What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis brings chronic pain to many because tissue that should line the uterus begins to grow elsewhere. This can lead to severe pain, bleeding patterns that are out of the ordinary, and it may lead to infertility. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, and tissues within the pelvis are often involved.

We’re not quite sure what results in endometriosis, but it could be tied to hormone levels, having relatives with the same issue, issues with immune response, infection, or menstrual blood moving in reverse into the pelvis.

An all-encompassing treatment plan for endometriosis can improve your well-being greatly and reduce or remove painful symptoms.


Endometriosis Symptoms

A number of symptoms can signal the presence of endometriosis. The experience of these symptoms will differ for each person, with some having several and others only a few.
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain
  • Painful menstrual periods (dysmenorrhea, which can sometimes cause severe pain)
  • Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)
  • Gastrointestinal issues (such as diarrhea, issues with bowel movements, constipation, or bloating)
  • Fatigue
  • Lower back pain

How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?

To diagnose endometriosis, healthcare providers start by discussing the patient’s health background and carrying out a hands-on assessment, focusing on the pelvic area. They often take pictures from inside the body with special tools. In certain cases, a narrow instrument is inserted near the stomach to view the uterus up close, and small tissue samples may be collected for examination.

What To Expect

Tailored holistic therapy for endometriosis accounts for the distinct requirements of each patient. Treatment durations typically range from 4 to 6 months, though they can be prolonged if necessary.

During Your Initial Consultation

In the initial session with Dr. Yuabova, she will take the time to understand the health problems and symptoms you’ve been dealing with. She’ll also review your medical history, and with your permission, do an energy examination of your whole body.

This approach leads to more in-depth testing, helping Dr. Yuabova determine the specific tests required. Following the diagnosis of the endometriosis trigger, a full blood workup will be conducted to gather evidence, setting the stage for your personalized treatment plan.

During Your Follow-Up Appointments

Your individualized endometriosis treatment plan will incorporate diverse strategies to meet your specific needs. Ongoing support is offered to guide you through the implementation of the treatment plan. Dr. Yuabova and her team will regularly check in with you every 2 to 4 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes endometriosis pain?
Endometriosis pain is triggered by the presence of endometrial cells spreading outside the uterus, causing inflammation, scarring, and adhesions in the pelvic area, particularly during menstrual periods.
How can endometriosis cause infertility?
Endometriosis might be a hurdle in achieving pregnancy. It causes extra tissue or scar formation that can stop eggs from reaching their destination in the fallopian tubes needed for fertilization. The hormonal shifts linked to this condition can interfere with the natural cycle of menstruation and the release of eggs. Additionally, the inflammation from endometriosis might lower the effectiveness of sperm and eggs, further decreasing the possibility of becoming pregnant.
How is holistic treatment for endometriosis different from traditional treatment methods?
Those battling endometriosis might try several remedies, including common over-the-counter meds, doctor-prescribed pain management, surgical intervention to eliminate the lesions, or in extreme scenarios, a complete hysterectomy. Yet, these methods usually don’t solve the baseline issue that causes the condition.

The aim of Dr. Yuabova is to pinpoint the precise health concern causing your endometriosis. This aids her in choosing the most appropriate treatment strategy. She often suggests a comprehensive blood panel test to understand your hormone levels and assess your overall health status.

How can you treat endometriosis holistically?
Holistically managing endometriosis entails incorporating lifestyle changes and natural therapies alongside conventional medical treatments. These holistic approaches are designed to complement traditional interventions by promoting a proactive approach to well-being, prioritizing overall health enhancement and symptom alleviation.

Conversely, conventional medicine typically adopts a reactive approach to treating endometriosis, employing medications for pain relief, hormonal therapies to regulate endometrial tissue growth, or surgical methods to remove endometriosis tissue and scar tissue.
