Ayurvedic treatment for Uterine Fibroids
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous (benign) tumors that develop in the womb. The uterine fibroids are also known as leiomyomas or myomas. They are normally benign growths of the muscle inside the uterus of women. These fibroids vary in size, position and number and thus, cause uterine enlargment. Endometrial polyps are abnormal tissue growths within the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on one or both ovaries that usually form during ovulation. There is a separate treatment for ovarian cysts on this page.
Fibroids can be correlated to 'mamsa arbuda', meaning abnormal growth in muscles and the connective tissues of the uterus. This abnormal growth generates excessive bleeding
The uterine fibroids normally fall in the category of kaphaja disorder, but it can also be caused by vata and pitta abnormalities. Thus, any treatment suggested, must be able to balance the tri-doshas and be sufficiently sustained over time to eradicate slow-moving kapha.
This package addresses the causes of hormone imbalance, healing the intestinal tract, increasing lymph flow while healing the uterus and stopping the bleeding, dietary changes to prevent reoccurance. We also recommend making an appointment to see the Vaidya to help dissolve the emotional causes of disease on the pageof this site called, Consultations.
Types of Fibroids
Fibroids are described by their location in the uterus: Subserosal fibroids- Fibroid that develops on the outside of the uterus
· Submucosal fibroids- Fibroids that develops under the surface of the uterine lining
· Myometrial fibroid-Fibroid that grows in the muscle wall of the uterus

The cause of uterine fibroids is unknown. However, their growth has been linked to the hormone estrogen. Other factors may include:
· Sex during menses
· Low thyroid function
· Accumulation of ama
· Suppression of urge for urination, or flatulence
· Hidden sense of grief and sadness associated with issues of maternity and conception
