Fibroids: Supplements provide permanent cure —Dr. Fadeyi
Thursday, 27 October 2011
Apart from painful menstruation, she regularly had symptoms of pregnancy: missed periods, swollen breasts and protruding stomach. She had come to this clinic hoping to find a cure.
After physical examination, the doctor recommended that she should go through scan. And then the bubble burst. She had a growth right inside her womb. She had fibroid.
Fibroid is not a new disease, but it is a development that is bringing tears into the lives of many women and it is wrecking marriages. Even when surgery is recommended, very few ever get pregnant again. In fact, according to experts, surgery for fibroid could involve the removal of the patient's womb. It is that bad and the number of carriers is growing. It had no known cure, that is, until now.
So, it was a call to arms when, while responding to complaints from its independent distributors on the prevalence of this condition, Forever Living Products (Nigeria) Limited, engaged a man versed in the field of clinical sexology, a medical doctor with knowledge in herbal medicine and a marriage counselor, Dr. Taiwo Fadeyi - to throw light into this dreaded disease, its causes, its management and eventual cure.
For three hours, the Faculty of Medicine, University of Cairo, Egypt - trained medical director of F&G Clinic & Laboratory Services, Lekki, Lagos, Dr Fadeyi, held a Lagos audience that had defied the early morning rains of Saturday, September 17, to listen to him, at the FLP Eagle Hall, spell bound.
Dr. Fadeyi described fibroid as a non-cancerous tissue that is found in the womb of women. “It is a mass which creates a lot of problems for women in terms of fertility, menstrual problems and frequent abdominal pains.” According to him, fibroid has become rampant in the Nigerian society due to modern lifestyle. “The causes of fibroid can be traced to the type of lifestyle that our people now live. Such lifestyles cannot be compared with the natural lifestyles of the people of old,” he said.
He added: “There are so many things that are bringing in a lot of oestrogen into the body systems now, like plastics, pesticides and even the foods and the processes under which we breed animals for consumption”.
He continued: “Most of these things, including fishes, are bred artificially. So they store those hormones that we are imbibing and that is what is causing some of these problems”.
The Eagle Hall was silent. “What to do?” It was like he was responding to FLP history statement: “to offer the finest and healthiest products to the public that are proven to promote lasting health and wellness, and do it in a personal way”
“You need supplements; they do help and they will continue to help”, Fadeyi assured. “Normally, Forever Living Products and other herbal supplements are holistic things, they go into the body and try to reverse whatever bad that had been done inside the body and they want to do that holistically. That is the way they help,” he said, displaying to the audience, two live specimen of fibroid extracted from the womb of patients from his clinic recently.
Dr Fadeyi said FLP range of supplements was capable of not only managing the ailment, but they provide permanent cure, recommending supplements like Aloe Vera Gel, Arctic Sea, Aloe Berry Nectar as foundation supplements that could take care of fibroid and even help to restore and check re-growth for those who had undergone surgery for the disease.
“Definitely, a surgery for fibroid is recommended for cases which cannot be managed. In cases of surgery, where you have a patient that is bleeding uncontrollably, or you have a patient who has a big fibroid mass, I will personally suggest surgery for such cases and thereafter they can go back and use these supplements to prevent reoccurrence.”.
Fadeyi stressed that Forever supplements are natural products which have been accepted all over the world as a check to contamination that today's living has brought.
To those with fibroid, he advised, “For each particular case, I would just normally say, herbal supplements.”

The Critical Omega-3:Omega-6 Balance
There is an important balance that most people do not fully understand when it comes to Omegas. Historically, nutritionally balanced diets contained a healthy ratio of Omegas as 1:1 up to 1:4 DHA:EPA. Unfortunately, many diets include unhealthy levels of Omega-6’s which are traditionally derived from fried foods, vegetable oils, fake butter products, grain-fed animal fat and other modern convenience and processed foods. In addition, many diets are low in fish and Omega-3 consumption, which creates an unhealthy ratio of Omega-6: Omega-3 as high as 30:1! The key to getting back to a healthy ratio of DHA:EPA is increasing Omega-3 consumption and reducing Omega-6 intake.
