Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common gynecological condition that is thought to affect up to 10 % of women. Endometriosis occurs when the uterus lining, the endometrium, grows outside of the uterine cavity. Most often, the ovaries, pelvis lining and Fallopian tubes are affected. Although it is unusual for endometrial tissue to spread elsewhere in the body, it is not impossible.

With acupuncture, laser acupuncture, chinese herbs, naturopathic advice and tuina massage we can help you to resolve symptoms of endometriosis.

Signs & Symptoms

In our experience, the most common symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain associated with the menstrual period. Our patients also report the following symptoms:

Because endometriosis shares many symptoms with other conditions that cause pelvic pain and gastrointestinal issues, it is important to be assessed by a medical professional.

Causes

Possible causes of endometriosis include:

  • Retrograde menstruation
  • Hormonal issues
  • Genetic factors
  • Tissue implantation on abdominal scars
  • Altered immune response
  • Severe and chronic stress

How We Treat Endometriosis

If left untreated, endometriosis can greatly alter a person’s quality of life. Fortunately, Traditional Chinese Medicine is very effective in the areas of pain management and hormonal balance. For each of our patients, after an initial consultation meeting, we design an individualized treatment plan that combines :

  • Acupuncture and laser acupuncture,
  • Chinese herbs,
  • Tuina medical massage,
  • Naturopathy and reflexology.

 

In cases when surgery is needed, we at the Nei Jing center of Chinese medicine in Jerusalem can also offer support throughout the pre-operative and recovery process.

People Say

I have only one ovary left, and that one has endometriosis in it. I came to the Nei Jing clinic as a last resort, before a surgery that I wanted to avoid if I could. I’ve had regular acupuncture and a herbal treatment for four months now, and I find it helps with the pain a lot. It’s my plan to start trying for a baby soon, so hopefully it will help as well!

I’ve been doing acupuncture every month for the last year, and it’s been the most helpful treatment I found so far to manage my endometriosis. It just makes my period so much better. I was in a great deal of pain before, and often had to stay in bed for a couple of days, every time. I went from this to being able to get up and even run a few errands outside the house. I still have to rest a lot during periods, but this is a definite improvement.
