All eyes on Corona.

Covid-19 puts a shadow on endo awareness month What was planned to become a month full of events, press, news, information and people gatherings on endometriosis turned into a month, in which the whole world is focussed on the horrible Covid-19 or Coronavirus. No more endo events, marches, high teas or book readings can take…

3 weeks into the endo-diet

And it’s been a rollercoaster… I started off really fantastic and I was very strict the first week. I made some exceptions in week 2 and before I knew it, I was making an exception on something every day in week 3… đŸ™ˆ I still avoid gluten, coffee and most dairy, but I had a…

Happy endometriosis awareness month : make March yellow!

Ladies, this is our time: March is endometriosis awareness month and it is our moment to talk, write, blog, post about endo. I have the feeling that still today, despite of all the publicity it gets, still half of all the people I talk to (especially men!) have never heard of it. With 1 women…

My first week of the anti-inflammatory endo diet

One experimental week it was… I ate plenty of new foods, went to new stores and discovered an online offering I never knew that existed. Even if I find it hard, not being able to eat everything, I had imagined it to be more difficult than it actually is. I admit, I mostly ate at…

Day 5…

Only a brief post today, to give an update on my experience with the endo diet. I had an interesting encounter yesterday with another endometriosis patient who told me, I don’t have to be 100% strict about the endo diet… if I am doing 80%, this is already fantastic and a tremendous change with what…

Day 3 of the endo diet

3 days since my last gluten, lactose, sugar, alcohol, red meat and soja… 3 days since I decided to give the so called endometriosis-diet a try. After 2 surgeries in 12 months, I am open to try about anything to try and stop this crazy thing from growing on my organs. So far so good,…

Endo strikes back (so soon!)

Hey there readers, here’s a post… from my hospital bed… I just woke up after my second endo surgery (in 12 months). I never thought it would come back so fast, but it did… So here’s the story: I actually fel quite well after my first laparoscopic surgery, except for my S2, S3 nerves being…

Endometriosis awareness month

Hey dear readers, I wish all of you a very happy and above all, healthy Newyear! We just got back a fantastic holiday and I was supposed to come back full force… until my bowel decided to block traffic… seems like I had too much Christmas overload food & Drinks after all, so he decided…

Alternative medicine to cure endometriosis and/or get pregnant?

I have always been a firm believer of traditional medicine. Coming from a family with lots of doctors and with a theoretical background myself, I was never really open to alternative forms of medicine. But with classical medicine failing when it comes to curing endometriosis and in my quest to become pregnant, I admit that…

Endo-what?

‘Endometriosis.’ Usually, I have to repeat it twice, because most people have never heard about this disease. Strange, if you consider 1 out of 10 women suffer from it. (which is approximately 176 million women in the world) We have the same number of patients who suffer from asthma or diabetes. Let me start by giving a…
