Product Description
A comprehensive diet resource for women with Endometriosis - all researched and compiled to provide a safe and healing diet to help alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis.

The book includes over 250 recipes plus recommendations of what to leave out of your diet and why; tips about estrogen and your diet, and how to keep it in balance; details of substitute ingredients for dairy products and baking; snippets of nutritional advice woven among the recipes; a range of recipes from simple and easy to cook through to more exotic ideas, including some recipes for parties and catering.

The purpose of the endometriosis diet is to relieve or even prevent some of the disabling symptoms that occur with menstruation, as well as the general pain of endometriosis.The diet also aims to decrease estrogen levels, stabilize hormones, increase energy levels, reduce inflammation and alleviate painful cramps.

A very good resource to help women follow the diet for endometriosis. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars excellent suggestions, but where are the references??
This book is full of very sound nutritional advice, and after doing my own research I have proven to myself that the information correct. It was difficult to take this book seriously however since there were absolutely NO references. Since she is not a nutritionalist or a scientist, where did she getting the information from? It would have saved me a lot of time if she had cited her sources to back up her claims.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible book to deal with endo symptoms
This book has all I was looking for (and more) and is really helping me follow the diet for endometriosis.I wanted healthy tasty recipes and this book has it covered with everything from drinks, main meals, desserts, baking and even some catering size recipes.The introduction was worth it alone for its explanation of what you can and cannot eat with explanations of why.

I have only been following this diet for little over 5 weeks and it is incredible.My pain has been reduced so much that I no longer need to take the pain medications.I feel much brighter, I have more energy and I can finally start to get back to something of a normal life, after suffering for years from this nightmare and having had 4 laparoscopies.The endo would improve after each surgery but it always came back.I could not see the point in going for further surgery in the future.I had to find another way, and amazingly something as basic as diet seems to be doing the trick.I really am very positive about the future now.

I thought that going wheat free would be difficult but this book has lots of recipes for alternatives and I can still eat some of my favourite meals like pasta dishes and there are recipes for baked items like muffins, cakes and breads.The other thing that really interested me was the author's guidance and advice about soy products like soy meat substitutes and soy milks.They are not good for you ladies, and I have read this somewhere else, but for women with endo then soy products need to be avoided.

So if you want a good book to help you control endometriosis then I can really recommend this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars All my pain has gone!
I had a laparoscopy about 8 years ago and the doctor told me that it was the worse case he had ever seen in someone of my age and that I would never be able to conceive naturally. I have been on various medications over the years and still in constant pain, three times I was rushed into hospital where I had to stay in for a few days while they pumped painkillers into me.

Anyway after 8 years I had had enough and after seeing yet another specialist who gave me lots of options, none of them good, I decided I wanted to at least try another way.In desperation I looked again on the net and found out about the endo diet and came across this recipe book.

I have been on this diet for nearly 4 months now and for the last 2 months I have had NO pain, I even had a period and didn't even get a single cramp. I was amazed, stunned in fact.I have NO pain, and am taking NO medication... I didn't think I would ever be able to say that! I am so angry that none of the doctors ever mentioned changing my diet may help. Now I just want to shout it from the rooftops "don't take the pills, try the diet instead". This could have saved me so much pain and heartache if I had known about it years ago.

The advice and information, as well as the tasty recipes in this book and has completely change my life.Please try the diet if you are suffering from the dreadful pain of endometriosis.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful.
So much detail and information. Plenty of testimonials from women who have been in the trenches.A Must have for women suffering with endometriosis

5-0 out of 5 stars A real life saver
I bought this book despite the couple of negative comments and I am very glad that I did.The book has many delicious recipes and is clear to explain the reasons why you need to leave out particular foods. I have found that by returning to certain foods my symptoms will come back.But by staying on the diet I have found that I no longer need to use the pain meds - I used to be on the maximum dose.I did not think the diet would make so much difference, but it has.As well as reducing my symptoms I now have much more energy and my skin looks and feels great.This book even includes some delicious sweet recipes and having a sweet tooth, then this is great for me. Having this handybook, for which I am so grateful to have found and bought, has helped me hugely and I really do recommend this book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful book!
I highly recommend this book for women suffering from endo. I feel much better taking the supplements and eliminating the food that I can't eat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Could have saved a LOT of $, pain and frustration if I knew about this book!
I want to slap every medical practitioner who made me fill out a million forms with my medical history and symptoms and who did NOTHING to help me. CLEARLY it was all related and THIS book presented it in such a way I'm in total shock years of doctors never connected the obvious dots! $20 and 5 days spent on this book has done more for me than ten years of trips to general practitioners, gynecologists, orthopedic doctors, physical therapists, endocrinologists, gastroenterologists...I could go on...

