Endometriosis is diagnosed when endometrial cells (which make up the inner lining of the uterus) are found outside of the uterus. Women with endometriosis often experience severe cramping during menstruation, lower back pain, irregular menses, pain during intercourse, and infertility. There is no western cure, other than hysterectomy, but if you’re looking for a natural way to reduce symptoms in order to improve your quality of life, acupuncture can help.
Endometriosis obstructs the normal flow of blood, often causing the blood to stagnate and accumulate, eventually becoming concretions in the body, which causes pain. Acupuncture can help to quicken the blood and transform stasis, promoting a more regular blood flow during menstruation, alleviating the painful symptoms, and providing a more “friendly” environment to achieve pregnancy. In fact, my Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center has seen several patients who suffer from endometriosis gain extraordinary results with a combination of acupuncture, nutritional supplements, and herbal medicine. One current patient told me, “I’ve had endometriosis since I was a teenager. I’ve literally been in extreme pain for over 18 years. I’ve seen three doctors, all with no results, and the pain just kept getting worse. After my first acupuncture appointment I noticed a difference, but as I continued my weekly visits, the results I’ve been feeling are astounding and have given me hope. TigerLily Acupuncture has changed my life!”
My Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center strives to improve our patients’ quality of life naturally, without the negative side effects of prescription drugs, by enabling the body to heal itself from the inside out. This is good news for any woman with endometriosis, especially if you’re trying to conceive. Call my Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center today to schedule an appointment or for more information.
