Conscious Fertility

Just because it’s considered normal does not mean it is healthy!


Millions of women live in pain because their endometriosis remains undiagnosed. Often, doctors ignore symptoms of bloating, constipation, anxiety, headaches, and abdominal pain, assuming that it is just hormonal or nothing “serious”.. Officially, 1 in 9 women are diagnosed with endometriosis, but experts suspect that as many as 1 in 4 women suffer from this silent disruptor.


Today, I welcome filmmaker and activist Shannon Cohn to discuss how endometriosis is disrupting the lives of millions of women and how women can advocate for better care. 


In this episode, Shannon shares how she suffered for years before her diagnosis and how her experience inspired her film Endo What?, which laid the foundation of education for women to understand this disease. Her soon-to-be-released film, Below the Belt, is a call to action for healthcare providers and politicians to ensure women’s symptoms are not ignored.  We have a Vancouver screening of her Movie on April 19th with more details found below.


Regardless of where you are in your journey, Shannon educates you on the warning signs and tips to advocate for your health. Join us as we explore how to balance Eastern and Western medicine to treat endometriosis.
