Beating Endo

A Holistic Treatment Plan for Endometriosis

Product Description and Author Information

About the Book

From two of the country’s leading experts in women’s health, a hopeful, practical, and essential toolkit for women with endometriosis, filled with practical guidance and a proven, holistic treatment regimen. Approximately 1 in 10 women in the United States has been diagnosed endometriosis, an inflammatory disease that is the result of abnormal tissue growing around the uterus and throughout the pelvis, causing chronic pain and, oftentimes, infertility. Unfortunately, despite prevalence of “endo,” it takes the average women a decade to receive an accurate diagnosis. And once she does, she’s often given little more than a prescription for pain killers and a referral for surgery.

Leading gynecologist Dr. Iris Orbuch has received many such referrals—she’s performed thousands of surgeries deemed clinically “successful.” But Dr. Orbach grew increasingly frustrated with the metrics of her patients’ success in the real world. Many reported no meaningful change in their quality of life post-surgery—they were still in pain. Driven to achieve better outcomes for her patients, she partnered with acclaimed physical therapist Amy Stein to create a new paradigm for endometriosis treatment.

In Beating Endo, Amy, a pelvic pain specialist, and Dr Stein, offer a holistic and guide to living with endo. With a proven program that address nutrition, physical activity, stress reduction, product choices, and more, they offer women suffering with the mental and physical pain of endo a long-waited resource for healing. Incorporating the expertise of a network of endometriosis “warriors”—including doctors, nurses, mental health providers, nutritionists, acupuncturists, and yoga masters—Beating Endo is the first resource of its kind to an interdisciplinary approach to restoring health, vitality, and quality of life to women.
