Natural Care for Endometriosis

Endometriosis, is a chronic condition that affects up to 10% of women. Below will

see natural cures for endometriosis, its causes and official therapies.

 

Endometriosis is a chronic disease, which begins by the presence of uterus inner

wall tissue, that is, the endometrium. It's common in women suffering from

irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

 

Endometrium is present in other organs like ovaries, fallopian tubes, peritoneum,

vagina, bowel. This causes internal bleeding, chronic inflammation and scar tissue,

adhesions and infertility.

 

Endometriosis is often painful to point of becoming disabling. Starts with chronic

pelvic pain, especially during menstrual cycle or ovulation, pain on evacuation,

pain during sexual or post-coital act.

 

Cause of endometriosis is retrograde menstruation. That is, during menstruation,

small parts of endometrial tissue would move in opposite direction in fallopian

tubes and then implant themselves in abdomen or, in any case, outside uterine

cavity.

 

Retrograde menstruation is moderately present in all women, but only in some

of them endometrial tissue is able to grow and take root.

 

Stress and excessive physical fatigue contribute to its development. Natural

solutions have a positive effect on endometriosis by reducing the factors that

cause it.

 

At this point we need talk about mast cells.

 

Mast cell is one of most important protagonists of immune and inflammatory

response. Inside there are hundreds of vesicles that contain many substances.

 

When mast cell is called upon to operate to deal with tissue damage

(from infection or trauma), these vesicles "degranulate". Hence, release their

substances and thereby protect and heal surrounding tissue, promoting its

healing.

 

If mast cell becomes overactive, and this happens for its metabolic dysregulation,

quantities of substances released are much higher than normal. They end up being

harmful: inflammation and pain, from acute, become chronic.

 

Inflammation mediators (bradykinin, vasoactive factors, histamine, substance P,

serotonin) and neurotrophic substances like nerve growth factor (NGF) are released

in excess. The first cause oxidative damage from free radicals. While NGF causes

multiplication of nerve endings, resulting in hypersensitivity to painful stimuli

(hyperalgesia) and burning perception of tactile sensations (allodynia). This occurs

in endometriosis. Natural remedies for endometriosis achieve goal of normalizing

metabolic alterations of mast cells, cause of this illness.

 

Current therapies involve use of NSAIDs for pain therapy (but they are little or

not effective as they only antagonize some biochemical mediators). Or a reduction

in circulating estrogen is performed to slow development of endometriosis, thus

causing an artificial menopause.

 

However, the side effects of menopause follow: hot flashes, weight gain, night

sweats, irritability, loss of calcium.

 

Combined estrogen-progestins are still used (contraceptive pill, progesterone)

which can give as side effects: nausea, headache, vaginal dryness, decreased

sexual desire.

 

Or therapies with androgens, capable of antagonizing action of estrogen and

progesterone (gestrinone and danazol). However, the latter have typical androgenics

side effects: hirsutism, virilization, acne, seborrhea, oily skin and weight gain.

Then, official therapies are ineffective and burdened with many side effects.

 

But, natural cures for endometriosis that are effective and without side effects

that act on pain and pelvic inflammation are possible. This is thanks to action of natural

substances like Rhodiola rosea and vitis vinifera. They have an anti-inflammatory

action, anti-free radical, normalizing the microcirculation.

 

Then, there are other natural substances, like flavoproteins and coenzymes, which

naturally contribute to restoration of mast cells metabolism. The rebalancing of

their cell membranes causes the restoration of the immune system normal conditions

and the disappearance of disorders due to endometriosis.
