Hi, my name is Carolyn Levett, I am an Integrative Health Coach, author and a keen endometriosis advocate.
Some people say one of the most important pages on a website is the ‘About’ page, because readers want (and need) to be able to trust what they are reading and the advice being offered.
To start ...... about me
I have been 'in the trenches' with this disease, so I understand the impact it has on every aspect of life - but I have come out the other side. I used to sufferer from endo and I had a very severe case as diagnosed by a laparoscopy, but I have been free of endometriosis for many years.
My aim here is to offer hope and encouragements to others so that they too can start to reduce their symptoms of endometriosis and begin to regain their health.
I have been providing advice and support to other women through the website for a number of years, and the positive feedback I have received has given encouragement and hope to many women. You can read the feedback from other endometriosis sufferers HERE
"My motivation is to help other women with endometriosis to heal their bodies so they may overcome this awful disease without having to rely on toxic drugs and surgeries which can cause further damage."
My Journey .....
After my diagnostic laparoscopy where it was found I had severe endometriosis, I was offered drug treatment to try and calm the disease, but after reading of the side effects from drug treatment I decided to follow my own path to healing.
My journey towards recovering from endometriosis focused on going the natural route. In time I achieved my goal and I was able to heal from this dreadful disease using natural therapies, nutrition and lots of self-care. It wasn't easy and there were pitfalls along the way and many dark moments. It takes commitment, patience and time to heal ...... But it really is worth the long-term benefits.
After recovering from endometriosis I wanted to support and offer encouragement to other women and help them manage their disease more naturally. I have read many harrowing stories of women and girls who are suffering everyday and not obtaining any significant or permanent improvements with surgery or drug treatment. It is these stories that have led me to get my own story out to help motivate other women,
The aim of this website is to provide an antidote to all the negative stories and provide hope and motivation.
About the advice here ......
As well as providing mainstream endometriosis advice, the emphasis here is about natural treatments, complementary therapies, nutrition and many self-help measures that can be used to help manage this disease and reduce your symptoms.
I am striving here to provide a more positive and hopeful theme and message here at the website. There are far too many negative stories or depressing anecdotal stories relating to this disease. I feel many readers want, and need encouragement and to read more positive stories.
