4 amazing remedies for endometriosis
1. Natural Progesterone Cream
For many women, natural progesterone cream appears to provide significant relief from symptoms related to shifts in the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.
For younger women, such imbalances are often associated with endometriosis, and bring on symptoms such as:
- Painful periods (dysmenorrhea).
- Pain with intercourse. Pain during or after sex is common with endometriosis.
- Pain with bowel movements or urination.
- Excessive bleeding.
Sometimes known as Chastetree Berry, this herb is helpful for reducing pain and inflammation in the uterus. Vitex also stimulates your pituitary gland, a gland in the brain that regulates all hormone function in the body. By way of this, vitex could increase progesterone, reducing the estrogen dominance often found in endo.
In medieval times, the chasteberry (botanically known as Vitex agnus-castus) was thought to suppress the libido of both males and females. Legend has it that monks once chewed on the dried berries in an effort to adhere to their vows of celibacy. Today, it’s clear that the herb does not affect sexual drive, but chasteberry does have an important role to play in treating women’s reproductive-tract disorders and menstrual-related complaints. In Europe, chasteberry is now recommended more often than any other herb for relieving the symptoms of PMS and endometriosis.
3. Wild Yam
Wild yam is a species of a twining tuberous vine that is found growing wild in North America.
It has been used in herbal medicine in treating menstrual cramps and to increase liver function.
The Aztecs and Mayans were the first to recognize healing properties in the root of the wild yam (Dioscorea villosa),a climbing vine. They used it to relieve pain.
4. Dong Quai (angelica)
Dong quai has been used in Asia for thousands of years as a tonic for the female reproductive system. In fact, it ranks just below ginseng as the most popular herb in China and Japan, although its effectiveness has yet to be substantiated by conventional Western standards.
