Endometriosis is the amalgamation of cells of the uterine lining on the outside of the wall. The uterine lining comes out of its sector and invades the urinary and digestive spheres, sometimes even at the respiratory level. This spread of endometriotic cells causes deep, violent pain and disrupts all affected areas. The first symptoms are sharp pain before the cycle, profuse bleeding and pain during intercourse.
Adhesions sometimes form between the uterus and the intestine and this increases the risk of infertility. Sometimes operations are necessary to remove adhesions.
The possible causes of endometriosis are: hormonal imbalances, menstruation crossed due to the use of tampons and IUDs, stress and immune disorders due to endocrine disruptors that mimic estrogen. Exposure to phthalates, bisphenols A, organochlorine pesticides and dioxins.
Here are some herbs that can help with your endometriosis:
To balance hormones: chaste tree, ashwagandha (strengthens resistance to stress and rebalances hormones), Chinese angelica, wild yam, shatavari, peony, licorice, black cohosh.
To relieve pain: Obier viburnum, pulsative, black cohosh and passion flower;
Make massages based on sesame or castor oil with 2 drops of lavender, rosemary, rose, chamomile or ginger oil for 5ml (1 teaspoon);
To reduce abundant hemorrhages, astringent plants are: red trillium, yarrow, periwinkle, lady's mantle, agrimony, Chinese foxglove, rose;
Those that increase resistance to stress: Siberian ginseng, shatavari, oats, American skullcap, ashwagandha;
To decrease pelvic congestion and improve circulation: ginger, American bitter ash, motu kola, common hawthorn;
To help the breakdown and excretion of hormones: hepatic plants are useful: burdock, milk thistle, blessed thistle, dandelion.
