Fibroids Q&A

What are fibroids?

Fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop on the lining of the uterus. These growths typically develop in adolescent girls and adult women of childbearing age and may naturally shrink after the transition to menopause.

The root cause of fibroids isn’t well understood, but your genetic history can play a role. You may also be at a greater risk for these abnormal uterine growths if you have an imbalance in your estrogen or progesterone hormones.

Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness offers holistic therapies, including acupuncture, to relieve the pain and other symptoms fibroids can cause. The providers also utilize Chinese herbs and supplements to shrink fibroid tissue and restore your reproductive health.

When should I seek treatment for fibroids?

For some women, fibroids can grow large enough to cause pelvic pain, infertility, and uterine deformities.

You can schedule a fibroid evaluation at Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness if you experience reproductive complications or symptoms like:

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Periods that last longer than a week
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain during sex

The wellness specialists learn more about your medical history, lifestyle, and diet to create a treatment plan for your needs. They may recommend routine acupuncture treatments to address fibroids and the symptoms they cause.

How does acupuncture treat fibroids?

Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners use acupuncture to restore blood flow and life’s energy force (qi) throughout the body in the treatment of fibroids.

The acupuncture techniques the Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness providers use can reduce the growth of abnormal cells that contribute to fibroids. Treatment involves the insertion of fine needles into different points (meridians) of the body to stimulate blood circulation, relieve pain, and promote a deep sense of relaxation.

The specialists also use Chinese herbs and supplements in combination with acupuncture therapy to restore your reproductive health. Certain herbs are effective at shrinking fibroid tissue. Supplements are also available to restore hormone balance to regulate your periods and reduce the risk factors for additional fibroids.

If you have very large fibroids, you may find that the treatment you receive helps you avoid surgery.
