I just wanted to send out a big thank you to everyone!
In the last 24 hrs, my blog went down and I lost the last two blog entries, along with any comments you may have sent in. It so happened that one of the last blog entries was about me feeling sad about my blog, so I had a few ladies concerned that I may have closed the blog down for good. Don’t worry, that is not going to happen any time soon, and I will be sure to let you know if that is what I intend to do. Thanks for all the concern though!
On some weird level, having the blog go down was kinda a good thing. I was able to really rethink its direction and its purpose and really focus on getting my message across a little better. See, I think we still view our healing from a purely western mentality. We think, “If I take this tablet or supplement, then that will heal my Endometriosis.” It is like we are still thinking singularly about our health and fail to recognize how much everything else we do to our bodies and mind influences our health. I often get comments and emails of women who say, “I am taking maca and aloe vera, which are all the supplements you suggest but I am still not feeling better!” I ask them about their lives, what they do for a living or whether they are exercising, how stressed out they are or whether they have emotions held inside from past experience and inevitably I find that there is heaps of other areas within their healing they can still approach. See, holistic healing is not singular in its nature. We can’t focus on one area of health. Our health comes from everything we do, each and every day.
I try to provide this range of holistic healing through my blog and one day I will get around to putting it all in a logical book or program format, but for now I would like you to explore the various topics in the different categories to get a more holistic approach to your health. Look at everything and incorporate as many natural and holistic methods as you can. Often times, we try things in a singular format, just yoga or just nutrition, whereas combining everything will give us a holistic and overall healing environment for the body. It is like a puzzle. Each little piece may seem insignificant but when you add them all together, they all fit perfectly and create a beautiful picture of health.
Also, I want to express that this blog is not here to make you feel guilty about things you haven’t done or are not doing. You can choose to take everything on board or you may choose to only take bits of information on board. You may not be in the right headspace to want to try new things or you may be feeling low or sad right now, and that is okay. Please don’t ever feel like things are impossible or that you need to prove something to me or anyone else. As long as you are searching for answers, the answers will come to you. Just take steps and you will move forward.
I have been on this road for a very long time. I have been dealing with Endometriosis for over 15 years and have traveled down many roads before coming to this one. The information I share is merely my experiences and things I am doing. They may not help you or you may not be willing to try them. That is okay. When you are ready, the information will be here for you. To some of you, my methods may seem extreme or impossible, like cutting out sugar, but I am prepared to do anything to get 100% healed from Endo. Maybe you are okay with just not having as much pain from endo, in which case these extremes may not be necessary. I guess, you have to ask yourself… how important is my health and probably more likely… how severe is my Endometriosis pain?
This blog is here to empower you, to give you as much information about ways to feel better. I want to give you as much as I can to help you make better decisions about your Endometriosis. Sometimes, this might mean that I give you a kick up the butt to encourage you to take action. Other times I might simply share a poem. I am also just a person and I also have emotions and share this world with you at the same time. I also go through stuff and express those things through this blog. Sometimes I read things in forums that make me angry or sad and that makes me want to fight harder to help other women. This may come across as preachy or pushy but my intention is always the same… I want to help you to help yourself by providing as much information as I can.
So, enough about all of this, tomorrow I will be back on track with the blog and I have heaps more research to share with you.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments from all the ladies who shared about how much my blog has helped them. I have them all in my inbox and will find a way to share them on my blog… but for now a big Thank you and a massive big hug to you all!

Thank you so much Liz. It is not easy. I am trying to make him as comfortable and happy as I can during this time. I am taking lots of Yoga and meditation time in the day to help me cope. I am in South-Africa and ringing and using the internet is not so easy here. I will write to you again when I am back home and things are a little more accessable. Lots of hugs back!
Thanks Sameera 🙂 It is my pleasure and your comments make me carry on with it and keep searching for answers 🙂
Thank you Melissa for the wonderful work you do with your blog. I truly love you and your work. Thank to you, I got my silver fillings in my mouth removed. I had no idea I was torturing and poisoning my body. I just want to say a heartfelt thanks for all the great research you do.
Thanks for sharing Lark. I have also discovered the connection with the liver but never made the connection to my father. Interesting one. I also believe it is closely linked to anger.
Thanks for everything, I love your blog. Every article you post is inspirational!
I am now trying Dandelion too. Have you seen this blog?
She writes about her experiences and says that endo is totally caused by liver disorder of some kind.
Interestingly I think the liver corresponds to the father, and this all goes back to your relationship with him. Mend that relationship and maybe our livers will mend too.
Thanks Wend. I love your comments and that you participate so much and incorporate your own research to share with everyone! It helps me to find new answers too 🙂
Thanks Crissi – big hug back for your lovely words and encouragement to keep writing! I am so happy I could make you not throw up ha ha! Hey, only good things can happen when you aren’t doing that 🙂
Hey Julie. Thanks for your comment and encouragement! I am so happy you have had such good results so quickly! That is awesome! Well done on that goal – tell yourself everyday and you will be amazed! “I will be pain free and healthy!” is what I say 🙂
I too enjoy your blog & find it immensely educational. Plus it’s just nice to know one is not alone.
Look forward to more of your articles!
I am so blessed and happy that I ran into this blog, Your blog puts a REAL face to endo and not just what the doctor says about “you have to live with it until”. With endo some days we do need a kick especially when you try something new and when that monthly time arrives you are still in a mess and just feel to give up. So keep on kicking us and yelling at our butts because they are times when we definitely need it. I call it being creul to be kind but I love it. Please keep us this blog because it certainly helps me and encourages me to keep trying. This month for the 1st time in God knows how long I actually had a period that I could get out of bed and not throw up. I just felt like I could come hug u and says thanks for all the advice and encouragement you have given. Please continue the good work and this blog.
Beautifully said! I’m so glad your back on.:) I totally agree with you that you have to heal your body as a whole, and application is everything. The techniques that you have mention do work or at least they have for me. It’s amazing to me that I am already seeing such a big difference in just 2 months.:) My personal goal is to become pain free without having to have the surgery. I hope I will be able to achieve that.:) Thank you so much for all the research you do. It has helped me to reclaim my life back.:) Hope you are having a wonderful pain free weekend!
Lots of Love and Hugs!
It is my pleasure Mimi! Glad I can help you and that I cause some yelling of information 🙂 Never alone! Here for you 🙂
I love your blog! I was thrilled when I happened upon it a couple months ago. You have helped me with tons of information. I will often yell out to my husband after reading your blog, sharing some great new info. You have also helped me to realize that I am not alone in this crazy endo adventure.
