NAME: JESSICA ANDERSON
HEALTH ISSUE: Endometriosis
SYMPTOMS: While I’ve always experienced cramping just before—and during—my regular menstrual cycle, I started to experience extremely painful cramping and pelvic pain before my period that progressively got worse with time.
HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS: When the doctor performed a laparoscopy, I was diagnosed with an early state of endometriosis that was treated with medicine and alternative therapies, specifically herbal remedies like blue cohosh supplements and evening primrose oil.
THE RESULTS: With treatment and a slight change in my diet, I’ve been able to manage the occasional discomfort by reducing inflammation naturally.
