endometriosis is a common disorder, and most often occurs in women between the ages of 25 and 40. Symptoms vary and may worsen with time. Besides surgeries, most women are likely to find natural therapies to heal the endometriosis.

1. the herbal medicine

From the Chinese medical point of the view, the main causes of endometriosis are gas stagnation blood stasis, cold-damp stagnation, spleen and kidney qi deficiency with wet muddy and blood stasis. And the herbal medicine works to eliminate inflammation, kill bacteria, clear heat, eliminate toxins and promote blood circulation etc. It will take 3-4 months to get a cure without any side effect.

2. nutritional therapy

There are some foodstuffs that can be the adjuvant therapy for endometriosis, such as agaric soup, litchi drink,peach kemel porridge, crucian carp soup, black beans and red flowers drink and so on. However, during this treatment, patients need to be on a strict diet control: do not have spicy food, smoking and alcohol; every cold food must be avoided.

3. massage

Another common cause attributed to endometriosis is stress. And massage therapy is one of the most effective methods researched in reducing stress for women. A massage therapist can promote blood circulation and improve the function of the immune system through lymphatic drainage massage and other massage therapies.

4. yoga

Certain yoga postures can provide relief from the symptoms and increase the quality of life for those suffering from endometriosis. It is important to practice under proper supervision from an experienced yoga instructor or yoga therapist. Endometriosis affects each woman's body differently. Not all yoga poses will produce the same benefits for everyone. It is very important to work gradually and find out what works best for you.

At last, patients should know that nutritional therapy, massage and yoga are just considered as adjuvant therapies, and it is important that patients should tell their doctors about the kinds of natural therapies you are using (or considering) as they may affect other treatments that you might be using.
