Uterine fibroid myoma Homeopathic treat

It is one of the most common diseases found in middle aged females. The disease in which surgery is thought to be a common solution. But indiscriminate and hasty decision of removal of uterus and ovaries in cases of fibroid them had done more harms than good.It had got both short term and long term implications. Hence removal of uterus in cases of benign uterine fibroid is a decision, which should be taken after thorough assessment of the case.

Uterine fibroid is a benign i.e. non -cancerous growth from the muscle layer of uterus and is medically referred as uterine fibromyomas. It is commonly called uterine fibroid. It is generally formed of a mixture of muscle tissues containing fibrous tissues. The cause of its formation is not definitely known. Infertility and endometrial hyperplasia is considered to be associated factors. The development of fibroid during reproductive age appears to be due to a hormone called oesterogen and increased supply of blood in uterus. Hereditary factor also plays an important role

Diet Self care Home measure for fibroid

Diets high in fiber may lower the body's exposure to estrogen, a female hormone linked to fibroid growth. Dietary fiber helps the body absorb estrogen and move it out of the body.
Foods that contain vitamin C may regulate estrogen levels in women with fibroids.Eat organic fruits and vegetables to treat and prevent the growth of uterine fibroids. Organic fruits and vegetables are not sprayed with pesticides that contain xenoestrogens, or synthetic chemicals that produce an estrogen response in the body.


Ginger root is very effective, because it reduces the pain and increases blood circulation. You can make a tea by adding some fresh ginger roots in a glass of boiling water. Strain the tea and drink it many a times in a day. Ginger root also aids in reducing inflammation in the ovaries and uterus.

Olive oil

Olive oil is one of the natural cures for fibroids. It is known for blocking estrogen. You should take one tablespoon of olive oil with some lemon juice on an empty stomach in the morning. You can likewise make olive tea by brewing olive leaves that help boost the immune system.

Epsom salt bath

An Epsom salt bath will also greatly help reduce pain and other indications connected with ovarian cysts. Epsom salt consists of high magnesium sulfate that works as a muscle relaxant that in turn eases pain.


Uterine Fibroids are the innocent growths arise in the myometrium; commonly occur in 10% of all gynaecological patients, after 35 yrs. In my experience, maximum number of cases of uterine fibroids presented with menstrual disturbances like Polymennorrhea, Metorrhagia, and Menorrhagia. Patients are anxious, fearful and in most of the cases, they try to avoid surgery. Most of the patients were advised to undergo hysterectomy and few numbers they themselves want to go for hysterectomy because of the haemorrhage. Homoeopathy plays an important role not only removing the symptoms but also reducing the uterine pathology.

Symptoms of mild menstrual irregularities can often be confused with symptoms of more serious conditions such as uterine cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, and ovarian cysts. These conditions can be detrimental or even fatal if left untreated. Moreover, untreated menstrual irregularities can lead to complications such as infertility and osteoporosis. It is therefore vital for women with symptoms of menstrual irregularities to take action immediately and seek proper diagnosis.

“To cut them out doesn’t cure them, cutting them out removes the effect of the disease, but doesn’t remove the disease itself. It is like cutting off the tops of weeds they grow again, either at the same place or in another place. Months of careful treatment is required for their cure. When thus cured is cured.”-Kent


Commonly recognized types of Uterine fibroid(myoma)

Interstitialtype:In this type the fibroid grows in the substance of uterine wall and remains as such when small or subserous. It is the commonest type of uterine fibroids and is found in 60%of cases. Posterior wall of the uterus is the commonest site for tumor formation.

The second type is subserous type:In this type the tumor is formed underneath the peritoneum and may be sessile or pedunculated.    

The third type is submucous type: In this case tumor grows inside the mucous membrane of uterus and projects inside the uterus cavity. They are usually single It may be sessile or pedunculated. The expulsive power of the uterus makes sessile fibroids pedunculated.Generally they are symptom less. But, profuse bleeding is one of the most common features attached to it. This is present in about three fourth of the cases and the passage of clots make the situation worse. The excessive bleeding is caused due to many factors. They include the increase in Endometrial surface, increase in vascularity of uterus etc. times there are other menstrual disorders may also be the cause of increase bleeding.There is a feeling of lump in the lower abdomen in some cases in which women seeks treatment. For this uterus size reaches 14 weeks pregnancy and above.It is an astonishing fact that about 80%of women with fibroids are also suffering from infertility so; it is one of the major causes of infertility. At times there is frequent and urgency to urinate due to pressure of bladder or constipation . The pain in case of fibroid is a rare symptom. The symptoms of anemia are present where there is excess of bleeding.On examination per abdomen it is found that a firm irregular lump can be palpated arising out of pelvis.The surface of the lump may be smooth and the lump shows dullness on percussion. Investigations by means of pelvic examination can diagnose uterine fibroid in most of the situations. Examination under anesthesia confirms the diagnosis. But, these days pelvic ultrasound is of much help. Laproscopy can identify a few small subserous fibroids while hysteroscope can visualize submucous fibroids.


