Often, books lure you in with lofty titles and promises only to leave you feeling duped and disappointed after you read them, but this book is different; it delivers. Mae Michelle leaves no stone unturned when it comes to advising women about the cutting-edge, medical procedures currently available to safely and effectively treat uterine fibroids. She reveals how she overcame massive fibroids by choosing a new, advanced, non-surgical medical procedure that allows doctors to target and destroy fibroids, with pinpoint precision, without damaging one’s uterus and fertility. Michelle tells how she was able to simply hop off of the treatment table and return to normal activity the same day—no incisions whatsoever, and no painful and lengthy recovery time.
Mae Michelle dedicated years to researching advanced fibroid treatments. She was motivated by her strong desire to avoid major, invasive surgery and possible infertility. Michelle is aware that most women do not have the time or perhaps the inclination to conduct the type of extensive research that she did. That’s why she has packed all of her years of research into the book’s 167 pages, gladly saving women a tremendous amount of time and effort, which they would have to invest doing the arduous research themselves.
In addition to sharing information about fibroids and fibroid treatments, Mae Michelle also teaches you how to effectively navigate what can often be a very complex healthcare system. She tells you how to find and choose the best doctors, how to get insurance companies to cover newer procedures, how to obtain medical records, how to interview your doctor for the all important job of treating your body, how to deal with some of the inefficiency often present in busy medical offices—she even gives you comprehensive lists of questions to ask doctors during the consultations.
Michelle repeatedly encourages women to become informed patients so that they can put themselves in a position to challenge doctors and demand the best treatment for their fibroid conditions, and she goes out of her way to give you all of the tools you need to become an empowered, knowledgeable fibroid patient. She openly and honestly shares her knowledge and personal experiences with other women so that they too can beat fibroids.
This book certainly isn’t your typically cold, sterile, medical type book. The author also has an interesting and inspiring human story to tell, and she injects wit and humor into the narrative. This creates a good context for all of the medical information allowing for an easier, more enjoyable read.
“Freedom from Fibroids” is a must read for any woman contemplating major surgery for fibroids or simply seeking the best treatment for their fibroid condition. There is no reason why women should resign themselves to having major surgery if they are candidates for safe and effective non-surgical alternatives.
