Is There an Alternative to Hysterectomy for Adenomyosis?

“Many women with Endometriosis also experience Adenomyosis alongside having Endometriosis. It is like a double whammy of symptoms and pain! Though many doctors and practitioners often recommend a hysterectomy as the only solution at resolving Adenomyosis, I managed to track down an amazing woman who decided to go against this advice and find a better way for herself.
Heather Jacobsen is the founder of the amazing support space Natural Endometriosis and Adenomyosis Treatment (NEAT) and has been supporting women around the world and giving them ideas on how they can better manage their symptoms naturally with having endometriosis and adenomyosis.
I was lucky enough to interview Heather for Endo Empowered and would love to share some of her tips and insights which lead her to lead a 90% pain free life, without the need for a hysterectomy.”
