About the author

Alice Williams, visionary CEO of Ovira, was diagnosed with endometriosis at 21. Medical professionals had limited knowledge about the condition then, prescribing painkillers, the contraceptive pill, and labeling her with chronic fatigue and depression. Nothing helped despite her attempts with supplements, saunas, mindfulness, and more. Determined to find an alternative, she delved into research and discovered electrotherapy—a breakthrough. Years later, she founded Ovira, providing drug-free pain relief to tens of thousands of warriors who, like her, suffered in silence.
