Health & Fitness Update

I know it’s been super quiet on my blog lately and I apologize for that. I love writing and editing but I just wasn’t in the right headspace and did not know what to say. Many of you know that I was struggling with my health a lot in the past 4 years and had have multiple surgeries done. I also got diagnosed with multiple autoimmune issues which one of them was endometriosis.

Many of you know that I had been suffering from tremendous lower stomach pain, especially during my period, due to endometriosis. Read more about my personal story with endometriosis here. Fortunately there’s many things you can do to reduce this pain. With or without a chronic condition lower stomach pain can occur in the most uncomfortable moments, brining along sooo much stress. That is why I have been wearing special period undies for about 6 months now. And trust me when I say, THEY ARE A TOTAL GAME CHANGER!

Caroline's Endo Story

Ever since my first period I’ve experienced lower stomach pain and heavy bleeding. So my gynecologist prescribed me the pill very early on. Even though I was on birth control for almost 10 years I still had awful period pain and my body started holding fluids. When I was 23 I decided to get a chopper IUD. After a year of trying very hard to make the IDU work I had it removed because the pain was just too bad.

7 easy Steps to detox after quitting the Pill

About 4 weeks ago I posted that I stopped taking synthetic hormones because of the severe side-effects that came along with them. Now I might have to note that I didn’t take synthetic hormones for contraceptive measures but because I have a disease, called endometriosis. If you are new here might as well want to check out previous posts on that topic, like ‘my personal endo story’. I am personally not a big fan of any form of meds and would rather heal everything naturally but after my second surgery due to severe endometriosis I felt like I was forced to…

The YuYu Bottle against Pelvic Pain

If you regularly read my blog or instagram you probably already know my endometriosis story, that I currently went off synthetic hormones and that I’ve had a lot of lower stomach and pelvic pain in the past, especially around my period. Right now I’m in the second half of my luteal phase which means I’ll be on my period soon. The second half of your luteal phase is also the phase when PMS symptoms might occur. These could be mild or severe, just to give you a few examples here; it could be mood swings, headaches/ migraines, holding fluids, swelling of breasts as well as lower stomach pain.

No More to Synthetic Hormones

About a week ago, I finally said NO MORE! No more synthetic hormones in my body. I started sharing about my current hormonal issues a couple week ago on IG stories I think. I know that it might sometimes be hard to grasp for other people so questions like,“but I thought you said you were fine?“ will always come because it gets tiring to talk about diseases all the time so not talking about it sometimes for me feels like escaping into another and better world.

My sugar addiction is very real

I have a confession to make. Ever since Christmas I‘ve fallen out of a really good habit. Around the holidays and probably because of the weather and holiday stress I started over-consuming carbs and thus sugar (good sugar, but still). What used to be little treats throughout the week became a daily habit. I hands down have had two gf pretzel sticks for breakfast, two plates of gluten-free pasta with store bought sauce (which also includes sugar), an avocado salad with 2 avos for dinner and gluten-free vegan tripple chocolate brownies as a snack through-out the day.

Reflections 2018

t’s that time of the year again. I guess it’s needless to say that I had so many plans but it all turned out very different. I’ve kinda lost and found myself again. I also lost things and people that previously were important to me and found others who are important to me now. I had gained 10 pounds and lost 15. I had evolved a lot in my physical yoga practice only to fall sick again and being unable to do things anymore that had previously worked so hard on. In fact my illness played a big part in 2018…

I stopped taking Hormones

I don't want to overdo these endo updates on here because I don't want to leave the impression that my life revolves all around my disease as usually that's not that case at all. But there's def been going on a lot in this department for the last couple of weeks. (…) Only to recap what has been going since March: I had to go to the ER again where they discovered another huge cyst on my ovary. They wanted to do an emergency surgery on me right away to which I said NO and thus discharged myself…

Endo Update: June 10th 2018

The last week I physically felt great while I was struggling mentally. I had issues falling asleep (or sleeping at all for that matter) which ultimately lead to being grumpy and feeling sluggish and fed up with basically everything - for no real reason - everything was just as always ... I started practicing more again, was outside a lot and picked up a copy of my new favorite book, called ’woman code‘. I read to whole book in only 4 short days…
