Has Anyone Heard Of Any Herbal Remedies To Shrink Fibroids?

Hello. Has anyone tried or heard of herbal or natural remedies to decrease the size of fibroids?

Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi, I was researching this subject also.
Do a ****** search of fibroids, and you will run into a supplement called Neprinol, they actually have pics of a fibroid that has shrunk from this therapy. Please let me know how you make out.

Have a nice day

Re: Fibroids - forget herbs? I would.

I had fibroids before I had a hysterectomy. Fibroids are fed by Estrogen, so my GYN told me. As you get older and produce less estrogen, the fibroids shrink. My problem was that they grew outside of the uterus, which can be a problem, and they were in my case. So, I don't know that you can get anythng herbal to shrink the fibroids. I know that these days they can just take out the fibroids and I believe the physician can also give you a drug ( GnRH Agonists ) but these do have side effects. Fibroids account for about 2 out of every 3 hysterectomies done in the United States. I would stay in touch with a physician on these fibroids and not play around with herbs, since the fibroids can cause problems when they grow large, etc.
