Endometriosis is a condition that results from endometrial cells (the lining of the uterus) migrating outside the uterus to other areas in the body.
These cells turn into cysts and the cysts slowly grow larger and can cause much pain.
Not always, but most of the time these cells migrate to these areas;
Endometriosis Can Have many Symptoms & One of The Most Heartbreaking is The Infertility That It Can cause.
That's in Addition to The Excruciating Physical Pain It Can Bring.
Endometriosis is Only One of Many Problems That Can Be Caused by Hormone Imbalance & Restoring Natural Hormone Balance Can Eliminate It!
As the cells within the endometrium (lining of the uterus) swell and grow with the rise of estrogen in the first part of the monthly cycle, so do all the endometrial cells that migrated outside the uterus.
Common endometriosis symptoms are:
Estrogen is a mitogen and causes cells to proliferate. It's also an inflammatory hormone. Progesterone is an anti-inflammatory and calming hormone that inhibits mitosis (cell growth).
Excess estrogen feeds the inflammation, making the condition worse. But because it's a mitogen, it causes the cells to divide and multiply. Symptoms subside after menopause when estrogen levels have dropped.
Stress also exacerbates endometriosis.
Environmental toxins also cause inflammation.
Endometriosis pain can be very severe, the symptom that causes the most concern is infertility. Forty per cent of women with endometriosis are infertile.
The infertility is caused by the uterine lining being too inflamed for the newly developed embryo to implant. It's essential to reduce the inflammation for implantation to take place.
This can be done with natural supplements, specifically vitamin D, plus progesterone.
In normal circumstances, between 100-200mg/day of progesterone is sufficient, but endometriosis is the result of chronic oxidative stress.
This causes inflammation that can be mild to severe. In severe cases 500mg/day will be needed. Its best to go by severity of symptoms, adjusting dosage higher or lower as the weeks go by.
A low level of vitamin D can affect progesterone absorption so take 5000 units of Vitamin D3 per day to ensure best results.
Men can use progesterone daily because they don't have a monthly cycle.
The different recommendations given and the misinformation many women have received regarding progesterone has caused many women to abandon it.
In many of these cases a better understanding of how to use progesterone properly would have given them the results they wanted.
For general use and to reverse mild symptoms 100-200mg/day progesterone is needed. If severe problems are experienced 400-500mg/day are needed.
When symptoms have reduced the amount should be reduced very slowly, until your optimum level is found.
Please Note: It's essential to reduce progesterone when symptoms begin to subside but don't stop taking it because symptoms may return. Some make this mistake and end up quitting progesterone when they still need some.
It should be used at least twice a day since levels begin dropping after about 13 hours. In severe cases, it can be applied hourly.
When starting on progesterone your cycle can be disrupted and periods can be earlier or later than normal. This is nothing to be concerned about, the normal cycle length will reestablish itself within a few cycles.
If spotting occurs, continue using progesterone until bleeding starts.
If a full period occurs stop using the progesterone, and begin it again 12-14 days before the next period. For further explanation on this see under Normal Cycle Lengths below.
Bleeding can be heavier in the first few cycles, which is nothing to be concerned about. This is old uterine lining which has not been shed previously.
When your endometriosis symptoms subside, your cycle should be regular and infertility should not be an issue if you are in good health.
Hormone Imbalance is The Major Cause of Most Female Reproductive Issues.
Not all women have a 28 day cycle. That's just an average.
All women ovulate 12 to 14 days before their period begins. This is called the luteal phase.
For women, progesterone should be used during the luteal phase - from ovulation to when the period starts.
Endometriosis is only one symptom directly related to women's reproductive system.
Many reproductive symptoms are due to hormone imbalance and progesterone can be thought of as the mother of all hormones in the human body, whether you are male or female, since progesterone is used to make the other hormones in the body.
Better morning habits can improve digestion and better digestion helps with weight loss.
Before eating or drinking anything that you usually have, such as coffee, toast, eggs, etc., eat some fruit. Apple, pineapple, kiwi, oranges, mangoes, etc.
Then wait a half hour before eating anything else. Better yet, wait until 9-10 am to eat anything else.
Any fruit is good but the acid type fruits are the best to help clean out and heal the digestive system. The acids help to wash out toxins and the raw nutrients help to heal the soft digestive tissues.
On an empty stomach, which is usually the case if you haven't eaten late the night before, it takes less than half an hour to digest fresh fruit. Even faster digestion takes place with only one type of fruit.
Raw apples also help many people with acid reflux issues!!