For large tumors of pelvic IVP is done to identify pelvic positions of uterus. Cervical scrape PAP stain cytology is mandatory.Now comes the most essential part i.e. the treatment of uterine fibroid. In allopathic the conservative treatment by means of hormones but it is hardly of any use. And the advice, which is given after a few weeks of antibiotic treatment to the patient are of, is generally myomectomy or the removal of tumor from the uterus. Generally hysterectomy is advised. It is the removal of the uterus and tumor along with the bilateral salphingooophorectomyBut this is not the right choice to make as it had got the problems of its own. In most of the cases in the allopathic hands they either advice hysterectomy in the first stage or they will ask the patient to undergo hormone treatment followed by the advice of operation.

The major draw back which is involved is that it takes away the natures pride of a women of child bearing & life long problems.The reason are very obvious that myomectomy is not successful and abdominal hysterectomy is the only option left.


In most of the cases total removal of uterus is done if the women is not in the childbearing age. Operation itself  is a complicated procedure and it had got its own risk factors. It is just said by the physicians that surgical procedure is just a matter of two to three hours and you can walk down to the house after your stitches gets cut of after a week. But In reality the things are not as simple as they are said. The operation is done under general anesthesia. The operation it self is a painful process and after operation also the patient is not free from the pain. There is intense pain after the operation, which is suppressed by heavy antibiotics. These antibiotics fell heavy both on the patient s digestive system as well as on his pocket. They disturb the gastro- intestinal system of the patient. After operation also the patient is advised complete bed rest for one week or fifteen days. During this period the patient had to take large amount of allopathic drugs and there are fair amount of chances of infection in the operated area. Slightest exertion can cause the rupture of the effected area along with pain, which may require re stitching. The problem does not end here also. The patient is also advised diet restrictions. He suffers from intense weakness.Once the patient is discharged from the hospital he is advised to take complete rest for three months. Patient himself is not in the position to move around much for a period of one month. The lady is advised not to climb stairs for three months or to lift any heavy load. If she is a teacher or office goers it is advised for her not to take extra strain. The patient is also advised to have a protein rich diet. The complete recovery of the patient takes around five to six months.On the other hand homoeopathic treatment is hassle free and cost effective. But it is the drawback of this society that when a patient comes to us after her mind being polluted to get the hysterectomy i.e. removal of uterus and to get rid of the problem forever. Without knowing its implications. Then she wants that she should get rid of the slightest pain in minutes.

The patient will be very eager to get her menstrual bleeding normal in days. Then it is the duty of the homoeopathic physician to make her understand the problems which she is facing and the problems which she will face.He should put all the facts in front of her. He should be very clear about what homoeopathy can offer to her and what are the pros and cones of surgery.We personally ask the patient to give us time for three months to show her what we can to in the particular case of her. We tell the patient about the full procedure of operation. Then we ask her to take the decision. Many times in our daily practice we encounter that the patient is misguided that if the operation is not done it many turn cancerous. Which is not the case in most of the patients. There are many effective medicines in homoeopathy, which help control the excessive bleeding and pain in the due course of time. They also subsequently reduce the size of the fibroid and finally dissolve it. After the first Ultrasound and the repeated ultrasound after three months the reduction in size clearly indicates the response of homoeopathic medicines. Then we can also tell the patient that if in three months tumor had reduced to a certain size then in the next three to four months it will totally get irradiated.So, if your mother, sister, wife or friend comes across with case of fibroid in the uterus ask her to consult a proper homoeopath and to get into a regular treatment of three to four months followed closely by the ultrasounds before going for the surgical removal.As surgical removal is not safe and cost effective also. If homoeopathy is not able to live up to your expectations you can get it remove any time even after 6 to 8 months of homoeopathic treatment. We can very well assure you that you will not be at a loss. The women will be saved from the hardships and the loss of vital organ from the body.                                                           

Symptoms & Signs of Uterine fibroid(myoma)

  • Abdominal fullness, gas, or constipation
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Increase in urinary frequency
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), sometimes with the passage of blood clots
  • Menstrual periods that may last longer than normal
  • Pelvic cramping or pain with periods
  • Sensation of fullness or pressure in lower abdomen
  • Pain during intercourse


Causes of Uterine fibroid(myoma)

Exact reason is not there for why women develop these tumors.

