Herbal Remedies for Uterine Cysts
Uterine fibroid cysts are benign tumors in the smooth muscle of the uterus. Their cause is unknown, but they are thought to enlarge with increased levels of estrogen, as in oral contraceptives or pregnancy.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, uterine fibroids are said to be caused by a stagnation of blood and vital energy. Herbal remedies include hormone regulators, blood-moving herbs, and local immune stimulants. Adjuvant Therapy: Castor oil packs, 30-40 minutes each evening, and sitz baths (sitting in an alternating hot, 4 minutes, with cold, 1 minute bath for 4-5 rounds each day). Acupuncture treatments with moxibustion can also be valuable.
