Endometriosis is a common condition that involves uterine-like tissue growing in other areas of the body besides the uterus itself, especially in the ovaries. This can cause a lot of different symptoms, including severe pain during or around menstruation, pain while ovulating, when having sex, etc. Women with endometriosis might also experience abdominal bloating, heavy or irregular bleeding, fatigue, and infertility is also common.
There is currently no way to cure endometriosis through conventional medical treatment methods, and the main reason for this is because most medical doctors don’t know what the actual cause of endometriosis is. As a result, they usually just treat the person with pain medication, and they may give some hormonal treatments to reduce the production of estrogen, or in some cases might perform surgery to remove the endometriotic lesions.
What Is The Cause Of Endometriosis?
In order to cure endometriosis, it’s important to understand how this condition develops. In the past I have spoken about a condition called estrogen dominance, which involves an imbalance in the ratios of estrogen and progesterone. Although this can be caused by an excess in estrogen, the most common cause is a deficiency of progesterone.
In any case, estrogen dominance can cause many problems, and endometriosis is potentially one of these conditions that can develop due to this hormone imbalance. Some doctors think that this condition is due to an excess of estrogen, which is the reasoning behind the hormonal injections to reduce the amount of estrogen. But while these injections might help someone who has estrogen dominance due to an excess of estrogen, it won’t help women who have a progesterone deficiency, which is the problem with many people.
So rather than just randomly giving women with endometriosis hormone injections or performing surgery, it makes sense to at least try to determine the actual cause of the condition. And our friend, the Female Hormone Panel, will frequently reveal a hormone imbalance that has caused this condition to develop. So whenever I see a patient who has endometriosis, this is the first step I recommend in trying to determine what the actual cause is. If the test shows a progesterone deficiency, then I recommend a certain protocol for the patient. On the other hand, if excess estrogen is the culprit, then I’ll recommend a completely different protocol. And if estrogen dominance isn’t the cause, then this of course will be ruled out as a cause and I’ll need to do some additional detective work!
This is just further proof of how most medical doctors don’t use common sense, not only with endometriosis, but with most other conditions as well. After all, this condition doesn’t just spontaneously develop. The fact that it only happens in cycling women is a big hint that it has something to do with hormones. So it just make sense to begin with a hormone panel to confirm that there is an imbalance of hormones, and give us the necessary information to correct it.
Dealing With Endometriosis And Infertility
Since infertility is such a common problem, you might wonder whether providing a cure for endometriosis through natural treatment methods will correct the infertility problem and allow the woman to get pregnant. In many cases following a protocol to cure endometriosis will indeed also correct the infertility problem. Obviously there are no guarantees with any type of treatment, but since a natural treatment protocol is non-invasive and has a high level of success, in my opinion this should be the first option. Then if all else fails you can of course always choose to receive the conventional medical treatment.
In summary, if you or someone you know has endometriosis, you might want to consider following a natural treatment protocol. If you have already started receiving medical treatment then that’s fine, as you can always switch to natural treatment methods. As usual, just try to keep an open mind and realize that there is a cause of endometriosis, and by determining the cause, in most cases this condition can be cured.
