Publisher's Summary

From two of the world’s leading experts in endometriosis comes an essential, first-of-its kind book that unwraps the mystery of the disease and gives women the tools they need to reclaim their lives from it.

Approximately one out of every 10 women has endometriosis, an inflammatory disease that causes chronic pain, limits life’s activities, and may lead to infertility. Despite the disease’s  prevalence, the average woman may suffer for a decade or more before receiving an accurate diagnosis. Once she does, she’s often given little more than a prescription for pain killers and a referral for the wrong kind of surgery. Beating Endo arms women with what has long been missing - even within the medical community - namely, cutting-edge knowledge of how the disease works and what the endo sufferer can do to take charge of her fight against it. 

Leading gynecologist and endometriosis specialist Dr. Iris Kerin Orbuch and world-renowned pelvic pain specialist and physical therapist Dr. Amy Stein have long partnered with each other and with other healthcare practitioners to address the disease’s host of co-existing conditions - which can include pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, gastrointestinal ailments, painful bladder syndrome, central nervous system sensitization - through a whole-mind/whole-body approach. Now, Beating Endo formalizes the multimodal program they developed, offering listeners an anti-inflammatory lifestyle protocol that incorporates physical therapy, nutrition, mindfulness, and environment to systematically addresses each of the disease’s co-conditions on an ongoing basis up to and following excision surgery. This is the program that has achieved successful outcomes for their patients; it is the program that works to restore health, vitality, and quality of life to women with endo. 

No more “misdiagnosis roulette” and no more limits on women’s lives: Beating Endo puts the tools of renewed health in the hands of those whose health is at risk.

A must read!

The Endo journey is hard! For me this book was both encouraging and discouraging! The discouraging part is not the fault of the writers though but, of our healthcare system and the lack of information out there for those with Endometriosis! Read / Listen to this book if you or someone in your family has endometriosis! It is important to know both the good and the bad. I greatly appreciate the Doctors who took the time to write this and who are doing everything they can to help!!!

Great resource!

My husband purchased this book in audio format for me. Even though I underwent complete hysterectomy 10+ years ago, it has raised questions about my continuing health into my elderly years that I hope to have answered. I can think of at least 1 young friend to share it with. Thank you for sharing your expertise & insights.
