Fibroids affect 80% of African Americans and 70% of white women by age 50. The Fibroid and Reproductive Care Center was established in 2012 to care for women suffering from the heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, painful intercourse and problematic pregnancies that accompany this condition. Another main focus is to educate our clients about the alarmingly high rates of hysterectomy to treat this common, but benign condition. At The Fibroid and Reproductive Care Center, we work with you to not only treat fibroids, but to prevent their growth and recurrence using healthy eating and lifestyle changes. Dr Miller-Thrasher combines a combination of natural remedies- high dose vitamin D, avoidance of phthalates and remedies not yet routinely available for a uniquely wholistic approach to this condition. Where surgery is needed, minimally- invasive options remain our procedure of choice. Dr Miller- Thrasher has authored a book that takes the confusion out of managing your fibroids. “The Innovative Woman’s Guide to Managing Fibroids Without Hysterectomy” will be available in hard copy and e-books.
