You always have to be so careful about what you say right before it goes live. Like in my live, I might not Let’s not talk about too much about vajayjays. Right before. Oh, my God. Isa hi, I’m so happy that you’re here and joining me for this live. And I’ll make sure to kind of share it out after we finish up. And you know, we’ll keep it quick. And we’ll keep it fun. And you have just become such an amazing friend. And I’m so grateful to have you in my life. And so is my mom at this point. Isa, tell me why you do what you do. Why did you become this pelvic floor queen?
Isa Herrera 1:22
Yeah, that’s a great question. I get that question quite a lot. And I think about this quite often. You know, they say that in the moment, the moment of darkness and the absolute moment of darkness. Sometimes we can’t see the light within it, we can’t see how that is going to make us a better a purpose or maybe a better person or even, you know, take us on a different road. And when I was going through all my my pelvic trauma from my birth and everything that happened, I only saw the dark. I know I didn’t see that I was ever going to do this kind of work and bring this information to the world.
I didn’t know that other women, you know, 30 million women are suffering with this. I think it’s more, I thought I was alone. I thought that, and I was a shame. And I was embarrassed. And I was like, Here I am this big time therapists and I couldn’t even heal myself in the beginning. And so I this whole thing, I do it because I know what it is to suffer. I know what it is not to feel right. I know what it is to feel broken. I know what it is not to feel deeply connected to your partner. I know what it feels like to go through the day and all you feel is pain and not having the answers. So I do it because this darkness that I went through really showed me that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.
And that we hold it in a key to our own healing. And that all we need sometimes is a little bit of guidance and a little bit of like someone to help us turn that key. Right? But as women as we’re so indoctrinated into thinking that it’s all my fault that I don’t feel right because there’s something wrong with me. But that’s not true.
The truth is that the pain and the leaky and whatever women you know, and the pelvic organ prolapse is there as your body is messaging you, your body’s telling you, hey, listen, pay attention to me, show me how you’re going to love me again. And then you take the road from there, right? And you have to go, you have to be very courageous, because it is such a taboo topic. And it is so embedded and so intertwined with the way we feel about ourselves and it touches our self worth very deeply. And sometimes I find that women with pelvic floor dysfunction, I mean, I’ve treated over 15,000 women they feel like there’s no way out because the medical system has let them down the doctor ratio is alive and well, right?
The media tells women to suck it up and normalizes our pain, or tells us that our pain is not important that we should continue to nurture everyone and forget about ourselves. So long story short, I do what I do because I know what it is to hurt and I know what it is to come back strong and to conquer those inner demons and feel like yeah, okay, thank you. Thank you for showing me that, because now I have an opportunity, an opportunity for myself.
So I think that’s why I do what I do. It has always been my mission. My mission is to help a million women heal from pelvic floor dysfunction. I do that through my online programs and my master classes and there’s nothing that gives me more incredible joy and this inner tickling in my heart. When I see a woman, tell me and she’ll email me and will reach out to me and say, Hey, listen, thank you so much. Thank you because I thought I was the only one. And now I know that there’s hope. Right?
Andrea Duchonovic 5:14
I mean, it’s, you know, Isa, especially when it comes to us woman, what you said, and you and I had such an amazing conversation when I was launching my masterclass about pelvic floor and pain and self care. First of all, it’s a topic that not every woman wants to talk about. And she keeps to herself. And like you said, I think the medical system has let us down, right?
How many times did I go to a doctor about any sort of issues? And the answer was always Oh, that’s normal. Or you’re just going through puberty. Oh, you’re just now in your 30s Oh, period. cramps are normal. Oh, lower back pain is normal. Oh, pain during sex. That’s normal. Try some lube. I mean that’s what we’re getting and it’s so unfortunate, but let’s step back. I mean, ladies, we’re gonna get into pelvic floor we’re gonna get into all of it, the leaking, the pain, all that good stuff.
But before we do that, I think you and I always touch on self care, the importance of self care and holy crap that I not realize how important self care was, until I launched my masterclass and I’ve had so much going on, I’m going oh my god, I’m launching a breaking up with exhaustion masterclass that I want me to take my own masterclass when the masterclass is over, because I’m so exhausted and you’re like, what? But like you said, We teach women, the stuff that we go through, right?
