After reading an awesome little book from USA (Living Well With Endometriosis - Kerry-Morris) I thought I'd give a concoction of the recommended vits and mins a go. I've been feeling drained and fatigued for months, since the Endo returned after Lap, and the constant pain was unbearable. I was getting monthly spots in the same place, my pms was horrendeous and I had gained weight through comfort eating to ease the depression caused by the pain.
The concoction consists Selenium, vits A, C & E (in one tablet), Vit B complex tablet, Calcium and vit D (one tablet), Magnesium and vit C & Zinc (one tablet). It seemed a bit excessive as lots of tablets to take in one sitting, however the results have been mind blowing (bearing in mind this is the only change I have made recently). Within a week the pain had eased, within two weeks my skin had cleared up, the depression had started to lift. In the third week I knew my period was due, which meant extreme pain was to be expected. But it didn't happen!! Seriously my period started on the expected day, minimal period pain, bright red blood (instead of the muck that usually comes out due to burst chocolate cysts and build up), within three days it was all over and no pain.
One week since period and I feel amazing, not fatigued, full of energy, happy and pain free. I made this chance because I didn't want to be operated on again, to remove chocolate cysts, and I didn't want to start taking hormone treatments. I can't say it will work for everyone, but it seems to be working for me. My mood is better, I have energy for the first time in years and my skin has cleared up.
