It’s not the first time Itsines has felt empowered to help other women take care of themselves; It also prompted her to open up about her own private battle with endometriosis, in the hopes of encouraging other women to prioritize their health when something goes wrong.

Itsines was diagnosed with endometriosis in her 20s and has since had two surgeries to manage the condition. Itsines previously expressed how relieved she was to find out she could get pregnant while suffering from endometriosis, and how grateful she was to her body for supporting her despite her struggles with endometriosis.
