Ayurveda prespective

  • All above mentioned causes increase Kapha (biological energy responsible for creating structures) production in body.
  • This excessive Kapha weakens powers of Pitta(biological energy responsible for transformations)
  • When this increased Kapha & weakened Pitta reaches reproductive system,the increased Kapha accelerates excessive smooth muscle production in uterus.
  • But because Pitta which is responsible for healthy transformations is weak, quality of this smooth muscle is not good.
  • There is formation of fibrous tissue which is hard & of low quality. Smooth muscles involved in formation of fibroid are also very dense due to increased Kapha.
  • Increased Kapha slows down egg production at ovary & weak pitta fails to rupture the egg on time. As a result, the cysts start to develop inside the uterine muscles & these cysts are known as Fibroids.

Certain herbs such as Varuna & Gandhari help to directly dissolve fibroids. In addition, there are Ayurvedic formulations that helps arrest heavy bleeding and also regulate the periods cycle.