Dosage:- 2 capsule x 3 daily for 7 days, 1 capsule x 3 daily thereafter
Lycium is known in China as a “yin tonic”, with many traditional uses for maintaining good health. Licorice is considered to be the most widely used herb in China. It is made up of over 150 different compounds, which have been shown to have many beneficial effects. Its most frequent use by far is as a complementary herb, with its main function being to bring out the best beneficial effects of other herbs. This makes it an ideal companion for lycium.
Licorice Flavonoid Extract is a concentrated form of licorice bioflavonoids. It is produced according to a process that removes most of the glycyrrhizin, an intensely sweet component of licorice that has been shown to produce undesirable side effects. Based on modern studies, licorice bioflavonoids are among the strongest antioxidants discovered to date.
- Powerful antioxidant
- Good source of phytonutrients

Forever Garcinia Plus® is a revolutionary dietary supplement, containing ingredients that may aid in weight loss. The primary ingredient is a natural substance derived from the fruit of a Southern Asian tree, the Garcinia Cambogia, also known as the Malabar Tamarind. The rind of this fruit is dried and used to produce a substance that is very similar to the citric acid found in oranges and other citrus fruits.
Specialists in plant compounds became aware of the remarkable qualities of this substance in the late 1960s, when they learned that it can temporarily inhibit the body’s production of fats from carbohydrates. During the normal metabolism of a meal, carbohydrate calories that are not used immediately for energy or stored as glycogen are converted into fats in the liver. Garcinia works by inhibiting the enzyme (citrate liase) which converts these calories into fat. As a result, the body will burn existing fat stores, thus aiding in weight loss.
When enough glycogen has been created and stored in the liver, a message is sent to the brain indicating sufficient food has been taken. This action is called a satiety reflex, and quells the appetite, reducing the desire for more food.
- Contains a natural appetite suppressant
- Temporarily inhibits the enzyme that converts calories into fat
- A useful tool in weight management

The dietary uses of garlic and thyme have been traced back thousands of years. An Egyptian papyrus dating from 1,500BC listed 22 healthy uses for garlic. Today, we are starting to understand how they work.
Garlic and thyme, the two powerful antioxidants found in Forever Garlic-Thyme®, combine to create a great tool in maintaining good health. When garlic is cut or crushed, enzymes react to produce a powerful immune-enhancing agent. Studies have shown that garlic’s other ingredients help the metabolism convert fats to energy and protect the body against free radicals.
Other healthy substances in this odorless softgel include ajoene and lecithin, which can help emulsify fats. Garlic’s sulfur compounds have also been shown to have beneficial properties. Garlic also contains germanium, a mineral trace element believed to help boost the body’s immune system and selenium, a trace mineral antioxidant.

What to do about fibroidsJUL 2008
Every year in the United States, hundreds of thousands of women undergo treatments and procedures (including as many as 200,000 hysterectomies) because of fibroids. About 25% to 30% of reproductive-age women have symptoms caused by these rubbery noncancerous growths that form in the walls of the uterus, usually between the ages of 35 and 50. Many more women have fibroids but no symptoms. African American women are three times more likely to develop symptomatic fibroids than women of other ethnic groups, and typically do so at an earlier age.
Fibroids can drastically alter a woman's quality of life. For example, a very large fibroid can expand the uterus to the size of a second-trimester pregnancy and press against the bowel or bladder, causing constipation or frequent urination. Fibroids are also occasionally associated with infertility, miscarriage, and premature labor. But the most common complaint is heavy, often clot-studded menstrual bleeding, called menorrhagia (if a pad or tampon is soaked through every hour) or hypermenorrhagia (if two or more tampons or pads are soaked through every hour), which can make a woman a virtual prisoner in her home during her periods. Such heavy bleeding can also cause iron-deficiency anemia.
