Natural Treatment for Endometriosis
It is estimated that up to 15% of women of childbearing age have endometriosis. This condition can have many painful and frustrating symptoms, as well as impact fertility. The exact cause of endometriosis is not known, but it has been linked to immunologic dysfunction, genetics, hormonal imbalance, nutrition and other factors. At Wholistic Medicine Specialists of Atlanta, we offer natural treatment for endometriosis to help our female patients improve their overall health.
Endometriosis occurs when uterine or endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus. This tissue can grow in the ovaries or fallopian tubes, resulting in a wide variety of symptoms and health issues. Even though the endometrial tissue is outside of the uterus, it still responds to the menstrual cycle as it would if located within the uterus. These changes can cause a variety of symptoms and impact fertility.
For advanced, holistic endometriosis treatment, turn to Dr. Bongiovanni or Dr. Patel at WMSOA. At our Naturopathic medical practice, we believe that one-size-fits-all medicine is no longer acceptable, desirable or successful. Instead, we combine excellent patient care, innovative laboratory assessments and cutting-edge natural medicines to provide a unique service that is tailored to each patient and their individual biochemistry.
What are the Symptoms of Endometriosis?
The symptoms of endometriosis vary depending on where the endometrial tissue resides. Some of the common symptoms can include:
- Painful periods
- Lengthened periods
- Lower back and pelvis discomfort or pain
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Discomfort during urination or bowel movements
When endometriosis has been diagnosed, there are natural treatment options available. Our holistic doctor will perform hormonal testing and other diagnostic testing to determine other factors that may be contributing to the condition. Balancing hormones, regulating immune or inflammatory responses, improving nutrition and supporting the detoxification of the body are some natural treatments that can improve overall health and symptoms of endometriosis.
