Medical Herablists often work with women who suffer from endometriosis. Generally a full consultation is advised to assess which herbs would be most suited to each patient, however there are a few herbs that are often found to be useful and can be tried before seeing a practitioner:
Endometriosis is a gynaecological condition in which cells from the endometrium (the lining of the uterus), are found outside the uterine cavity – most commonly in the pelvis, fallopian tubes, ovaries, bowel and bladder, and sometimes in the lungs, heart, eyes, knees and armpits.
Wherever it grows, the uterine tissue responds to female hormones by growing during every cycle and bleeding during menstruation. The fluid in the tissue results in pain, inflammation, cysts and scar tissue. This can be a serious and very debilitating condition.
