Do You Really Need A Hysterectomy?

Comments: 0 | July 5th, 2011

Do you experience heavy and painful periods, uterine fibroids, or migraines? Have you been diagnosed with endometriosis? If so, then chances are that you have been given two options: birth control pills or a hysterectomy. Neither of these methods addresses the underlying cause of the problem, which is hormonal imbalance.

More than 600,000 hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States. In fact, hysterectomies are the second most common surgical procedure among women of reproductive age.

There are situations in which a hysterectomy is necessary, such as when cancer is in the equation. However, countless numbers of women undergo a hysterectomy for reasons such as heavy bleeding and painful periods, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and even migraines.

The logic is, we’ll just take out the offending organ and eliminate the problem altogether. Now, think about it – your body is crying out with symptoms, giving you a heads up that something’s out of balance and instead of getting to the root of the problem, what do we do? We remove the organ completely. It’s a no-brainer! Literally.

Does this make sense to you? Talk about throwing out the baby with the bath water!

Even worse, most women are not informed about the symptoms that inevitably follow a hysterectomy. At this point, many women are so sick and tired of being beat up by their monthly cycle that they don’t care what the answer is; they just want the pain to be gone.

Sure, they may not have painful periods because they lack a uterus, but now they’re automatically thrown into and experience the symptoms that go along with it such as hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, brain fog, mood swings, insomnia, low libido, etc. A hysterectomy is nothing short of surgical menopause. Anyone who tells you that there will not be repercussions for removing an entire organ is not telling the truth.

Instead of undergoing major surgery or putting a band-aid over symptoms with birth control pills that come with side effects, it’s about time we started to address what’s really going on.

These symptoms are your body’s natural way of telling you that your hormones are out of balance. When you fix the underlying cause, the symptoms are eliminated as well. It can be as simple as putting back in what’s missing with the supplementation of or .

And guess what? You get to keep your organs!
