Uterine fibroids are growths in your uterus. They’re also called: 

Benign tumors

uterine leiomyomas


While fibroids aren’t cancerous or life-threatening, they can sometimes cause health problems.Fibroids range in size to as small as a seed to larger than a grapefruit. You can have one fibroid or multiple growths.One  may not have any symptoms at all. Most women don’t know they have this condition.

Signs and symptoms depend on the size, location, and number of fibroids. One may experience:

periods that last longer than a week

heavy menstrual bleeding

spotting or bleeding between periods

pelvic pressure or pain

backache or leg pain

frequent urination

difficulty emptying your bladder

Types of fibroids.

Fibroids can grow in any part of your uterus. They are named by where they grow:

intramural fibroids grow inside the uterus walls

submucosal fibroids grow into the hollow cavity of your uterus

subserosal fibroids grow out of the surface of your uterus

Natural treatment of fibroids.

Fibroids typically grow slowly or not at all. In many cases, they shrink on their own, especially after menopause.

In moderate to severe cases where symptoms are bothersome, worsening, or not improved with medication, fibroids may be treated with surgery or ultrasound therapy. Surgery may involve removing just the fibroids or your entire uterus.

UFB-10  and Shatavari are  used to slow fibroid growth and treat symptoms. This formula contains several herbs that act to shrink uterine fibroids, balance hormone levels, and keep your uterus healthy


Your daily diet is a very important factor in treating fibroids. The right nutrition can help you maintain a healthy weight and reduce your risk. Certain foods can also help ease symptoms.

Foods to avoid

According to clinical studies, eating too much red meat increases your risk of uterine fibroids. Drinking alcohol also increases your risk.

Eating excess refined carbohydrates and sugary foods may trigger or worsen fibroids. These foods raise blood sugar levels. This causes your body to produce too much insulin hormone. Avoid or restrict simple refined carbohydrates like:

white rice, pasta, and flour

soda and other sugary drinks

corn syrup

boxed cereals

baked goods (cakes, cookies, doughnuts)

potato chips



Foods to eat.

Fiber-rich unprocessed foods help:

curb your appetite

balance hormones

prevent excess weight gain

Brightly coloured foods such as fruits and vegetables also help reduce inflammation and lower your risk for fibroids.

Add these whole foods to your daily diet:

raw and cooked vegetables and fruit

dried fruit

whole grains

brown rice

lentils and beans

whole grain bread and pasta



fresh and dried herbs
