Natural help for Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a condition where tissue, similar to the lining of the uterus (Endometrial cells, which should only be located inside the uterus) is found elsewhere in the body. Endometrial cells are the same cells that are shed each month during menstruation. The cells of endometriosis attach themselves to tissue outside the uterus and are called endometriosis implants.
Endometriosis implants or lesions can be found anywhere on the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, on the pelvic sidewall, or outer surface of the uterus or intestines. It is less commonly found in the vagina, cervix, and bladder. In rare cases, it is found outside the pelvis, on the liver, old surgery scars, and even on the lungs or brain. While endometriosis can cause problems, they are benign. (not cancerous)
Endometriosis can cause scar tissue and adhesions to develop, that can distort a woman’s internal anatomy. In advanced stages, internal organs may fuse together, causing a condition known as a “frozen pelvis.”
- Infertility has been associated with endometriosis.
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea—particularly just prior to or during the period.
- Frequent menses flow or short menstrual cycle.
- Heavy or long menstrual periods
- Mood swings and fatigue
- Gastrointestinal symptoms that mimic irritable bowel syndrome.
- Pelvic Pain, which may include the following:
- Painful, sometimes disabling menstrual cramps; pain may get worse over time(progressive pain), also lower back pains linked to the pelvis.
- Over all Pelvic pain, typically accompanied by lower back pain or abdominal pain.
- Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Painful bowel movements
- Urinary urgency, frequency, and sometimes painful voiding
The main cause is still unknown. The following are theories involved:
- Excess Estrogen Production
- Hereditary (The disease tends to be worse with the next generation)
- Immune system Problem (Which may affect the body’s natural ability to recognize and destroy any misdirected growth of endometrial tissue)
- Hormonal dysfunction
- Environmental factors related to toxins
- Retrograde menstruation (Back up of menstrual flow into the Fallopian tubes and the pelvic and abdominal cavity during menstruation)
- Coelomic metaplasia (Where areas lining the pelvic organs possess primitive cells that are able to grow into other forms of tissue, such as endometrial cells.)
- Direct Transfer of tissue, during surgeries.
- Transfer of endometrial cells via the bloodstream or lymphatic system (The most likely explanation for the rare cases of endometriosis that develop in the brain and other organs distant from the pelvis.)
For any Natural Help, give your body 1 month to heal for every year you have had a problem.
- Reduce Estrogen producing foods such as Soy products, Pasteurized dairy, and non-organic Meats.
- Use a Natural Progesterone cream under the direction of your health care provider. Dr. John R. Lee has some books that might help offer some advice.
- For Cramps, massage the heel and ankles (as with Reflexology) with 3-4 drops Basil or Geranium. Can also do a lower abdominal massage using 3-4 drops Basil mixed with 1 teaspoon Carrier oil. Message in a clockwise circular direction on the abdomen and a counter-clockwise direction on the corresponding area of the back.
Eucalyptus radiata can ease inflammation from endotrometriosis.
Lavender helps with cellular regeneration and scar tissue with fibroids.
Cypress helps with circulation.
Frankincense helps with any cancer causing cells…for safety precautions.
CAUTION: Always conduct a patch test and use Carrier Oil before Implanting Any Essential Oil.
For any of the following recipes, purchase tampons with the plastic applicator (Kotex), then it’s easier to pull the cotton tampon out. Soak the tampon in the oil mixture (Not sopping wet, just coated well…you don’t want it to start swelling), place the tampon back into the plastic applicator, and then insert it vaginally, then leave in overnight. This is an easier way than trying a douche method. Overnight, the body will naturally soak up what is on the cotton tampon. The best time to start inserting the tampon, with the oil mixture; is right after your menstrual flow ends. Insert each night for 3 weeks or until your next period begins.
