    Hi Juliet,
    Can you please advise on what herbs to use for uterine fibroids? I am 57 and have just started with menopausal symptoms so am hopeful that the fibroids will start to shrink now that my estrogen levels will drop? A slight concern: If I use hormone balancing herbs, will the herbs not ‘normalize’ my estrogen levels by stimulating estrogen production?

    • Hi Bev,

      Thanks for getting in touch. I have emailed you a slightly more detailed answer – but for those reading this blog who may have a similar question – you can actually use any of the herb blends for uterine fibroids – your choice will be based on your menstrual history/patterns. If you would like a full assessment of those patterns, you can sign up for a yoni steaming consultation – which includes an initial assessment and recommendation for the type of herbs and steaming protocol, plus follow-ups via email after 1, 2 and 3 months respectively. That would be my top recommendation in order to make sure you choose the right herbs for your own unique constitution.

      The thing with steaming for fibroids is that it is a long process – it is recommended to do it every day for up to 3 months. During this time, some women have actually seen the fibroids come out of them – and some have just started to notice that the symptoms associated with the fibroids have lessened. But if you don’t see/experience such evidence then you may wish to have an ultrasound at the end of 3 months to see how things are looking.

      As for restoring hormonal balance – what steaming does is to increase circulation to the entire reproductive system – and this brings the necessary nutrients to the ovaries and removes toxins/waste from them – thus allowing them to produce their hormones in the right quantities and proportions to each other. But this will only happen according to the natural processes of your own body – it won’t override them. There are tonic herbs in the blends that support your blood and kidneys – and I do add therapeutic herbs as well but the therapeutic herbs are for bringing on a uterine cleanse or overcoming bacterial or yeast infections – they aren’t hormone boosters. The herbs are there to support your body in its natural processes – not to “boost” your hormones in any way.

      And yes, fibroids should definitely start shrinking as a natural consequence of lower estrogen following menopause.

      Hope this helps! xx

    Hello. I am 55 and had a partial hysterectomy. Which blend would be good for me??? And, do I steam first then use the Yoni eggs??

    • Hi Pamela, thanks for getting in touch. I have emailed you to ask for more information. Please let me know if you haven’t received that – otherwise, will chat further via email. Thanks! xx
