Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are very common and are not dangerous in and of themselves. However, if you suffer from fibroids you know full well that theses benign growths can cause excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and frequent urination. Uterine fibroids can also interfere with fertility by creating hormonal imbalances or by obstructing the uterus so that an embryo cannot survive.

Western treatments for fibroids — hormone therapy (such as the birth control pill), myomectomy (surgical removal of the fibroids), hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus and fibroids) — do not cure the condition and don’t prevent their recurrence. Most of these treatments also make it difficult to conceive.

How I can help with acupuncture

What makes acupuncture treatment different from other therapies is that it acts by correcting the hormonal imbalances that cause fibroid formation and promoting the body’s self regulatory mechanisms. Acupuncture treatment for fibroids can lessen symptoms and decrease fibroid size, all while facilitating hormonal balance and actually enhancing fertility. By treating the root cause of fibroid formation, acupuncture can help the body heal itself and help you to conceive naturally.

In the event that fibroids are extremely large or numerous, surgery may be necessary. In such cases, acupuncture treatment can promote fast recovery from surgery and prevent future fibroids.

I work with your gynecologist to monitor treatment results. You will likely experience symptom relief within one month and a significant reductions in fibroid size within three to six menstrual cycles.
