Polyps are made of endometrial tissue. They are soft and stem from the inner lining of the uterus.
Small polyps may regress at any stage on their own or after homeopathic or herbal treatment, while large polyps may need to be removed through surgery. Homeopathic medicine may need time to work and it should be continued for at least 6 months without interruption to produce healing effects.
If the polyp has to be surgically removed, homeopathy works within the body to
prevent the polyp to reform in the future, so it can also be used as a form of complementary medicine. This is because homeopathy addresses the cause of the disease and treats the person's unique set of characteristic symptoms including constitutional tendency and past medical history.Uterine Polyp Symptoms
1. Irregular menstrual bleeding that differs in length and quantity.
2. Spotting, or bleeding between menstrual periods.
3. Vaginal bleeding after menopause.
4. Inability to conceive.
A uterine polyp develop as an overgrowth of the tissue lining the uterus called the endometrium.
The endometrium is commonly expelled during the menstrual cycle and begins to regenerate after the period is over under the influence of female hormones.
TO support the health of the endometrium is important to make specific dietary changes like increase fiber intake in the diet. Fiber is very important to balancing excess estrogen in the body that is responsible in stimulating polyps to grow. It is also important to avoid animal fats and eating too much red meat. Process foods, fried foods, coffee and alcohol should also be avoided.Supporting The Health Of The Endometrium
The formation of polyps is linked to increased toxicity within the body and the liver inability to eliminate excess estrogen, which stimulates uterine growths like fibroids, endometriosis and polyps. The health of the endometrium is closely related with liver health as the liver plays an important part in removing toxins from the body, as well as maintaining the health of the immune system.
By supporting liver and hormonal balance it is possible to help maintain the health of the endometrium, avoiding spotting between periods, heavy and painful menses and PMS.
