Fibroids are benign growths of tissue that grow within various areas of the uterine wall. Often surgery is elected to remove fibroids if they are a concern, but if surgery is not an option, then Chinese medicine has options to help break down and reduce the size of fibroids. Herbal medicine is very important in the treatment of fibroids, and it can take up to six months of treatment.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can improve many of the symptoms of fibroid such as heavy periods, menstrual cramps, and fatigue. Success of the treatment will be determined by a number of factors such as the size and locations of the fibroids.
Chinese medical diet and lifestyle advice can help prevent fibroids from returning post-surgery.
