Homeopathy helps with ENDOMETRIOSIS
Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of endometrial cells. They normally form inside of the uterus, but in this condition they grow outside the womb, usually on other organs of the pelvis, particularly the ovaries and fallopian tubes. These cells are usually shed each month during menstruation.
The symptoms of Endometriosis include painful periods, heavy periods, pelvic pain that is worse during menstruation, ovarian cysts, painful intercourse, painful bowel movements or urination, sickness, constipation and diarrhea, and infertility.
Endometriosis affects women mainly of childbearing age, and the pain and distress it causes can have a significant impact on the ability of the woman to live her life normally, and can lead to depression.
Homeopathy has highlighted a number of remedies that have been found to be useful in its treatment.
