Uterine fibroids symptoms treatment can take various forms. Some women choose to take conventional drug or hormonal treatment, whereas other women might decide to go down the natural road, using holistic treatment.
If you just have a couple of small fibroids, then your symptoms might be so mild that they require no treatment at all. However, having several at once, or one or two larger fibroids can cause intolerable problems which can inhibit day to day activities and affect the quality of life.
Some of the common symptoms which women experience are heavy bleeding, pain and cramping, bloating and urinary problems. These can be managed successfully by using natural uterine fibroids symptoms treatment.
The pain and difficulties cause by heavy bleeding can be managed in a number of ways. Firstly, if you use tampons, then switch to sanitary napkins as tampons can encourage pain. Pain can also be helped by lying with your legs elevated (a pillow under the knees also helps). Heat therapy can also be very soothing-try a microwaveable heat pad, hot water bottle or warm bath. Exercise is also known to be a great pain reliever. Also it is probably the last thing you will feel like doing, it is surprising just how much better you will feel after a brisk walk.
Certain foods can also help to reduce bleeding and are good for uterine fibroids symptoms treatment. Lean, organic meats such as poultry, fish and red meats, coupled with beans, peas and nuts will help the body stem the bleeding. You can also consider taking a brewers yeast and iron supplement. Certain foods can bring a little pain relief and these include wholegrains, almonds, artichokes, tofu and soy. Some women also find that cutting out alcohol and caffeine can help.