No one knows exactly what causes fibroids. Genes that accelerate the growth of uterine muscle cells may play a role. Abnormalities in uterine blood vessels may also be involved. The presence of estrogen and possibly progesterone seems to be important in some way: fibroids seldom occur before the first menstrual period, pregnancy can spur their growth, and they usually shrink after menopause.
Until the late 1990s, hysterectomy was often among the first treatments considered. Since then, less-invasive therapies have become more available, and more is known about the options for managing different types of fibroids. Women now have more choices for their treatment, and clinicians can better individualize care.
|Types of fibroids |
Fibroids are classified by location. They are generally multiple, and you can have more than one type. The most common type, intramural fibroids, grow within the uterine wall and sometimes cause heavy menstrual flow, a frequent urge to urinate, and, in some cases, back and pelvic pain. Submucosal fibroids, the least common type, start under the uterine lining (endometrium) and may protrude into the uterine cavity. They can cause heavy bleeding and are most closely linked to fertility problems. Some fibroids are pedunculated, meaning that they grow on a stalk. Subserosal fibroids grow on the outer surface of the uterus, sometimes on a stalk. They usually don't cause bleeding but may cause pressure. Rarely, they can twist or degenerate and will be painful.
Treatment approachesFibroids are often found during a routine pelvic exam or imaging procedures performed for other reasons. If they don't cause symptoms — heavy bleeding, pressure, or pain — and aren't implicated in infertility, fibroids usually don't require treatment. When there are symptoms, they can be managed with medications (the usual first approach) or with surgery, using minimally invasive techniques where possible.
The first step in determining your options is a thorough evaluation, starting with your gynecologist. She or he can often feel fibroids on a pelvic exam but may use imaging techniques to get more precise information, which is critical for planning treatment. For example, transvaginal ultrasound can help assess the size of fibroids that extend into the uterine cavity (intracavitary fibroids); the addition of 3-D imaging can determine their location precisely. This is important because intracavitary fibroids can cause infertility. Other potentially useful imaging techniques include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and sonohysterogram (ultrasound with a saline infusion into the uterine cavity). Your clinician may also examine the uterine cavity with a small optical device (hysteroscope) inserted through the cervix.
If you're relatively young and symptoms aren't severe, you may simply wait out your fibroids, since they're likely to shrink after menopause. As you "watch and wait," your clinician will monitor them at regular intervals. Development and growth of fibroids isn't unusual in premenopausal women, but in postmenopausal women, a new or enlarging mass may indicate a malignancy and should be followed up.
MedicationsIf your symptoms preclude waiting until menopause, there are other options, surgical and pharmaceutical. For mild pain, your clinician may suggest over-the-counter analgesics, including acetaminophen (Tylenol) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil). For anemia caused by heavy bleeding, you may be advised to increase your iron intake through diet, supplements, or both.
No medication can prevent fibroids or guarantee that they won't return. But there are prescription drugs that shrink fibroids and reduce bleeding. The most important classes of prescription drugs are the following:
GnRH agonists. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists such as leuprolide (Lupron) suppress ovarian estrogen production and produce a temporary false menopause that reduces blood flow to fibroids and shrinks them. Fibroids usually grow back once the drug is stopped. These medications are rarely used for more than six months, because they can bring on menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and vaginal dryness — as well as depression, joint pain, bone loss, and sleep problems. The best candidates for GnRH treatment are women who need only a short-term "bridge" to menopause, when fibroids tend to recede, or respite from periods to build up their blood count. A GnRH agonist may also be prescribed before surgery to shrink fibroids.
Hormonal agents. Birth control pills, the androgen drug danazol (Danocrine), or medroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo-Provera) may be prescribed to help control bleeding. Mifepristone (RU-486) blocks progesterone, shrinking fibroids and reducing bleeding. (Researchers are developing other drugs in this class, called selective progesterone receptor modulators, or SPRMs.) Early studies suggested that RU-486 might cause overgrowth of uterine cells, but lowering the dose appears to solve that problem. Raloxifene (Evista) helps shrink fibroids but is prescribed only for postmenopausal women. Some women get relief from heavy bleeding by using a progestin-releasing intrauterine device (Mirena).
