When it comes to natural fertility, fibroids play a huge role in determining how likely you are to suffer from reproductive issues and become pregnant.
According to John Hopkins Medicine, 77% of women will develop fibroids in their reproductive years, with only one third large enough to diagnose during a physical exam. On top of that, black women are three times more likely to develop fibroids when compared to white women.
What does this mean for you sis?
Learning how to shrink your fibroids naturally is an important step in healing your womb so you can become pregnant.
For many women suffering from fibroids, surgical removal can feel like the only option, but this does nothing to address the root cause. Fibroids are physical manifestations of blockages in the body. If you fail to understand the reasons why you have these blocks, the fibroids will continue to show up.
In fact, according to an article from Jafari Acupuncture, studies show the recurrence rate of uterine fibroids to be as high as 30% after surgery.
Addressing the root cause of your fibroids
Addressing your hormones is the first step to healing your fibroids naturally. Fibroids manifest when you have too much estrogen and your hormones become imbalanced.
Treating estrogen dominance by improving your diet and reducing your exposure to xenoestrogens can help.
It’s also important to get plenty of exercise. Exercise improves blood circulation in your wound and helps reduce stress. Since estrogen is stored in excess body fat, losing weight is one way to shrink your fibroids naturally and prevent them from returning in the future.
The best herbs for fibroids
Using herbal medicine for fertility can help shrink your fibroids naturally by reducing blood stagnation and dampness in the body.
In traditional Chinese medicine, blood stagnation is thought to cause fibroids by interrupting smooth blood flow to the pelvis. This interruption can create blockages manifesting as fibroids and other issues related to excess estrogen.
Using herbs that reduce dampness help improve digestion, hormone metabolism, and liver function, which all create a healthy environment where fibroids no longer thrive.
Gui Zhi Fu Ling Tang
Gui Zhi Ling Tang is a Chinese medicinal treatment consisting mainly of cinnamon twigs and Poria cocos mushrooms. When used together, these herbs reduce blood stagnation and promote circulation in the uterus, helping to remove built up blockages. They can also soften hard lumps in the body (like fibroids or cysts) by removing dead cells through a process called apoptosis.
Chaste Berry (Vitex)
Chaste Tree Berry, or Vitex, is a European herb that supports hormone health by increasing progesterone levels. Since low progesterone can cause estrogen dominance, balancing your progesterone levels is key to shrinking fibroids. In addition, Chaste Tree Berry can relieve PMS symptoms such as premenstrual bloating, headaches, skin issues, and breast tenderness.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea contains a powerful polyphenol called EGCG which studies have shown can help reduce fibroid growth. EGCG is an anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant which supports the body’s natural detox pathways.
Castor Oil Packs
Castor oil is a great natural remedy I recommend all my JUJU mamas try. Castor oil increases circulation to the uterine area, breaking up stagnation and preventing the build up of excess tissue. It can also reduce inflammation, activate the immune system, and help relieve painful PMS symptoms.
To use a castor oil pack, massage castor oil into your lower abdomen area, and cover with a soft cloth. Cover the cloth in plastic wrap, and place a hot water bottle overtop for painful symptom relief.
Learning the best ways to treat your fibroids naturally is one way to tap into your fertility. Before using herbal medicine it’s important to do your research and understand that different plants affect each of us individually. You are responsible for your own health and safety. Use this information to tap into your own divine wisdom and make decisions best for you.
