Years of mysterious, undiagnosed symptoms left me looking at my diet and how food can effect our health. When I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2010 and Fibromyalgia in 2008, I really started to pay attention to my body.

Due to several chronic illnesses, I’ve had to make lifestyle and diet changes. My husband and I conducted research on diet and how it can help chronic pain sufferers to feel better. It was discovered that I do, in fact, suffer from a several food intolerances. Changing my diet over the years has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my personal health.

  • Gluten-free since 2012
  • Dairy-free since June 2016
  • Soy-free since October 2016
  • Oat-free since November 2017

Though I suffer from chronic pain, it is important to keep my body in motion. Exercise is essential to my physical and mental wellness. I’ve been practicing yoga almost daily and walking up to 10 miles a week. Finding the right exercise program is important for keeping you on track.

Though I experience good days and bad days with chronic pain, I’m thankful that God has brought me through each and every challenge. I look forward to many more years of healthy living with Jon and our son.

  1. Hi I have chronic pain for years now . I had endometrosis too. I had the fibro fog and numbness and tingling like you. I was on Glutean free diet in 2008. I did not have positive test for Glutean allergies. I eat whatever now. I am going back on Glutean free diet again this week. I had a hystetectomy in 2001. I’m still having don’t and muscle pain fibre fig etc. Some days better than others. I thank God for His presence in my life without Him I’d be nuts. I’m thankful for my understanding husband for 19 years who has been a blessing to me. We never had children it has been very difficult. I’m 48 now and it seems to be gettin.g harder I.stead of better not having MY Husbands child created hr God because of our love for one another. We are closer them ever God is developing a marriage ministry because of all this . is our website. I am curious if you received a medication called lupron for your endometrosis. Do you currently take anything for the pain like cymbalta or anything besides exercise and diet.


    • Hi Barbara!
      Thanks so much for the comment. I’m thankful to hear the awesome ways that God is working in your life. May He continue to bless your walk and relationship.

      I have not received lupron for my Endo. I am on a medications that help with pain and also hormone treatments. It’s a constant battle, as I’m sure you understand.

      Thank you for reading. God bless you!
