Womb Care Medicinals: Resurrecting the center of creativity and power

The womb is not only the center of the physical body, but in many ancient traditions, it is the mirror of the whole cosmos, alive and accessible in one's earthly body. It is both physically and spiritually the creative center of the body, and is associated with the place of knowing connection, innate power, and alignment.  On the physical level, we can see the correlations- the womb being the part of our bodies that literally bears and nourishes life, whether we actually choose to have children or not.  The mysteries of the womb, where one bleeds for days but does not die, have earned the curiosity and respect of many traditions across the globe. It is no doubt that the pervasive attack on women's bodies and rights contemporarily is a critical factor affecting the health of our wombs and the empowerment of womb-carrying* people at both the physical and energetic levels.  The disturbing commonplace occurrence of sexual violations, the disrespect and undermining of the feminine both socio-politically and interpersonally, and the pervasive objectification and exploitation of the female body and experience are but a few of the influences that attack and interfere with the gifts and well-being of our wombs and overall existence as womb-carriers.  The suffering body of "Mother" Earth is another reflection of these violations and the burden being bore by womb-carrying bodies in this present time.

In our contemporary cultures, most of us have to do extra work to keep our wombs and internal organs healthy.  Many of us have womb imbalances as a result, or struggle with how to embody our personal power in a good way. This has become normalized, in fact many of us do not recognize the symptoms of our distressed wombs until its starting to cause major disruptions in our lives. This often ends up being when we start a difficult menopause, have trouble conceiving, or have other extreme symptoms that are disrupting our rhythm in day-to-day life, or our ability to step into our deeper purpose.  This is not our fault. We have not been educated well about the workings of our body and spirit, and how to best maintain, especially in these times. 

This line of products is dedicated to reclaiming and uplifting the full respect, empowerment, and integrity of both the feminine, and the womb- in all its gender-varying expressions.  These products focus on offering needed nourishment to our wombs and the organs of our body that support its most optimal functioning, honoring the value of our wombs and the powerful rites of passages that womb-carrying people experience in all stages of life (including the much neglected initiation known as menopause), and generally preventing some of the common challenges that are faced by womb-carrying people in our current state both emotionally-spiritually and physically. Energetically (across all gender and biological lines), this line also focuses on supporting creativity, as well as helping us feel more fully empowered in our personal power and potential in a balanced way. Given the personal and complex nature of our individual bodies and experiences, please note that these are basic tonics and that more specific challenges are best addressed by personal consultations and customized formulas.  We all have our own individual needs and constitutions that are always more effectively addressed with personal attention.  If you are facing serious or acute symptoms, please refrain from utilizing these and instead seek personal consultation (I am available and can also refer you to other trustworthy natural health practitioners or midwives who specialize more specifically in womb care).

*I use the term womb-carriers as opposed to women, acknowledging that there is a wide spectrum of gender expression, and that not all individuals born with wombs identify as women or as feminine and nor do all who identify as women have wombs, but may still find relevance in the above mentioned information and/or the corresponding products. I credit the coinage of this term to Sara Flores, Certified Nurse Midwife & Nurse Practitioner in Women and Transgender's Health, and founder of ReCLAIM Midwifery and Healing Services.
