In doing my online research I saw many places selling U-O-Clear but I didn't know much about it. Someone from the healing fibroids naturally yahoo group emailed me to recommend it (thanks!). so I took a closer look.
Here's an article on their site, which tells something about what's in it.
Sounds like it's a Chinese herbal medicine. The ingredients are familiar ones I've seen listed on various sites, and a couple overlap with things my acupuncturist has given me.
Here is my take on this kind of thing. I think that Chinese herbs are very powerful, and need to be matched to your invididual constitution and needs. So rather than ordering a generic product like this, I think it would be better to find a good acupuncturist and have them make an herbal formula tailored to you, which is what I am doing.
The only way in which I personally would recommend something like this is if you live in a remote area with no acupuncturists available, and are unable to travel somewhere where there is one. In that situation, it might be worth trying this. Just my opinion mind you.

How does one go about finding a good acupuncturist? I am not sure where to begin. I am located in NYC.

If you have already addressed this in another post, please let me know.

Hi MuffinGal

I would suggest looking at the website of ABORM, the board-certifying group for acupuncturists who specialize in fertility. Those will know the most about how to deal with fibroids.

If there is nobody in your area listed, you can go to to search for acupuncturists by location.

You can also go to Google and type in "fertility acpuncuture" or just "acupuncture" and the name of your city. Or go to Google Maps and look up your city, then type in "fertility acupuncture" or just "acupuncture" and see what it shows on the map. (Note these two methods often come up with different results)

Good luck!