It’s our life stories and our trial and errors that allow us to do what we do today. So it’s beautiful in a weird way. So let’s go back to self care, because it does start there. Why is it so important for us Superwoman, that freaking do it all, and put everybody else before ourselves? Like, what’s your take on that?
Isa Herrera 6:54
I think my take on self care is that radical self care is an act of great love for yourself. The problem that I see with women and with society in general, is that we suffer from Busy Bee syndrome. We are busy as bees. And we, and it’s not our fault. You know, I mean, it’s the nature of what’s happening in the world right now. But what happens with that, is that we feel that we need to put our kids first we need to put our jobs First, we need to put our husbands first, sometimes we even been put out dog before us, right?
Andrea Duchonovic 7:34
Yes. Let’s be honest.
Isa Herrera 7:39
Take the dog for a walk, or God forbid, you know, thank God, you’re going and taking the dog for a walk, that means you’re walking too. But what happens is that we’ve started to put everyone in front of us and I think, is because as a collective, there’s been so much collective trauma that women have gone through, and everything with the me too movement and the time’s up movement as well, that we start to feel that we’re not worth it. Or worse than that we’re afraid of what could happen if we take this journey, or we’re afraid that we take this journey and it would fail.
So I have this thing that women go through fight, flight, or freeze. And I think right now with everything that’s happening in the world, women stay like in suspended animation trying to figure this out, trying to navigate the system, trying to navigate this new, better normal, and we don’t know what to do to care for ourselves. But if we are running on empty, if our cup is empty, if we’re giving it away to all the energy vampires in our lives, and they’re sucking us dry, then at the end of the day, all the things that you want to do for someone else, it’s impossible to do them. And how we feel about ourselves is really, really related to how we feel deep inside as women, and how we feel about the most intimate parts of our bodies, which is the pelvic floor. And sometimes, you know, with the brainwashing that’s been going on with the media for so long, playing the head game on us, thinking that there’s a magic bullet, or let me give you the gimmick, do this one thing and I’m going to cure your incontinence. And it’s really nothing but bullcrap. Because it doesn’t work that way.
The body’s messaging you, you take action, the body wants to heal, and we have to go back to trusting the power of self healing, that our bodies are so powerful, and so incredible that when you give it the medicine that it needs, whether it be a kegel whether it be food, whether it be what or whatever it is, it’s a catalyst. And then what happens is that you start to to feel better. But the thing is, the most important thing about self care is actually keeping your word. What I find is that we say we’re going to do something, but we don’t do it. So everybody says, so what’s the magic, Isa? What’s the recipe? What? Give me the recipe Isa.
I think that the recipe starts, with just keeping our word to ourselves, like we would keep our word. And we would show up for our kid, we show up for our girlfriends, we show for whatever. But when it comes to showing up for ourselves, there’s still that inner battle. And that inner battle, I believe, comes from 1000s and 1000s of years of hurting, of women being abused, women being traumatized. Women being told that they’re less and women, like you said, being belittled, and being told by their physicians that their pain is in their head, women being told this is a normal part of aging, suck it up, or you’re going through menopause. Oh, yeah, that’s okay. Suck that up too. And then you don’t know what to believe.
Because, you know, intuitively, that something’s not right. But yet everyone around you, everyone external to you is saying, no, it’s okay to be that way. But you know, it’s not, because you know, it’s hurting you deep down inside. So, self care has to do also, I believe, with intuition. I mean, we cannot ignore as women the power of intuition, and our inner guidance, and what do we do, we were afraid to shine, many of us are afraid to shine.
Do we feel like if we shine, and right now more than ever, we need to shine, we need to show up as ourselves, you know, we can’t hide anymore. And we’re afraid to shine because somebody might think that we’re stuck up or that we’re this and that. So we dim our lights, we settle for less. Because we don’t think that there could be a more beautiful future for us moving forward. So I think that that’s what self care is about. It’s really about keeping your word, listening to your intuition, and then just don’t overwhelm yourself. For the love of God take small steps. Like when I feel overwhelmed, and it happens to me, too. I’m not perfect. You know, I live an imperfect life, which is probably a good thing. And I find myself like, Oh, well, what am I gonna do today? Oh, my God, I can’t. What do I do? I can’t do this.
