What is Endometriosis?
As defined by EndoFound:
Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the inner lining of the uterus, also known as the endometrium, is found outside its normal location, where the tissue should not be. This may result in inflammation, as the tissue even outside the uterus will respond to the monthly fluctuations of the menstrual cycle.
The disease affects 1 in 10 reproductive-aged individuals (aged 12-52) - an estimated 200 million women worldwide - and many often experience a decade-long delay in diagnosis. Currently, there is no known exact cause of endometriosis, and there is no cure.
Why Endometriosis Foundation of America?
Rachel, the owner of TCP had been battling with endometriosis since age 10 with many false diagnoses causing a delay in her diagnosis. She was fortunate enough to have found a compassionate doctor, who took the time to listen and diagnose her properly. After multiple surgeries and the support of the endo community she was able to overcome a lot of dark days due to the pain and daily life of living with a chronic illness with no known cure. Through her struggles with endometriosis, she learned to eat for her body and did extensive research on food triggers. She shared her journey on instagram where she was inspired and encouraged to share recipes and start a business. The endo community gave her the inspiration and motivates her to help others with endometriosis and chronic illness. This is her way of giving back to those who helped her along her journey.
Endometriosis affects 1in10 women worldwide. Where and why endometriosis forms is still a mystery. Research, education, and awareness is lacking even in the medical community.
