My Daily Womb Care; Fibroids and Period in France
So today I wanted to talk to you about one of my new found friends my Boillotte!
My hot water bottle is seriously one of the best things in my life that I use at least 2 weeks per month, and judging from your show of support on my instagram quizz, you can all relate too.
So why don’t we talk more about periods, fibroids, fertility, and womb care in general? Of course I am not a doctor and non of what i share here should be taken as medical advice but Id like to share more about how I’ve been caring for myself on a daily and doing so with really bad fibroids
In 2016 I found out I had a few fibroids that were causing occasional pain and pressure on my intestines, the pain went away for a while then came back with vengeance in 2018 and really intensified in 2019, after doing another round of test and being told carelessly by a french male doctor that id be better off just cutting out my womb, I started to look into more holistic approaches to my treatment.
I started to see an accupenturist that not only helped with the pain but gave me great advice on chinese medicine and ho i can incorporate ginger tisane daily into my life to help shrink the fibroids. I started and I am no longer in debilitating pain,I can walk again and now I only have some pain around periods. My body is healing more everday I make it a safe living space.
