When I first got Endometriosis my whole family was kinda in shock about what it actually was that I had. It wasn’t the sort of thing that most people would have heard about. We know about certain diseases and conditions but somehow Endometriosis is one of those weird ones that most people dismiss somehow or don’t really get – unless a family member or friend has it. Which sadly is becoming more and more.
The thing is, the first question was whether my mother had the condition and whether it was a hereditary condition which my sister my get too. Now, unfortunately I think the label “Endometriosis” was only introduced in our generation – late 1900’s. My mother may have had the condition for years but not even known it. She also had my sister and I quite young, her early 20’s, so perhaps she had no obvious symptoms. We are having children later and later and having our periods earlier and earlier, so perhaps it is more apparent now that we have Endometriosis as we suffer with period pains and the associated issues of Endometriosis for longer, making the condition more obvious and more prolonged, which is obviously going to make it worse.
So, the question remained, did my mother pass on her condition of Endometriosis onto me? Did she possibly suffer from Endometriosis without knowing it?
Thing is, there are some interesting things about my family which I have only recently noticed as being a correlation with Endometriosis or more importantly the liver. The liver, according to the Chinese is the harvester of emotions and is our “cleaning” organ. My mother is now in her late 60’s and has been suffering from serious colon issues, having had parts of it removed and being diagnosed with Chron’s Disease. Her digestive issues have been going on for years. She has also always suffered from headaches, tension in the shoulders and bloating.
My sister on the other side has had adult acne for about 10years now. She has also suffered from digestive issues. The rest of my family have had cancer of the bowel and various digestive issues.
If you have watched my videos or read some of my blog entries, you may have already noticed the interesting correlation with my family and me. Yes, all of these conditions relate back to the liver. Yip, so simple but perhaps it is ultimately the liver which my sister and I have inherited rather than necessarily the conditions which are the result of a poor liver. The other big indicator was that my mother had another child, when I was very young who died of Hepatitis B which is a distinct liver condition.(I don’t really remember but is is sad :()
I was also born with Jaundice which is also a disease of the liver. So, all and all it is really obvious now…..
So, did I inherit Endometriosis? Maybe not the label “Endometriosis” but rather the reason for it – a poor liver function.
Now, if you read some homeopathic books it makes this correlation too. They refer to them as Myasms. They explain these as inflammatory conditions.
What correlations have you noticed in your family? Do you share similar digestive, skin or hormone related conditions?
The good news is that you can prevent giving your children any related liver conditions by ensuring you heal your liver before you have any 🙂
