    A Muslim Woman's Story With Healing Pelvic Pain

    In this episode I am joined by a 24 year-old Muslim woman who shares her incredible story about how she healed her pelvic pain. She discusses the many treatment methods she tried, including both eastern and western modalities, in addition to the therapeutic effects that mind-body healing modalities hard for her, all of which she reflects on throughout the episode. She also shares the cultural biases that many practitioners had and how that got in the way of her healing process, but also how she overcame that. This was such an eye-opening episode!

Life changing

Anyone that experiences any sort of pelvic pain or symptoms should be listening to this podcast! The multiple success stories on healing chronic pain through mindbody medicine really are life changing. This podcast has opened my mind up to so much and I know i’ll be able to heal fully one day because I’m already half way there. I finally feel like I have an answer after months of pain & nothing physically wrong with my body(according to doctors). IT JUST MAKES SENSE.

Andslat ,

Thank you! THANK YOU!!

My story is long and kinda fragmented. The cliff note version…four plus years ago I had a UTI. I was treated with Bactrim. This UTI was five months out of a vertical Incision hysterectomy where everything was removed except for my ovaries. I had a LARGE mass (a bit smaller than a volleyball) which turned out to be tons of fibroids. Anyway…had this uti, took the wicked antibiotic and the uti went away, but the feeling never did. I went in at least a dozen times looking for help. Nothing. So then I went with alternative treatments and spent $1000s of dollars. Nothing. Finally, 10 mos out I met with a urogynocologist and he dx me with hypertonic pelvic muscles. I started with pelvic floor therapy. Again…no improvement after six visits. Went home and after another frantic google search stumbled onto the tmswiki page. And that led me down the mind-body connection. I went to my seventh pelvic therapy visit and told my therapist my findings and that I was going to cancel all my appointments. Within a month I was completely back to normal eating and drinking what I wanted and living my life. Fast forward to one month ago. Got another uti. Thought I was in a good place mentally. But here I am again…struggling with a messed up urethra (what I had last time). This time I knew what was going on (although I’ve had three negative cultures since the uti just to make sure). Anyway…found Hannah thru a search for some inspiration. This is an amazing podcast. Now I just need to work this out.
