Praise

“…an integrative guide for anyone who has or cares for someone with this painful and enigmatic disease. Both a memoir and educational review, Samantha has given a voice – and hope – to others by sharing her journey in a brave, straightforward way. The valuable insight, resources, coping strategies and personal triumphs found herein will empower others to take charge of their health, connect to better care and support, and to live well – in spite of endometriosis.”
—Heather C. Guidone, Surgical Program Director, Center for Endometriosis Care

“Many women living with endometriosis will relate to Samantha’s experience as described eloquently in her book: having their pain and symptoms dismissed and misdiagnosed, seeing multiple doctors, and enduring many failed treatments. However, Samantha’s book also offers hope for women who are suffering, in its descriptions of all the current medical and alternative treatments for endometriosis, and in her own personal story of what has worked for her. Samantha’s honest descriptions of her experiences with endometriosis are especially valuable since frank discussions of endometriosis often involve subjects that are still taboo in our society. Samantha encourages women to speak up about their disease and not suffer in silence, to research their options, and to take charge of their health.”
Philippa Bridge-Cook, Ph.D., Executive Director of The Endometriosis Network Canada

“Endometriosis affects an estimated 176 million individuals globally at significant personal and societal costs. Yet despite its vast prevalence, the disease remains underappreciated. Diagnostic delays continue, substandard care is constant, and misinformation surrounding endometriosis abounds. Living with Endometriosis is a book of validation, hope and encouragement: by sharing her personal journey, sound advice and disease education, author Samantha Bowick empowers others to seek out optimal care through early intervention, accurate diagnosis and proper treatments, enabling them to live well in spite of endometriosis.”
Michelle E. Marvel, Founder & Executive Director, Endometriosis Research Center
