What are different home remedies for treating Endometriosis? – Part 1

What is meant by Endometriosis?

• Endometriosis is a condition that affects the reproductive system and pelvic area of a woman’s body.
• Endometriosis is associated with the menstrual cycle and the hormones that trigger menstruation.
• The disease begins when little particles that resemble the uterus lining build towards the pelvic cavity.
• These particles start functioning like the lining of the uterus known as endometrium.
• The endometrium responds to the hormones in the body and prepares by accumulating blood cells and other important chemicals every month for a possible pregnancy.
• If pregnancy does not take place, the blood is shed through the menstrual period.
• The particles that travel to the pelvic cavity also function and start reacting to hormones in the same way.
• The blood that is shed from these growths cannot leave the body which can lead to internal bleeding and inflammation.
• This can go on for months and even for years before symptoms of pain and discomfort start to be noticed.
• Many women experience worsening pain during menstruation during this phase.
