For over 2000 years Chinese medicine has been treating uterine fibrois and we at Health Synergy have formulated an effective Fibroid treatment plan.
The first descriptions of uterine fibroids in the Chinese literature was in the Ling Shu (ca. 100 B.C.), which defined shijia, a stony tumor (shi = stone; jia = mass).
Uterine fibroids also known as uterine myoma, leioma, fibroma, fibromyoma, or hysteromyoma are quite common and are benign (non cancerous) growths of smooth muscle tissue in the uterine wall. These fibroid masses occur in about 20% of women over the age of 20 and about 40% of woman between ages 35 and 45. However, fibroids usually go unnoticed until they grow during early menopause stages and sometimes during pregnancy. This can suggest high progesterone levels will increase fibroid(s) and as progesterone levels decrease fibroid(s) will shrink.
When fibroids push into the uterine cavity, they can lead to infertility or miscarriages. The strategy for non-surgical treatment is to limit the size and symptoms of the fibroid(s) until spontaneous shrinkage occurs with menopause, typically just a few years after the initial diagnosis.
Fibroids are viewed congested mass of stagnated blood in Chinese medicine. This simply means that the blood is not moving as freely and begins to accumulate in places where it shouldn’t to form solid masses. Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine are very effective at moving blood and increasing the circulation of blood in the uterus in order to resolve the fibroid masses.
Only 10-20% of fibroid cases require surgery; interventions such as Chinese medicine, lifestye and diet chance is very effective and will usually remove the need for surgery especially if treated early.
