Obesity occurs due to the aggravated kapha dosha. Kapha dosha in responsible to maintain the body weight by building up nutritive fluids, blood, fats and bone marrow.

Is There Any Natural Cure For Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a painful disorder in which the tissue that normally lines inside of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus. This condition commonly involves ovaries, fallopian tubes and tissue lining the pelvis. In some cases, endometrial tissue may spread beyond pelvic organs. As a result, the displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would i.e. it thickens, breaks and bleeds with each menstrual cycle.

The displaced tissue finds no way to exit from the body therefore  it becomes trapped. When there is involvement of ovaries, cysts called endometriomas are formed. The surrounding tissue can also becomes irritated which eventually forms scars and adhesions(abnormal bands of fibrous tissue  that may cause pelvic organs and tissues to stick to each other).

Women with endometriosis typically describe menstrual pain that is far worse than usual and they become fed up by taking painkillers for the same. Now the question arises that Is there any natural cure for Endometriosis? The answer is obviously “YES”. Modern medicine involves chemical treatment due to which the condition of females in such cases become more worse but thanks to Mother Nature as Nature has provided us with so many herbs.

The correct use of these herbs and by consulting a well qualified Ayurvedic physician can help a woman to restore her health without any side effects at all.

Endometriosis According To Ayurveda

According to Ayurveda, the root causes of all chronic diseases including Endometriosis occur due to the formation of “Ama” toxins that begin to accumulate in the tissues and start disrupting the delicate balance of the tissues. The toxins thus build up can also obstruct the channels of circulation. As a result, blockage develops which further prevents the proper nutrition from reaching the tissues and also prevents the removal of tissue waste.

In Endometriosis, the process of tissue formation on the uterus, its stability before and after menstruation and elimination of waste products to stimulate fresh tissue gets compromised.

All the three doshas—Vata, Pitta and Kapha are involved in this condition as painful nature of Endometriosis is attributed to Vata. Inflammatory nature of the disease is attributed to Pitta dosha and Kapha is responsible for the overgrowth like—tumor. So, endometriosis is a result of vitiation of all the three doshas according to Ayurveda.
