Endometriosis Info

Endometriosis is a common contributing factor to fertility problems in women. It is a condition where cells from the lining of the uterus appear outside the uterine cavity, triggering inflammatory responses. Endometrial-like cells in areas outside the uterus are influenced by hormonal changes and respond in a way that is similar to the cells found inside the uterus. The lesions associated with endometriosis, bleed at menstruation and can trigger cytokines of the immune system to instigate the inflammatory reaction - recognising these internal uterine cells as foreign. Symptoms can often worsen with the menstrual cycle.

Endometriosis is typically seen during reproductive years; it has been estimated that endometriosis occurs in around 6–10% of women. Symptoms may depend on the site of active endometriosis, the main symptom is pelvic pain - with some sufferers describing the pain as 'gnawing,' 'dragging' and 'throbbing.' 

Endometriosis is common in women with infertility.

As mentioned, endometriosis is a common contributing factor to fertility problems in women. Endometriosis can be treated in a variety of ways. Although medical treatment usually requires surgery and the use of hormones and pain medication, there are effective natural alternatives available including changes to diet, herbs, and nutrient supplementation. Essential fatty acids from fish oil apparently interfere with the production of cytokines and thus have the ability to reduce the faulty inflammation associated with endometriosis. Fish oil may also have a positive impact on other symptoms associated with endometriosis.

Eating cooked brassicas helps reduce oestrogen dominance, an increasingly prevalent factor due to excess consumption of meat and dairy foods plus xenoestrogenic chemical pollution of our living environments. Dietary supplementation with vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene, milk thistle may also be beneficial in treating the symptoms. Furthermore taking magnesium, vitamin B complex and maca root will help soothe. Teas are good too e.g. dandelion and ginger.

    I'm on my first bottle and I believe I can honestly say I have noticed a difference. I do take them with a Zinc supplement and sometimes a B-Complex vitamin if I'm busy. My moods are more balanced and my last cycle was not so awful. Will purchase another to see me through the next cycle, I hope I have finally found the right balance for me.

    I'm reviewing different Magnesium products for help with sleep and muscle relaxant. I liked that it was liquid and was open to the liposomal idea, but noticed no difference during the 1 month trial. I will be trialing several others and looking at different forms of Magnesium. Will not use this or recommend this one
