I used your Childbearing book as my bible many years ago 18 to be more precise and have followed you over the years since. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for a large fibroid in order to avoid surgery. I'm also curious is there a difference between buying herbal tea such as red raspberry leaf and the straight herb. Is there a difference?
Have you read Susun’s article on fibroids? Lots of good information there: http://www.menopause-metamorphosis.com/An_Article-fibroids.htm
Some other suggestions from Susun’s latest book, Down There: Sexual and Reproductive Health the Wise Woman Way would be:
Expect results within 6–18 months
- Take a dropperful of vitex or saw
palmetto tincture 2–4 times a day.
- Investigate acupuncture.
- Listen to your uterus.
- Drink 2–3 quarts each of nettle
and raspberry infusion weekly.
- Resist hysterectomy. Seek non-
Western medical advice. Call HERS. http://www.hersfoundation.com/
For medicinal value, most herbal teas are of no use…. You would really need to do the infusions, 1 oz. by weight of dried plant to 1 quart of boiling water – you can see more about them at Susun’s site here: http://nourishingherbalinfusions.com/
