Endometriosis

Update 2013. The below post is from 2007. I’ve since healed (functionally cured) my endometriosis: Endometriosis? Mine responded to natural care. Here I email the MD who mocked me when I refused her “care” In the process of discovering how contrary to well-being psychiatry is, I’ve uncovered massive amounts of dirt on all western medicine.

Paradox in healing and life

Had I had this book and followed it’s simple advice I’m quite certain the entire trajectory of my psychiatrized life would never have happened.