I have recently invested THOUSANDS in alternative/holistic medicine and testing, in utter refusal that someone with my healthy lifestyle, impeccable nutrition and general good attitude could have SO many health problems. Then I bought this book and found out what I spent thousands discovering.

ANY woman who thinks she might have endo or even any woman who is preparing for pregnancy or just wants to know how to best care for her health as a female, should read this book. I'm having my 14 year old daughter read it next so she comprehends the importance of nutrition to the female body.

5-0 out of 5 stars AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH Relief
While the book is a bit dense, the information is quality!I have suffered from endometriosis since age 15.After many years of infertility,serious month-long pain, several surgeries, I finally decided to try the diet.I had nixed the idea, feelign endo had robbed me of enough pleasure I was not about to give up food I loved (BREAD!)Alas, my last surgery showed not good things, and I ordered Dian's book.I have been on the diet for almost 2 months, and I have never felt better.

2-0 out of 5 stars For true nutrition fanatics
This book was not very helpful for me at all. I am glad to have it among my endometriosis arsenal, but the intense recommendations for all the nutritional changes you need to follow were just too much for me. I have taken several supplements and changed my diet a little, but had already done that prior to reading this book. There was nothing in here that really helped me. If you are someone who is willing to put in a LOT of time and effort and changes with your food, then this is an excellent book for you. Otherwise, unless you are just curious, I would suggest skipping it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Endometriosis: A Key to Healing Through Nutrition
I'm very happy with this purchase.There are a lot of chapters to read, so I'm reading a chapter every now and then.What I like the best are the specific dietary changes that are listed, how each vitamin/mineral, etc can affect your health and which foods you should eat.I like the honesty and research from the authors and testimonies from many participants who have successfully eliminated many of their symptoms. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource
I found this book to be quite helpful. Especially if you have been battling endometriosis for a long period of time. This book will help you with questions that don't seem to be answered by your doctors.

5-0 out of 5 stars Regarding Naturopathy's Science-Ejected Vitalism Premise, 2008:
The author clearly illustrates the 'vitalistic belief premise' of various alternative medical systems, including naturopathy, and vitalism's many synonyms:

"reiki is really two Japanese words - rei and ki [...] ki means vital or life force. This 'life force' energy has many other names within different cultures throughout the world e.g. 'chi' in Chinese, 'prana' in Sanscrit, and 'bioplasmic energy' by Russian scientists. All living things on earth have a 'vital force', an unseen energy [...] we all have this vital energy [p.127...] part of the theory of homeopathy, the body is said to be integrated by a 'vital force', which maintains it in a state of homeostasis. If this force is put under strain, illness can result [p.136...] naturopathy. Also known as 'natural medicine' [...] modern naturopaths [...] maintain that many factors such as unhealthy diet, lack of sleep, exercise, or fresh air, any emotional or physical stress, pollution, in the environment, even negative attitudes, allow wast products and toxins to build up in the body and upset self-regulation. This in turn can overload the immune system and weaken the vital force, the body's innate ability to maintain good health [p.141]."

Scientifically speaking, there is no such thing as a vital principle; just as naturopathy's 'autotoxicity premise' lacks scientific credibility.


5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent supportive and inspirational book
I have read most books that deal with natural treatments for endometriosis and this is by far the best one I have read.This book has been written in such a way that the author gives you a full understanding of how and why natural treatments will work. She explains that a lot of the problems associated with endometriosis stems from a stressed immune system and give loads of advice and tips of how to help boost your immune system. I have tried many of the self help tips and advice and I have definitely felt a great improvement in my health, a big reduction in my pain symptoms and improvments in my digestive problems.

