I ordered another eBook a few weeks ago, called the Violet Protocol or Endometriosis Bible—I will do a full review of the book soon—please don’t buy it in the meantime! In the book she claims to have dramatically reduced her Endometriosis or be symptom-free. So I asked her why she didn’t use the words “cure” in her book.
She described that to her there was no “cure” for Endometriosis and that if we reverted back to a “normal” diet, we would be predisposed to the condition and it would likely come back.
To me this was an interesting perception.
I have found that my experience with Endometriosis has broadened my mind so much on foods and healing that far outreach just the simple condition of Endometriosis. Since researching foods and what they really contain and how they are made, the idea of eating them again seems illogical, regardless of whether I would “reduce symptoms” or “cure Endometriosis.” To me, this makes no sense. Food is our source of energy and vitality. If we feed a plant nothing but dirty water and force it to live in poor soil, chances are it will form a disease, fungus or die. It doesn’t mean the plant is “predisposed” to a particular fungus. It just means the plant is not getting what it needs to fulfill its life force.
Going back to basic life principles… our bodies are made up of cells. Each cell requires 4 simple things to survive: sunlight, water, nutrients and fats/good oils. If our supply of these is lowered due to our environment and diet, chances are the cell will suffer. The first organ to experience this suffering is our liver. It is the one that gets dumped with all the negative foods and toxins we ingest into our bodies. Depending on the extent of the imbalance, it would then manifest in a particular organ. However, any imbalance within the body will cause disease of some sort. It is a blockage in the system. Things are not flowing as they should. How the body chooses to express this imbalance will vary from person to person. In some of us, it will be Endometriosis, in others it might be bowel problems or heart problems or… well, you get the idea.
So, why did we develop Endometriosis and why doesn’t everyone else have it then?
To me, it comes down to three things:
1. Our “pre-disposition” is perhaps more hereditary than anything else.
I have already made this connection with so many Endo women! Our livers have likely been through something, chances are when we were very young, perhaps you have had jaundice or something else? I recognized this family trait in my family a few months ago and it was a lightbulb moment for me.
2. What we ate when we were in our teens
It is crucial during our teenage years to really give our bodies the best source of nutrients we can. I know that my diet contained very few greens and much more hamburgers, fries and alcohol! This is the start of developing our endocrine system and chances are we have not given it the nutrients it needed back then. Not to worry, we can make up for it now.
3. Our emotional struggles affect our health
No matter what you believe about the body, there is one thing which is always unexplained and it is the effect of our emotions on the body and its healing. I believe it weakens the body’s overall state and this allows imbalances to form much easier. I have recognized how many of us have histories filled with pain, sadness, anger and resentment. None of which are easy to shake!
For years I thought Endometriosis was a mystery. I didn’t understand why I developed it, why it grew and why I had to get it so young. I used to hate it so much. What I am realizing now is that Endometriosis wasn’t a curse. It was a hidden blessing. It has allowed me to see what really GIVING to my body is all about. It goes beyond just Endometriosis and feeling better with it. It is about giving my body the best foods, the best herbs, the best supplements and the best of everything so my individual cells are superduper happy and everything works in perfect balance. It reaches into feeling truly AMAZING! It opens my mind, my creativity and my energy levels.
This is way better than just being Endo free! This is about having the healthiest, happiest body!
What I am getting is that disease is not a mystery at all. It makes perfect sense. If we feed our bodies rubbish, it will get sick. If we feed our bodies everything that it needs, then it will be happy. So, give your body the best water, the best nutrients, the best oils (omega 3) and the best environment, stress-free! Give yourself heaps of time in the sun, in happiness, in laughter and reverberate joy throughout your body! Your individual cells will feel that and you will automatically feel better!
Are you really giving your individual cells everything they need to be happy? Think basic biology and it all becomes so much more logical and simple!
