When the pain is so intense that you can barely breathe, or you are so tired from day-in and day-out pain for months, it’s hard to think of anything but feeling a bit of relief. We’ve been there. From being curled up in a ball on the bathroom floor, to being rushed to the hospital, or feeling the crushing fatigue of hormonal imbalance, we understand how you feel. But, once the severity of the pain lifts a bit, or you get a bit of energy back, it can be really hard to maintain the daily nutrition, movement, mindfulness, sleep, and other key ingredients to your pain relief recipe consistently for the long term. That is why having a vision for WHY you want to be not just out of pain, but vibrantly healthy is essential. It’s not enough for long term healing to just be running from the pain, you need to be making these lifestyle changes for the sake of a larger vision - playing with your kids, spending more time with friends, getting back to work, doing a walking tour of Europe - whatever your vision is, getting clear will help to keep you focused, even when the going gets tough.
There is no such thing as an "IC diet", "Endo diet", "Candida diet"or any one-size-fits-all diet for your diagnosis. For some women with pelvic pain, there are underlying autoimmune issues, and they will be on a more plant based paleo diet to support their immune and mitochondrial health. For other women, histamine, oxalate, or salicylate sensitivities can be a problem. Others do best on a low inflammatory diet. Still others do best by simply supporting better digestive health and eating more mindfully. We’ll support you with a step-by-step process and resources for finding your most healing and nourishing nutrition plan.
In the short term, you will likely do best with some sort of restrictive diet with a focus on adding in nourishing foods. (You’ll figure out the details for YOU in Module 3.) But in the long term, you’ll need to find the most diverse nutrition plan possible. I want you to be able to eat as flexibly as possible to avoid nutrient deficiencies, and to enjoy healthy and delicious food for your health and for pleasure with the people in your life you love to eat with!
If you’re overwhelmed by reading blog posts or going to the health food store to try to figure out which nutrient and herbal supplements are right for your pain relief, these modules will clear up your confusion. Just like when it comes to your food plan there is no one-size-fits-all supplement protocol for everyone. So, we’ll show you what to consider when it comes to supplementing your nutrition needs, supporting hormone balance, immune health, and pain relief with vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements. And, we’ll show you how to find good quality supplements.
Pelvic health involves many factors, not just nutrition. Learn how to better manage your stress, schedule, and goals. How to sleep better. How to understand the science behind pain, and how to calm your nervous system. If you tend to give of yourself to the point of depletion, always feel overscheduled, or simply don’t know how to calm your body and mind without alcohol, sleep medication, or weeks of vacation on a quiet island, these modules will connect how stress management, sleep, and calming your immune and nervous systems can dramatically reduce your pain. If this is hard for you to do on your own... don’t worry, we have resources for you!
No one can get to the root of her pelvic pain alone. Our coaches provide highly skilled and specialized support, AND sometimes you need a surgical consult, local pelvic floor physical therapist, or want to attend a local yoga class that will not increase your pain. There are skilled professionals available to help. They can sometimes be hard to find, and sometimes it can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. But, skilled, compassionate healing professional exist all over the world, and we’ll help you to find them through our wide reaching global networks.
Sometimes movement can be scary when you’re in pain. In this module, we’ll talk about how to develop a safe, healing movement practice to reduce your pelvic pain. And, we’ll discuss strategies for using movement as a consistent, daily practice for the long term to keep your pain down.
Whether your pain is cyclical or not, low estrogen, high estrogen, stress hormone imbalances, and more can impact the severity of your pain and how it is triggered. Getting your hormones in balance with lifestyle medicine, nourishment, sleep and circadian rhythm balance is a key piece of the puzzle for most women with pelvic or sexual pain.
We have taken our experience with working with thousands of women with pelvic pain, and put all of that wisdom into an easy to follow plan, just for you - with skilled support!
