Did you know that in the month of March, people all over the globe are talking about endometriosis?


It’s all about awareness! There are millions upon millions of women who suffer from a “difficult period” in virtual silence. Many of these women have endometriosis. Endometriosis can have a devastating effect on women’s lives with the pain that it brings; it is also the biggest cause of infertility in women. It is estimated that 10% of women have endometriosis.


What is endometriosis? Essentially it is a condition where the tissue that makes the lining of the uterus is found in places other than the uterus. When this tissue is somewhere it is not supposed to be, it causes lesions, scarring, and adhesions. All of these things cause pain and distortion in the integrity of the internal organs.


There is no western medical cure for endometriosis, just case management. In Eastern medicine, we have a slightly different opinion. Endometriosis is a condition of stagnated uterine blood that doesn’t flow freely. The menstrual blood has somehow become obstructed.  This blood has become silty, old, and oxidized. Our neuroendocrine system is highly sensitive and starts to respond. And in simplistic terms over time, it becomes a toxic mess and as a result, the rest of the body responds to that toxic messy obstruction.


Luckily, endometriosis responds very well to Chinese medicine. Acupuncture, herbs, and nutrition can truly turn the condition around and start to give you significant relief. Given time and the proper treatment, menstruation will improve and the body will see a shift. At which point, we will start to see the psycho-neuro-endocrinologic system that will settle down. Most menstrual problems can be treated by Chinese medicine within three to six months.


However, the duration of therapy depends to some extent on the length of time the disease process has been in motion. In general, patients should expect it to take at least one month of treatment for every year there has been some problem with their period or in their pelvis in general.
