Endometriosis is a chronic condition in which endometrial tissue (the inner lining of the uterus that is shed each month during menses) is found outside of the uterus and implanted within the pelvic cavity. Symptoms include pain before and during menstrual periods, pain with sexual intercourse, abdominal bloating, pain during urination or bowel movements, pelvic tenderness, premenstrual spotting, abnormally heavy or long menstrual periods, rectal bleeding during menstrual periods, and an inability to become pregnant. Many experts suggest that women with this condition implement strategies that help to tone down the effects of estrogen on endometrial tissue, as estrogen stimulates the growth of endometrial tissue.
A female support nutrient should contain natural agents that help tone down the over stimulation of estrogen that is involved in endometriosis and other female hormonal imbalance problems.
An essential fatty acid should contain the perfect blend of essential oils shown to reduce the inflammation associated with endometriosis and other inflammatory conditions.
A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain important dosages of Vitamin E, Magnesium and B-vitamins that have a positive effect on reproductive tissues. The nutrients in this product also enhance the anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative effects of essential oils in the management of endometriosis and other inflammatory conditions.
Additional Supplement Considerations:
(one large tablespoon per day) – Ground flaxseeds give rise to unique lignans that have been shown to help tone down the over stimulation of estrogen on reproductive tissues, which may be helpful in the management of endometriosis. It also contains a type of fiber that helps the body more efficiently eliminate excess estrogen from the body.
