A comprehensive plan to alleviate the painful, debilitating symptoms of endometriosis, including tips to improve and optimize your diet, exercise, and lifestyle
Endometriosis is the women’s health issue that no one talks about. A chronic and incurable disease, endo effects one in ten women and girls, and yet it takes an average of ten years and eight doctors to be diagnosed. The most common solution was a hysterectomy. Until now. In Know Your Endo, Jessica Murnane shares her hard-won wisdom on how to survive—and thrive!—with endometriosis.
In this practical and heartfelt guide, Jessica shares a progressive five-week plan focused on learning a new management tool each week. Including sections on diet (with recipes!), exercise, products, and self-care rituals, Know Your Endo will ease you into a new lifestyle that will have you eager to get out of bed in the morning, even during your period. Insights from doctors in the field are woven throughout, as well as first-person accounts from many women who also suffer from this disease.
Finally, there is a non-surgical solution for this all-too-common disease. The Know Your Endo plan will get you started on your endo journey and help you take control of your body again.
Know Your Endo is an informative book about endometriosis that feels like the author is your friend. Jessica focuses on figuring out what is best for your body. She doesn’t give a one size fits all solution but gives a plan to figure out what works best for you. Jessica talks about her personal experiences and struggles, and she even mentions peeing in her pants at a fancy event. Many professionals share their knowledge as well as regular people share their experience. This book is real and honest. It starts with some information about endometriosis and then has a five week plan. Each week focuses on a specific aspect of life like stress management or food. There are prompts throughout the book to help the reader access their current situation and goals for the future. Each week has goals on what to work towards. This book really is about finding what works for you and making lifestyle changes to help you live with endometriosis. I highly recommend Know Your Endo for anyone that has endometriosis, suspects they might, has painful periods or wants to learn more about endometriosis.
Thank you Avery Books for Know Your Endo.
