Change of program at the beginning of the afternoon for “It starts today”, France 2 would have preferred to deprogram the song entitled “Healing by freeing yourself from the wounds of our ancestorsIt must be said that the publication, a few days earlier, of an excerpt from the program on social networks caused a lot of commotion among women with endometriosis and the associations involved.
A Psychogenealogical Approach
“There is a debt that you have inherited” […] you inherited from this grandmother or great-grandmother who had children, who lost children. And endometriosis, for all who listen to us, it’s a message from our bodies telling us that there used to be a lot of suffering from a person who associated the words “childhood” and “death”. It doesn’t go together, there’s guilt, there’s grief, that’s what we have to liberate,” explains Nathalie Calestrémé in the clip that is supposed to promote the show.
Thus, the personal development specialist gave a psychogenealogical statement to a patient, the latter specifying that she had already been told that “endometriosis was first a disease of self-sabotage”.
“Do you find it annoying that only female diseases are addressed through psychotherapy? We act so that endometriosis is taken seriously, not to send women to psychiatrists! “, the ENDOmind association replied on Twitter.
The clip was quickly removed from the show’s social networks, but this channel kicking back wasn’t enough to extinguish the bad buzz.
“Speech of this kind is misleading for a physical illness that can be serious,” denounced AAERS, a research collective for adenomyosis and endometriosis. To then specify that the trauma heritability hypothesis “is based on very few studies and also has methodological flaws”.
What is endometriosis?
As a reminder, endometriosis is a chronic gynecological disease that affects approximately 10% of women. It is characterized by the development of a uterine lining, the endometrium, outside the uterus. These tissues colonize other neighboring organs, but will continue to be affected by hormonal changes during each menstrual cycle. Since they cannot be eliminated through menstruation, they cause a local inflammatory response.
Diagnosis is often late, on average 7 years, and patients with endometriosis suffer from misdiagnosis leading to inappropriate treatment of their symptoms or even aggravation of the disease.

“What kind of porridge is this on France 2? Honestly, there is enough quackery online not to drive anyone into public service. Endometriosis caused by our ancestors’ miscarriage guilt? Seriously? University of Paris-Diderot, specialist in conspiracy theories and “fake news”.
Marie-Rose Galès, author of the book Endometriosis my lovecalls for its part a “sectarian drift” and trusts the Miviludes (inter-ministerial mission of vigilance and fight against sectarian urges) and Arcom (the former CSA) to demand the non-broadcasting of the program.
Faced with these reports, France 2 sent the complainants a message this Monday afternoon stating that the station “has decided to deprogram this programme”. †Why did they choose a different way of life?” is the themed broadcast instead.
Deprogram for sure, but only for this D-day, exactly the Parisian† Contacted by our colleagues, the France Télévisions group effectively ensures that it “allows itself time to rework the program with the production”, but does not therefore abandon any broadcast.
