Chinese Medicine to Treat Endometriosis and Fibroids
Endometriosis and Fibroids - Infertility Factors
What do endometriosis and fibroids have in common? They both have their place in preventing conception and both are responsive to estrogen fluctuations. There is no western cure for either, except hysterectomy. Eastern medicine, however gives them a common denominator – they are both considered processes of inhibited stagnated uterine blood which doesn’t flow freely. The menstruation has become blocked and the normal process has become obstructed. Women with either of these conditions often experience a sediment-like menstrual flow with dark, brown, clotted blood which has been allowed to oxidize. The rest of the body responds and the immune system reacts to this silty, old blood. Our neuroendocrine awareness is heightened. Remember, our body’s immunologic priority is to keep us safe from external or internal insults. It recognizes the toxic state and mounts chemicals to clean up this debris. It knows that a fetus won’t survive in this environment.
Luckily, both conditions respond very well to Chinese medicine. Given time and the proper treatment, the blood flow will improve, the sediment will clear, and the body will overcome its immunologic protective mechanisms. Our psycho-neuro-endocrinologic system will settle down. Our body can relax and allow conception to take place.
