Eggplant, Avocadoes and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs.

It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
