Sh*tty, terrible, awful stuff.
If you don’t know much about it, it is basically the growth of uterine lining in places that it should not grow. This tissue is still hormonally sensitive and it goes through the changes your uterine lining goes through monthly, including swelling and “bleeding.” The estimite is that about 6-10% of women have endometriosis. That means one in ten women may suffer from endometriosis. Wow.
And the really terrible parts of it are how often it isn’t diagnosed and how when it is diagnosed most every woman is told there is no cure. All she can do is get surgery to cut out the lesions and use hormones to handle it.
When my guest today on the Holistic Hormonal Health podcast was told she has endometriosis and there was no cure she was just 19 years old. When she was told there was no cure she started in on conventional treatments. This included major surgeries and hormonal drugs.
As a last resort, she decided to give natural methods a go, with only a 6 month limit before she decided she would get a hysterectomy if she didn’t see improvement in her symptoms.
But she did see improvement in her symptoms, in fact, today she has no symptoms of endometriosis at all anymore, simply due to her diligence in finding and using natural methods.
I have been following her for a while now, and knew I needed to get her on the HHH podcast to share her story and how she now helps women who have endometriosis and are looking for a way out of the never ending cycle of conventional “treatments.”
