Endometriosis

Homeopathic treatment

Homeopathy is a true science, looking at each case of endometriosis quite differently than allopathy or modern medical science. No two women will have the same symptoms for endometriosis, and will not suffer the same knock-on health problems.

Allopathic physicians think that the work is finished when we put a label on the patient. "Yes, you have endometriosis. Take these drugs; you might need surgery, maybe it is both, go home and pray that it will go away."

In some instances the pain can prohibit a woman to partake in everyday activities as well as her ability to sustain a career. So it is not that easy to treat and manage a case of endometriosis.

Treating such patients with allopathic medicines will not only increase their problems but can ruin their social, professional and personal life.

Homeopathy has its time-tested usefulness. Remedies used for around two hundred and fifty years ago are still used with the same efficacy as then for the same disease which is not the case with allopathic medicines.

Are the measures (surgery, drugs with its multiple side effects) a guarantee for a "cure" for you the sufferer? We already know the answer to this: it is a resounded NO.

Medicines used in allopathic / conventional treatment of endometriosis are the pain relievers such as aspirin, acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn). They are useful for mild cramping and menstrual pain, however if the pain is severe, a doctor may prescribe narcotic medications, although these can be addicting and are rarely used.

Hormonal therapies are given but they also act as contraceptives. They include oral contraceptives, synthetic male hormones (danazol, gestrinone), progestins, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonists.

Drugs used by allopaths are geared towards suppressing the activity of the ovaries and therefore slow down the growth of the endometrial tissue. But this is not the cure. When you stop these drugs the disease returns with a vengeance.

Surgery is advised to women with moderate to severe endometriosis; again this does not lead to a cure as it addresses the end result of the illness - the weeds, but not at all the root. So, if you do not opt for surgery (hysterectomy) you have no other option in the allopathic / conventional treatment. But is surgery the right option for young females? If not, then there is no choice other than suffering the side effects in the allopathic treatment.

And after surgery there is the risk of adhesions with every removal of endometrial tissue. Removing the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes (hysterectomy) is the only permanent method of eliminating endometriosis but is this solution for these young women? Obviously not! Thank god Homeopathy is there to help you!

Homeopathy has good scope in the treatment especially in the early stages of the condition. The goals in treating endometriosis are to eliminate symptoms, prevent flare-ups (maintain long-term remission) and restore the quality of life.

Homeopathic medicines are prescribed after knowing the complete detail of the patient which includes physical, mental, personal and family history (genetic predisposition) of the patient.

Homeopathy remedies also help in slowing down the progress of the disease and the development of complications. The treatment can help in inducing longer remissions and can also assist in improving the immunity so that the patient does not face frequent relapses.

Homeopathic treatment also improves ability to tolerate mental and physical stress, and alter the hereditary predisposition to the disease. The method of prescribing on a totality of symptoms is designed to be curative, not just palliative and suppressive.

Even though nobody thinks of homeopathy in a condition like endometriosis, miraculous results can be seen in such cases.

How homeopathy helps

  • The medicines help to improve function of cells in the nervous system resulting in lessening symptoms of endometriosis such as headache, poor-quality sleep, fatigue and feelings of hopelessness.
  • The treatment helps the liver in fatty acid metabolism, thereby balancing the levels of prostaglandins hormone during menstrual cycle that reduces tension of over active uterine muscle leading to lesson of menstrual cramps.
  • The remedies help to improve the function of digestive system, thereby helping the absorption of vitamins and minerals that are vital for women with endometriosis.
  • By increasing function of liver, it helps reduce symptoms of liver diseases and increase the production of good cholesterol to bind the bad cholesterol in the arteries, thereby increasing the blood circulation that is necessary to reduce heavy blood flow and cramps during menstruation.
  • The medicines help the kidney to secrete of the body toxins through urinary tract and reduce the risk of environment toxins accumulation that causes abnormal cell growth resulting in lessening the risk of endometriosis.

