Natural Endometriosis Treatment
With Dr. Denise Wiesner, L.Ac.
Endometriosis is a common issue many West LA and Santa Monica women face, and one that can affect fertility. At Natural Healing & Acupuncture our holistic fertility specialists provide treatment and therapies that address endometriosis in a natural way, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and more. Our focus is on women’s health and fertility; we believe in a natural approach to overall health and balance of all the systems in the body.
Endometriosis is a condition that affects the endometrial tissue that lines the uterus, causing the tissue to grow in areas where it is not supposed to grow such as the fallopian tubes, uterus, intestines or other places in the lower pelvic and abdominal region. You may have irregular menstrual cycles, pain or other symptoms that are common among women with the condition. Teens and women between the ages of 14 and 60 are most susceptible to endometriosis, however proper treatment can ease symptoms while uncovering the underlying cause of the problem and improving fertility.
Holistic medicine practitioners know the power of acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition therapy and other “natural” methods of promoting health and well-being in the body. Rather than focus on one specific area such as the reproductive system, we view the body as a “whole” made up of all of the body’s systems, organs and cells. Improving and promoting wellness throughout the body is vital to a healthy reproductive system and fertility.
Acupuncture is a natural, non-invasive approach often used in women who suffer from endometriosis to reduce pain, ease stress and balance the energy or “Qi” in the body. This ancient Chinese practice promotes bloodflow to the uterus, helps balance hormones, regulates circulation and more. Herbal medicines are often suggested for each patient’s specific needs as they assist in balancing hormones, reducing stress, nourishing organs and detoxifying the body.
Proper nutrition is key in treating endometriosis; consuming a healthy diet encourages the production of anti-inflammatory compounds, supports the liver as it functions to balance hormones, and helps eliminate taking in too many hormone-like additives or substances found in many processed foods. The ultimate goal is to achieve optimum overall health physically, emotionally and spiritually. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when you have the tools and know how to use them to promote your own health and fertility.
Serving West Los Angeles & Santa Monica
Some women who have endometriosis are not even aware of it, while others experience substantial pain. This condition can be caused by hormonal imbalances, and experts believe estrogen plays a big role in the disease. Our natural fertility specialists know how acupuncture, oriental medicine, and even nutrition can impact estrogen levels, thus increasing fertility and easing the symptoms. If you experience pain in the lower back, chronic pelvic pain or painful intercourse, or irregular menstrual cycles, severe cramps, or diarrhea, constipation, bloating or other gastrointestinal symptoms you could be suffering from endometriosis.