This book has been a huge inspiration to me and has given me more confidence to continue to improve my own health because it includes stories of other women who have been able to rid themselves of this dreadful disease, as well as the authors own story of how she healed from endometriosis. An excellent book all round and I am very, very glad I found it and I would recommend it to any woman who has endometriosis.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and logical advice andvery supportive
This book has really given me inspiration.There is so much in here that I have not read before including a fascinating section on the immune system. The book is full of anecdotal stories about other women who have recovered from endo, or who have had successful pregnancies by using natural therapies.

There is lots of information about natural therapies and suggestions of what you can do to help yourself with the symptoms, the emotional side, and just coping with life in general.

I really recommend this book most highly to other women who need a huge boost to help them take on this disease with the aim of reducing the symptoms and starting to heal both physically and emotionally.Brilliant work.

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE for ALL Endometriosis Sufferers
This book is the Holy Grail for endometriosis sufferers. I have read many books on this disease, and this one is by far my favorite. I have referred to it so many times, the pages are actually worn from use. It details EVERYTHING you need to know. The fact that the author is the one who really pushed for the initial research for a cure/treatments for endometriosis should tell you that the book is good. I consider it VERY important to have. You will be surprised by all the many aspects that this disease touches. I agree with Mary Lou in that endometriosis should be classified as an autoimmune disease, and do feel that, in time, it will indeed be. I promise you, if you purchase this book, you will NOT be dissapointed. I would even recommend that the important people in your life read it as well, as they will have an eye-opening experience into why/how you suffer and feel. Please purchase this book...it is TRULY essential.

4-0 out of 5 stars endo sufferer
i have been living with endo since i was 11. i have suffered through pain for a long time-i am now 27. i have seen countless drs and finally found one in nyc who not only believes me but supports me.this book describes everything i have been dealing with and i recommend it. the only complaint is that sometimes the text is chopped off. if you have endo get this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource book for endometriosis questions
I needed to know more about this disease and found this book the perfect resource. It is difficult to know just what people with this disease have to put up with but it doesn't pay to keep your head in the sand and this book will educate you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good follow-up to the Endometriosis Sourcebook
This book is a follow-up to the Endometriosis Sourcebook, and makes more sense if you've read that one first.The first book has more details about causes and treatments.This book focuses on adding information learned in the ten years after the first one was written.I recommend both.If you can only afford one, buy the Sourcebook - even if you think you have found all there is to learn about this disease.I found the Sourcebook to be the most comprehensive of anything I could get my hands on.As a follow-up, this is really good reading, and I find myself looking forward to the next book to see what researchers can do to finally find a cure.

I would also like to add to a previous reviewer's comments ("Extremely Helpful Endo Reference Guide") and say that a total hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries is NOT necessarily a cure, either - despite the fact many women desperately seeking relief undergo this drastic measure.Women who have their ovaries removed go through tremendous suffering, only to find out their endo is still there, and they are still in pain.

After a laparotomy with one ovary removed, I woke to find myself suffering even more than before the surgery.Finally, years later, I was able to get a copy of the surgery report and found out that despite what I was told, the surgeon did NOT remove ALL the endo - only the active endo.Well, needless to say, I am about to go through yet another surgery with yet another doctor to remove the rest of the endo that is still causing me trouble.The best treatment is TOTAL removal of ALL endo.Read your surgery report.It is likely different and more detailed than what you've been told.

2-0 out of 5 stars *Echos the disappointing sentiments*
I was excited to find a big thick book dedicated to endo.It seemed as if it quite possibly had to have everything that I needed to know about this disease.Wrong.

As noted by a previous reviewer...the book constantly refers back to another book, which after reading this book I can't even say I am tempted to read.Most of the book was dedicated to 'natural' therapies, the dangers of chemicals in our enviorment, and cancer.

I truly feel that there are very few women with endo who are going to benefit from this book.It is a giant list of DON'T's with very few do's.Any worthwhile information it actually provides has probably already been presented by a woman's doctor and/or any woman with this disease probably already knows about through previous research.

If you have endo, I wouldn't recommend this being your first book you pick up about it. ... Read more

Good book on endometriosis, however some of the information is incorrect.But an overall good look at the disease and great to pass on to family and friends who are trying to understand the disease in simple easy to understand language

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Info
Endo is a very confusing disease. This really helped me understand what my body was doing, and how to cope with it. I would reccomend this book to anyone that has Endometriosis. Get a highlighter & flip thru it. You will come back to those highlighted spots.