Andrea Duchonovic 12:23
That’s when you and I text Oh, my god, there’s just so much right? But we tell each other, we have to step back. And we have to just do one thing at a time, one thing at a time, and you’re so right, us woman was so intuitive. We’re so intuitive. And we know. I mean, the years and years and years that I was told how I felt was normal. And I just knew there’s no way, especially when you see the woman that don’t have as many issues which bless their hearts. And they’re doing wonderful. And you’re like, that’s the way that life should be.
I mean, something’s off, right? And unfortunately, it’s just such a confusing time, like you said, and you go on Dr. Google, and there’s a gazillion answers to every single thing that you put in there. So it is hard, and that’s my passion of bringing the good only the good stuff, the good products and the good services and the good healers, like yourself, to the woman in this world, so they don’t have to go and deal with the bullcrap. All out there. So self care, so we know we have to put ourselves first.
Ladies, if you’re feeling any of this stuff in your pelvic floor in your lower back, and we’ll get into this, you know, pay attention, there is a better answer. So tell me about the pelvic floor. What the heck is it for the people who don’t know. Because there’s women that don’t know, I actually never thought about the pelvic floor until I met you. I’m like, Huh, let me look into this. And then I realized, Oh, my gosh, I’m one of those women. I’m one of the women that had, there’s something going on there. And you were just like such a light in my world. Because I’m like, Okay, now I know what the heck to do with the stuff that I thought was maybe normal. So what is the pelvic floor? Why should we care for it?
Isa Herrera 14:03
I think the pelvic floor when we think about it, it’s an energetic center. It’s the middle of our bodies. And it houses our most intimate areas, Our Lady parts, our bladder, our uterus, our rectums. And these are little areas that we tend not to think about, because why should we think about them? Because it’s so taboo.
So the pelvic floor is what I believe the most important muscles in the female body and that the vulva vaginal rectal muscles. But the thing that I find is that everybody thinks that we’re just a hole and then that’s the only focus and we forget that these muscles are so wise. I mean, when they built us, they built us in such a magnificent way. The female body is beautiful. Look at it, it can create a baby. You know what I mean?
I mean, hello. Isn’t it crazy? I mean think about that. Like we can make a baby you know? And we can make an egg every month and these things happen. But the pelvic floor muscles, because it has 17 meridian lines that travel through it, because it’s the center of the body. It’s connected to the core, it’s connected to the hips, it’s connected to the butt it’s connected to the front of your hips and even to your feet. So for me, the pelvic floor starts at the bottom of the ribs, to the top of the bottom of the hips. And so everybody’s like, why, how is that the pelvic floor because it is so connected to the fascial system is connected through the nerves, the blood supply the lymphatics, and it has a way, and in such wisdom, and that’s why they call it the first chakra is that it has wisdom and it can communicate and tell you about yourself.
Because if something is not right down there, I bet you your whole life is off. My life was off. I just felt like What the hell’s going on? everywhere, right? No one, no one had answers for me. And I had to go on the on the doctor roadshow, I went on the doctor roadshow. And then I discovered for myself what was happening, I applied to the science and the research to it. So it became easier, because I understood, but these muscles are intelligent, they respond to emotion, they response to stress, so that they have a cycle, spiritual component to them.
They’re not purely physical because as women, we’re not as humans, we’re not just this physical container, I mean, you may want to think, hey, there’s nothing outside of me. And that’s fine. But still, it is tied up to our emotions. So the pelvic floor is very deep, very deep, and it has a lot of muscles in there. And it’s also the center of our pleasure and our joy, and the center of us feeling safe in the world. And when it’s been violated, when things that have been happening to it and there’s pain, women don’t feel that joy, they’re guarded.
