In brief: Not very likely

Uterine fibroids are benign growths of the muscle wall of the uterus.
They have no known cause and no known cure short of removing the uterus (hysterectomy). No medications have been shown to eliminate them. They can regrow after haveing been surgically removed from the uterus. Allopathic and homeopatic remedies have not been shown to have any lasting effects.

In brief: Good question

Fibroids grow under estrogen stimulation so dietary changes that minimize estrogen - such as decreased animal fat, high fiber, and decreased alcohol - could help in minimizing fibroids.
If your naturopath makes suggestions that do not shrink your fibroids, then see your gynecologist for more traditional techniques, including lupron, (leuprolide) uterine artery embolization, or surgery.

In brief: No

Homeopathy is based on the concept of sympathetic magic and has no scientific validity.
There is no homeopathic remedy that is effective for fibroids. Pick up the book "trick or treatment" by singh and ernst and/or view teh web page http://www.Trickortreatment.Com/challenge.Html.

There are homeopathic remedies that can help uterine fibroids.
It is definitely worth trying.Homeopathic remedies can help successfully alleviate multiple female conditions. Combining homeopathy with conventional medicine is a good conservative way to go

In brief: Yes, with caution

Uterine fibroids are a surgical condition when they are big, painful, and cause extreme bleeding.
They are also hormonally mediated, and can grow back after surgery. Classical homeopathy does offer helpful treatments in the form of over 100 different remedies that can stimulate the woman's innate healing system. You need an experienced homeopath to select the most effective remedy for you.
