Endometriosis is a debilitating condition affecting millions of women worldwide, yet many go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years.
Early diagnosis leads to better outcomes and improved quality of life. As part of our Endometriosis Awareness Month series, I’m joined by holistic health coach Khush Sra today. In addition to being an Endometriosis Nutritionist, Khush has personally suffered with endometriosis and was diagnosed around 20 years ago. She knows the ins and outs of endo, not just from a practitioner’s perspective and as a woman and a patient.
In my practice, I’ve found the best approach to treating endo is multifaceted and covers multiple angles. Many surgeons who are excellent at removing endometriosis tissue don’t have a plan for preventing recurrence beyond prescribing the pill. This is where nutritionists like Khush can come in and provide additional tools and expertise.
In this conversation, Khush and I discuss her journey from years of deteriorating health with severe endometriosis to being completely symptom free, her approach to working with endometriosis patients, the importance of understanding the individual when creating a treatment plan, and more. This interview was one of my favorites so far, and I believe this is one of the most important topics we’ve discussed. I know you’ll get a lot of value from what Khush shares.
