In this post, I wanted to show the up to date progress results I've experienced using Acupuncture to shrink my fibroids. It's been a year and three months since I've first begun Acupuncture. In addition, I began taking Iodine (liquid kelp) every two to three days, Vitamins B Complex, E, D, Panax Ginseng and Milk Thistle. The Doctor also started me back on the Xue Fu Zhu Yu Wan herbals, which I don't take during menstruation.
The lower portion of my abdomen which faces the camera is the area where the last major mass of fibroids is located, and has been a bit stubborn and slow in deteriorating. However, it gets measurably softer after each session. Although I have been putting on a little weight overall, the size of my abdomen isn't increasing.
Thus far, the Acupuncture has significantly reduced the size of my large fibroid tumors. At the onset of the sessions, my Doctor was honest and told me he hadn't ever treated anyone with fibroids the size of mine. However, my body/the fibroids responded to the Moxibustion Acupuncture technique within the first two weeks, and has continued to respond up to this day.
Some other herbal supplements that I am currently researching to speed up the rate at which my fibroids are shrinking include: Dong Quai, Red Clover and Hemp Oil. These three supplements have come up frequently in some things I've read regarding fibroids as of late, and I figured it wouldn't hurt to do some investigation on their affects on shrinking/dissolving fibroids.....stay tuned.
