we're a couple from Berlin and have our own endometriosis story. The short version: Lap done, (most) endometriotic implants removed, the hormone therapy left her extremely depressed and it didn't really help with the pain. So we decided to ditch the hormones entirely. A few months later, the painful periods came back (but her mood was back to normal, yay!).
After trying different treatments and wanting to change both our lives for the better, we discovered nutrition has a huge influence on endometriosis. We read tons of books, blogs, and medical publications and found that you can actually help your body not only reduce or even get rid of the painful symptoms, but prevent it from growing new endometriotic implants!
One thing we really noticed about the endometriosis communities is that there is a lot of sadness and pain (duh!) when we find out that we have endometriosis. So we are all about turning this around to a positive challenge rather than a sad verdict!
- You can get symptom free by changing your nutrition
- It's a couple issue, your partner is part of the journey
- You can have tons of fun and enjoy life (and food!!!)
So, right now we're collecting tons of amazing, delicious recipes that are tweaked so that they help your body to fight endometriosis. Our hope is to create our own youtube channel with recipe videos, a blog and, maybe one day, get a book going that can help millions of couples.
Here's the beginning of this journey: We're now looking for at least 10 women to join us as our first group to exchange and test ideas and recipes, try out new ways of improving your health and giving us and each other valuable feedback.
Who's with us?
Lots of love from Berlin!
