Sally has worked with many sufferer's of Endometriosis in her 12 years in private practice and has helped many obtain long term results not only in effective pain relief without the use of pharamaceutical medications or the oral contraceptive pill, but through providing a preventative approach using nutritional medicine and whole food eating as a means to avoid repeated surgical intervention. Sallys' focus in treating endometriosis is to address the underlying hormomal imbalances and inflammatory responses driving the growth and proliferation of endometriosis, beyond mere symptom relief.
Sally combines a specific eating program and nutritional medicine products to obtain these results with great success.

Endometriosis is an inflammatory condition that occurs when the tissue that lines the endometrium (wall of the uterus), starts to grow outside the uterus cavity. The misplaced tissue implants itself onto other organs such as the bowel or ovaries and continues to grow and function, just like a weed. Approximately one in ten women suffer this condition at some stage during their menstruating years. It can occur anytime, from the onset of a woman's periods up to menopause.
Endometriosis is usually characterised by chronic pelvic pain, either with menstruation and or sexual intercourse a heavy periods. The conventional medicine approach to treatment is surgery to remove the excess endometrial tissue, followed by the prescription of the oral contraception pill, as a means to control pain associated with periods and or to allow a women to stop menstruation all together. Endometriosis is typically an oestrogen dependant condition, meaning growth of the endometrial tissue is reliant upon the production of oestrogen, however imbalances in healthy oestrogen levels can occur, which feeds the excess growth of endometriosis.
For this reason, the oral contraceptive pill which contains synthetic oestrogen, is not a healthy or effective, long term treatment option. It is simply a band aid effect used to manage pain, rather than address the underlying cause and can in fact make the condition return after surgery to remove it.
In chronic cases, surgery is an effective option to remove the excessive endometrial tissue from the affected areas of the body. Once this has been done, the next step is to switch off the inflammatory process and regulate hormone levels, such as oestrogen, progesterone, and insulin. The long term management and prevention of Endometriosis can be achieved with great success, through adopting a nutritional / orthomolecular medicine approach. Using specific wholefoods, vitamins, minerals and herbs, this condition can be switched off if not significantly reduced in severity.
Endometriosis is usually diagnosed through a non invasive surgical procedure known as Laparoscopy. If Endometriosis is suspected, your GP may refer you for an initial ultra sound and then onto a Gynaecologist who will decide if it is likely you suffer from Endometriosis. Surgery to remove Endometriosis is usually conducted at the same time as the investigative laparoscopy procedure.
Sally's Top Tip for Endometriosis sufferers -
'THE BEST DEFENCE against controlling the growth of Endometriosis is to combine a low carb diet with taking this amazing natural plant compound Indole-3-Carbinol, found in Estrosense and Ultra Muscleze to regulate insulin levels.
Read about one of Sally's Patients response to her treatment program for Endometriosis
I suffered unbelievably debilitating menstrual pain for many years leaving me bedridden for at least a day a month, with severe cramping, vomiting, diarrhoea and near fainting. I was told by numerous specialists that I was just one of those 'unlucky women' who suffered from ‘bad periods’. After much persistence, I was finally diagnosed with category 4 Endometriosis. I underwent a series of operations and was advised that I would have to undergo annual surgery up until having children.
I decided to seek an alternative approach to regain good health in Sally. Through her vast knowledge and experience in this area, she set me on a new path to good health, like I had never experienced before. Her ability to explain the interactive processes in how the body works was extremely useful in understanding which dietary and lifestyle choices would impact upon and prevent the Endometriosis from returning and how I could avoid annual surgery. It was imperative for me to radically rethink my diet and make the lifestyle changes she also recommended. Once I implemented her action plan, the results were immediate and my body reacted positively. My periods no longer take over my life each month and as testament to Sally’s treatment and advice, I have not been back to hospital for surgery for 8 years!
