6 Natural Remedies To Help Get Rid Of Fibroadenomas

boob-magnify

October is National Breast Cancer Month and we want you all to know that there are natural ways to fight breast cancer. Last year we had several articles about how to perform a self-checkup, and why thermography is better than mammograms. This year we want to give you some information about Fibroadenomas, which not every woman may know about.

 

What Are Fibroadenomas?

Discovering a lump on your breast can be a terrifying experience. Thoughts of breast cancer start circulating and you break out in a panic. Not all lumps or tumors are necessarily cancerous, though. A common type of noncancerous (benign) tumor is known as a fibroadenoma. Even though fibroadenomas are not life threatening, they may still require some sort of treatment. They are most commonly found in young women and tend to shrink or disappear with no treatment, especially after menopause. Usually 1-2 centimeters in size, they don’t tend to cause pain; rather, one can feel like a small marble under the skin.

 

What Causes Fibroadenomas?

The exact cause of fibroadenomas is uncertain, but health professionals believe that hormones such as estrogen may play a role in the development and growth. Other professionals attribute the development of fibroadenomas in young women under the age of 20 to oral contraceptives, as they can alter the hormonal balance. Some other causes are listed below:

  • During pregnancy
  • Oral contraceptives (taken before age 20)
  • Certain foods (such as stimulants)
  • Hormonal imbalance

 

Characteristics Of Fibroadenomas:

  • Easily moved
  • Firm or rubbery
  • Round and with smooth borders
  • Painless

 

Natural Remedies:

  • Since some experts believe that certain stimulants like coffee, soft drinks, tea, or chocolate may lead to the development of fibroadenomas, it may be beneficial to avoid these foods. There is no scientific evidence to support the fact that avoiding these foods may decrease breast symptoms, but you may want to experiment if you have food sensitivities.
  • Related to diet, it is beneficial to avoid meat, as most commercial meats contain added hormones that can alter the hormonal balance in a woman. Try switching to a more plant-based lifestyle, where the focus is on organic fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole grains.
  • Iodine deficiency may play a role in fibroadenoma development. When the body is low in iodine, breast tissue can become more sensitive to estrogen, thus causing fibroadenoma growth. Try eating iodine-rich foods like cranberries, bananas, prunes, green beans, strawberries, or sea vegetables like kelp, dulse, or alaria.
  • Since too much estrogen can lead to the growth of fibroadenomas, it may be beneficial to perform a liver detox to rid the body of excess androgens and estrogens. You can also take a natural B-vitamin complex supplement because it has antioxidants that work to regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce excess androgens in the adrenal glands.
  • Some herbs are beneficial for regulating hormones in the body. Try experimenting with milk thistle, evening primrose oil, false unicorn root, or paeonia to help regulate hormones.
  • Stress or sleep deprivation can affect fibroadenomas in a negative way, which is why it is paramount to keep stress levels down. To help naturally lower stress, you may want to try participating in stress-relieving techniques such as yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, deep breathing, or acupuncture. Acupuncture can be especially helpful because it helps to improve circulation and establish healthy chi within the body.

    Q: Hi. I'm a 39 year old female who had a lump in her breast removed but it came back six months later. So I tried a poultice for three days on it and I don't know what went wrong. Now it"s like my whole lymphatic system leading to my breast is shut off. There is swelling and hardness of my tissue in my breast. I went to a naturopath doctor who said that it wasn't cancer but did not give me any solution to my problem. This has been going on now for three months and I'm very much in distress but I don't want to go to a conventional doctor to have my breast removed. Is there any natural remedy for me?

    A:

    I'm working on a new breast care article at present. Perform the Full Body Detox and rub on our FEMALE BREAST OILsimultaneously. Drinking FEMALE HEALTH TEA is also ideal. Hang in there and think positive. You'll be alright, as long as you believe you will.

    Q: My daughter, who is 11 yrs old found a 1cm lump in her left breast 2wks ago. She was referred to a specialist and of course they want to surgically remove the lump. I let a co-worker scan the lump and they think it is a non-cancerous fibroandroma (I do ultrasound myself) and I saw a couple of cysts around the area as well. Of course I don't want the surgery for my daughter. Do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of all the abnormalities herbally? Maybe Yellow Dock tea, but I am concerned about her young age. Maybe a light detox. She started her period already at 11yrs old. Most healthcare professionals say fibroandromas are normal at this age when they begin their cycle due to the hormonal changes. I know better. My daughter drinks about 4-5 cups of purified water (aquavie machine) a day, no red meat, just chicken. Sneaks candy from school and little desserts at home maybe say 4 cookies a day. She gets sugar from natural OJ and Ocean Spray cranberry juice though. I am working on getting her off of sugar completely but it is a challenge. I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 years and am slowly going raw. Always seeking more knowledge. Also could there be a lack of something in her diet? My daughter is lazy and never works out play outside consistently (5'7" and 143lbs) she is tall for her age and is sliming her stomach down almost unnoticeable just a little pudge left. 1 day of PE in the schools. I am yust trying to paint the picture and give you her history.

