I know I do not really share intimate details of my life, but I thought I’d share this as it might help someone.
A few years ago, hubby and I were trying for number two.
We couldn’t understand why it was taking so long, so we had diagnostic tests done.
Luckily, all our blood panels and hormone levels came out fine.
My fertility hormones were all good and the uterus was clear.
However, when during the scan, they discovered a possible blockage on my left fallopian tube.
So I was sent for an HSG (Hysterosalpingography) – a diagnostic scan to check what was going on there.
It turned out that I had a hydrosalpinx – a blockage in the tube.
The options were selective IVF (not really an option for me) or removing the tube altogether.
This was a major decision, so hubs and I said we needed time to think it over.
After discussing things, we decided not to use the medical interventions offered for this.
We decided to try and fix it as naturally as possible.
I am experienced Western herbalist and my husband had already seen how the herbal protocols i created for loved ones and friends have helped them, so he was happy to go along with my suggestion that we try and fix this as naturally as possible.
In addition to herbal medicine, I am also a big fan of combining the right sort of nutritional or therapeutic supplements to achieve wellness, boost immunity, or optimiSe fertility.
You probably saw a glimpse of this is my article SURVIVING THE CORONAVIRUS.
After a bit of research, I decided that there needs to be two main approaches to treating my blocked fallopian tube:
- I need to clear the blockage
- I need to clear out the toxins released from the unblocking from system otherwise they would be floating around and can affect conception.
When it comes to using herbal remedies or natural treatment for fertility issues, it takes a good solid 3 months to see results, but I gave myself a target of 5 months: 3 months on the enzymes and two months on toxin-removal
Here are the items I used:
PS – you do not need to use the exact same brands as pictured below, but you should use the recommended dosage mentioned.
So, for example, if you decide to buy your Bromelain from your local chemist, you should get 500mg Bromelain capsules only, not 250mg and not Bromelain + something else (eg echinacea etc) capsules.
Goldenseal capsules 500mg – to clear out infection.
Enzymes – these need to be taken on an empty stomach, so I would take these 1st thing in the morning on waking up, 30 minutes before my 1st meal.
Then around 4pm, after my last meal was 2 hours before, I would take them again
These enzymes are the main stars for dissolving internal scar tissue, tube blockages and minor uterine fibroids.
Quercetin: 500mg or 1000mg
Bromelain: 500mg capsules
Serrapeptase: 250000 iu
Nattokinase: 2000 fu
PS – if you cannot find Wobenzym, simply use the other enzymes listed above.
Within days, I started to feel light and less bloated.
Quick Tip: if you have gluten or dairy digestion issues, these enzymes will certainly help!
I continued the enzyme therapy for the entire 3 months and for 2 months, I did a cleanse using:
Mixed Greens powder – you can buy premade mixed green powders or make up your own, mixing together equal parts of the powdered greens/herbs, shake the mix well and add a teaspoon mixed in 250ml to 500ml of water every day.
You can add them to smoothies too.
The herbs that MUST be in the Mixed Greens powder are spirulina, chlorella, nettle, chlorophyll, nettle, parsley.
All these enrich the blood and detoxifies the system.
I would take this drink in the morning.
Spice Tea – this would be drunk in the evening.
It is another fantastic detoxifier and purifier, and flushes out toxins from the body.
PS – If you find it hard to sleep after taking this drink in the evening, have it earlier in the day instead.
I mixed together 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder with 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder and a pinch of black pepper to 250ml or 500ml of warm water. You can add a teaspoon of honey for taste.
In addition, I took:
If you noticed, I tend to prefer either powdered herbs/greens and capsules over tablets.
This is because these routes of administration tend to be better absorbed into the body for maximum efficacy.
About 10 months after our last scan that diagnosed me with a blocked tube hydrosalpinx, we had a follow-up scan.
And the tube was completely clear!!
The medic said” are you really sure you had a hydrosalpinx? I cannot see anything here.”
Referring back to my medical notes, he noted that indeed I DID have the blocked tube, but it was now gone.
Later another scan and test confirmed it was really gone.
Years of delay and secondary infertility resolved in under a year!
And then 10 months later, Baby 2 arrived.
Now, these remedies are nothing new – many women have been using them for years to dissolve minor fibroid tumors, unblock tubes or even prevent uterine scar tissue following birth.
I am surprised that it is not more widely known and so many people just automatically resort to drastic measures like surgery.
So, I hope this information is useful and helpful to you or someone you know.
It is normal for a couple to fall pregnant within 12-18 months of regular intercourse. Much earlier, if the woman is in her mid-twenties or younger.
If you are not falling pregnant, I highly recommend getting diagnostic tests done; this will include blood panels, hormone levels testing, and scans.
Identify what the problem is and then try to resolve the issue as naturally as possible.
I felt this article is most appropriate this time as, historically, our Lady was pregnant with the Baby Jesus.
To those struggling with infertility, may you be blessed with the fruit of the womb within 12 months or less.
