Endometriosis Anxiety: What's Making It Worse?

I’ve spent the past several years getting really familiar with my endometriosis symptoms and associated mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety. Equally, I’ve spent the same amount of time observing and changing my lifestyle and diet habits, and tracking how my body responds to these. It’s become very clear to me that certain triggers make my endometriosis anxiety much worse, so I did some research into the data and science behind my theories and found some really interesting evidence - which I’ve pulled together in one of my latest columns for Endometriosis News.

Endometriosis Fatigue: Natural Ways To Boost Energy

So many of us have endometriosis fatigue, though not much is done about it medically. Whilst I’ve written about bigger lifestyle and dietary changes you could make to battle this symptom and feel more energised on a daily basis, if you’re in a energy slump right now and just have to get through, I’ve written about some of the natural ways to boost energy that I use to try and keep myself going

Oestrogen not only encourages the growth of endometriosis, but it also causes a heap of symptoms that can affect the quality of our lives and wellbeing, and are also very similar to endometriosis. This week for Endometriosis News I have been writing about how to lower estrogen dominance naturally.

The Link Between Oestrogen Dominance and Endometriosis

Fatigue? Depression? Brain fog? All symptoms of endometriosis, right? Well actually, there could be more to it than that, and by more to it, I mean oestrogen dominance. You may have heard of the link between oestrogen dominance and endometriosis, but it seems the actual symptoms of oestrogen dominance are much less talked about, especially how similar they are to the symptoms of endometriosis.

Financial Stress with Endometriosis

Recently money has been on my mind. It's not something we talk about that often in the endo community - but it's such a big factor. Financial stress with endometriosis is a problem I know many of us have to live with, whether it's because we don't get sick pay, the cost of insurance or maybe we've lost our jobs or have had to cut our hours due to the condition.

So I wanted to break that silence a begin a conversation about the problem and secondly, how we can empower ourselves to take control of our finances again.

Tracking Your Menstrual Cycle to Help Manage Endometriosis

To continue the theme of raising awareness for endometriosis management this March, I've recently written about tracking your menstrual cycle to help manage endometriosis.

There are many ways you can do this, and recently we've been reading Code Red in our Book Club, which has completely changed our understanding of our menstrual cycles, so we can work with them rather than against them. Getting to grips with your menstrual cycle can really help you understand what to expect and when to expect it when it comes to life with endometriosis.
