Endometriosis

This one is for our lovely female patients


We now live in a society where we are exposed to a lot of xenoestrogen “foreign” estrogens, substances that are close enough in molecular structure to estrogen that they can bind to estrogen receptor sites with potentially hazardous outcomes” which comes in forms of perfumes, shampoos, creams and a whole lot of different body products that are full of chemicals which are harmful not just harmful to our bodies, but our immune system as well.

Some animals are fed with a lot of hormones and antibiotics which are used to make them grow faster, and their fodder has more often than not high levels of pesticides. These xenoestrogens enter our bloodstream and disturb our hormonal system, promoting estrogen dominance which in turn paves the way for tissues to grow in areas that they are not supposed to, ie the birth of endometriosis.  Symptoms that symbolise estrogen dominance include the following :

Endometriosis symptoms

This tissue that grows outside the uterus lining sometimes continues to act in the same manner it would do while within the uterus that is thickening, breaking down, and sometimes bleeding. The discomfort you get during this process, which is usually a result of the inflammation and irritation in the area, can lead to the extreme pain, especially during the period days.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

It’s funny because sometimes there can be no symptoms of endometriosis at all unless you have been diagnosed through a laparoscope. This is where an instrument is inserted through the abdominal wall to visualise the uterus and surrounding structures. However, some of the common symptoms that you might experience include the following :

  • Extreme pain before, during, and after a menstrual cycle.
  • Nose bleeds with cycle.
  • Dark menstrual blood
  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Depression
  • Infertility


These symptoms may vary in severity, but they are usually of long term duration, and as many women have discovered, very resistant to many forms of treatment.

There are several standard conventional solutions that have been adapted and are often used to treating endometriosis, and the below three are also considered as the solution to endometriosis.

Visanne Pill
Over the years, the Visanne pill has been trusted with the treatment of the painful symptoms of endometriosis. Taking one Visanne pill once every day leads to the shrinking of the endometrial tissue and reduces associated complaints such as pelvic pain and painful monthly bleedings. Unfortunately, once you stop the pill, the pain slowly comes back again, which leads you back to the drawing board.

Laser Surgery
To laser off the excess tissue can also be a solution, but then again, in my experience, l have learned that it grows back. Multiple laser sessions result in more lasers, and each time you do these sessions, the time between surgeries becomes shorter. Bear in mind that the operation has its fair share of pros and cons that you might need to consider before signing up for it. Remember, you do not want to worsen the situation.

Hysterectomy
This is a surgical procedure that removes the uterus and perhaps, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other surrounding structures, which includes endometriosis. This procedure can get rid of the reason and the pain but hardly addresses the root cause of the excess tissue growth.

The Natural approach to treating endometriosis

Detoxifying the body to get rid of excess estrogen in the body that causes an imbalance can help improve the symptoms of endometriosis. In case you are wondering how you could achieve this, the answer is in the broccoli extract.

Cell-Assure

CellAssure contains the active component sulforaphane, which is derived from broccoli and in particular, broccoli sprouts. Sulforaphane is only produced when a chemical reaction occurs between two substances found naturally in the intact plant. Sulforaphane can enhance a cell’s defense processes by activating a compound within the cell that then “switches on” or “upregulates” around 200 defense genes.

regular intake of broccoli sprouts provides a simple way of enhancing these processes which naturally decline as we age or are unwell. Since broccoli, for many people, is not the most popular vegetable, CellAssure provides a more convenient way of ensuring optimal intake for achieving the greatest benefits. Broccoli on its own cannot provide the complete nutrigenomics benefits like CellAssure does, as store-bought broccoli is missing a number of key ingredients that are lost within 30 minutes from when the broccoli is harvested.

Please consult with your health care practitioner before embarking on a natural treatment. 

Through an interesting study conducted by the Healthcare Medicine Institute, see link below, it has been scientifically proven that through the specific acupoints used for treating endometriosis, acupuncture can be useful.

Castor oil packs
The traditional oil packs are known for alleviating symptoms of uterus pain for a short time giving you ample time to decide on a rather reliable permanent solution for how you can get rid of the root cause of endometriosis. This cool video below is a clear illustration on how you can prepare a castor oil pack :



If you, however, want to have a more detailed understanding of how your hormones get metabolised in your body, the Epigenetic DNA estrogen test can give you more insights.

This might be overwhelming for you, especially if you are subjected to so much pain every month due to an unknown cause, and you are still in search of what treatment plan could be right for you. Please make an appointment with us so that we can help you find and apply the best solution.
