I remember when I finally decided to choose the natural health route for my endometriosis. I had been to my specialist gynecologist and he presented me with a choice. I could either have another surgery or I could try another hormonal treatment as an alternative to the current one I was on. See, the one I was on just wasn’t working for me. I had nasty side effects and it still didn’t seem to have reduced my endometriosis. I was permanently tired, moody and it just felt like endometriosis had controlled every aspect of my life.
The hormone treatment option was the Mirena coil. It was to be inserted into me, without any kind of anesthetic or anything! I went and got the coil from the pharmacy and the thing honestly looked alien to me! It was so long and big! As I sat there in the doctor’s office, with him discussing the method of inserting the coil and the likely pain that I would experience and how I would have this plastic thing inside of me, something just didn’t feel right. I felt numb, somehow, as if all this wasn’t really happening. As if it was all just a horrible nightmare. How could he really think that I would want to stick that nasty thing up there, and then have it live inside of me? The whole idea of it was just too much. I felt scared, frustrated and trapped.
I then thought, perhaps surgery is my only option. Perhaps I should just have it all taken out—cut it out and be done with it! I mean, it couldn’t get any worse, could it? Though it seemed drastic to me to go there, I also didn’t feel any desire for children at the time and if it meant I could be pain free and enjoy life again, it would be better… right?
Thing is, I did more research and I discovered that having a hysterectomy is still not a guarantee that the endometriosis is finally gone. It is still no definite cure for endometriosis and at the end of it all, you could have nasty effects from having to go on hormonal treatments due to the imbalances that occur by not having your womanly bits in place. This seemed somewhat risky to me.
So, now what? What do I do? How do I stop this nasty endometriosis from spreading and taking over my body? It all felt like some horrible movie. You know the ones, where the monster is chasing you and you are trapped in a room with no way out? I felt like that, on that day. I remember going home and crying for at least 2 hrs. Why did I have endometriosis? Why was it all so hard to deal with? Why couldn’t they just find a pill that would make it all go away? Why are there so few choices?
What I didn’t realize at the time and something which I want you to realize too… there is a third choice. It is a longer road and it will take more dedication and commitment but it is better, in my opinion. It is the natural choice. It is saying NO to drugs, NO to surgery and NO to hormonal treatments. It is about understanding our bodies and understanding that endometriosis is merely an imbalance which we can rectify. We can get it under control and manage it by changing what we eat and how we live.
I know this because I have done it. I changed my diet, I changed my lifestyle, I simply made better choices for my body and started to truly look after myself. I was more in touch with the real me than I ever was on all those hormonal treatments and drugs. I was finally on a path to healing.
As I sit here and write this today, I want you to really think about what feels right to you. What is your inner self, your gut, telling you about how to deal with endometriosis. Does it want to have surgery, bits cut out, being put under anesthetic? Does it want to have strange hormones put into it, to make it lose itself and feel completely foreign? Does it want to feel pain and suffering?
No, your body wants to heal. It is trying desperately to heal. Endometriosis is a reflection of our own body’s way of protecting us from harm.
Why don’t you try giving your body a real path to healing? Why don’t you give it all that it needs to heal? Give it real nourishment, a calm space to breathe and reconnect with itself and let go of all the anger that you are holding onto.
Give your body a chance. Just 6 months and you will be amazed at the difference it can make. It is an amazing wealth of knowledge and it knows how to get better. You just have to supply it with the right tools to do so.
I know I am incredibly glad I chose to explore the natural alternatives for my body. It has made a huge difference to everything in my life. I don’t experience endo pain any more and I have a completely different outlook on life. I dare you to explore this way of life too.
I have created an online program, which will give you a strategy to follow to get results faster for your natural healing. You deserve to give your body a chance to heal.
