In Ayurveda, endometriosis has been named as ‘Udaavartinee’, which defines endometriosis as painful menstruation and presence of painful and delayed menstruation flow and retrograde menstruation. Retrograde menstruation is believed to be a cause of endometriosis.

Ayurveda states that ‘Vata’ governs all movements in the mind and body. Vata controls the blood flow, elimination of waste products, breathing and momentum of thoughts in the mind. Thus, balancing the Vata inside the body restores the proper functioning of vital organs and treatment of endometriosis.

Vata is, further, subdivided into many forms and amongst them ‘Apanavata’ is particularly responsible for the downward flow of blood (menstruation) and excretory function. Abnormal functioning of Apanavata, affects the flow of blood (Pitta) and disturbs the Kapha (reproductive tissue). The disturbance in Kapha leads into the displacement of endometrial tissue.

Thus, the leading form of energy causing the endometriosis is tackled first. In Ayurveda, for Endometriosis treatment, ‘Ushna therapy and medication’ is recommended, which increases the metabolism in Vata and Kapha. Furthermore, ‘Gulma’ treatments is prescribed for gas, bloating, constipation and delayed periods. Pitta treatments can be applied, in case of excessive bleeding and burning sensation.
