Endometriosis Info

Endometriosis is a common contributing factor to fertility problems in women. It is a condition where cells from the lining of the uterus appear outside the uterine cavity, triggering inflammatory responses. Endometrial-like cells in areas outside the uterus are influenced by hormonal changes and respond in a way that is similar to the cells found inside the uterus. The lesions associated with endometriosis, bleed at menstruation and can trigger cytokines of the immune system to instigate the inflammatory reaction - recognising these internal uterine cells as foreign. Symptoms can often worsen with the menstrual cycle.

Endometriosis is typically seen during reproductive years; it has been estimated that endometriosis occurs in around 6–10% of women. Symptoms may depend on the site of active endometriosis, the main symptom is pelvic pain - with some sufferers describing the pain as 'gnawing,' 'dragging' and 'throbbing.' 

Endometriosis is common in women with infertility.

As mentioned, endometriosis is a common contributing factor to fertility problems in women. Endometriosis can be treated in a variety of ways. Although medical treatment usually requires surgery and the use of hormones and pain medication, there are effective natural alternatives available including changes to diet, herbs, and nutrient supplementation. Essential fatty acids from fish oil apparently interfere with the production of cytokines and thus have the ability to reduce the faulty inflammation associated with endometriosis. Fish oil may also have a positive impact on other symptoms associated with endometriosis.

Eating cooked brassicas helps reduce oestrogen dominance, an increasingly prevalent factor due to excess consumption of meat and dairy foods plus xenoestrogenic chemical pollution of our living environments. Dietary supplementation with vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene, milk thistle may also be beneficial in treating the symptoms. Furthermore taking magnesium, vitamin B complex and maca root will help soothe. Teas are good too e.g. dandelion and ginger.

  • Not really a coffee substitute

    star

    We were hoping for a more realistic coffee substitute, but the colour and flavour are closer to a light herbal tea, even when using double the recommended amount and letting it steep a while. The other dandelion coffee by this brand contains barley (gluten) which we are removing for health reasons, so we didn't purchase that one. In terms of taste, it has a smokey nutty flavour - top notes of peanut and then the more bitter dandelion taste. Neither of us could taste the "spiciness" from the burdock. We will keep using it for the health benefits to liver tho.

  • Got rid of hormonal trhush

    star

    This has changed my life so much. I used to get hormonal thrush, this is the only thing that has sorted that out. I'm in peri-menopause, this product not only got rid of my hormonal thrush, but also helped me sleep better, calmed me down and also helped with digestion, these things I didn't realise how much I was suffering with them until I started taking it and they were sorted out. I use it in combination with a Liver support.

  • Good Absorbtion Post ileostomy

    star

    I have been using these sublingual drops instead of 3 monthly injections post ileostomy (Crohns).
    Blood tests show my B12 levels are as good on these drops as injections.
    Same cost - lest hassle and, IMHO, a more even delivery. GP quite happy with this approach.
