Endometriosis and Ayurveda

As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycleby building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Ayurveda is a traditional medication that has been used in India for over thousands of years. It is another type of alternative medicine used in some parts of South Asia.

Ayurveda means life and science. It is one of the oldest alternative medicine originated from India. Its treatment technique aims to bring the balance of the body back, so it can heal itself.
After initial consultation and diagnosis, here are some common treatments that have been used in treating endometriosis.

1. Detoxifying
If diagnosis determines that endometriosis is caused by toxins within the body, detoxification may be applied to restore the body back to balance by getting rid of those unwanted substances.

2. Weaken immunity
If endometriosis is caused by the weakening of the immune system, patient may be given herbs in the form of pills, jellies, powders, or tonics to boost immunity levels and to stimulate the patient's appetite to eat food that help to boost immunity.

3. Blood stagnation
If blood stagnation is the cause of endometriosis, then the technique of drawing out stagnation of blood may be used
a) Hot stone therapy
The technique that penetrates heat deep into tissues to draw out blood.
b) Gua sha therapy
A technique that helps to draw blood from the surface using suction cups
c) Maxabusion therapy

4. Massage
Massage is a very important form of treatment for women with menstrual pain. By applying the premix Ayurvedic oil on the abdominal region and gentle massage until the oil dips into the skin it is said to reduce muscle spasms. Daily massage is very important for opening the channels, stimulating the digestion, removing toxins from the body and strengthening the immune system.
