Her grueling journey included 15 surgeries, five IVF cycles, a devastating miscarriage and even her heart stopping on the delivery table.
Coach Gessie’s story gained national attention when ESSENCE published her profile titled “My Fertility Journey” in the 2014 Mother’s Day issue sparking a chain reaction of transformation that included releasing her bestselling book HOPE BEYOND FIBROIDS: Stories of Miracle Babies & the Journey to Motherhood, becoming a Nutritionist & Health Coach, hosting her DETOX LIVING podcast and founding TheDeToxNow.com—an integrative online wellness provider of advocacy, detoxes, programs, nutritional counseling and coaching services on a mission to dismantle systemic racism in the health system and end inflammatory diseases such as Fibroids, Diabetes, Heart Disease and more. She educates and empowers BIPOC women and families on how to achieve optimal health, secure equitable health services, and prevent and heal diseases holistically through what she calls DETOX LIVING—Life FREE of Toxic Thoughts, Habits, People and Definitely Foods!

ABOUT | The Detox
In January of 2016, Nutrition & Health Coach Gessie Thompson, and Naturopathic Doctors & Nutritionists Dr. Amsu and Dr. Amun, partnered to form the Hope Beyond Fibroids Elimination Program (HBFE). HBFE is a proven four part transformative holistic program that leverages coaching, nutrition planning, herbal supplements and daily practices to ELIMINATE and PREVENT reproductive diseases such as Fibroids, PCOS, Infertility, Endometriosis and more.
The results have been overwhelming with women reclaiming their lives after being consumed and trapped by these diseases physically, emotionally and spiritually—some for decades. Not only are “Hope Sisters” around the world now living free of fibroids (eliminating up to 50 documented in one case alone), cramps, cysts, endometriosis and enjoying the pinnacle benefits of our program, the “Happy Period” AND their miracle babies (after battling infertility for up to 12 years). But, we have also received testimonies that many are now living free of chronic inflammatory diseases such as Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Sickle Cell Anemia, Hernias, Arthritis and more!
As we approach the two-year anniversary of the program, a review of our patient case studies has revealed a common denominator amongst those unleashing their power to heal—the Detoxes that we have built into the Hope Beyond Fibroids Elimination Program for those who want to accelerate their results.
This alerted us to the need to make these detoxes available for people not only looking to CURE the aforementioned chronic diseases, but to those on a mission to PREVENT them and transition to a healthy lifestyle. The spark has ignited into the birth of The DeTox.
We are launching with our three signature DeToxes:
