Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb (the endometrium) is found outside the womb. These pieces of tissue can be found in many different areas of the body, including:

  1. The ovaries and fallopian tubes
  2. Outside the womb
  3. The lining of the inside of the abdomen
  4. The bowel or bladder
ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis is a common health problem in women. It is a common cause of severe recurring pain in women. One in every 5 women belonging to 13 to 45 age group suffer from endometriosis. Yet, it is not uncommon in women after menopause. In endometriosis, the endometrium being situated elsewhere in the body is unable to exit the body. Nevertheless, it proliferates and cyclically, the bleeding also occurs, but into the body cavity wherein it is situated. The endometrium detaches itself, and remains shed within the cavity. The shed materials consist of degraded blood and tissues, which are sufficient to cause irritation and often severe pain in the affected area. Endometriosis depending upon its location can even affect the normal functions of organs like bladder, bowels and the intestines.

CAUSES OF ENDOMETRIOSIS

The real cause of endometriosis remains unknown but some theories have been suggested:

  1. Excessive production of estrogen which is a major sex hormone in women
  2. Metaplasia, a condition in which the endometrial tissue spontaneously starts growing in a location by replacing the native tissue cells of that site
  3. Retrograde menstruation, a condition where some amount of the normal menstrual fluid flows back into the pelvis
  4. Genetic predisposition is another factor worth considering as women with first degree relatives suffering from endometriosis are 5 times more susceptible to endometriosis themselves

SYMPTOMS OF ENDOMETRIOSIS

The most common presentation is pelvic pain. Largely, the pains are timed with the occurrence of the menstrual cycle though it can certainly occur at other times. These pains vary in nature, though commonly they are severe, crampy and spasmodic. These can cause nausea and vomiting also

Pain may be felt:

  1. Before/during/after menstruation, progressively these pains become worse with every cycle
  2. During ovulation, i.e. around 14 days before the onset of the menstrual cycle
  3. In the bowel during menstruation
  4. When passing urine
  5. During or after sexual intercourse
  6. In the lower back region
  7. Heavy, excessive menstrual bleeding
  8. Nausea and vomiting

COMPLICATIONS

Endometriosis can lead to:

  1. Infertility (commonest complication seen in most women)
  2. Adenomyosis
  3. Chocolate cyst of ovaries
  4. Pelvic adhesions
  5. Ovarian carcinoma
  6. Bowel adhesions (if endometriotic patches are present in parts of the bowel)

The sooner you begin treatment for Endometriosis, the better are chances of recovery.

HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT

Most doctors commonly agree that laparoscopic surgery is the only definitive method of diagnosing endometriosis. Homeopathy has its time-tested usefulness. Drugs used in endometriosis are geared towards altering the activity of the ovaries and therefore slow down the growth of the endometrial tissue.

Homeopathic treatment is targeted towards UPROOTING THE DISEASE and ensuring health with no side effects. For prescribing to an individual, a PLAN OF TREATMENT is followed which involves:

  1. GETTING THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF CASE which includes complete case taking (analyzing patient as an individual) along with patient history and family history
  2. DIAGNOSIS OF PATIENT AND DISEASE
  3. INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENT OF THE CASE
  4. PRESCRIBING THE MOST SUITABLE INDIVIDUALĀ CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDY
