one of the diseases where homeopathy has been very effective in preventing imminent surgery.

For best results homoeopathic treatment must be taken seriously for about 12 to 20 months depending upon the number and size of uterine fibroids or myomas.

What are uterine fibroids or myomas

Uterine fibroid or myoma is a non-cancerous i.e. benign growth in the uterus. They are also called fibromyoma, myofibroma and fibroleiomyoma.

They vary in size, usually grow slowly, and may occur in the wall of the uterus or inside the cavity, in the cervix (the part below the uterus) or at times even on the outer side of uterus.

They are usually made up of muscular or fibrous tissue of the uterus and blood vessels.

Uterine fibroids or myomas are extremely common occuring in 20 to 25% of women by age of 40 and 50% of women in general and are the most common cause of major surgery in women. They usually develop in women between 30 and 50 years of age.

  • No one knows what exactly causes fibroids but their growth appears to depend on increases estrogen hormone levels.
  • Because of this fibroids enlarge during estrogen (hormonal) replacement therapy and pregnancy.
  • Also oral contraceptives are know to cause them.

  • Patients may not have any symptoms and doctor discovering the uterine fibroids on physical examination or ultrasonography.
  • Excessive, heavy, irregular or prolonged bleeding.
  • Uterine heaviness.
  • Pain in lower abdomen in general.
  • Painful sexual intercourse.
  • Bloating.
  • Infertility.
  • Abdominal lump.
  • Urinary frequency.
  • Bowel pressure with constant urging for stool.

  • Anemia due to excessive heavy bleeding.
  • Interference with growth of fetus during pregnancy.
  • Could cause problem during delivery.
  • Severe bleeding or infection.

Lab investigations

  • Ultrasound of lower abdomen.

Acupressure

  • Cramps that sometimes accompany fibroids may be treated with a kind of 'first aid' acupressure that focuses on specific pressure points for temporary relief of pain.
  • Beneficial points include Spleen 6, Spleen 8, Liver 3, and Conception Vessel 4.

Massage, yoga & tai chi

Massage, yoga and tai chi may increase energy flow to the pelvis, which may help shrink fibroids.

Diet & nutrition

  • Reducing fat intake and increasing fiber intake will lessen your estrogen production and restore hormone balance, which may effectively combat fibroid growth.
  • Incorporating more citrus fruits, red onions and leafy vegetables may also be effective against fibroid growth.
  • A high-fibre diet will ease difficulty with moving your bowels.

Home remedies

When fibroids occur on the outside of the uterus (subserous fibroids), you may become aware of a mass on your abdomen. Lying down and placing a hot pack or hot-water bottle on the lower abdomen lessens pain. The hot packs should be applied three times a week for at least 60 minutes each time.
