They told her to get a hysterectomy….
She was only 25….
It was my sister.
She was diagnosed with endometriosis. It’s a very painful condition where the tissue like the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium, grows outside your uterus.
She had the worst periods, severe cramps, and sex was extremely painful.
I can remember visiting her in the hospital. She was in so much pain, she looked at me and said “help me, please…I need to breath into that thing, it’s supposed help with the pain. Please get it for me. I can’t reach it.”
Of course I got it for her. I would have done anything to help her. And I can remember it like it was yesterday. I felt totally helpless.
My sister went to the doctor expecting to get support for her symptoms. Instead she received life-altering advice.
That was 40 years ago. Today, with the advancement of functional medicine I think things would be quite different.
We have so many more options to help us restore balance and optimize our health.
Options we didn’t have 40 years ago.
We have access to tools that can empower us change our lives.
Changes that can help us avoid those life-altering events. Tools to help us balance our hormones, so we don’t have to suffer. Like changing how we eat, healing our digestion, and learning to recognize and manage our stress.
I’ve been coaching women for a very long time. And I’ve seen it over and over again, women taking control of their health, making necessary dietary and lifestyle changes, and avoiding those life altering medical situations.
THIS is why I do this work. I remember feeling helpless and it’s why I decided enough was enough and started advocating for women’s health.
