The Chinese herbalist suggested Zoe try an ancient diet which is said to regenerate your organs, balance your hormones and cleanse your body of unwanted toxins.
"I ate nothing for two weeks. Not a thing past my lips," she says of the program which involves the replacement of all foods with the consumption of a herbal concoction three times a day."And then six months after that was half a cucumber for a week. Then a boiled egg."
"You need to want to do it for your health. It was the most difficult 2 weeks. The first 4 days were agony," she explained further in her personal blog. "You have to give it 100%. It's not cheap. But it is a life fix and about the same cost as removing my endometriosis."
A few months after completing what she admits to being an "incredibly hard" wellbeing pregnancy program, the 34-year-old received the news she and Benji had been waiting to hear for years — they were going to become parents!

"To this day I get DM’s asking about the Chinese herbalist/doctor that I worked with to fall pregnant," she told Keshnee. "For so many people this was insane. The media was going crazy (saying) I was doing all these wild things and for me, that was the fuel I needed to say ‘I am going to fall pregnant this way and it's not just going to be a miracle, it’s going to be based on medicine that might not be the norm.'"
