Kate runs a global practice supporting women with endometriosis, PCOS, thyroid health, mood, fatigue, and methylation issues and aims to educate and empower women in making the wisest health and treatment choices for themselves, be that natural, medical, or both.

On this episode, we talk about the importance of self-education and owning your diagnosis, the main symptoms and causes of adenomyosis and endometriosis, how and when to combine medical treatment with natural options, why a restrictive diet isn’t a long-term solution, the best nutritional treatment options, and so much more!
