At PHRC we want to do our part to help people better understand pelvic pain syndromes and more importantly, help people suffering with these diagnoses get the help they need to recover. Since knowledge is power we created 6 videos and blog posts that we hope people find useful. This week, in our sixth webinar of the Pelvic Pain Explained Webinar series, I had the honor of talking about a topic I feel passionately about: endometriosis. Endometriosis is a complex disease that many women suffer from. There is a huge need for education in this population and in this webinar I hope to do just that, educate more people about this disease! Hopefully the information in my webinar and in this blog posts will help people better understand how their symptoms happened and arm them with the tools they need to get better. Listed below are many of the resources I use and I mention many of them in the webinar.
In case you missed it, here is a link to my Endometriosis Webinar.
“The Endometriosis Podcast” by Nicholas Fogelson https://podcast.app/the-endometriosis-podcast-p751490/
“Natural MD Radio” by Aviva Romm (the episode specifically on magnesium for women is what I referenced in the blog post, but she has really great ones!)
Some other podcasts that may be relevant are:
