Having a natural endometriosis treatment plan that involves herbal remedies, supplements, abdominal massage, and detox will make a huge difference on your fertility and your endometriosis.
Other important key factors that cannot be forgotten are your diet and your life style. Your diet plays a very important role when it comes to prevent endometriosis from spreading. Knowing which foods to avoid and which to eat will improve your endometriosis in a very short period of time.
Changing your life style involves making sure to avoid certain environmental pollutants known by scientists to cause and aggravate endometriosis. These are called endocrine disruptors and xenoestrogens.
"Over the years, high levels of man-made chemicals have been released into the environment. Many of these chemical have the ability to modulate the action of hormones and are called endocrine disrupters. There is also evidence that endocrine disruptors may enhance the development and promotion of endometriosis..." (Human Reproduction Update, 7(3):323-330, 2001)
If you suffer from endometriosis, there is so much you can do, I will show you what I believe to be the best natural endometriosis treatment available to women who are having difficulty conceiving as a result of this condition. If you are not planning to get pregnant and have endometriosis, the information discussed here will be very helpful as well.
The medical community is not yet convinced that a medical approach to the management of endometriosis is always the most appropriate way to go.
"Endometriosis is a common finding in women with infertility, but the mechanism by which it renders a woman infertile remains unclear. Despite many years of controversy and debate, there remains a strong bias against medical treatment for endometriosis-associated infertility." (Fertility and Sterility, 73(6):1089-1096, 2000)
A natural approach is, in my opinion the first course of action before resorting to more invasive types of medical therapies. Here, I will take you step by step into what a consider a very effective natural endometriosis treatment. Most women find relief and improvement within 3 months of using this protocol.
The following is a step-by-step approach to the natural treatment of endometriosis.
Performing a Fertility Cleanse is one of the best first steps you can take in preparation for conception especially if you suffer from endometriosis. A Fertility Cleanse clearing out toxins that cause hormonal imbalance.
Endometriosis is often referred to as an "estrogen Dominance" condition caused by excess estrogen in the body that stimulates the development and proliferation of endometrial tissue.
Estrogen receptors in the lining on the uterus have the function to respond to naturally occurring estrogen present in the body to grow and proliferate in order to prepare for implantation.
If in your body you have access estrogen the endometrium is under constant stimulation to proliferate and grow. This over time may aggravate endometriosis.
1. Support the detoxification of the liver and the elimination of excess estrogen and toxins causing endocrine disruption.
2. Cleaning the lining of the uterus from excess debris, clots, stagnant blood and toxins. You may not be aware of the fact that the uterus becomes a repository of toxins.
Many studies have reported how uterine fibroids contain many toxic compounds like DDT, dioxine and others, which as a xenoestrogen that could promote their growth.
In herbal medicine, the uterus is often referred to as "The Second Liver" as it stores harmful chemicals preventing them from circulating into the blood stream.
3. Reduce inflammation in the reproductive organs. Endometriosis causes inflammation, which is often responsible for the pain and the uncomfortable endometriosis symptoms.
4. Increase circulation to the reproductive system to stimulate oxygen rich blood to nourish the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes.
5. Facilitate the empty out of the uterus during menstruation. Menstruation is considered the normal way your body eliminates toxins in the blood each months.
If during your period you do not completed cleanse your uterus, debris and old tissue and blood is left behind causing inflammation and toxicity. This is not the healthiest place to grow a baby.
If you have endometriosis, you need to follow a cleanse that not only cleanses the liver, but also the uterus. The herbs, vitamins and minerals, contained in the Fertility Cleanse help the body to release toxins by cleansing the liver and the uterus.
1. Cleansing The Liver The liver is the largest organ in the body whose job is to filter the blood from impurities (chemicals, pathogens, hormones, etc.). If you suffer from estrogen dominance and have endometriosis, you will most likely have an over abundance of estrogen. This causes a burden to the liver who may get to a place where it cannot longer function properly.
