Acupuncture & herbal Medicine Can Effectively Manage Endometriosis
Endometriosis is the abnormal location of uterine tissue outside of the uterus. It is a fairly common condition affecting up to 10 % of women between age16 and 50, and is believed to be the cause of infertility in 30-50% of all infertile women. The cause of endometriosis is still unclear.
It could be a variety of disorders: hormonal imbalances, immune system dysfunction, reflux menstruation and heredity factors. Patients usually suffer greatly with very limited choices of treatment. Conventional medicine, in the main, consists of hormonal blockage and/or surgery. These therapies are only temporary, suppress the symptoms and, more often, cause significant side effects and a high rate of recurrence.
Chinese medicine has been used successfully in treating a wide range of women’s health disorders including endometriosis. Acupuncture and herbal medicine has been proven safe and effective in managing endometriosis, the result of thousands of years of practice and modern scientific studies in terms of both pain relief and in healing the condition at a deeper level..
A recent study in lab shows acupuncture combine with Chinese herbal medicine are the best for endometriosis treatment compared with other controlled groups:a model group, a group only receiving pharmaceutical medication for the treatment of endometriosis, a group receiving acupuncture with Chinese herbal medicine, a group receiving only Chinese herbal medicine, a sham control group.
