The Ayurvedic Woman

"When I was 34 years old, I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids.These are typically benign tumors, but because of their location and form, it was not possible to determine that they were non-cancerous from ultrasound alone. I was advised to have exploratory surgery so the doctors could get a closer look at them.I was raised mainstream in the US, my mother was a nurse, and I thought doctors knew everything, so I willingly signed up for the surgery.
