According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, fibroids are a direct result of liver problems. The liver is responsible for the breakdown of excess estrogen circulating in the bloodstream, that’s why taking the herb milk thistle (silybum marianum) is recommended for the natural treatment of fibroids. Numerous studies have shown that silymarin, which is a compound in milk thistle seeds, aids in the repair of the liver, impedes toxins from entering the organ, and shields it against free radicals.
Dosage information: 140 milligrams of standardized silymarin three times per day for three months, then 90 milligrams three times per day; or 10 to 25 drops of tincture up to three times per day for three to four months.
