Acupuncture for Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus (endometrium) grows in other areas of the body, such as the pelvic area, outside of the uterus, on the ovaries, bowel, rectum, bladder; causing pain, irregular bleeding, and possible infertility.

How does acupuncture work for Endometriosis?

Endometriosis can be helped in a number of ways.

First, it is thought that this condition is related to a relative excess of estrogen; and acupuncture can help balance these hormones.

Second, the actual pain is caused by inflammation; and acupuncture has been shown to be anti-inflammatory.

Third, part of the problem with endometriosis may be a dysfunction of the muscle of the uterus, forcing menstruating tissue backward through the fallopian tubes causing the endometrial plagues. Acupuncture may strengthen the function of uterus muscle, help to reduce the rate of endometriosis.

Finally, acupuncture improves the perception of pain by working on the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve through modifying the action of brain chemicals (endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, etc).

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
