Strength is more than mental resilience, but the courage to leap, knowing you will fall and it will suck, but you could be one step closer. As I embark on the infamous IVF journey, I hope to keep my HOPE strong, and share with you how my endometriosis, mindfulness, and strength will persevere.
Like many I began the journey into alternative methods to “healing” this condition. Beyond diet and supplements to relieve some of the pain I recently I decided to finally take the dive and do a consult for my local acupuncture and herbal healing/wellness group. The experience was lovely but came at a hefty price tag.
My provider did what all providers do and put my on drugs and wished me good luck. It wasn’t until I did the work thanks to our vast online data bases, that I began to make daily changes to benefit my health.
Yes, it sucks knowing that a non cancerous tissue is taking over my abdomen and has caused all the pain I endured with two unsuccessful pregnancies, but now I can look this thing in the face, call its name, and put it in its place.
While this space (for me) is a catch all of my feelings and journey through this crazy thing called life, I am focusing on how I can use holistic practices through both my yoga journey and dietary changes to help alleviate this pain.
