Maitake KBG beets ,Blackstrap Molasses and Stinging Nettle

I only use these natural ways in that fight to slow down my fibroids from growing up because it's the only natural food that there are some small studies or conclusions . On the other hand I am very angry with these informations that some specialists(!) write on a discussion board of a big supplement American company that claims that it's products work naturally!They have a link concerning studies about the effectiveness of their product,but when I tried to find shrinkage rates like on any other official study it was impossible!I also spend my money to try that product but it was a complete failure conserning fibroids treatment.That is very personal and every woman chooses something she believes in.So the decision is yours.I don't have shrinkage but I estimate that my fibroids do not grow up rapidly,like they did in some other friends of mine that did't take supplements and ate meat.I collected the articles that I've read.I do not recommend anything,I just like that some people get some information like I did.

A study reported treatment of 110 women with fibroids smaller than 10 cm. (4.5 inches) with the Chinese herbal medicine Kuei-chih-fu-ling-wan. Fifteen of the 110 (14%) women requested and had a hysterectomy during the study. However, fibroids went away in 19% of the other women, got smaller in 43%, did not change in 34% and grew in 4%. Heavy bleeding improved in 95% and severe cramping improved in 94%. The Chinese Medicine doctor with whom I work tells me that he has success with small fibroids (less than 2 inches), but not with fibroids larger than that. So, this treatment may work for women with small fibroids who wish to prevent the fibroids from growing and causing more symptoms. In any case, it is important to work with a reputable alternative medicine practitioner who can direct your care.

Abram Ber, M.D., a homeopathic physician practicing orthomolecular medicine in Scottsdale, Ariz., has used Maitake supplements in his practice for quite some time.
Abram Ber, has been using Maitake mushroom tablets for two years to treat a number of conditions. Using independent ultrasound results as a measure of progress, Dr. Ber gave six patients with uterine fibroids maitake mushroom tablets and found substantial reduction of the fibroids six months to one year after beginning Maitake treatment.
In general, Dr. Ber's treatment program is two tablets(or 2 caplets{500mg}) x3 times a day (3 grams) with a range of 4-8 grams, depending on the size of the individual patient
Maitake's ability to actually shrink fibroids in the uterus. Many of Ber's patients, after taking Maitake supplements for six months to one year, showed such an improvement in the size of their fibroids that surgery was deemed unnecessary.

BEETS
The consumption of beets combined with molasses is thought by Dominican healers to shrink fibroids or to strengthen and fortify the uterus after the fibroid had been drained from the body. The possible nutritional and cultural justification for using beets and molasses in Dominican ethnomedicine was rationalized. Beets contain high levels of soluble and insoluble fibre, which could theoretically affect oestrogen levels. The total dietary fibre in raw beets is 2.8 g/100 g, which translates into 7.62 g for a 2-cup serving, or approximately 30% of the daily value based on a 2000-cal diet. A high dietary intake of beetroot could conceivably reduce endogenous oestrogen levels through increased intake of fibre. Beets are extremely high in carotenoids, which might conceivably inhibit the growth of fibroids. However, no clinical trials have tested carotenoids or retinoic acid in the treatment of fibroids. In addition, beets might serve as treatment for iron deficiency, especially when combined with molasses. Boiled beetroots contain 1.55 mg of iron per tablespoon. A "potion" for fibroids containing 2 cups of beet juice with 2 tablespoons of molasses would provide approximately 12.6 mg of iron, or approximately 70% of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance for premenopausal women. In populations deficient in both vitamin A [retinol] and iron, combining both supplements is more effective for treating iron deficiency anaemia than iron alone.

Stinging Nettle

It's a miracle for me!It regulated my menstrual bleeding in an amazing point.I read that it shrings fibroids by it's lignans but I do not know if that's true.I am taking 3 capsules 1-2 hours when it seems that things are difficult and...I feel like a bird!
