The Causes of Endometriosis

by endosolu

I think your body is not working properly… while that may seem a really simplistic view… its the truth in my world.

Your hormonal & immune system is not working well… when those things work well symptoms are relieved… isn’t that what you want?

Before everyone gets on their high horse… my definition of a cure (and most other peoples) is to relieve a person of the symptoms of a disease or condition.

Note: I have met many women who have successfully treated their own endometriosis naturally, naturally combined with surgery or with just surgery alone. I am not here to tell you what is right or wrong.  I am simply letting you know what has worked in my world.

The info below is a whole list of ‘what others think’

Traditional Chinese Medicine links endometriosis with liver problems (note to all reading I would trust 60,000 years of observation i.e. Chinese Medicine over 50 years of experimentation i.e. Western Medicine any day… unless my arm needed to be sewn back on… there are always exceptions to the rule 🙂

While T.C.M. can seem very confusing upon first glance, we have learned not to underestimate its usefulness. A study titled Chinese Herbal Medicine For Endometriosis, at Southampton University revealed that Chinese herbal medicine is more effective for endometriosis relief than mainstream treatments are, with no side effects.

The liver is the primary organ that is responsible for the elimination of toxins. When the liver is unsuccessful at flushing toxins, they sometimes remain in the liver forever. These liver toxins are the most common cause of liver impairment. The liver is responsible for the regulation of the sex hormones, including oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Increases in oestrogen make endometriosis more severe, indicating yet another hormonal component of the condition and the condition’s relationship to liver health. The fact that this condition could be caused by liver dysfunction means that women who opt for mainstream treatments could eventually find themselves in a worse condition after treatments than they were before treatments. This is because all pharmaceuticals stress the liver.

The Endometriosis Association has done massive amounts of research on the connection between endometriosis and dioxin exposure. Dioxins are a by-product of chlorination, which is used to bleach sanitary towels and tampons. The bleaching process is known to release dioxins that remain on consumer products. This exposure, particularly in the case of tampons, could cause endometriosis or worsen it.

It has been shown that alcoholic women (or former alcoholics) are more likely to have endometriosis. Heavy drinking places a massive strain on the liver.

Numerous studies have additionally linked a higher risk of endometriosis with women who have diets which are low in anti-oxidants, or who have above-average “free radicals” (oxidation) in the body. Oxidative damage is indicative of a bad diet overall, lacking in both fruits and vegetables. This can be easily fixed with dietary changes and supplementation.

Korean study has linked endometriosis with small figured women, and the researchers noted that the thinner the women are, the more severe the disease. Hormones have a dramatic effect upon a person’s weight, and thin women tend to have smaller amounts of the hormone estrogen, which makes it more difficult for them to become pregnant.
