Fibroid tumors are a common condition that affects a large amount of women. The pain and discomfort that accompanies fibroids severely alters your lifestyle. After years of being stricken with the pain of fibroids, I finally decided to throw the pain medicine away and try something healthy. I found a few remedies to help soothe the pain and keep me on track during that time of the month.
Soak away the pain
There is nothing more soothing than having your feet soaking in warm, soothing water. Place a ½ cup of Epsom Salt in a basin of warm water and this will help soften your feet while you soak your pain away. When you soak your feet in warm water, it helps you relax your muscles. Place a heating pad around your abdomen, place your feet in the warm water, and relax.
Aromatherapy is a soothing resource when struggling with the pain, anxiety, and depression that can be a side-effect of fibroid. The pain and discomfort of fibroid symptoms can cause a rise in depression and anxiety. Aromatherapy can help. Mix a few drops of lemon essential oil and almond oil, pour this mixture into an oil burner, and allow the soothing citrus scent to relax your mind.
You don’t have to be a highly spiritual person to meditate. Mediation has many unique health benefits that can help lower your blood pressure, reduce anxiety and stress. Meditation can also be used to channel the mind in a positive direction. Give it a try. I was skeptical at first, but it actually worked for me.
Tea, Tea, and More Tea
Marshmallow Root Tea – Marshmallow root is an herb indigenous to northern Europe. Marshmallow root can be boiled with water and steeped as a tea. This tea will help not only soothe the body, but it will also help reduce inflammation. It also helps with constipation, which is also a major complication associated with fibroid tumors.
Peppermint Tea – Peppermint tea gives you the best of both worlds: a soothing warm flavor of tea and the soothing aromatherapy scent of peppermint. Who could ask for more?
Evening Primrose Oil
Evening Primrose Oil has many different benefits that could improve the quality of your life and help you manage your life with Fibroid tumors. Evening Primrose Oil contains fatty acids that are often depleted in the body during the menstrual cycle. If you take evening primrose oil internally, it may improve the bothersome symptoms of Fibroid tumors. Fatty acids also decrease inflammation in the body, which is generally a side effect of fibroid tumors.
