Endometriosis Ayurvedic Treatment & Diet to Avoid Surgery

Endometriosis is a condition or gynecological disorder where there is an abnormal growth of tissue outside the uterus instead of being inside the uterus. It involves ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis. The most common symptoms are painful periods, painful intercourse, excessive bleeding during periods, infertility, nausea, vomiting, painful bowel movements or urination, constipation and severe pelvic pain.

Most common causes of Endometriosis are genetics, impaired immune system, aging, environmental toxins and retrograde menstruation.

According to Ayurveda, this is more common in Kapha prakriti women. It can be categorized as Kapha rog by function and Pitta rog by location. Hormonal imbalance, blood flow and any inflammation in endomertrium is caused due to vitiated pitta dosha while overgrowth of endometrial cells is due to Kapha dosha. It is even said that vitiated Vata dosha displaces the endometrial cells from their location in uterus to outside.
