Uterine fibroids: how to avoid surgery and help yourself heal

FibroidsHas your doctor told you that you have fibroids in your uterus?

The most obvious symptom that you could have uterine fibroids is the extra-heavy menstruation, or ‘flooding’ they can cause. Whether or not fibroids are considered to be an ‘official’ symptom of menopause, this condition can show up or worsen at this time of life.

Fibroids are common in 40% of women in their 40s and 50s and are non-cancerous growths made up of muscle and connective tissue.

It’s important to see your doctor to rule out serious health challenges through diagnostic tests. Then you’ll need to consider what to do about what she/he finds.

Your doctor may send you for a transvaginal ultrasound to determine if you have fibroids and their size(s). He or she may send you to a gynecologist for further testing and she could recommend surgery. This is not an ideal option since it is an invasive procedure with risks, and fibroids can grow back! Interestingly, they usually disappear on their own after menopause. I have fibroids and chose not to have surgery – my fibroids are not painful and I have the flooding under control with gentle healing herbs.

Doctors and surgeons have great diagnostic capabilities! In fact, they’re the only health practitioners allowed to make a diagnosis about your health. They have a rather limited number of ‘tools’ or treatment options based on their training – drugs, hormones or surgery – all of which can have serious negative side-effects. Once you have a diagnosis, you can take 100% responsibility for your life, health and wellness. You don’t have to accept any of those currently conventional options.

The cause of fibroids? Some say ‘estrogen dominence’, others say eating the wrong foods, and/or body toxicity. Estrogen dominence is a condition where a woman can have deficient, normal or excessive estrogen, but has little or no progesterone to balance its effects in her body. A woman can have low estrogen levels and have estrogen dominance symptoms if she doesn ‘t have any progesterone.

There’s always an interesting mind-body connection with any condition or illness. There’s no longer any doubt that there’s an intimate connection between what’s going on (or has gone on) in your life, and what’s going on in your body. The effects of emotional stress on the body is one example.

There’s a relatively new area of study called ‘medical intuition’. What it means for you is, if you haven’t let go, or released, past ‘trauma’ including noteworthy ‘negative’ experiences that happened when you were a child, they are incomplete, ‘loose ends’ that are likely still significantly influencing your experience of life today. How do you know you have them? The intense emotion these events still create when you allow yourself to think of them, is one clue that you’ve got some inner work to do. These emotions may manifest into physical symptoms to get your attention to honor what happened, release their emotional ‘charge’ and tie off those loose ends so you can experience greater emotional freedom, peace and happiness.

Only you can determine whether the following mind-body interpretations apply to you and your uterine fibroids.

Mind-body expert Debbie Shapiro (author of ‘Your Body Speaks Your Mind’) says fibroids are a gathering of mental patterns or attitudes that have been suppressed for so long that they’ve taken a solid form. Uterine fibroids are connected to our feelings of femininity, sexuality, womanhood or motherhood. “There may be accumulated or unexpressed guilt, shame, loss grief, inner confusion or past hurt and abuse.”

Mind-body expert Lise Bourbeau (author of ‘Your Body’s Telling You: Love Yourself’) says uterine fibroids are telling you that you need to deal with the fear you have surrounding birth or new beginnings, whether directly related to childbirth or the conception and nurturing of ideas and projects. “Determine whether the fear is justified in the moment. Decide whether to face your fear or be controlled by it. You alone will face the consequences. Realize that you answer, ultimately, to no one but yourself. Your life and the decisions you make regarding that life, belong only to you.”

There are many safe and effective natural solutions that have worked for other women in your circumstances. I encourage you to explore natural remedies for reducing the size of uterine fibroids such as herbs, applying castor oil packs, homeopathy, nutrition, cleansing, exercise and energy medicine techniques such as EFT and The Sedona Method. You have the power to decide how you want to treat your health challenges and whether you’ll use them to reach greater levels of personal satisfaction and enjoyment of your life!
