Dealing with Endometriosis

Endometriosis Advocate

 

 

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. Each year millions of women and girls are impacted by this debilitating disease.  Over 176 million women are fighting a silent war that is upending their lives. It crosses ethnicity/race, age and socio-economic levels.  Endometriosis is hard to detect and often misdiagnosed.

Listen to our interview as she shares insights and strategies to effectively deal with Endometriosis. In the U.S. on average, it takes 10 years from symptom onset to receive an accurate diagnosis of endometriosis.

Some of the top symptoms include:

  1. Severe bleeding during your period (like hemorrhaging)
  2. Lower back and abdominal pain
  3. Vomiting, nausea, and headaches
  4. Prevents you from getting out of bed or doing daily activities

It hits women in the prime of their reproductive lives and impacts women and girls from age 12 to age 60. The symptoms mimic other conditions.

Michelle N. Johnson turned the pain she endured from this disease into a purpose to educate others.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, and Wellness Educator for over 10 years, Michelle N. Johnson fights fiercely to educate, enlighten and empower individuals to become proactive participants in their health and wellness management.

She brings awareness every March to the plight of those with Endometriosis through her annual Fighting Fiercely © educational campaign and expo.  She is a member of the Endometriosis Association, and author of the Endometriosis resource guide: Fighting Fiercely: Unveiling the Unknown about Endometriosis in June of 2015. She states, “I give women a roadmap for what the next steps should be after diagnosis. I share in-depth research on treatment options and make recommendations for specialists.”

As we launch the Shine Now!Magazine, I had the opportunity to interview Melinda Wang, Marketing Extraordinaire, from Love with Food, our sponsor. The founder, Aihui Ong, a former software engineer birthed her company from a place of compassion and purpose.  Ms. Ong took a year to travel after undergoing a painful divorce. While she visited a variety of countries,there remained one constant, poverty among children. Everywhere she traveled she saw hundreds of kids in need.

Upon returning home, her own friends were experiencing difficulties. One with breast cancer and another with a failed food business. Aihui found a new purpose as she sought to assist her friends. She used her ability to be loving with food, coding and knowledge of the internet to create a food-based company that would also help children in need.

Love with Food is a monthly snack subscription service that helps you discover unique, junk-free, all natural or organic snacks at your doorstep. Every box donates at least 1 meal to fight hunger all over America. Over 16 million kids face hunger in the United States.

In honor of the Shine Now!Mag launch, Love with Food is giving away three organic and all natural snack boxes. Enter to win one here: http://gvwy.io/vieufxw

The company offers all-natural and gluten free snacks in three subscription packages, which range from $7.99 to $19.99 a month. Use the code: SHINE to get $5.00 discount on your first box. Over 1 million meals have been donated to food pantries across America.

Watching over the Vision

Watching Over the Vision

By: Angeline Lawrence


The job of a visionary does not end with simply writing down the plan.  The hard part is getting a great team to help execute it.  We can learn how to watch over the vision from some of the great leaders mentioned in the Word of God.

One of the most renowned female leaders of Israel was Deborah, a powerful woman of God that was a judge over the people of Israel.   Deborah charged Barak to fulfill the order given by God to lead an army of men to attack the nation’s enemy. He responded in Judges 4:8, “Barak said to her, “If you go with me, I will go; but if you don’t go with me, I won’t go.”  The most talented people on a team will still need the support of their leaders to get the job done. 

In addition, God watches over every word he speaks to man as stated in Jeremiah 1:12. He positions his spirit-filled leaders to execute his vision and intercede on his behalf. Download the new episode now and listen as I discuss, “Watching over the Vision.”

Leadership under Pressure

Leadership under Pressure

By: Angeline Lawrence

Leadership always comes with a price. Many of us will face adversity as we seek to lead others in the right path. However, our position as leaders is a great opportunity for us to glorify God. We must remember to exude confidence and integrity when we are under pressure.

Listen in today as I discuss the steps to be a leader under pressure. God is our secret weapon and if we stand on his promises, then he will work on our behalf every time. Psalms 37:7 states, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”(NIV) God makes the final decision, so if he elevates us, then he will watch over us and help us win.

Thanks again for joining me on the Shine and Grind Show. I have a special offer for Shine and Grind listeners for the pre-sell of my book, "The Working Women's Guide to Winning: Defeat Satan at His Own Game with Integrity,” which will be published soon. The book will provide more strategies for overcoming life’s challenges such as workplace bullying. Get started now http://bit.ly/10GBGrx and receive a free audio chapter from the book.
