Holistic Treatment for Endometriosis at the Pain and Brain Healing Center

Holistic Treatment for Endometriosis

The Pain and Brain Healing Center offers a comprehensive approach to endometriosis treatment. Our holistic approach to endometriosis treatment focuses on treating the whole person, not just the symptoms. We use a combination of natural therapies, lifestyle changes, and nutrition to help reduce pain and inflammation associated with endometriosis. A primary treatment is establishing hormone balance utilizing natural bio-identical hormone therapy. Which hormones and what dosage utilized are based on laboratory testing of blood and tissue hormone levels.

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition that affects many women around the world. It is characterized by tissue growth outside of the uterus, resulting in pain and inflammation. Research is now showing the primary underlying cause to be estrogen dominance with a progesterone deficiency in most cases. With any patient this is first verified through lab testing. Conventional medicine treats endometriosis with artificial synthetic hormones, surgery, and medications like ibuprofen and naproxen. However, understanding the side effects of these treatments, many women are looking for holistic treatments to relieve them.

Holistic Treatments through Diet and Exercise

Holistic treatments for endometriosis involve a combination of lifestyle changes and alternative therapies. Diet plays a vital role in managing endometriosis; eating an anti-inflammatory diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help reduce inflammation associated with the condition. Additionally, supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics, antioxidants, and other vitamins and minerals can help to reduce endometriosis symptoms. Again, a major focus of my care is helping my patients achieve hormonal balance, after extensive testing of their hormone levels. Once symptoms are improving, salivary estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and DHEA are retested to insure hormone balance

Exercise is also a component of holistic treatment for endometriosis, as regular physical activity can help improve blood flow and reduce inflammation. Yoga and tai chi are two types of exercise that have been shown to provide relief from endometriosis pain. Stress management techniques such as mindfulness or meditation can also be beneficial, as stress can worsen symptoms.

Traditional Supplements and Practices for Endometriosis Pain

Another popular holistic treatment for endometriosis is through supplements, which involve vitamins, minerals, herbs, but primarily natural bio-identical hormone therapy to relieve pain, inflammation, and symptoms associated with endometriosis. This leads to a correcting of the underlying causes. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce pelvic pain and other symptoms related to the condition.
