Ayurvedic Treatment of Endometriosis
Ayurvedic treatment for endometriosis is the safest way to get relief from the symptoms of endometriosis like heavy bleeding and severe pelvic pain etc. The herbal Ayurvedic treatment has proven its efficacy in contrast to NSAIDS and hormonal therapy, which are widely used for treating endometriosis.
The internal lining of the Uterus is made up of special cells called endometrial cells. These cells are discarded every month during menstruation. Sometimes these cells attach to the tissue, which is present outside the uterus called endometrial implants. These implants leads to an unbearable condition called endometriosis. The endometrial implants can be found on fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, vagina, urinary bladder and rarely in lungs, old scars and liver. These endometrial implants react in response to hormonal changes and leads to bleeding as menses, which prolongs the menstrual flow with heavy clots.
Endometriosis affects most of the women in their reproductive age. The cause of infertility is endometriosis in 25-35 % females. About 30-45% of cases painful menses are because of endometriosis. The endometriosis is characterized by pain in lower abdomen and uncontrolled bleeding which prolongs for a longer time. Endometriosis is rare in postmenopausal females. Studies reveal that endometriosis is common in taller and thin females with a low BMI.
Causes of Endometriosis
The exact cause of endometriosis is unidentified. But some theories suggest possibilities of these underlying cause:-
- Unprogressive menstruation
- Abnormal growth of embryonic cells
- Transportation of endometrial cell through blood or lymphatic
- Loss in immunity
- Endometrial cell implantation while surgery
- History of endometriosis in family
- Toxins in the environment leads an imbalance in hormones
Classical Symptoms of Endometriosis
- Mild to severe pain in pelvic region
- Painful menses
- Irregular menses
- Heavy menstrual periods
- Menstrual blood contains big blood clots
- Spotting before menses
- Pain during sex
- Increase in urinary frequency

The hormonal replacement therapy and NSAIDS are mostly used as a treatment for endometriosis by doctors but Ayurvedic approach for the treatment of endometriosis includes balancing doshas to achieve normal menstrual cycle and relax mind.
According to Ayurveda, all the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) are involved in endometriosis. Vata is the most common factor responsible for gynecological disorders. The vitiated Vata displaces endometrial cells from their actual location in uterus to outside. Pain in menses due to endometriosis is also a contribution of vata. The changes in hormone levels, blood flow and any inflammation in endometrium points towards vitiated pitta. Kapha is responsible for overgrowth of endometrial cells.
