The pain associated with dysmenorrhea or endometriosis is classified as a ‘chronic’ health condition – The word chronic infers that it cannot be cured. It may be able to be managed through a variety of means, but it certainly cannot be cured… or can it?
Is it even vaguely possible that period pain and/or endometriosis could have their origins in long forgotten, emotionally challenging memories? Clearly this seems like a very unlikely proposition.
If you consider the prevalence of these conditions – some reports suggest as many as 80% of women suffer from dysmenorrhea; a fancy name for period pain. They also suggest around 1 in 10 women suffer from endometriosis. This prompts some rather interesting questions:
- Why don’t all women suffer from period pain?
- Why do the symptoms seem to vary in intensity so dramatically from one person to another?
- Why do the symptoms seem to improve for some women as they get older?
- Why in some instances do they first appear later in life?
There are a lot of variations in the individual experience of period pain. But what about endometriosis? Why is it more common in women aged between 30 and 45? Why doesn’t a hysterectomy always solve the problem?
Irrespective of the myriad of questions we could ask, the really important question; and the one this study aims to answer, is simply this: Can a Spontaneous Remission from period pain (dysmenorrhea) or endometriosis, be consciously and deliberately caused? Yes… or No?
If period pain or endometriosis has been a challenge you would rather not continue to experience, apply to join the study. What have you got to lose?
If you are interested in participating in our research project, with the intention of experiencing a spontaneous remission from period pain or endometriosis – We would love to hear from you.
