Herbal remedies for Endometriosis - Ayurvedic Treatment
Here are the herbal remedies for Endometriosis and their dosage.
1. Ashok Ghrit- 1 teaspoonful at night with milk... this is a medicated butter oil, to be consumed at night with milk..the taste is not so good, but it gives a lot of strength to the uterus and helps to heal the lining. ( 2 Bottles )
2. Cap. Female Health Support - 2 twice daily x 2 months ( 240 tablets)
8. Syp. Ashokarishta- 20 ml twice daily x 2 months
9. Curcumin Capsules - 2 twice daily
All these herbs are recommended for atleast 2 months and then there should be marked improvement in the condition. The medicine can be continued for 6 months even if there are too many uterine fibroids, adenomyosis ( adenomas), ovarian cysts, falllopian tube blockage and extensive bleeding associated --- Dr. Vikram - 29th Nov.08.
Do not think that these are 9-10 different medicines and its too much. These are all herbs. Imaging plucking a few leaves from the tree, making them into a pill will need how many leaves ?
The dosage for getting the results is about 5-6 leaves.. So 5-6 leaves do not go into a tablet or a capsule. So Ayurvedists need to use higher doses of herbs to get the desired results.
What is Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a health disorder of females in which the cells of uterus grow in other parts of the body causing pain, swelling, bleeding and infertility.
The endo metrium is the innermost layer of cells of uterus. They grow in size and number and over lap each others and also spread in other organs like fallopian tubes and cause blockages. This leads to thickening of internal wall of uterus, which leads to pain, inflammation, heavy / irregular bleeding, painful bleeding and most commonly infertility
Endometriosis affects about 3-15 % of the women. The exact cause is not known in modern medicine but according to Ayurveda - Stress is one of the leading cause of Endometriosis. Use of hormonal pills is also one of the reasons. Unwanted sex in which female partner is not mentally involved is also one of the reasons in some cases of endometriosis.
This disease is one of the leading cause of hystrectomy and laprotomy in majority of women. There are no specific treatment for endometriosis available in modern medicine other than surgery. Danazol - something similar to male hormones gives relief in some females but it causes male hormone side effects like growing of facial hair and hoarseness of voice. So ultimately there is no use of it.
Which Ayurvedic Herbs are best for Endometriosis
According to Ayurveda, there are certain herbs which are having hormonal balancing properties. These plants do contain female hormone precursors but the herbs have their anti-dotes also within them. This maintains a perfect balance which resolves the situation without causing any side effects. For example, the herb Saraca asoca contains analogues and precursors of female hormone estrogens in the form of phytoestrogens, but if there is excess in the body, it normalizes the hormones and does not cause any side effects. Similarly the other plants like Shatavari have progesterone like actions. The kachnaar Guggul works to shrink the membranes, tumor like cells, endometrial growth and so on. Curcumin is actually a natural pain relieving, inflammation reducing, anti-cancer herb. Although endometriosis is not cancerous but anything that grows out of proportion is known as "cancerous" in Ayurveda. So Ayureda has different ways of looking at things. The tumors, cancers, adenomas, swollen lymph nodes, growths, hyperplasias all respond really well to the Ayurvedic treatment containing herbs like Kachnaar Guggul and Curcumin.
If you look at this disease from Ayurvedic Vata- Pitta and Kapha point of view, the disease is caused by imbalance of all 3 doshas. First there is imbalance of Vata dosha, then Pitta dosha, the dushya is kapha which also vitiates Kapha dosha.
The herbal combination mentioned above is not only working on Kapha reducing ( reducing the no. of cells or scraping off / shredding the membranes off ) but also balances the metabolism of the functional cells of the uterus and ovaries. This leads to healthy cells formation in future, thereby leading to perfect harmony in the system. Slowly the bad cells are shredded and worn off and the healthy cells take over. The process takes about 6-9 months and one can avoid surgery and even avoid IVF or other measures to get pregnant.
