Endometriosis and Natural Fertility
Endometriosis is a complex fertility issue believed to affect roughly 176 million women; that’s an estimated 10% of women worldwide. It is important to understand how and why endometriosis happens and how to support the body naturally to achieve optimal fertility.
Endometriosis risk factors vary and the exact cause isn’t completely understood, yet we know that for many, endometriosis can impair reproductive wellness and inhibit optimal fertility health. There are medical treatment options, which do help many women. There are also natural therapy options for addressing the symptoms and underlying causes related to hormonal imbalance that may be helpful in preparation for, after, or in lieu of medical treatments.
It is important to support the body’s natural ability to remove excess estrogen from the body (estrogen stimulates endometrial growth), help to maintain the body’s natural inflammatory response, try to relieve occasional discomfort in the reproductive system, encourage normal circulation, helping to bring fresh blood and oxygen to the reproductive system and aid the body’s natural ability to break down fibrin (tissue that makes up scar tissue). Diet, lifestyle changes, and natural therapies, along with herbs and nutritional supplements have the potential to do all of these things and more.
