Endometriosis is a disorder that can impact fertility and typically involves spreading of the endometrial tissue to pelvic organs including the fallopian tubes and ovaries. At ilumina Healing Sanctuary we provide women in Phoenix and Scottsdale with natural treatment and therapies for endometriosis.
We know that an integrative approach is often most effective for those who suffer from this common condition, and that addressing the underlying cause rather than treating symptoms is critical in restoring reproductive health.
Heavy or painful periods, painful intercourse, bloating or constipation/diarrhea during menstrual periods and infertility are the most common symptoms of endometriosis. In fact, many women are suspected of having endometriosis when seeking treatment for infertility. While traditional treatment involves pain medications, hormone therapy, contraceptives and other drugs, integrative medicine is often most effective and combines these treatments with acupuncture, abdominal massage, traditional Chinese medicine, vitamins and supplements, dietary changes, meditation and other therapies customized to each person's unique situation. The focus is on overall health and well-being, reducing stress, balancing hormones and supporting healthy immune function.

Endometriosis is one of many disorders that not only affect your ability to conceive, but your health as well.

Endometriosis is a medical condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, causing pain and potential fertility issues. While there is no definitive natural cure for endometriosis, some individuals find relief from symptoms through various natural and complementary approaches.
Some individuals with endometriosis find relief by following an anti-inflammatory diet, which may involve reducing or eliminating processed foods, gluten, dairy, and red meat. Emphasizing fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and omega-3 fatty acids from sources like fish or flaxseed may be beneficial. Omega-3 fatty acids, turmeric, and vitamin D supplements are sometimes considered for their potential anti-inflammatory effects. Regular exercise, adequate sleep, and maintaining a healthy weight can contribute to overall well-being and may help manage symptoms.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body and is thought by some to help manage pain associated with endometriosis.
Acupuncture may help alleviate pelvic pain and discomfort associated with endometriosis. Stimulating specific acupuncture points modulates pain perception and promote relaxation. Since endometriosis involves inflammation, this process contributes to reducing inflammation and associated symptoms. Additionally, acupuncture may help restore balances to the endocrine system, which regulates hormones.
Regular menstrual cycles contribute to more predictable ovulation and fertile windows. Acupuncture also helps regulate menstrual cycles, which is important for optimizing fertility. This may also enhance ovarian function and improve the quality of eggs. Increased blood flow to the uterus and ovaries may create a more favorable environment for conception. Stress can also impact fertility, and acupuncture's ability to induce relaxation may help reduce stress levels, supporting overall reproductive health. Some individuals undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) or other fertility treatments choose to complement their medical interventions with acupuncture.
