Endometriosis Part 99 – Endometriosis and Herbs

As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle by building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Herbs have been used for over a thousand years in treating endometriosis. In this article, we will discuss how herbalists accomplished that.

In herbal medicine, the treatment of endometriosis not only provides medicine for pain but also emphasizes the underlining reason causing the pain.

1. Protagslandins hormone treatment
Uterine tonic are important herbs that are used to treat pain for women with endometriosis pain. By improving the uterine tones, it helps to regulate the production of prostaglandins and keep them in check. By balancing the hormone protagslandins in the reproductive organ during the menstrual cycle, it maintains the level of movement of uterus muscles making it easier for women with endometriosis to manage pain. Herbs used include dong quai and raspberry leaves.

2. Anti muscle spasmodic herbs
If the woman feels pain only in the cervix area caused by crampy flow or very little flow then a special herb or a group of herbs will be given to reduce the uterine muscle spasm and pain by bringing on menstrual flow. Herbs used include dioscorea and back cohosh.

3. How to bring on period flow
Congestive symptoms such as heavy dragging pain with late onset of period, then some herbs will be given to relieve the pain by bringing on menstrual flow. Herbs used in this group include all herbs classified as emmenagogues.

4. Hormone regulators
Herbs that are used to regulate protagslandins, estrogen, and progesterone hormones such as vitexagus castus to reduce levels of congestive period and endometriosis pain.

5. Prostaglandins inhibitors
Herbs that are used to inhibit the excess level of prostaglandins hormone causing over-activity of uterine muscles include curcuma longa and ginger.
