• How to deal with Chronic (Pelvic) Pain

    Many of the women I help struggle with dealing with their condition, to the point that they drive themselves crazy and give up all hope (I’ve been there plenty of times). There is hope, there’s plenty of hope. And it all starts with you. You are the leader of your life, of your health, and you decide how much you want to prioritize to feel good instead of sitting in your shitty feelings, even though some days it feels AMAZING to sit in those feelings, and throw yourself a pity party🥳 But at some point you gotta pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and take a look at what you…

  • 3 exercises to release pelvic floor muscles

    Hi you lovely LS ladies (and any other ladies along for the ride),In yesterday’s Instagram post I posted a short video of me doing some exercises to release the hips, you can check out that video here. Everyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love yoga and movement, anything to make my body feel better and lighter. Many of us suffering from Lichen Sclerosus, Vulvodynia or Endometriosis, just to mention a few, also suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction. Often it is more than just having tight pelvic floor muscles, it can also include tight low back muscles, thigh muscles (inner and outer), hip muscles, glutes. Which can result in…

  • 3 ways to decrease your stress levels

    I sent out an email to my fellow LS-ladies a while back and it was very popular so I figured I’d share it in a post for the rest of you because it think it’s applicable to any sort of pain we might be dealing with.   I don’t know about you but stress has a huuuge impact on my Lichen Sclerosus and it’s role in my life. As we all probably know is that stress not only creates oxidative stress in the body, an imbalance in our system that is damaging to our cells that can lead to dis-ease, depression, chronic fatigue, and in worst case case scenario: cancer,…

  • Ain’t nothing simpler than veggie tomato sauce

    Making a tomato based sauce is something that always comes first to mind when I don’t know what to make. I just go through the fridge to see what I can come across, and then I basically just through everything together in a pan! And yesterday I made a really yummy one that I wanted to share with you, just in case you’re out of imagination today, next week or for the rest of the year! A great way to increase your veggie and fibre intake, and we want all of that in our bodies – like I mention in the Well-being for Lichen Sclerosus Info-graphic! If you don’t have…

  • Walk like you love your body

    I often hear people say ”I’m wearing this tracking device, fancy thing, to get to 10 000 steps a day”, which I think is great – then they continue their thought with ”Because I need to lose weight” or ”Because I eat too much of this or that.” If you just stop for a second and pretend like your weight isn’t defying you (because it’s not) and that you are as much worthy as any other woman or man that you are comparing your body to (because you are) – Do you know how much you benefit from walking and physical activity? Your bones will benefit from it (less physical…

  • Where do you get your nutrition information from?

    Winter break – which means that I’m done with half my bachelor degree. As you all know I am studying nutrition, and as you all also know is that there is nutrition information everywhere. And I mean absolutely EVERYWHERE! And why do we blindly trust everything we read/hear about nutrition? We’re not even looking at the facts, we just ingest whatever someone, who we think might know Something about nutrition, says. How many of you haven’t looked up online to see what a celebrity eats? I cannot remember how many times I’ve done this. And it’s all from that totally impressive yoga nerd to Blake Lively. Or that one celebrity that wrote…
