Endometriosis Sucks So I Rise


{Image (c)2018 Sallie Sarrel}

Can you imagine the shame of needing help with just getting out of bed "Your Time of the Month" and being told for years that you are crazy, lazy or way too soft for your periods or even that you are making it all up?

My featured Guru Goddess this week to decipher all this is the Voice that Walks the Walk herself, Dr. Sallie Sarrel, a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Athletic Trainer and private practice owner in New York and New Jersey who has been treating women with the disease but has also been suffering from the disease for two decades.

In this Goddess Chat, Dr. Sallie Sarrel and I discuss the current state of Lifestyle and Care plan in the world of Endometriosis and why she felt the need to take on the role of Medicine Woman to proclaim WOMEN WITH PAINFUL PERIODS MATTER.

  • Dr. Sallie Sarrel is explaining how our reliance on Hysterectomy as a cure without a complete excision for this disease's care is unacceptable. Think about it, how can we be up to date when the name HYSTERECTOMY came from men calling the first mental health disorder,  "a disease of women" named "hysteria". You know those women of a certain time of the month who bleed with a mood or the ones just trying to figure out how to stop trying for and losing babies and becoming a Matriarch.  

The Real Pain 

So is it surprising to see that far too many women ( can you guess how many?) are living with the disease called Endometriosis but living with it waiting a decade for a diagnosis while sometimes being called hysterical or needing attention along the way? 

  • Dr. Sallie Is Setting the ACOG Straight

As she writes in her popular blog Sallie Speaks  "It’s not pretty or sexy or fun to talk about cramps, painful sex or bloating" nor is it easy fighting a system that you know is behind the times and still relying on ablation when they need to make sure they search the body and excise all the places more tissue can harvest more growth from. This is why Sallie is a #MedicineWomanRising as she calls out the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to save your Uterus every day! 

  • Some Main takeaways...

~176 Million Women suffer!

~You should seek a pelvic health Physio as soon as you get a diagnosis but even before why you are seeking an answer for the pain

~What to do if you have a teen complaining about pelvic pain BEFORE you slap a pill on it and try to move on.

~Where you can go to receive help from her if you are in the Tristate NYC area and what to be firm about when trying to find quality help and answers on your own.

I celebrate how Dr. Sallie is walking her talk and flipping her pain by making it a global speaking passion.  I highly recommend you see the documentary she is featured in from 2015 named EndoWhat
