Ayurvedic Treatment of Endometriosis

It is a painful condition in which the tissue that lines the endometrium grows outside the uterus. It affects 176 million women worldwide. If it is not diagnosed properly which leads to various complications. Modern medicine has no treatment for this painful disease. They treat this condition by prescribing birth control pills and by hormonal treatments. Hormonal treatment includes the therapy to supress the body’s production of estrogen. There are number of drugs which work by reducing the production of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Leutinising hormone (LH). One such drug is Danazol which works similar to Testosterone. It works by reducing FSH and LH levels if taken for 6-9 months but this therapy has various side effects like- pseudomenopause, hot flushes, growth of hair on skin, vaginal dryness, hoarseness of voice, joint pains etc. It generally affects women between the age group of 24-45 years. Endometriosis is one of the main reason of uterus removal (hysterctomy) in women. There is no cure available but if healthy lifestyle is followed alongwith herbal treatment symptoms of disease can be managed.

It should be understood that this disease is different from cancer. Endometrial growths are not malignant, it is just a normal tissue growing outside but unlike the lining of uterus, the growth outside the uterus finds no way of leaving the body which results in internal bleeding, inflammation and scarring. These lesions first appear as clear vesicles, then become red and then progress to black over a period of years. Sometimes endrometric cysts are formed which are known as benign tumors but women may face difficulty in conceiving.

Ayurvedic Approach to Endometriosis

According to Ayurveda, Endometriosis is a result of imbalance of all three doshas in body namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It is a Sannipatika condition according to Ayurveda. It is mainly a Kapha problem but due to the involvement of blood and hormones, it becomes Pitta problem also. Vata is responsible for movement in the body. Hence, it is a problem of vitiated Vata too.

According to Ayurveda, it results due to formation of Ama (toxins). As a result of toxin formation in the body, the natural defences are lowered and biological rhythms are disrupted. This disease can be corrected by regulating digestive fire (Jatharagni), ensuring proper elimination and by balancing the mind. Various Ayurvedic medicines like- ChanderprabhaVati, KachanaarGuggul, Pradarantakchurna etc. are very useful.
