Transcript of ENDOMETRIOSIS REVOLUTION
What is Endometriosis?
The Good News
Endometriosis is the medical name given to a gynecological disorder (or disease) characterized by the presence of normal endometrial mucosa (tissue and cells from the gland and stroma of the uterine cavity (uterus or womb) also called the endometrial tissue and endometrium), that has migrated and implanted itself in places other than its normal location. The normal location of the endometrial mucosa is the uterine cavity inside the uterus (womb).
*Severe abdominal pain during periods,
*Periods more often than 28 days,
*Early age of onset of periods,
*Family history of endometriosis,
*Pain when urinating during periods,
*Problems with allergies and or asthma,
*Problems getting pregnant,
*Diarrhea or constipation during periods,
Traditional treatment depends on the following factors:
Age, severity of disease, severity of symptoms, and whether or not you want to have children in the future.
There is a way to control and minimise endometriosis naturally without all the nasty side effects and surgery of traditional medical science options.
NORMAL LOCATION OF ENDOMETRIUM AND FEMALE ANATOMY

It is also possible that in a process yet unknown to medical science, the normal cells of the body are ....
Transformed into endometrial cells...!
Early Scar Tissue Which Appears As Dark Lesions
DO YOU HAVE ENDOMETRIOSIS?
For mild symptoms treatment can include:
Relaxation techniques and exercise,
Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs),
Prescription pain killers to relieve pain,
Traditional NSAIDs block the actions of both COX-1 and COX-2 (enzymes), which is why they can cause
stomach upset and bleeding
as well as ease pain and inflammation.
Some common traditional NSAIDs:
Aspirin (Hippocrates, A Greek, used a powder made from willow tree,
460 BC. Modern medicine discovered it was Salicin in 1829)
NSAIDs are relatively inexpensive and are frequently the first line of medication used to relieve pain and reduce inflammation- But they have serious side effects.
For intermediate and severe symptoms:
The above treatments, as well as surgery to remove the endometriosis or the whole womb, ovaries and other affected organs.
This treatment involves the use of "the pill" into tricking your body that it is in menopause. The ovaries will stop producing oestrogen, and will help reduce the growth of endometriosis lesions.
Endometriosis depends on oestrogens for survival and growth of the cells that make up the lesions that cause the pain and infertility.
Non of these drugs on their own can eliminate endometriosis completely. The symptoms will return after a year or two after stopping the "treatment". They just put the disease on hold!
The pill is a combination of oestrogen and a progestin element. There are a wide variety of pills on the market (over 40). they all have the same oestrogen part (estradiol form) but differ in the progestin part. Monophasic pills (same pill every day) have shown to give better results for endometriosis!
Side effects of the pill...
Excess hair growth,
Sweeling and water retention,
Reported cases of blood clotting and heart attacks connected to taking "the pill". Consult with your doctor if you have higher blood pressure or smoke.
Synthetic forms of testosterone (
) are used to reduce the ovaries production of oestrogen and progesterone.
This hormone is directly acting on the pituitary gland.
It is often used to shrink and soften the endometriotic lesions before the surgeon can go in and try and remove them.
Progestogen and Progesterone
Progesterone is a hormone that prepares the
womb for pregnancy.
It lowers the levels of oestrogen.
It also stops ovulation in pregnancy.
Progestogens are substances that mimic
what progesterone does.
Some progestogen drugs of choice for endometriosis:
It suppresses production two other hormones FSH and LH from the pituitary gland. These hormones stimulate the ovaries, and in their absence ovulation stops. So it helps to relieve the pain of endometriosis.
Gonadotropin releasing hormone
These drugs regulate the production of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), LH (lutenizing hormone) and CG (chronic gonadotropin).
They work by stopping ovulation, decreasing oestrogen levels and relieving the pain of endometriosis.
Common Drugs in this category:
all the above have serious side effects but LUPRON in particular has evidence of long term damage associated with its use.
For a natural way to eliminate endometriosis keep reading!
SOME LUPRON SIDE EFFECTS:
Rare but serious side effects may include:
Pain or unusual sensations in your back;
Numbness, weakness, or tingly feeling in your legs or feet;
Muscle weakness or loss of use;
Loss of bowel or bladder control; or
Nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine,
clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Bleeding, stomach irritation and ulcers, Spontaneous bruising, Insomnia, Skin rashes, Swelling.
Some of these may contain codeine, which can cause constipation and pelvic congestion, so not ideal for endometriosis; can actually make the pain worse!
Consult your doctor before using NSAIDs.

Stomach ulcer history
Taking blood thinners
Minor side effects :
Warning : Many pain killers contain a cocktail of drugs. Taking 2, or 3 different types can cause very serious side effects, even death! Talk to your doctor!

General Stages of Endometriosis
Flat patches, small lesions, minimal or no symptoms
Mild endometriosis, small implants, small area of adhesions and scar tissue. Pain is very common.
Moderate. Deep implants, several areas of scar tissue and adhesions. Pain and infertility are common.
Severe endometriosis: Many deep and superficial implants, with large areas and number of adhesions. Infertility is very common in this stage of the disease.
Superficial endometriosis: can be from 1mm-3 cm to over 3cm
Deep endometriosis: can be from 5 mm to over 4 cm (depending on location)
Superficial endometriosis of the peritoneum (1-3cm) = 2 points
Deep endometriosis of the peritoneum (>3cm) = 6 points
Deep endometriosis of the ovary (<1cm) = 4 points
Deep endometriosis of the ovary (>1cm) = 16 points
stage 1 = 1-5 points,
stage 2 = 6-15 points,
stage 3 = 16-40 points
Stage 4 = >40 points
Endometriosis stages and points
(How severity of the condition is categorized)
So for example, if you have three superficial lesions 1 cm each on the peritoneum, you will have 2x3 = 6 points total.
This puts you at stage 2 of the disease!

Feeling like you might pass out;
Sudden chest pain or discomfort, wheezing, dry cough or hack;

Sudden numbness or weakness (especially on one side of the body), problems with speech or balance;
Sudden headache with vision problems, vomiting, confusion, slow heart rate, weak pulse, fainting, or slow
breathing; or Chest pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling.
