Endometriosis Treatment


How Can Acupuncture Help Endometriosis?


Endometriosis Treatment
Endometriosis is a condition that affects approximately 5% to 10% of women of child-bearing age, often resulting in infertility. At Eastern Healing we provide natural endometriosis treatment to women in Joliet, Wheaton and the Chicago area who want relief from this painful disorder and desire to restore health. Some women have very few symptoms, and may not realize they have endometriosis until they try to start a family.
Endometriosis therapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution; women have differing symptoms and degrees of severity, so treatment must be tailored to each patient. In Traditional Chinese Medicine some of the services include acupuncture, massage, herbal medicine, dietary therapy and other practices that work to promote self-healing in the body.

What is endometriosis? This condition occurs when the endometrium lining the uterus grows in other areas outside of the uterus. Endometrial cells may attach to the fallopian tubes, intestines, ovaries, bladder, bowel and other areas in the pelvic or abdominal region. Some of the risk factors that may contribute to the condition include genetic predisposition, high levels of estrogen, environmental toxins, low progesterone levels, radiation exposure, too much meat in the diet and others.

If you aren't certain you have this condition but suspect you do, some of the most common symptoms include:
  • • Unusually long period and heavy bleeding
  • • Abdominal swelling
  • • Abdominal and/or lower back pain
  • • Pain during urinating or bowel movement
  • • Swollen ovaries
  • • Painful sexual intercourse
  • • Infertility
  • • Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)
In conventional medicine, doctors often prescribe birth control pills to control hormones, progestin therapy, aromatase inhibitors and other drugs. Natural endometriosis treatment is highly beneficial because the focus is placed on pinpointing the root cause of disease in order to restore wellness and promote fertility. Conventional hormone therapy does not "cure" endometriosis and only masks the symptoms, which will likely return once treatment stops.

Serving Joliet, Wheaton and the Chicago Area

Additionally, if you are trying to become pregnant taking birth control pills or other hormone medications will interfere with your efforts. The reproductive system is one of several systems in the body; all work together as a whole, which is why it is essential to focus on overall health and well-being. Using acupuncture , herbal medicine, massage, nutrition and other practices of TCM in endometriosis therapy will work to reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress, balance hormones, regulate menstrual flow and support health and fertility.

At Eastern Healing our fertility specialists focus on women's health issues, including endometriosis. Safe, non-invasive, natural solutions are often the best medicine, either when used on their own or in conjunction with conventional medicine. If you are in Joliet, Wheaton or nearby cities in the Chicago area and want to know more about endometriosis treatment, call us now at 630-653-4358.
