Hormones and women's health
my eye
Currently, and for many years now I have been having issues with endometriosis, fibroids (don't have those at the moment) severe pms and ovarian cysts. At the moment I have a cyst on my left ovary and endo in the culdesac behind the tube which can cause hip and leg pain.

Most days are funky for me in some way. I either have some sort of pain or it upsets my stomach which triggers my anxiety because I am emetophobic. Honestly, I barely notice because there is such a routine around these things I've developed that alleviate the symptoms I've been doing for years.

I thought I'd share.

b6 sublingual
b12 sublingual
serrapeptase ( an enzyme said to eat dead tissue and scar tissue)
ginger for nausea
fresh flax ground in a smoothie- great for breast pain around periods too
vitamin e
dong quai
evening primrose
flax oil
a great liquid probiotic called Bio K which kicks and upset tummy in the ass
bio d emulsion
yello dock or floradix for low iron associated with endo

Raspberry leaf tea as a uterine tonic
a diet very low in meats and super high in things like

shitake mushrooms
cabbage sauteed with onions and broccolini
sea weed salads
green drinks
steamed nettles
mustard greens
swiss chard
baby greens
mahi mahi

apple cider and honey tea

I drink a home made lemonade that makes my liver happy and my skin glow that I make with three squeezed meyers lemons in about a litre of water with a few drops of stevia sweetner.

I rub a lot of ginger and lavender oil on my tummy and I often pour castor oil onto a cotton face cloth and then cover it with a heating pad or hot water bottle- it's said to bring circulation to that area. I drink a lot of digestive teas and warming teas with cinnamon, ginger, cardamon and black pepper to help warm me as endo in chinese medicine is considered cold, damp stagnant.

I have an herbal tincture that has

false unicorn
white dead nettle
blessed thistle
ginger and
black cohosh in it.
It helps to stanch internal bleeding and dries up congestion in the pelvis. I also go to accupuncture. There is also a homeopathic remedy called oophorinum I have but I have not been taking it because I drink coffee which is said to ruin the remedies ability to work.

I'd love to hear if you have any health issues that you worry about and share with others what you use or perhaps someone else has input you might find useful.

This is where my head is at...

I've been burning essential oils in an oil burner, thuja oil, rosemary and sweet orange. The thuja and rosemary are said to be anti viral. I use lavender on my belly when it hurts and ylang ylang in the bath when I want to calm down and am wanting romance. What are your favorite oils? What do you use them for?
