Lately I’ve been getting a lot of emails and questions about fibroids and natural ways to heal them. While I cannot diagnose, treat, or cure any disease I can offer you some tips, which can be beneficial. Fibroids are noncancerous growths of muscle and connective tissue in the uterus. They can be painful and may affect fertility and pregnancy. As with most dis-ease in the body I always recommend going the all natural route, below is a list of some natural alternative remedies that you may find helpful.
Processed Foods- Eliminating processed foods from your diet and increasing your intake of whole nutritious foods. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that fast foods are not healthy. Anything with a shelf life including packaged goods and some frozen food contain preservatives in order to keep their “freshness”. With this process most of the food loses its nutritional value.
Meats- Some women have found it beneficial sticking to a more plant based diet free from animal protein. I am an advocate for eating a mostly or completely plant based vegetarian diet. However if you find it too difficult to cut out all meats I suggest buying range free organic chicken, grass fed organic beef, wild caught fish. Most other animal products you see at the grocery contain growth hormones. The growth hormones that these animals are digesting remain in the meat and enter your body once you eat them.
Avoid mucus forming food-Mucus forming foods can contribute to female disorders including fibroids. To help eliminate unhealthy mucus from the body start juicing every morning (organs, grapefruit, lemons, limes, pineapples). Stay away from dairy products, cow milk is one of the worst culprits. Gluten containing foods like breads, pastas, baked goods, and cereals should also be avoided. Read your labels and buy gluten free when possible.
Toxic Beauty Products- A lot of beauty products on the market today have some form of chemical in it from the preservatives to the fake dyes used for coloring and other synthetic ingredients. There have been several debates over the last few years over the use of parabens as a preservative. The issue with parabens is that they mimic estrogen in the body. A well-known cause of breast cancer and fibroid tumors is the over abundance of estrogen in the body. These in turn changes or alter your body’s natural chemistry. So please be careful and be sure to read your labels carefully before purchasing anything.
Essential Oils- Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants. Essential oils were mankind’s first medicine. When it comes to fibroids essential oils like frankincense, helichrysum, oregano, and lavender may ease symptoms. Try mixing 3 drops of essential oil with a carrier oil such coconut oil or jojoba oil. Best used if rubbed on reflex points on the feet. It may sound strange to rub on your feet but this will insure that it gets into the blood stream fast, thereby soothing the symptoms faster. I offer great essential oils in the product section of my website.
Detoxing- Cleansing and detoxing the body on a regular basis (one every few months) will help keep toxins out of the body aiding to better overall health. Even if you do eat a clean and well balanced diet toxins can still build up in the body and its always good to give your organs a good cleanse. Drinking warm water with lemon in the morning can help flush out your system. Herbs such as milk thistle will also help flush toxins out of your liver. I also take a probiotic and digestive aid daily to assist my body in the cleansing process. I offer these in the product section of my website.
I hope you find these tips helpful

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come 2Corinthians 5:17
The other day I was watching the TLC movie on VH1 and it started bringing back memories of growing up in the 90’s. I got so caught up going down memory lane I even started downloading some of my favorite songs from the group. For those of you that don’t know TLC was my favorite group back in the day. I swore up and down that I was a little miniature Chili. My hair has always been long so I would try and wear my hair like hers. When I was in the 5th grade my music class was given a group assignment to create a music video from the artist of our choice. So of course me and my friends decided to be TLC and as you can guess I played Chili. Dancing and singing along to the music not even having a clue what the lyrics really meant. Back then I thought that it was all harmless. Fast forward to now as I was listening to the music again I started really listening to the lyrics and admittedly at first it felt good dancing and reliving old times from when I was a preteen but then this spirit of sadness came over me. It was so weird and I’m like God what is this. As I started to get sad I began to pray and the Holy Spirit says to me “You’re not that person anymore”.
I thought about that statement and how drastically my life has changed since then. Did I know God at that time? Yes absolutely. Was I living for Christ at that time? No I was not. I was a different person back then. I didn’t know God like I do now. Certainly didn’t live for him. I lived for myself and strived after worldly things. Is that to say I am perfect now? Not by any means. Do I lean on the guidance from the Holy Spirit? Yes absolutely. Do I desire to live a life that is pleasing to Christ? Yes completely. So in essence yes I knew who God was but I didn’t truly know him as my personal savior. As I sat down and thought about how God saved me and transformed my whole life my sadness turned into gladness and I began to praise and thank him for all that he has done for me. I stopped listening to that music and put on my praise music; not surprisingly my mood and spirit changed drastically.
In Christ we truly are new creatures for old things have passed away and we are made new. It’s amazing how God used a movie to demonstrate that in my life. It also placed on my heart the importance of seeking God diligently daily. Mathew 26:41 says “The spirit is indeed willing but the flesh is weak”. We constantly have to be transformed by the renewing of our minds Romans 12:2. Watching that movie and listening to that music could have been an open window for Satan to enter my mind and spirit. People may think that media (music, movies, tv, social media, etc) doesn’t have an affect on how we behave but that couldn’t be the farthest thing from the truth. Guard your hearts and your minds. Meditate on the word of God daily so that your strength is renewed through Christ and your actions are guided by him and not some outside influence.
When I gave my life to Christ I died to my flesh and in him became a new creature. This means I can no longer live for myself. Everything I do must be for his glory and not my own. Even this website belongs to him; God is just letting me borrow it. So with this I encourage you to each day die to your fleshly desires. Not your will but His will.
God Bless you all !!!!!!!!!
