Uterine fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) tumors of the uterus that may or may not affect your daily life. Many women who have fibroids never know they do because the fibroids are small or otherwise not causing symptoms. In other women, however, the fibroids can cause heavy bleeding, irregular bleeding, and if large, may compress other nearby organs such as your bladder or intestines.
As with any hormonal imbalance, our naturopathic doctors take an individualized approach to your care. Looking at how your body metabolizes and processes hormones helps us create a personalized natural plan for you. Restoring balance to your system is the main goal that can help reduce symptoms and sometimes the size of uterine fibroids.
