Endometriosis Natural Treatment

Many women who have been diagnosed with endometriosis are finding relief from their symptoms with alternative therapies and natural treatments. Endometriosis natural treatment options are achieving improvements in the disease as well.

Many alternate therapies look at the whole body in a holistic way, when treating a medical condition or disease. As well as the physical condition of the patient, their emotional, spiritual and mental health is considered in the diagnosis and treatment. When finding a suitable treatment for endometriosis, this approach is particularly pertinent as this is a disease that affects every facet of the person and not only the physical symptoms of the condition.

The interest in alternative and natural therapies continues to grow as people come to realize that many of the drugs available to us today, have nasty side-effects and only address certain symptoms. More and more people are looking for an alternative and more natural way of dealing with their health issues.

Alternative medicine consists of a variety of disciplines and techniques and many practitioners make use of more than one natural treatment with a patient. There seems to be a synergistic effect when complementary therapies are used together, meaning that the total benefit is greater than the individual parts on their own. Many of these techniques are hundreds, or even thousands, of years old and have developed in Eastern countries like Asia and India. Many Western people are unfamiliar with these Eastern therapies; this is why we have come to call them alternative, as they appear to be so very different to what we know as Western medicine.

Therapies that are considered alternative include herbal medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, Reiki, homeopathy, naturopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine and aromatherapy but there are many others. Which of these are the most beneficial when treating endometriosis?

Endometriosis Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has many branches but one of the best known and recognized in the West is acupuncture. The practitioner inserts very fine needles into specific areas of the body, called acupuncture points, to relieve a variety of conditions, especially pain.

Acupuncture can help relieve the pain of endometriosis and, when combined with specific TCM herbal medicines, can reduce the endometrial implants, heavy bleeding and help to balance hormone levels again. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine are not quick fixes and so you will need to commit to allowing the time necessary for the treatment to have an effect.

Endometriosis Herbal Medicine
Not all herbal medicine practices are part of Chinese medicine, and there are other branches of herbal medicine that are also effective in treating endometriosis. Basically, herbal medicine refers to the treatment of medical conditions using therapeutic plants which can be used externally and internally, as lotions, ointments, tinctures and teas.

There are widely recognized therapeutic herbal preparations that have been used for centuries to cure a wide variety of conditions in people; many of these have now been proven by scientific research. Your herbal medicine practitioner will probably first use preparations to restore your hormone balance while strengthening your immune system so your body can start to heal itself.

Endometriosis Homeopathy
Homeopathy uses natural substances in minute doses to stimulate the body's immune system so it can fight disease. Like many of the natural treatments, treatment is geared very individually towards each patient, with the emphasis on treating the person, not the disease. All the factors leading up to endometriosis are taken into account before treatment is commenced.

Endometriosis Naturopathy
Naturopaths base their treatments on the basic belief that the body has the ability to heal itself and restore a state of balance or equilibrium. Underlying factors are considered and treated, rather than simply treating the symptoms. A holistic approach will be taken in treating your endometriosis, with hormone balance, lifestyle and diet being considered. Naturopathy has gained considerable acceptance, even within conventional medicine.

Endometriosis Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy uses the fragrance and medicinal properties of the essential oils of plants to heal the body and emotions. Essential oils are extracted from different parts of the plant to be used in preparations for massage, poultices and inhalation. Massage helps the therapeutic essential oils be absorbed by the skin so they can enter the blood stream. Endometriosis patients can be helped by aromatherapy through assisting in relaxation and sleep, improved digestion, strengthening the immune and reproductive systems and balancing hormone levels.

It is important that you seek the services of only fully trained and qualified practitioners when using endometriosis natural treatments. Your doctor may be able to recommend a practitioner or ask around your friends for a recommendation.