5-0 out of 5 stars You're no "dummy" if you buy this book
When I was diagnosed with Endometriosis I was scared, alone and very confused.This book put the disease in my terms instead a bunch of medical jargon and has helped me understand the condition.I still reference it and it's been over a year since the diagnosis.A great buy and worth every penny.

Product Description
The Endometriosis Sourcebook is the definitive resource for the millions of sufferers urgently seeking up-to-date, authoritative information.It covers everything women need to know, including the latest research, treatments, nutrition and advice.Amazon.com Review
The Endometriosis Sourcebook is "the definitive guideto current treatment options, the latest research, common myths aboutthe disease, and coping strategies" compiled by the EndometriosisAssociation and its president, Mary Lou Ballweg. Ballweg lived withthe disease for years, struggled through treatments and surgeries, waslucky enough to give birth to a "miracle baby," was bedridden formonths at a time, and underwent a hysterectomy after all othertreatment options were exhausted. She's therefore quite sympathetictoward fellow endo patients.

This all-inclusive book collectscomparisons of different laser treatments; discusses the little-knownconnections between endo and autoimmune and thyroid problems, as well asdiseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome; covers new researchdirections; examines the effectiveness of Chinese medicine; sharesletters from hundreds of women detailing their experiences; and muchmore. Perhaps most importantly, Ballweg strives to communicate howserious a disease endometriosis can be:

If there weremillions of [men] out there, young men whose dreams were in danger ofbeing destroyed by a disease, whose ability to function sexually wasat risk, whose fertility was at risk, whose ability to build asatisfying work life and carry out normal activities of living was atrisk, and who even would face the threat of castration, no one woulddare say it was unimportant.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Informative for every sufferer
I purchased this book along with Mary Lou Ballweg's main book. I consider it a very good companion book to that one. It has a lot of information about how endometriosis can affect your body in other ways outside of reproductive/pain. Mary Lou believes strongly that endometriosis is an actual autoimmune disease and I have to agree with her. I feel that one day, as she does, it WILL indeed be classified as such. There is a lot of data, which is inside this book, about how women with endometriosis are at higher risks for certain types of cancers and serious health problems. That alone is worth purchasing the book. I would recommend they both be bought together. You will not be disappointed and will find yourself flipping back into it again and again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Book looks good
I purchased the book as it appears to cover a lot of detail of endometriosis, something my daughter is dealing with right now.I appreciate the work that went into this difficult topic.

2-0 out of 5 stars Depressing.
This is one of the most depressing books about Endometriosis I have ever read. It does contain a lot of information on potential treatments for the disease, but the running theme in the book is that nobody understands endo, little works to cure endo, and there is a wonderful chance that it will come back.

Product Description

A complete guide to the side–effects and treatments – both conventional and alternative – for endometriosis, from a respected name in the field who also suffers from endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a debilitating reproductive and immunological disease that affects 7–10 million American women each year. The disease occurs when the same kind of tissue that lines the walls of the uterus grows outside the uterus in the pelvic cavity or some other area of the body, usually significantly affecting the woman's fertility and often causing pelvic pain. And as with any condition that affects fertility, the results are often emotional and psychological as well as physical.

As someone who suffers from endometriosis, and who has connections to a wide network of healthcare professionals, Morris is the perfect person to guide sufferers through diagnosis, treatment and living well with the condition. Like the previous titles in our successful Living Well series, this book will offer a holistic approach to living with the disease. The author will offer strategies for coping with the psychological aspects of endometriosis, including how best to tell others about the condition; treatment options including alternative and complementary treatment plans; dealing with infertility; and weighing the hysterectomy option. The author will draw on her relationship with fellow sufferers as well as medical professionals to help readers, making this the most comprehensive guide to endometriosis available.

