Learn all the secrets to managing your endometriosis in the best possible way with my new Endometriosis Handbook.
As someone who suffered from debilitating period pain ever since I was 12 years-old, I know first-hand the frustration when it comes to seeking help and getting no where.
“Here’s the pill”
Try another pill
Pain killers not working?
“Try this stronger drug”
Yet NO ONE was asking about endometriosis.
It wasn’t until around 18-years-old that I learnt about endometriosis and started googling. Everything was matching up. I had all the symptoms.
So off I went to the gyno to demand surgery. After some resistance, I finally went in for a laparoscopy.
But, it was another brick wall. “Everything’s normal. no endo”.
Whilst this might have seemed like good news at the time, this was in fact the opposite.
I went on for years and years wondering why the hell I get such bad pain. Even after two trips to the hospital.
But it wasn’t until December 2019, I finally met my excision specialist who could indeed see I had endometriosis, just by a transvaginal ultrasound. This was later confirmed and removed via laparoscopy in January 2020.
As a Naturopath who was already helping many other women manage their endo better, this only concreted even more that I was meant to dive even deeper into this condition.
So with my learnings over the years, including learning from the best in endometriosis research, my own clinical research, and of course using myself as the best guinea pig, I’ve put together the ultimate guide to supporting your endometriosis naturally.
In the beginning I only gave this book to my paying clients (and you’ll still get this book free if you become a new client of mine).
But with the growing interest I’ve received in the past few months, from women all over the world, I decided it was time to bring this resource to a wider audience so that all women with endometriosis can start to learn how to heal themselves.

What are the key symptoms of endometriosis?
There are some key tell-tale signs and symptoms to look for with endo, but bare in mind not everyone is the same. One woman may have grade 1 endometriosis and suffer the worst pain, while a woman with grade 4 endo may not have any pain at all, but for her it could be infertility or bloating.
But here are the most common symptoms
- Severe period pain
- Pain with ovulation – “ice-pick” pain
- Lower pelvic bloating
- Lower back pain
- Pain with sex
- Heavy bleeding with clots
- Nausea with periods
- Fatigue due to blood loss and pain
Other often associated symptoms may include
- Digestive disturbances including constipation and diarrhoea
- Iron deficiency
- Constant pelvic pain
- SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth)
- Sometimes exercise-induced period pain
- Sometimes orgasm-induced period pain
