Endometriosis – a 27 Year Journey with Heather Smidt (Ep. 5)

This episode is for EVERYONE –  especially helpful for those with unexplained infertility, multiple losses, or multiple failed IVF rounds.

Endometriosis has been misdiagnosed, underdiagnosed, misunderstood, and dismissed by many in the medical field for far too long. There are millions of women walking this earth in pain and not getting the help they need and deserve. And that needs to change!

Endometriosis is also a common barrier to conception and pregnancy – and that’s why we’re talking about this today.

In today’s episode, I interviewed my first guest! Health Smidt of Wander Well Acupuncture. She is an acupuncturist, massage therapist, reiki master, cranial sacral therapist, and fertility expert.

Heather is also an endowarrior and has extensively researched, treated herself and others with acupuncture, and is an advocate for endometriosis awareness.

This episode is for EVERYONE –  especially helpful for those with unexplained infertility, multiple losses, or multiple failed IVF rounds. Plus – perhaps you have been minimizing the pain and suffering you go through during your period and could possibly have endo.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • What endometriosis is and isn’t
  • What sorts of surgeries and diagnostic procedures are available
  • The intersection of endometriosis and fertility
  • We hear Heathers CRAZY story of dealing with endo for 27 years before getting a diagnosis
  • How to treat Endometriosis holistically
  • Where to find trustworthy and helpful information about endometriosis

I loved having Heather on the podcast! She really is one of my favorite humans in the world – so full of knowledge and compassion for this community. If you live in the Boston area – go get a total reset!
