I am officially Fibroid free!   Leave a comment

That’s right, no more fibroids in this Uterus!

If you have or ever had a fibroid, then you probably know how problematic they can be depending on the size and location.

In case you’re not familiar, a fibroid is benign tumors that usually grows in or around the uterus.  A condition found mostly in African/American and Asian women.  Problems can range from very heavy and painful menstrual periods, enlarged stomach and even fertility issues including miscarriages.  

So you can understand how excited and relieved I am to be free of them!  I can’t wait to share my journey .

One of the original reasons this blog was started was to document me and my friend’s journey of trying to naturally shrink our fibroids.  I became an herbalist and a vegan during this process.

Details of my journey coming soon in an e-book.  Be sure we have your email to keep you updated!

In the mean time, feel free to contact me directly for the inside scope at:

Did I Mention I Speak Chinese?   8 comments

Okay so, I only know five words in Chinese, but those five words have been integral in my quest to shrink my fibroid.  I found out I had a large (size of an orange!) fibroid tumor in my uterus about a year ago.  When I asked what was to be done, I was told nothing.  Nothing?!  Nothing.  According to current medical wisdom, it is impossible to get rid of a fibroid tumor without surgery or waiting until menopause, which lowers your estrogen levels and consequently shrinks your fibroid tumors.  All I could do was get an ultrasound every six months and keep an eye on it.  And the point of that was?

Anyhoo, being a proactive person, I knew there had to be something I could do to deal with this pesky fibroid.  Enter in my Chinese skills.  I came across an article online about a Chinese herbal remedy called kuei-chih-fu-ling-wan.  It discusses the effects of the herbs on uterine myomas a.k.a fibroid tumors and states that there was a shrinking of fibroids in 60% of cases.  That was enough for me to go on the hunt for some of this Chinese magic!

However, I couldn’t find it anywhere.  That was until I realized there are several spellings for the herb.  I am assuming this is because Chinese translated phonetically can have many variations.  I was able to find it online in a variety of places, when I spelled it gui zhi fu ling wan.

So, I purchased a three month supply, as this was how long until my next ultrasound.  I completely cut alcohol out of my life, which was no easy task at the time, and I took the recommended dosage, everyday.  I finished my last bottle and a few days later headed to the doctor’s.  Drum roll please…my fibroid indeed shrunk.  It reduced by one centimeter length-wise and three centimeters width-wise!  I still had a ways to go for it to shrink completely, but I was more than impressed with my results.

Although I was very encouraged, this was really just an experiment for me at the time to see if anything could shrink my tumor at all.  So, after my supply was done, I never reordered.  I know, I know.  But don’t you worry your pretty little heads, I’m back in the healing game and going hard!  As I mentioned in a previous blog, Is it erbs or hhherbs?, I am now using a variety of herbs, including Fibroid Buster from, to heal my uterus.

I anticipate only the best and will keep you posted on my progress!


Is It erbs or hhherbs?   Leave a comment

No matter how you pronounce it, herbs are this girl’s new best friend!  My co-author and I became apart of the herb game back in 2009/2010, when we both discovered that we had uterine fibroid tumors.  Being avid, natural healists (is that a word?), we were determined to do just that; heal our fibroids naturally.  That and we weren’t really given a choice as conventional medical wisdom states there is really nothing a woman can do to shrink fibroid tumors, short of surgery and menopause.  Oh, conventional medical wisdom…

My partner, being first to be diagnosed, became aware of herbs through her acupuncturist and shared her burgeoning knowledge with me.  Thus, when I was diagnosed the following year, I knew herbs were the way I wanted to go.  I did my own research and found out about Chinese herbs with proven results in shrinking fibroids.  Gui-Chi-Fu-Ling-Wan.  Yeah, I speak a little Chinese.  I went on a strict, no alcohol diet (which at the time was a strict diet) and tested out the herbs for three months.  I had an ultrasound at the end of my experiment and yup, my fibroid shrunk!  It didn’t go away, but with conventional medical wisdom saying any shrinkage was impossible, I knew I was on to something.

This year, my co-author and I decided to really get disciplined with our fibroid shrinking routine, which began with obsessive research of the various herbs out there.  And that’s when we really discovered the fantastical world of herbs!  We’re addicted.

If you have an ailment, there’s an herb out there to heal it, but why wouldn’t there be?  I mean, nature provides us with everything we need.  Before science got into the healing game, people went to healers, shamans and herbalists, not doctors.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  Doctors absolutely have their place, but we were given natural tools, like our immune system and herbs, neither of which came from a test tube.  And let’s be real for a minute.  All science does, from the medicinal standpoint, is try to mimic nature.  A scientist finds a plant that has certain chemical properties, then she tries to synthesize it in a laboratory and because it’s synthetic, there are all kinds of harsh side effects.  So, how about we cut out the middle man?  Rather than try to synthesize nature, let’s use nature in her glorious untainted form.

My co-author and I are currently learning about the herbs available to us and their healing properties.  One of our new favorite websites is  Oh Dherbs, Dherbs, how we love thee!  Not only does this website have herbal supplements for practically every affliction out there, but it also has tons of articles on natural healing and other interesting mind conscious topics, as well.  Honestly, the articles are my favorite part of the website.  I have been known to curl up with a good Dherbs article before I head to sleep.  Check them out and check out other websites and books devoted to natural healing.  There are so many out there.  Learn about herbs and what they can do (or undo) for you.  See what medicines in your medicine cabinet you can replace with herbs.  Liberate yourself!

As for our fibroids, we have been using several herbs to heal, including Dherbs Fibroid Buster.  We’ll keep you posted on our progress…


To detox or not to detox.   1 comment

There is a lot of talk floating around about body cleanses and what they do.    People are starting to take notice as they should.  Is a detox right for you and why should you do it?

Short answer:  To rid your body of toxins so your system can flow smoothly.
If you’re about to partake in a diet change or healing regimen,  you should do a full body cleanse first.
Imagine putting the best styling and moisturizing products on dirty hair.  Not only would you create more build-up but I doubt you would ever get the results you are looking for.

If you try to heal your body before cleaning it out, you may not be getting the optimum benefit out of the healing process.

I suggest starting with a colon cleanse, then liver and ending with a kidney cleanse.  Then fill your body with healthy nutritious foods.

Side effects may include clearer skin and a more regular system.