Obesity: Unreasonable form weight can moreover give to development of uterine tumors.

Chemicals: Certain pesticides or herbicides frequently hold heightened levels of estrogen. Display to these mechanically expands the possibility of fibroid development.

Early feminine cycle: Ladies who begin bleeding at an absolutely early experience are less averse to experience fibroids.

Genetic abnormalities,

Alterations in growth factor (proteins formed in the body that direct the rate and extent of cell proliferation) expression,

Abnormalities in the vascular (blood vessel) system,

Tissue response to injury.

How do homeopathic medicines for fibroids work

All fibroids have a network of blood vessels which keep the fibroid live as well as help it grow in size. We assume that the medicines we prescribe help by:

a. Reducing or cutting the blood flow to the tumor. This is evident by the reduced bleeding or hemorrhage experienced by women on starting homeopathic medicines at our clinics.

b. Blocking the blood flow causes death of the entire or part of the fibroid

c. The fibroid usually shrinks in size over a few months. You may also experience pieces of the amputated fibroid being expelled out usually during your menstrual cycle.

Exams and Tests

A pelvic examination may show an irregularly shaped, lumpy, or enlarged uterus. Frequently, this diagnosis is reliable. In some cases, it is difficult to diagnose fibroids, especially in obese women. Fibroid tumors have been mistaken for:

  • Pregnancy
  • Ovarian tumors
  • Inflammation of the fallopian tubes
  • Uterine adenomyosis (a condition in which the uterine lining grows into the muscle wall of the uterus)

A transvaginal ultrasound or pelvic ultrasound may be done to confirm the diagnosis of fibroids. Sometimes, a pelvic MRI is used to confirm the diagnosis.

An endometrial biopsy (biopsy of the uterine lining) or laparoscopy may be needed to rule out cancer.

Homoeopathic Treatment in Uterine fibroid(myoma)

It may be possible to heal uterine fibroids by taking only the constitutional remedy. This, in effect, would mean to find a remedy that would describe the essence of the entire state of the patient... a much too long shot, in most cases. If it were possible just like that, there would be no need neither for homeopathic mixtures nor for any other kind of medicine at all.

Now, let us recap the situation. Uterine fibroids are benign tumours in the uterus, which is a sack of a kind, with cervix as an outlet. How to eliminate them from the body? The following list of actions comes to mind:

1) Stop uterine fibroids from growing again

Surgery cannot do this without taking away the whole uterus (hysterectomy) or its inner wall (endometrial ablation). A treatment with homeopathic miasms and constitutional remedies can stop the unwanted growths and enable you to continue living with your reproductive organs as a whole.

2) Melt the fibroids down in order to easily remove them from the body

In real life, this requires a surgery, while in energy healing, this boils down to taking another remedy -- a very non-invasive procedure.

3) Cut uterine fibroids out

Again, homeopathy can help here, in a non-invasive way. There is a remedy,Silicea, which acts as a "homeopathical scalpel", while another, Myrristica Sebifera acts as a "homeopathical knife". Taken together, they separate uterine fibroids from the wall of the uterus, and then the tumors fall away.

4) Export them out

Again, homeopathy can help. A remedy called Hepar Sulphuris Calcareaspeeds up the growth of uterine fibroids, while Silicea with Myrristica Sebifera take the bad tissue out.

5) Clean up the act -- both the uterus physically and the whole body hormonally

Post-op treatment can sometimes be weeks long. In homeopathy, there would be no ill effects of anestesia, cutting, bleeding, wounds, etc. etc. Applied properly, homeopathy is a better way of getting the uterine fibrods out! 

There is no one single remedy which is a traditional fibroid remedy. A constitutional remedy based on the totality of all your symptoms is an ideal prescription. Some well-indicated remedies used at our centres are: Calcarea Carbonica, Thuja Occidentalis, Lachesis Mutans, Phosphorus, Aurum Mur Natrionatum, Fraxinus Americanus, Silicea etc, to name a few. Never indulge into self medication as the remedy indicated in your case depends on the signs and symptoms you present with and could be entirely different.
