Endometriosis: Symptoms. Treatments and remedies. Natural Medicine

Definition of Endometriosis
Endometriosis is the presence of abnormal growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, or in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, ligaments, bowel and bladder. Sometimes growth penetrates into the tissue of these structures. However, less frequently, this fabric can enter coelomic metaplasia migration to other locations such as the lung, heart, brain, eyes, elbow or knee. Once this has been implanted endometrial tissue responds to the natural hormone cycle, and then begin their bleeding into the body cavity, and, as it lacks a drainage path, often causes inflammation, pain and infertility.

Symptoms and theories about the origin of endometriosis
There are many theories about the cause of endometriosis, although some are controversial. Among the theories of the origin of endometriosis is found:
* 1 .- The theory of implementation (retrograde menstruation)
* 2 .- The embolic theory (lymph-vascular).
* 3 .- the coelomic metaplasia
* 4 .- And mixed theories.

Nobody dares to explain why is this disease and why some women experience pain while others do not feel any pain.

Among all women can manifest a wide range of symptoms.

The most common symptoms are:
* Pain before and during menstrual periods (more acute than menstrual cramps).
* The pains of ovulation.
* The pain during or after intercourse.
* The possible infertility and heavy bleeding or irregular.

Other symptoms reported by women include:
Fatigue, depression, painful urination and defecation, lower back pain during menstruation, diarrhea, constipation and intestinal disorders. Some women with endometrial growths visible not suffer pain, sometimes with an occasional small focus of proliferation, suffering crippling pain.

Research conducted at the University of Chicago have shown that women have to wait an average of ten years before being diagnosed because their symptoms are generally attributed to exaggeration and are rejected, underestimated or ignored by general practitioners.

In accordance with most authors, endometriosis attacks between 7.5% and 10% of the population of menstruating women, although it has been estimated between 4% and 17% of this population. Endometriosis is often characterized as a disease most commonly suffered by white women of the middle class and middle-aged. This data has been published in the British Medical Journal in 1980, although the evidence supporting this claim comes mainly from clinical experience rather than research carried out, so they remain contradictions between them.

Endometriosis and Infertility
Endometriosis has been associated with infertility. Investigations carried out have resulted in 30% to 70% of women investigated for infertility are suffering from endometriosis, and 30% to 40% of these patients are unable to conceive. Although for a long time has been estimated as infertility caused by endometriosis, there is no conclusive evidence that endometriosis is actually the cause of infertility, and is not the only cause of pelvic pain.

We must conduct more research in this field, to get to discover whether women with endometriosis have certain sub-clinical deficiencies in common.

Endometriosis and Nutrition
Since each person is unique, in addition to endometriosis produces different effects on each woman, child would raise the conclusion that a treatment can be sought relief or cure all patients with endometriosis.

Cellular Biochemistry is dependent on nutritional status, and this aspect of endometriosis has been generally neglected in most studies.

Good nutrition is the first step of each day that each individual has to give with a view to their own control in order to feel responsible for achieving optimal health status. One of the most common complaints in women with endometriosis is the overwhelming feeling of lack of control over one's body and life, which provokes a mixture of anger and frustration, with desperation and lack of motivation.

Nutrition can and should play a leading role in supporting their own management and curative treatment. The medical profession as being carried at this time the focus on women with endometriosis, makes no assessment of nutrition for the individual patient, and not worry about identifying the problems of the patient regarding malabsorption of nutrients and depletion of the routes of enzyme systems.

Endometriosis is perhaps a facet faceted metabolic etiology, when is the consequence of failure of an enzyme or a hormone, due to poor nutrition or genetic defect.

Endometriosis, Infertility and Nutrition
There is an endocrine mechanism that causes females of all mammalian species become infertile when food availability is inadequate. If this mechanism is abolished by injection of a drug or hormone, there is a high risk of generating weak animals, low birthweight and to undermine the health of the female.

It has been suggested that in all efforts to promote fertility risks of promoting the fertilization of eggs defective, and that, as suggested by research conducted at the University of Sydney, "the medication should be removed for not less 6 months while the disorderly conduct intakes or exercise habits have not been properly assessed and treated.

Endometriosis and hormone drugs
This facet of endometriosis could be considered similarly in cases where women take hormone drugs for 6-9 months and then are told to conceive as soon as possible while endometriosis seems to be more or less controlled. Many women may be receiving inadequate nutritional intake for optimal reproductive function. Proper nutrition is probably one of the prerequisites of fertility and, with the average diet of some of the women of our time, which is high in sugar, fat and starch and is not balanced by sufficient intakes of vitamins and minerals (fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and whole grains) is not generating the most desirable effects within the endocrine system to prepare the ovaries with a view to a pregnancy.

Endometriosis, supplements and nutrition
The correction of sub-clinical deficiencies of certain combinations of nutrients could be a most useful support for the restoration of fertility and to reduce pain and inflammation by natural means. Good nutrition also helps to stabilize immune system function, which is probably of vital importance for women with endometriosis.

Among the nutritional supplements that have supported women with endometriosis highlight:
B vitamins, in particular: Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), pyridoxine (B6)
Minerals: Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium.
Polyunsaturated fatty acids: Evening Primrose Oil.