Kerry–Ann Morris was diagnosed with endometriosis in 1999. Since then she has become one of the most active members of the endometriosis community, and has started an outreach website for the disease. She has relationships with many fellow sufferers and experts in the medical community, making her the perfect author for a book on holistic treatment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough Beyond Expectations
Having been diagnosed with Endo in 2008 (but having symptoms for the majority of my life), I was shocked to realize how much of the other issues I've been experiencing are closely linked to endo: not sleeping, chronic fatigue, etc. I had no idea the impact of this disease on every part of my body until reading this book. I know longer feel crazy for being so sick. Endo is a very serious disease. Also, I found it amazing how much information was packed inside. The author covered all types of treatments from surgery, drugs, vitamins, minerals. She really simplified it by putting together one amazing resource. To top it all off, intertwined throughout are amazing blurbs from actual women dealing with endo. I feel empowered now to stop being controled by this disease and reach out to continue learning and be informed and involved with my treatment. This is a must have and long overdue resource for anyone suffering from this horrible disease.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hopeful and Informative
Having just been diagnosed with Endometriosis, I can say firsthand that this book is both hopeful and informative. Including information about treatment options, how to talk to your male partner and family members about living with endometriosis, facts/statistics, and much more; this book is extremely helpful if you are new to living with endo or have a bit of experience with it. Many of the pages include real personal stories about other women with endo and they provide hope for those of us just diagnosed.
I have just finished skimming through the book for the information I was looking for and I am planning to go back to the "dog-eared" pages to reread for more info.
I don't think I could have found a more consise and helpful book that covers such an array of topics related to endo.
I highly reccommend this book to family members and those diagnosed with endo as well as professionals who might seek to become empathetic with those of us who have endo.

This book had some informative things in it, for sure. But it was mostly essential oils which arent easy to mix and use as she says. More complicated regimens that a lot of people dont have time for. I have researched endo and was looking for more info on diet, which really can improve symptoms.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very informative read. Easy to follow.
This is one of the first few books I've bought on the subject of Endo.. I found it rather informative and easy to follow. It offered great suggestions for relief of pain and really explained why and what to get things to work for different people. Overall, worth the money for the book.

3-0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed

This book has a strong slant toward Aromatherapy and essentail oils which is understandable considering the background of the authors.

I was expecting more in-depth advice about other therapies that would help endometriosis, but there is some good advice here.

5-0 out of 5 stars great book on endo!!!
I love this book!I have almost every endo book written in the past few years and this is one of my favorites.It is full of a lot of great info and ideas of natural treatments to try.The only complaint is that info on one subject can be found in a lot of different places in the book.Overall I highly recommend this book for those suffering with endo.I talked to a woman at an essential oil store who knew the writer and said she is well respected and knowledgable in the field of essential oils.I highly recommend this easy to read and very informative book.

5-0 out of 5 stars The only good information a doctor has ever provided about this desease.
If you have endometriosis you will save time money and tears by reading this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Answers at Last!
My first review of anything I've ever purchased.If you or someone you love has Endometriosis, this is a MUST read.Thoughtful, science based answers at last!!

5-0 out of 5 stars If you want a real guide to Endo...
...then this is the book for you.

Dr. David Redwine, one of the world's leading authorities on the diagnosis and groundbreaking excisional treatment of the disease, has released an honest, unflinching look at the questions and concerns regarding Endometriosis.

The author takes on the myths and fallacies that continue to surround the illness, and debunks the inaccuracies that have persisted for decades (and continue to be promoted by many in the lay and professional communities today).Thought provoking, intelligent and comprehensive, this book has the bravery to question the flawed status quo that continues to shroud Endometriosis and offers frank, accurate answers - based on a lifetime of expert treatment and research - in response.

So-called "conventional wisdom" about Endometriosis has largely failed the global patient population for generations.Until we question the roots of this failure and reject the misinformation that is so obviously wrong yet continues to be comfortably repeated, Endometriosis will continue to be misdiagnosed, ineffectively treated, misunderstood, and ill recognized for the insidious disease that it actually is.What is wrong with the theories of origin, upon which most treatment options have been formed?Is over-dependence on drug companies shaping the future of available therapies for Endometriosis?Can any ob/gyn generalist superficially and incompletely remove the disease with any hopes of success at relief to the patient?Why aren't more practitioners interested in Endometriosis?Are hysterectomies, menopause or pregnancies the cures?If you want answers to these controversial questions as well as an authoritative guide to understanding the disease as a whole, then you must read this book.

"100 Q & As" simply must get into the hands of all patients, caregivers and practitioners alike if we are ever to make true progress into the understanding and gold standard treatment of Endometriosis.