    A:

    HAVE THE CHILD PERFORM THE CHILDREN’S DETOX EVERY 3 MONTHS. I WOULD ALSO HAVE HER DRINK THE : DETOX TEA AS WELL (EVERY DAY, ONE CUP). SOUNDS LIKE YOU ALSO NEED TO WORK ON KEEPING THE CHILD'S COLON MOVING CONSISTENTLY AS WELL. THROUGH MODIFIED DIET AND NUTRITION THE LUMP CAN DISSOLVE ON IT'S OWN. HOWEVER, DISCIPLINE IS KEY HERE!

    Q: Dear Sir, I was told that you were going to be sending me an email about my situation. I've wrote you a few times giving you bits and pieces of information it seems. I was asking one of your representatives about surgery and from the information I gave him he seems to think that I didn't give you all the information that I should have. Well about 13 years ago a lump formed in my breast after my 4th child was born. For years it's just been there. In 2005, after a mammogram they found calcifications in my breast. They did a biopsy and it came back fine. Six months later they decided that they wanted to remove the lump and when they did they found a small tumor. Since then I've taken herbs and God completely healed me. Well after another six months the lump came back but I didn't want any more surgery so I looked up poultice in my "Back to Eden" book and found a poultice that I used. I mixed flax seed meal, yellow corn meal, and funnelgreek tea together and left the poultice on my breast overnight for three nights. My breast began to get sensitive so I stopped using it. About a week later I noticed that the ducted around my nipple was indented, soon after that my nipple itself went inward, then after that I noticed what I thought was another lump in my breast but over a short period of time the lump extended from my armpit to my nipple. Now that whole area is hard and red. I got an ultrasound done and it revealed that I have swelling and cystic form in my breast. They want to do a biopsy but I am against it from what happened last time. Now I have pain in my arm also and at night I can barely sleep. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do except maybe go ahead and let me cut my breast. I have started your Detox program and I know it's working on my body but I don't want if it's doing anything for my swollen tissue inside my breast. I have lost my concentration because I'm constantly reminded about my breast because of the pain. I am a full time student but I'm thinking about dropping out of my classes until this issue is resolved because I can't focus on anything but the pain right now. I went a different doctor on 10/27/08 and they did a cvc (whatever that is) looking for an infection inside my body. The test came back normal, but my scheduled ultrasound is not for another week and I've told them that I'm in pain and need something done now. But they said that's the first available time.

    A:

    It appears the pain is just too unbearable for you and as such you may have to give in to the surgery in order to get immediate but short term relief. I had a friend who experienced what you experienced and the pain was so unbearable she couldn't sleep. I felt for her and I feel for you. I think you must do what is necessary for elimination or reduction of pain first and foremost. The FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is helping your swollen tissues, but it seems you mind is so distracted that you are in doubt mode and doubt is the subconscious will to fail. If you know you can't do what you need to do (naturally) to deal with this situation, do what you must for present day relief. You have free will here, Beloved! Please use FEMALE BREAST OIL and Drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA during your FBD.

    Q: I am loving my FULL BODY DETOX. I have realized that I am not as disciplined as I previously thought. Having to make the wonderful changes you stated to return to optimum health has been a trial. I have started over several times. I just hate taking pills...I can smell them before opening the bottle Anyway the doctor said they found Pre cancerous cells in my breast and suggested I have a mire prior to having the cells removed (I have absolutely no intentions of having the butchers cut on me) please share with me your thoughts on these procedures....I bypassed Ramadan to do the FULL BODY DETOXand I'm planning to start the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. afterwards. However, I did allow them to perform the breast ultrasound and mammogram. I had a breast biopsy and that's when they found the pre-cancer cells I immediately started TBC. There is cancer in my family history on my mother's side. Also on a different note I love the videos on you tube. How can I send them to my email to share with others that I know i.e... toxic kitchen, toxic bedroom etc..Thank you and may God always bless you, your family and all those who work at dherbs and supporters.

    A:

    Precancerous cells? LOL!!! This is a fraud to scare people (women) and it works too! Pre cancerous cells means PRE = BEFORE, cancerous cells. Precancerous cells are normal cells and thus there's no need to worry. This is just an excuse to incite fear in you and have you allow them to put you on drugs and/or perform surgery. If the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is too much for you, order 6 bottles of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD and take 5 capsules every 2-3 hours for 20-days following the food/dietary regimen of the FBD! Just keep doing what you're doing!

    Q: I was diagnosed with breast cancer about 18 months ago and I've been treating the tumor wholistically with no chemo or radiation. The tumor has gradually gotten smaller but I'm concerned that the progress could be improved if my diet was better. I get conflicting information about eating fruits while trying to maintain a high alkaline diet. Should people healing cancer eat fruit?

