Cinnamon is an herb that is said to be good for fibroids, used in both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Here is a page that discusses the properties of cinnamon, which include improving pelvic blood flow.

Although I am getting an herbal formula from my acupuncturist, I also am trying to incorporate anti-fibroid herbs into my diet whenever possible. Cinnamon is one example. This morning for breakfast I cut up an apple, spread the pieces on a cookie sheet, sprinkled heavily with cinnamon, and baked for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. This gets some cinnamon in my diet, is easy, and also is a way to eat a healthy fruit that is cooked. And delicious!
