What is Endometriosis? Enter the world of one of the most common gynaecological diseases found in women today, and yet still awareness of this debilitating condition is very much low on the list of priorities worldwide, and as yet no cure has been found. Because of the limitations of Conventional Medicine, more and more women are turning to Complementary Therapies, allowing them to take control of their bodies and life again.
For many years now, millions of women have visited the doctor with various distressing symptoms, desperate for an answer to their problems, to be told its 'just cramps', and part of being a woman. This has left women waiting for years in pain and discomfort, feeling helpless, not knowing where to turn, before the condition is correctly and eventually diagnosed and treated, by which time the disease has caused significant damage leading to infertility.
Endometriosis is the second most common gynaecological disorder worldwide. It is non-malignant and oestrogen dependant with many debilitating symptoms of • Pelvic Pain of varying degrees • Heavy menstrual bleeding which can include large clots • Fatigue • Painful bowel movements • Pain during and after sexual intercourse • Bloating • Nausea/Vomiting • Digestive disturbances • Depression/Anxiety • Infertility
It's characterised by the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, affecting the ovaries, bowel, bladder and other areas of the body, and behaving in the same way as it would in the uterus.
There are several theories regarding the causes of endometriosis, but despite years of intensive research, the causes of it are still unknown, and as yet there is no cure.
The Conventional Treatments available can reduce symptoms of endometriosis, improve quality of life, and in many cases restore fertility. Some of these can also have their side-effects. There are also many avenues to explore using Complementary Therapies, which can treat the whole person, leaving the woman more in control of the situation, with more confidence and knowledge to seek and achieve what is needed to regain full health.