    A:

    Fruits are predominantly alkaline but most warnings about fruit while having cancer stems from the sugars in fruit which cancer can thrive in which is why many healers recommend vegetables instead of fruits. All live foods are good for you when there is cancer because live foods have enzymes.

    Q: I recently ordered the Female Package as well as the Fibroid buster. While I trust your company and its products, I realize that everyone is different and I feel the need to address an issue. I have been doing some research that gave me warnings against red clover, stating that it is an herb that can actually stimulate estrogen receptor positive breast cancer cells to grow. While I have no reason to believe that I have positive BC cells in my body, I would like to take every possible precaution to assure I am doing the right things. I have taken every measure to eliminate pharmaceutical, and xenoestrogens from my life in an attempt to rebalance my hormones naturally. I have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids as well as estrogen dominance so this issue is definitely a concern for me. I have listed the link below with the source of this information. I would love to hear your thoughts on this matter.

    A:

    Continue to don't believe the hype! Herbs are benevolent foods and help you, not hurt you. Red Clover is the best herb available as the most natural source of beneficial bio-organic and available female estrogen hormone -- THE BEST! Therefore, I highly recommend Red Clover for females for every female complaint and/or to maintain female health. This herb is noble. In re fibroid tumors, we are introducing our NEW 3-Wekk Fibroid Buster Kit and Regimen to expedite the healing process of uterine-ovarian-cervical tumors and cysts. I highly recommend this kit. However, right now I would recommend the Fibroid Buster formula and Moon Cycle formula in addition to the female health tea. Your estrogen dominance is due to UN-NATURAL hormone, not natural hormone -- so needed to worry about natural sources of hormone (from herbs). Stay positive, believe in the best (especially for yourself), stay focused (on your healing), keep a positive attitude about your state of being (attitude about self), and live righteously and success in all ways is yours. There is help for you, Beloved! Read some of our health articles pertaining to female reproductive health issues. You'll find them interesting! Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com

    Q: My wife is having problems, breast feeding. Complaints of soreness, and pain. She alternates between soy, and the breast milk, to give breast time to heal. We are also considering the IUD, for birth control. I suggested to her the diaphragm, or herbs. She doesn't trust the two. Also, what books would you reccomend that deals with the metaphysics of the body?

    A:

    The soy milk is really not a good alternative milk. Please read the article on "Alternative Infant Formula Milk," as well as the article "Breast Problems." You'll find answers and remedies in these articles. Herbs are better than inserting some man-made device in the vagina, but it's her choice. Everything has a resonating energy, and the energy from the gadget will alter her vaginal energy.

After chemotherapy and radiation treatment she is telling me she feels very tired, she lives in Argentina how can I help her with your advice, I did not know about your herbs when she became sick, I mentioned dherbs to her and she ask me to help.

    A:

    She needs to detoxify her body. She's now dealing with toxicity from chemotherapy and radiation on top of cancerous cells so now she must heal twice: from the drugs/radiation and the cancer. I would have her start on the FULL BODY DETOX; have her drink DETOX TEA and RAINFOREST TONIC TEA for starters. The radiation and chemotherapy are harming her. Her diet should be all raw foods and herbs.

    Q: I TRULY LOVE YOUR SITE! I am a health seeker by holistic means and am suffering from Uterine fibroids as well as cysts in my breast. My Naturopathic doctor told me that the fibroids wont totally go away with any and all treatment. However, I believe differently. I know that I will get rid of the fibroids, and I believe that I will also learn how to keep them driven away with the helpful information that I have found on your site. Thank you for also expounding on natural birth control. I have also been doing some research on this topic (being that the synthetic birth control, tampons, sanitary napkins and food microwaved in plasticware has created an estrogen dominance that has fed these insatiable tumors). I will be trying your natural birth control soon, and wanted to ask if you have also heard of another form of natural birth control called, "Neem Oil". It has been widely used in India with a 98% effective rate. I am just wondering what your take is on this?

    A: The Fibroid Cleanse & Regimen can greatly benefit you. It is a 20 Day Cleanse and Regimen that naturally works to strengthen and purify the female reproductive system, while helping with the reduction of fibroids.

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: Hi I have a soon to be 5 month old. What are your thoughts about how long a mother should breast-feed? What foods should be introduced? I currently breast feed, and what to keep my sons immunity up. Thanks!

    A:

    The proper time for solid foods is at the time the teeth come in (for chewing purposes). However, you can feed a baby puree'd foods beginning at age 6 months. A woman should breastfeed if she can for 2 years, or until the teeth come in and/or the baby doesn't want breastmilk anymore. The first foods should be puree'd fruits followed by vegetables. But never grains (at least for the first 2 years of life).
