Endometriosis and Ayurveda Pathology & Treatment

 

The three energy forces Vata,Pitta and Kapha are responsible individually or together for the symptoms of Endometriosis.Vata especially Apana Vata is responsible for the downward movement of menstrual and excretory fluids. When there is imbalance of vata it may cause painful menstruation, irregular menstruation.

The imbalance of Pitta can cause hormonal imbalance,heavy bleeding, burning sensation , Infection or Inflammation.Balancing Kapha helps in Scraping action of the scar tissue and removing the blockage.The main cause of infertility in endometriosis is due to the inability of the ovaries to release ovum or due to inflammation of the fallopian tubes which inhibits the transportation of sperm or ovum for fertilisation.

At NaturoAyur, Ayurveda herbal medications are chosen after careful physical analysis and medicines are prescribed to balance out the imbalanced doshas and relieve the symptoms.In certain Individuals depending upon the conditions, along with internal medication certain external treatments like Vaginal douche(Uttara basti), Therapeutical enema or Massage is suggested for better results.