There are 10 homeopathy medicines which give great relief in endometriosis. However, the correct choice and the resulting relief is a matter of experience and right judgment on the part of the doctor. The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient. Thus remedies are designer made unlike allopathy in which all patients receive the same surgery or drugs although trade name may be different.

What is endometriosis

Endometriosis is a debilitating gynecological medical condition in females in which endometrial-like cells appear and flourish in areas outside the uterine cavity, most commonly on the ovaries.

Normally, the tissue that lines a woman’s uterus is known as endometrium. In a female suffering with endometriosis, microscopic bits of this tissue migrate outside the uterus, become implanted on the other organs (within the abdominal cavity) and grow there.

The endometrial tissue outside your uterus responds to your menstrual cycle hormones the same way the tissue inside your uterus responds - it swells and thickens, then sheds to mark the beginning of the next cycle.

The blood that is shed from the endometrial tissue in the abdominal cavity has no place to go, resulting in pools of blood causing an inflammation that forms scar tissue. The scar tissue can block the fallopian tubes or interfere with ovulation.

Another result of endometriosis is the formation of ovarian cysts called endometrioma that may also interfere with ovulation.

Endometriosis is a progressive disease that tends to get worse over time. The disease is highly unpredictable. Some women may have just a few isolated implants that never spread or grow, while in others the disease may spread throughout the pelvis.

Causes

  • One popular theory focuses on a potential process known as retrograde menstruation. Retrograde menstruation can be thought of as backward flow during a period.
  • Another theory, also known as coelomic metaplasia, suggests that a layer of cells surrounding the ovaries and other cells within the pelvic region are able to change into endometrial cells that are much the same as normal endometrial tissue. It is not certain what causes this development, but evidence suggests irritation by retrograde menstrual flow or infections may be the culprit.
  • Transfer of endometrial tissues by a surgical procedure might be the cause for endometriosis implants seen in surgical scars (for example, episiotomy or cesarean section scars).
  • Some studies have shown alternations in the immune response in women with endometriosis, suggesting that abnormalities in the immune system may play a role in the development of the condition.

Symptoms

  • Pain before and during periods
  • Pain during intercourse
  • General, chronic pelvic pain throughout the month
  • Low back pain
  • Heavy and/or irregular periods
  • Painful bowel movements, especially during menstruation
  • Painful urination during menstruation
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Headaches
  • Low grade fevers
  • Depression
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Anxiety
  • Susceptibility to infections, allergies

Complications

  • Acute abdomen : This is considered an emergency. Endometriosis affecting the intestines in particular can cause intestinal obstruction giving rise to acute, spasmodic, abdominal pain with nausea and vomiting.
  • Collapse of lungs during menstruation (catamenial peumothorax).
  • Infertility due to obstruction of the fallopian tubes.

Diagnosis

There are a variety of methods that can be used to assess whether a woman has Endometriosis, but the only reliable way to confirm the presence of the disease is by visually inspecting the abdominal organs by a procedure called a laparoscopy. Before a laparoscopy is done a full gynecological evaluation should be done covering the patient’s medical history.

Diet

  • Eliminate potential food allergens, including dairy, wheat (gluten), corn, soy, preservatives, and food additives. Your health care provider may test for food sensitivities.
  • Eat antioxidant foods, including fruits (such as blueberries, cherries, and tomatoes), and vegetables (such as kale, spinach, and bell pepper).
  • Avoid refined foods, such as white breads, pastas, and sugar.
  • Eat fewer red meats and more lean meats, cold water fish, tofu (soy, if no allergy), or beans for protein.
  • Use healthy cooking oils, such as olive oil or vegetable oil.
  • Reduce or eliminate trans fatty acids, found in commercially baked goods such as cookies, crackers, cakes, french fries, onion rings, donuts, processed foods, and margarine.
  • Avoid alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine, and limit foods that are high in sugar, salt, and fat. Avoid foods with additives such as monosodium glutamate (MSG).
  • Drink 6 - 8 glasses of filtered water daily.
