#1 - "Opening Up" About Uterine Fibroids | Kanika Pulliam
Show Notes

The Women's Health, Wisdom, and... WINE! podcast is a biweekly conversation with practitioners, providers, patients, and healers about complex reproductive medicine and women's health challenges, the value of an integrative approach to these challenges, many of the women's health topics you're already thinking about and uncomfortable talking about, and my personal favorite... WINE!

This week's episode focuses on living with uterine fibroids from a patient's perspective. From clinical manifestations (signs and symptoms) and diagnosis to conventional treatment and integrative approaches, we discuss the fundamentals of living with and healing from uterine fibroids without the use of high dose painkillers, administration of deleterious oral contraceptive pills, and fruitlessly invasive surgical procedures.
