Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids, noncancerous tumors that grow on or within the muscles of the uterus, vary in size, ranging from as small as a walnut to as large as a cantaloupe or even larger. They can present as either a single large tumor or a cluster of smaller ones.

Fibroids are the leading cause of hysterectomies among American women. Between two to four out of every ten women aged 35 or older experience fibroid tumors. Studies indicate that African-American women are more likely to develop uterine fibroids than women of other ethnic backgrounds, with findings suggesting that up to eight out of ten African-American women may eventually develop these growths.

The specific causes of uterine fibroids remain unknown, but their growth is often influenced by estrogens, particularly estradiol. It’s important to note that fibroid tumors are typically noncancerous. They represent a growth or swelling, not a malignancy or cancer. Malignant fibroids are extremely rare, accounting for less than 0.1% of all cases.

Small fibroids may resolve on their own. Larger fibroids, although more challenging to manage, can often be controlled using natural measures.

Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Can Shrink Fibroids

Chinese medicine asserts that a healthy woman’s menstrual cycles should be regular and devoid of pain. According to Eastern medicine, fibroids stem from blood that does not circulate freely through the body’s channels, resulting in a darker, more clotted menstrual flow and a detrimental impact on the body’s immune system.

In conjunction with acupuncture treatment, medicinal herbs are frequently prescribed to alleviate blood and energy stagnation. Chinese medicine has reported substantial success in fibroid treatment. There is evidence suggesting that fibroids can either decrease in size or completely disappear, accompanied by an improvement in some menstrual symptoms.