SurgeryFor more severe symptoms, you may want to consider surgery. Your decision will depend largely on whether you've completed childbearing and, if you have, whether you are willing to wait for menopause. The two most common surgeries are these:
Myomectomy. This operation removes only the fibroid (or fibroids). It preserves the uterus, so it's the best option for women who may want to have children (although they may be advised to deliver by cesarean section).
Depending on the type, size, and location of the fibroid(s), myomectomy may be performed through a standard abdominal incision or — less invasively — via laparoscopy, where small incisions and video-aided instruments are used. The surgeon may also employ a technique called hysteroscopy. In this procedure, a hysteroscope equipped with instruments for removing the fibroids is introduced into the uterus through the vagina and may be used for fibroids that protrude into the uterine cavity. Surgeons must be specially trained to perform this operation. Recovery time is shorter in hysteroscopic and laparoscopic procedures than in abdominal myomectomy, and fertility rates are excellent.
One disadvantage of myomectomy is that adhesions may form. (Adhesions are a type of scar tissue that forms on pelvic organs and binds them to each other.) Another is that fibroids may recur, since the uterus isn't removed. Among women undergoing myomectomy, 10% to 33% require a second surgery within five years.
Hysterectomy. The uterus is removed through an incision in the lower abdomen, through the vagina, or laparoscopically. This completely eliminates fibroids and their symptoms.
Hysterectomy is safe and effective and has a low complication rate. Nevertheless, it's major surgery that requires anesthesia and — depending on the particular procedure — two to six weeks of recovery time. Women who have had a hysterectomy are at greater risk for urinary incontinence and reach menopause an average of two years earlier.
Studies suggest that most women are satisfied with their decision to have the procedure. But hysterectomy ends periods and childbearing, so you need to consider psychological as well as medical ramifications.

Uterine artery embolizationUterine artery embolization (UAE) — also known as uterine fibroid embolization — is a minimally invasive procedure that shrinks fibroids by cutting off their blood supply. UAE has been around since the early 1980s as a treatment for postpartum and other traumatic pelvic bleeding. Since 1995, it's been used to treat fibroids and has become increasingly popular.
Before the procedure, the pelvic area is imaged (preferably with MRI) to rule out other causes of symptoms, such as an ovarian tumor. This also helps ascertain the size, location, and types of fibroids involved. During the procedure, an interventional radiologist inserts a catheter through a small nick in the skin (at the groin) into the femoral artery. Using contrast dye x-ray imaging, the catheter is guided into one of the two arteries that supply the uterus (the uterine arteries). Sand-sized particles made of a synthetic material are then injected into the uterine artery. The particles concentrate in the blood vessels feeding the fibroid (see illustration), cutting off its blood supply and eventually shrinking it. Both uterine arteries can usually be treated during the same catheterization.
|Uterine artery embolization |
During the procedure, an interventional radiologist threads a catheter into the uterine artery by way of the groin, using real-time x-ray imaging, and releases tiny particles into the artery on one side of the uterus. The particles accumulate in the blood vessels feeding the fibroid, cutting off its blood supply. Then the procedure is repeated on the other side.
Serious complications are rare (less than 1%). There is some concern about damage to the ovaries from migrating particles. A few women have suffered a temporary or even permanent disruption of ovarian function. The risk is greater after age 45. In some cases, sloughed-off fibroid tissue becomes stuck in the cervix on its way out of the body and has to be removed surgically.
UAE is an option for a woman who doesn't want or can't have surgery, or who would like to preserve her uterus. It generally isn't recommended for women wanting to conceive after treatment: pregnancy rates are lower — and pregnancy complication rates are higher — following UAE than after myomectomy.
