What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis occurs when the lining of the uterus (endometrium) which is normally shed every month during menstruation is implanted outside the uterus, such as ovaries, colon, fallopian tube, resulting in areas of inflammation. Endometriosis affects about 5-10% of reproductive-aged women. Women with endometriosis may present symptoms such as menstrual cramps, body pain, constipation, diarrhea, infertility, painful intercourse etc.

What causes endometriosis?

One popular hypothesis is called “Retrograde Menstruation”, the backflow of menstrual blood through the fallopian tubes and into the abdominal cavity causes endometriosis. The pelvic cavity is a very crowded visceral space hosting small and large intestines, uterus, ovaries, bladder, kidneys and a very dense network of blood and lymphatic vessels. There is a space between the ovary and the fallopian tube, and blood can escape the uterus through this passage into the pelvic cavity, spreading the endometrial tissue to the neighbour organs and causing further problems in other system. e.g. Digestive issue, fertility issue etc,

Conventional treatments are pain medications, hormonal medications(mainly birth control pills), surgery for severe and late stage cases. None of above addresses the blood flow blockage issue that mentioned in “Retrograde Menstruation”.

Chinese medicine endometriosis approach

At Kampo Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture clinic, we apply Chinese Medicine principles to treat endometriosis in three fronts: Blockage of blood flow, Heat/inflammatory response. Stress management. Pain and hormones are not actually the focus here. Chinese medicine thinks unregulated stress response and inflammatory response disturb the balance of the hormone system, as well as the free flow of Qi and blood. Therefore by reducing stress and decreasing heat/inflammation, clearing the blood blockage not only results in reduction, even elimination of pain and cramps, but also a better balanced hormone system. Chinese medicine achieve this goal through the means of herbal medicine, acupuncture, and change of unhealthy lifestyle and diet.
