One in every ten women suffer from endometriosis – a complex, lifelong and often incredibly uncomfortable disease.  

And unfortunately, many women go years  — or even their entire lifetime — without receiving a proper diagnosis – and are left in the dark about ways to manage their condition. 

So whether you’re a man or a woman, pay attention: what we share on this episode could help someone you love.

Because my guest says that there is hope for ALL women struggling with endometriosis – and that for many, life-altering surgeries and medical procedures may NOT be the only answer. 

She’s Jessica Murnane, a sought-after speaker, host, and women’s health advocate. She’s also the author of the new book, Know Your Endo: An Empowering Guide To Health + Hope With Endometriosis. 

Jessica shares her unique story navigating life with endometriosis. She also shares how diet, movement, and effective stress management, can help women across the globe manage their symptoms and take back control of their bodies.
