Endometriosis Natural Ayurvedic Treatments

Author : Gurnam Saini  

 

 

 

Nowadays, gynecological problems are becoming common. One of the common problems is termed as endometriosis. It affects 10 to 20 percent of women of childbearing age worldwide.

 

 

What is Endometriosis?

 

 

Every month ovaries produces hormones that cause swelling and thickening of endometrium (mucus cells linings) of the uterus. The uterus sheds these mucous membranous cells along with menstrual blood through the vagina during the menstruation. When endometrium grows outside of the uterus, it results in the endometriosis.

 

 

The presence of endometrium (uterine mucous membrane) outside the lining of uterus is known endometriosis. It causes painful periods and premenstrual pain.

 

 

Endometriosis Treatment in Ayuevda

 

 

Endometriosis is caused by aggravation of Kapha humor, according to ayurveda. However, other two humors (Vata & Pitta) may be associated with the occurrence of this disease, but the dominant humor is Kapha.

 

 

Kapha dosha controls the endometrial tissue growth in the uterus and Pitta controls the uterine blood flow and menstrual cycle. Vata controls the hormonal functions through the brain by stimulation of hormone production. Pain in endometriosis is due to the Vata humor.

 

Derangement in natural functions of these ayurvedic three humors may cause endometriosis, as per ayurvedic science.

 

 

Symptoms of Endometriosis

 

Pelvic pain is the main symptom of this disease. The occurrence of the pelvic pain may be linked with the menstrual period. Often women with endometriosis experience abdominal pain before and during the menstruation.