There’s actually research about this, and then they tense up more. So they get more pain, right? Or they have so much stress. And these muscles, they’re like boom. And they contract and because they’re muscles, and when a woman doesn’t feel safe. When a woman doesn’t feel connected, then of course, the body’s gonna do what it’s gonna do to protect a spasm, I mean, that’s natural. Just like when you get a spasm in your neck, you can get one down there as well, from the stress and the anxiety. And I know now with this whole thing that’s happening in the world, I’m seeing more and more women coming in more with pain, pain that leads to weakness, and then leads to leaking. So it’s very complex.
Andrea Duchonovic 15:52
There are a lot of tense vaginas out there right now.
Isa Herrera 17:45
Every day, I gotta constantly focus and be like, just open up, relax, receive, right? Because, you know, our tendency is to think that we can do it all on our own, that we don’t need help. So we don’t ask for help, because maybe we feel like we don’t need it, or we feel like we can handle it on our own.
But right now, no one should be healing alone. And we’re finding, and I’m finding through my online programs and school, that women are home, they’re trapped, they don’t know what to do. And the thing is, there is no better time than right now to heal, to heal whatever is going on. But you need to heal, your vitality, your vibrance the place where you connect with love, the place that gives you orgasms the place that gives you pleasure, the place that makes you feel that confidence. And so for me, all women, whether they have pain, or leaking or whatever. And if you’re healthy, well good for you, then you should maintain that.
Because as we go through the life changes, things happen, because these muscles are what? They respond to hormone levels as well. So they respond during the cycle, more women have pain with their cycle, then women have a baby and there’s trauma to the pelvis. And then after that we go into pre menopause that can be dryness. And then menopause is typically leaking and prolapse because the muscles have lost their vitality and power and strength. So they can’t hold anything up. Which makes sense, right? Because if you think about it, as you’re going through life changes, you want to have a life that supports you. So if you’re prolapsing, then we need to look at the pelvic floor, then we need to look to look at what’s happening in your life as well. You need to get support.
Andrea Duchonovic 19:32
Of course. So when you talk about pain, kind of let’s go back to pain. So what I learned from you is what I didn’t know before that lower back pain also could be a big pelvic problem. So let’s talk about like pain during sex, or any type of other pain you’re feeling in that area or lower back pain. What are the different signs or different things to pick up for women to know Oh, that could be related to my pelvic floor, like what are the things that we’re looking for?
Isa Herrera 19:58
Well, definitely sad. low back pain are big triggers for the pelvic floor, what I find the literature support says is that about 96% of women with low back pain also have some kind of pelvic floor issue or dysfunction. So any kind of pain in that central area whether it being in the glutes, in the belly or whether there’s a hysterectomy scar, or myomectomy scar or laparoscopic scar is going to be a trigger for pain. Now pain with intimacy is sometimes poof, poof, by the ending.
Now I can just have a glass of wine, use more lube. But the reality is that we have one out of three, one of the three, which is crazy, Women in the United States suffering from chronic pelvic pain in their private parts, and they don’t feel like anyone is helping them. And they’re being offered Botox injections, they’re being offered, different kinds of antidepressants, different kinds of neuronal suppresses Nervous System depressants.
To heal them, when in reality, we always must go to the organic, the root cause of things. And typically, it’s the pelvic floor muscles, of course, you got to check yourself out. But if you have pelvic pain, pain with intimacy, typically, you’re going to be helped quite dramatically if you do work, self care on this particular body part. And sometimes it’s too painful to touch down there. So that’s why you got to make those hyper connections, which is where I come in, and show you how to make the hyper connections so that you can release the pelvic floor without actually touching it. Because if there’s a lot of pain there, a lot of women get really scared.
It’s a scary thing. You got pain. And then sometimes women go through intimacy, they have intimacy with their partner, even though it hurts, and then that creates more micro trauma. So I think the intimacy is a big thing, pain with intimacy, but even any kind of discomfort is a red flag for me. When you’re being in this interconnected relationship with intimacy, and it should never be overlooked, because it doesn’t go away. It just gets worse.
