Each and every day my inbox is filled with stories from women from around the world who are suffering because of Endometriosis. They are desperate for answers and just want the pain and struggles to stop. I know what that feels like and I remember those days so well. The endless suffering with Endometriosis… the feeling of not knowing how to move forward, the desperation of just wanting some relief and the incessant feeling like there had to be better options for me to try.
Luckily, I am able to support these women with my approach through the work that I do… however, there are many 1000s of women who never find me or hear of my work and remain on the dreaded merry-go-round of hormone treatments, surgery and more pain medication.
I know that my message only reaches a very small percentage of women who suffer from Endometriosis each and every day. A drop in a huge ocean of women suffering.
So, I came up with a solution to reduce all of the suffering from Endometriosis around the world…

Let’s create a ripple effect of change for women with Endometriosis!
Even if you are at the beginning of your journey, know that your message is important for a woman out there who is currently suffering from Endometriosis. Share whatever you can to give her hope and encourage her to apply the same things that have helped you.
I encourage you to pick one of the following ideas:
- Find a woman on Facebook you can befriend with and share with them. This could be in our own support group or within a different one. Friend with her and private message her. You will give her so much hope and you will feel amazing for changing her day.
- Recognize someone at work who takes days off at the same time of the month. They could have Endometriosis and you could help each other.
- See if your friends or friends’ friends might have Endometriosis or just experience extreme period pain. You could help them recognize they have the condition or at least alleviate some of the symptoms.
- Join a support group and share your story.
- Share your story on my blog. Please email me through my contact page to find out more.
- Respond and connect with women on my blog.
Whatever feels doable and easy to you. Your mission is simply to change the life of just ONE WOMAN this month.

Do you have some other ideas on how we can reach more women with Endometriosis? Do you have a blog to share? A website where we can post our stories? How do you feel we can change the suffering of thousands of women?

Oh hun. My heart goes out to you and your daughter. Please know that you are in the right place and that there are 100% natural options that are far more effective and will offer her real relief. A hysterectomy brings with it, it’s own issues and doesn’t guarantee the pain will go away.
Start by looking at her diet and what we can incorporate that is more soothing and healing for the body. Focus on highly anti-inflammatory foods. I am happy to organise a consult for a list of suggestions to help her. Reach out to me or book through my website above. Big hugs, Melissa
My 15 year old daughter is so bad with endo pain each month, the doctor has told her to take 4 ibuprofen, 3 time’s a day(at least!)… and to get on birth control pills and to take anti-depressants and get therapy. My heart is breaking. And with her last two periods, we were seconds from walking into an emergency room because the screaming and vomiting was so bad, she was mentally/emotionally/physically traumatized. She felt like she was being attacked and violated. The drugs are a horrible option because we have major IBS in our family… and she has ehler’s Danlos. …so her tissues are weak and become damaged by drugs. So desperate and scared. She cries so hard and begs for a hysterectomy to make it stop.
Find a female gynaecologist who will take you seriously
I was finally diagnosed by one who suggested laparoscopy…
She then removed every bit of uterine tissue in places where it should not be..with laser microsurgery….it took about 8 hours all in all…
Hormone treatment was not an option because I was 39 years old at the time and that would have made it impossible to get pregnant….
I have not had any complaints since..
Thank you Angelika! 🙂
I love your video. Brilliant concept!
