Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common condition affecting 10%–15% of women between the ages of 24 and 40. It is caused by the endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, growing outside the uterus. Endometriosis may contribute to the following symptoms:

  • Pain during menses
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Infertility
Treatment

While Western medicine tends to treat the symptoms, such as removing scar tissue and repairing structural problems, Chinese medicine focuses on addressing the underlying causes for inflammation.

Your practitioner will develop a personalized treatment program with you that may include:

  • Anti-inflammatory diet therapy
  • Chinese herbs and supplements
  • Acupuncture
