What are the updates on Endometriosis?

What are the updates on Endometriosis? There have been many plans of treatment in the past and the main ones are still prescribing the oral contraceptive pill or inserting a Mirena (these only mask the underlying cause) and don't always offer relief from symptoms. A Laparoscopy is done to diagnose (this is important) and also to remove mild endometriosis or scar tissue. These do not always offer any long term relief as the Endometriosis is still there (laying dormant) as it comes back again or it could be something else entirely. The latest research suggests that Endometriosis is any inflammatory disease which affects our immune system and our hormones (low progesterone & high oestrogen (oestrogen dominance)) along with our digestive system (Leaky Gut Syndrome.) In the case of Leaky Gut Syndrome this is linked to gut dysbiosis or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO.) Endometriosis has similar inflammatory markers as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). As a Naturopath finding out exactly what symptoms you have along with functional testing - hormone testing and being tested for SIBO is a great starting point. It is important to remember that your periods should never be painful! Flooding (heavy blood flow) and clots are not normal either. Want to find out more? Book your consultation via Women's Health
