|Greetings in the final weeks of 2022!|
If you didn’t already know, one of the major driving forces behind Cervical Wellness is to put the power of women’s health back into the hands of the women themselves, and away from the allopathic gynecology-system.
I acknowledge that yes, there have been wonderful inventions and advancements in medicine that have helped prevent women from unnecessary pain, difficulty, and death when it comes to their pelvic health, but that doesn’t negate the real harm that this field of medicine has inflicted on women for the past 150 years (please watch the ‘A Little Bit of History of Modern Gynecology’ free webinar I shared back in September if you want to know more about this).
There have been little to no advancements in method of care and practice within this field of medicine, and most of the treatment options end up with a hysterectomy being the only option provided if the first option doesn’t work.
This, to me, is a big big issue.
The other week a community member sent me a news article about how the male-dominance of gynecology has hindered advancement in this field and have overall blocked research
It’s quite illuminating and speaks to what I’ve been sharing about re: history of modern gynecology, and I wanted to share it with you because I think it’s that important of a conversation that needs to be had and have more awareness around.
Here’s the article:
(She also sent me this article below, but I no longer have ‘institution access’, meaning I’m not enrolled in a college or university. If any of you are and would be willing to download it for me and send me a copy, I’d be oh so grateful! I could spend the $32 to get the article, but I wanted to crowdsource first to see if that avenue works out.
I’m excited to see that this conversation is spreading and that more of us are calling for a change in the field of modern gynecology.
As always, thank you for being a part of this community and for sharing with me articles, information, stories, and more as we walk down the path of our cervical healing journey and witness its ripple around the world.
Wishing you a happy holidays,
