Endometriosis

WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Every month, women go through menstrual cycle –which prepares their body & reproductive system for possible pregnancy. Ovaries release the egg and the thick lining (endometrium) grows inside uterus for implantation of fertilized egg. When the endometrial lining grows outside of uterus cavity in other areas like- on the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, outside surface of the uterus, bowel, and on the membrane lining of the pelvic cavity (i.e. the peritoneum), this abnormal growth is called endometriosis.

When endometriosis takes place in ovaries, cysts called endometriomas form and irritate the surrounding tissue causing scars and developing sticky fibrous tissues –which make pelvic tissues and organs stick together. Whole reproductive system works in abnormal manner interfering with fertility of women.

Women with endometriosis cannot conceive, as implantation fails due to lack of normal uterine lining.

Fortitude Ayurveda Gynaecology & Pregnancy Care Clinic, tackles endometriosis with natural cure of Ayurveda+Yoga+Diet+Lifestyle Changes without any surgical invasions or harmful hormonal drugs.


Symptoms
  • Mild-Intense pain in pelvis & abdomen

Causes
  • Genetic (mother to daughter)
  • Abnormal functioning of Apana Vata Dosha
  • Imbalanced Hormones
  • Retrograde menstruation- Period bleeding containing endometrial cells flows back through the fallopian tubes into the pelvic cavity instead of flowing out. These displaced endometrial cells stick to the pelvic walls and surface of pelvic organs.
  • Transformation of peritoneal cells- Hormones or immune factors transform of peritoneal cells (cells that line the inner side of your abdomen) - into endometrial cells.
  • Embryonic cell transformation- Estrogen hormone transforms embryonic cells (cells in first stage after fertilisation) into endometrial cell implants during puberty.
  • Surgical scar implantation- After surgery in or around pelvic or abdominal area, endometrial cells gets attached to a surgical cut.
  • Endometrial cells transport- Blood vessels or tissue fluid (lymphatic) transports endometrial cells to other parts of the body.
  • Immune system disorder- Due to problem in immune system, body is unable to recognise and destroy endometrial tissue which is growing outside the uterus.
