When the abdomen gets heavy

“I have a feeling of pressure in my abdomen,” “My periods are heavier and longer than before,” “I suffer from anemia.”

This or something similar is how women with fibroids experience their symptoms.

These benign tumors of the uterus form from muscle fibers, and more rarely from connective tissue fibers. If they are located directly under the lining of the uterus, they increase menstrual bleeding. Inside the uterine wall, they can press on the bladder and cause discomfort during urination and painful menstrual cramps. On the outside of the uterus, they are often not discovered until they have grown very large.

Fibroids are activated by female hormones, so they only develop during the childbearing years. About a quarter of all women are affected at some point in their lives.

How does Vedic Medicine view fibroids?

Myome from an Ayurvedic point of view

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, myome start with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which in the case of fibroids accumulate in the female genital tract. Stress and an unstable nervous system can act as amplifiers by upsetting hormonal balance.

However, according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so all fibroids are different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.

What can Ayurveda do for you?

In Vedic medicine, myome arte addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.

An integrated approach

Increasingly, patients are finding that conventional therapies alone are not enough.

They recognize that the path to recovery must take place at all levels. In the case of fibroids, for example, the focus can be on the elimination of toxins or the balancing of the nervous system. It is important to bring the natural regulatory principles back into a necessary balance. Nutritional recommendations, helpful exercises as well as special herbal mixtures – all put together especially for you – help you to lead a more conscious lifestyle. So that your natural self-healing powers can effectively mitigate the discomfort as well as the growth of the fibroids.
