In search of natural treatments

About

I’ve been treating my fibroids naturally for the past two years. During this time, I’ve had setbacks, made major discoveries, and have made important changes to my diet. I’m constantly in search of new information via clinical trials and I’m always experimenting. More importantly however, is that I’ve learned to listen to my body and treat it with the respect and care it deserves.

My goal is to share with you the knowledge I have gained over the last two years that have helped me to eliminate the symptoms of fibroids. I will share  information about current research, diet, and exercise.

    I was wondering what your thoughts were on using progesterone cream. Have you tried it?

    And thanks for all the information that you’ve shared. I’m with you girl – same situation, same confusion, same frustration. Please share more!

  2. Thank you for your comment and no, I’ve never tried progesterone. Funny you should ask though, as I just read a few papers on the topic. I’ve also looked at the results of clinical trials and have read patients’ experiences and so far, I remain unconvinced. However, I’m more interested in figuring out what caused the fibroids to grow in the first place and that is where my research has lead me.

    If you are really interested in progesterone, I think that this is a decision you and your doctor should make..

    Done any research on vitamin A Interesting story in the link above, and interesting comments.

    I have used progesterone, and it has been helpful to me for PMS symptoms. Really best to use only if you need it, obviously.

  4. Hello,
    It’s comforting to know im not alone in this fluctuating uterus size. I can totally relate to what you said, one moment you think your uterus shrunk, next moment it swells,, i mean , for me, sometimes it need not be a certain phase,, though of course premenstrually i can feel my uterus swell, then few days after period, subside, then swell during ovulation, then subside a bit after ovulation,, then start to swell again till next menses.
    Nowadays, i can even have fluctuating uterus size in a day, like morning, afternoon, and night are all different.
    So, i was thinking could the hormones be fluctuating in a day too?
    Im in my early 40s, and im just wondering could it be also perimenopause??

    And what do you think of ppl saying fibroids are caused by excess estrogen?
    If in that case, why do pregnant ppl whose progesterone is so much raised , have their fibroids grow? and also why premenstually, when progesterone is supposed to rise after ovulation, the uterus swells?
    So, this makes me think these 2 hormones (estrogen n progesterone) must be balanced. Excess progesterone also may make fibroids grow.
    What do you think??

  5. Hello May,

    Thanks for your comment. After years of fibroid research, here’s a few things I’ve discovered that will reduce the bloating:

    •Get your vitamin D level checked, you are probably deficient
    •Make sure your iron levels are normal
    •You should be consuming at least 1000 mg (1 g) of calcium per day, preferably from food
    •Magnesium is also important – daily requirement is 320 mg. Pumpkin seeds are a very good source, also blackstrap molasses – there are others
    •Vitamin C and Fiber are also important. Again, you should be getting these from food
    •Finally, probiotics is your friend – start eating sauerkraut, or maybe kimchee. Natto and kefir are also pretty good

    The point of all this is to strengthen your immune system through food.

    Good luck!
