A Queen’s Approach to Dealing With Fibroids w/ Phyllis Frempong
In this episode of Hormonally Speaking, I talk with Phyllis Frempong, otherwise known as “Fibroid Queen,” about what it means to holistically approach dealing with with fibroids.
Phyllis has a unique view as she is both a registered nurse AND holistic coach. She understands the best of both worlds, but teaches women how to take care of themselves so that yes, their fibroids can actually shrink, even from a large size.
If you have fibroids and are debating using estrogen blocking drugs or going the surgical route, I highly recommend listening to this episode to learn how diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices have a major impact on fibroids. And yes, even if they are 10cm or more in size, you have choices!
As most of you who know me by now understand that I wish I had given myself time to work on shrinking my fibroids before going the surgical route and almost losing my life.
Beyond diving in to diet and lifestyle changes, we discuss the possible reasons why Black women suffer from fibroids even more than white women (by some estimates, up to 90% of black women will have a fibroid by age 50). And Phyllis shares with us the powerful meaning behind using “Queen” as her descriptor, which every woman should take note of!
