ENDometriosis

Endometriosis : It’s Worth It

Let’s just say its worth it. I believe that these issues are in the genes. These tests helped me as well as lots of my family members suffering from Endometriosis, IBS, Autoimmune, and other chronic illnesses. It helped me be able to help myself more and gave me a place to start. Especially the Gluten Sensitivity Gene Test (Molecular HLA-DQB1 analysis). visit https://www.enterolab.com

Endometriosis : Google It

jenellephotography:

Well I’d like to tell you not to Google it and spare you the gruesome photographs and descriptions all over the internet. But I want you to Google it. Because Endometriosis is a disease that affects one in 10 women… that is almost as many as breast cancer. Raise awareness

wanderlust-nerdy-girl asked: I am glad that you are willing to post so much about this disease. I was diagnosed when I was 16, I'm now almost 23. I've had surgery and underwent 2 rounds of lupron injections to induce menopause. I've been rediagnosed and I'm terrified again.


Answer:

My goal is to raise awareness and help others along the way… I hope this blog helps! I also was also diagnosed young and underwent the injections for a year and a half. Basically the injections overstimulates the body’s production of certain hormones, which causes that production to shut down temporarily as a menopause like state. It is used as a hormonal chemo therapeutic drug. It just depends on the person how long the injections last. For some people it can last forever, while others a year or even less. My body rejected the injections after about a year and a half. I turned to other hormonal and medication treatments. Just this week my fiance and I decided to change that path to a more natural approach.

Doctors and Specialists sometimes shrug off Endo and other chronic “invisible” illnesses. A great place to start again would be lots of different opinions from different doctors and specialists… talk to your family doctor, several OBGYN, several Gastroenterologist (digestive specialist), and a Nutritionist that deals with inflammation and abdominal pain. Endo tends to drag along other interconnected issues that you may not know about yet.

You can help your body and help relieve pain SO much through your diet and of course pushing through exercises. I’ve been in tears while exercising before, but it’s worth it because it helps so much. I can send to you (and also post for everyone) diet and exercise tips.

You are wonderful, I hjope this helps relieve your fears. You will be just fine. Do not let this disease stop you or bring you down. Please keep your chin up. Wishing you pain free days lovely xo stay strong.

Getting to the bottom of things and progress after 4 days dealing with the paralysis and obstruction. Seeking more medical opinions Wednesday and follow up every 2 weeks. Now time to go home to do a detox soak, begin a more restricted diet, along with several new medications.

Thank you mind for staying focused. Thank you Steve for strength and calmness. Thank you family for support. Thank you doctors for knowledge and care. Thank you body, mind, and soul. I love you. Please heal.

Endometriosis : Hmm… What Next

I felt pretty great for almost a whole week!! Now… Three days have passed with these issues and they can’t figure out exactly what’s going on. The idea is that the kink in my bowel is getting worse and the scar tissue isn’t helping… Being brief but the medication didn’t work in the last 24 hours. So now it’s time for an x-ray. Then going back to my gastroenterologist. In which I’m hoping not to be faced with ultimatum. Another surgical procedure to remove the obstructions… Or just try new medications to continue as a temporary fix? Either way it will be difficult but I’m glad to have my fiancé right by my side through it all, my 6 year old son full of endless hugs, and family kept in the loop for that extra support.

Endometriosis : Stay Positive

I know it’s hard to stay positive. I know it’s hard to get up and conquer the day in which so many can effortlessly do. You are loved. You are beautiful. You are wonderful. You are kind. You are humble. You are strong. You are a great person with a great purpose in life.

Love is giving someone the ability to destroy you, but trusting them not to

Happiness depends upon ourselves.

Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.

The purpose of life is a life of purpose.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. Happiness is a direction, not a destination.

Thank you for existing. Be happy, be free, believe, forever young.

You know my name, not my story.

You have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.

Love is like glass, looks so lovely, but it’s easy to shatter.

Love is rare, life is strange, nothing lasts and people change.

Life is only bad if you make it bad.

Remember that life is full of ups and downs, without the downs the ups don’t mean anything.

I’m waiting to fall in love with someone I can open my heart to.

Love is not about who you can see spending your future with, it’s about who you can’t see spending your life without.

Life is a game for everyone, but love is the only prize.

Every day is special, so make the most of it. You could get a life-ending illness tomorrow so make the most of every day.

Be Honest with Yourself:

If you’ve tried a more loving approach to sharing what hurts in your relationship, and the narcissist in your life still won’t soften, you truly have done everything you can.

Endometriosis: Why it is important to keep weight OFF!!
1. Storage For Toxins: The toxins we accumulate in our diets and within our environment accumulate in our bodies fat cells. The more toxins we have, the more it will affect our hormone imbalance.
2. Overworked Liver: The liver is very closely related to our hormone levels and ultimately our Endometriosis developing further. When our livers become overworked, it is less able to flush out excess hormones and regulate what is already there. Hormone flushing can go on the back burner depending on weight.
3. Body At Full Optimum: Excess weight is placing strain on your body. This is naturally going to affect every organ that directly and indirectly relates to Endometriosis. To heal your body, you need to get it working properly. All of it and not just the Endometriosis part. That means giving it the very best chance of healing itself.
