WHEN PAIN TURNS TO PASSION
FemEvolve magazine started due to founder Christina Paruag’s experiences with a chronic condition called endometriosis. She was bed-ridden for almost three weeks every month until she underwent a laparoscopic surgery to be diagnosed. After her surgery, her symptoms improved, however she was still in quite debilitating pain. There were such limited resources for women with endometriosis, leading to so much confusion. Tremendous pain overcame her body on an almost daily basis and many doctors claimed they could only provide limited treatment options. The fight against this condition lead to her passion for women’s health and wellness. To read more about endometriosis and her experience, check out her interview with easy period here.
In September of 2016, after the condition began to affect her kidney function, Christina decided to start a scientific-based health magazine for women. Using her background in medical physics and research related experience, FemEvolve began, as a magazine that challenges taboo topics while providing researched content that is broken down into actionable steps. This magazine pushes the boundaries of what real, researched information is, while incorporating authentic and true experiences women have faced.
Our team is composed of professionals from different health, wellness and personal development fields. It’s written by real people with real experiences.
FemEvolve aims to leave each woman reading it to feel empowered, in control of their health and stress and confident in both their inner and outer beauty and abilities.
