Endometriosis Homeopathic Management



Endometriosis is a condition characterised by growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus . The tissue enters the pelvic cavity via  the tubes and may be found at several sites – on the ovaries , retro uterine pouch , outer surface of the uterus, sigmoid colon, pelvic and abdominal lymph nodes the cervix , abdominal wall , the kidneys and the urinary bladder . Endometrial tissue responds to hormonal fluctuations. With each cycle the tissue proliferates and then breaks down and bleeds. When this occurs outside the uterus , it causes pain, inflammation, scarring , infertility . There is unusually severe menstrual pain or premenstrual pain

Fibrosis of the fallopian tubes  owing to endometriosis is a common cause of infertility  and of tubal ectopic pregnancy . Endometriosis of the ovary may give rise to a chocolate cyst – a cyst filled with altered blood .

It is important to take a detailed case history and arrive at a constitutional prescription . However these are the commonly indicated drugs for endometriosis but treatment should be strictly under a homoeopathic physician .
