What helps with fibroids?

Exercise is also helpful as long as you start it gradually.

Stretching and relaxation exercises are good, really any means that translates thoughts into pleasurable doing. Then the painful pathways of the brain are directed to other tasks.

In addition, it is important to assess whether there are things in life that exacerbate pain. This is to prevent irreversible changes to pain systems.
