THIS is a show brought to you by the founders of the Breathing Institute in Alberquerque NM. Dr. & Sifu Andrew Miles of the Canadian Institute of Oriental Medicine, has achieved a high enough skill in language, martial and medical science to have become a family doctor and body guard in Western China. The message is important to women in the African American Community. 

Statistics indicate that uterine fibroids develop most commonly in women who are in their 30s and 40s. About 30% of all women will develop fibroids by the time they reach 35. If the fibroids are surgically removed, there is a 10% chance they will grow back. This might be the reason that hysterectomies are so widely favored by doctors to treat uterine fibroids. Actually, uterine fibroids are the most common reason for hysterectomies in the United States.  Some studies estimate that up to 70% of all hysterectomies performed in this country are either unnecessary or can be avoided by using alternative approaches. Traditional Chinese medicine therapy for uterine fibroid tumors, using acupuncture and herbal medicine, is the oldest known form of medicine which is still in wide use today. <http://tcmpage.com/hp_uterine_fibroid.html>

Fibroids are common among women of childbearing age. African-American women are three times more likely to get fibroids than other women. In African-American women, fibroids also seem to occur at a younger age, grow more quickly, and are more likely to cause symptoms. <http://www.womenshealth.gov/minority-health/african-americans/uterine-fibroids.html>
