  • fibroids and caffeine

    I have a uterine fibroid(s) and severe bleeding 2 or 3 days a month. I have heard that caffeine can cause fibroids and have quit drinking my 1-2 Mt Dew a day. Will discontinuing caffeine actually make my fibroids shrink? I am also doind castor oil packs on homeopathic advice- can these help shrink the fibroids. I have no pain, just this terrible bleeding. Periods are fairly regular, though cycles are a bit short and total period lasts about 10 days. Thanks for any help or info, I'm kind of new to this all.- Cindy

    Thank you for your quick response. What other information do you need? It is my understanding that as long as the fibroids are there, I will have the bleeding continue as the uterus can not properly contract. I do not have pain so the caffeine is not an issue? Will the fibroids continue to grow? Is there anything I can do to get the fibroids to shrink?

      Forgot to mention - if it matters - that I have a thyroid condition. Could they be related?

        Castoroil has nothing to do with homeopathy, you have visited a quack!
        Caffeine will make the pains worse of all diseases.
        Fibroids will not shrink at all.
        If you need help on this matter, i suggest you post whats nesseceary for us homeopaths of info, then we will try to find the rigth remedy for you.

          Yes, thyroids, and all other diseases, medications, vaxines, etc have a connection to this, also ppills, contraceptives, etc.
          What we need to know, is: what makes you worse/better, when, what is your worst time, of the day/ year, colour of eyes,age, heigth, weigth, spots on Nails!(important)failure of vision, all you can think of ,from head to toes, dislikes/cravings, intolerance of food, situasions etc. Menses behaviour of, stools, smell, etc, urine, etc

            WOW! I had no idea it could al be intertwined. I'll try to give you the information you asked for. I am 37, 5'5" and about 138 lbs. I take 100 mg synthyroid, and various supplements including iron, calcium, Vit. A and C and E. My thyroid tests normal now, but I wonder if some people's 'normal' is different because my eyes are still way dry, my skin isn't right - like I have a blemish that won't heal and seems to have turned into some kind of growth. I am too tired for my age. I walk regularly. My best time of day is probably afternoon. My only craving would be for Mt.Dew. I have quit and really miss that. Food intoloerances include tomatoes and cantaloupe. I don't care for very spicy food. Menses are fairly regular, but about 10 days long and the last couple of days are horrendous to where I lose about a pint of blood and pretty much need to stay at home. I have no or little pain. No spotting between periods. I don't know of anything that makes the bleeding better or worse. My nails are great with no spots. I was losing hair before the thyroid meds and very exhausted then. I have hazel eyes and wear glasses because I am nearsighted. We are using condoms for contraceptives. I have four children and this condition started after the last one about 7 years ago. Stool is too small, too soft and too often, I wonder if the fibroid(s) are pressing on the colon. Urine seems normal. What I really want to know is whether anything can shrink the fibroids and/or whethere there is anyway to slow/stop the severe bleeding. thanks for your time. Why wouldn't I want to have a partial hysterctomy?

              One dose of Phosphorhus 1M (one M), once, avoid coffe from the day before, and in two months , the same for chocolate, coca cola, and avoid even the smell of coffe, as it can stop phos from working.
              Keep us posted about your progress, if a reocurrence of a a old problem shows, let it be, it will dissapear after approx 48 houers, normally. This, or bettering, show it works, new symptomes points to stoping the remedy, as it is wrong, always take notes.

                This is probably a stupid quesiton, but I have been studying this situation from all angles and read that simple ibuprofen can help the situation, I tried it immediately and have seen good results. What is the homeopathic response to ibuporfen?

                  Ibuprofen is a pain killer and an anti inflammatory drug so I am interested to know just which part of your problem it is helping. It certainly won't shrink the fibroids or stop the bleeding!!

                  I know this won't be much help to you but may be to others following this thread and that is, did you know that fibroids shrink back on their own at menopause? i.e. if you are near menopausal age ( 45-55) and are being hounded to have a hystectomy for fibroids, hold on as they will go on their own without major surgery. However you can always resort to homeopathy which is often a great help.

                  However try the Phosphorus first as I had a lady that did well on just this.

                  I know that I normally berate all combination remedies but the combination of fraximus americana 6x/hydrastis 6x/thlaspi 3x, is a well known one that is actually made together, that can work well for fibroids. take twice a day for 3 months.

                    Do not combine ibuprofen and Phospurus, if i dont remember wrong, ibuprofen contains a part phosporus. It may not work properly.

                      Ps. Several plants today, contains a part of phosporus, as they use fertilizers, who contains it, and the plants is sick.
                      thats why coffe also do antidote more than people can think, and also is a liverirritant.( to nice a word, in reality it does mutch worse things..)
                      Ecological grown food is best.

                        PPS. News about tobacco and lung cancer, tobacco from a moist climat, contains a lot of aflatoxines, and 50% of the cases of lungcancer, is tracked back to this, (aflatoxins, a fungal toxin, contains cadmium).
                        (As we did not know it, clean tobacco only produces cancer in the intestes)

                          I will try the phos when I can get a hold of it(I live in a way rural area) The ibuprofin lessened the bleeding incredibly in a very short time. I will look for the other mix- I guess I can just print it and take it to a natural food store and hopefully they will understand. I don't ever drink coffee- just Mt Dew- but will lay of and try the phosphorus. I understand that I should take one dose once and then see what happens for two months- is this right? Does it matter when in my cycle that I take the dose? and then the ohter mix- should I wait until the two months are up and see what happens? or should I try them simultaneously? thanks for your interest and time.

                            No, dont mix anything. Not phosp with the other prescription, no.
                            It works as long as two months, that is not the same as it will take that time, it could be done in a shorter time, Amonth, but recognizeable things should show in three days, a small bettering, or, a aggravation of a symptom present, or a reocurence of a old problem. if it last usually 48 houers, before signs of bettering comes, any how take notes, and post us regulary on the progress. the remedy may need to be stopped, or changed, this will the progress show.
