General Endometriosis Information
Endometriosis is a chronic, progressive disease wherein cells that resemble those that line the uterus are found in other areas of the pelvis. These abnormal cells can attach to the ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer surface of the uterus, bowels or other areas of the body. The misplaced tissue develops into growths or lesions that respond to the menstrual cycle in the same way the uterine lining does. As hormones are released during the menstrual cycle, the lesions can swell and bleed, which causes scar tissue to form around the site. Because endometrial tissue develops outside of the uterus it has no way of leaving the body, thus the tissue and blood waste builds up in the abdominal cavity and may attach itself to the ovaries or bowel causing severe pain.

An estimated 5 to 7 million American women suffer from endometriosis. Endometriosis usually affects women during their reproductive years and is a common cause of infertility.

Possible Causes of Endometriosis
The cause of endometriosis is not known. Some experts believe that menstrual fluid backs up into the fallopian tube and drops into the peritoneal cavity where the cells implant and grow. Others believe the endometrial cells spread through the blood and lymphatic channels. Other possible causes include heredity, excess estrogen and exposure to environmental polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and dioxin. It is believed that vulnerability to endometriosis may run in families.

Possible Symptoms of Endometriosis
The symptoms of endometriosis include pelvic pain, infertility, blood in the stool and blood following intercourse. These symptoms vary widely from woman to woman. Some experience little to no pain, while others suffer excruciating pain in the pelvic region. Severity of pain is usually tied to the size and location of the lesions, which can continue to develop and seed new growths. Lesions may attach to multiple organs, pulling them together and causing even more pain, especially during pregnancy. Cysts may form on the ovaries which contain oxidized (decomposed) blood. As these cysts rupture they cause excruciating pain. In most cases, pain begins just prior to menstruation and abates after menstrual flow begins. Some women experience pain continuously with no ties to the menstrual cycle.

Most women who have Endometriosis have never been pregnant, and as many as 40 percent of women with infertility problems have endometriosis. Many of these women do not seek medical attention because their symptoms are mistaken for normal menstrual discomfort. Many women who develop endometriosis have a greater history of yeast infections, hay fever, eczema, and food sensitivities.

Endometrial growths are usually benign (not cancerous), yet it is believed that women with endometriosis are at greater risk of developing breast cancer, melanoma, lymphoma and ovarian cancer.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Endometriosis
There is no way to prevent endometriosis, but home treatment can ease the pain of the disease. Women who suffer from endometriosis are advised to apply a heating pad to the lower abdominal area to relieve pain and increase circulation during painful periods. Exercise regularly and use relaxation techniques to lower stress. Sometimes sexual activity can help ease the pain, but in some cases, intercourse can make symptoms worse.

Beneficial Dietary Supplements
Vitamin E helps hormonal balance.

Inositol and Choline help the liver process and remove estrogen. Estrogen at high levels is thought to stimulate endometriosis.

Soy Isoflavones help the body excrete estrogen.

Progesterone helps reduce the effect of excess estrogen by blocking receptor sites and balances the levels of estrogen and progesterone in your body. Use in cream form.

Chaste Berry and Dong Quai help balance the hormones that may be responsible for the spread of endometrial tissue and increased endometrial pain.

Wild Yam helps the body balance hormone levels.

Evening Primrose Oil, Flax Seed Oil and Borage Oil regulate hormonal and prostaglandin balance.

Saw Palmetto with Nettle can block the action of follicle-stimulating hormone that helps increase endometrial tissue.

Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids is one of the most important vitamins for immune function. Bioflavonoids help relax smooth muscle and to prevent inflammation.

Alfalfa is a good source of vitamin K (which is necessary for blood clotting and healing) and needed minerals, including iron.
