Healthy Foods to Get Rid of Fibroids

Conventional treatment for fibroids often leaves many feeling disillusioned as very often, women are given options which are disappointing to say the least. Surgery and drug treatment will not cure fibroids permanently as they cannot eliminate what is causing them in the first place. This often leads to doctors recommending "watchful waiting" as they know that even after treatment fibroids are likely to regrow. So although it is often thought that doctors are not being particularly helpful, the truth is that their options are limited.

There are many different natural ways of treating fibroids and once diagnosed, many women start looking round to see which is considered the best. The truth is that many treatments will give some symptomatic relief, but there is only one way to really help fibroids, and that is by using a mulitfaceted treatment which combines most of the popular ones, in the right kind of order and dismisses those which are ineffective.
