Uterine Fibroids Treatment in Ayurveda
Fibroids are muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus (womb). Fibroids are almost always benign (non cancerous). Not all women with fibroids have symptoms. Women who do have symptoms often find fibroids hard to live with. Some have pain and heavy menstrual bleeding causing immense discomfort. Other symptoms may include increased urination, painful intercourse, swollen abdomen, heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, increased menstrual cramps etc. SKK Ayurveda And Panchakarma, one of the best Fibroid Treatment Clinics in Delhi, India, provides natural treatment for all types of Fibroids with effective ayurvedic methods.
According to ayurveda, fibroids are growths in mamsa dhatu of the uterus. According to ancient texts, mamsarbuda means growth in muscles and connective tissue. Fibroid often manifests itself as excessive bleeding and hence this should be treated as 'Yonivyapad' (a group of disorders related to the female reproductive system).
Uterine fibroids are considered mostly a kapha-accumulation disorder, but often involve pitta and vata displacements also, in which case the patient may be considered as pre-cancerous. Therefore, treatment must be deep-acting to balance the tri-dosha and must be sufficiently sustained over time to eradicate slow-moving kapha.The fibroids can be dissolved by diet, lifestyle changes and Yoga .
In this process, medication is administered in smaller doses than usual. The same medicaments are given to the patients when they are hungry. The core objective is to pacify the doshas instead of expelling them
The Pranayama helps Breathing exercises, or pranayamas, are a good way to relieve stress naturally. Dr. Rani Gupta recommends a few minutes of Nadi Shodhan (alternate nostril breathing) and Bhramari (bee pranayama) daily for a few minutes for women suffering with uterine fibroids. Through the medium of breath, these pranayamas help release stress in the mind.
Cruciferous vegetables help the liver detox. Broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, kale, turnips, watercress, radish and arugula are all great choices. Avoid overcooking these vegetables so that they retain most of their nutrients.
