The Endometriosis Diet is Just The First Step
There are multiple things that you can do to help endometriosis, like stretching, exercising, do yoga, and more.
One thing that changed my life was applying a daily moisturizer that's 100% chemical free, vegan, and naturally healing.
It replenishes the vaginal skin and promotes anti-inflammation and rejuvenation.
First of all, thank you!! I have stage 4 endometriosis. I started my endo diet journey about 1 month ago and couldn’t find many recipes that contained the proper nutrients.

I have already noticed a difference in my energy levels each day. Your recipes are a life savor and so delicious! I can’t thank you enough!!
