UCLA Radiology Fibroid Imaging and Treatment Program


Alternative Therapy

Advances in medicine and technology are astounding, nonetheless the critical elements of our well being are often holistic in nature. Although we treat individual conditions with individual therapies, we recognize that many aspects of our lives interrelate with others including but not limited to stress, sleep, nutrition and exercise.

Unraveling these relationships may change how discomfort from fibroids is perceived by individual women. By modifying many of these aspects with any combination of nutrition and lifestyle counseling, vitamin and herbal supplements, homeopathy and bodywork therapies, symptoms may be decreased or even eliminated. These approaches can also be complementary to traditional allopathic medical and surgical approaches including watchful waiting, MRgFUS, UFE and robotic surgery.

The UCLA Radiology Fibroid Imaging and Treatment Program works with UCLA Center for East-West Medicine to help women desiring these approaches to find a suitable practitioner to address these needs. Of course, the decision to have any form of treatment is an individual one. We just want you to know there are alternative treatment methods and physicians who may help you. We encourage you to understand your options and make a treatment choice that's comfortable for you.
