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.

  • Excellent!

    star

    I have used red raspberry leaves for quite some time and find they balance my moods and also help with tummy issues. They are full of vitamins and minerals too, so this is good to know! All this, besides being safe enough to use during pregnancy. All in all, a good product!

  • Absolutely amazing

    star

    I was having a really hard time coming off the depo provera injection after 5 years, suffering from weepiness, sore breasts, fatigue, amenorrhea, hot flashes, etc. I began taking DIM, liquid vitex, and liver cleanse tablets and after only 2 weeks of use, was not only completely back to normal, but had more energy and clearer skin than I've had in the last 5 years. Really impressed with these tablets, they absolutely work.

  • It's not the products fault lol

    star

    I have been taking this product for several months now. I know I miss it if I don't take it, but I'm not sure if it is exactly what I am looking for as it is figthing against many other symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, irregular periods, weight gain, no energy, no brain lol.... could just be the joys of being 48. I thought I'd give it a go and it does help a wee bit with thinking in my job but I would have to say I haven't felt huge benefits.... in saying that, that's a pretty big ask of any product at the moment lol.. I still think it is a good product, and I'll keep taking it until I feel I don't need it in some way, even if it is a small way. Healthpost is always awesome (8
