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.

  • Great for skin and weight

    star

    I have been using this DIM supplement for about 3 weeks now. I started it mid cycle so I am not sure how much effect it had on my last period. What I can definitely attribute to this supplement are the changes in my skin. It has cleared up 95% and is soft and supple almost velvety! My midsection seems to be trimming down as well. As far as my moods go, I also take Thompson's Vitex, so I think they work well together. I started out by taking only 1 pill per day for the first 2 weeks and had no side effects other than pinky/orange pee!

  • Great Product

    star

    I would not be without my B12 sublingual drops.

    I have been using this product for a year now. Within the first week of taking one drop a day, I noticed the difference in my lack of fatigue, alertness, and memory. My mind is as sharp at the end of the day, as it is in the morning.

    I am completely amazed that "one drop a day" can do so much.

    I will use this product until the day I die.

    Thank you so much!
