Alternative and natural treatments for endometriosis are obtaining excellent results in actively assisting healing or reducing symptoms for many sufferers. There are more and more success stories coming forward of women who have achieved partial or complete healing using natural treatments.

Holistic Medicine

Many of the alternative and natural therapies deal with the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of health, in addition to the physical body. This is where natural treatments have a huge benefit for women with Endometriosis - because this disease affects the whole person, not just the body.

The name ‘Holistic Medicine’ comes from the connection between mind and body. Holistic practitioners treat the whole person as opposed to the individual organs where symptoms occur.

Alternative or natural medicine is made up of a rich variety of techniques and medical systems that for the most part, are still unfamiliar to many people.

Most people want a 'quick fix' to treat their illness but unfortunately most drug treatment simply masks the symptoms, and does not treat the disease. This is true of the drug treatments offered for endometriosis.  

Whereas  natural treatments will get to the root cause of illness.  This is usually done by helping to support the immune system, and treating endometriosis with natural therapies also aims to support the immune system.

'It is interesting to note that many women have retrograde menstruation but the immune system will mop up these stray cells.  But it appears that for some women this process does not happen and endometriosis can develop'

What is the difference between natural and main-stream medicine?

Generally speaking, most high quality alternative medicine is founded on six core principles and practices that differ from the principles and historical practices of conventional medicine. They are:

  • The healing power of nature first, and technique and technology second
  • Patient centered rather than physician centered
  • Do no harm - many alternative medical systems are rooted in the principle of ‘always use the least drastic harmful therapies first’. This means that alternative medical providers, in general, choose techniques and therapies which are the least invasive or harmful to get the desired result
  • Results generally take longer - but this ensures long term health and not a quick fix it
  • Use of natural and whole substances
  • Higher standard of health

Fortunately the interest of alternative or natural medicine is gaining interest especially as so many drug treatments cause serious side-effects. All the drug treatments for endometriosis cause a wide range of side effects, and some of these can be permanent.

Natural treatments can help with endometriosis in various ways:

  • Acupuncture has great results in helping with pain management as well as aiding healing
  • Homeopathy can support the immune system and help with the healing process and can address many problems caused by endometriosis
  • Naturopathy also works to support the whole system and boost the immune system
  • Aromatherapy is very supportive of the emotional aspect of the disease and can also help with certain symptoms like insomnia, digestive issues
  • Herbalism is popular among women with endometriosis and is great at helping with various problems and can help with detox, healing, digestive issues
