My endometriosis journey

Candice Mason

In my late teens I was diagnosed with endometriosis, my treatment resulted in me undergoing a medically induced menopause. As a result of that treatment I find myself, at just 40, entering early menopause. During this time, I began to explore how natural remedies could support me through this time.    

I found it amazing to learn you could select and mix different plants for specific health benefits. As I march confidently out of my 30’s to the brave new world of my 40’s, I have turned more and more to herbs and plants to support my changing body and my wellbeing having suffered with issues with my sleep, energy, anxiety, endometriosis, and the initial stages of perimenopause. 

If you suffer from endometriosis, you may be looking for natural remedies to relieve your symptoms. One popular option is herbal tea. Herbal teas are made from a variety of plants and herbs, each with their own medicinal properties that can help reduce inflammation and support overall health. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of herbal tea for endometriosis and how you can incorporate it into your daily routine. 

Herbal tea is a great way to naturally manage the symptoms associated with endometriosis by reducing inflammation and providing stress relief. I can personally attest to their benefits and I have personally found them to be a great addition to my overall wellbeing and self-care. My Wellness collection of all 3 blends are the one I have been regularly blending to support my own personal journey. I would love you to try them and let me know what you think.

What is Endometriosis? 

Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. This tissue can cause pain, heavy periods, and other symptoms that can greatly impact quality of life. Endometriosis affects up to 10% of women in their reproductive years and can make it difficult to manage day-to-day life. 

Navigating the challenges of endometriosis and its related symptoms requires a comprehensive approach that considers both physical and emotional wellbeing. While traditional medical treatments play a crucial role, the incorporation of natural remedies can offer a holistic approach to managing endometriosis and its impacts. Among these remedies, herbal tea stands out as a soothing and supportive option. Harnessing the power of various herbs with their medicinal properties, herbal teas can effectively address inflammation and provide stress relief, which are particularly vital for those grappling with endometriosis.

Herbal teas have been used as medicinal remedies for centuries due to their anti-inflammatory properties. There are many types of herbal tea that can be beneficial for endometriosis symptoms such as cramping, bloating, fatigue, headaches, and more.  

It's important to note that much of my journey has been around managing inflammation to combat the pain I was in.

So much so that i blended a tea to remind me of the importance of drinking more!
