This thing, this condition..... it doesn't need to rule your life! I promise :) You can lead a normal life and have all that you ever wanted. For many years, I didn't believe it was possible. I thought I just had to deal with it, along with all the side-effects from the pill and the operations every couple of years. Hey, I thought..... that is just Endo! Right? WRONG!
I made a change. I stopped all that and chose a different path. I chose a path where I put my body first. I gave it all that it needed to feel better and took out all the stuff that was making it feel bad. That meant, taking out the sugar, the dairy, the meat and the gluten. This is what worked for my body and what it needed. It didn't want the heavy fats from the meat and dairy and it certainly didn't want the sugar rushes from those chocolate bars I was scoffing down each day to alleviate the pain!
Here's the thing. We are told so much stuff about Endometriosis, aren't we? We are first told that it is all in our head, that the pain couldn't be anything serious. It isn't visible to others or even on an Ultrasound, so there's nothing wrong.... sure :(
Then we are told, that it can't be cured and that our only options are hormonal treatments and operations. SURE :(
How depressing this stuff all is! I am really not surprised when I hear stories of women with Endometriosis just spending their days in bed with pain-killers. We are not given hope or opportunity to heal our bodies with these suggestions.
Well, I have some good news for you. I can give you hope and I can give you REAL answers. Endometriosis is an imbalance in our bodies and we need to correct that imbalance. No amount of hormonal treatments is going to do that. It comes down to figuring out what minerals and vitamins are bodies are lacking and supplying the body with heaps and heaps of these. Guess what? They don't come in the form of a tablet or a supplement or a drug. They come in the form of really good quality foods. Rich, nutrient dense foods with super powers built into them.
See, the body knows what to do. It knows how to heal. We simply need to provide it with the tools to do that.
It takes time. We have been putting in so many of the wrong foods, pain-killers and synthetic hormones for so long, the body has to flush all that stuff out first. But, it will get there. It will heal and it will regain balance. It wants to. It wants to be super healthy.
Please stop believing that this is permanent. That this is all you have to choose from and that the status quo needs to remain as such.
You can change and you can improve your health. It all starts with taking just one step. I created a blog about my journey with Endometriosis and using natural methods to heal. You can find a heap of free information on what I did and how you can be pain free too! Visit me on www.endoangel.com. There is also a private facebook support group and a Newbie Section on the site.
I want to send you my biggest hug because as an Endo Sister we are all in this ride together.