Andrea Duchonovic 22:12
I was going to say it’s something that just keeps building on and gets worse and worse. And then think about the disconnection with your partner and yourself. If that goes on for years, and years and years
Isa Herrera 22:21
Yeah. And that happened to me, because I mean, when I first had my pain, my husband and I were on the brink of divorce. Because I mean, the pain consumed to me, then I couldn’t be intimate. And he’s a great guy, and I love him. And you know, but it was really hard for us. Because outside I looked normal. It’s like when you’re injured, and you have a cast. Everybody knows Oh, she’s injured. Oh, give us some sympathy. But when you have this issue right here, no one can see it. Most people don’t even believe you have it. It’s just like that she’s making this shit up. Because she doesn’t want to. You know, I had a doctor tell me, you don’t love your husband enough.
Andrea Duchonovic 23:04
Wow. And I’m sure so many women have that and talk about a smack in the face. I mean, come on,
Isa Herrera 23:13
Ignorant. I call them ignorant, they’re very ignorant. And I’m a firm believer, if I don’t know something. I’m going to tell you I don’t know. I don’t know, own up to it. I’m not gonna say, hey, simply go home and do a bunch of kegels. Especially if you have pelvic pain, you shouldn’t be doing kegels. And then you hurt yourself or the muscle’s too tight already. Why would you want to tighten that, doesn’t make any sense. But a lot of doctors, their only recommendation is a pill or surgery, or do kegels or they ignore you. And they say that it’s all in your head and they give you an antidepressant.
Women don’t need to hear that anymore. And if a physician finds himself in the place where they don’t know enough about how to make this recommendation, then this is the moment to be the hero. This is the moment, man it’s right there for you. Just capture it and say, I don’t know. Let me research. Let me find someone who can help you.
Andrea Duchonovic 24:07
Let me call Isa Herrera and call it a day. Come on.
Isa Herrera 24:13
Or at least say I don’t know. But don’t put them on medications that we know are going to have more side effects than the pelvic pain that they already have. And then they get constipated and they get more pain, then they get depressed and they have more pain, more anxiety. These are the dirty side effects of these drugs. I’m a natural, holistic practitioner. One of my core values is non pharmaceutical interventions. If you need that later on, then that’s something else. But at the beginning.
My job is to awaken the doctor within you to awaken your healer so that you know that you got this. And then once you open that door to the cage that they have put us in then they become this, you get a little taste of what it feels to feel good. And then you want more of it.
Andrea Duchonovic 25:05
Yeah. And I love the way you explain everything because I’ve been through your course and I’ve looked at your work and attended your free master classes where there’s always something new to learn. And I love it how simple you make it, you know, it’s not this difficult 10 year process that you need to go through, you know, it’s simple at home strategies that you could do. And we’ll talk about your free masterclass soon. But let’s get into one other big thing.
Because when I started opening up about this and just spoke to my clients about my friends and family, I was blown away by how many people had this. But if you don’t talk about it, you don’t know it. It’s like, I remember when I decided that my dream car was a Jeep Wrangler. And when I decided that all the sudden Jeep Wranglers were everywhere, you know, you start paying attention to it. So once I knew, oh, my God, this is an actual problem that could be fixed, outside of which of the traditional doctor says that I found so many women who have it.
And like you said, you do too. So let’s talk about leaking. And it’s such an uncomfortable subject and an embarrassing subject to a lot of women. But oh my gosh, when I open up this can of worms, the amount of woman that said, Oh, yeah, like I sneeze, and I pee, I laugh and I pee or after birth, I started squirting in my pants. What the heck is that all about, Isa?
Isa Herrera 26:23
That’s a great question. And I’m so grateful that you’re so honest. And you bring your experience to this. It touches my heart really does touch my heart. I think that it’s been normalized. I mean, all you got to do is look at the depends market out there. Billions of dollars and making billions, billions of dollars on women’s backs, normalizing it and saying, Don’t worry, put a bandaid on it. And then this is how you’re going to live for the rest of your life. Very expensive. By the way, I just went to the aisle, where they had all the panty liners and I couldn’t believe how expensive those things were actually enrolling in my program is gonna be cheaper than that.
