Nowadays, gynecological problems are becoming common. One of the common problems is termed as endometriosis. It affects 10 to 20 percent of women of childbearing age worldwide.

 

 

What is Endometriosis?

 

 

Every month ovaries produces hormones that cause swelling and thickening of endometrium (mucus cells linings) of the uterus. The uterus sheds these mucous membranous cells along with menstrual blood through the vagina during the menstruation. When endometrium grows outside of the uterus, it results in the endometriosis.

 

 

The presence of endometrium (uterine mucous membrane) outside the lining of uterus is known endometriosis. It causes painful periods and premenstrual pain.

 

 

Causes of Endometriosis

 

 

The exact cause of the this problem is not known, but the following several factors may play a role in development of this disease.

 

 

  • Endometrial cells may flow back to pelvic cavity rather than out of the body. It is known as retrograde menstruation. The endometrial cells may stick to the surface of the pelvic area or organs. They can grow there and cause endometriosis.
  • After C-section or hysterectomy, endometrial cells may stick to a surgical incision, which cause surgical scar implantation of endometrial cells in other pelvic area.
  • Immune system malfunction may also cause growth of endometrial cells outside the uterus.

 

 

Endometriosis Treatment in Ayuevda

 

 

Endometriosis is caused by aggravation of Kapha humor, according to ayurveda. However, other two humors (Vata & Pitta) may be associated with the occurrence of this disease, but the dominant humor is Kapha.

 

 

Kapha dosha controls the endometrial tissue growth in the uterus and Pitta controls the uterine blood flow and menstrual cycle. Vata controls the hormonal functions through the brain by stimulation of hormone production. Pain in endometriosis is due to the Vata humor.

 

Derangement in natural functions of three humors causes endometriosis, as per ayurvedic science.

 

In modern science,there is no effective treatment for this disease, but ayurvedic medicines can definitely help to treat this disease.

 

Symptoms of Endometriosis

 

Pelvic pain is the main symptom of this disease. The occurrence of the pelvic pain may be linked with the menstrual period. Often women with endometriosis experience abdominal pain before and during the menstruation.

 

The following are the symptoms that appears:

 

  1. Painful periods
  2. Pelvic pain may commence several days before periods and may exist after menstrual period.
  3. Cramps

In endometriosis, it helps by preventing the abnormal growth of the tissue outside the uterus without disturbing the natural function of hormones and process of menstruation.

 

Yashtimadhu(Glycyrrhiza glabra)

 

Yastimadhu, or Indian licorice is highly effective in reducing uterine bleeding and inflammation. It works by reducing its symptoms of the disease and balancing hormone levels in the body. It also reduces pain associated with endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disease.

 

Amalaki (Phyllanthus emblica)

 

Amalaki is used to balance Pitta and Kapha humors. In endometriosis, pitta causes excessive bleeding and aggravation of kapha results in growth of the endometrium outside the uterus. In addition to these, amalaki is very nutritious fruit rice in vitamin C. It enhances proper liver functions, corrects food absorption, nourishes the brain and supports the heart.

 

Shatavari (Indian asparagus)

 

Indian asparagus is a great herb used in ayurvedic medicine for a variety of diseases. It is a friend of women suffering from Dysmenorrhea, infertility, nutritional deficiencies, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory diseases, excessive uterine bleeding and other hormonal problems.

 

A research published by Santish Kumar et al mentions about the uses of shatavari.

Shatavari has many organic chemical compounds like steroidal saponins, glycosides, alkaloids, polysaccharides, mucilage, racemosol and isoflavones that possess a wide range of medicinal properties.

 

Ashoka (Saraca indica)

 

Ashoka is used in excessive uterine bleeding and pain associated with various gynecological diseases. In endometriosis, it is very effective remedy to reduce bleeding, alleviate pain and stop abnormal growth of tissue. These actions of Ashoka bark are due to the presence of certain Tannin and Catechol. These alkaloids helps balancing the woman hormones and rectifies their functions in the body.

 

A case study presented by Neelam Kumari Singh highlights the uses of ashokarishtha, an ayurvedic tonic in the treatment of fibroids. Ashokarishtha was administered besides other medicines and a significant relief was observed in the condition of the patient. It contains the bark of Saraca asoca that reduces the uterine bleeding due to its astringent and uterine sedative effects which may be due to the presence of haematoxylin. It is effective in fibroids for clearing the congestion from excess kapha and aama (free radicals, tonixs and by- products) in artavavaha srotas (reproductive tract). As the bark contains ketosterols, it treats the uterine fibroids.

 

Daruharidra (Berberis aristrata)

 

Daruharidra contains berberine and isoquinoline alkaloids. These alkaloids possess antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant, anti-tumor and anti-diabetic properties. Furthermore, daruharidra stops uterine bleeding and reduces pain. Thus, it is an effective remedy for endometriosis.

 

Lodhra (Symplocos racemosa)

 

Likewise, daruhridra lodhra works to stop bleeding that occurs due to endometriosis. It is also helpful for women with leucorrhoea and pelvic inflammatory disease.

 

Arjun (Terminalia arjuna)

 

However, arjun is known for its heart protective actions. But it is also beneficial in other diseases such as osteoporosis, joint pain and arthritis. In endometriosis, it is effective due to presence of tannins like Ashoka. It also reduces bleeding and provides strength to the pelvic organ.
