" The only solution to your chronic painful Adenomyosis and Endometriosis is to have a complete hysterectomy."
Twelve years ago I stood in my doctors exam room listening to those words, well aware of the pain and exhaustion in my body, the limited ability to walk because of anemia, the blood transfusions, blood expanders, pain medications and hormone injections.
I listened wholeheartedly to my doctors recommendations.
"The problem, I was only 35, I hadn’t had children yet, and now the possibility of that ever happening was being taken away from me" She continued.
It astounded me that the brutality of this “care” was the only prescribed solution. I was frustrated, scared and angry. I felt abandoned by the medical community and ashamed of my body for the condition it was in. This purely allopathic approach to health care was only targeting my symptoms, I thought, and not supporting ME, my emotional body, or my overall wellbeing as a whole person.
I was studying herbal medicine at the time and I knew that Cramp Bark had an affinity for relaxing muscular tension and spasms.
I understood that the roots from Wild Yam helps to relieve uterine pain, was an effective nerve relaxant, and assisted with intense inflammation.
Along with the daily dose of prescribed medications, I gave myself a tincture of Cramp Bark, Wild Yam and Raspberry Leaf four times a day and began working with a Naturopathic Doctor and Acupuncturist.
The results were astonishing.
I still needed the surgery but with my commitment to working with plant medicine and nutrition along with preparing my emotional body, I was able to reduce my recovery time by more than half. I went on to study plant medicine and nutrition professionally. With the plant medicine I subscribed to and integrated into my daily care, I learned a new way of relating to myself, to my wellbeing and to the world around me.
That's the power of plant medicine!
Plant medicine, used alone or integrated with allopathic care and other modalities is a valuable healer.
