Is syrup of Ashoka leaves (i.e.Ashokarisht) beneficial for the treatment of fibroid caused due to missed abortion ?
Herbpathy Research Team

Dear Goldi

To remove Uterine fibroids, we recommend you to take one dose of Calcaria Carbonica 200 - once only. It is a homeopathic remedy. This should dissolve the fibroids within within 15 days. Then get it checked by a doctor. If fibroids there are still any remnants of fibroids , use Ashoka as follows, since it is an appropriate remedy for Uterine fibroids. However, it is not certain how long will it to take it for the fibroids to dissolve.
We suggest you to take it in the powdered form. Half teaspoon with warm milk once a day for about 3 days. Then, get your fibroids checked by a doctor. And write back to us about the status of the condition.