When I thought about that, wow, that’s crazy. And women are told that this is a normal part of motherhood, that this is a normal part of aging. And what’s really shocking is that 37% of collegiate athletes, these are women in 20 something years, they leak. Yeah, they leak and either they’re leaking, or, you know, you’re leaking. And the thing is, their coaches don’t understand how to work with a woman’s body. And this is the thing, we have people out there who don’t understand female anatomy, whose exercises are not engineered or designed for the female body, especially an older woman’s body, which is the people that you know, are attracted to me.
But when we give exercises out, when we give recommendations, we have to stop normalizing this. Even the media normalizes that, how many times do you see the panties and see she’s jumping in the commercials. It’s like, really? this is where we got to, or they say, Hey, take this medication. So you can suppress your urge to go to the bathroom. Right? And it doesn’t really work. Then it has other side effects. So I mean, I don’t watch TV at all. But every once in a while I’ll turn it on.
Just look at what’s happening with Big Pharma and what’s being recommended to women. And I’m actually shocked at how it’s just normalized all. You had a baby, of course, you’re going to pee your pants, or your menopause, or you’re going to be normal. You’re an athlete? Oh, yeah, don’t worry, just suck it up and keep peeing on yourself. And then what happens is, they age really bad. They end up in old age homes, where they’re not independent, because the one criteria that makes you independent, is being able to go to and from the bathroom by yourself and not wetting your pants.
Andrea Duchonovic 29:04
Wow. Well guess what about the meshes and the tapes and the surgeries? I mean, you know I have a whole personal experience with that which no, get into who and I mean, you and I spoke so much about that. And what pissed me off the most was this family member who had the surgery.
They didn’t even know what she was getting herself into. It was never explained to her. It was told to her and then I joined like the mesh tape, Facebook groups and things like that, and the horror stories. And we’re almost out of time. And we could go another five hours about this. But just really quickly, you know, if you’re a woman that has had the surgery or is considering it. I mean, the fact that my family member was told this is the only way and millions of women get it or hundreds of 1000s whatever the number is, you’ll be fine. And then to see where the person is today. 1015 years later, it absolutely breaks my heart
Isa Herrera 29:59
It’s terrible. You know what the problem is? There’s no informed consent, women have to insist on informed consent, pro versus con, risk versus benefit. And they have to ask for an alternative. But these doctors, what they make it sound like you’re going to the candy store, you’re going to pick up some candy, then you’re going to have outpatient operation, boom, boom, boom, you’re going to be healed. But there’s no informed consent. And then the woman I can’t tell you how many mesh surgeries, the tapping, how many women 1000s of women I treated, that is just a disaster. So there has to be an awakening in female medicine, first of all, and I’m hoping and that’s coming, it’s getting better. So I have hope. But we as women need to know that there are no quick fixes.
And if anybody offers you that offers you a gimmick, you need to turn around and say hit the road Jack. Because, honestly, I can’t tell you how many times I went to a doctor. He said, Don’t worry, let me just inject this into your vagina. And you’re going to feel better. You’re not going to have any pain. I was desperate. As desperate as that. I was as desperate as everybody else out there. You know what I did? Yeah, I did it. Did I ask for informed consent?
No, because I didn’t know I had a choice. I didn’t know there was an alternative. I didn’t know there was another way out. But now we know because when we know better, then we can do better. And when we trust ourselves, then we’re going to do even better because first is me. Then is everybody else. Because we have to shine we have to shine our light. You have to show up as ourselves now we can’t hide anymore. There’s no more hiding. Yep, there’s no more swallowing tears.
Andrea Duchonovic 31:52
And that’s my number one thing there’s always an answer. And the longer it takes you to find it, the more frustrating it is. And you want to give up and you just want to follow what everybody else is doing. And I know that, you know that, the people that I talk to all the time know that. But you know, we’re here to tell you just keep researching there’s a better answer. And you are again, my pelvic floor queen. Can we just, as we wrap this up? You are launching a another masterclass, you’re going to be giving us a ton of education over five days, tell us a little bit.
