Project Description

Hi I’m Sara and I’m a Certified Hormone Specialist and one of the only Adenomyosis Coaches in the world.  My mission is to help women ages 20-50 who feel tired and anxious about their heavy periods improve their worst symptoms holistically and step into radiance.  One out of five women have heavy periods, and one in ten women have adenomyosis and/or endometriosis, painful pelvic conditions that cause significant negative impact on a woman's quality of life despite medical treatment.  On my personal journey with adenomyosis and endometriosis, I felt exhausted trying to search for information on these conditions, and I wanted to connect with other women who completely understood what I was going through.

 I created the online magazine Gush as a place for brave beauties with adenomyosis, endometriosis, &/or heavy periods to find resources, information, and community in order to empower their journey to healing, and to manage debilitating symptoms better so they can get their life back.  Gush will feature stories that will help people feel connected to and supported by a broader community.  The magazine will feature stories from women who've been through these experiences.  Gush is just getting off the ground, and the funds will be used to hire an editor and graphic designer. Through my rewards, I'm offering one-on-one consultations to help women make lifestyle changes, reduce their stress, improve their sleep, and get connected to support resources to help with these debilitating mentrual health issues. 

 The average doctor's visit is only 16 minutes long; this is hardly enough time for a woman to gain a thorough understanding of her condition, where to find resources, and how to manage symptoms through self care.  By funding this project, thousands of women will be able to find relief from pain that is preventing them from being the shining stars they are.  I will give ten percent of my campaign profits to the nonprofit organization International Pelvic Pain Society to fund research.  With your funding, I will hire an editor and graphic designer to help develop and launch the magazine.   I am a foster parent and an entrepreneur.  Supporting my campaign will help women who are in need of answers to find relief for debilitating conditions.  Help me spread awareness to ensure people have access to information and resources.  There is a huge gender gap in investment funding; you can be part of the solution by investing in businesses owned by women such as myself.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart backers for your help!

The Project FAQs

What is adenomyosis and endometriosis?  Adenomyosis is a condition where endometrial glands appear within the tissues in the muscle of the uterus; this causes heavy bleeding and intense pelvic pain.  Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus causing chronic pelvic pain and many other symptoms.

Why haven't I heard of adenomyosis?   The National Institute of Health spends $35.66 annually for each person in the U.S. with diabetes.  For each woman with endometriosis, only $0.92 is spent.  The NIH has recently cut research funding for endometriosis in half.  Adenomyosis research funding is even more minimal.

Why do we need an online magazine for women with these conditions? Women write me daily who are desperate to find relief for pelvic pain and bleeding.  It is ruining their lives and medications for these conditions often cause unwanted and long term side effects.  Through diet, exercises, supplements, stress reduction, support, and education about various medical treatments, women can find the self care needed to ease their debilitating symptoms.
