After years of education in Exercise Science and learning several modes of exercise, I thought I new all about the human body, as it pertains to exercise. In Arvigo Therapy classes, I was shocked to learn how vulnerable female pelvic organs are to prolapse and misalignments.
Here is an explanation: The female body undergoes hormonal changes throughout the menstrual cycle. One hormone, called relaxin softens/ loosens ligaments throughout the body, including uterine ligaments. The purpose of relaxin is to allow the ligaments of the uterus to grow with the uterus during pregnancy and to allow the hips to be extra flexible to make room for the baby for birth.
Follow these rules to prevent prolapse and other misalignments
You can make a tea that contains Red Raspberry Leaf, Nettles and Red Clover Blossom as a Fertility Tea, a Prenatal Vitamin Tea during pregnancy, and a Lactation Tea after the baby is born.
Dr Susan Weed recommends these teas instead of a prenatal vitamin during pregnancy. The amount of vitamins and minerals, including folate is better than taking a synthetic vitamin. I did this during my pregnancy and I didn't have any health issues at all, regardless of my age. When asked at the doctors office, if I was taking my prenatals, I'd answer yes. I never felt like I needed to explain what the source of my prenatal vitamins was.
Whatever your fertility issue is, please look up these individual herbs for more details. I like to keep my posts short and there is a lot of information on the following websites about these herbs and more: Natural-fertility-info.com and google Dr. Susan Weed are great resources. Good Luck!
I'm addicted to homemade chai tea. All the spices it contains are great for women.
Chai tea contains warming spices:
ginger, black pepper,
These spices help warm your blood and uterus.
The heat eases cramps
improve circulation and helps balance hormones.
They also improve digestion.
Cinnamon lowers blood sugar as well, so it benefits PCOS, diabetes and pre-diabetes.
Nutmeg helps prevent frequent night urination
Simple Recipe: To 6 cups of water add
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 tsp ground ginger or tiny piece of ginger
5 black peppercorns, crush them
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
a pinch of ground nutmeg,
teaspoon vanilla extract and
A pinch of turmeric
Bring to a boil and then lower heat and cover. Leave on low heat 1-2 hours.
Add black tea if u want caffeine, but it's not necessary.
Get your cup and add
1/2-1 teaspoon organic cane sugar or honey.
Pour tea into cup but leave room at the top to add almond or coconut milk
If the tea is too spicy for u, just add more hot water to the tea or use lots of milk. Next time use less black pepper or ginger.
If there is too much cardamom or clove, the flavor will be off.
For excessive bleeding, nonstop bleeding, painful periods, heavy clotting, anemia, and to shrink or make fibroids disappear try unsulphured blackstrap molasses, Apple Cider Vinegar, turmeric and cayenne pepper. To get the most benefit, take one or most of these daily, not just when you are bleeding.
Blackstrap Molasses: You can find it online or in most stores for $5 or $8 organic
Just take 2 tablespoons in water daily. Brush your teeth asap so your teeth don't stain
Apple Cider Vinegar
Read about benefits here
Use half to a full teaspoon daily in tea or coconut milk or almond milk with coconut oil. The best way to absorb turmeric and get all the benefits is to take it with fat, so use coconut oil. Capsules are also an option.
Is extremely effective, but spicy so put small amounts on meats, in stews and soups daily. You can put in warm water and drink like tea if you're desperate and need to stop hemorrhage quickly. Capsules are also an option
This is a magnet therapy. I will be offering sessions after the first week of April. It's extremely effective for removing pathogens which are the root cause of Excessive bleeding and fibroids

table salt can raise your blood pressure and cause bloating. Doctors recommend decreasing salt intake, to prevent high blood pressure, especially during pregnancy. BUT you can continue to eat salt, if you use the correct kind.
Table salt, the common salt we use, only contains 2 minerals, sodium and chloride. Those minerals raise blood pressure
Himalayan pink salt contains 80+ minerals and will not raise blood pressure.
Celtic salt has almost as many minerals as pink salt and won't raise blood pressure
Sea salt typically has 10 minerals, and is better than table salt, but use pink or Celtic salt if you have high blood pressure
