Recently Anthony William did a Hay House Radio episode about endometriosis, fibroids and PCOS. (Take a listen to the recording here). I’m a huge fan of William’s and have found great results by following the advice he provides in his Medical Medium books.
One of William’s primary messages is that chronic illness goes back to “bugs” in your system. These bugs show up in the way of invasive, hard-to-defeat bacteria and viruses including streptococcus (strep), the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), HHV-6 and others in the herpes family, including shingles, the human papillomavirus (HPV), and more.
Often times you’re prescribed antibiotics to help ward off these “bugs”, (if possible) but as William points out in the recent episode, where do they end up then?
Viruses, bacteria & your reproductive system
According to William, there’s viral debris and/or bacteria by-product that can end up in your reproductive system. It builds up in your tissues and couples with stray endometrial cells and other things to form a toxic combo.
Unhealthy cells develop and expand where they’re not supposed to be. They combine with unhealthy hormones found in the environment and are partly responsible, he says, for endometriosis.
Cysts tribe around unhealthy cells, and there’s a calcification that happens as your immune system protects you. The cyst’s purpose is to trap these negative factors inside, so they don’t do further harm. According to William, each cyst in your body contains information about toxins and viruses in your system.
Since every woman’s experience is different with endometriosis, perhaps this is a big reason why. There are different combinations of toxic factors unique to your experience in this life.
A history of viruses, bacteria and endometriosis…
This all got me thinking back on my own life and how there has been a progression of chronic illness that followed from these various viruses and bacteria in my body.
It started with me as a kid when I suffered with horrible sore throats and swollen glands. I’m lucky I still have my tonsils!
That expanded to a diagnosis of mononucleosis, otherwise known as mono, glandular fever or “the kissing disease” when I was 15. (According to William, mono is the second stage of EBV. Learn more here.)
I got super sick for months, and never really felt right afterwards. I struggled with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), which only worsened as my teenage years progressed and I filled my body with drugs, alcohol and fast food.
One said drug included birth control pills, which I started popping at 17.
Late in my teens, early in my twenties, I was diagnosed with chlamydia and shortly thereafter with the human papillomavirus virus (HPV), both of which are part of the herpes family of viruses.
My twenties were full of yeast infections, urinary tract infections, and plenty of mood swings! Haha.
Late in my twenties I was diagnosed with endometriosis, followed a couple of years later by a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
In the years to follow I struggled with strep and shingles.
In short, my body’s been a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses pretty much my whole life. And I can’t help but wonder now where does that all go?
It makes sense to me that it’s gathering all together inside of there. That certainly would explain all the bumps and swollen glands I feel everywhere.
Neurotoxins, chronic pain & fatigue
The debris from these viruses and bacteria cause pain, swollen glands, and bloating. They contribute to all that comes with a typical endometriosis flare-up.
In later stages, The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) releases a neurotoxin that inflames up your central nervous system causing chronic pain, fatigue and a slew of other seemingly unrelated symptoms like heart palpitations, migraines and insomnia.
So, what’s next?
If you’re going to feel better with endometriosis, you have to clear out the bugs!
I think there’s too much focus being spent on endometriosis and the hormonal factor. You’re offered birth control pills, progesterone creams, etc., but this doesn’t get to the root issue.
And really, these synthetic hormones cause more issues as they feed the bacteria and viruses in your system, decrease your stomach acid, and wear on your liver.
Celery juice & endometriosis
Anthony William’s Medical Medium books are all about killing off the bugs in your system, so that you can start to feel better.
A big piece of his healing protocol is celery juice! This has been part of my daily routine for the past couple of years and it has been a game-changer.
William’s new book is all about celery juice and it’s what prompted his new podcast episode about endometriosis, fibroids and PCOS.
According to William, celery juice contains special sodium cluster salts that breaks down scar tissue and adhesions.
Photochemical compounds in celery juice stops abnormal tissue cell growth and inhibitors in celery juice push back endometrial tissue that tries to establish itself outside your uterus.
On the positive side?
Like I said, I’ve been following William’s advice for over two years, and I’ve found great results! And if you’ve been following me here on the blog you know how many other things I’ve tried! (Some of which makes me laugh now).
If this all feels super overwhelming to you, no worries, that’s a big reason why I put together Peace with Endo Connect, which walks you step-by-step down the healing journey with support and accountability along the way, so that you too can feel better with endometriosis.
Much of the teachings that I share in the program have come from the lessons I’ve learned from Anthony William along the way.
I’ll be opening the doors to Peace with Endo Connect again soon. Find out more and join the waitlist here.
Have you tried the Medical Medium protocols? Have you tried the celery juice? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
