Fibroid treatments have as their common goal to eradicate fibroids
in the uterus while preserving the uterus itself. (Hysterectomy is
the ultimative surgical treatment for fibroids, but at the cost that
many do not to want pay.) Medical doctors seem not to believe that
there exists anything that will cure uterine fibroids, so they go
through the motions of prescribing this or that, somehow hoping that
the patient will become fatigued with all the wrong approaches and
be made to ask for the elective hysterectomy herself.
Uterine fibroid is a tumor of muscles in the uterus. Another
name for them is myoma, which is short for the more technical
name -- leiomyoma. Women can endure an entire pregnancy or two with
uterine fibroids present, but there are cases in which they produce
heavy menstrual bleeding, pain and various others types of discomfort.
you naively add the notion of "surgery" to the notion of "uterine
fibroids", you end up thinking that the standard surgical way of
dealing with the fibroids would consist of cutting them out and
leaving the womb in place (the technical term for such an operation
is myomectomy). However, myomectomy is more complicated for the
surgeon to perform than hysterectomy, so when a surgeon talks about
surgery for uterine fibroids, he or she mainly thinks and/or proposes
straight hysterectomy. Trusting doctors, patients perform their
own leap of faith and head straight to hysterectomy, often unaware of many
other alternatives, be them surgical or alternative in nature.
Energy Healing Methods To Avoid Hysterectomy
Before hysterectomy, try everything else
herbal remedies and treatments,
Reiki and similar energies,
Su Jok etc.
Fibroid treatments can also be taken as a combination, especially
if you want to include "softer" energy healing methods such as
Reiki, flower remedies, and EFT. It should be noted, though,
that homeopathy and Su Jok can cure fibroids all on their own,
so if you want to try a Do It Yourself approach, while waiting
out for the official medicines to work, you can. To make things
even more interesting, many of the classical fibroid treatments
can be replicated on an energy level, so it certainly pays to learn
about all these possibilities. Herbal remedies can help you too,
but it seems that the most hope comes from using special combinations
of enzymes, that are geared to removing the fibroids

Surgical Fibroid Treatments
Myomectomy is taking only the fibroids out,
while preserving the uterus. The goal is to leave the possibility
of getting pregnant some time later. Unfortunately for millions of
women, myomectomy is a much more complicated operation as compared
to hysterectomy, so surgeons that get paid by operation, tend to suggest
hysterectomy as a shorther procedure for them. The
result is dozens and hundreds of thousands of unneeded
hysterectomis, especially in the USA, UK and the rest of the so-called
When there is too much bleeding and it does
not respond to any other medical approach, destroying the endometrium,
the inner lining of the uterus that actually bleeds, is a good idea.
The womb remains almost intact, the procedure is not long or bothersome
(as compared to a full hysterectomy, of course), but the possibility
of getting pregnant is destroyed forever.
