Chinese medicine for the treatment of fibroids does not just mean a prescription of certain Chinese medicinal herbs that when taken or used, will lead to a complete resolution of the fibroids. Chinese medicine is a treatment that is anchored on the notion that the entire body of a person needs to be balanced; if the body experiences any imbalance, it will lead to disease and/or pain which may manifest in various ways, depending on what organ(s) is (are) affected.

This is a belief that is widely held by most Western holistic practitioners who wholeheartedly believe that perceiving and treating the body as a whole is the only way to the address and cure the symptoms and underlying cause of uterine fibroids.

Fibroid treatment using Chinese medicine targets the entire body. It uses a multifaceted approach and its objective is to restore balance the physical elements and the mind. The treatment is also aimed at helping the person relax, improving her emotional well-being, boosting her immune system, detoxifying her body and recommending to her a healthy and highly-nutritious diet. Herbal supplementation is recommended to help relieve certain fibroid symptoms.

Eating a healthy diet is one of the important aspects of Chinese medicine for fibroid treatment. Try not to overeat. Consume the recommended daily calorie intake for your height and consume only small portions organic lean meats. Avoid meat products, such as sausages. Instead, eat a lot of fresh vegetables (especially dark green vegetables) and fruits. Stay away from white rice, white bread sugars and other processed carbohydrates. Avoid also dairy, saturated fats, and alcohol. Drink a minimum of two liters of clean water each day.

Dates, tofu, cherries, and walnuts are also great foods to eat. Chinese medicine practitioners will recommend thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil, and saffron.
