About the Author
When Aubree was 29 years old she was officially diagnosed with endometriosis. She realized that she did not want to treat it with drugs or surgery. Instead she took an alternative road on a journey of whole healing – on a physical, emotional and spiritual level... and the rest is history.
As a certified holistic health coach and founder of Peace With Endo, Aubree is deeply passionate about wellness and inspiring other women with endometriosis to reconnect with a life filled with love and positive rhythms.

Aubree share’s her life story, poignantly depicting the emotional and physical pain that is endometriosis, including the inability to have children. You can sympathize with her on the lack of education on doctors part as to proper diagnosis and treatment. Why don’t our doctors care more about women’s body? Why are the only options to pump us full of synthetic hormones or to put us into menopause surgically or chemically? And why, oh why, do we have to seek treatment at the same doctor’s office with pregnant women when we’re in pain and likely never going to be able to have kids?
Aubree lays out an alternative treatment plan that includes removing all toxins from your diet and skincare regimen, as well as some more rigorous detox measures. One thing missing from her book was the risks of any of the supplements or detox methods she suggests, since most of them at the minimum can interfere with medications and at the worst cause death. While she suggests using herbal supplements to detox the body, she does not acknowledge that most herbal supplements on the market are in fact tainted with toxins including mercury and purchasing high quality, tested brands is a must.
Aubree, for her lack of a traditional medical education, easily explains how endometriosis impacts more than just your girl organs, and goes through each organ system contributing to or hurt by endometriosis. She also offers solutions on how to fix each of these organs systems using non-Western medicine. I found peace knowing that I had many of the same symptoms as her, and don’t need to run to a urologist, liver expert, kidney expert, dermatologists and 800 other specialists that don’t understand endometriosis impacts the entire body.
I almost died from treatment for my endometriosis. Last Christmas, I had a heart attack from blood clots in my lungs, due to long-term treatment with estrogen from my birth control pills. I was put on blood thinners to prevent further blood clotting and taken off of birth control pills. This led to my endometriosis being excruciatingly painful and bloody daily with multiple ER visits and mental breakdowns, all while on an oxygen tank & walker recovering from the heart attack.
I was put on blood thinners and taken off my birth control pills to prevent blood clots. This made my endometriosis horrific, bleeding and unbearable pain every day. I passed out twice on the side of the rode and woke up in an ambulance each time. My ob/gyn ramped me up to 60 mg of morphine up to 4 times a day before dropping me for being too complicated of a patient. The high doses of morphine barely covered the pain, and the side effects like inability to pee or poop, acid reflux, vomiting, opiate withdrawal in the morning weren’t worth it. After landing in the hospital the 50th time, enough was enough. I detoxed from the morphine and looked for other answers to my endometriosis symptoms. From Pain to Peace With Endo provides solutions for that healthier, happier life I am looking for.
There’s only part of the book I didn’t care for. I skipped the chapter on battling infertility because I don’t want kids (or maybe more truthfully, accepted from an early time that I would not be able to). From Pain to Peace With Endo is worth the read, and if you’re on a budget, the Kindle version is cheaper than your Starbucks latte.
It a lot of great information. I appreciate how it attempts to show that you can be healed in a wholistic way and that because you have Endometriosis it does not mean your life as a woman is over and can't conceive.
Doctors may scare you in that way but I never believed it.