Of note: post-release editing corrections have been made by the Author as follows - Q14, page 13, bottom paragraph, first sentence. Should read, "...around the time of onset of menstruation, tracts of substrate tissue begin to change into Endometriosis..." Q87, page 103, second line from bottom.Should read, "...authors concluded that Endometriosis caused infertility and then..."

5-0 out of 5 stars Fibroid Treatment Book
If you are diagnosed early, this is a great alternative to surgery.I have given it to a few friends.I had to have surgery anyway.

4-0 out of 5 stars Natural Treatment of Fibroids and Endometriosis
I find the book to be very informative.It has plain and simple as well as easy to follow tips.Also, it helps you understand what is happening and why.

5-0 out of 5 stars I found the book Informative and Helpful.
The dietary changes recommended, while not a cure, did help alleviate a good bit of my pain. I found the explanation of the role of essential fatty acids fascinating. It doesn't work overnight, but implementing them for a good month helped me with cramping and bloating that I continued to have after my surgery.

1-0 out of 5 stars Would you blame a cancer patient for her cancer?
Then let's not pretend that diet has anything to do with the severe pain associated with endometriosis.

I followed the recommendations in this book for a 1-month trial (note: I'm already very physically active, so I only followed the dietary recommendations).Result?No effect whatsoever on my longstanding severe endometriosis.The more I read, themore I'm convinced that Dr. Redwine in Oregon has the real answer -- meticulous surgery as the only real cure for endo.Hormonal treatments are only temporary, and many women cannot bear the adverse effects associated with them, including depression, mood swings, decreased intelligence, etc.Pain medication works, but who wants to be drugged for the rest of one's life?Medicinal cannabis helps the most of any nonsurgical treatment I've had.Each of my 4 surgeries has reduced the pain -- I hope that that my next surgery, which will focus on the bowel, bladder, and diaphragm implants, will be my last.

Oh, I've gotten away from the point of this review.Anyway, I checked this book out of the library to see if it said anything worthwhile, but it didn't.It's easy to prescribe "good nutrition" for a chronic condition; who among us couldn't stand to eat a little better?But this sort of approach is really a form of blaming the victim -- if you women would only eat properly, you wouldn't have this terrible condition.Nonsense!Endometriosis is just like cancer, except it doesn't invade the bone or lymph system (that we know of) and doesn't lead as quickly to death (although some women suffering the intense pain of endometriosis sometimes briefly think that death would be preferable).Worst of all, endometriosis can really ruin a relationship between a husband and wife (because sex usually makes the symptoms far worse), especially if the wife's physicians aren't sufficiently educated and think the problem is "all in her head." ...

Super fast shipping and arrived for a used book looking brand new!Thank you

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Information
This book is written in a friendly and easy to read manner.It has a lot of information to absorb, but is what every woman with Endo should know.If you want to learn more and want to follow the guidelines provided then I strongly recommend this book.In only three months my life has changed.I understand my body like never before and am excited that following the suggestions in this book will lead me to my dream - pregnancy.After having purchased numerous books on Endo, it was nice to have one that finally answered my questions and was enjoyable.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource
After three years of infertility due to endometriosis, we had given up hope.After eight months on this diet we were expecting our first child with no medical intervention.Even if you aren't trying to conceive, this diet DOES help you feel a lot better.

4-0 out of 5 stars Explanations Refreshing
I've been reading this book since before I had surgery last week and am going to give the diet a try.The explanations of unbalanced hormones and lack of certain vitamins/minerals causing my symptoms and horrific PMS make alot of sense.I dropped out of biology in college because it seemed to be over my head, but this book explained body chemistry and cell production in a way that I can relate.Through the nutritional advice in this book, I am hoping to get pregnant and not have to have surgery again.

3-0 out of 5 stars What can I say?
I'm at something of a loss as to what to say about this book.I couldn't decide if I should give it five stars or one, so I cut the difference and gave it three.This book is bizarre. If you can wade through the sections of repetitive, juvenile, slang-ridden, poorly written diatribe there is a lot of very helpful medical information which every endometriosis sufferer should know.I learned so many useful and helpful things about reproductive endocrinology, the immune system, the digestive system, andendometriosis itself. Yet the authors could easily have gotten the same amount of information into the book using half the words.Some parts of this book are clearly and concisely written and very helpful, while other sections of the book read as if the authors wanted to make the details understandable to a five-year old.I was definitely annoyed and somewhat insulted, as I think the authors ought to assume that the people reading it are going to be adults with functioning brains.However, I cannot help but recommend this book.The information in there is good, if you can put up with the useless junk and find information in the midst of verbosity. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wake Up and smell the Tofu.
This book was a true eye-opener for me! I recommend this book to everyone I know who has Endo. I have used it's wisdom enthusiastically, and with fabulous results.