Isa Herrera 32:23
For three days with an encore. It’s what I do every year, I bring the pelvic health information to the world. I give you my heart and my soul, all evidence based clinically based information, then I stay around to the end why I do crazy Q&As. Like sometimes I can go for two hours. I don’t even know how I do it. Think I’ve got it strong enough because then I don’t I don’t pee within four hours. What if I gotta pee in the middle of it. And so then I do the live Q and A’s.
And then of course for those who want to go deeper, who knows those who really want to take back their queendom and reclaim the vitality. I’m going to open up my pelvic healing program. And you can join me at the end for that. But the most important thing is to show up live to the masterclass so that you can get the help that you need. And then we have 1000s of 1000s of women come and learn and discover.
There’s beautiful bonuses when you sign up as well. I like to keep it interesting, I’d like to keep it real. And it’s my way of doing what I promised God that I was going to do, you just help to raise the divine energy to help raise women up and to help women, you know, awaken their inner doctor. Because that’s it. That’s all we need right now. We don’t need to say, hey, let me go outsource my vagina to somebody.

And you give away so much amazing. And every time I see you do these, you know, like mini echo and kind of these mini master classes because there’s just so much value, especially with the q&a. So I’m going to put the link below the video and I’ll be sharing it on all my pages so they could sign up for free. And the biggest thing is, like you said, show up, you show up for your children.
You show up for your family, you show up for your work. Show up for yourself. right but so before I let you go there’s a question that came through. I wanted to ask you can I read this real quick?

Kristin wrote, how does endometriosis, pcos scars and numbness years after abdominal and low back surgeries play a role especially when periods suddenly stopped over eight months ago. My doctor refused to check my hormones other than testosterone to see if I’m pre menopausal at 39.
Isa Herrera 34:43
So I think that if you’ve had that much, those kinds of different physical challenges like endometriosis, pcos and scar, you definitely need to be working in the pelvic floor, you need to be working on the scar tissue. You need to rehab the core. Now, if your period has suddenly stopped, well, you need to go and see somebody who I believe will be more open to having a discussion with you.
A doctor is only going to test testosterone, it is not going to be enough for him to get the information that he needs. As we both know, there’s a whole panel that needs to be done. And I think Andrea, you could probably help with her finding somebody. But the most important thing is to work with somebody who fits in alignment with you, not somebody is going to give you top down medicine is going to tell you I’m sorry, you lost your period.
I’m going to test your testosterone and then that’s all we’re gonna do and then it’s going to send you on your way home without real answers. Any woman who has endometriosis needs to be in this masterclass, women who have endometriosis typically have pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction. And this pain can be helped by working on the pelvic floor by working on the abdominal area. So I mean it’s really sad to hear this but there’s ways to heal yourself. And sometimes you got to kiss a lot of frogs before you get to the prince. That’s how I feel about the doctor Rocio
Andrea Duchonovic 36:11
like a doctor roadie over here, but yeah, Kristin, will get you the link to sign up, you know, first step is showing up and getting more educated. And Isa, Thank you. Kristin, I can help you find a great expert together with e sizing. It’s way beyond your testosterone. So you need to keep digging and get those answers. But Isa, is there anything else you want to leave with?
We’ll leave the link to your amazing masterclass, I’ll definitely be there. Because I feel like I pick up something else all the time, especially with the q&a is you know, so many things come in and you’re like, Oh, yeah, there’s a cool questions, and you know, answer to a question I didn’t think about. So anything else you want to leave the viewers off with. And thank you so much for being here.
Isa Herrera 36:49
Oh, thank you for inviting me. I’m so grateful. Thank you so much. I really am really honored that I can share this information. I think the most important thing that women need to know right now is that you hold the key. No one’s gonna come and save you. You save yourself. You become the heroine of your own story. And you get the knowledge that you need to make that happen and to trust yourself. Because I think that a lot of this has to do with lack of trust, when we trust ourselves. And we do the work and we’re not afraid. Then magic happens.
Andrea Duchonovic 37:27
I love it. I love it. I love Isa. And I love you and again, we’ll put all the links below and thank you for being here.
Isa Herrera 37:31
