Endometriosis is a condition where endometrium (the lining of the uterus) is found in locations outside the uterus. This misplaced tissue may be found on the ovaries, uterus, bowel, bladder utero-sacral ligaments (ligaments that hold the uterus in place), or peritoneum (covering lining of the pelvis and abdominal cavity.) On rare occasions it can be found in other distant sites.

Endometriosis is one of the most common gynecological diseases, affecting more than 5.5 million women in North America alone.

The most common symptoms of endometriosis are very painful cramps or periods, heavy periods, chronic pelvic pain (which includes lower or mid back pain), intestinal pain, pain during or after sex, infertility. About 30 percent to 40 percent of women with endometriosis are infertile, making it one of the top three causes for female infertility.

Who Gets Endometriosis?
Endometriosis can affect any menstruating woman, from the time of her first period to menopause, regardless of whether or not she has had children, her race or ethnicity, or her socio-economic status. Endometriosis can sometimes persist after menopause.

Recovery Plan:
The following supplement program has assisted many women with endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and/or uterine fibroids. The products that are listed can be purchased at . The reason that Shaklee products have been chosen for this program is that the products are produced with the highest standards of quality control and have been shown to produce results in double-blind clinical studies. Numerous women’s clinics around the country have now adopted this program due to the rapid results it produces.

Basic Nutritional Foundation:

Soy Protein Drink    3 – 6 Tbs. per day a.m. +/or midday (not p.m.)

Adjust amounts as needed for pain. As the condition heals, the need for these supplements will decrease accordingly.
