Fibroids TCM Natural Remedy
Fibroids, also known as uterine fibroids or leiomyomas, are non-cancerous growths that develop in the uterus. They are composed of smooth muscle tissue and can vary in size from small to large. Fibroids are most commonly diagnosed in women between the ages of 30 and 50.
Symptoms of fibroids may include:
Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding
Pelvic pain or pressure
Pain during sex
Frequent urination or difficulty emptying the bladder
Constipation or difficulty emptying the bowels
Back pain or leg pain
Infertility or miscarriage
The exact cause of fibroids is not fully understood in Western medicine. It is believed that they are influenced by hormonal factors, specifically Estrogen, and Progesterone.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, the development of fibroids is thought to be due to the accumulation of Qi and blood stagnation in the body.
The smooth flow of Qi through meridians is very important to our health. When the flow of Qi is disrupted or blocked, it can lead to various health problems, including the development of masses such as fibroids.
Blood stagnation refers to a blockage or restriction of the flow of blood in the body. It can be caused by various factors, including emotional stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and other lifestyle factors. When blood stagnation occurs, the flow of Qi can also be affected, leading to further blockages and imbalances in the body.
Acupuncture/TCM treatment for fibroids will focus on promoting the flow of Qi and blood in the affected areas, clearing any blockages, and addressing any underlying emotional or lifestyle factors that may be contributing to the condition. By addressing the underlying imbalances, this natural remedy will help balance the body's Qi and promote the circulation of blood to reduce the size of the fibroids and alleviate symptoms.
