elf-care cannot be underestimated. In fact, it is foundational to your entire wellbeing.

…And I mean this is a very pragmatic sense. The more time spent with the sympathetic nervous system switched on, the more chronically imbalanced we will get.

So while the sympathetic nervous system plays an important role in the body – it’s responsible for your “fight, flight or freeze” reflexes needed for critical situations – we shouldn’t live our lives in this heightened state of stress.

You see, stress is at the root of all chronic ‘dis-ease’ (of blood, nerve, lymph). 

…And since having endometriosis is an additional stress on top of daily life, it is vital to spend time each day to empty your bucket.