Having a sluggish liver is very common in women with endometriosis. Herbal remedies have important properties that stimulate the liver to speed up the release of toxins. The herbs also help repair and soothe liver cells and tissue, which will be able to perform their ruction more efficiently.
Cleansing The Uterus In some instances the uterus is nor able (due to weakness) to completely empty its entire contents during each menstrual cycle. Over a number of months or even years, this leads to symptoms like dysmenorrhea (painful periods), PMS, uterine cramps, back pain, brown blood, spotting between menses, blood clotting during menstruation, endometriosis, PCOS, amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), irregular cycles. If you bleed less than 4 days during your cycle, your uterus may not completely cleanse every cycle and old stagnant blood will remain inside causing problems.
I really love the fertility cleanse, watch this video and you will understand why:
I have experienced personally the benefits of natural progesterone therapy every time without fail and I am so grateful to Dr. John Lee's research work for bringing natural progesterone therapy to women's health.
He scientifically tested a protocol that can significantly help women with endometriosis. In his protocol he recommends using natural progesterone cream from days 8 to 26 of your cycle to assist in reducing the effects of estrogen on the body (estrogen stimulates endometrial growth).
Depending on the extent of the endometriosis, Dr. Lee has had success with this protocol controlling symptoms within six months, even if you can get benefits much sooner. Natural progesterone when applied from day 8 to day 26 suppresses ovulation and you will not be able to conceive during this time.
It is best to use natural progesterone cream for 1-2 months before trying to conceive and under supervision of a health care practitioner. Once the endometriosis is under control and you are ready to conceive, reduce usage to two weeks from after ovulation till your periods. This is usually from day 15 to day 28.
Only take the minimum dose recommended because natural progesterone cream is stored in the fat cells for long periods of time. A little will go a long way.
Fertilica Progesterone cream automatically dispenses 20mg of I also want to point out that the quality and quantity of the progesterone cream is very important.
I like Fertilica Progesterone cream because it also contains botanicals, and nutrients that support the utilization of Progesterone in the body.
Make sure to follow the endometriosis diet. The most important food you can ever add to your diet in order to decrease and eliminate endometriosis is DIM. DIM has been shown in studies to support hormonal balance by breaking down estrogen and removing it from the body. It is present in cabbage, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.
Unfortunately in order to have a therapeutic effect that can address excess estrogen, you need to eat a really large amount of these vegetables. The best way is to take DIM as a supplement.
Taking enzymes has a highly therapeutic action on the body when it comes to tissue repair and regeneration needed to endometriosis sufferers. Systemic enzymes help the body to breakdown endometrial tissue growing outside of the uterus by removing fibrin build-up.
Wobenzym contained in the EndoWise Fertility Kit contains a specific variety of the most highly recommended systemic enzymes, in the right quantities and proportions for assisting in dissolving endometrial type tissues and aiding in congesting conditions like those that are present when someone has endometriosis.
Wobenzym has shown through a clinical study to be a method of immune therapy for women with a history of immunologically-induced recurrent miscarriages.
It is also known clinically to reduce endometriosis adhesions, reducing scar tissues left from PID, surgery, ectopic pregnancy and tubal litigation reversal.
Herbs are nature's healing gifts to women when it comes to hormonal balance, fertility and pregnancy. Herbal remedies for women help achieve hormonal balance by reducing excess estrogen that fuels abnormal endometrial growths herbs also stimulate liver activity for optimal estrogen and progesterone metabolism.
The main herbs for women hormonal balance are:
1. Goldenseal, which supports the immune system and has antibacterial and anti-viral properties. It also help reduce, inflammation and pain in the uterus and reproductive organs.
2. Jamaican Dogwood, which is a natural pain killer and helps reduce pain associated with endometriosis and menstrual cramps.
3. Red Raspberry Leaf, which relaxes the muscles of the uterus helping regulate bleeding and strengthen the uterine muscles during menstruation and birth. This herbs addresses uterine weakness.
4. Dong Quai, which balances estrogen levels in the body. It also promotes circulation to reproductive organs helping regulate the menstrual flow.
