Endometriosis, Fibroids and Ovarian Cysts

My Story

I know for sure that I had infertility for at least fifteen years of my life. 

I suffered from endometriosis, fibroids, and ovarian cysts. I had multiple surgeries and a whole host of other related health issues. I am now free of all these health issues, and I am a mother. 

25% of women of childbearing age in the US have undiagnosed endometriosis, a problem that can affect any menstruating woman from the time of her first period, potentially, until after menopause.

These health issues often go undetected, are misunderstood, or mistreated. 

I can help you better understand these problems, get to know their symptoms, and share with you how you can overcome them. 

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is when some of the inner uterine linings escape the uterus and enter the abdomen. 

It is quite normal for some endometrial lining to flow into the abdomen, and for our immune system to clear it up. However, if a woman’s immune system is depleted, or under stress, then the clear up cannot happen. 

Excess endometrial lining can stick to the back of the abdominal wall, intestines, liver, and many other areas causing several symptoms, including:

  • Debilitating pain 
  • Pain running down the legs 
  • Pain in the lower and mid-back 
  •  Pain associated with physical activityDebilitating pain 
  • Pain running down the legs 
  • Pain in the lower and mid-back 
  • Pain associated with sexual activity 
  • Heavy bleeding during and between menstruation 
  • Unexplained fevers 
  • Digestive problems 

Ovarian Cysts 

Ovarian cysts are often partnered with endometriosis, and so the symptoms will typically be the same. There are various types of ovarian cysts, but the cysts related to endometriosis tend to grow until they burst, and can cause hemorrhaging. All ovarian cysts must be attended to through the immune system and clearing up any abdominal irritation. 

Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are common benign tumors that grow in the wall, outer lining, or inner lining of the uterus. 77% of women in the US have fibroids of some kind, and generally, they are considered to be unproblematic by the medical community. 

However, fibroids can quickly become problematic and cause the following:

  • Pain in the back of legs due to fibroids pressing on nerves 
  • Pain during sex due to pressure in the pelvis 
  • Fibroids in the inner uterine lining can cause heavy bleeding, blood loss, and associated anemia
  • Pressure on the bowels causing constipation 
  • Swollen abdomen due to irritation in the intestine, ovaries, and uterus

A Common Cause

When I see people with endometriosis, fibroids, and ovarian cysts, I almost always find that they have irritation in the abdomen, uterus, and ovaries, and a depleted immune system. 

This is surprisingly good news – a common cause usually points to a common solution! 

When I had infertility and was suffering from many related health problems, I eventually found that all my symptoms pointed to candidiasis. That is an overgrowth of candida yeast in the body. 

Candida overgrowth puts so much strain on the immune system that it cannot complete normal tasks such as cleaning up that endometrial lining in the abdomen. Excess endometrial lining leads to toxicity and irritation in the abdomen and can cause the growth of fibroids and ovarian cysts. 

Now I’m not saying that if you are suffering from these three problems that you have candida overgrowth, but I am saying that you need to boost your immune system. 

A Common Solution

The answer is nutrition! 

Here’s a little list of things you need to include in your diet to boost your immune system and rid yourself of the toxins causing these problems:

  • Iron to combat blood loss and anemia 
  • Vitamin C to support the circulatory system 
  • Vitamin B to relieve pain 
  • Essential Fatty Acids to decrease inflammation, regulate your hormones and ease pain 
  • Magnesium and Calcium to relax cramping muscles and alleviate pain 
  • Fiber to help clear waste from the intestine, relieve constipation and flush out toxins
  • Protein to support a robust immune system and boost your mood
  • Drink water to allow your body to flush out toxins and help with pain relief 
  • The movement will help your body detox if you are in tremendous pain try getting in a hot bath and doing gentle stretches in the water 

My advice for anyone taking on a new nutritional program is to start slow. This will be a shock to your body, and you may feel worse before you feel better; headaches and fatigue are normal and temporary! 

I recommend that you start by increasing your protein intake. This will be the most important thing to get your immune system healthy and ensure that you can absorb nutrients and detox fully.