UAE is most effective for fibroids that are not pedunculated (growing on a stalk). Surveys show that 85% to 90% of women are satisfied with the results up to three years after the procedure. It's faster than hysterectomy and involves a shorter hospital stay and less recovery time. Quality of life scores are similar for the two procedures. But follow-up data indicate that 20% to 24% of women undergoing UAE will need surgery (hysterectomy or myomectomy) within a couple of years.
Some gynecologists are looking for ways to interrupt the blood supply of fibroids without injecting foreign material into the body. In laparoscopic uterine artery occlusion, the clinician places a small clip or clamp on the uterine artery during a laparoscopic procedure. Another technique requires no incision at all; the surgeon approaches the artery through the vagina to apply a clamp, which stays in place for a few hours and shrinks the fibroid. Blood flow returns to the artery when the clamp is removed.
Magnetic resonance–guided ultrasoundMagnetic resonance–guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS) is a noninvasive technique that works by heating and shrinking the fibroid with high-intensity ultrasound waves. MRI is used to visualize the fibroid and monitor temperature changes in the tissue during the procedure.
The device used to perform MRgFUS (the ExAblate 2000) gained FDA approval in 2004, so there's little information on its long-term safety and effectiveness. Two- and three-year follow-up studies suggest that MRgFUS helps reduce symptoms, but it hasn't been compared directly with hysterectomy, myomectomy, or UAE.
|How does MRgFUS work? |
The patient lies on her stomach on a table inside the MRI scanner, positioned over a transducer that emits high-intensity ultrasound energy and focuses it on a tiny area of the fibroid. Each such "sonication" heats and destroys a small amount of tissue; multiple sonications are required for each fibroid. The patient is sedated but fully awake during the procedure, which takes three hours, on average. Patients can go home shortly afterward and usually return to normal activities the next day.

Foods to Avoid When Fighting Uterine Fibroids
While the causes of fibroid tumors remain unknown, it is believed by many in the medical field that the presence of the female hormone estrogen is to blame. With this in mind, there are foods that may increase estrogen levels in the body beyond normal levels which gives growing tumors exactly what they want.
So the plan when fighting uterine fibroids with food is to learn to avoid these types of foods. Some of these types of foods that activate estrogen levels include but are not limited to;
Sugar derived from simple sugars, carbohydrates as well as various other hidden sugars found in processed foods causes more estrogen in the body by;
- increasing insulin levels in the body which then decrease the levels of a hormone that binds free estrogen called sex hormone binding globulin. When the body has less of this estrogen binding hormone, it means that there will be more of the fibroid loving estrogen in the bloodstream.
- Sugar also reduces the functioning of the immune system which fights sickness and disease.
- More sugar in the body means less vitamin B which usually helps the liver to get rid of estrogen.
- The extra insulin levels in the body due to sugar go hand in hand with weight gain which is why most people with Type II diabetes (the “sugar disease” are obese. Carrying extra pounds can increase estrogen levels.
If you cannot completely eliminate sugar from your diet, keep the amount consumed to a minimum and do read food labels so that you can identify foods with hidden sugars.
Sugar is also aging so this is another incentive to cut out sugar or a least keep your consumption to very low levels.
Some doctors usually recommend that women with fibroid tumors avoid all dairy products from cows’ milk as they may increase estrogen levels as well as prostaglandins which is a hormone that increases cramps and can increase the pain related to some tumors.
3. Meat and Poultry
Unless you are eating organic meat from grass-fed animals or free range poultry, it is best to avoid most meats and poultry or at least keep their consumption to a minimum when fighting uterine fibroids.
This is because most of the meat and poultry available for sale in grocery stores are from animals that have been treated with various antibiotics, steroids, growth hormones, etc, and these substances may accumulate in the body and may produce estrogen like results.
These are just a few of the foods to avoid when fighting uterine fibroids. Making better lifestyle choices is an important part of fibroid natural treatment that will restore your health and eliminate these tumors.
The wisdom you will gain from this report, will help you cure fibroids naturally.
