NU: As with the holistic treatment of most any health condition, treating uterine fibroids is always a three-pronged approach involving diet, supplementation, and lifestyle changes.
I am inspired by what I’ve learned in my own journey and feel it is important to share other methods to support our reproductive, hormonal and uterine health—especially for women who look like me since we are at a higher risk. I am encouraged to know that there is something that we can do to elevate these conversations and our health.

This is beautiful, I am a African woman and I was diagnosed with Fibroids December of last year about 4 one being 8cm. I am only 24 years old and the OBGYN recommended surgery. I just wasn’t comfortable with having my uterus cut open then having the process done again when I am ready for child birth. Immediately I changed my diet and lifestyle. So far I have lost 40 pounds. I owe a lot to Dr.Sebi and people who write articles like this, I believe in supernatural healing and that God created us to heal ourselves. Thank you for posting this, it gives me hope and motivation.
NU: All the treatments above reduce pain from fibroids as the excess estrogen is cleansed from the body and fibroids begin to shrink. Fibro Defense, in particular, is helpful. Other pain relief options are warm castor oil packs do wonders for fibroid pain, essential oils like clary sage, thyme, and frankincense (a few drops of each combined with a bit of carrier oil massaged over the lower belly), sipping on teas like red raspberry leaf, nettle, and dandelion (I like a strong concoction of all three sipped throughout menses), yoga, and acupuncture are all very effective at managing painful symptoms. But again, all of this must be combined with diet, supplementation and lifestyle changes to really work.
CBD oil may have a beneficial effect on the size of already existing fibroids. In 1995, it was reported that the prolonged use of an OC produced a significant shrinkage in myomas’ size;33 however, immediately after, the journal published a formal retraction.34
The promising anti-inflammatory properties of CBD have been helpful to many people in reducing pain from chronic conditions. To those seeking an alternative to traditional methods long used to reduce pain CBD has been their new go to remedy. The reason why we are witnessing a HUGE spike in interest around CBD and its uses is that more people now know about what CBD really is. This information has sparked the CBD Movement and has been enlightening peoples minds and improving their quality of life across the United States over the past 2 years.
CBD Oil Shrinks Fibroids In Women, Study Claims
CBD will not help you get rid of fibroids, but it may offer the user temporary relief. On a clinical level, CBD hasn’t shown any signs of being effective against fibroids. People who have used CBD for their fibroids have found that CBD suppositories helped them with inflammation and pain. In short, CBD is useful in reducing the pain associated with fibroids rather than stopping the cause. CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, because of this it can be useful in slowing down pain, giving users a good night’s sleep without losing sleep to pain.
Research to prove that marijuana has a positive impact on patients with certain diseases is not allowed under federal law.
Of the three tested compounds, cannabidiol was found to be most effective and quickly shrink fibroids in lab experiments. Dr Linda Bauld, a professor at the University of Stirling in the UK, was not part of the study. “It is difficult to estimate the size of the fibroid impact on endometrial function because of the nature of this study,” said Bauld in a statement. “Nevertheless, the well-documented side-effects of oestrogen-based drugs is very relevant to consider when determining their therapeutic value.”

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that sometimes grow in the lining of the uterus. While fibroids are usually harmless, they can sometimes cause pain, discomfort, and difficult periods. Although some research suggests that cannabinoids like CBD might be able to reduce the growth of tumors, there’s not much evidence that it can help specifically with fibroids.
