Hormone Imbalance, Hysterectomies & Adenomyosis

My Adenomyosis Story When the doctor looked at my ultrasound and said I had a “bulky uterus” and had adenomyosis 8 years ago, I had no idea what she was talking about.  She did not exactly explain what it was or what I could do about it.  I was relieved though, that finally there was a name for the heavy bleeding, passing out in the bathroom from severe pelvic pain, and huge belly I had.  Maybe I could stop looking 4 months pregnant when I was not!  I learned that the only “cure” for adenomyosis is a hysterectomy.  I was desperate for relief, yet I associated a hysterectomy with giving up the fight to love my beautiful but scarred uterus....

Women’s Sacred Anatomy 101

Women’s Sacred Anatomy 101 The uterus is the strongest muscle in the body and it is about the same size and shape as our hearts. Every woman is unique and has anatomy that is unique in size and shape. Each woman’s pelvic nerves are spread out differently, so she experiences pleasure differently. Our clitoris has 8,000 nerve endings (twice that of the penis). Our womb is more than the uterus; it is an energy center of feeling. Emotions flow like water through it. Even if we had a hysterectomy the energy is just as strong. Our past experiences and feelings are held in tissues of the pelvis and uterus. When I was 14 I was sexually assaulted and this sexual...

How to Become Moon Cycle Wise to Empower Feminine Energy

How to Become Moon Cycle Wise to Empower Feminine Energy I have always enjoyed gazing at the moon but never knew that doing this actually has therapeutic benefits. Before the electric light bulb was invented, the moon naturally had more effect on women’s menstrual cycles. In years past, women usually ovulated during the full moon and got their period around the new moon. Today women have forgotten the connection between the moon and their cycles. Our menstrual cycles are 29 days on average and the moon goes through a lunar cycle about every 29 days. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Just last month, it dawned on me that I was looking up at the full moon, and I was ovulating....

How I Made Weed Tampons to Stop Period Pain and Cramps

How I Made Weed Tampons to Stop Period Pain and Cramps For years I took Advil and had to lay in bed for hours with a heating pad because of menstrual cramp pain.  Then I learned that Advil/ibuprofen can increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and if you have ulcers, bleeding in the stomach or intestines. I decided to look for more natural alternatives.  I tried roll-ons with different essential oils which helped a little bit. Then I heard about Foria's weed tampons and tried to buy them online.  Unfortunately, because of my location, I couldn't purchase them.  I was desperate and decided to try to make them myself.  I was really pleased with how they turned out, and using...

Why Self-Care is the Key to Prosperity

Why Self-Care is the Key to Prosperity An archetype that we women have adopted is the kind-hearted water bearer. We bring water, energy, and time to those in our lives and we are careful not to spill any water or drink it for ourselves. If we focus on ourselves we could forget to help those dear to us and they would have no water. Our culture places value on how much women nurture others. “Superwomen” are expected to cook a meal, serve themselves last, and then clean up the meal as well. We need to drink water first before we can bring water to others. Stepping into who we are is bringing the focus back to our heart and ourselves....
