Natural Treatments for Breast Fibroids?

My dear friend (who’s 25 years old) had a breast exam last year and was told she has a breast fibroid about an inch long. As she refuses to get radical treatment like surgery, she’s hoping to at least reduce if not eliminate the growth through alternative means such as nutrition, herbs, energy treatments (qigong, reiki, etc.), and others.

Maybe someone else out there has experience dealing with this condition?

Where I live, in Eastern Europe, there’s not the best patient awareness (i.e. doctors helping patients know more) about alternatives, and the info on the web is confusing to me and my friend.

Please, if you have information about this, let me know. We’re not looking for a prescription, simply helpful advice from others who’ve perhaps faced this themselves.

Thank you.

  • Hi Natalie, I know 3 therapy for this disease: it is Surgery, Dietary Therapy, and Medicinal Therapy.

    For your friend I have consider dietary therapy – considered to be quite effective for the treatment of breast fibroids. Doctors recommend the following nutritional therapy plan to control breast fibroids:
    * Your friend need switch over to a low-fat, vegetarian diet because a high-fat diet not only causes obesity, but also results in imbalanced oestrogen levels, which is the primary cause of the development of breast fibroids.
    * Your friend need start taking lots of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, and high fiber foods like apples. All these increase oestrogen excretion.
    Vitamin-B rich foods such as brown rice, wheat germ and wheat germ oil, and nutritional yeast are also beneficial.
    * Your friend need avoid taking caffeine foods like chocolate, carbonated sodas, concentrated starches like pastries and fatty dairy foods, hormone-laden meats and refined sugars.
    * Also need avoid fried, sugary and salty foods, especially smoked or preserved meats during your menstrual period.
    * Your friend need eat diuretic foods, like cucumbers and watermelons, and dark green leafy vegetables to neutralize and flush out the toxins.
    * And drink plenty of water every day.
    These not complex change on diet can destroy problems your friend, Doctors also most often recommend oral contraceptives to decrease symptoms of breast fibroids.
    If this treatments is not work for your friend, when the breast fibroids fail to disappear even after several attempts at removing the fluid, so exists is only one choice – Surgery. Surgery will involve removing the fibroid lumps from the breast.

  • I have this book called Prescriptions for Nutritional Healing by Phyllis A. Balch. It’s a guide to many herbs and illnesses and how to alleviate them with herbs. Anyway, it says to take Co-Q 10 (as directed to remove toxins), primrose oil (1500 mg daily to diminish size), kelp (1500-2000 mg daily to improve condition), vitamins A (15000 IU daily to help the ducts carry toxins from the breast), E (200 IU daily to protect breast tissue), B-complex (50 mg 3 times daily with meals for fluid balance and hormone regulation)

  • I live in the US. we have good health care assuming you can afford it. Otherwise…well, I won’t open that can of worms. Anyway. I am 26. Last summer I had to have surgery to remove a breast fibroid similar to your friend’s. Before surgery, I tried a number of things. My doctor said caffeine can cause them, so I cut back my intake. She also said Vitamin E capsules might help, so I took them daily. She also said to get measured for a bra, wearing a good one that fits properly can help (I thought I wore a C…who knew I needed a D?). They didn’t really work, and it was kind of creeping me out when I touched it. It started to become painful, & kept growing. So finally I decided to have it surgically removed. Since she is young like me, she probably has dense breast tissue…this makes the surgery a little more painful. Apparently some older women with less dense breasts are back to work the next day. It took me about 10 days to fully recover. I have a bit of a scar, but it will eventually fade. Plus my boyfriend thinks it looks kinda punk & hot…who knew? This website might help, and since they are located in the UK, I thought it would be better suited for you (instead of the US). Hope it helps…good luck!
