From the Back Cover:

The definitive guide to living with endometriosis

Some eighty-nine million women worldwide have endometriosis--or "endo," as it is commonly called. For decades, women with the disease have suffered in silence, and faced a nightmare of misinformation, myths, and unsuccessful treatments. Today, thanks to new awareness and research, hope and relief are available.

Endometriosis is a chronic, often painful hormonal and immune disease that affects girls as young as eight and women in their reproductive years and beyond. The name itself comes from endometrium, the tissue lining inside the uterus. With endo, tissue similar to this lining is found elsewhere, usually in the abdomen, where it causes pain, inflammation, internal bleeding, scarring, infertility, and a host of other medical problems.

Now research pioneered by the Endometriosis Association has established that endo is a "tip of the iceberg" disease. Endometriosis: The Complete Reference for Taking Charge of Your Health provides groundbreaking information on the disease and its relation to several other health problems, including certain cancers, autoimmune problems, environmental illness, and fibromyalgia. Based on the latest research gathered and conducted by Mary Lou Ballweg and the Endometriosis Association, this guide includes information on:

  • Surgery and other treatment options
  • The role of diet and nutrition in healing
  • The connection between endometriosis and cancer
  • Infertility and endometriosis
  • Teens with the disease
  • Surprising new information on menopause and endometriosis

Besides invaluable and cutting-edge advice on treatment this guide also features real women's stories that explore the aspects of living with this disease. This book equips you with the tools you need not only to live with endometriosis but to live well.

Mary Lou Ballweg is founder, president, and executive director of the Endometriosis Association. She is quoted regularly by many major newspapers and magazines.

The Endometriosis Association was founded in 1980 to offer those with endometriosis support and information, educate the public and medical community about the disease, and promote endo research. Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this international organization has members and groups worldwide.
