My name is Carolyn Levett and I am the author of the website here at Endo-Resolved. I used to sufferer from endometriosis and I had a very severe case as diagnosed by a laparoscopy.
I was offered drug treatment to try and calm the disease, but after reading of the side effects from this drug I decided to follow my own path to healing. In time I was able to heal from this dreadful disease by using various natural treatments, homeopathy, diet and lots of self care.
After recovering from endometriosis - proven via a second laparoscopy that showed I had no active endometriosis - I went back to living my life and had a lot of catching up to do. However, a few years later while trawling the internet I started to read many harrowing stories of women and girls who were suffering really bad with endometriosis and were not getting any significant or permanent improvements with surgery or drug treatment.
It was these stories that led me to get my own story out to other women and to provide this support and advice resource at the website, that not only provides mainstream treatment advice, but also gives advice about natural treatments, complementary therapies and self help measures that can be used to help manage this disease and reduce symptoms.
To enable me to provide informed and valid advice about this disease and its ramifications I researched the topic of endometriosis thoroughly, as well as being based on my own personal experience.
With a passionate interest in natural therapies to support healing I invested in my own health education and undertook courses in Herbal Medicine and a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy. Later I did a part-time course in Aromatherapy. This knowledge has helped me provide informed advice here at the website and to understand the complexities about the body and its healing mechanisms.
I trust and hope that you will gain the confidence in your own ability to heal (at least reduce your symptoms) from endometriosis after reading the pages here.

I have also written the book 'Recipes & Diet Advice for Endometriosis' which can be found here at the website, which is based partly on the success I achieved for my health using a specific diet.
