Any of these symptoms are distressing, but in combination can be unbearable. If left untreated, endometriosis can become the cause of female infertility. Western medical treatment is limited to pain management using pain killers, anti-inflammatory drugs, hormonal medication and surgery. As the problem recurs, women suffering with endometriosis can spend a lot of their lives taking various drugs and struggling with their fertility.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine Approach
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views endometrial lesions as static blood – blood that is not flowing as it should, thus causing problems. This is not so different from a western understanding; because the maligned blood is located in an area where normal blood flow is absent or minimal, our bodies have a harder time resolving it. TCM looks at the symptoms and signs that characterise an individual woman’s disease, identifying patterns that give clues as to the underlying imbalance, or root cause, of the disease. Treatment is thus tailored to the individual, but may consist of acupuncture and herbal medicine.
Treatment of Endometriosis
Chinese Medicine uses a range of treatments such as Acupuncture, Cupping and Moxibustion along with herbs, herbal supplements and tea. The effect of these can be enhanced by lifestyle changes.

Acupuncture helps to relieve pain, regulate circulation and correct Qi energy imbalances. Chinese herbal formulas will be given to fit specific disease patterns, helping to detoxify the body, nourish organs, decrease pain, balance hormones and regulate the immune system function naturally.
Herbs and Herbal Supplements
Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on the principles of Yin Yang Balance, in line with this principle TCM considers there to be 2 main patterns that are identified with Endometriosis. Namely, Liver Stress causing Qi stagnant and Blood stasis along with Kidney and Spleen Yang deficiency causing poor blood circulation. Based on the diagnosis and your medical history, our TCM experts will make person recommendations for herbs and supplements to provide relief from Endometriosis.
Cupping can effectively minimise toxins which are circulating around the pelvic and abdomen area by drawing them into skin from where they more removed easily, providing pain relief.
Moxibustion effectively boosts Qi and Yang energy level, speeding up vital Qi flow, reducing accumulated blood clotting, and or accumulated body fluid, or Qi stagnant which help eliminates pain.
Nutritional therapy is also important for those suffering with endometriosis. Chinese medicine encourages the body to produce natural anti-inflammatory compounds through proper nutrition. As the liver is responsible for detoxifying excess estrogen, foods that support the liver will be recommended, in order to naturally decrease estrogen levels.
TCM provides alternative drug free treatment for those suffering with endometriosis, without side effects. More and more women are experiencing the benefits of these remedies, which can cure or significantly improve endometriosis, as well as increase the likelihood of conception in cases where fertility has been impacted.
