Herbs For Endometriosis

Herbs for endometriosis have their place in the larger scheme of things. In traditional Chinese Medicine, the bad state of the liver is considered to be the root of endometriosis. Empower the liver and gradually the endo will subside. So, the following herbs have effect both on the hormones and the liver:

Vitex agnus-cactus (Chasteberry) effects pituitary gland, the “conductor” to the orchestra of internal glands. Vitex will adjust female hormones and regulate menstruation, and will also help in endometriosis, PMS and dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation). Chasteberry also helps the liver to process and excrete estrogen — less estrogen means no estrogen domination or none at all.

Angelica senensis (Don Quai) acts as a hormone balancer and is an indispensable herb for treatment of female reproductive disorders. It is a tonic herb for the reproductive system and will address the overall health of your reproductive organs and is especially useful in treatment of irregular periods, polycystic ovarian syndrome, estrogen dominance and endometriosis. Don Quai is also a well-known liver tonic and blood pressure regulator.

Silybum marianus (Milk Thistle) This protects the liver from damage by viruses, pollution, stress and toxins. It is also a potent antioxidant; laboratory studies indicate it may have useful anti-cancer properties.

Dioscorea villosa (Chinese Yam) is an excellent natural liver and nervous system tonic. It is also known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties and will decrease menstrual pain as well as inflammation associated with endometriosis that leads to scar tissue.

Viburnum opulus (30C) is a homeopathic remedy known for its effectiveness in treating painful menstruation, especially backache.

You should be taking these herbs several months in a row, to see the effects. And you can do other things for your endometriosis at the same time, besides taking the herbs for endometriosis.
