BONUS Episode: Living with Endometriosis with Jessica Murnane
The Doctor's Kitchen Podcast
My guest this week is Jessica Murnane – a podcaster, author, and women’s health advocate, who is also one of the most down-to-earth and non-preachy people in the modern wellness space.Jessica’s and I met when were both promoting our first books four years ago. I had only just started speaking about being sober curious publicly and Jess was one of the first people I’d come across who had cut booze out of her life for health reasons – namely as part of the holistic protocol she had embraced to manage her endometriosis. For the unfamiliar, endometriosis is a chronic condition where the lining of the womb starts to grow on other organs of the body. It affects over 170 million people worldwide with sufferers experiencing excruciating pain—but it often goes undiagnosed for decades. It’s also the subject of Jess’s latest book, Know Your Endo – and we get into all the reasons why this is illness is so taboo in our interview.As it pertains to being sober curious, the reality of endo is that there is no quick fix—just like there is no “off switch” when it comes to problematic drinking. We also discuss why many people living with chronic pain – whether physical, mental, or emotional – turn to substances to numb out, and how hard it can be to choose what we know is “good” for us when all we want is relief.Most importantly, we talk about how to advocate for yourself and give yourself what you need – especially when the other people in your life may not understand where you’re experiencing. In the episode we discuss: -Growing up “Straight Edge” and choosing NOT to drink as an act of rebellion.-Receiving mixed messages about alcohol in the home.-Being introduced to booze as part of her career in the culinary world.-What makes alcohol feel special – and why we associate drinking with elevated experiences.-The prevalence and normalization of daily drinking on TV and in the media.-Cutting alcohol out again to help manage her endometriosis. -The mental health impact of living with chronic pain – and why it makes sense to want to numb out.-Using cannabis medicinally – and questioning when this becomes too much of a crutch.-Training your body to appreciate the long-term benefits of holistic healing methods over the instant relief of booze and pills.-How changing your diet can impact your mental and emotional wellbeing.-Why we want to believe in “quick-fixes” and why creating sustainable change always takes time.Learn more about Jessica and her work HERE and get your copy of Know Your Endo HERE.

Endometriosis and Trusting Your Path with Jessica Murnane
The Allsorts Podcast
Do you know what endometriosis is? If you’re like so many of us, you might not...even if you have it yourself (and don’t know it!). Which is why this episode with Jessica Murnane is so important. Jessica suffered from endometriosis for a decade before receiving a diagnosis: her condition took her to the emergency room on multiple occasions and left her in constant, debilitating pain. After living for years with what she thought were just horrible cramps—as well as a serious surgery—she finally saw someone who was able to give her the correct diagnosis. About Jessica Murnane Jessica Murnane is an author, speaker, and creative consultant. She's written two books - the cookbook One Part Plant: A Simple Guide To Eating Real One Meal At A Time and Know Your Endo: An Empowering Guide To Health + Hope With Endometriosis (out April 27th in the US and UK). She's a sought-after speaker and host that's spoken at Apple. SXSW, Wanderlust, and Charleston Wine + Food, among others. Jessica has contributed to/appeared in several magazines and websites including Bon Appétit, Goop, Shape Magazine, The Kitchn, Mind Body Green, and The Coveteur. On this episode, we chat about: What Endometriosis really is and why Jessica is a staunch advocate of symptom awareness The pervasive misinformation and myths surrounding Endometriosis that people constantly encounter Why the pill is not a treatment for endo What self-compassion really means. Hint: it’s not looking in the mirror and telling yourself you’re pretty How to ditch wellness perfectionism and find your own path forward Why eliminating inflammation is impossible and what IS possible Being aware of people telling you “this is what you should eat” and the fear that can arise when you don’t feel good when you start eating that way Why it’s okay to not be in love with cooking, and still do it anyway Getting over the shame of normal bodily functions Why so many people are going through chronic conditions without knowing it Pain catastrophizing. What does a single cramp do to the chain of thoughts in a person without a chronic condition vs. someone who does? How the pain avoidance model can leave people in fear of moving their bodies Jessica’s story is raw, emotional, and brutally honest. Listening to her is a joy and an inspiration for anyone who has ever experienced pain of any sort. So if you’re curious about her journey with endometriosis, or potentially your own, Jessica’s candour and wit are sure to offer hope and relief in knowing that answers are out there—or possibly more profoundly: that others live through these struggles too.
