ENDOMETRIOSIS SUPPORT PAGE
The month of March is Endometriosis awareness month! In this month I will be providing resources on #endo & PCOS stories, blog pieces, tips and more on this page. If you would like to stay updated on this kind of content or have suggestions, please feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
This topic is very important to me since it is something I live with. We as a community do not have enough information, resources, helpful coping medications, or well informed doctors. Some people have it an have very little symptoms and others have so many life threatening or altering things happen to them. It not only takes a toll on the physical part of the body but mental, emotional and spiritual.
Having other people that have walked through some of the battles, can be a breath of fresh air.
What is Endometriosis ?
"In the simplest terms, endometriosis is tissue similar to the lining of the uterus that is found outside the uterus, on other parts of the body. This rogue tissue creates lesions that become inflamed, can bleed, and break down causing pain, scar tissue, and inflammation. Endometriosis is not only found in the pelvis. It is also often found on places like the bladder, bowels, appendix, diaphragm, and even lungs. Endometriosis should be treated as a whole-body disease." -The Endo Co
If you get a change and want more in depth information, please visit The Endo Co website. Their founder, Jenneh Rishe, has been such an incredible resource in my journey. She has such an amazing spirit and personality. Working as a registered nurse over 11 years, and a lot of different departments under her belt really gave her the knowledge to better advocate not only for herself but the community she has behind her!
To visit my growing collection of endometriosis and chronic illness blog posts, click here. You will find posts to help your faith, some tips to help with managing and living with this condition. Please be patient with me as I grow this content :) If you have specific questions or things you want me to cover, let me know!
Here are some books that people have told me to read about endometriosis. I have purchased them, but have not read them, yet. If you have one that you have read and want me to post, let me know so I can share! (click on photo to read about the book or purchase it.)
Food, workouts, products & more
Check out my Pinterest board that has an array of items that you can check out to help you out. It has some foods that are endo friendly. There are recipes on there that are not endo friendly (ie. gluten, soy, dairy) just substitute with your favorite safe option! Just because you are changing things up, it does not mean you have to lose flavor! you will see some products I purchase and some workouts to help you remain active at different intensities. With endo, one day you can do an hour of HIIT and the next you are struggling to do a mile. Read labels and consult your doctor or you nutritionist before starting new working or diet regimens. I am human, and add some things that may not be the best for YOUR body or even mine.. lol.
