Can You Heal From Endometriosis?

A few years back I was sitting in an Iridology class and a lady at the front said, “I’ve had endometriosis twice but recovered.” At the time, I thought this was ridiculous, having suffered with it for about 3 years at this point I couldn’t understand how she could have truly had endometriosis and recovered…
