7 Naturopathic Medicines That Help Endometriosis

It’s March, which means it’s National Endometriosis Month. Did you know that there are 7 naturopathic medicines that can help endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a painful inflammatory disease where tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — called the endometrium — grows on the outside of your uterus. It is a common cause of infertility, painful periods, and sex.

It is not only important to reduce inflammation. It is equally important, to improve immune function and hormone levels while battling endometriosis.

Herbal Medicines

Here is a list of 7 naturopathic medicines that can help endometriosis:

  1. Peppermint

Peppermint has been shown to have antioxidant properties, which can reduce pelvic pain for people who have endometriosis.

  1. Curcumin

Curcumin, which is a primary ingredient in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin can suppress tissue migration of the lining of the uterus and help reduce symptoms of endometriosis.

  1. Chamomile

Drinking chamomile tea can help with endometriosis symptoms, and it can also suppress the growth of endometrial cells.

  1. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha significantly reduces stress, which helps women with endometriosis lower their stress levels.

  1. Lavender

The use of lavender oil in aromatherapy can help reduce severe cramps triggered by endometriosis.

  1. Green Tea

Drinking green tea has been said to show a significant reduction in symptoms of endometriosis.

  1. Castor Oil

Massaging castor oil directly to the abdominal area can help the body get rid of excess tissues and relax the pelvic muscles. Castor oil has been used to treat endometriosis for hundreds of years.