As an effect of this book, I turned to yoga. I changed my diet. I did alot of things differently. And let me tell you ladies, if you experience pain are you're sick of taking those pills, then get this book and read it every night. Make it your tummy bible!
I went from periods that were horrible: endless aching and pain, cold sweats, dizziness, diarrhea, shakes, even vomiting! (and 4+ pain killers, hot water bottles, and teas) to periods that were virtually PAINLESS.Lifestyle changes and diet, it really helped me out. Now I can work like everyone else and I don't need a single pain killer. Not one. Today I had my period and went to play raquetball. WOW!

What is most heartening about this book is just how it makes you fell informed about yourself. We all grow up feeling kind of helpless about the mysterious female pain of menstruation, waving helplessly at our family or partners over the years. it doesn't need to be like that!
It takes time too: my changes didn't occur overnight, but within half a year my periods were bearable enough I made it through without pills. A year later the pain was all gone. So there ya have it!

Here's a tip: NO BEEF! Well, try to get the red meats out of your diet. Especially not within ten days of your period. You'll see....;)

5-0 out of 5 stars Great information!
I am 26 and was recently diagnosed with fibroids.This book offered helpful information that calmed my initial fears.The dietary guidance should be considered by all women.I especially enjoyed the recipes and exercise information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank You Susan Lark
I am a 35-year-old African American female and have suffered from fibroids for over 7 years. Almost everyone in my family does to some degree. Various quacks have prescribed painkiller after painkiller.Then finally I had a surgery and conceived, but lost our child at 18 weeks.A year later, a fibroid was back with an ovarian cyst.I did not want more surgery, so during the holiday I order this book and started the plan.During my recent ultrasound, examine less than 3 weeks later the small fibroid was gone and the cyst partial collapsed (part fluid it was solid) and shrunk. I feel great and whole for the first time in a long time.Thank you for having the courage to show us a different way.The book was balanced with options and I will recommend it to all I know.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of helpful suggestions
I have to admit, I've done a thorough skimming of the book rather than a complete read. But she knows her stuff and has some really helpful lists and suggestions. As a heavy bleeder and someone who was diagnosed with small fibroids (6-week uterus), I'm really anemic (10.2) and have started eating foods from the "good" lists (which, incidentally, coincide with the detoxification/cleansing diet my nutritionist gave me). There are quite a few de-stressing and exercise suggestions, and I just haven't been able to find that kind of advice anywhere else. If you can't do it all, there are lots of things to pick and choose from that are likely to help.

5-0 out of 5 stars Change your life
This book is a MUST have for any woman suffering from fibroids. After two surgeries i knew i had to take matters into my own hands. I read this book changed my diet, started used herbs, and exercise and my symptoms have disappeared. i tell anyone i know to tell anyone they know with fibroids to read this book. I agree with chigacojess that western medicine can do but so much. My doctor was insisiting that i have a hysterectomy. I'm 31 . NO WAY! Now he looks at me in amazement. I am no longer anemic, my fibroids have decreased in size and he can't explain it.Thanks Dr. susan Lark. She saved my uterus, and i am forever grateful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The painful mystery of endometriosis
Endometriosis is the type of gynaecological disease that many women will only hear of when they are diagnosed with it.Some women will experience relatively few symptoms, others will be extremely unwell much of the time.For some women, though, the disease can impact on fertility.

Ros Wood and Lorraine Henderson have written a great book (this is the second edition) which provides a wealth of information to both sufferers of the disease and their families and friends as well as to health carers.

Back in 1980, when I had my first definitive diagnosis of this disease, there was very little 'plain English' information available to sufferers.This book is amongst the best I have read on this topic.

Highly recommended to all who either suffer from endometriosis or know someone who does.It would also make a useful inclusion on the bookshelves of groups concerned with women's health.

