From our mailbag Jen in Texas writes, “Your hoop addiction article hit home because I am definitely a hooping addict, but I haven’t been able to hoop lately due to some abdominal pain. Ten years ago I had surgery for endometriosis, then I had a baby, began hooping, and thought that I was cured….until I started having sudden, intense pain again this summer. It was a shock to me because I was sold on the fact that hooping increased blood flow to the pelvic area, helps with fertility, heals adhesions….etc. I was wondering if you knew of anything more? Any scientific studies on the issue? I’ll be having surgery on the 21st and hope to be back to my regular routine soon.”
Hooping.org: We hope things get better for you soon Jen. While the topic of pelvic health has been tossed around a lot as in hooping opens your pelvic chakras and some claim it sends blood to the pelvic region, though they aren’t doctors, outside of this post on fighting fibroids with hooping, I don’t have much else to tell you. What do you say hoopers, do you have any further insights for Jen?
