After years of digestive issues and excruciatingly painful periods, Heather took to the internet to find the possible cause of her symptoms.
When she saw the word “endometriosis”, something felt right. She called her primary care physician and waited hopefully.
But Heather would have to wait much longer than expected.
A brief and unhelpful appointment with her primary care provider led to a referral to a gynecologist.
After suggesting that her debilitating period pain was “all in her head”, her gyno recommended laparoscopy to look for lesions associated with endometriosis. At the end of the appointment, hysterectomy was nonchalantly thrown in as another treatment option.
Heather left the office with a prescription for stronger pain medication and a heavy heart.
She was 27 years old.
Would she have to live with this debilitating pain for the rest of her life? Would she lose her uterus to a physical dis-ease she barely understood?
As a last resort, Heather contacted me.
By the time she sent me a message, she was mentally and financially exhausted. Feeling betrayed by her body and the allopathic medical system, Heather was ready to explore another way.
After working with hundreds of other clients like Heather with endometriosis, I’ve fine tuned my set of natural tools to see what really works.
In my Breathing, Bleeding, Being Online Menstrual Reclamation Course, I break it down for you.
Using diet, lifestyle, herbal wisdom, and specific exercise aligned with the menstrual cycle, this results-based course gives you real tools to start healing your relationship with your womb.
We’ve been getting requests for specific content around endometriosis for years now.
When I started writing this blog, I was hesitant – not because I don’t want to talk about this condition, but rather because I want to help those who suffer with endometriosis gain access to the revolutionary resources they DESERVE.
Unfortunately, so little research has been done into endometriosis that we still don’t have too many answers.
But while we’re unable to pinpoint the exact cause of endo, slowly but surely we’re figuring out natural and effective ways to mitigate pain, heal lesions, and even reverse it.
Endometriosis is a complex condition that affects 1 out of 10 women in their reproductive years. That’s over 170 million women worldwide.
Symptoms include painful periods, digestive problems, painful bowel movements, diarrhea and constipation, nausea and vomiting during menstruation, sharp pain during ovulation, pain while urinating, and other urinary issues.
And while endometriosis is a complex condition to treat, I want you to know that natural options that can help DO exist.
Bottom line, I support you and celebrate you in making a choice for your body that feels right and allows you to live a pain-free life.
But before you make a life-altering decision like opting for a hysterectomy, I want to give you access to the whole picture, and present to you some natural options.