2-0 out of 5 stars too basic, not enough info
Based on the high ratings, I ordered this book as my endo has been getting worse and I wanted to read about any new treatments.This book was a basic level primer in how to deal with any chronic illness--not at all what I was looking for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful
Living with this disease is painful.This book gave me more insight than I had before.Each chapter was helpful.

I've done a lot of research on Endo, and this book condensed it to make it easier for one to understand it easier.It helped mentally and physically.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not enough to "cope" if disease is severe and chronic
I was diagnosed with endometriosis over 10 years ago and have since had 7 major surgeries and countless minor ones.I picked this book up after major surgery #5, desperate for help. This book didn't cut it.Granted, by the time I read this book, my knowledge of endo (from medical and general literature) was better than most gyns (by their own admissions).I bought this book anyway, hoping the "coping" advice would be helpful. I ended up skimming it, finding little of value, and setting it on a bookshelf to gather dust.

Endometriosis left me permanently disabled and in chronic pain, despite "the best" care available at one of the top medical establishments in the world. With especially severe stage IV disease, that sometimes happens despite the type(s) of surgery and treatments tried. I eventually went beyond the endometriosis literature and found what I was looking for in general literature on chronic illness.If that's where you're at, I highly recommend "Celebrate Life: New Attitudes for Living with Chronic Illness," Hartwell's "Chronically Happy: Joyful Living in Spite of Chronic Illness," Wells, "A Delicate Balance: Living Successfully with Chronic Illness, and Cheri Register, "The Chronic Illness Experience: Embracing the Imperfect Life."

These books helped immensely.I learned to live with somewhat of a pardox: acceptance of my condition (as opposed to continuing to fight it) without ever giving up hope of a better future.And, I learned how to make the most out of my life and find value in what I could do, instead of focusing on what I couldn't do.These books helped me grieve my losses and move forward. If you're where I was, I hope this review helps you find these books sooner than I did!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Buy for your Dollar!
I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2001 & had my first surgery that year. Toward the latter part of 2002, I started to be in chronic pain for this disease. I'll make a long story short. (If you want to see the long story, go to my review about Jennifer Lewis' book that I think is medically inaccurate). This book is compelling, thorough and most of all, helpful. It was a book I *SHOULD* have had in 2001. Since dealing with my pain, this book has opened my eyes to therapies I can use, how I can deal with ALL the aspects of this disease, and how it affects my loved ones. This is a great book because it talks to you through a whole person concept--- not just dealing with the reproductive Endometriosis, but it deals with all of the areas surrounding it, too, like emotions, finances, and so on. It doesn't talk down to you, and won't make you feel like you're in a pity party, but gives you tools to try to cope and even recover. Check this book out. You'll be glad you did.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 15.At this age I did not even come close to understanding what this disease was, or how it was going to effect my future.After reading this book, not only did I understand the health aspect of this disease, but I also learned how to cope with the emotional part of it as well.I would recommend this book to anyone who truly wants to understand this disease. ...

Endometriosis can disrupt women's lives. It is responsible for chronic, sometimes crippling pain, hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, and in its most extreme cases, infertility.

There is hope! Thomas L. Lyons, M.D., whose philosophy is to "treat the patient, not the disease," has developed leading edge surgical techniques to address endometriosis.

Dr. Lyons demystifies this puzzling disease, covering issues from fertility to dietary concerns, alternative treatments to surgical options but the main focus is on the key issue of pain management for this potentially debilitating disease. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Informative for any endo sufferer
Dr. Lyons performed surgery at The Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta, GA: a clinic that is on the cutting edge of all the most recent research and technology. He actually invented a surgical technique that is named after him and performed by the surgeons at that clinic. This book is EXCELLENT in that it answers a bevy of questions you have in VERY simple and easy to understand language. I travelled from WV to Atlanta to have my surgery there based on the research/technique that Dr. Lyons did. My surgery was performed by Dr. Ken Sinervo using Dr. Lyons technique and I would HIGHLY recommend that clinic. If you are a sufferer of endometriosis, you NEED this book in your library. It helps to answer most of your questions in terms that are easy to understand and not full of medical jargon that you would have to look up. I recommend buying this book along with Mary Lou Ballweg's. It rounds out a good bevy of info that you will need to deal with and treat your endometriosis.
