Endometriosis affects 10 percent of women, and yet, it often takes a woman 10 doctors visits in order to get diagnosed. An inflammatory condition by nature, as endo develops it can put a huge strain on the digestive system, leading to IBS symptoms and often SIBO.

Joining me to discuss how to heal the gut while tackling endo through more invasive measures is Dr. Iris Kerin Orbuch, the Director of the Advanced Gynecologic Laparoscopy Center in Los Angeles, and author of Beating Endo: How to Reclaim Your Life From Endometriosis.

Though the cornerstone of endometriosis treatment is surgical excision of Endometriosis, Dr. Kerin Orbuch understands the importance of incorporating integrative medicine and combining eastern & western medicine approaches in helping her patients heal and getting them on the road to recovery.

A quick taste of what we’ll cover:
  • What is endometriosis and why is it so hard to diagnose
  • Why someone develops endo
  • Overlapping conditions from autoimmune diseases to gut disorder, and especially painful bowel syndrome (Interstitial Cystitis)
  • Ways to heal after Endo surgery that would make someone less likely to develop SIBO
  • How to manage the emotional stress of dealing with both endo and SIBO
  • Limiting systemic inflammation through diet
  • And so much more…
