Links to physical or sexual trauma and endometriosis.
If you have read my book ‘Reclaiming Feminine Wisdom: An Empowering Journey with Endometriosis’ I refer to a study that links physical or sexual abuse and endometriosis. I make it clear that this will not be the reason for all women who have the condition but my journey has interesting links to the emotional connections with endo. I know many other women with endometriosis who can also make correlations so it’s always worth looking into emotional therapy such as EFT. It may factor in to the complex web of the condition. You already know I am a huge advocate of self-care and cyclical work; especially when endometriosis can be so debilitating and in itself can cause emotional distress. Mindfulness and meditation can be hugely helpful. I also want to stress that women do not ‘bring it on themselves’ by somehow being faulty. That’s not how it works. xx
