Hello there! I’ve talked about several herbal teas in the past. This time I’ll discuss herbal teas for fibroids. Don’t miss #3.
There are many herbal remedies that can help reduce or even get rid of your fibroid symptoms. Many people use these herbs to manage their health in other ways as well, so they do not see it as a limited tool.
There are several different types of herbal teas that you can try incorporating into your daily routine. Some work better than others for individual patients, but no one tea is known to have significant benefits over a placebo.
That is why using a few drops here or there cannot be harmful!
This article will discuss some common teas that can potentially aid in reducing or getting rid of your fibroid symptoms.
They have been shown to effectively reduce hormonal levels in women, which has a positive effect on overall wellness and symptom management.
8 Herbal Teas for Fibroids
1.) Parsley tea
One of the most popular herbal teas for fibroid tumors is parsley tea. There are several recipes for this brew, but they all contain one key ingredient- fresh parsley.
You can either use flat-leaf parsley or curly-leaf parsley to make the tea. It doesn’t matter which kind you pick, just be sure to wash it first!
Once washed, put 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley in a cup and cover with hot water.
Let sit for 10 minutes and then strain out the parsley.
You want to retain some flavor of the herb so don’t rinse off the parsley completely.
Drink 1–2 cups of filtered liquid every day, preferably early in the morning before having breakfast. (Be careful not to overdo it as parsley has been known to cause stomach problems in some people.)
Remedy time? This natural treatment will take anywhere from weeks to months to work depending on your body’s response to the herbs. But if there are no significant changes after six months, try another tea. If you don’t like the acidity of tea, try these tricks.
2.) Chamomile tea
It’s known for its relaxing benefits. Many people enjoy adding some to their bedtime drink or having it as an afternoon pick-me-up.
Chamomile comes from the Greek word chamai, which means “to celebrate.” This is due to its pleasant nature and ability to promote sleep.
Studies have shown that consuming chamomile may reduce symptoms of pain related to fibroid tumors. Because this is a natural product, there are no reported serious side effects.
Some studies report improved quality of life and reduced stress levels when using chamomile for pain relief.
You can make a cup of tea by mixing one teaspoon of dried chamomile flowers with hot water. Let the mixture steep for at least ten minutes and sip slowly.
Note: If you experience stomachache, discomfort in your back, chest, arms, or legs, or shortness of breath while drinking chamomile, stop immediately and consult a doctor. You could suffer internal bleeding or other health problems.
You may also want to try this herbal tea for your kidneys.
3.) Lemon balm tea
One of the most well-known herbal teas for fibroid symptoms is lemon balm tea.
Made from the leaves of lemongrass, an aromatic herb that has been used in medicine since ancient times, lemon balm has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce fluid buildup in swollen tissues.
Lemon balm may also promote blood flow, which helps eliminate waste products such as ketone bodies (a byproduct of fat metabolism) that accumulate when there’s not enough circulation.
A review conducted in 2018 found limited evidence that lemon balm was effective for pain related to endometriosis or heavy menstruation. But it did find some benefits in reducing stress hormone levels and improving sleep quality.
More research is needed to determine if these benefits apply to women with noncancerous vaginal bleeding and/or fibroid tumors, but it’s a reasonable option to try.
You can make your own tea by adding one teaspoon of dried leaf per cup of boiling water and steeping for at least ten minutes.
4.) White peony tea
One of the most well-known herbal teas for fibroid symptoms is white peony tea. Peonies are grown in many parts of the world, including China and Japan.
They are known to promote healthy skin growth and improve overall health and wellness.
White peony tea contains antioxidants that have been shown to reduce inflammation. It also helps maintain blood flow, which can help eliminate excess estrogen from body tissues.
When preparing white peony tea, you will need one teaspoon of dried white peony per cup of water. Let it brew for at least ten minutes before drinking. You may want to drink two cups every day to see results.
You can also add ginger or cucumber to make the tea more unique. Both of these ingredients strengthen your immune system and aid in detoxification. And if you wish to get rid of your excess fat, this tea is a must-try.
5.) Red clover tea
One of the most popular herbal teas for fibroid symptoms is red clover tea. Many people have had success with this tea, but not all are as successful in lowering their symptoms.
Red clover comes from the legume family which includes peas and lentils.
It can be consumed raw or made into beverages, salves, and topicals.
Some people feel that ingesting the dried plant helps take out any harmful chemicals while also giving your body more of the nutrients needed to help heal and restore balance.
Certain studies show that certain phytochemicals in red clover may reduce levels of tumor growth hormone (HT) and estrogen.
Because women’s bodies naturally produce both HT and estrogen, decreasing these hormones can cause weight loss, decreased breast tissue, and reduced menstrual bleeding.
Another possible reason for red clover’s effectiveness is its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation has been linked to chronic health conditions like heart disease and obesity so neutralizing inflammation can aid in healing and prevention of additional problems.
6.) Holy basil tea
One of the most popular herbal teas for fibroid symptoms is holy basil or tulsi tea. This green leafy herb can be consumed by just drinking one cup of purified water with eight to sixteen leaves.
Holy basil has many uses that have little to do with weight loss, but may still benefit you!
Some studies show it helps reduce blood clotting, lowers cholesterol, and aids in digestion. All of this help keep your heart healthy and functioning well.
When making holy basil tea for fibroids, make sure to drink it all before bed so it will relax your muscles and promote sleep. It also works better if you use freshly picked leaves.
7.) Licorice root tea
Licorice, like glucose, can help promote blood clot formation, which makes sense since it’s often used to treat stomach ulcers!
Studies have shown that drinking three cups of licorice root tea per day may reduce both symptoms and tumor size of fibroids.
It also doesn’t seem to cause many side effects other than some gastrointestinal discomfort.
However, just as with any new health intervention, we recommend doing a small test run first to see how you feel before adding it to your daily routine.
8.) Parsley juice
Many people have success with this remedy, but you must make sure that you drink enough to get the full benefits.
The amount of parsley needed depends on how much tissue there is in your body and on what size the tumor is. Because every person’s body is different, it is impossible to say exactly how many leaves you should use until you try the treatment.
Some women are able to stop using the parsley after just one or two doses, while other patients need more repeated exposures before they see results. Drinking eight glasses of parsley tea per week may help reduce the thickness of the uterine wall and minimize bleeding.
Should You Try One of These Teas?
Before you try one of these herbal teas for fibroids, make sure to talk to your doctor. Keep in mind that these teas are not cures.
They may alleviate your symptoms. Thus, don’t stop taking the medicines your doctor has prescribed for your condition. Always follow your doctor’s recommendations on how to manage your fibroids.
