Hello beautiful people! On today’s episode, we have Melissa, who shares her story of empowerment of living with Endometriosis. Melissa lived as an “endo suffer” for years. Melissa listened to the doctors, took the various medications and did the surgeries every 18 months - She accepted that this was her fate.
Until she didn’t.
Melissa slowly started to learn about a functional approach & began to take control of her endometriosis symptoms naturally. She now thrives in life, despite her endometriosis and is on a mission to help other “endo suffers” to take control of their lives.
